1 in 5 believe brides wearing a white dress for their wedding is officially a dated tradition

According to a new poll, two-thirds of Americans agree that planning a wedding today is more difficult today than it was for previous generations.

A poll of 2,000 people who’ve either recently planned or attended a wedding revealed that the majority (42%) need between six months and a year to plan their wedding.

While only one in five (20%) believe they could do so in less than six months, and 23% need more than a year.

Compared to other generations, the majority (41%) of millennials need between six months and a year and 17% would need one to two years.

Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Minted, the survey aimed to uncover how today’s weddings mix modern trends with traditional customs, and to see what wedding customs are getting relegated to the past.

One in five believe the practice of the bride wearing a white dress is officially a dated tradition.

Another almost one in five (19%) polled think that mother-son and father-daughter dances are an outdated tradition, with 19% of millennials agreeing.

A quarter of people think that the trend of the bride not being seen before the ceremony is now old-fashioned.

About one in four (23%) believe that the modern tradition of having more than one Maid of Honor or Best Man is here to stay.

And one in five (20%) feel that non-gendered wedding parties are the future.

“More and more we are seeing that couples are prioritizing a celebration that is truly authentic to them and rooted in what they find important. Inclusivity and acceptance have taken center stage. While many couples still honor traditions of the past, they are also incorporating new customs with personal meaning,” said a Minted Weddings spokesperson.

The survey also showed that the perfect number of wedding guests for this summer’s gatherings is exactly 115.

And choosing those guests is no easy task as more than a quarter (28%) say that creating the guest list is one of the biggest obstacles.
