A romantic quote to elevate your mood

Kim's Wedding Tips!
We recently tied those knots and have
tips, tricks and to be avoided stories to share:
Kim's Tip: I got married later in life (thirty something...)
and my husband had been married before. We already had two sets of formal
dishes and more than one of the more traditional wedding gifts (I still
haven't used the blender I had before I met him). We decided to get
a really fabulous set of everyday dishes by registering at an art gallery!
I collect masks and sculpture as well, so this left the guests with
a selection starting at $8 dollars for a hand thrown cup all the way
up to $300 for the Raku torsos that the owner of the gallery ended up
giving me because he made so much money from sales to my family and
friends. Everyone felt that they were giving something personal and
special because everything was hand made. If you do decide to go with
an unconventional registry such as I did make sure you allow a great
deal of flexibility in selection, pricing and also make sure that the
owner of the gallery knows your taste. In my case Peter knew
my taste so well that he was suggesting all the cool stuff I had been
lusting after for months. This made decorating our new home together
a lot of fun and I have the most beautiful everyday dishes I have ever
seen and still get compliments on them now, almost 6 years later.
PRACTICING AT HOME
Despite your best intentions to practice at home, the likelihood is
that your hectic wedding planning schedule will take up most of your
free time. Rest assured, as long as you consistently attend classes
you will make progress toward your goals. For the most part we only
recommend practicing for 5 minutes at a time. Longer than that, it becomes
a chore, something you feel obligated to do rather than an activity
you enjoy. Fun is the name of the game with dancing. Additionally, practicing
good "technique" will give you a polished and confident look, require
only a couple of minutes a day and doesn't require a partner. Such exercises
include walking around with proper posture, practicing your basic footwork
and walking - be sure not to look at your feet!. After the wedding,when
you have time to relax in your new home you may enjoy practicing at
home for the sheer romance of it! So light some candles, put on slow
music that you love and push the coffee table aside to make room. Dancing
and Romancing shouldn't stop after the honeymoon!
5) A Wedding Tradition
WHERE DOES THE TERM "WEDDING" COME FROM?
Although some brides in the olden days were kidnapped, marriage by purchase
was the preferred method of obtaining a wife. The "bride price" could
be land, social status, political alliances, or cold hard cash. The
Anglo-Saxon word "wed" had a double meaning, one that the groom vowed
to marry the woman, and secondly it referred to the bride price (money
or barter) to be paid by the groom to the bride's father. The root of
the word "wedding" literally means to wager or gamble!
