Traditions are often synonymous with weddings, many couples love and look forward to carrying down wedding traditions that have been in their family for decades past, but as the years go on, more and more bride and groom's to-be are looking to shake things up and start their own traditions for their Big Day. Love the idea of trying something new at your wedding, but not sure what to choose with all of the ideas out there? We've compiled a round-up of a few of our favorite tradition ideas for the bride and groom.

  1.  A Potting Ceremony
