3) Poems, Prayers & Promises

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

"Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours
For one lone soul, another lonely soul-
Each chasing each through all the weary hours,
And meeting strangely at one sudden goal;
Then blend they-like green leaves with golden flowers,
Into one beautiful and perfect whole-
And life's long night is ended, and the way
Lies open onward to eternal day.

Sir Edwin Arnold


4) Kim's Wedding Tips!

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

Enjoying Your Reception...

Kim's Tip: Way too many brides are overly concerned with the perfection of how their wedding comes off.Am I saying that you shouldn't want it to be perfect? Of course not. The point is that most of you have been planning this gorgeous wedding for over a year, have agonized over colors, flowers, seating charts and who knows what else. The day will come off beautifully, IN SPITE OF THINGS THAT MAY GO WRONG. Often times there are little glitches that can cause a bride to go bridezilla. If something of this ilk happens, let it go and smile. Unless the Cake or the Ice Sculpture crashes to the floor, nobody will notice unless the Bride and Groom freak out about it. Your planning will carry the rest of the day wonderfully well. Your wedding day is way too short to waste any time being unhappy. So enjoy yourself and view all glitches as either a good story to tell your children or as a chance to get money back after the reception!

4A)Wedding Dance Tip
"Dance Before You Eat!"
Very few performers will eat before a performance. It is a proven fact that immediately after you eat, blood rushes from your head and other extremities to your stomach to aid in digestion. This tends to contribute to a feeling of being sluggish or tired. Additionally, if you haven't taken dance lessons and are feeling nervous about people watching you, this may tend to make you feel a little queasy as well. If you can work it out, dance before you eat.

5) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

Why Do We Give Wedding Favors?

Giving your wedding guests party favors at the reception dates back to a 16th century custom among the nobility in France. As the tradition was usually reserved just for royalty, the gifts were often very costly such as precious stones, gold, porcelain, etc. People have always wanted to emulate the rich and powerful, so the practice of giving favors trickled down the social ladder and now we all give little gifts to those who come to share our special day with us. Of course not everyone can afford gifts of royal caliber, so as the tradition became common among all of levels of society, gifts such as glass, confections, etc. were substituted.
