However, if you do have a tree, but a tree that does not make flowers, we have a dramatic idea for you: purchase some flowers from a floral market or florist and also some ribbons from a supermarket; after this, tie the ribbons from the branches of those trees you have in your backyard (the ribbons can reach the ground), and then, tie with care every flower to those ribbons. This is a great idea for the couples that don't have a floral garden and also don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on floral arrangements.

They need to buy 50 or 70 flower threads, which they will tie to some branches of their trees and they will be ready to wait for their guests. The image created by these hanging flowers is just great and is always preferred by romantic photographers. In fact, some of the ideas of how to decorate the backyard for a wedding may come even from the wedding photographer which the couple hires for this big event.

A backyard wedding ceremony can be just like any other ceremony, which is performed in a church. The difference is that instead of a ceiling, the guests will have the sky above their heads. For a wedding ceremony that takes place in the outdoors, the couple will need to have enough chairs, that will be beautifully decorated, just like the chairs in a church. Chairs should be placed in order to create an aisle, where the bride will walk on, taken towards her future husband by her father. Because there is no altar placed in a backyard by default, and also because you cannot bring the altar which is normally found in church to a backyard, you will have to improvise. A good solution is to create a wooden or metal structure, which has a rectangular shape and is enhanced by a lovely curtain. The officiant and his desk should be behind the curtain and when the groom enters the stage, the curtain should open, letting the groom take his position and wait for his bride. When the bride enters, all the guests that sit on their chairs should stand up, as a sign of respect.

A backyard can be enhanced by other decorations as well, such as balloons (which can be hung from the branches of the trees too), by a tent placed in the middle of the backyard, by big umbrellas (in case of rain), by beautiful backyard furniture and by many others. If you have celebrated your wedding in a backyard, you are free to share some backyard wedding ideas with us.

What are the activities that happen during the wedding day? What are the traditions which are supposed to be taken into consideration by the happy couple and their guests? What are the superstitions related to a wedding day? These questions and many others will be answered in this article, which you hope you will enjoy.

What is a wedding?

Contrarily to what most people know, the wedding is similar to the wedding ceremony, not to the wedding party, which takes place after the wedding ceremony. This happens because in most cultures and religions, it is much more important to be married in front of God, than to celebrate this holy union. Thus, every couple that wants to get married should have a religious ceremony; it does not matter what religion or where the ceremony will take place (in a church, on the beach, on top of a mountain, in the bride's house, at the hospital), as long as it is performed by a man of God and in the presence of some guests.

What are the wedding traditions and customs that should be taken into account at a wedding?

These vary greatly between cultures, religions, ethnic groups, countries, and social classes, but in most countries, wedding ceremonies involve an exchange of wedding vows, a beautiful presentation made by the officiant to the entire audience, related to what a family is all about, special music and loads of flowers. Depending on the religion of the bride and groom, the officiant and also the couple say specific words during the wedding ceremony, and also act in a specific manner.

A very popular tradition which can be encountered in the East and also in the West regards the color of the bride’s dress. The bride is supposed to wear white, but this is not imperative anymore. In the past, people believed that if a woman worn a dress of a different color, she was not pure anymore; this was a mistake and soon, brides started to use colored dresses as well. The color of the bride’s dress is not connected any longer to the bride’s purity.

The wedding rings have started to be used in religious wedding ceremonies in Europe and America, but it is not sure who exactly invented this modern tradition. It is clear that the Bible does not emphasize wearing wedding rings to show your marital status. In fact, it is known that until the early 20th century, men did not wear wedding bands, although they were married.

Couples that get married at the church believe that they can throw the wedding party on a different day, not on the same day when the wedding ceremony takes place, but according to what many clerics say, it is important to have a wedding reception after the ceremony, because some rituals must be performed there as well and these rituals have a strong power and significance only if they are performed after the religious rituals that occurred during the ceremony. These rituals that are characteristic to a wedding reception are: toasting the newlyweds, their first dance, the cutting of the cake and others, depending on the couple’s religion.

Although Ethiopia is well-known as a very poor country the population will surely stun you through their traditional dance, food and other specific stuff that you might consider using at the wedding. Given the fact that it’s pretty hard to plan a wedding by yourself, we recommend you hiring an experienced planner or firm who knows the market very well, otherwise things might get complicated. Stun your friends and guests by getting a wonderful location surrounded by mountains, forests or beaches.

The location must therefore match the surroundings very well so you can absorb the Ethiopian atmosphere wherever you are.

Furthermore, we would also recommend taking a ride around the capital of the country, Addis Abeba, and visiting a few lakes so you can make a clearer idea about this country and its people. Although the country doesn’t meet the sea it gives you the possibility to visit some of the most beautiful cascades and lakes in Africa. As you probably know, the majorities are Christians which means that you can consider joining unique rituals so you can get rid of the stress and not only.

Finally, we would like to add that opting for an outdoor wedding ceremony and party is the best way to meet the real Ethiopia. Usually, people prefer an outdoor exotic wedding over a hotel event simply because they can feel the unique atmosphere easier. On the other hand, we mention that if you can not make it for wedding you can plan your honeymoon in Ethiopia. But even in this case you might be forced to dig deeper in your pocket or sve some money previous to the special event.

Therefore, it is worth calling a photographer because he or she will help you have the best pictures of you two as couple.

Finally, we mention that the wedding party should take place on the beach. Why? Simply because your guests will also have the possibility to swim or cool themselves by getting in the water. It will be more fun if you manage to convince your friends drink champagne using a shell.

For those who want their wedding to be a real success we highly recommend improving the dance ability. The first wedding dance is one of the most important moments of the special event because this is the way you and your wife/husband get in the middle of the crowd. Your guests and closest friends cannot wait to see you making your first steps together and chant your names. Also, it is very important to adopt an elegant attitude so you can start the wedding as wanted. Another important detail you shouldn’t treat with superficiality is the first dance song.

Suggested Songs For Wedding First Dance (Source: weddinghouse.co.nz)

Here, we would like to give you some advice. First we will start with the kind of music you want to play for the first dance. If you think that your moves are very good then you should opt for a more sophisticated rhythm so you can show your best. But if your dance skills are not that good you should choose a 4/4 song because this allows you to give up pretentious moves. In this case, you should inform the DJ or the band about this, otherwise this special moment might turn into a unpleasant one.

What we also want to add here is that taking some dance lessons would help you a lot. Therefore, visit a specific studio because this will for no doubt improve your dance and moves. If you don’t want to go there, either, just ask a friend or family member to give you a help hand. Furthermore, the atmosphere created for the first wedding dace is very important because this gives the moment a touch of romance and joy. Given the fact that your guests will create a circle around you an elegant attitude is required, as well.

Suggested Songs For Wedding First Dance (Source: images.suite101.com)

Concerning the genre of the song, you may opt for rock’n’roll, though most of the couples refuse that, waltz and pop. As you probably know, most people opt for the second option, namely a waltz song, while others go with classic ones. There are dozens of songs that perfectly match the first wedding dance but we’ll only present you three. Celine Dion’s ‘Because You Loved Me’ is one of the most played songs at the wedding. In fact, Celine Dion herself remains one of the most played artists at such special events.

Another song that may delight you is Elvis Presley’s ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’. The romantic song features a slow rhythm and very touching words just perfect for a first dance. Finally, Joe Cocker’s ‘You Are So Beautiful’ has also become a very popular song especially thanks to a wonderful voice that makes you feel special. So, either you opt for a slow song or a faster one just make sure that your dance skills are very good.

For most couples exchanging anniversary gifts has become a habit. And they might not be inspired when buying a gift for their husband or wife. Luckily there are plenty of fun gift shops where you can shop and get some unique ideas. For instance if you know your husband loves to drink coffee and he drinks it more than two times a day then buy him a comical coffee mug shaped as a coffee bean or that has an interesting quote on it.

If he really likes your gift he can even take it to work and brag about it. Another idea would be to get your husband some clothing items if you know he loves to dress up and be elegant all the time. If he’s into fishing then buy him a new fishing rod or some comical rubber bait. You can have fun when purchasing these kinds of anniversary gifts and spice things up a bit. If you know your husband has been wanting a new phone for some time now you could get him a fake phone that has a special ring tone and so on.

If your wife is used to getting money from you so she can buy whatever she needs, this time you should do things differently. Instead of a credit card or bills you could give her a while piggy-bang filled with chocolate coins. This will surely make her laugh and even if she won’t be expecting such a gift from you she will appreciate your original ideas. Another idea would be to get her own personalized fragrance bottle. The bottle can be a simple one but the fragrance can be a truly unique scent. There are stores that allow you to pick your own perfume notes. So choose either floral notes or floral fruity ones and so on.
