Top Tip for Your Wedding Day

Top Tip for Your Wedding Day

The average bride-to-be will have at least a short vision of what her wedding will be like: what the guests will think, what the food will be, and, of course, how good she will look. As a result of this many brides will decide to get fit, and maybe lose weight. Even the thinnest may choose to go on a cleanse for the big day! This is understandable, but nutrition is, as always, key to keeping our bodies fit, healthy and running at optimal levels. No-one is in the least surprised when brides say they are going to diet for their big day, but it’s so important that it is done right. It is essential that brides-to-be fuel themselves with high nutrient alternatives to the fatty or sugary foods they wish to avoid rather than cutting down or avoiding eating. This is especially the case on the day of the wedding when a good, steady supply of energy will be needed to get through the long, exciting day. Hunger, fatigue, and stress can lead to …

Choosing Your Own Wedding Vows

Choosing Your Own Wedding Vows

Planning a wedding requires a great deal of decision making, and one of the most important features on your big day is your vows, easily trumping the cake, catering and photography put together.  The lasting words you pronounce to each other during your wedding ceremony lend meaning to everything else that occurs that day, including the promises you make to one another, setting the tone for your marriage.   For better or for worse The familiar phrases such as, “for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, until death do us part,” have been recited for centuries at traditional wedding ceremonies, but more recently have often been replaced by carefully crafted personalized vows of commitment by brides and grooms who want a more unique way to express who they are as a couple.  If you are considering writing your own vows for your impending wedding, be sure to weigh all of the pros and cons before committing. Heartfelt vows The first thing to decide is whether both of you are equally excited about …

Couples often wonder if they should have the wedding inside or out, mountain side or in the desert and so on; but stop for a minute and just think about how amazing it would be to celebrate your wedding at the beach.

Best Destinations for Weddings in Mexico

Planning any wedding is stressful. There are, it seems, a million questions and decisions that all need your attention at any given time. Cake tastings, dress fittings, flower choices (OK, these ones are quite fun), seating arrangements, the in-laws (to be) and the menu for the reception, but the most important is undoubtedly the where and when of your big day.
