3) Poems, Prayers & Promises

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

"Perfect love is rare indeed -
for to be a lover will require that you continually have

the subtlety of the very wise,

the flexibility of the child,

the sensitivity of the artist,

the understanding of the philosopher,

the acceptance of the saint,

the tolerance of the scholar

and the fortitude of the certain."

Leo Buscaglia

4) Kim's Wedding Tips!

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

About The Shower ...

Tip: If you are planning the shower yourself, having a theme can be a lot of fun. One thing that I like is the pampering / beautification motif. You can often times get group rates at salons for manicures or pedicures for you and the girls. If your list of attendees is too large you can often get "Buckets of Beauty" kits at places like Costco or in many malls. These kits usually come with everything you need for 6 women! Add music, candles, some food and maybe a movie and you are set for a wonderful night with your friends. Be sure that you tell everyone what the theme is so that they dress appropriately and are prepared for whatever activity you have planned.

4A)Wedding Dance Tip
"Don't bolster your confidence too much!"
People dance best when sober. Often times people will have a drink or too when they are nervous. One drink won't make any difference. However, at your wedding there will be waiters continuously filling up your glass with champagne. Between the nerves, the waiters and the festive atmosphere it is possible to get a little more tipsy than you meant to. Sip slowly and enjoy the party. The whole day will go by so fast and you don't want it to be a complete blur. So even if you are nervous about dancing in front of a bunch of your nearest and dearest, drink in each others eyes rather than the liquid courage.

5) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

The Bridal Shower

Some say the tradition of the bridal shower came about to support a bride whose father was against the marriage and therefore wouldn't give her a dowry. To soften the blow, the Bride's female friends and family would give her gifts she would need in marriage. In more modern times, the Bridal Shower exists to strengthen friendships between the bride and her friends who give her moral support and help her prepare for her marriage. The idea to give fun gifts is fairly new; probably starting with the Victorians as so many of our wedding traditions do. In the 1890’s, at one shower, the bride’s friend put a number of small gifts inside a parasol and opened it over the bride’s head so that the presents would "shower" over her. When word of this hit the fashion pages, people were so taken with the idea that they decided to do the same at their showers.
