4) Kim's Wedding Tips!

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

The Feeding Of The Cake ...

Discuss the smashing of the cake onto the face before the big day. Couples are often tempted to go for the laugh and smash away but payback is ...Some newly married spouses can get very upset be being smashed if they are not expecting it. Neither of you wants a nasty surprise on your wedding day. While some men will be a little embarrassed by being smashed, you as the bride have a serious make-up and hair up-do going on. If you get smashed, you will not only have to fix your make-up but often will risk getting it on your hair and gown. The groom is almost always in a black tux, which I promise you will clean up and hide the mess a lot better than a white gown will. If you know that you are fun loving, smasher types, agree to try to not get it all over yourselves as much as possible.

4A)Wedding Dance Tip
More often than not the Groom will dip the Bride. If you take dance lessons, your instructor will show you how to do this safely and with the best positioning so that it is comfortable, romantic and almost always one of your best wedding photos. All too often however, the Groom will dip the Bride using force to unbalance her. This leads to the many photos of Brides with legs in the air, a look of terror on their faces and in the worst cases, of nearly being dropped by their beloved in front of the crowd. Practice dipping before the actual day of your wedding. Here are a few suggestions:

1) The groom should get a good hold on you before he starts dipping, THIS IS THE SIGNAL that he is about to dip you.

2) Let him dip you!!! Hold on to his arm or back for security. Fighting the dip is an exercise in futility unless you are as strong as the man you are marrying. He will simply use more force and be less balanced while trying to hold you up.

3)The dip need not be very deep or low to be visually effective. A balanced dip where you are both comfortable and smiling at the crowd or at each other is far preferable to one where you are looking awkward and fearful because you may end up on the floor.

5) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

Feeding each other cake comes from the tradition, still popular in jewish weddings today of having the bride and groom going off and eating together before joining the rest of the guests at the reception. Feeding each other is actually quite symbolic of the giving and nurturing symbiosis that will occur in your future lives together. Often times couples will feed each other during the meal as well and/ or eat from the same plate.
