A romantic quote to elevate your mood or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony.
I spread out the days before me - the days we have spent together - some bright as frost stars, some glowing with an opalescent magic, some cool as water-tumbled pebbles, some flashing with fire. What would they have been without you? Dates crossed off on a calendar.

One way to make your bride's maids happy is to give them a chance to look good in their dress and to wear that dress again. You can do this on line more easily than you would think possible. There are many online boutiques which will allow out of town bride's maids to see and order their dress on line. This also saves the bride the hassle of getting sizes, arguing about the style of the dress and dealing with the money. Our featured vendor carries the Watters & Watters Collections which are lovely. You can pick a color and fabric and allow them to pick the dress that they feel would suit them the best.
THE BRIDAL GOWN
The standard, White dress for weddings,
really started in Victorian times thanks to Queen Victoria. Before that
the bride usually wore her favorite color and used it as her best dress
after the wedding. It was also a display of wealth to have a dress you
only wear once. People did not have as many changes of clothes as we
do now. Dresses had high collars, but party dresses could show a huge
amount of chest. It became fashionable to copy Queen Victoria's wedding.
This is still done today. The Victorian bride favored a long veil down
her back with a small crown of flowers (Queen Victoria wore orange blossoms.)
Battenburg lace became very popular at this time. Before Queen Victoria,
Royals always wed in Silver and commoners in blue. Brides of ancient
Israel wore blue ribbons on the border of their wedding cloths to denote,
love, modesty and fidelity. These are ideals still associated today
with that color. Blue is also associated with the purity of the Virgin
Mary and is the most popular of all colors. Many were married gowned
in it. The something blue is a throwback
to this ancient tradition honoring the purity of the bride. Faced with
such an enduring biblical and social tradition it is ironic that Queen
Victoria's radical departure from tradition has become the norm. She
also did a mean Waltz, by all accounts, which was far more shocking!
