When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we're pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we're safe in our own paradise."
 -- Richard Bach
 "We recognize a soulmate by the supreme level of comfort and security we feel with that person. That doesn't mean that there aren't issues that remain to be ironed out. Rather, it means we know intuitively that we can resolve issues with our soul mate without losing his or her love and respect."
 -- Linda Brady

 "Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same." --
 Emily Brontë
 "A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes.

- Edgar Cayce
 "I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out." --
 Roy Croft
 "What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for life ... to strengthen each other ... to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories."
-- George Eliot
 "People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life."
-- Elizabeth Gilbert
 "Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable."
 -- Bruce Lee
 "A soulmate is the one person whose love is powerful enough to motivate you to meet your soul, to do the emotional work of self-discovery, of awakening." --

Top 10 Ridiculous Wedding Customs

Despite what the wedding planners say, many wedding customs are pretty stupid and pointless. Some ridiculous wedding customs are older, established traditions and others are newer trends, but none of them make much sense — especially for guys.
So, let’s get to them: Here are the top 10 most ridiculous wedding customs.

Number 10

Throwing stuff

Rice and confetti are two of the most popular materials that are flung around with reckless abandon at weddings. Is this really a good idea at aformal event, however? Do the newlyweds really need to be pelted with food and covered with silly string for the rest of the evening?

Number 9

Bachelor party the night before the wedding

This is another ridiculous wedding custom that doesn’t fare well on the practicality scale. Why would anyone want to get wasted the night before his wedding and spend the next day in a blurry daze? And most importantly: Why would a man want to face the wrath of his bridezilla while she yells at him for making frequent trips to throw up in the bathroom? Engage in the required drunken debauchery the weekend before and avoid said problems.

Number 8

Receiving line

Receptions usually feature the dreaded receiving line, which consists of every member of the wedding party (bride, groom, mothers, fathers, bridesmaids). In this ridiculous wedding custom, you’re required to greet and congratulate each and every one of them — even if you don’t know them. It goes without saying that this is an incredible waste of time for everyone involved; an informal approach and the directions to the bar would certainly suffice.

Number 7

Prolonged bachelor/bachelorette parties

More of a British wedding phenomenon, the exaggerated bachelor/bachelorette party is a ridiculous wedding custom and another good way to bankrupt your friends. Some soon-to-be-married couples in the UK insist on getting their rocks off in a week-long stag party in the Spanish resort of their choice, and the same idea is gaining popularity on this side of the pond. Whatever happened to just getting the groom really drunk and putting him on a Greyhound to Seattle?

Number 6

Baby ring bearers/flower girls

Do we really expect kids to behave themselves just because the adults are serious about the wedding? We’re talking about children under the age of 4 who usually end up kicking and screaming and having to be whisked off somewhere so the ceremony can continue. When people spend so much time and energy preparing the perfect wedding, it’s nonsensical for them to add the unpredictability of children into the mix.
Steer clear of these ridiculous wedding customs…

Number 5

Disposable cameras on the tables

This ridiculous wedding custom is another massive waste of money as the pictures taken by the disposable camera inevitably end up being very poor quality. Besides, who doesn’t have a digital camera and social-networking access? Pictures can be shared so easily nowadays that cardboard-box cameras are completely unnecessary.

Number 4

Sand ceremony

In this ridiculous wedding custom, the bride and groom each have a container of sand that they pour into an empty vase. Apparently, it symbolizes their unity or something like that — as if we need to be reminded yet again what marriage entails. It’s an alternative to the candle-lighting ceremony (which is equally as superfluous) and it just means more things to buy and another useless post-wedding keepsake.

Number 3

The Jack and Jill party

An alternative to the wedding shower, the Jack and Jill party forces your friends to pay for an unnecessarily extravagant party in the hopes of raising the money needed to throw an even more lavish wedding. Another equally stupid version of the J&J is combining the bride’s bachelorette party with the groom’s bachelor party, eliminating the need for two separate parties. In retrospect, however, this ridiculous wedding custom is just another fund-raiser and an additional obligation for your friends. It was obviously created so that the groom gets a bunch of free stuff too, instead of just the bride.

Number 2

Mashing cake in each other’s faces

The gesture of smearing cake in another’s face was probably quite funny when it happened by chance for the first time, but it’s become little more than a cliche that we could all do without. The intertwining-arms-to-sip-champagne thing is about the only tradition more revolting than this one.

Number 1

Clinking glasses

An established ridiculous wedding custom at far too many weddings, the clinking of glasses as a prompt for the newlyweds to kiss simply has to go. It’s not even that funny or cute the first couple of times, and at a wedding with 400 guests it gets downright annoying when the couple can’t even eat their dinner or have a conversation without hearing the annoying clamor of silver to glass.

saying “i do”…

At the end of the day, a lot of these ridiculous wedding customs are just shameless attempts to raise money for the new couple to have a lavish wedding experience. Many of them are also practiced simply for the sake of tradition — because “everyone’s doing it.” Sometimes, however, (especially when it comes to weddings) breaking tradition can feel pretty darn good.

6 Steps To Be a Great Guest at a Wedding

wedding guests

Wedding parties and receptions can be a fun time to interact with old friends and celebrate with relatives, but if you don’t know many people it can be socially uncomfortable. Even if you do know a good majority of wedding guests, there are some reception rules to follow for maximum – and appropriate – fun.


  1. 1
    Mix, mingle and move around. The best way to meet people and interact at weddings is to explore the different areas of the party to see where other like-minded people might be gathering. If you are rolling solo, see if there are any other singles mixing around the bar or mingling by the buffet, and strike up a conversation. Giving someone a compliment is always a great way to initiate a dialogue. Try, “I love your dress, that color looks great on you! I’m Stacey and I used to work with the bride. What’s your name?” And try to seal it with a handshake (if your hands aren’t full with food or drinks) to make it more personal. If you know several people at the wedding and spot some singles, make the grand gesture of going up to them and introducing yourself and possibly some others you know there.

  2. 2
    Reach out to relatives. Often, one of the most uncomfortable things about attending a family member’s wedding is seeing all the relatives you haven’t seen in years. Although it may be somewhat awkward, it’s important to make a point of interacting with your relatives. Sure, your great Aunt Helen won’t be able to stop talking about “how much you’ve grown,” but connecting with family members, especially ones from out of town is part of the wedding celebration. Be prepared to tell relatives what you’ve been up to in your personal and professional life and direct similar questions to them. Before your know it, you’ll feel like family again!

  3. 3
    Table talk. When seated at an assigned table, you should introduce yourself to everyone else at the table. The bride and groom put you at that table for a reason, so utilize the seating arrangement to get to know some of the other guests. Engage in conversation by finding out how the others know the bride and groom, where they are from and even their occupation. You could discover a love interest, new friend, or potential business contact.

  4. 4
    Give thanks. As a guest at a wedding, you should make a point to introduce yourself to the bride and grooms’ families and express your thanks. If you can site a specific element of the wedding that stands out in your mind as memorable, include that in your conversation. Try: “Hi Mr. and Mrs. Thompson. I’m Harry and I work with your daughter. She’s a beautiful bride. Thank you for a spectacular evening. The photo booth was a fun touch. Congratulations to you both.”

  5. 5
    Put a cork in it. Free booze at a wedding is always tempting, but limit yourself to a few drinks. You don’t need to get completely intoxicated to be social and gregarious. And you don’t want to be “that person” who is too drunk and making a scene. That doesn’t mean you can’t linger around the bar to meet and chat with others.

  6. 6
    Have fun. The point of a wedding party is to have fun and celebrate with the newlyweds. So, eat, dance, partake in group activities and enjoy talking to familiar and unfamiliar people.

11 ways to plan your wedding in 2014

A meaningful wedding requires planning and creative input from both partners and any family members and friends you've decided to include in the planning. Wedding planning can be a wonderful part of life but it can also be very challenging and stressful. Indeed, you can be assured that some plans won't go as you'd like them to, so plan for that eventuality too! The key is to stay organized, to stick to a budget and to give yourself plenty of time to achieve everything.

EditMethod 1 of 11: Budget, timeline and record-keeping

  1. 1
    Set a budget. It's important to stick to a budget and to keep your wishes realistic. While this is a very special day in your life, it's not an excuse to be wildly extravagant with money you don't have. Remind yourself when you feel like fretting that you still have many wonderful days ahead and you don't want these marred by paying back an unplanned overspend.
    • Aim to never exceed the amount specified as the total of your budget. If you overspend on one item, another item has to take a cut to meet the budget. Be prepared to be flexible and to prioritize the big spends that really matter. You can always make do or DIY on the things that are less important or even the frivolous but desired aspects.
    • If your parents or future in-laws are partially or wholly funding the wedding, you have an added help. However, remain conscious to not burden them either. Ask them for their budget ceiling and stick to it.
  2. 2
    Set the timeline for planning. Of all things about your planning, this is the most important aspect. Develop a sensible, reasonable timeline depending on how much time you've given yourselves. Begin with a calendar before you and try following a suggested timeline from a wedding guide. You will find such timelines in wedding guide books, magazines, online and even at the base of this article. In general, you're likely to find that most guides assume you have around 12 months to plan your wedding; if you've less time, simply adjust the timeline accordingly (the last three months matter the most anyway). (Timeline suggestions will be provided throughout this article.)
    • Don't panic if you don't have 12 months. Generally what planning guides suggest happens in the first few months are things that can be done fairly quickly, such as announcing your engagement, sending the announcement to local papers, purchasing planning books and software, planning the budget, selecting the bridal party and settling on a wedding date.
    • One of the principal reasons for a long lead-in time is the wedding and reception venues––the most popular ones are often booked out a year or more in advance and many people have taken to planning the wedding around venue availability. If this irks you or you just don't have a year, look around for great alternatives, from public garden spaces, to lesser known churches and town or meeting halls. Avoid the trap of thinking you have to use the venue every other bride is using this year!
  3. 3
    Choose a workable method for your record-keeping. You'll need to keep tabs of everything you've already decided and what's planned ahead. Also, invoices, quotes, receipts, seating plans, photos of desired decorations/clothing, patterns, instructions, etc. will need to be kept in one place, so have at least one large plastic pocket to keep these in one place. If you're more organized, use a few pockets to separate by categories.
    • Wedding software or planning apps can work well for digital planning. If you have tech-savvy friends helping plan the wedding, you might even consider making a wedding wiki open only to those of you helping with the planning. This can help enormously with shared planning and strategizing. On the downside, software and wikis need to be maintained through the inputting of information and scanning in documents, while a notebook can be taken anywhere and you can jot down things quickly and you can simply add the growing mound of papers to a binder. For many people, both digital and paper planning tools combined are the best of both worlds.

EditMethod 2 of 11: Size of the wedding, venues and setting the date

  1. 1
    Decide on the size of your wedding. Remember to talk this over with your fiance. A dream wedding for one may not be right for the other. You'll need to know how many people are going to attend for the purposes of venues, catering and invitations.
    • As part of this decision, choose your bridal party. How many bridesmaids and grooms do you want? From one to a dozen, the choice depends on what you have always dreamed of and what space you'll have available for everyone to stand in at the ceremony.
    • This decision is usually done at around the ten-months-to-go mark.
  2. 2
    Choose the venue. The sooner this is done, the better, so that you know you have the place you really want. Check out the spaces offered, the catering deals, the marriage fees, the ability to decorate a church or synagogue, wedding space, etc. Find out whether the prices quoted cover everything or whether you'll be expected to pay for extras.
    • Be aware that even church and synagogue venues may charge fees.
    • Research into venues for the wedding and reception usually starts around the 12 months-to-go mark, with bookings occurring within the month once you've made up your mind.
  3. 3
    Set the date. The factors in choosing a date include the availability of your venue, friends and family. Think about who you must have at your wedding, and try to set the date with their availability in mind. Most people will do their best to accommodate a wedding, so unless you know this person has major surgery or a competing wedding in their calendar, you should be fairly right with directing their calendar.
    • Send out "save the date" cards to your guests. Once the venue and guest lists are confirmed, let everyone know what's coming up. Send emails if you know people will read them, otherwise, send cards to their postal addresses.
    • Setting the date usually occurs at the same time you've confirmed the place of the wedding and the place of the reception. Finalization of the guest list should be done when there are about seven months to go. Do expect some cancellations and possibly some last-minute additions due to illness, pregnancy, overseas travel, etc. It often can't be helped, so go with the flow.

EditMethod 3 of 11: Wedding theme and the invitations

  1. 1
    Choose a theme. It doesn't have to be anything really specific, but a successful event tends to have a consistent feeling throughout. Choose a theme that is easy to plan and decorate. Everything should be consistent with the theme.
    • You can usually hire someone that will decorate your wedding, but it can be expensive to do so.
    • Visit the venue and take pictures of how the area looks. You may want to measure the dimensions of the room or area, to allow you to plan where you want everything go and to know if you have enough space.
    • As part of the theme, research the flowers you want at the wedding. Find out if they're available during the time of your wedding or if they're out of season (the costs of flying them in can be very high). Finalize flowers around four months ahead of the wedding date.
    • Match decorations to the color theme for best overall appearance.
  2. 2
    Send out the wedding invitations. Research into the design of your wedding invitations when you still have around 10 months to go, and work on purchasing or ordering their printing when there are about six months to go. Leave plenty of time if you're making your own and always have lots of spares, as making a mistake now and then in writing or making them is inevitable.
    • Be creative; you can make your own and add a personal touch or go to a professional.
    • Send out invitations around two months prior to the wedding; this should be sufficient time if you've already sounded out your guests and sent them "save the date" cards. (If Jewish, make sure to get kippots made.)
    • Make wedding programs. As with the invitations, you can you have your programs professionally printed or make your own. It’s not recommended that you print your programs much more than a week in advance in case there are any unexpected changes, such as changes in ushers or candle lighters. If possible, have your officiant proofread the ceremony portion of the program.

EditMethod 4 of 11: The wedding officiant

  1. 1
    Choose your officiant. For a faith-based wedding, you'll be looking for a pastor, priest, minister or rabbi. If they don't charge a fee outright to perform the ceremony, be courteous enough to pay a generous gratuity for their time. For a secular based wedding, choose a wedding officiant, judge or person with authority to marry people who is both available on the date and amenable to any particular special requests you have by way of vows and ceremony.
    • Attend pre-marital counseling. This may take a large time commitment, but it is often worth it in the long-run. Be honest about your desires and expectations for marriage. Both faith-based and secular-based counseling is available.
    • If on a 12 month timeline, this is usually begun when there are about eight months to go.

EditMethod 5 of 11: Wedding clothes and accessories

  1. 1
    Research, design and order your wedding dress. Around the mark of nine months to go, start researching your wedding dress ideas. Are you having one custom made, altering an heirloom dress or purchasing off-the-rack? Whichever way, you'll possibly need several fittings and adjustments to perfect it. Alternatively, make your own or steer clear of traditional wedding dresses and buy a dress that you simply love and know you can wear again after the wedding. You don't have to stick with tradition or spend a fortune on something you'll never use again.
    • Select a wedding veil if you're having one. And don't forget the shoes––from flip flops to diamond encrusted satin slippers, what's your preference and do they need special effort or will you buy them ready-made?
    • Decide on bridesmaid's dresses at the same time. Are you paying for them or will they pay? You have less say over their choices if they pay but they're more likely to be happy with choosing their own style within your color choice.
    • In some religions, it is traditional that the mother of both the groom, and bride comes to find the dress, as well as the maid of honor. This varies widely depending on where you live and what your faith is.
    • Get tuxes and groomsmen clothing sorted and ordered about four months prior to the wedding. Send tux measurement forms to groomsmen a month before fittings.
  2. 2
    Select the wedding rings. This is a fun task to do together, and symbolizes your devotion to each other. Most couples get matching rings to show that they complete one another's soul. If you're having rings specially made up, leave plenty of time and be prepared to get to learn more than you ever cared to know about gold and the origins of it (as in, whether or not it has been sourced equitably and so forth). Make the right decisions by doing your research.
    • Wedding ring selection should take place around five months before the wedding, with collection of the rings occurring about one month in advance of the date.

EditMethod 6 of 11: Photos, videos and music

  1. 1
    Find a photographer and/or a videographer. Consider using a professional for this special occasion, and make sure that this person is reliable so that you don't have to worry about him or her forgetting your wedding or stuffing up the photos or filming. There are just too many stories of relying on friends or family to photograph or film a wedding followed by years of regret about the fuzzy, out-of-focus shots or no footage at all because the photographer got carried away doing something else...
    • Ask for recommendations from friends who have married recently who they'd recommend.
    • Ask to see portfolios at the business premises. This will give you a good idea of their abilities and style.
  2. 2
    Hire your entertainment. Decide on whether you're going to have a quartet, orchestra, band or a DJ. Professional musicians will keep the flow of the event, make announcements, and plan all your special events with you. Each has its advantages and limitations depending on what you're seeking.
    • Music students at college/university level are definitely worth considering as they will be at the peak of their abilities and a lot cheaper than professional musicians, and many of them crave chances for a public performance.
    • This aspect should not be booked last, because all the good bands and wedding DJs get booked first! The entertainment is crucial and is what makes a wedding one to remember! It's recommended that you sort out this aspect of your wedding at least 10 months before the day.

EditMethod 7 of 11: Food and gifts

  1. 1
    Decide what type of food and refreshments you will offer at the reception dinner. Try to find a happy medium between what would please your guests and what you can afford. Weigh the pros and cons of hiring a professional caterer, as it's not cheap, but it's one less thing you'll have to handle personally. Some couples choose to base the menu on the culture of the family, or go for something that most people like, such as Italian or Asian fusion.
    • Some people favor having a candy buffet as part of a wedding; this allows those with a sweet tooth to consume delicious sweets whenever they feel like.
    • At the same time as deciding on catering, make reservations for any additional rental/hire equipment needed, such as marquees, chairs, tables, dinnerware and flatware, linens, arches, etc.
    • Focus on this when there are at least 6 months left to go.
  2. 2
    Pick a cake. Before settling on a cake it's best to have a tasting first. Also look into a cake that will match your theme, and please both the bride and groom. Sample cakes around eight months before the wedding and select the design at this time.
    • Check in on the baker again a few months prior to the wedding to be reassured that your order is still on the books and ready to go as planned.
    • It's best to have the cake delivered directly to the reception venue. Relying on a family member to do this places too much pressure on them and should it be dropped by anyone other than the responsible bakery, you have no recourse to a quick solution!
  3. 3
    Register for gifts when there are about 9 months to go until your wedding.This gives guests plenty of time to check your list and get the gifts.
    • Be realistic about gift pricing. Acknowledge the breadth of wealth by including very affordable through to more expensive items as part of the gift list. And also allow for non-gift list choices; some people really do not appreciate being forced to use one.

EditMethod 8 of 11: Transport options

  1. 1
    Choose suitable transportation. If you have multiple venues, plan how you will travel from the ceremony location to the reception location. Some couples may choose to rent a limousine or ride in a classic car. Others like horse-drawn carriages. If it's popular with other people, book early. If it's your own cars, book them in for cleaning and detail a week before the wedding.
    • If there will be alcohol at the reception, do you have a safe way for you and your bridal party to get home? You may want to ask a friend or relative to be a designated driver for the night.
    • In some families it is traditional to decorate the couple’s vehicle, so if you have a nice car, you may want to keep it at home in the garage!

EditMethod 9 of 11: Honeymoon suite and honeymoon, plus out-of-town guests

  1. 1
    Decide on whether to have a special wedding night room or to leave on honeymoon quickly. Many couples book a honeymoon suite the night of their wedding to begin the feeling of a honeymoon before leaving the town or city of the wedding, while others simply get going straight after the wedding. The choice is entirely your own.
  2. 2
    Ensure out-of-town guests have accommodation. You may need to reserve a block of rooms for guests that will be attending your wedding from interstate or overseas. Booking as a group will usually ensure they all get the best rate but this should be done well in advance of the wedding, at least four months in advance.
    • Make it clear whether you're footing the bill for guests or not. You can clarify that you've booked rooms at a special rate but expect them to cover the costs if need be. Be careful about expecting too much from far-traveled guests; they already have to fund their journey, so if you can reduce their accommodation costs, that's all the better.
  3. 3
    Research the honeymoon when there are about 6 months to go. This will let you take advantage of any special deals and good prices. Book as soon as possible but always build flexibility into the bookings in case of the need for cancellation; it is better to pay a little more and get most of your money back if something prevents the travel (such as illness, postponing the wedding, etc.) than to get back nothing.

EditMethod 10 of 11: Rehearsal

  1. 1
    Plan the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. This should be planned about five months before the wedding date, including booking the site for the rehearsal dinner. In addition, let those attending know early on that they're expected to be a part of rehearsals. These events are held within the week leading up to the wedding.
    • You may want to create a schedule for the bridal party for the day of the wedding, so that they know what time they need to be places for things such as hair appointments, photos, ceremony, etc.
    • Rehearsal dinners are a North American tradition that has begun to occur in other Anglo-speaking countries too. If you don't want to hold one, it's not essential.

    Develop a final three months countdown so that nothing is left to chance. The plan for these last three months needs to be tailored to your own needs but here are some basics to be considered when putting your plan together:
    • 3 months to go:
      • Finalize the vows; choose them and write if doing so
      • Buy or make wedding accessories, such as the ring bearer pillow, toasting glasses, favors, unity candle, guestbook, flower baskets, etc.
      • Book hair, nail and makeup appointments
      • Prepare the ceremony program but be prepared for last minute revisions
      • Plan the seating arrangements for the reception; again, plan for last minute revisions.
    • 2 months to go:
      • Mail the invitations
      • Schedule a wedding dress fitting, it might be your first or one of several
      • Apply for the marriage license (this may vary depending on your location, check local laws)
      • Attend showers, if any
      • Buy or make gifts for members of the bridal party
    • 1 month to go:
      • Finalize all plans for the wedding ceremony
      • Check that all bookings for hotels, transportation, venues, guest arrangements, etc. are as they should be
      • Pick up the wedding rings if you haven't already done so
      • Continue with dress fittings (many brides lose or perhaps even gain weight from stress, so final fittings should be as close to the time as possible, to ensure perfect fit)
    • 3 weeks to go:
      • Write up the place seating cards
      • Continue with any fittings
      • Check that you have relevant gifts for people
      • Chase up anyone who has not yet sent an RSVP to your invitations––you may prefer to have bridesmaids do this
    • 2 weeks to go:
      • Get the honeymoon packing done so that it's not worrying you
      • Have last alterations made to dress; it should be ready by now
      • Check all bills and make sure that all of your suppliers have been properly paid
      • Follow up any loose ends, especially anything that is worrying you
      • Have a hair trim
    • 1 week to go:
      • Aim to stay as relaxed as possible; you should have done most of it by now!
      • Collect your wedding dress if not done already, as well as any last accessories and shoes
      • Keep everything in one place, covered and away from pets, kids and nosy people
      • Enjoy your hen night (bachelorette party) or stag night (bachelor party)
      • Attend the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner
      • Go over your vows but don't obsess
      • Relax!
