The Traditionalist Couple
Traditionalist Couples are those who prefer huge, customary weddings to entertain their circle of friends, colleagues and relatives.

The Exclusionary Couple
The Exclusionary Couple, likewise, veers towards a traditional wedding, but one that is more intimate and exclusive. Sometimes, this calls for a well-ventilated ballroom to accommodate various unique arrangements. As for the food, such couples may prefer menus that allow for better choice or budget control.
The Unconventional Couple

To make their big day even more special, you may even want to include a dish from the groom’s hometown, a treat from the bride’s childhood or a dessert from the city where they first met!
