2) A Different Celebrity
Wedding Photo from Past or Present!
Some celebrities didn't have the luxury
of a big wedding on their way up the ladder. So they decided to renew
their vows as many more people are choosing to do. Today's celebrities
pledging their love for a second time are Rod Stewart & Rachel Hunter
and Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne.
3) Poems, Prayers & Promises
A romantic quote to elevate your mood
or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony.
"True love is a sacred flame
That burns eternally,
And none can dim its special glow
Or change its destiny.
True love speaks in tender tones
And hears with gentle ear,
True love gives with open heart
And true love conquers fear.
True love makes no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds,
And true love holds with gentle hands
The hearts that it entwines."
Helen Steiner Rice
Kim's Wedding Tips!
We recently tied those knots and have
tips, tricks and to be avoided stories to share:
To Know Each Other ...
1) Some faiths require a learning period for brides and grooms prior
to the wedding. These are worth doing as you will learn quite a bit
about each other's underlying expectations. Your priest, rabbi, pastor
or swami will have no compunction about bringing up questions that couples
in love tend to avoid. This is particularly important if you are marrying
outside your own faith. Both should attend the other's services if only
to gain understanding and facilitate relationships with your future
2) It is a good idea to start communicating and problem solving together
before the wedding. We all have our flaws and ideally we pick partners
who compliment us in some of the areas we lack. With a little respect
and an open mind you can begin to deal with sticky issues like taxes,
credit card debt, balancing the checkbook, or even the storage of a
lot of exercise equipment. In my case, His tax refund was in his hands
by march and mine was chronically late. He had credit card debt and
I had none. He did the taxes and I watched the credit card expenditures.
Don't expect your partner to change. Learn how to work together so that
you don't stress out about your differences.
3) Try to find an activity that you both are interested in and spend
an hour or more every week doing it together. A new hobby such as working
out, golf, dancing or gardening can be a great way to spend some quality
DANCING AS ONE:
If you decide to take dance lessons it is extremely important to be
supportive of one another. There is a running joke among dance instructors
that we are cleverly disguised therapists. While you do need to learn
steps, it is the lead and follow that will make you "move as one".
Men and women have utterly different reasons
for learning how to dance. We want to be beautiful and have fun being
led and twirled around the floor. Men, on the other hand, don't want
to "look stupid" and trust me, many men would prefer NEVER dancing to
taking the risk of looking foolish. So my advise to men leading is "It
is better to be decisive than to be right when moving around the dance
floor. If you are hesitant the woman will mess up anyway. If you are
decisive she knows where you want her to be and might even think she
made the mistake!"
My advise to women is for God's sake "let
the men lead"! Often women will try to help the man out by moving
him around the floor. Men lead poorly when they are insecure, and being
in love with you, they will let you lead. You will never look good leading
yourself and your man will not have fun being led. You will be frustrated
and he will stop dancing with you once you are married. Take a dance
class together but never say "you're doing that wrong". The words "you're
doing great honey!" will pay much bigger dividends.
5) A Wedding Tradition
"WHAT IS THE WEDDING HANDKERCHIEF?"
The wedding handkerchief is an old and charming tradition which you
can start with your own wedding. In olden times a beautifully embroidered
or lacey handkerchief was carried by the bride and often kept to be
passed down from mother to daughter from one generation to the next
(and can easily fill in for something old or borrowed). Early farmers
believed that the bride's wedding day tears were lucky and would bring
rain for their crops. Later, it was said that if the bride cried on
her wedding day, she'd never shed another tear in the rest of her marriage.
In modern times we get to pick our husbands, so we carry a handkerchief
to dry the tears of happiness and joy at having found our life's partner.
