November 06, 2011 0 Comments Wedding ettiquette by Administrator

Are you confused about which type of wedding ring you should purchase? You’ll have to give this question a great deal of thought because your ring is more than just a piece of jewelry. It is something that you will hopefully be wearing for the rest of your life! If you want to wear a ring that is unlike the regular gold wedding bands that almost every person wears, you’ll find a lot more options to choose from. In fact, once you choose your ring you can get this issue out of the way and then focus on other tasks that are also very important such as sending out wedding invitations and ordering the right bonbonnieres.

If gold wedding bands are too commonplace for you, why don’t you try platinum instead? This metal is even more costly than gold and it has a very subtle look. In fact, no one will say that this ring is a flashy one. You might also prefer a ring made out of platinum if you prefer to wear watches that are made of steel. A gold wedding ring will simply not match your look if you prefer to wear accessories made of silver, platinum or any light colored metal.

Wedding Eve – How to Make It Special

October 27, 2011 0 Comments Wedding ettiquette by Administrator

Have you been working really hard in the months leading up to your wedding? There are so many different preparations that need to be done before a wedding, from finalizing your beautiful dress and getting wedding invitations out to small but important things like selecting bonbonnieres for your guests that it is very easy to get completely overwhelmed. You need to ensure that you are completely relaxed at least the night before your wedding so that you can turn up feeling totally refreshed and looking gorgeous. The best way to do this is by planning something special for your wedding eve. Wedding eve events and ceremonies are prevalent in most cultures because they mark the last night the bride spends under her parent’s roof as an unmarried girl. These days, lots of couples are already living together and the only way that they can make this happen is if an all-girls event is organized so that the bride can move out that night. You should first consider what cultural expectations there are of you when you sit down to plan activities for your wedding eve. You can follow them whole or in part, depending on your preference and convenience. One good idea is to have a wedding eve "slumber party" so that you and your female friends and family members can have a wonderful time together. A bottle of champagne will not be amiss on that night. In fact, you could organize the event at a nice resort or spa. Make sure that things don’t get too boisterous though, because you certainly don’t want to turn up at your wedding with dark circles under your eyes. You can make your wedding eve special by organizing pedicures, facials and manicures for everyone. You could also ensure that everyone is served a variety of delicious health foods and drinks instead of greasy and heavy meals so that you and your friends look and feel beautiful the next day. You can even have this event at home if you want to keep your budget down. Of course, you and your close friends might start the day making arrangements for the wedding because there are many things that have to be done right at the end, such as checking with the caterer and decorator and ensuring that the bonbonnieres and flowers arrive on time. You should also go through your wedding invitations list one last time to check against RSVPs. Once you have finished with the work you can all relax in comfortable surroundings and have a great time reminiscing. Your wedding eve will be really special if you present your close friends with a lovely memento in acknowledgement of the support they have given you over the years. After all, these are ladies who have probably helped address and mail your wedding invitations and have also helped you sift through lots of options for bonbonnieres, flowers and the like. A lovely slumber party on the night before your wedding is a great way to thank them for all their help.
