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 was just a mirage of the mind,
it's an illusion, it's fake, impossible to find.
But the day I met you, I began to see,
that love is real, and exists in me."
Kim's Wedding Tips!
a Wedding / Reception Site ...
1)Think creatively about your wedding and reception site. There are
many interesting places to tie the knot. Some museums, arboretums, national
parks can make unusual and memorable sites. Also, remember the less
people you have at your wedding the more places you will have available
2) Be flexible with your wedding date until you have selected your site.
Most of the more popular wedding sites are booked a year in advance.
If you allow for several weekends you will have a much better chance
of getting the site you want.
3) Consider the possibility of a Friday or Sunday wedding. Not only
are they more likely to be available than the coveted Saturday slot.
Also many places will have two weddings on Saturday so you are more
likely to be rushed out. Sometimes it even costs you less to have your
reception on that day.
4)Find out what is included and if there is a list of vendors that you
must use. Some sites have lists of vendors that you must use if you
wish to use their site. Generally these vendors will work well at that
site but may limit you in your search for the best price, quality and
individuality. In my case I had the opposite problem of vendors who
had blackballed my site.
THE DANCE FLOOR FOR THE FIRST AND ALL DANCES:
If you want to dance you should talk about the dance floor. Some sites
have wooden floors which are lovely for dancing but will not tend to
prioritize dancing very highly. Setting aside a 10 x 10 foot square
is common. Whether or not you are a ballroom dancer this is often insufficient
if your family and friends like to dance. If the reception site is carpeted
often they will have a portable floor which you can rent - put that
into your budget early as it is not cheap.
5) A Wedding Tradition
THE "WEDDING RING"
Rings were used as currency in the Middle East prior to the advent of
coinage and were an outward sign of a person's wealth. In the event
of the marriage not turning out okay a woman might have been forced
to leave with nothing but the jewelry she wore. This lends a whole new
dimension to the saying "Diamonds are a girl's best friend!" In ancient
times the wedding ring was thought to protect the bride from "evil spirits".
Ancient Roman wedding rings were originally made of iron, but later
a gold band came to symbolize everlasting love and commitment in marriage.
Roman wedding rings were carved with two clasped hands. Very early rings
had a carved key through which a woman was thought to be able to open
her husband's heart.
