While it may seem that all wedding planning should be the same, that’s actually not the case. And if you’re a millennial you’ll know what we’re talking about!

Here, JoAnn Gregoli of Elegant Occasions in Denville tells us how millennials plan a wedding!
They break with tradition. Don’t want to get married in a church? Don’t. Don’t like tossing of the bouquet? Ditch it. Postpone the honeymoon for a year? Why not!
They ditch white gowns for colored gowns, two-piece outfits and pantsuits.
Cakes have been replaced by cheese, donuts, pies—and even Rice Krispies treats. 4. Glamping experiences are now a wedding option. To learn more, see “Must-Haves for Your Glamping Wedding.”5. Personalization is big, and millennials are keen on making their wedding their own. Whether it’s a unique location, custom signs, favorite desserts, or signature drinks, personalized weddings are the way to go.
