Newlyweds wear tracksuits to wedding reception and opinions are divided

Weddings are great and all, but after a few hours of drinking and eating in formal gowns, heels and suits, all we want are comfy clothes and quite possibly a nap.

Sometimes, we equate these feelings with guests only, but the brides and grooms can feel it too.

However, supposed societal rules are rules, and the bride is meant to wear a gown – and the groom a three-piece suit – for the entire day.

But one pair of newlyweds have turned wedding standards on their heads by mixing style and comfort together.

Wedding videographer Sarah Gonzalez of Wildwood Films shared footage on her Instagram of a couple who decided to wear tracksuits to their wedding reception.

The bride can be seen wearing a white veil, crop top, tracksuit pants and trainers. Meanwhile, the groom donned an all-black hoodie and tracksuit pants set.

‘I love when couples say screw tradition and find unique and fun ways to show their personalities on their wedding day and start new trends of their own,’ wrote @wildwoodfilms.

‘I predict sweat suits will be an up and coming trend this year and I am HERE FOR IT.’

While the videographer was a fan, those in the comments were not so sure.

‘If I’m paying over $1,000 for a gown, you better believe I’m wearing it until I die,’ wrote one follower.

‘Personally, that would be my worst nightmare! I have a Pinterest board with a few hundred pictures of potential wedding dresses and I’m not even engaged yet. I’m looking forward to be a princess soooo much,’ added another.

Yet, there were more who thought this trend should catch on.

‘I’m obsessed with this,’ commented one.

‘As a “change into after the ceremony to be comfortable” thing I get it. All for it,’ agreed a second.

As we feel weddings should be an extension of you and your personal style, we are all for dressing in what feels best to you.

If you feel most comfortable in tracksuits and jumpers, than go ahead – you’ll enjoy your day so much more.
