As I may have mentioned a time or two, I’m a sorority girl—Alpha Delta Pi, to be exact. Joining a sorority was hands down the best decision I made in college, and I stay involved with ADPi in an alumna capacity as much as possible. I met some of my dearest friends in the world through ADPi; I am proud to call these women my sisters.
I would love to sprinkle some sorority traditions into my wedding day. I haven’t decided exactly what I’ll do yet, but here are some awesome ideas I’ve found:
- Cheers! ADPi has some great cheers that would pump up my sisters during the reception (and probably scare the rest of our guests).
- Songs! I’ve heard of sorority sisters surrounding the bride and groom and serenading them with a song. Given that my chapter wasn’t particularly musically inclined, I’m not sure how this would go over.

- Garter! Believe it or not, ADPi does have a garter, presumably for weddings. It could also serve as my something blue! That is, if we were planning on doing a garter toss, which I don’t think is going to happen…but the ADPi garter is pretty cute nevertheless.

- Flowers! ADPi’s flower is the woodland violet. Wouldn’t it be sweet to leave little violet corsages at each sister’s table setting? Probably cost prohibitive, too.
- Pins! Spoiler alert: I LOVE this idea—incorporating my sisters’ pins into my bouquet. I love the idea of having something of each of my sisters with me as I walk down the aisle. This could serve as my “something borrowed” to boot.

- Pictures! You can’t get a group of ADPis together without getting at least one picture throwing “diamonds.” This is already on the “must have” list for my photographer.

So, Greek bees, did you incorporate your sorority/fraternity traditions into your wedding day? If so, how?
