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.
I always envisioned a super romantic proposal…I have had dreams about the beach, restaurant, airport, ski trip, office…and so on. I can’t even keep track anymore.

I once heard a preacher talking about some research they did, can't remember who it was exactly, he said they found out that 85% of marriages end up in divorce because of financial issues, I mean 85%, that means, it's not adultery, it's not in-laws, not mistresses or second wives, it's not even falling out of love that represents the biggest reason for divorce. With that statistic in mind, I would say it's very important to prepare for marriage financially.
Weddings are a time of joy and celebration of a union of two people and their families. With each family comes a diverse range of people, temperaments, style, and preferences. A bride has her work cut out for her when it comes to styling her bridal party bearing in mind the unique personality and body types of each individual in the party.
We all dream about the 2-week long honeymoons we'll have when we get married - making multiple stops along the way; watching sunsets on a beach; the joy of being far away from the ones who can interrupt our communion with our spouses… Then we wake up and realize that work and all the other hassles in life may only afford us 3 days, at the most. Who says you can't enjoy 3 amazing honeymoon days?
Beach chic doesn't necessarily mean sea shells in your hair and a sarong around your waist. Your can wear just about anything to the beach. Remember comfort is key so there are a few exceptions, heels are not practical, leave them at home, long dress trains are no no as they will quickly get dirty being dragged in the sand, and the whole princess ballroom gown thing? Keep it in ballrooms. Bearing this in mind, we've scoured the world (okay the web) for our top three beach looks.

Recently a dear friends wedding took me all the way to, Mahe Island, Seychelles, possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Five years ago, my heart was broken and I thought I could not go on. I was at my lowest point. It was so hard for me to be around people, It was so depressing and the fact that I couldn’t talk to anyone complicated things for me.
These days, with so many gorgeous fabrics available, in colours that span the spectrum, it's easier than ever to pick winning aso-ebi combinations for your dear friends and family. The term 'aso-ebi' directly translated means "relatives clothes" in Yoruba, and it is common place at weddings and other celebrations to have designated fabrics for a selected group. There are a couple of things that are vital to keep in mind when selecting your wedding aso-ebi
When you and your partner have an argument or one of you upsets the other, the simplest of remedies is often avoided. Why is that men would rather give in (silently) or sulk (again, silently) and hope that Time would 'heal' the situation? Why do women insist that they are right? (Well, that's because they usually are) Why does 'he' have to sleep on the couch if 'she' is really upset with him? - Since 'hell hath no fury greater than a woman scorned' men tend to comply. And why does 'Sorry' seem to be the hardest word to say to someone you love?
