2) A Different Celebrity
Wedding Photo from Past or Present!
Ever in search of interesting wedding
photos, I found these, of two women who really wanted to make a statement
on their wedding day. Wearing a hat instead of a veil is a great option
which allows you to express your own personal style. I wanted to but
didn't have the guts, even though I had found the perfect hat. The Gutsy
hat wearing celebrities below are Paula Murad with husband James Coburn
and Emma Thompson with her husband Kenneth Brannaugh.
3) Poems, Prayers & Promises
A romantic quote to elevate your mood
or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony.
"Love is very
patient and kind, never jealous or envious,
never boastful or proud, never haughty or selfish or rude.
Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable or touchy.
It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do
It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever truth wins out.
If you love someone you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost.
You will always believe in him, Always expect the best of him and always
stand your ground in defending him.
All the special gifts and powers from God will someday come to an end,
but love goes on forever. "
Living Bible, I Corinthians 13:4-8
4) Kim's Wedding
When selecting bridesmaids several factors
are important to remember.
TIP #1: Try to select about the women who have been there for you in
the past and who you believe will continue to be important to you for
the rest of your life. Being a bridesmaid can be stressful, especially
for the maid of honor and you wantlifelong friends who will have a sincere
desire to make your day perfect.
TIP #2: Less is MORE really! You will have a hard time pleasing even
three attendants (I did!) with your selection of style and color as
you craft your perfect wedding day picture. Some of the brides I have
taught, have told me horror stories of trying to get 8 different women
of various ages and sizes to all wear the same outfit. The whole bridesmaids'
dress thing can really put a damper on your happiness as you plan. Do
you really want to deal with tears, resentment and threats of not being
in the wedding?
TIP #3: Lastly, being a bridesmaid, while an honor, also costs a fair
chunk of change. The hair, make-up, shoes and dress can easily add upwards
of more than $300, which good friendsare often willing to put out. Put
yourself in their place before you ask. Can they afford it? Think before
you ask a good friend who is broke to lay out that kind of cash. She
is then put in the embarrassing and unenviable position of insulting
you by saying no or sucking up a bill she may not be comfortable with.
My particular solution to this was to offer to pay for the dress of
one of my bridesmaids. It was kept a secret between the two of us and
she was then able to join me for my walk down the aisle.
If you have selected shoes which will not easily stay
on your feet such as mules, you will have a problem dancing with them
on. You can solve this problem one of two ways. 1) Have a second pair
of shoes (which is a good idea in anycase as your feet will hurt in
new shoes) which one of your bridesmaids brings and keep track of, or
2) Get or make two thin scrungies (you know, those covered elastics
for your hair) in satin which matches your shoes. These are really easy
to make. You can slip them right over your shoes, they will look like
a strap and keep your shoes on your feet. No one will notice as most
wedding dresses cover the feet entirely. Many ballroom dancers have
used this trick for years, though we tend to go for nude colored elastic.
5) A Wedding Tradition
This term has many origins from different cultures. In Anglo-Saxon times,
the groom had the help of "bridesmen" (as explained last issue) to help
him capture and/or escort his bride his bride to the alter. The women
who accompanied and assisted the bride were called "bridesmaids". In
other cultures the bridesmaids were considered to be very important
to the welfare of the Bride! The Ancient Egyptians thought that when
a couple got married evil spirits would come to ruin the good mood and
atmosphere of the wedding celebration. The main function of having bridesmaids
was to confuse the evil spirits by dressing them as extravagantly as
the bride. In some parts of the world they would even dress identically.
If the spirits could no longer distinguish whom to pick on, they would
be thwarted! If you eliminate bridesmaids, then who would confuse the
