Color is a major point of attraction for the opposite sex, and each shade has different abilities. Various studies of color psychology, and color therapy indicate that, the colors you wear actually affect how others perceive your attractiveness.

You say the word wedding and all people can imagine in their mind is the bride, her dress, her needs, her shopping list and her perplexity and we totally forget that there is also a groom in the wedding, is it even possible that a wedding can be done without a groom ? I guess everyone knows the answer. It is impossible. We can’t blame people for their perception, it’s all a show off game and the more you show the more people would see.

As it is said that there are no uninteresting things, only uninterested people [so don’t be sad, after all we women do most of the things just to impress our guys]. I am not saying that people are not interested in you; it’s just that they are a little bit less interested in you in comparison of your bride. You really need to work on that if you want to gain some more attention.

Last time we met, I shared that how you guys can look more impressive on your wedding, we talked about the dresses. Today’s topic is the additional part of the last discussion. Of course You can’t go in your wedding with just dress on, you have to have take care of other things like footwear, watch and other stuff [you don’t want to feel awkward in front of your bride’s sisters and her friends in  tradition Joota Chupai with a bad choice in footwear]. To make sure that you don’t have to face any Oh Crap Moments on your wedding, it’s all my pleasure to help more and more all the handsome and dashing grooms who have decided to kill their freedom and commit suicide [ just kidding guys ,doing wedding is nothing like that]. Below are some things that also inevitable part for your good and complete groom’s look.

Dupatta for sherwani – You are not under any obligation or pressure that you have to have a dupatta with your sherwani but if you don’t, it would be like you are all set and ready to go in your wedding but you have forgot to comb your hair [so incomplete look, especially if you are wearing a sherwani or kurta payzama]. So please all the grooms don’t take any chances with your look , I mean if you can shop for the other stuffs , you also can find a matching dupatta with your sherwani.

Turbanon this one I have to say that yes you are under pressure and obligation of the fashion sense [ no one would kill you if you don’t but their eyes can do a lot more than just kill you ]. If you are dressing up in traditional dress turban comes in the list of must carry, because if you don’t it would be like a marriage without vows [just a metaphor to prove my point] and if you have decided to carry one please make sure you carry a amazing one [one with beautiful pearl or diamond broach].

Jewellery - one line I always used to say and still say is Do It Right Or Don’t Do IT At All , if have decided to getting married and obviously you have to do shopping , even if you are not in to shopping then why not just enjoy it and give your best for that one day that comes once in a life time [ now don’t even think that , in new millennium who satisfied with one, that back to back marriage thing is only for celebs ] , so for that one day , you should look like a complete man and who says that jewelry is a thing for women now go and buy some good light jewellery matching with your outfit , so your look can be completed.

Mozari-  I read it somewhere that If your hair is done properly and you’re wearing good shoes, you can get away with anything and I was so impresses with this statement it describes that you can spend all your money on your dress and look but if you don’t have one good pair of footwear that can complement the dress and your look , it’s all in vain. With traditional groom like sherwani and kurta payzama , mozari is the perfect fill and I don’t think that I need to tell that in a wedding how much important part a pair of mozari plays.

Complementary items – if a bride is incomplete without bangles and jewelry then a groom is also incomplete without a good wallet, a perfect and smart wrist watch and handkerchief. If it’s your first wedding [just joking] , you have no idea how much important these things are. You are about to getting married you will understand eventually what I am saying but don’t forget to buy these stuffs as this might be a blunder for life time.

Since we have started this all , a funny thought came to me , the quote of an American poet Robert Lee Frost “It's a funny thing that when a man hasn't anything on earth to worry about, he goes off and gets married.” Funny, right? it’s all just for fun, don’t take it seriously, go in your wedding with complete look, be confident and more over this be a man yaar , you are going to be fine , you will do just fine and have you forgotten that your beautiful bride is waiting for you [ I guess last dialogue has just fasten up your heart beats , I can understand that totally], best wishes for your future.

Interesting Article to Discuss

Hi all!

I got married two years ago so I haven't been very active in the community lately, but I saw this article and thought it might be interesting to discuss.

"Huge Engagement Rings Show the World You're More Likely to Divorce

Huge Engagement Rings Show the World You"re More Likely to Divorce

Don't be fooled by a diamond as big as the Ritz: Scientists say that enormous engagement rings are not a predictor of a flawless, Pinterest-perfect life together. If anything, a rock that cost as much as a European vacation is a predictor for divorce. Try not to cluck ominously the next time someone thrusts a couple of carats under your nose."

The rest is here: http://jezebel.com/huge-engagement-rings-show-the-world-youre-more-likely-1643820961

What does everyone think?

Need dress opinions, please!

Hi WPers!

Need an unbiased opinion. One of these dress is one I already bought and the other is one I'm thinking of switching to. Which looks better? FYI for either dress, I am getting more in shape for the big day and will be wearing Spanx as well. :o)

Thanks in advance!

MARRIED

The dear hubby & I got married on a very rainy, chilly March 16 in Fort Mill, SC. Though rain was the last thing I wanted to happen on my wedding day, it was still beautiful and almost everything I could have hoped for. We paid for about 2/3 of the wedding ourselves, the rest came from my mom and his parents.

Refresher on my previous posts here, here, and here.

Wedding stuffCollapse )

Thanks so much one and all for the all the advice I received! Truly was a great help!

Include or not include?

I am sending out invitations for our wedding at the end of this month. We are registered at Target. When we registered, they have us little slips that say we are registered there to include in our invitations. I just read on Pinterest that you are never to include registry info in your invitations.

So do I or don't I?

Thanks!

Ignore my mum or suck it up?

I'm a little torn about what I'm supposed to do in this situation, so I come asking for help.

Now, my mum's always been horrible and controlling and a little evil sometimes.
She's demanding we (bride & groom) sit at the groom's table because "it's tradition" - i.e. I now belong to his family (puhlease)!
We really don't want to do this, because we want to be with our friends. I don't want to sit there with his family while they're chit chatting in a completely foreign language.
Honestly, groom's parents could not care less where we sat. I should also mention we're not having a bridal party, so that makes it a little harder to argue.
At the end of the day, my mom "wants face" (i'm not sure if that's a thing that non-Chinese people say?), even though she goes on an on about how the wedding is not about her, so that's why she's only inviting like 20 of her friends, instead of more. (BTW, we're only having about 80 people all up there...so I'd say 20 is a huge chunk of that number!)

Anyway, should I just suck it up and sit with the groom's family (apparently I won't have time to sit and eat anyway, because I'll be too busy talking with people...but that's so not happening - i want my food)....or should I just ignore her and sit us with our friends and feel her wrath later? I mean, what's the worst that can happen? She kicks me out of home? Oh wait, I'll be leaving anyway.

Stainless steel wedding bands/sets?

Has anyone ever used stainless steel wedding bands/sets instead of more 'traditional' metals?

I'm HARD on my hands, being disabled. It's nothing for me to have chipped/cracked/rough nails, cuts, scratches, etc. (Right now, I have 5 marks on my right hand, 1 mark and 2 sore nails on the left hand) I would HATE for my ering to get broken or bent because of my hands.

FH says he's totally willing to trade in my current ering (a marquise solitaire in 10K white gold) for a setting in stainless steel, but he doesn't want to go and have us do this if the stainless steel doesn't hold up like the 10k gold is.

On one side, I love how the tighter fitting dresses look (va-va voom!) but they are uncomfortable to move around in and dancing would not be easy. The A-line/ball gown made of english net is so light and comfortable and romantic - but I can't help but think it doesn't look as good. My family is completely unhelpful so I am asking here for opinions. Or am I just over-thinking something that should be straight forward, haha.

Which type of gown to buy?Collapse )

This looks like a great community and I look forward to being a part of it!

Save the Dates

We're falling a bit behind in terms of wedding planning and it's looking like sending out Save-the-Dates isn't really going to work. I'm not really upset about it, they were always kind of an optional thing to me anyway, but my fiance thinks it might matter. I'm also in favor of not wasting money on something I don't care much about AND not having to rush to do something that doesn't matter to me at the expense of time to work on things that do matter.

I think the best option is to actually pick up a phone and talk to people. All our friends are aware of the date anyway, but we could check in with those we don't talk to as often to remind them. Our parents can help with similarly reminding family we're not in touch with as often. I think as long as our wedding website is done so there's a place to point people to for more information, the phone call is just as good as a card in the mail.

Thoughts?

Well that was awkward

Hello all! I don't post very often here, but after attending a recent wedding, I had to at least put my thoughts down.

The wedding was beautiful, the food was top notch, and I had a really great time... except during the social hour. My husband was Best Man and he was off getting his picture taken with the rest of the bridal party during that time. No biggie! I am, after all, an adult who fully understands the wedding-day agenda. So I get to the reception hall and I get in line for hors d'oeuvres. I chatted with some people around me about the ceremony and the weather and everything was fine. Until I went to find my seat. Seats were assigned, and I went to the table with the name cards but could not find my name. I scanned it about half a dozen times before I realized that no, my name would not magically appear if I tried to find it hard enough. So I started walking around. There were some people still milling around, but nearly the entire hall had found their seats when I realized that the head table had one more plate than was in the party. I casually walked over and lo and behold my name card was there. Since I didn't know anyone at the wedding except the bride and groom, I'm nearly 100% positive that she seated me there to be by my husband at dinner. But this created a really awkward effect: If I had sat at the head table before the bridal party arrived, I would have stuck out like a sore thumb. So I couldn't sit down without feeling EXTREMELY self-conscious and therefore anxious (things that I struggle with continuously and go to therapy for; I mean, just thinking about sitting by myself at the table gave me anxiety). I also was the only person in the hall who never sat down once during the social hour. I chatted with people in line just fine, but I think a lot of that was because we were forced to be near each other. As soon as they had what they went up for, they went back to their table. Since the seating was assigned, I couldn't sit in someone else's seat to try to make small talk either. I was in limbo for an hour and a half and it kinda sucked. =/

I don't think there is ever going to be a perfect solution to seating the bridal party's significant others, and I really do think the bride was trying to be thoughtful of me, but damn it was a rough reception.

Vendor warning!

I haven't posted here since I got married, but I remember how useful this community was for vendor recommendations, so I wanted to post my sister's horror story in case any other brides-to-be were considering this vendor.

She purchased bridesmaid dresses from RenzRags on etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/RenzRags). They arrived three months before the wedding. Five needed minor alterations; one was the COMPLETELY wrong dress. They offered to remake the dress, so she sent back the wrong one. One month before her wedding, she started consistently checking in with them, and each time they brushed her off and told her they were working on it. We began to worry and started searching for back-up dresses. My sister left a bad review on their etsy shop. They asked if she would take it down, and she said she would if they got the dress to her in time.

TWO DAYS before the wedding, they emailed her and said the dress was finished, but it was too late to ship it. That's it. No other helpful suggestions. Since they were located 3 hours away, my sister asked if they would drive it up. They refused. She asked if they would meet us halfway, but that was also met with refusal. Finally, they said she could come pick it up herself from a husband of one of the shop employees, who would be marginally closer to her. Out of options at that point, my sister had to drive 2.5 hours the MORNING of her wedding rehearsal to pick up that dress, only to find out that it was the WRONG DRESS - the one we had sent back in the first place!

The husband tried to get ahold of the shop for another hour while she waited, but they didn't respond. Since she had to make it back to the rehearsal, she grabbed the wrong dress (because at least it was in the correct color) and drove back 2.5 hours.

They finally got back to her later in the day and said they couldn't find the correct dress anywhere in their shop. How do you finish a dress the day before and then completely lose it? They said they wouldn't charge her for the wrong dress, but that's way too little and way too late. I am furious at how much stress they caused my little sister, who should've been relaxing the day before her wedding, not super stressed out and driving (pointlessly) around for 5 hours. So please, if you don't want to worry about missing bridesmaid dresses, don't order from RenzRags!

selling your dress

When I bought my dress, I always knew that I would sell it. It cost a lot of money, and it's not going to do any good sitting in my closet, so why not?

I've been married for 8 months now, and I've been meaning to post it up for sale...but I just...now I'm not so sure. I've grown attached to it.

The logical part of me is saying just shutup and sell it. I have no intentions of having children at this point, and even if I do, I wouldn't want to pass my dress on to my daughter. I wouldn't have wanted to wear my mother's dress if she hadn't lost it when our house flooded when I was 14 (at which point she regretted not selling it). My mother didn't want to wear her mother's dress. So saving it for a potential future daughter is just not a thing for me.

So my question is, if you sold your dress, do you have any regrets about it?

Also, where is the best place (read: where will I get the most money :P) to sell it?

I Found a Dress

My best friend was up visiting from Texas (I live in NY) and since her boyfriend is planning on proposing soon, we decided it would be fun to try on a few dresses. I was also tipped off that there was a bridal shop closing at the end of the month and having a "Going Out of Business" sale. We decided to check it out. A few hours later I walked out with this...

I Said Yes to the DressCollapse )

The best part, because of some minor flaws, it was only $99. I do want to add some color to it, but for the price I couldn't pass it up.

Alterations Shop Suggestions Welcome!

Long time, no post!

I am the matron of honor in my best friend's wedding in July. I just recently moved to Columbus, OH (like, 7 weeks ago) and I'm having a hard time finding an alterations shop to take in the bust of my dress. (I got it at David's Bridal, and I do NOT trust them to do this, as they couldn't even give me the right sizes to try on!)

I've seen a couple places with reviews online, but not very many, and I'm sure there are more out there. I asked if my hair salon if they had any businesses they reciprocated referrals with but no dice. Any WPers have any personal experience? Thanks!

May. 1st, 2014

Can any of you recommend a good site for me to make my wedding website?  Something simple and easy, please.

Thanks very much!

Edit:  Not required, but bonus points if it's free or one-time payment. :)

Re-introduction

Hey! I actually posted a couple of years ago, thinking my guy was going to propose in the near future. Well, it finally happened on New Years' Eve. Now that we've worked out our budget, I'm ready to get down to real planning and thought I should come back here and maybe get some help!

Anything else you'd like to tell us?: It's going to be an interesting family blend. Neither side has met each other yet. His father was a United Church minister for many many years, his family all goes to church, and neither of his parents have so much as tasted alcohol. No one in my family goes to church and the last family wedding we were all at together was marked by a hangover brunch (including parents) the next day. My parents are also divorced (dad is remarried, mom is engaged), so my biggest concern is the blending of all the different groups.

Most-Forgotten Things

Hi WPers!

I'm currently about eight months out and trying to finalize my already-insane schedule up until the wedding day. I was hoping you could chime in and give me some things you may have forgotten or things that you think it will be easy to forget, so I can make sure I have them covered.

Thanks in advance! :o)

4 days to go!

The big day is on Saturday. And this week is HECTIC. I've never been the most organised of people, I have no idea why I thought planning a wedding would be a good idea. I'll get through it though!

The nerves have seriously kicked in! I constantly feel like I'm one small disaster away from a panic attack. Or some sort of cardiac episode.

Last week I developed an eye infection. Which is nothing new for me. And it turned into a huge cyst on my eyelid. Which again is nothing new, but they don't go away on their own for me. I have to have them surgically removed. So I'm stressing about make up that will help conceal it. Add that to the rest of the of the stress and ive broken out in excema. On my face. Yaaaaay.

Other than my underskirt being too short (fixed now) and being unable to do anything other than walk in a straight line in my dress (hook being attached tomorrow) my outfit is great! I cant wait for FH to see me in my dress.

I have a blackboard to make (yes make!!) And table decorations to sort out into boxes for each table. Then I need to finalise playlists. Then drop it all off at the venue on Friday. Which might be a bit complicated since there's a wedding on that day too. But thats pretty much it! I've been having nightmares for months that I'll be running round the morning of the day realising I've forgotten to get really important things like rings or a dress.

Wish me luck!
I hope your wedding plans are going smoothly!

Bridal Shower Registry?

Hi WPers!

So my FH and I don’t have a traditional registry – we have one set up at Honeyfund for our honeymoon. However, my bridesmaids are throwing me a shower and I have no idea what to do about that! It’d be super awkward for everyone to just show up with money, but then again I don’t really need a lot of household things. We don’t have a house yet, and our apartment really has everything it needs.

What I really would like is just some things to bring/wear on our honeymoon, etc. I really need some lingerie but that’s weird to me to open in front of a lot of people.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Apr. 11th, 2014

Hey folks!

Aside from my intro post, I've never really made an actual post on here but I have a serious etiquette question.

Two days ago, I resigned from my job...which I wasn't planning on doing until after our wedding. We're about two months away and invitations will be going out in a week or so. My question is...I sent STDs to several coworkers, who are obviously now former coworkers. I didn't leave under pleasant circumstances and truthfully, I don't want any reminders of the job, so do I still need to invite them? I know you're supposed to follow up on STDs with invitations but I'm just wondering if this would be considered an exception.

Thanks in advance!

Engagement Photos!

Hi WPers!

Just a reminder, I'm Jen. Haven't been posting much here, but I'm an avid reader! Here are the couple posts I've made that are most relevant, probably:

Introduction
Progress Post #1

I'll probably do another progress post 200 days out or so, but not too much has changed! I did get my dress but it's a little small at the moment sooo I'll post a pic whenever it fits (hopefully sometime this summer)!

Josh (FH) and I had our engagement photos done over the weekend. The full album is here, but I thought I'd share a few with you guys here too. :o)



More after the cut! Warning: image heavy.Collapse )

Sorry for the bajillion pics, I just love them so much. Thanks for reading/viewing! :o)

Mar. 24th, 2014

My husband and I got married in September, and one of our guests is getting married in two weeks. He lives about 100 miles away from us, so he traveled to our wedding and spent quite a bit of money on our gifts. He is a lot more well off than we are. After spending the money to travel to his wedding, we won't have very much money to spend on his gift - probably less than half what he spent on us. I'm feeling really uncomfortable about it. I'm starting to feel like we should have declined the invitation and spent the gas money on a better gift, even though I know that being there is more important, and if the roles were reversed, I would have cared way more about his presence than about what kind of gift he got us. Should I be collecting all the pennies from the couch and scraping together everything I can to try to get a better gift, or should I just not worry about it? If he hadn't spent so much on us, I wouldn't be worrying about it at all. I just feel like he set the standard and we need to meet it. :/

Hi girls, I'm getting married in May this year, and I'm fighting against the time to plan my wedding. I've been lucky in finding a location, some friend's house, which helped us a lot in saving money! We have a very tight budget, but nothing that will stop us to create the most magical moment of our lives.
I am very superstitious and for sure I won't be sharing the design of my dress, which I found at SnowyBridal.com, and I hope it is not a scam, I can't believe the price of my dress!! But I'd like to share with my husband-to-be the decoration things I've found today when I went to look for some ideas with a friend. Is it going to bring us bad luck for our marriage if I do so? I really would love his eye and input on some of the decoration.

Wedding Pictures!

After our wedding on November 9, 2013 I did a quick little post with a few guest based photos taken on our wedding day.  Our photographer (who is also my brother) recently posted a bunch of pictures on his website for us to share with the world.  Of course I have about 800 other pictures to go through before I figure out what I want to share, but this link will take you to the photos of our amazing wedding day!

Recap:  Whistler Canada wedding.  94 guests.  Goal was to create a warm and cozy kind of feel to our wedding day, and we were successful.  Our ceremony was right in front of a huge roaring fireplace (our celebrant had to ask us to move forward as her "buns were burning".  Our ceremony space was snug, but it made it so everyone could be closer to us.  It rained.  Yeah....wasn't thrilled with that.  But we made do with big umbrellas.  They ended up making it so we got some great photos!

Anyway, if you are interested, click on the link below!  I promise it won't take up much of your time  :)

Like most brides, I do have some regrets about having a few shots that our photographer didn't get.  But I'm doing my best to focus on all the other really good ones instead!

Enjoy!

MOH Woes / Am I Being a Jerk?

Hi WPers! I’m having an issue with one of my Maids of Honor (I have two because I have two best friends and they live on different sides of the country, so the one I’m having the issue with is one I expected to help me with a lot of the in-town stuff, and she agreed) and I was wondering how you all would handle it.

Bridezilla, y/n?Collapse )

Any advice or smacks back to reality would be greatly appreciated. ♥ Thanks in advance.
There've been a couple of weddings where I've not been invited as a +1 to a wedding where my partner was (quite good) friends with one or both of the couple. Mind you, we've been in a relationship since 2009 and engaged since July 2012. I found it really rude that I wasn't invited. Would it now be rude if I said no to inviting a +1 to those friends? It feels a little childish, but sometimes...I just want to immature.

+1 Ettiquite?

Hello everyone. Just a quick recap, Im getting married in October of this year. We have a lot of things already set- our venue, my dress, photographer, food and cupcakes :) But still have a lot to do.. Mainly we havent set our guest list yet. Im having a bit of a dilemma when it comes to adding +1s. There are a few of my friends that are dating people that I cant stand, and others that are single but might not know that many people at the wedding, and others who are in committed relationships with people Ive never met. How are you guys handling these scenarios? Also.. for those of you who are sending out save-the-dates, are you sending them to everyone or just the people that will have to travel for the wedding? Thanks everyone!

Progress Post and Guest Drama

With 82 days until our wedding, we are a little behind, but we are confident we'll get everything done. I still have to find a florist, as I was going back and forth for the longest time on whether or not I wanted flowers, but I couldn't think up a good alternative. I was originally going to get them from our local supermarket, but our cake designer is rather finicky and I don't know how well that would go over with him. For the amount of money we've put into the cake, the last thing I want to do is upset him.

We are still looking for our rehearsal dinner location, which hit a few snags when his mom kept adding people to the guest list. We got emails back from two places that look promising.

After having some issues with our hotel room block, we finally got that all settled.

His ring is in. Mine is still on its way. This is my ring.

We're in the last bit of addressing and assembling the invitations, and that is where I hit some drama.
