Commandments of Being a Bridesmaid – An Info-graphic

Posted in: , ,

Getting asked to be a bridesmaid is very much an honor so it is a role that needs to be taken seriously no matter how many times you have been asked to do it! The wedding day is a monumental occasion in the bride’s life and she has asked you to be a special part of it.

Being a bridesmaid can also be fun as you get to be in the wedding party and be treated like a VIP for the day. You also get the opportunity to get to know new people – maybe you haven’t met the groomsmen before, or maybe you haven’t met your fellow bridesmaids either!

Will You Have The Garter Removal and Tossing at Your Wedding Ceremony?

Posted in: , , ,

I have been to only one wedding where the garter was removed by the groom and tossed to the single men in the reception, mostly the groomsmen. The bride was blushing, but the groom was sedate and everyone tried to see it as fun. Not like the groom above. Do you see yourself doing this tradition during your wedding ceremony? If you're already married and did it, how did you feel?

Different Ways to Pamper Yourself Before Your Wedding Day

Posted in: , , ,

Every bride wants to be beautiful on her wedding day. Women typically dream of having the best wedding whilst still maintaining a pretty face, a great figure and a healthy, buffed physique. However, with the long list of things to prepare, organize and be apprehensive about, often times the bride loses “me” time to relax and have a breather. She usually ends up being uptight, distraught and cranky. The pressure can just build up and be overwhelming for everyone.

My interest was piqued when I heard that Kelis used a green gown when she got married to Nas. So below, I have collected some examples that I really love, from Red, to orange, blue, pink, green, and even black.
