Aisle Runners for Weddings

The aisle runners for weddings have been used now for centuries. In earlier centuries when there were very few paved roads the guests would walk into the wedding location and leave a track of dirt and mud. It was considered improper for the bride to walk through this dirt and mud with her dress hem dragging behind and getting soiled. Hence they were initially used to prevent the bride’s wedding dress from getting soiled. However as times changed and the dirt brought in by the guests reduced they started being used to make style statements.

In many wedding locations they are now being used to define the aisle. They hence provide a ‘regal’ touch to the most important occasion in a couple’s life. They are available in different varieties. Hence there are aisle runners for weddings available for winters as well as separate ones are available for summers. The winter ones are usually used to protect the wedding gown of the bride while the summer ones are used to define aisles in outdoor and garden weddings.

Immediately Upon Engagement Decide on a Wedding Date

There are people you really want at your wedding. Give them as much notice as possible that they should set aside the date for you. If the wedding will involve travel and an over-night stay for guests, it’s important to let them know that as soon as possible.

Wedding Traditions and Superstitions That You Should Observe

Over the past fifty plus years that I have been alive I have had many occasions to watch friends and loved ones marry. There are more than a few things I have learned about weddings as a result of all this, but adhering to some of the most common traditions and superstitions associated with weddings are the most important. Why? Because it just so happens that many of those who chose to ignore these seemingly nonsensical and sometimes almost comical steps to get to the alter have often paid a high price for their disrespect of these long standing customs.

The Wedding Dress

We have all heard that it is bad luck for the groom to see bride in her wedding dress before the ceremony. The truth is that a longer standing tradition says that it is bad luck for the bride to wear the complete wedding outfit before the day that she takes her wedding vows. That is why you almost never see a bride trying on a wedding dress with her wedding shoes,

Basic Wedding Accessories

For every wedding there is a need for the basic wedding accessories to complete every wedding venue. During the course of planning your wedding, there are the typical wedding basics that every bride focuses on first. Their favorite color scheme sets the pace, then the style or theme of the ceremony and reception. Once those two ideas have been determined, the bride will focus on her wedding dress design, style and color to coordinate with her color scheme.

The other main decisions are the type of ceremony which will determine if it will be a church or an outdoor wedding ceremony, then the wedding reception. The reception typically will follow and coordinate with the theme and style of the wedding ceremony and the entire wedding venue.

The basic wedding accessories are essentials to fulfill the internal elements of the ceremony and reception. With so many details to focus on during the process of your special day, these wedding accessories often get overlooked until the final moments are upon the bride and groom. Many times when this happens, they will find themselves scrambling for ideas and the necessities for those final accessories that are much needed.

Relationship Ruts

Relationships come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. There are a variety of relationships you can possibly have with others; mother, father, daughter, son, sister, brother, grandparent, cousin, aunt, uncle, step-parent, half-sibling, in-law, neighbour, employer, co-worker, sports acquaintances, etc. This list could go on and on for some people.

There are relationships we engage in that build us up and then there are those relationships we fool around in and play games with ourselves and our partners.

Relationships can be comfortable and confusing all at the same time for some of us.

We know when we are feeling terrific and confident in our relationship success – we also recognize (sometimes) when relationships are draining or empty; lacking in something, and way too messy.

What about the ruts we create or step into within our relationships? Behaviour is language and when we cannot recognize what we are saying or doing we are not usually open to hearing how our behaviour is impacting our romantic partners. There are many times when I have worked with someone who has carried baggage and chaos from his or her family life or prior relationship into their next

The True Meaning of A Relationship

I was recently having a conversation with a friend of mind who is much older. She got involved with a gentleman in which after being in a “relationship” for a few weeks they broke up. She was shocked to find that only a few weeks after breaking up with her that he was in a “relationship” with someone else.

This was mind blowing to her because she is like me in many ways. She just does not jump into a relationship easily. For myself, I think I have had about 2 boyfriends in my life. Both boyfriends I introduced to my family and I was very serious about. This is not to say that I did not date, because I have, but boyfriends and dating are two very different things.

For myself, I will date someone, and in the process of dating them I will determine if I would like to get more serious with them or not. Meaning, I like to determine if they are boyfriend material while dating them. I state this fact, all to say this. Both men and women of this generation need to understand what relationships are and what they

How to Create Your Own Wedding Timeline

Congratulations on your new engagement. Now what? When should you set a date? What are all the things you have to do prior to the big day? This is now the time to create a wedding timeline. The average time it takes to plan a wedding is approximately eight to sixteen months, this gives the bride and groom plenty of time to sort out all of the necessary details. Unfortunately not everyone can afford to spend that much time on planning their wedding.

There is no need to stress over learning how to plan a wedding, all you need are a few simple and effective techniques to get started.

My best advice to you is to plan your wedding planning activities ahead of time, make a detailed schedule of all of your wedding preparations shortly after the engagement. This way you can complete everything that needs to be done in a timely manner and there is little room for error. After doing extensive research and figuring out all that you have to do, schedule it in your agenda book or electronic organizer.

Break Free and Create Your Ideal Relationship

We all have preconceived notions about relationships. Our parents model them for us when we are young, and we read about couples in books and see them on TV and in movies. Yet, while everyone grows up forming his or her own picture of the perfect relationship, very little, if any, of this picture comes from an individual’s wants and desires. Therefore, we create relationships based on what society wants. In other words, we subconsciously and unintentionally act like we think we are supposed to act, in regard to what our partner and everyone else wants, as opposed to what feels good to us. Unfortunately, this causes many people to lose their sense of self when in an intimate relationship.

Being in a same-sex relationship has not spared me of society’s relationship norms. It took me years to figure out that I wanted something different. While past relationship experiences were somewhat satisfying, they did not provide me with everything I desired. As I began to reflect on my unsatisfying relationships, I asked myself the first of two questions: “Why were my relationships only mediocre?” I realized it was because I was socialized to perceive any relationship

Healthy Relationships For Beautiful Life

In happy relationships, there are five simultaneous relationships happening. Healthy relationships are based upon each person having a relationship with him-or-herself. The relationship with the self is the basic building block of a relationship. Both parties must have broken through their denial systems to some extent, achieved some modicum of honesty with themselves, and become willing to take responsibility for themselves. In general, each must be a person in his or her own right. If one does not have a relationship with the self, it is truly impossible to have a living process (healthy) relationship; it will not be possible to be honest with the “other” if one is not in contact with oneself.

This relationship with the self is a source of pleasure and expansion and needs time and nurturing in order to grow. In order to have a relationship with the self, it is necessary to have quiet time alone, time to enrich one’s spirituality. A relationship with the self takes time. Truly having a relationship with our own process relates us to the process of the universe.

The next two relationships that occur in healthy relationships are each person’s fantasized relationship with

Wedding Themes to Make Your Big Day Special

Wedding themes are used by more and more couples to turn their big day into an event that is both meaningful to them and enjoyable for their guests. You can always stick with wedding themes that are simple and elegant or go all out and do something that’s never been done before to make your wedding truly special. Remember that a wedding is an important occasion for both the bride and the groom, and a wedding theme needs to reflect that. Take the time to sit down with your partner to explore possible wedding theme ideas that will make you both happy. Consider the mood and atmosphere you want to set for your wedding. Would you like it to be very traditional or fun and quirky? Sophisticated or relaxed? Then go a little deeper and think about your personal style, personality and interests. When you figure out a general direction for coming up with a theme, the ideas will come to you naturally. Take a look at some wedding themes below and the areas of your ceremony and reception that can be influenced by the theme you choose.

Commitment, Promises, and Pledges

Something to Think About:
“Any resolution or decision you make is simply a promise to yourself, which isn’t worth a tinker’s damn unless you have formed the habit of making it and keeping it. And you won’t form the habit of making it and keeping it unless right at the start you link it with a definite purpose that can be accomplished by keeping it.”
-Albert Gray

About Commitment
As young girls, we may join a club or an organization and make a pledge or promise. As a former Girl Scout and as a former executive for Treasure State Girl Scouts of America, I lived by the Girl Scout promise and law. I still do today. Some habits are worth keeping.

As a woman, I am committed to many promises. I am committed to my marriage and my two children. I am committed to making this world a little better place by getting involved in organizations like CASA, causes against domestic violence, feeding the hungry, donating blood, being an organ donor, standing up against bullies and abusers, and participating in mentoring groups.

As a certified educator, I am committed to helping those that wish

Committing to Relationships With the Shift in the New Era

With the shift in relationships and marriage, what is commitment in ANY relationship?

Whether it’s a work relationship, a community relationship, a commitment to wake up in the morning and show up – all of our commitments these days are open to a lot of questioning.

The very structure of traditional model of marriage is no longer solid. Divorce and break ups of relationships are now an accepted part of our society. Single parent families are part of the communities we grow up in. Teenage pregnancy and the new families that are coming in are making us question:

What are we committing to? When do we commit? How long are we committing for? What is the point where we say I don’t want to do this anymore?

Are we committing to raise a child? How are we going to show up for the child? Who is going to help raise the child?

What are we committed to giving that child in this world?

Whether you are the parent of the child or not, how are you going to be affected by the change in how children are being raised?

16 Things a Bride and Groom to Be Need to Ask Their Wedding Venue

Is the wedding venue available on our wedding day?

Sounds like an obvious first question doesn’t it, but you really need to ask it first. There is no point visiting a potential wedding venue, falling in love with the idea of getting married there and not being able to make your dreams happen because another bride and groom got there first.

If you’ve already chosen your special date, then we suggest you telephone the wedding venue ahead of the visit and state you can only make that date, if they are already booked up then get back to the list and find another fantastic wedding venue.

How many guests can be seated for a meal at the wedding venue?

This is fairly crucial, you don’t want to book a wedding venue that have a seating area for 250 people if you’re only inviting 60 to a sit down meal.

In turn you also want to ensure your guests can sit comfortably without being crammed into a small venue, or even worse, being left to feel as if they’re shoved in at the back, and can barely see the top table. Once you’ve

Handling Your Relationship Problems

But be sure and understand that the only place where relationship problems will not occur is a place where there is no relationship at all.
