2) A Different Celebrity
Wedding Photo from Past or Present!
Most of us dream of walking down the
aisle in a long flowing, all white dress. The Brides marrying these
celebrities decided to put a serious twist on their white gowns. They
are Rita Wilson hand in hand with new hubby Tom Hanks, and Trudi Styler
posing for her formal portrait with husband Sting.
3) Poems, Prayers & Promises
A romantic quote to elevate your mood
or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony.
"I love you not only for what you are,
but for what I am when I am with you.
I love you not only for what you have made of yourself,
but for what you are making of me.
I love you for the part of me that your bring out.
I love your for putting your hand into my heaped-up heart and passing
over all the foolish and frivolous and weak things that you can't help
dimly seeing there,
and for drawing out into the light all of the beautiful radiant belongings
that no one else had looked quite far enough to find."
Kim's Wedding Tips!
We recently tied those knots and have
tips, tricks and to be avoided stories to share:
With The Heat ...
As the bride you will probably be wearing
one of the hottest and heaviest dresses of your life. You want however to look
as fresh as possible. Here are a couple of suggestions.
1) Make sure that your deodorant is also an antiperspirant. In addition
to keeping you from having unsightly underarm stains during the wedding
and reception, these sweat stains often significantly discolor dress
when the cleaners do not take care of it (be sure to ask them when prepping
for the dress for storage).
2) Baby Powder - few of us use it regularly nowadays but believe me
that it will help you feel cooler when you are under 10 to 40 pounds
of lace and crinoline. Powder yourself like a donut!
3) Do not put on your dress long before the ceremony unless there is
a good reason to do so. The less time you are in it before the wedding,
the fresher you will feel!
4) Stay indoors in the air conditioning as long as possible before going
outside if you are having an outdoor wedding.
"THE DANCE REHERSAL"
We find that a lot of couples are nervous about the first dance. I find
the best way to get over the jitters is to go through all your dance
moves once, in your wedding finery. Many couples these days are choosing
to have their formal pictures done before the wedding so as to be able
to maximize their time at the reception. Doing the photos before allows
you the time to take a moment to dance together. The photographers go
nuts over the dip in particular. If you plan a more traditional approach
where you will not be seeing each other before the nuptials, then immediately
after the ceremony will serve as the best time. Normally they hide the
bride and groom immediately after the wedding to encourage the guests
to leave the church and go to the reception. Since they have you off
in a vestibule somewhere anyway, this presents a perfect opportunity
to do a minute of dancing to prep for the First Dance.
5) A Wedding Tradition
Do So Many People Get Married On Saturday?
During the early days of Christianity,
Sunday was the preferred day to get married because it was not a work
day. In the 17th century, the Puritan revolution in England changed
all that because the Puritans thought it improper to hold festivities
on the Sabbath. As a direct consequence, in both England and the USA,
Saturday is now the most popular day for weddings.
