Choosing the perfect wedding flowers is quite an obstacle when narrowing down the details. Every flower has a specific list of colors it is available in and depending on the season flowers can be hit or miss. Not to worry my dear! There are plenty of beautiful flowers available in the flower market and most florists can get their hands on prime pickings.
When it comes to wedding flowers and color coordination I recommend that you have your wedding colors picked out and then choose flowers that compliment or accent the overall wedding theme or color of the linens. For example at my wedding there was a beach and nature theme so the flowers were in square glass vases with seashells. The flowers were in greens, purples, pinks, and ivory that all blossomed with natural beauty and had the beach garden look.
Whether you can’t find just the right wedding favors for your reception or your budget won’t allow you buy the ones you want, you’ve got a wonderful alternative. Make unique wedding favors yourself!
Do-it-yourself wedding favors add a personal touch and give your guests something truly original. Not the crafty type? No problem. You don’t need to be. With these simple suggestions anyone can quickly make impressive, unique wedding favors your guests will rave about.
1. The Idea of Marriage:
• For most people the day you say “I do” is the day everything changes. You no longer view yourself in just a relationship but a marriage. Marriage to some can be a very important and sensitive matter because of a past experience with divorce or a religious commitment with their purity.
• Saving yourself for this one person to spend the rest of your life with is quite an honor and although it is less common in today’s society, there are expectations behind the commitment.
• I cannot emphasize this more: Make sure you discuss what each other think of marriage. What do the wedding vows mean to you? How do you plan on addressing the commitment? This will help eliminate a last minute cancellation or future divorce.
Right now you are going through one of the most emotionally draining processes you will ever experience. The six moths leading up to your wedding seem to go by very slow. Decisions need to be made and feelings tend to get the best of you. Don’t worry and relax. The best way to get through this is by taking it one day at a time.
Although you are madly in love with your fiancé and so excited about the wedding, the reality of marriage and planning the wedding will sink in. Don’t stress yourself out about these feelings of uncertainty or questions. They are normal and most women experience this. I like to refer to them as pre-wedding jitters.
