This Year? Next Year? Sometime in the Future..

Dear Mr. Sugar, My boyfriend and I (to my knowledge at least) want to get married to each other. We both are somewhat financially secure, so day to day living as a married couple shouldn't be much of a struggle. He says he wants to get married 'earliest next year December' mind you we had this conversation in March. I don't see what's going to change between now and December so I don't see why we should wait that long if nothing significant is changing between now and then and we both feel strongly about each other.

Mr and Mrs 'Head'

Hi Mr. Sugar, My boyfriend and I continually have this argument about who the 'head' of the family is. I don't think there's a 'head' per se; I feel that spouses should be partners who fulfill different roles in their relationship. With no one role being important than the next. Both parties should be able to go to each other for advice I don't like this idea of one person having the final say for the family. He on the other hand thinks this is all just 'feminist BS'. Are we heading for disaster?

Their elegant reception was held at the Yar Adua center in Abuja. Colours of the day were gold, silver, and white from the brides side and, fuschia and green from the grooms. With combined ancestries of Efik, Fulani, Igbo and Hausa from the couple, their celebration of love was truly a melting pot of cultures.

I can't wait to share this one, full wedding album coming soon.

Kemi & Uche

I love the feeling I get when I see or hear of a really good proposal or wedding. While some people go all out, proposing while they are sky diving or something equally 'exciting', sometimes it's the simplest things that turn your insides to butter.

Kemi and Uche's proposal below did just that for me...

Sugar! Tips on Perfume Selection

Voile de Jasmin (Bvlgari), Panthere eau Legere (Cartier), Sheer Veil (Vera Wang)

When choosing a fragrance for your wedding day, wear one of your favourites that your bride or groom especially likes -- this is no time for surprises!

If you're determined to wear something new, be sure to start using the perfume at least a month before the wedding so that you are certain it is a scent you'll both enjoy.

Just before you put on your veil, spray fragrance around yourself, and then spray the same fragrance on your veil to create a magical aura of scented pleasure. For an especially romantic effect, apply fragrance to the palms of your hands.
