A Different Celebrity Wedding Photo from Past or Present!
We all like to see the wedding
couple kissing. The celebrities below are Shaquille O'Neal & Shaunie
Nelson and Russell Crowe & Danielle Spencer.
A Wedding Tradition Explained!
The European tradition goes that
every time the Bride and Groom hear wedding guests tapping audibly on
their champagne glasses with their flatware, they are supposed to kiss.
This is a popular tradition in many countries, from America to England,
Norway to Portugal.
Kim's Wedding Tips!
We recently tied those knots and
have tips, tricks and trials to share:
Kissing on Command...
Kim's Tip: The clinking for kissing
tradition usually happens automatically. It is so common that it would
be highly unlikely for it not to occur. Substituting how the guests
do this can be fun. As our favors we had bells with ribbons passed out
on silver platters as the guests waited for the ceremony to start. They
went crazy with the bells during the first kiss and we heard tinkling
off and on throughout the night and even as we drove away!
Another wedding I attended had another more trendy alternative of having
the guests at each table have to sing part of a song containing the
word "love" in order to get the couple to kiss . This was
a riot. Selections from "Love Me Tender", "Stop In The
Name Of Love" and the "Barney Song" were particularly
funny. If you choose to do this make sure to have the DJ make the announcement
early in the reception and have the Videographer be ready to catch some
fun shots of your guests hamming it up!
"The Proper hold for the Groom!"
GROOMS: When dancing with a woman for the formal ballroom dances, the
gentlemen provide the lion's share of the
lead from their right arm and how they hold it. Your right hand should
under the lady's scapula with the edge of your fingers on her spine.
For those gentlemen not familiar enough with the scapula, put your hand
over the bra strap! Your arm should be bent (deltoid flexed). You want
to have the lady a comfortable distance from you. This distance never
changes. That right arm keeps the woman where you want her. Since you
have to drive, you should not have any slack or give in your right arm.
All too often gentlemen straighten out their arms and have no control
over where women go.
BRIDES: The Lady helps maintain the consistent distance between herself
and her partner in part by keeping her elbows slightly down and in front
of her. The second either of your elbows pass behind your back, all
frame is lost and your feet are in the gravest of danger.
Look at the picture of our students Rebecca and Arron. He felt very
confident leading Rebecca around because they both had their arms in
the correct position.
Our teachers run events and perform locally
on a regular basis.
