Wedding Day Jitters

Wedding Day Glamor With Champagne Wishes

Special Moments Right Before The Wedding Ceremony

It is normal to feel nervous and anxious on your wedding day.

Be sure to give yourself at least 5 minutes before walking down the aisle. Every moment has been spoken for on your wedding day. This is the moment you have planned for and worked for to finally see your dream come true. Now, take 5 and relax before you set out down the aisle. It will make such a difference in allowing you a chance to prepare and settle yourself. You have had so many people around you and now you just need to center yourself and focus. Afterall, you will soon be joining your groom for that first glimpse of you. Being a special moment in itself, it is important that you can take it all in. Relax, take 5, and enjoy that walk down the aisle.

This is a defining moment for you and your groom. Make the moment last as long as you can. Take in all the details, the family and friends that are joining in your celebration. Notice each and every detail. You will be glad you did. Most importantly walk with the assurance and confidence that all is in place and complete. No more endless lists of “To Dos”. Everything is taken care of.  Now is your moment to shine and fulfill your wedding dream and know at the same time that today is the special day to celebrate your love and commitment to each other. Today you marry your best friend.

Your wedding day is finally here and all eyes are on you. Good Luck. I wish you love and happiness.

Don’t Forget About Decorating Your Wedding Cake Table

Make your wedding cake stand out!

Red roses will make your black and white wedding cake stand out.

Let Them Eat Cake At Your Wedding.

Don’t forget to decorate the cake table at your wedding reception. Use rose petals, votive candles to make the cake table stand out.  You will want you cake elevated to show it off and set it apart from the other tables at the reception. Add a special element like glass or a custom cake stand to give it that elegant look. It will actually make your cake look larger and stand out in a ballroom or wedding venue. Make your wedding cake stand out with a bright accent color. Use the opposite linen color from your wedding color scheme to make it stand out. You can also use a sheer overlay that is a shade lighter or darker than the linens you will use for the guests. Have the cake table compliment your sweetheart table or head table if sitting with your bridal party. Find a cake topper that sets the cake off or use fresh flowers as in this picture. There are so many ways to make your cake table stand out. My favorite is to use a combination by elevating the cake, putting it on a great custom cake stand , using votives – lots, and swagging the sheer fabric with a small bouquet at each swag. No matter what, think about the cake table as an opportunity to let your sense of style shine at your wedding. Come up with something unusual that stands out and makes your cake table look classic and elegant.

Wedding Thank You Card Etiquette

Wedding Gift Thank You Card Etiquette

Make sure you thank your guests for their wedding gift!

Saying Thank You means your guests matte long after your wedding!

You will receive more gifts and money for your wedding than most of your birthdays in your life combined, for good reason.  However, you shouldn’t take this gifts or people who gave them to you for granted, they may have given you something that took great effort to get.  For this reason you should consider a few things when sending out “Thank You” cards.

  1. Don’t wait more than three months to make out and send out your thank you cards to everyone who brought you a gift.  Remember that the more time you take the less thankful and gracious you seem to be and you don’t want to give that impression to anyone.
  2. Make sure you address everyone from the family that attended the wedding in the card that you send.  Remember, most women are the ones that actually go out and purchase the gifts so even if you don’t know the woman well make sure she gets her due credit.
  3. It is very important that you document in your card what it was that the person or people who bought it for your actually bought.  When you are opening gifts  you should write down who bought what so you can reference it, this will only make people more happy with your card.

Do all of these things and you are guaranteed to have people feel great about their gift giving and remember that as other events – such as having your first  baby- occur in your life.

Don’t Get Carried Away With Diet Plans for Your Wedding

Looking Your Best On Your Wedding Day

Set realistic goals for your wedding day.

You will look gorgeous on your wedding day.

A wedding is intimidating to many men and women because of the fact that you know this is the largest event that you and your fiance will plan. Besides that, there are so many details and decisions to make. Who should you invite to the wedding?  Where should the ceremony and wedding reception take place? What kind of food will be served and in what manner? Stations, Buffet, full-plated service? What should your bouquet look like, and so on.  Then there are  the   pictures and videos that are not only taken on your wedding day but will be around for the rest of your life.  This is great in one respect as you will be able to reminisce and fondly share your wedding with each other. Besides these are the happy memories you will create for a lifetime.

However, sometimes the very thought of having to be in front of so many family and friends as well as being photographed so many times can send you into panic mode. You may decide to start a diet regiment or join Bridal Boot Camp dieting and exercising to lose weight.  Just be sure to set realistic goals and have a great support system. Perhaps all your bridesmaids will start with you.The point is to start with a goal such as lose 15 pounds in 4 months or tone and firm my legs in 3 months. Set your goal as something that is doable and fits into your schedule.

With a diet & exercise plan, working, sharing time with your fiance, and planning a wedding – you are bound to feel the stress. That’s where your support system comes in and helps you to stay on track without feeling overwhelmed. Ask for help. Delegate early on in your wedding planning. It will really help you focus on losing weight or toning up.

Losing weight should be put in to perspective. One thing I know for sure in planning weddings is that all brides are absolutely stunning on their wedding day. You will be too, I promise.  You should only try to lose weight and tone-up if you have that set that as a goal to meet for your wedding day.  As long as you lose weight the right way you will be excited and happy on your wedding day. I already know that you will glow and Wow your groom.
