There are many traditions that can be followed at weddings – from the bride wearing white, to throwing the bouquet.
But not all of them have to be adhered to and it’s simple to twist and tweak a tradition to meet your own personal style.
This is what one woman did on her big day when it came to organising the father-daughter dance with her dad.
Chrissy Mitchell, from Joliet, Illinois, knew when she got engaged to her partner Kevin, that she wanted to incorporate roller skates into her big day – and she came up with a unique way to do so.
The 32-year-old newlywed took to the dancefloor at her wedding reception on wheels, alongside her dad Tim Lesak, 51 to dance to the song Don’t Stop the Rock by Freestyle.
And it’s fair to say her guests weren’t expecting the quirky performance at all.
Speaking to Mail Online, Chrissy said: "I knew when my husband proposed to me that I wanted to be on skates on my wedding day.
"It is something my dad and I have always done together.
"I’ve been skating since I was 14 and he has been skating since before he could walk."
She added: "He taught me all the footwork I know and how to dance to the beat of the music."
The bride claims she and her father didn’t practice their dance beforehand, but simply "winged the entire thing".
However as the pair are so used to skating together, the dance just came naturally to them.
Despite her guests’ initial surprise at the dance, the bride is confident that "everyone love it".
And in a video recorded on the big day, various cheers can be heard from onlookers.
Father-of-three Tim described the performance as "wonderful" and said he would cherish the special moment he had with his daughter for the rest of his life.
