3) Poems, Prayers & Promises

A romantic quote to elevate your mood or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove. Oh no! It is an ever fixd mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken. It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth's unknown although his height be taken. Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle's compass come. Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

William Shakespeare Sonnet 116

4) Kim & Deb's Wedding Tips!

We recently tied those knots and have tips, tricks and to be avoided stories to share:

TIP: Assign a trustworthy female relative to bring the bridal emergency kit if you don't have a wedding coordinator. Good things to include are: aspirin, antihistamine, Band-Aids, tissue, nail file, nail polish( clear for pantyhose runs and the bride's color in case of chips), hair pins, hairspray, eye drops, safety pins, straws(so the bride doesn't mess up her lipstick), chalk (to cover up smudges on your white gown), make-up for touch ups, extra pantyhose and breath mints.

5) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

The betrothal or engagement ring has for centuries symbolized the promise of a future together, sealed with the giving and accepting of a ring. In the early days of "Marriage by Purchase", the betrothal ring served two purposes, a partial payment for the bride and as well a symbol of the groom's good intentions. Rings featuring gem stones were popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. Often, the first letter of the stones within the setting spelled out the name of the giver or a word, such as "dearest" (diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, epidote, sapphire, turquoise). There was also a ring known as the "Gimmal Ring". This three part ring had two clasped hands on it. During the engagement, one part of the ring was worn by the bride, one part by the groom and the third by a witness. It was reunited as the bride's wedding ring, on the day of their marriage. The tradition of using diamonds in engagement rings, the first choice among brides today, can be traced to Medieval Italy (around 1477), where because of its beauty and its hardness, was chosen to stand for enduring love.
