2) A Different Celebrity Wedding Photo from Past or Present!

This issue we are looking at a few of the Celebrity brides "did it their way" and got married with out all the pomp and circumstance of the white wedding dress. We have Marilyn Monroe leaving the ceremony with Joe Dimaggio, Charles Bronson cutting the cake with new wife Kim Weeks and Diane Von Furstenberg with new hubby Barry Diller.


3) Poems, Prayers & Promises

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

"Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be"

Robert Browning

4) Kim's Wedding Tips!

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

The Get Away Kit ...

We always pack for the Honeymoon but consider having a Get Away Bag. You won't have to go searching for the things you'll need right away. It should include things like:
Your Wedding Night Finery - You don't want to have to unpack your suitcase.
A soft sexy Dress and Shoes to put on if you go out after the reception or the next morning. Find something you think you look great in to remind him how glad he is to be your husband!
Make Up
Your camera,
A Snack for you and your husband (many caterers will have little get away "picnic" menus that they can have ready for your departure from the site),
Your Bathing Suit and suntan lotion,
Honeymoon tickets, passports etc.

4A)Wedding Dance Tip
Bridal shoes are notoriously uncomfortable. One of the great injustices of fate is that the more beautiful, desirable and expensive a pair of shoes, the more likely they are to hurt our feet. Years of dancing has taught me a few tricks.

1) If your shoes are too slick, scuff the bottoms on some cement.
2) If they bind you on the heel, put a piece of Dr. Scholl's "moles skin" on your achilles heel.
3) If they are too loose in the heel, you can use "moles skin" lower on the heel for a better fit.
4) If you are intent on wearing a pair of shoes like Mules which come too easily off your feet, you can make a skin or white colored elastic band to slip over your shoe and foot between the ball and heel to keep the shoe on (sort of like a hair scrungy but very thin).
5) If you are going to be anywhere where you risk being on your feet for more than 4 hours, have a second pair of shoes with a different size heel, either higher or lower.
6) If there is room in your shoes for gel inserts, wear them.
7) If your feet are killing you at the end of the night, rinse them alternately with cool water then warm water, repeat, and end with a final cool rinse. This procedure can take you from excruciating to bearable in 3 minutes.

5) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

The term to "Tie The Knot" goes back as far as the time of the Roman Empire. The Bride would wear an elaborate girdle tied in many little knots which the groom had the "duty" of untying.
