This could make more of an impression than a couture wedding gown; while what you wear and say will be forgotten within a couple years, it will be the unique aspects that the guests will remember for the rest of their life. 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.

Improving Your Marriage

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.
1. Keep an open and free communication. Regular and light talk between you and your partner would lead to a better understanding of both sides. As much as possible, have that line of interaction open, and do not be shy or hesitant to speak out what the two of you have in mind.
2. Work hard to make the relationship count. That means, you have to reach a consensus into executing several tasks, be it home chores or whatever. Division of labor would make the two of you feel like really equals.


The unfaithful wife seeking forgiveness

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.


The unfaithful husband seeking forgiveness

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 not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it – he will be blessed in what he does. James (1:22-25)


How to marry a millionaire

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?
I had a classmate in college who was fascinating. She was very plain looking, was a poor student, had no discernable talents, and could sometimes be sarcastic. Obviously, that is not what made her interesting. Her entire focus was on finding and marrying a millionaire. I seriously doubted she could do it, but I watched her strategies from the sidelines.


How to tell if your wife is cheating and more importantly how to stop her cheating!

First of all let’s look at the obvious tell tale signs, that your wife is cheating, there are lots of them, but I believe these to be the best.

1. Suddenly, she takes four hours to get ready instead of two! This is one of the best signs, appearance! New hair style or much more regular visits to the hair salon, different perfume, new clothes, new underwear, has her nails done, etc,etc.
2. Nips out to the shop dressed immaculately and returns two hours later saying she met an old friend from years ago.
3. She panics when the phone rings.
4. Here’s a classic, less arguing at home, she doesn’t mind if you go out with the lads, she lets you do things at home where she always used to moan, nag and make a big deal about it.


4 kinds of marriage mates

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"

Soul Mates
We've all heard this term many times and it is what most of us desire. You feel connected at a soul-ullar level, passion is high, and it's a great place to be.

Life Mates
Life mates are couples who have decided to spend their lives together, even though some of the passion and luster have worn off. These couples genuinely love each other, care about each other, they are just not passionately in love.


The soul mate marriage

Marriage partners can be soul mates. This is the absolutely best type of marriage, although it is rare.
In recent years, books, songs, movies and other popular media have extolled the glories of the soul mate marriage. While it does exist in real life, it is a bit more difficult to come by than the popular culture leads us to believe and expect.

Signs of Soul Mates
Connected at a soul-ullar level
Each partner believes they got the better deal
Passion is high and remains high
Know each other well
Take care of each other's heart


You need to have a marriage license if you want to marry!

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.
Some states in America have different sets of conditions but the basic requirements are the same nationwide, and that it you are free to marry. There are many countries around the world that permit a man to have than one wife, but not so here in the USA.
Of course, folks can re-marry, but once again, they have to be divorced before they can proceed with their application for a marriage license and merely a legal separation will not suffice. So, once the happy couple-to-be are issued with their marriage license, the authorized person performing the ceremony must have a copy of the marriage certificate by law, otherwise the marriage is not legally binding.


Marriage is not a fairytale wedding

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.


Ways to prevent love affairs and cheating spouses

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.

Announcing your engagement

Decide upon your type of wedding first!
Before grabbing the mega phone to broadcast the news of your engagement to everyone else, it helps knowing a little bit about the type of wedding you wish to have. Why is this important? It seems that sensitivity levels of friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, old family friends, people you thought could care less about you and so forth are heightened with the anticipation of receiving a wedding invitation. For this reason, it is a good idea to know your wedding style/size before informing people outside the immediate family.

A Large Wedding?
Will it be a large wedding where basically everyone you inform will be invited? Then you can tell everyone, “Brad and I are getting married next summer and we hope to see you there!”


Choosing dresses for bridesmaids

When choosing bridesmaid dresses, it is customary for the bride-to-be to choose the style, length and color.
Some brides do ask for input from their bridesmaids regarding the dresses. It's a good idea to take your maid of honor shopping and maybe even a bridesmaid or two to get feedback on dress ideas.

Style and Color of Bridesmaids' Dresses
You will want to consider the figures of your individual bridesmaids before choosing a dress. You'll want their dresses to complement your dress while not taking focus from it. Many brides choose bridesmaids dresses in one of their wedding colors. Your bridesmaid dresses can be a soft pastel shade like pink, powder blue, peach, or lavender, or you can go bold with jewel tones like deep green, royal blue, eggplant, or ruby red.


Asian themed weddings

Asian-themed weddings are on the rise. At first this might come as a surprise. After all, nothing could seem further from the Laura Ashley vision we summon for the word, "wedding."
Today's trends break down into two main types of Asian weddings: the Japanese or "Zen" style, which values simplicity and nature, and the more riotous Chinese style, which bristles with bright colors and shiny fabrics.

Although either choice may surprise your older guests, you may find a deep expression of personal values in an Asian-themed wedding. After all, the usual wedding is a type of pageant: the couple pretends to be royalty for a day, and lavishly entertains a large party -while racking up the debt.


Weddings on a budget

Good communication is essential when discussing money and budgets. The bride and groom should discuss the budget openly, and diplomatically, with their families, but no one should feel pressured to contribute.
Setting a realistic budget and sticking to it, is a critical element for keeping costs down. Couples can easily get carried away during the planning process, upgrading here and there, quickly surpassing the budget. The wedding budget can be broken down into six major categories: reception, music, photography, flowers, bride's attire and miscellaneous. As a rough guideline, plan on devoting about 50 percent of your budget to the reception (including site, food, drink, rentals, service and cake) and 10 percent each to the other five categories. These amounts are flexible, but they do provide a workable starting point.


Wedding speech

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)


Commandments of toasting

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.


Preserve memories

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.

The Cake
The tradition of eating a piece of wedding cake on the first anniversary can be followed if proper steps have been taken before freezing it. That way you can have your cake and eat it too!
Encase the upper most layer securely in plastic wrap, then aluminum foil. Beware of using foil alone as it can leave the cake with a nasty, metallic taste. Store the cake in the back of the freezer where the temperature remains constant so the cake will retain its original flavor.


Wedding day hair

"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.

Styles
Consider the time of day and type of wedding when choosing a style. Loose styles are appropriate for informal or daytime weddings, while up-do's portray a formal, evening look. Strive for balance. The hairstyle and headpiece needs to look balanced to the dress and body type. Like a puzzle, all the pieces fit together to make a lovely picture.

Remember some hairstyles can add inches to your height, and shorter brides may want to use this to their advantage.


Changing your name after marriage

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.


Invitation etiquette

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.


Types of bridal showers

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:

  • Craft Night – For the creative bride and her friends and family, this is a unique idea. Homemade crafts are constructed during the shower. Ask the bride what she wants for her new home, then make a list of the materials you will need to provide. Some basics are thread, needles, cloth, glue or hot glue guns, and scissors. Practical crafts that turn supplies into family heirlooms are simple pillows, beaded Christmas decorations, painted wooden signs or other decorative items. The possibilities are endless, but be sure the guests know to dress appropriately.

Games and activities for a bridal shower

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.


What is luck?

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.
There are numerous lucky charms, symbols and rituals including lucky talismans, such as a rabbit's foot, a cross, a four-leaf clover, or some other Pagan related symbol, lucky rituals, such as crossing your fingers, choosing a lucky number or making the sign of the cross, wedding superstitions such as the bride's veil, the best day to get married, wedding rings and decorating cakes with lucky horseshoes
...and despite what Ads by Google may be claiming on this page, it's rather absurd to believe that any of these things can influence luck.


What's in a kiss?

"A kiss is the shortest distance between two."(Youngman)
A warm, moist human mouth is a commune of over 400 different species of micro-organisms. Billions of the little rascals, who easily out-number the human population of the Earth, live quite happily on teeth, the soft fleshy mouth surfaces, and particularly the tongue. These bacteria thrive on all the sugar and carbohydrates that pass by and multiply until we next brush our teeth. Each time we kiss, we pass a few million on to our partner.
So is that what's in a kiss? Or is there a bit more?
You bet there is!
This page looks at the three types of kiss:
• the natural kiss
• the sensual kiss
• the symbolic kiss
The Wedding Kiss is a combination of all three.


Wedding trends

1. Consider having a theme wedding! Theme weddings are rising in popularity and offer a great, inexpensive way to personalize your wedding. By starting with a theme, you will be surprised at how easy it is to personalize your wedding with your own special touches.
2. You don't necessarily need to have a period theme, such as a Victorian or Renaissance wedding. Instead, you could make your wedding memorable by personalizing it with your own special theme. There are many themes to choose from, including: "cupids", "Paris in springtime", "romantic candlelight" etc.
3. Some brides are starting to use wedding newsletters to keep their family and friends up to date with their wedding plans and schedules. Newsletters can save you from making endless phone calls, and can be revised three or four times leading up to your wedding date. The newsletter can include such information as: when people are needed for fittings, profiles on yourself and the groom (for guests you may not have met) and other personal information.


Best man responsibilities

The groom selects his Best Man. It is typically his brother, father, a close relative or friend. In the case of a second marriage, he can even choose his son to be his Best Man.
The Best Man plays an important role. He is responsible for:
Getting the groom to the church
Holding onto the rings
Giving the first toast to the bride and groom
Now, if you read the etiquette books, the best man has a long list of responsibilities, such as... 
Arrange for ushers to be fitted for tuxes
Coordinate ushers' activities on the wedding day
Help the groom get dressed
Stay with the groom up until the time of the ceremony and offer moral support
Make sure the groom is packed "appropriately" for his honeymoon
Make and/or confirm the couple's honeymoon arrangements
Drive the groom to the ceremony

Maid of honor responsibilities

Your Maid of Honor should be your closest friend - many times, a bride will choose her sister. Some brides will choose to have both a Matron of Honor (a married woman) as well as a Maid of Honor (an unmarried woman). And, some choose to have more than one Maid of Honor.

The main role of the Maid of Honor is to help the bride with the wedding planning... this can include shopping for dresses, addressing invitations, putting together favors and just being there when the bride needs some extra help, support or someone to talk to.
Traditionally, there are some specific duties that the maid of honor is to perform:
Adjusts the bride's veil and train before she walks down the aisle and during the ceremony as needed.


The history of the wedding cake

The history of the wedding cake began with bread (usually wheat) and was subsequently broken over the head of the bride for a plentiful life and years of happiness.  Guests scrambled for the crumbs and partook of them eagerly as they were assumed to be tokens of good luck.
More recently, brides and grooms kissed over bunches of little cakes and later, the cakes were made into one with icing over them and thus the tiered wedding cake custom began.
For many years, the top layer of the cake was frozen and then consumed on the first anniversary. However, with the invent of preservatives, and who knows what else, many now suggest this top layer be eaten on the one month anniversary or soon after.

10 Tips to combat wedding stress

o Spend a day making a time capsule. Each of you can write a letter containing your thoughts, dreams and hopes for your new life together. Put the two letters in a box and seal it. You can then open the box on a set date, maybe your 25th wedding anniversary.
o Consider having a sentimental theme wedding, "romantic candlelight" would be a good idea.
o Make a special wedding gift for your partner. For example, you could laminate a box with photographs or keepsakes, such as ticket stubs, from your courtship together.
o Have a message to your partner printed on a rented billboard that they will be sure to see on their way to the ceremony!


Getting married for the second time

Getting married for the second time? Or maybe you're marrying someone who has already been married before? Here are a few tips:
Don't Ask: Don't ask about the details of his first wedding, and if you were married before, don’t bring up what you did at your first wedding. Just concentrate on planning the wedding the way you want it to be.

Big Versus Small: What about if he's been married before and you want a large, traditional wedding and he wants something much smaller and informal. This can happen with couples that aren't even dealing with a previous marriage. The only answer here is compromise.

10 Most Asked Questions by Brides

1. How can I let people know where I am registered?
Word of mouth is really only the "proper" way to inform people where you are registered. You really must wait until they ask you or other family members. All friends and family members should be told where you are registered so they can inform others when asked.

We think of colorful flowers and spring-like colors, but what of winter weddings? Do they offer the same amount of creativity?
Winter weddings hold their own unique beauty that many often overlook. Imagine, if you will, a crackling fireplace draped with holly or fresh greens from a pine or spruce tree. Winters are cozy and romantic, the perfect setting for a wedding. Not only will you find more availability of a space to hold the wedding and reception, freer schedules of caterers and photographers, but there is a world of possibility for winter weddings.

You can use this moodboard later when visiting potential suppliers to convey your ideas in a visual way. The following ideas may help you pick a theme for your wedding.


The tradition of the wedding dress

If you are going to get married, tradition requires certain etiquette. The wedding dress is one such traditional item with different meanings through the world.
In western modern tradition, the color of western-culture wedding dresses is white. Used in this sense, 'white' or 'wedding white' includes creamy shades such as eggshell, ecru and ivory. The popularity of this color can be traced back to 1840 and the marriage of Queen Victoria. The Queen chose to wear a white gown for the event. The official wedding portrait photograph was widely published and many brides opted for a similar dress in honor of that choice.

The first consideration is obviously the wedding invitations themselves. These should include the day, date, time and location of the wedding. It should also include the names of the bride and groom and the names of whoever is hosting the wedding if different than the bride and groom.
