The Wedding Honeymoon

The Wedding Honeymoon

Finally after exchanging the vows, after the wedding reception, there is always a Honeymoon. Most people go to other countries or spend their honeymoon in a hotel or in a beach resort while some of them go to their newly bought house. This is the time to relax from all that stressful preparations for you wedding. But there are some good locations that can easily take away those stress and cuddle with your spouse at the same time.

For those who want to have a very sweet memory with a relaxing taste of nature, a sea-side vacation house is a good spot. Watch the sunset; listen to the sea shore and of course diving. Have a body massage for a total relaxation and spend the whole night in front of the beach with your honey. To top it off, have a dinner for two in a sea food restaurant near your vacation house. This kind of place is very relaxing and it can take away that stress so easily.

For the newly wed couples who are not into nature type, you can go to a first-class hotel. In this location, although its kind of expensive but you can still relax and enjoy your honeymoon. While in a room, try their first class Jacuzzi (if they have one) with your spouse and enjoy a glass of champagne. On dinner, try their best dishes and spend a night in a king sized bed perfectly prepared for the newly weds.

Although having your honeymoon makes you spend so much, having a good memory and time with your spouse is more important than money.

October 4, 2007 - The Wedding Day

The feeling is like you are floating in the air but carrying 10 people at your back at the same time. You don’t know where to go or what to do on the day of your wedding. Having that same feeling? Well it’s natural.

This is the exact feeling that I had during my wedding. It is maybe I don’t want my wedding to screw up or maybe I was thinking that my spouse-to-be might say “I do….. Not”. This is where the pressure starts. If you are starting to feel this, take a seat, take a deep breath and tell yourself that everything will be ok. Don’t worry if your spouse-to-be will say I do not, there are plenty of things in the church for you to make him realize that he loves you….. Just kidding. Anyway keep in mind that if you are on this stage that means he/she really loves you and ready to spend his/her entire life with you. With this kind of thinking, your body will start to relax before, during and after the wedding. And always keep in mind when you reach to this stage, THERE IS NO GOING BACK. Even if the world will end, even if you or your spouse die in vain there is no going back.

Luckily my spouse said “I do” in front of me. I was thinking I have to kick him in the balls before he says I do but then, look what the miracle brought me. I wasn’t sure what to do on that time if he says I am not ready but he is the one who proposed to me and said that he is prepared to have our own family. With this way of thinking everything went smoothly according to plan. As we signed our marriage contract, I felt at ease (Watch out, you are now my husband you can’t escape!).

At last we are officially declared as husband and wife and then, there goes our visitors. Before we were able to get to our destination for the reception, my husbands father went after us just in time. Then we went to the hotel on where the reception took place. I thought everything will be ok but I didn’t know the problem starts here. We had an arrangement that our reception will be on exactly 3 o’ clock since we didn’t know what time our wedding will end. Unfortunately we ended 30 minutes before the said time and the cater serviceman said that they are still preparing the food. As I can see through the eyes of my husband “I feel like hell here” something like that is what he will say if he can’t eat immediately. As far as I know, he didn’t eat his breakfast and lunch so he must be pretty starving during that time and I can always hear his tummy grumbling. 40 minutes after, the food was ready. Everyone was already in their place and ready to eat. Then off we go in preparing for our honeymoon.

Choosing the Perfect Wedding Rings

Choosing your Perfect Wedding Rings

The wedding rings and engagement rings you choose will be one of the most enduring pieces of your wedding day. Your ring is not only a important element of becoming married, but its also a longlasting symbol of your love and commitment. Therefore, you'll want to choose rings that are timeless and high quality.

Ultimately, you'll also want to be an educated consumer who knows what you're getting for your dollar.

Follow your instincts with the look and design of your ring, while asking yourself if it will be a design you'll be comfortable wearing every day for the rest of your life. The traditional plain gold band will be in style for years to come. If that's too plain for you, consider a beaded edge or an engraved style. For a slightly flashier look, what about a ring of channel-set diamonds? Ultimately, choose a ring that you feel is expressive of your style and personality. I've heard of a couple that chose to have rings custom-made that resembled bicycle gears, reflecting their mutual love of bike-riding. There's really no wrong answer as to what style of ring you should choose.

Gold, Silver or Platinum?
Many couples choose the metal for their bands by matching it to their engagement ring. However, don't feel bound to this. A bride can choose to wear her engagement ring on her right hand, and wedding ring on the left. Also, each of you can wear a similar style in different metals. Consider which metals each of you wear regularly - is most of her jewelry silver? Is his watch gold?

Primary ring metal choices include:

* Yellow gold:
the most traditional of ring metals; for many gold is a symbol of the warmth and love of a marriage. Look at the mark inside the band to see what quality the gold is - usually 14k, 18k, or 24k. While 24k is the most pure, it is also the softest. If you work with your hands, you may want to choose 14k or 18k to prevent scratches.
* White Gold:
A hot trend because it coordinates with both silver and platinum jewelry, yet is cheaper than platinum.
* Platinum:
This very stylish metal is also the hardest metal, making it for many a symbol of enduring love. Also, because its not mixed with the lesser metals that gold rings are, platinum is safe for those with alloys. However, you'll pay more for platinum than for gold.

Precious Gems
When considering precious gems for a ring, remember that you will likely wear this ring every day for the rest of your life. Therefore, while softer stones can be beautiful, they aren't the best choices for an engagement or wedding ring. The Mohs scale registers a stone's ability to resist abrasion; 10 (diamonds) is the strongest and 1 (talc) is the weakest. Anything less than a Mohs scale 7 is not recommended for an engagement ring. If you are a person who does a lot of activity with their hands (how long does a manicure last on you?) then I would advise limiting your selection to rubies, sapphires and diamonds.

To help you out, here's a list of common stones, and their hardness level:
Diamonds 10
Rubies 9
Sapphire 9
Emerald 8
Topaz 8
Aquamarine 7.5 to 8
Amethyst 7
Garnet 6.5 to 7.5
Opal 6

You should also know that a general rule of thumb is the darker the color, the more expensive the stone. For your wedding rings you must select the best wedding rings.

Give yourself time to look at different bridal dresses - you'll get a feel for what the current styles are and decide whether you'd like to go the traditional route or go for a more modern or unique gown.Before even entering a bridal shop, your first goal should be to browse through several current bridal magazines and see what jumps out at you. Compile a collection of photos to work with, and if you find something you particularly love you can look online to see if the gown is available at a local retailer.

TIP: When you're ready to start trying dresses on, you might feel more comfortable having your best friend or a family member with you - a second pair of eyes and some moral support can help tremendously, and the day will automatically become more fun!
