Info of Wedding Speech

Father’s speech

The brides father should be called upon by the best man to propose a toast to both the bride and the bridegroom. But before doing that, relatives and close friends ar to say a few simple words of the bride. Then the brides father will appreciate the bride in words and followed by the toast.

Bridegroom’s speech

The bridegroom will take the opportunity to thank their parents on the years they were brought up for the love and care, and also for the blessings they receive from them.
If there are members in the family or close friends that are unable to attend your wedding, you should mention them and wish them a speedy recovery. Lastly, appreciate those great helpers that have help you through the day for a job well done.

Best man’s speech

It is important that the best man’s speech to be light hearted and fun. It is suppose to be the most interesting part in the whole event with humour and stories to tell. Here is an example:

About Backyard Honeymoons

For super cheap honeymoons try looking in your own backyard. I don’t mean “literally” your backyard, but I would be willing to bet that not far from you, there is a perfect little honeymoon getaway.

* If you are from a small town, go to the city. Enjoy the hospitality of an upscale hotel for a couple of nights. Be pampered!

* If you are from the city, get away from it all to a secluded little bed and breakfast inn on a lake somewhere.

Having traveled Canada and the United States all my life, I can tell you that the entire coastline of our North American continent is wondrous. Whether you are in Alaska, Maine, British Columbia, California or Florida, the beaches are breathtaking. Each has it’s own special qualities that make it unique and beautiful.

You may be the type that enjoy polar bears, harp seals and whale watching in Alaska. Perhaps you are the outdoors type. Check out the lazy sea lions and try salmon fishing in British Columbia. While

Plan Cheap Wedding

Wedding Gowns

Do you really need a hand-made wedding dress with beads and diamantes? This is where the big cost is and there are several options in cutting the cost. Why not opt for a second-hand wedding dress? It’s probably only been worn once anyway and you can get a once expensive dress for half the price. Consider buying an evening gown/cocktail dress from a department store or look into renting your wedding dress for the day.

The Reception

This is where the cost of a wedding can get out of hand. The wedding reception is normally the biggest expense, but one of the easiest to cut down on costs. Statistics show that an average of 189 guests attend a wedding, this is a lot. Try and keep your guest list to a minimum, do you really need to invite family members who you have never seen for years? Instead of a three-course meal why not opt for a hot and cold buffet (even cater for yourself)? Instead of holding the reception in an expensive hotel suite or wedding reception, why not consider having it

Planning Second Wedding

When planning for your second wedding use heartfelt, common sense before announcing your new engagement. Some couples who have previously been married may have children and previous family members who need to be informed personally of your new future. Inform them first before announcing it in a newspaper.

Also think before registering for gifts at department stores. When registering for your second wedding, think about the things you need, as a couple. You may already have items that would commonly be bought for first time marriages, such as towels and dishes. Instead think about registering for those things that will help you bring your new home together, such as new curtains, bedding or items you can use to remodel the home that you’re moving into.

Many years ago, attire for a previously married bride meant absolutely no white. That is not the case anymore. When planning your second wedding, if you decide you want to wear a flowing white gown, it’s considered perfectly acceptable. One thing to avoid is a veil, which represents virginity. Instead of a veil, think about adorning your head with a crown or tiara or a beautiful new hairstyle. Whichever you choose,

Great Flower Girl Dresses

Here are some flower girl dress ideas for the most popular wedding themes around:

Cinderella Wedding Theme

If you are planning a Cinderella wedding theme, then extravagance and beauty should be a part of everything. And since your flower girls will be the first to appear, they need to set the tone boldly. For this theme, you should have more than one flower girl-three or four would be ideal-and then dress them spectacularly. Choose frilly white dresses with huge skirts and satin bows. You can tie in some of your wedding colors by adding fresh pale pink, yellow or blue flowers to their hair. In addition, they should wear satin ballerina slippers. Have them carry baskets decorated to match their dresses and throw tons of soft rose petals along the isle.

Beach Wedding Theme

Depending on the type of beach wedding that you want, you will have various choices with your flower girl dresses. If you want a romantic beach wedding, then put your flower girls in soft pastel tones or white, and use lots of fresh flowers-both in their hair and for them to throw. The flower girl wedding dresses can be shorter

Best Sites for Wedding and Reception

Let’s start with the budget first. By keeping in mind your budget throughout the whole decision making process, you can prevent heartache in the end. Suppose you found the perfect dream wedding spot only to learn that you could not possibly afford to hold your wedding there? Likely if you chose to have your ceremony in any other spot it would pale in comparison and be a disappointment when compared with the one you couldn’t swing.

On the other hand, what if you threw caution to the wind and indulged in the more expensive site? In this case, you might become bitter about your wedding day when the bills start to pile up or when you have to forgo your honeymoon to cover the costs. These two scenarios illustrate why it is very important to evaluate the cost before investigating any particular wedding or reception site. If it’s over your budget, don’t even look at it.

Your theme and type of wedding are also very important when choosing the perfect spot for your wedding nuptials. If you are having an informal country wedding, it would not make much sense to book an elaborate reception hall. A

Blended Bride

What’s a bride to do to find peace and have a wonderful wedding day?

#1 – Bury your own hatchet and keep perspective. The bride is the center of attention on her big day – but not the universe. A wedding is a celebration of love and happiness – not a weapon for wielding and wounding.

Your wedding is not the time to remind your sister about the “great” guy she divorced, or to snub your dad’s wife or mother’s new husband. Even if you blackmail one or both parents into ditching their current spouses during the ceremony, the emotional repercussions of wedding invitations can ring for years.

Think about the atmosphere you want to set for your guests. It may please you to no end to keep “him” or “her” from sitting down front next to your parents, but consider your guests and their feelings. Think about the legacy you want to build as you create a new family.

#2 – If you want for your wedding to be a family occasion, then treat it like one and honor your relatives. Honor your relatives by inviting them – and their current spouses. Part

Stunning Wedding Graphics

The Internet can be your best friend when searching for wedding graphics. There are many sites that specialize in low or no cost graphics. Most of these feature wedding graphics and include directions on downloading the images to your own PC, allowing you to get to work immediately being a computer wizard.

In order to start producing your web site or invitations you’ll need a decent graphics editing software. Adobe Photoshop is the application of choice for most digital artists and graphic designers, but if you’re not expecting to launch a graphic design company of your own you may find Photoshop’s cost a bit on the high end at approximately $800.00. There are many other graphics editing programs available, however, with price points ranging from about $50.00 to $100.00. Any of these will help you get started in editing and designing your wedding graphics without breaking your bank account.

Once you learn the ins & outs of your chosen application and have gathered some wedding graphics that you’re pleased with, you’re ready to get started. If you’re designing a web site about your wedding, it can be done without any knowledge of HTML (the computer language

Choose Your Wedding Colors

If you are having bridesmaids, then choosing the bridesmaids dress is extremely important. One way to simplify choosing wedding colors is to visit a wedding boutique store with your bridesmaids. Choose a dress that looks good and everyone is comfortable in. This is very important, too often the bridesmaids end up in an uncomfortable dress that fits poorly. Now what you do is just ask the clerk what colors the dress comes in. You just eliminated all the colors the dress doesn’t come in. Once you decide on a color for their dresses, you can use this as a main color for your wedding.

When choosing your wedding colors think about the different colors that you like most. You may want to choose a main color and one or two accent colors for visual beauty. If you really don’t have a favorite color – or if it really isn’t suitable for a main wedding color, think about the season that you’re getting married in.

If you’re planning a spring or summer wedding go with pastels and lighter, brighter colors. For winter ceremonies you might want to consider darker tones like purples and burgundies. Or you can

Tricks Customize Wedding

· Choose your music according to your tastes, not how it’s been done for years. If there are a lot of traditionalists in the audience, you may want to only have one song that is uniquely your song, while the rest are traditional songs. For example, the recessional at the very end is a great place to play “your song.”

· Instead of flowers, which are costly and short-lived, consider candles which can be as equally as beautiful but are cheaper and there will still be some life left in them after the wedding for your personal use.

· Incorporate important aspects of who you are into the ceremony and reception. If you are both into horses, why not ride off together into the sunset on horseback? If you are both into scuba-diving, why not have your ceremony at a beautiful resort overlooking the ocean?

· The bride’s bouquet does not have to be entirely made of flowers. It can also contain candles, a teddy bear, and even a tasteful urn of the ashes of a departed loved one who should be honored on this special day.

· A wedding cake is an expensive

Wedding Vows

Traditional Vows Have Years of Meaning

There is history in traditional vows, and something moving about reciting the same vows as generations of men and women before you, promising a lifetime of love and commitment to each other. Many faiths have their own distinct version of the promises a couple makes to each other, and because they have been used for so long, they have depth of meaning already built in. Even if you decide to be very creative in writing your own vows, it would be wise to study traditional vows and consider what makes them so moving and incorporate some aspects of them into your own vows.

A Creative Expression of Commitment

Writing your own wedding vows allows you to be creative in the words you speak when promising your life to another. They allow you to create very personal and individualized expressions of marital commitment. Here are some ideas to help you put together the perfect wedding vows.

If you have any favorite love poems, stories, or songs, write down your favorite passages. Look through religious literature and select passages that are appropriate for your relationship or feelings. Consider how you

Wedding Gift Ideas

If you know the theme of the wedding, your shopping time could be cut in half. Simply choose a unique gift, they both will enjoy that concentrates around the theme.

If you don’t know the theme of the wedding, think about the couple. What is their couple “identity”? For example, if they take a trip together… Do they go camping, skiing, golfing, to the beach, to the mountains?

Another approach… what’s their entertainment style? What do they do in their free time? The concept is to come up with something you know they both love and then choose your gift to match the topic. Here’s a sample:

A friend of mine knew my husband and I had a small vacation home on one of the North Carolina beaches. She also knew that whenever we could get away, that’s where we went. For our wedding present, she gave us a book full of photographs and information on the North Carolina coast. Inside the book were two gift certificates, one for a day at the spa for me, and one for a massage for him.

It has been almost fourteen years and we still have the

About Family Law

No simple answer exists to this question: our intimate relationships have been affected by the industrialization of society, urbanization, continued changes in the traditional roles of the sexes and greater economic independence for women, a rise in the percentage of the population pursuing a college education, a lessening of social pressure against couples who cohabit, the recognition of legal rights for llegitimate children, a decreasing birth rate, improved birth control methods and a longer life expectancy. All these factors contribute to our alarming divorce rate.

Is it any wonder the state ( literally, the state you live in and as, generically, any form of government) must pass laws that affect our personal relationships as we struggle for answers?

You can take opposing views of the laws in our country. One argument is that they protect society and its members, but the flip side contends they are a means of oppression. The laws that impact our intimate relationships are not necessarily harmful or intrusive in and of themselves. However, forming a relationship without a working knowledge of these laws and without considering all the ramifications can lead to situations where the end result is both.

About Wedding Shower Favors

The tradition of wedding showers began centuries ago in the Netherlands. The story tells of a Dutch girl who desired to be married, but she had no dowry that would enable her to be wed. Her family was poor and nothing had been put aside for her dowry. At that time, the European cultures perceived that women were of a lesser value than men, so it was a requirement for a girl’s family to provide money or other material things to equalize the support a husband would provide for his new wife. Frequently men would refuse to marry a girl if she failed to provide a dowry. The girl’s friends seeing her distress, pitched in and “showered” her with the many items needed to establish a household. Preserved foods, quilts, linens, cooking utensils and furniture were contributed so that her dowry was in order.

Although society no longer requires dowry’s from women, it’s still quite expensive to establish a new household, especially if the bride and groom haven’t been living on their own. The tradition continues through all cultures and for brides of all financial means. Wedding shower gifts continue to be primarily household items and linens.

Wedding Shower Checklist

Who should host the shower?

Traditionally the maid of honour tends to plan the shower party. But today, anything goes and it is perfectly acceptable for both family and friends to work together to organize, host and share the cost of the wedding shower. It doesn’t really matter who actually hosts the party as long as it is planned well in advance and normally in consultation with the bride. If the shower is planned to be in someone’s home, then it’s always a good idea to choose the person with the largest home or garden.

When to have your party

Because of the busy schedule the bride and her family will have in the lead up to her wedding, it is best to hold the shower about four to six weeks before the wedding. A growing trend is that more wedding showers are no longer a surprise and statistics show that 4 out of 5 brides are employed, therefore it is necessary to include the bride in the planning when it comes to setting a date and time. A traditional ‘girl-only’ party could be a Sunday brunch, a midweek lunch or an afternoon tea garden
