Many people are predisposed to thinking that a destination wedding is the cheaper way to go . . . in actuality, a destination wedding can be much more expensive. Depending on how far you plan on traveling, you’ll need to figure in the cost of plane tickets and hotel rooms for yourself and the rest of your wedding guests. Also, by planning the wedding overseas or across country, you can easily end up spending much more on elements such as the cake and catering because you won’t have the ability to shop around.
One of the best ways to kick off the ceremony is with a memorable entrance and exit. There’s nothing more exciting than pulling up to the wedding in a Rolls Royce convertible.

In whatever way you decide to commemorate the moment – whether by helicopter or wagon – just make sure that you do it in classic bridal style.

Marriage counselors and experts would always advice married couples to treat each other with equal and due respect. That, they say is the key to improved marriage.
But still, there are many other factors that dictate the success and smooth flow of a married relationship.
Here are several tips and guidelines that would help you improve your marriage and make it last.
These days it seems, even the wife is getting herself into a little trouble when it comes to staying faithful. This article does not concern women who don’t care about right or wrong, and have become rebellious to their husbands. Any woman can be unfaithful to her husband, that’s the easy part; the hard part is being unfaithful to her beliefs.
The main reason a wife would be unfaithful is non-committal to her marriage. Without this important aspect covering the marriage, she will undoubtedly fall for the misinformation of the outside world, especially if her marriage is not so great to begin with. The second reason is she is not committed to God, which is really the first reason, because I feel that without full belief and acceptance of Christ Jesus who has given us all of who He is, a woman will not be able to devote herself to her purpose in life.
It is sad and scary how society has deemed adultery a natural part of the American culture. This is why God specifically says for believers to separate from the ungodliness of the world. I truly believe that unfaithfulness in marriage stems from not keeping in tune with our spiritual side. We have to study the word and we have to bring the word into our heart and mind on a daily basis for reflection and spiritual growth. This article is for those husbands who are repentant and want to save their marriage.
Do you want to marry a millionaire? If you could find someone with all the qualties you are looking for in a mate, would you care if they were rich?

Marriage is one the the biggest challenges a person will ever face in life. Everyone wants a soul mate, and many times relationships will start out that way. Over time, couples drift from being soul mates into being other kind of mates. Let's take a look at each of these kind of mates.
4 Kinds of "Marriage Mates"

Marriage License. Hmm! Sounds so formal doesn't it, like driving license, or fishing license and the like. Still, the point is that a marriage license is a formal document, and in order to have a 'right' to marry, we must meet certain conditions, mainly that we are free to marry, of legal age, and a number of other deciding factors that confirm the request is both legit and genuine.
The idea of getting married is favorable. However, marriage far exceeds the work that it takes to plan a fairytale wedding. A major mistake that men and women make is confusing the wedding with the marriage. Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman who have vowed to spend the rest of their lives with each other. According to those joined in Holy Matrimony, a marriage is supposed to last until “death do you part”. A wedding ceremony, on the other hand, is an event that commemorates the marriage between a husband and a wife. It can lasts anywhere from 15 minutes to a few hours. Ironically, some people spend more time and money on investing in a fairytale wedding than they do on investing in the marriage itself. Anyone who has had experience with being married knows that marriage is a full-time job. At no point in time can you choose to go on vacation from being married without running the risk of losing your spouse.
1. Make sure that there is a mutual agreement on what it means to be together, to be monogamous. Would kissing count as flirting? Holding hands with the opposite sex? Going out alone with them? It is important to list out the things you two agree on what constitutes the basic 'rules' of the relationship, the do's and dont's. Every single misunderstanding if not dealt with properly will cause a rift between the two of you, and it is a breeding ground for affairs. So be clear from the start.
2. Let him or her know that you are intolerant of cheating. And let your partner know EARLY too. Once your partner knows right from the start that you hate cheating to the core, he or she will be less likely to do it. If dis-satisfaction about this no-cheating policy is shown from the start, then you should find someone else because he or she is not worth it at all. Unless well, you want to flirt too.

Here are some tips to writing a speech that will have guests mesmerized. And no, you're not going to reveal all the bride and grooms embarrassing moments. Ok, maybe one or two, but don't go crazy.
First, here are some tips to get you started:
1. Take time to think about what you want to say. Think about what you want people to know about your friend and his new wife and what you wish for their future.
2. Sit down and write it out. ( You don't have to carry it with you to the wedding, but writing it down will help you remember what you want to say)
1. Plan to speak from 1 to 4 minutes. No one wants to be bored with an extraordinarily long toast covering the entirety of your friendship. With wedding toasts, even a short toast will do if delivered with feeling and sincerity.
2. Make sure all other glasses are full before beginning. You may want to announce to the guests, or have the MC announce to the guests, to fill their glasses because toasting will commence shortly. Then give guests 3 - 5 minutes to fill their glasses.
3. Stand to give a toast (sit to receive one) and hold your glass with your right hand as you toast. After the toast, it is tradition to then clink the glasses together before sipping.
All good things must come to an end. But, there are ways newlyweds can savor the memories from their wedding day. Here's some advice for keeping the wedding gown, bouquet and cake intact for the future.
"How will I wear my hair?" Every bride faces that predicament. Your wedding day hairstyle is a significant aspect of the total bridal look, worth some thought. If you have a bad hair day, the photos to prove it will be around for years to come. On the plus side, it's a great opportunity to do something really special with your hair.
Remember some hairstyles can add inches to your height, and shorter brides may want to use this to their advantage.
If you are planning on changing your name once you finally tie the knot, there are so many options. Do you hyphenate, keep your maiden name as your middle name, combine both names, or be traditional? Well whichever option you choose, the name change process can seem overwhelming. There are numerous forms to gather from many government agencies. You'll need a social security form, US passport form, driver's license form, voter registration form, IRS forms, forms to send to your employer, insurance company, utilities companies, and all organizations of which you are a member. Many brides put off the process and wait for months or even years to change their name. The process is really not that horrible. Once you gather your forms & complete them, most can be sent in through the mail. The only office you'll need to visit in person is the motor vehicle department.
Invitations should be selected as soon as the date is set and the guest list is completed. Usually couples select them at least three to six months in advance to allow plenty of time for ordering, proofreading the text and addressing the invitations or hiring a calligrapher. Invitations should be mailed no later than four to six weeks before the wedding and up to eight weeks ahead for summer or holiday weddings, due to busy schedules.
The items you order for your invitation set should include the invitation itself, as well as several enclosures. The invitation announces the wedding couple and their sponsors. Of course, it also lets your guests know the date, time and location of the ceremony.
There are many kinds of bridal showers. Choosing one both bride and guests will enjoy and find memorable can be challenging and fun. Some suggestions are:
As all gatherings don't lend themselves to games, most agree the bridal shower is the perfect place for the guests to relax, get to know one another and have fun. Types of games vary depending on the size of the shower, the theme, the age of the guests and the time allotted. Just remember to have lots of prizes – like movie passes, body lotion, elegant chocolates, or gourmet coffees and teas - because some guests are quite competitive. If necessary, be prepared to "retire" the winners so other guests can have a chance to win something, too. It is also a good idea to select different types of games to keep guests interested and on their toes. Though three games seems to be a nice number, allowing for both silliness and special moments, it's wise to be prepared to play fewer or more games depending on how the shower progresses.
Some people see 'luck' as a force that operates for good, or otherwise, in shaping circumstances or offering opportunities. It is a chance happening beyond a person's control and there is a natural urge to improve good luck, or at least avoid bad luck. Lucky Charms, Lucky Symbols and Lucky Rituals are used to achieve this.
