3) Poems, Prayers & Promises
A romantic quote to elevate your mood
or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony.
"I knew that I had been touched by love the first time I saw you,
and I felt your warmth, and I heard your laughter.
"I knew that I had been touched by love when I was hurting from something
that happened, and you came along and made the hurt go away.
"I knew that I had been touched by love when I quit making plans with my
friends, and started dreaming dreams with you.
"I knew that I had been touched by love when suddenly I stopped thinking
in terms of "me", and started thinking in terms of "we".
"I knew that I had been touched by love when suddenly I couldn't make
any decisions by myself anymore, and I had the strong desire to share
everything with you.
"I knew that I had been touched by love the first time we spent alone
together, and I knew I wanted to stay with you forever because
I had never felt this touched by love."
Kim's Wedding Tips!
We recently tied those knots and have
tips, tricks and to be avoided stories to share:
selecting your veil...
TIP #1: Never buy the veil before the dress. You may have dreamed of
exactly the veil you wanted but you MUST try it on with the dress you
will wear down the aisle. Because we have so many options for buying
via the Internet and various bridal shops, some brides do not even see
the dress and veil together in advance! There are approximately 16 different
shades of white (diamond, ivory, blue, etc.), I shall leave the math
to you on the odds of you selecting the exact same shade without the
two together. Take the time to send swatches if ordering by mail or
via the Internet. In my case the veil was dyed to match the shade of
my grandmother's wedding dress which I can assure you was not offered
TIP #2: Have the veil in hand when you select your hairstyle. Do not
waste time at the hairdresser's looking for pictures that "sort
of look like your veil". It goes without saying that you NEED to
have it with you for the trial run. You will be looking at these pictures
for the rest of your life and you want your hair to be perfect. Don't
be afraid to change the style that you selected, that is what the trial
updo is for!
TIP #3: Discuss whether or not you want to take off your veil during
the reception and exactly how to do so. At the last wedding I was at,
the bride had a lovely chignon in the back decorated with roses nobody
saw. This was because the veil was essentially unremovable. She looked
lovely she was bothered that the rose decorations didn't show.
Even if you intend to do the "bear hug sway" on the dance
floor you must deal with
your veil. I allowed the women at the bridal shop to convince me that
the ring pictured above and at left would hold my dress and veil up
during the dance. While entirely appropriate for the Victorian style
dress I wore, it was utterly useless. Notice the veil pooling about
my feet! Moments later the rest of my dress followed. At one point during
our waltz the guests feared that my tiara would be ripped off my head
as my husband stepped on the veil while turning (luckily my veil was
really long!) If I had it to do over I would have held or bustled my
dress and would have removed the longer detachable section of the veil
for the first dance. Do not let this happen to you!
5) A Wedding Tradition
THE "DOWRY" (or why the father of the
As civilized nations developed, it became very important, especially
to Royal, noble and other prominent families/ clans to form political,
military, and economic ties. Arranged marriages became a preferred method
of cementing ties between families, middle class family businesses,
and countries. A man's daughters, who were considered to be his property
in those days, provided a means of securing these needed alliances.
Thus dowries were introduced as a means attracting and securing the
most beneficial family alliances possible. While the alliances formed
by love make for a happier marriage, the father of the bride is still
traditionally expected to foot the majority of the bill for the wedding
since he no longer has to pay the groom to marry his daughter.
