How are the honeymoon nights supposed to be like? What does a bride have to do on her first night as a married woman? Are there any traditions that need to be taken care of, or she must follow whatever her heart tells her?
Probably the most important thing that a bride needs to consider is to wear a sexy lingerie. Although couples say that the first night (which usually happens on their honeymoon) was amazing, yours might not be that extraordinary, especially if you already had sexual relations with your partner. So to not make this first night just another night when you practice love with your partner, follow these rules that will make the first night one of the best of your entire life.

The first thing is to talk about how happy you are, now that you're married. Probably those couples that rush to have sex will say that they don't have the time to do this, that they will have an entire life to talk and now it is the time to move to action. But psychologists say that if you take things slowly, especially if you are tired after the whole buzz with planning the wedding and all, you will feel more comfortable while making love to your partner. So don't rush to have an intimate sexual experience; instead aim for a romantic adventure.

Maybe now is the time to read some books about sex. Don't be shy if you have never done this before and do not read them by yourself, but with your partner. There is no need to read this kind of books on your own, since the sexual activity is performed by a couple.
And to spice things up, don't have sex for several days before the wedding. This will make you anxious and ready for the big night.
Couples that choose diamond wedding bands must take into consideration several aspects.
1. Have the money for a diamond wedding band
Generally, diamond wedding bands are expensive, especially if they are placed on a platinum ring. And let's face it, you simply cannot combine diamonds with silver or gold, even though these metals are expensive as well. When it comes to diamonds, you need to combine them with only the best in terms of metals and the best metal ever created is platinum.
In some cases, the diamond used for the wedding band is cheaper than the band itself, if this is made from platinum, so you need to have the money for a diamond ring, before starting to search for a ring like this.
2. Pick a diamond wedding band that works with your engagement ring
You cannot place a diamond wedding band next to a nickel ring, no matter how beautiful that nickel ring is or how important it is to you.
In the situation in which your engagement ring is made from a not that valuable metal, at least place the engagement ring on your right hand and the wedding band on your left hand.
3. Make sure that the color of the wedding band can be matched with most of your outfits
Let's not forget that your wedding band is something that you will not remove, not even when you sleep, so this should be created to be easily combined with your outfits. Whether you go to the theater, to visit a friend in a hospital, or you go shopping or to work, you will wear the same diamond wedding band, so it should have a color that could match any casual and also elegant outfit.
4. Have a jewelry center near you, that offers cleaning services for your diamond wedding band
From time to time, you need to clean your diamond wedding band, just like you do with your computer, car, watch, smartphone, tablet or other products in your house.
If you have chosen a wedding band with lots of diamonds placed one to another, most likely there are loads of locations where dust could get accumulated. And because you don't want to end up having a bacteria or a virus brought by the dust in your ring, we strongly recommend you to visit once in a while a jewelry center, where your ring could get cleaned.
Many couples decide to have a wedding video, that will tell the story of their wedding for many years to come. A video like this usually starts with the preparation of the bride and groom for the wedding ceremony. As a rule, videography companies do not include the pre-ceremony activities in the wedding video, this is why if you want to be filmed while getting ready for the big event, you will have to pay extra.
Story Wedding Videos (Source: bridegroomphotos.com)
After the bride’s hair is done and after the groom is all dressed up, the videographers (because there are minimum two of them – one at the bride’s house and one at the groom's house) meet at the church, where the ceremony will take place. At this location, there are good chances for only one of them to remain and shoot the event or, if the couple prefers to have both of them, they will both remain and cover different areas of the church.
In some cases, videography companies have various videographers, specialized on shooting different videos, so the specialists sent by the company to capture on camera the pre-ceremony activities may not be specialized on shooting wedding ceremonies, so they may be replaced at the church with other videographers.
Story Wedding Videos (Source: 2.bp.blogspot.com)
The same thing could happen with those videographers that shoot the video at the ceremony; they could be replaced with other colleagues of theirs, that will shoot the wedding reception.
And this is normal to happen because some videographers are trained to shoot videos only in natural lightened environments, while others are trained to do this only when they have artificial light and they do not know what to do exactly in order to obtain the best images in natural light. And because no one wants at their wedding to have a videographer that only starts to learn how to use his/her equipment, the videography company usually divides their videographers into various categories like: videographers for the wedding ceremony, videographers for the wedding party, videographers for shooting the beginning of the video and others. And couples that desire a story wedding video will have to address more videographers, to be sure that the video will have an excellent quality.
Candles first, ladies and gentlemen. At the church, these ceremony decor settings are meant to left us speechless. You can get inspired by entering various websites where they sell wedding candles and create your candles by yourself or order some of the candles you see on those websites.
If you have always pictured getting married in a beautiful church, while you and your partner are surrounded by little lights coming from wedding candles, you can discuss this matter with the officiant and ask him if there is possible to bring some candles that you have in mind. Normally, the church is the one that offers all the decorations you need, but in case you want some more, you can bring them yourself, as long as the officiant agrees.
If we are talking about an outdoor wedding ceremony, an interesting idea for using wedding candles is to place them in a huge tree. In this case, you should use only candles made from glass or other material that is fireproof; you don't want to start a fire while getting married. So luminaries are out of the question. A good idea in this case would be to use some jars where you normally keep your jams; well, instead of putting a jam into those jars, you will place a little candle, that you can buy from any store that sells decorative objects.
Another great idea that can be used in the indoors and outdoors as well is to have a decor that can complement the setting of the wedding. This way, you can use suspended chandeliers, that play the role of the wedding candles. Why use the normal and regular candles, when you can be extraordinary? All you need to do is to incorporate the chandeliers into the decor of the church or of the wedding ceremony venue, so that all these arrangements to seem proper for such an event. The chandeliers can be suspended, by using a translucent pedestal, that will not interfere in any way with the rest of the decor.
A bride must do her best to ensure that her wedding is going to be a wonderful one and that everybody is going to admire this amazing event. It is important to choose all the aspects properly and to match them perfectly: the wedding theme, the decorations, your wedding outfit, the wedding flowers, the wedding favors and so on.

This will make the toast a lot more interesting than speaking about general things about marriage and happiness for instance. So try and make it personal. Of course it would be best to avoid any embarrassing stories that might put the bride and groom on the spot. These stories are not something that you should take advantage of, only of the bride and groom allows you talk about that certain topic, if not then it’s off limits.
Another common mistake that can influence your wedding speech is the serious note. No one likes to sit in their chairs and listen to a serious wedding toast. This is a happy occasion and you should use jokes and various comical tales to lighten up the mood and make the guests smile and enjoy your speech. Before writing your wedding speech try and look up some samples. Also try and be confident and relaxed if you want this to be a great toast.
When purchasing your wedding decorations and supply from any store you get to choose them by browsing some catalogs. This will help you figure out exactly what you are looking for. You need to base your choice on the color pallet of your wedding and of course the concept. For a winter theme choose some glass vase in which you can add some twigs painted with some gold or silver shades or some silk glitter flowers. You may also choose some cylinder vases in which you can add some colored globes.
Another idea would be to use mistletoe in some small containers. For a beach theme opt for some blue tones and shades and choose to use some shell shaped candles which can be used as your centerpieces. You could also opt for some white flowers or some balloons. Balloons are very inexpensive but they can be very festive. For a more elegant wedding theme opt for some big flower arrangements or some sophisticated candles ones. The candles can be pillar ones and they can also be used for the decoration of the church. You will have to buy some tulle or some lights and have the pews decorated as well.
If you want to personalize the centerpieces you can do that by engraving your initials on them or by using a picture. You can also use some antiwar looking picture frames along with some small colorful bouquets of flowers on the tables. This will be a great and simple centerpiece look. Pictures can also be hanged from the ceiling or you can glue them on the walls. You can do whatever you please since this is your big day and every detail needs to be chosen based on your preferences.
If you hired a wedding planner you could consult with a professional if not consult with your husband. You need to make a choice regarding the flower. The table setting and everything that is related to the wedding décor. You will want to remember this day up until the very last adornment and color.
