When you think of a well planned wedding you have in mind that the rings are an extremely important item. In a standard classic wedding, the rings are always made of gold, as a symbol of success and welfare. But in modern days, this may not always be the case, because of various reasons.

The principal reason is probably the low budget that doesn’t allow you to afford all the luxuries in the world. Even though  you wanted something else, there are great options on the market that can allow you to make an acceptable compromise. Another factor may be choosing for an alternative metal wedding band because you are eco-friendly and you don’t want that, in the process of making your wedding bands, nature suffers (gold processing can be polluting). You may wish to choose an alternative wedding band because you are a nonconformist and you want your rings to be original. Whatever the reason might be, it is important that nowadays there are options for you to make a decent choice that doesn’t make you settle with less.

Ceramic wedding bands are light and very durable. Black ceramic rings are for those who don’t want to re-plat their rings too often.

Cobalt chrome is the metal used in medical implants; it has a white (whiter than platinum) color and is highly durable. Cobalt chrome wedding bands come as a response to a budget crises, for the grooms that wanted a replacement for platinum but couldn’t afford it.

Titanium wedding bands have the strength of steel and the weight of aluminum. So, you can expect that the rings are lightweight, weighting one third the weight of gold. It has a gray color, close to white, similar to the stainless steel color.

Tungsten rings are chosen because of their good looks and durability and they became the frequent choice of men.

Silver wedding bands are probably the most common alternative for gold wedding rings. Silver is whiter than platinum and white gold and it is the most affordable precious metal.

In other words, you don’t need to be preoccupied no more because there are viable alternative metals for wedding bands that are a good option for your very special day.

You are a bridesmaid. Obviously you feel an important person at the wedding of a close friend, but what you wear? On this question we will answer you as follows. Being a bridesmaid is very nice. You feel that friendship with the bride over the years has not gone unnoticed and you have a more defined role in the wedding, unlike the other guests. No job is too difficult if it gives you a feeling of well being.

Most brides do not have claims with respect to bridesmaids’ outfit. Without some general ideas, the question how do you dress is even bigger. Here are some beach wedding dress ideas for bridesmaids. It is a festive and elegant event, with a touch of royal glam and you have to keep with it. Even if you choose a classic dress or an avant garde dress, as a bridesmaid is important to fit you well. Remember that a dress that looks good on you is more effective than a weird model. Moreover, when you choose your dress you should not think what the other bridesmaids will wear, because it is not fashionable to be dressed all the same. So, you have total freedom of choice.

Light shades
We know from our mothers that a bridesmaid is not allowed to wear light shade dresses, but times have changes and traditions altered. Instead, you can wear a cream or white dress without any problems. If bride confirms it has no preferences in this area then you do not need to make problems. I suggest organza gowns in pastel shades of pink, beige, cream or white and for a ladylike look you can match an elegant hat of the same material.

The saving black
If you want to go for sure, the non-color black is the best option. A simple black dress made of a precious material can not fail and also it favors any silhouette. If you want to diversify a little, then choose a shade of silver and a satin material. These beach wedding dress ideas will give you that touch of glam, modern and a little bit of royal feeling. In my opinion, it is the “wow combination”.

Designer dress
As well you can opt for a custom made dress according to your own ideas. If you can not find anything that pleases you in the local designers’ collections then you can choose a model dress from international fashion houses. Ask a skilled tailor to reproduce it and you are done.

The fusions Claire creates between matte and shine, rich and clean, simple and sophisticated fabrics, lines and cuts are highly inspiring. Most of her models come in juxtaposed patterns that combine both the modern sensitiveness with vintage inspiration. This designer’s creations also look visually attractive because they are crafted from organic fabrics.

Innovative, opulent and luxurious, the wedding dresses Bellantuono creates are always a delight to experience. We recommend their creations to glamorous brides, especially to those who want something classier for their wedding. Nevertheless, the deep cuts and the asymmetrical unique details created for these gowns make us also think of the contemporary brides who prefer something purely modern and voguish. Either way, these pieces combine the best in everything.

While the silhouettes are classically feminine and romantic, the accents are dramatic and the cuts provocative. They add the necessary type of boldness any 2012 bride would want for her wedding. We are fans of the Bellantuono hallmark and we find their collections among the most flatteringly inspiring ones of Italy.

In general, Italian couture bridal brands feature elegance and exquisite designs, but the gown masterpieces produced and sold by this company are among the most luxurious and fashionable. We love everything about their creations and we wouldn’t chance a thing! They look flawless and easy to love. The bride who gets the opportunity to dress up in a Bellantuono wedding dress on her big day doesn’t even have to try too much to look unique, outstanding and marvelous.

The superb gowns you get to see here today are from the latest collection of wedding dresses created and released by Bellanutono for 2012 – the spring/summer line. If we are to make a succinct comparison between these and the previous gowns released for previous years and seasons, we would say that these ones are a bit more sensual and simplistic.

The soft clean lines and the fluid silhouettes make the bride look natural and feminine. The sleek fabrics add a luscious feel to the silhouettes and a glamorous look to the bride. Women who appreciate a Bellantuono wedding dress are those who already have found their own style – one that is elitist.

The bride who can fall in love with one of these pieces is the modern bride who has finally abandoned her feminist ideas and adopted a  personalized style. Bellantuono created this collection based on a fabulous fusion between the East and West elements. You can find lots of oriental details in this collection: peony and fan ornaments, Japanese floral art prints, obi sash belts or ancient kimonos.

After the wedding dress, it comes the wedding cake. This is in my opinion the hierarchy of the most important details of a wedding and I’m quite sure that all the women will agree with me. I am not saying that everything else does not matter, but we are the ones who are always preoccupied about the way in which a certain thing looks like.

So, today I will try to spoil the view of all the readers, by showing you some wedding cake models, which I must confess, I find really awesome.

The site called weddings.theknot.com features an impressive collection of wedding cake pictures, so whether you already have chosen the model of your wedding cake or you are now trying to find the perfect one, this site will delight your senses.

The first cake that got my attention is called “Cute as a button” and it is a four layered wedding cake. This black and white cake is trimmed with two ribbons on the first and the third layers and on the others it is decorated with some funny black dots. What is really great about it, is that it can be used both for an elegant ceremony and a more relaxed one, having elegant and also funny elements.

The cake called “Cascade of tulips” is a green fondant cake which has as accessories some colored sugar tulips, as the name suggests. It is really elegant and fancy and it will become the element of the night, if you will choose it. The cascade of flowers makes it perfect for a beach wedding, and also for a summer themed wedding. I consider this cake a true fantasy thanks to the powerful colors and the energy transmitted through out them.

For those who want a special design for their wedding cakes, the cake called “Gift boxes” is the perfect choice. Shaped as many gift boxes put aside, some of them unwrapped, this cake will be the sensation of your wedding. The marzipan and also the fondant covers are making the whole design possible and are also giving to the cake a very good taste. What can you desire more from your wedding cake?

And my last choice from the site is for those who believe in the quote: less is more. The cake “Simple sophistication” is a white three layered wedding cake, covered in butter cream and decorated with pink flowers. It is simple and delicate and it would fit perfectly every wedding style.

Because the site is full of many other great wedding cakes, I invite you to explore it and choose the best one for you!

Wedding cakes are the most important detail of a wedding. They look good, they taste delicious and they are the symbol of the first thing done together as a couple.

So, just like any other detail, it has to be chosen with the biggest attention in order not to disappoint the guests and also remember it with the biggest pleasure after the event.

But how do you choose the perfect wedding cake? How can you easily decide which model is the best for you and which flavor will be the one that will fit the chosen menu? First of all, you will have to think about the wedding’s theme. If you chose a certain theme as: fall wedding, beach wedding, Christmas themed wedding and so on, the cake will have to respect that certain theme.

For example, if you choose to follow the Christmas themed wedding, then your cake can “borrow” the red and the green colors. You can decide to embellish it with some small and funny decorations such as a sleigh, a small Santa Claus or some reindeers. Try to be as creative as you can, because you don’t get married every year, right?

Now if you want to choose the flavor of the cake you can do so by trying many bakeries and tasting many cake types. This is the only way to decide which one you like and also which one fits the best the menu. So, if you already have a favorite bakery, go there, and if you do not, search on the internet the ones which can be found in your area.

Another advice which I am going to give you about the wedding cake is to take care at the price. Don’t be fooled by huge prices and believe that if you are buying a more expensive one, the design and the taste will be better. And because this is not always a patter, the best thing that can be done is to try to taste first the cakes and go at all the bakeries which you already know. Trying something out is free so, why bother making assumptions?

You will also be able to order one if you find something which is on your taste, so if the internet is the last searching place, then I hope here you will find here everything you need.

So, I wish you to have a sweet wedding!

 A wedding is a reason of joy in every family on earth. No matter what religion they have the grooms will always be blessed by a priest or a minister. And in almost any religion candles play an important part in the wedding ceremony.From an orthodox point of view the wedding candles aren’t the unity candles. They have a more meaningful and religious part to play in the ceremony.

 In orthodoxy, after the proposal takes place the bride and groom have to decide on their spiritual parents, the godparents. The task is pretty hard and troublesome. The godparents have to be married themselves and have to be able to guide the grooms in such a way that they have a good and happy life together. The godparents have to buy the wedding candles too.

On the way to the ceremony the candles have to be carried by the bridesmaids and the groomsmen. One arrived at the church they are given to the godparents. In orthodoxy wedding candles represent mind purity when lit. They symbolize the faith the newlyweds should have through their marriage. At the end of the service, the grooms will take the candles from their godparents and hold them when they leave the church. At the reception the wedding candles should be put in a candle holder and let to burn out the entire wedding night. If the night ends and the wedding candles aren’t burned out, the custom says, the newlyweds are supposed to take them to the church where they married an give them to the priest. He will say a prayer and let them burn for the grooms to have a strong union for the rest of their lives.

Orthodox grooms respect a lot of religious customs. It is believed that the compliance to the traditional customs will bring fortune, happiness and wealth to the grooms. Not all orthodox wedding customs are serious but the ones regarding the church and the actual ceremony will be as serious as they can get.

Every wedding guest has the same dilemma : what to gift the newlyweds. Well if you’re smart you can let them pick up their gift.

 Through the ages couples who got married received as gifts things the guest thought they needed. With the invention of the wedding gift registry gifting the newlyweds got a lot easier. You simply read the list and decided what worked for you best. Depending on your budget you either bought the present yourself or put money together with some friends for a more expensive gift. But in the last few decades the institution on marriage became a less important and couples married after living together for a few years. With this in mind we can understand why the traditional coffeemaker lost its charm. These days couples prefer money as presents. They can either plan a honeymoon or, together with their savings, buy something they couldn’t buy before but dreamt of owning.

 How much cash you give depends entirely on you. Remember that you’re not expected to pay for a meal at a friends house so don’t think at the price the newlyweds gave per dinner plate. One good idea is to ask a close friend, who’s going to the same wedding, how much cash he will spend on his wedding gift or how much cash will he give as a wedding gift. This will give you a better picture on how much cash you should give too.

 A wedding should be about happiness and love. When attending a wedding try not to think too much at the wedding gift you are about to give. Anything you will give will be well received since the bride and groom are starting a new life. One of the best gifts you can give is simply by being there and congratulating them.

Giving a toast is something quite simple. You should not be nervous about. Try to stay compose and be yourself. Look online and find your inspiration. This will help you know what you want to say. Since these wedding toasts have become quite a tradition , there is no way you can’t escape your duty as a best man or bridesmaids. Be prepared and focus on your task. The beginning of the toast needs to be quite short. It should include a thank you note addressed to the guests and to all who helped planned and organized such an amazing wedding. The middle part of a speech is the most important one.

Here you can use your personal memories to talk about your relationship with the bride. You can tell stories form when you were little and what you used to think and say about marriage and love. This will entertain the guest and will bring back some memories for the bride as well. There are also some helpful quotations about love and marriage which you can use. This will give your speech a more formal tone. But you don’t have to go formal all the way. Use some jokes and speak about the groom as well.
