If you've ever been around a friend or relative planning a wedding, you'll be well accustomed to the word 'tradition' being thrown around in the early stages of choosing bridesmaids' dresses, wedding venues and best man speeches.

Whether it's the choice of an ivory-hued wedding gown, the customary father-of-the-bride speech, and tiered rose-infused 'naked' cakes, many bridal parties opt to uphold tradition, as a way of honouring the time-old practice and appease guests' expectations.

However, once in a while a bride and groom choose to go 'out with the old' to celebrate their individuality, embrace the unexpected and frivolity of marriage, and mix things up with a first dance to Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz' 'Get Low'.

So, you can imagine our delight when we saw a video of 28-year-old Patrick Casey acting as a flower girl, or rather 'flower man', at his cousins' recent wedding.

According to the Huffington Post, the 28-year-old asked his cousin Andria Farthing if he could serve as the alternative flower girl at her Wisconsin wedding, early on in her engagement.

'I was lobbying to be their 'flower man' even before they were engaged,' he told the publication.

'A little later, after their engagement, they honoured me by bestowing me with the duty I so craved,' he added.

As children, Casey and Farthing reportedly both respectively served as ring bearer and a flower girl together at a wedding, so Casey's most recent role served the perfect reminder of how far they've both come.

Casey revealed: 'I used the same flower basket that she used when we were in that wedding together as children.

'A good marriage includes a lot of laughing, so what's wrong with a bit of fun at your wedding with someone you both love and who loves you both?' he added.

We couldn't have said it better ourselves, Patrick.
