3) Poems, Prayers & Promises

A romantic quote to elevate your mood or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony. This comes from "Annie's Song" by John Denver. The words would work well in the ceremony or one could use the song as a recessional. As a dance it is a Viennese Waltz:

"Come let me love you, Let me give my life to you.
Let me drown in your laughter, Let me die in your arms.
Let me lay down beside you, Let me always be with you.
Come let me love you, Come love me again!"

4) Kim's Wedding Tips!

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

TIP: If you want to be gorgeous on your wedding day start your beautification program and diet several months before hand!
*Skin: Drink lots of water and be consistent with your skin care regime. If you intend to tan start at least two months ahead to insure that you get the color you want to be and do not tan the day before your wedding so that you don't have a sunburn.
*Make up: make sure your foundation matches your skin color. - It is worth getting professional help here, especially if you are tanning. Don't wear a lot of make-up if you don't normally. Don't go for a totally natural look if you normally do wear make-up. So don't let a make-up artist convince you to go for a look which is different from who you are. You want to look like yours but like the most beautiful you possible. Try out your full make-up and up do for your hair the week before your wedding and make sure it matches the vision of what you want to look like.
*Make sure your make up is as waterproof as possible. If you don't want to deal with reapplying lipstick both covergirl and Max Factor make an all day lip stick that really does last though eating and drinking and won't come off with all kissing and hugging that goes on at weddings. (I like the shade of "perfect orchid" by Cover Girl).
* Be happy no matter what happens. Something always goes wrong at a wedding but most of the guests will never know, so go with the flow and enjoy the day as it unfolds. If you are happy and enjoying yourself you will be beautiful, and there will be too many wonderful pictures of you to choose from.

5) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

Some say the tradition of wearing a bridal veil it started with the Romans who were very fond of arranged marriages. The Bride wore the veil so that the husband-to-be couldn't see her face, and back out of the marriage if he didn't like the way she looked. The bridal veil was yellow in ancient Greece and red in ancient Rome, usually covering the bride from head to toe, and has since the earliest of times, denoted the subordination of a woman to man . The thicker the veil, the more traditional the implication of wearing it. According to tradition, it is considered bad luck for the bride to be seen by the groom before the ceremony. In the old days of marriage by purchase, the couple rarely saw each other, if at all, before the wedding. Choosing with whom you wanted to be wed is historically a fairly recent phenomenon. The lifting of the veil at the end of the ceremony symbolizes male dominance. If the bride takes the initiative in lifting it, thereby presenting herself to him, she is showing more independence.
