Once a Sister, Always a Sister: Sorority Wedding Traditions

Do you know what we love about weddings? We have an excuse to watch Say Yes to the Dress on a non-stop loop in our studio. And obsessively scroll through pages and pages of wedding hashtags. And compare engagement rings online. Harry Styles and Liam Hemsworth, if you’re reading this, we’re prepared and ready for ya.

Over the last few months (and in the next few months), our A-List Team has been traveling all over, wedding guesting and impressing. During our wedding adventures, we’ve collected some cute sorority traditions for you to file in the back of your mind for when your big day comes around. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry, and some will make you go Pinterest crazy!

Pin Your Sisters– The bride made a boutonniere for each of her sorority sisters in attendance. They wore the pins on their left side, like badges, and each of the boutonnieres were made up of clusters of the sorority flower. How cute is that?

Gather ‘Round– Some sororities have particular songs for this next tradition, while others use a song that they made up or particularly like. Either way, it’s pretty powerful to see women bound by sisterhood encircling the bride and groom and serenading them. It was like the bride’s sisters were sending them good vibes through their song!
