1) A Different Celebrity Wedding Photo from Past or Present!

This issue's Golden haired celebrity newlyweds smiling for the camera and each other are tennis great Bjorn Borg with Patricia Ostfeldt, and Brad Pitt with new wife Jennifer Aniston.


2) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

"Why Do The Church Bells Ring At Weddings?"

It is traditional to have the church bells ring as the Bride and Groom emerge from the church after the ceremony. The sound of the bells is supposed to drive away evil spirits and thereby ensure the couple's good fortune.
A more modern German take on this tradition has the Newlywed couple create a car processional, leading their guests to the reception site, honking their horns the whole way.

3) Kim's Wedding Tips!

Kim Bosch van Drakenstein, Owner/Founder of First Dance Impressions & Social Dance Instructor
People love making noise. Why not give them something to make noise with? Bells or fun noise maker favors can be bought inexpensively and give the guests something to do. Since I was going to be married outdoors instead of an indoor church wedding, I had bell favors passed out before the actual wedding ceremony. The guests rang them when we kissed, when we went out, when we danced and pretty much all through out the night. It lent a very festive atmosphere to the whole event.


4) Kim's Wedding Dance Tip "Give Me A Kiss To Build A Dream On!"

Our students Tim and Rebecca's 1st dance. To quote Louis Armstrong: "Give Me A Kiss To Build A Dream On" - and a dance as well! I am a big believer in doing things to take away the stress of being watched publicly. When you first come out look lovingly into each other's eye's and give your spouse a little kiss to relax both of you before assuming the proper dance hold or "frame". The end of the dance is another great moment for stealing a smooch. I do not however recommend kissing in the middle if you plan any sort of formal dance. Women tend to melt into the arms of their beloved when they get kissed. If you are dancing a formal ballroom dance such as Fox Trot, Waltz or Rumba, this will mean that you let your frame go and will get you stepped on for sure!

Our teachers run events and perform locally on a regular basis.

7) Poems, Prayers & Promises

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


"She asked me why wedding rings are made of gold
I ventured this to instruct her
Why, madam, Love and Lightning are the same
On earth they glance, from Heaven they came
Love is the Soul's Electric Flame
And gold its best conductor."

Robert Burn
