5 Non-Traditional Wedding Dress Ideas For Brides Who Don’t Want To Wear White

“Mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, listen. On my wedding, I’m going to wear… wait for it… pink.”

It wouldn’t be surprising to see your whole family, including your dog, glaring at you for saying this. Tradition suggests (enforces, rather) that every bride must wear white on her wedding day. When asked why, people will instinctively say, “white symbolizes purity of the soul.” But history explains that it is Queen Victoria who should be blamed for starting the whole white wedding dress bandwagon. In 1840, the queen wore a momentous white wedding gown. The wedding pictures were widely published and being a trendsetter during her reign, many other brides opted for white too. The norm has stuck ever since.

Most brides choose to follow, while some brides refuse to let tradition dictate their wedding fashion. If you have a solid style statement, here are some ways you can use a non-traditional wedding dress without taking away the “bridal” feel.

8 Things You Need on Your Wedding Registry

One of most fun things about planning a wedding is registering for your gifts. The wedding registry process is exciting and fun, because it brings up conversations about your future home and life together. However, with all of the excitement can come a lot of confusion.

Walk into any store to register, and it quickly becomes overwhelming. There are no shortage of things to add to your registry, and it often times brings up larger questions between you and your future spouse.

While it’s impossible to predict everything you will want and need once you start your married life together, here are eight often forgotten things to add to your registry. You might not think you need these, but our experience says they are essentials to add!

 

  1. Crock Pot

The crock pot is the single most used appliance in our household. Prior to getting married, this amazing tool is not often used, and thus not necessarily added to the list. Crock pots do well when cooking a lot of food, and when single this isn’t something you do often.

A crock pot works like this. In essence, you can put pretty much anything in at the start of the day, turn it on low and forget about it for 8 hours, and come back to an amazing meal. Frozen chicken? Throw it in. A cheap pork shoulder? It’ll be amazing after 8 hours of slow cooking.

Not only will a slow cooker work amazing for a busy lifestyle, but you’ll have a lot of leftovers. Crock pot recipes are simple, easy to make, and don’t cost much. A true win/win.

 

  1. Serving Platter

Getting dishware is typically a priority for newlyweds, but often times a serving platter is the first thing to get eliminated. It seems very unimportant in the grand scheme of things. Its easy to add it to the list of things “we’ll get later.”

Well, one of the first things most married couples love to do is host other couples. It might not be something you did as much when you were dating, but it is the thing to do when you’re married. And, having a nice serving platter is a go-to for every dinner party. Don’t leave this off the list – you’ll be wanting one within months of getting married if you do.

 

  1. Multiple sets of nice sheets

Getting one nice set of sheets is a no brainer, but multiple sets? Yes. It will make your life so much easier. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck pulling the sheets off the bed, getting the laundry done, and remaking the bed all in one day. While not impossible, it won’t be long before you miss the mark on that.

Two sets of sheets means you can change the bed and not have to stress about getting everything done same day. Chances are, your schedule is going to get busier with marriage, not slower. You’ll appreciate having the time to get that laundry done.

 

  1. Spice Rack

Inevitably, you’ll probably start cooking some recipes that are more advanced than ramen and macaroni and cheese. If you haven’t already started cooking together, it’s a wonderful way to connect with your spouse and enjoy each other’s company. And, there are a set of staple spices you’ll need for the majority of meals you make.

No need to go out and buy all of the exotic spices, like saffron and turmeric. A simple spice rack with the essentials will allow you to cook the majority of the recipes you find, without having to make an emergency store run.

 

  1. Salad Spinner

When single, a salad spinner seemed like a bit of a luxury. Why doe one need dry lettuce leaves to have a decent salad?

Salads make the perfect compliment to so many meals, and a good salad spinner is worth its weight in gold. Doing the same actions by hand takes some time. And you’ll get a lot of mileage out of a salad spinner.

 

  1. Stick Vacuum

Big, upright vacuums with all of the bells and whistles are expensive, bulky, and heavy. Chances are, when you are first getting married, you’ll be living in an apartment, condo, or small home. You don’t need a huge vacuum, and instead could benefit from a stick vacuum.

A stick vacuum is lightweight and portable. Many are cordless, with batteries that last 20-40 minutes, more than enough time to cover your new living quarters. Today’s stick vacuum’s have plenty of suction power, and will do a great job on your carpet, hardwood floors, and upholstery. And, you’ll save a bunch of money by not going after the expensive upright vacuums.

 

  1. Pyrex dishes

Pyrex dishes range from glass cookware to food storage containers. Having a good assortment of these pyrex dishes will serve you really well.

You’ll be amazed at how valuable it will be to have several pyrex dish pans of several sizes. Some of the common and popular sizes are 9×13 and 10×15, for example. You can cook casserole’s and vegetables in the oven, or bake brownies or cake. Having several of these will serve you well.

You can also store food in pyrex storage containers. Yes, you can always buy some of the plastic versions instead, but having a set of glass storage containers is much better.

 

  1. Food Processor

A food processor is a luxury, but it is a very functional luxury. A food process helps you blend, grind, chop, dice, or puree pretty much anything you want. Unlike having to chop all of it by hand, you can stick everything whole into the food processor, press a button, and stand back.

Food processor’s are a life saver when you’re throwing a dinner party, or making food in bulk. Dicing several onions is now only a matter of peeling the onions and throwing them in the processor, whereas prior that process could take 10-15 minutes.

There are some many things you can add to your wedding registry. You’ll learn more and more about eachother, and what you need, as the years go by. In the meantime, hopefully you’ll see the value in a few of these wedding registry essentials.

Unfortunately, it’s easy for couples to mess up their wedding décor with the wrong choice of wedding colors. Here are eight ways you’re making wedding color mistakes and some ways to avoid them.

Listen and understand your partner

The art of listening

More often than not, couples face the perils of communication blunders these days. Surrounded by devices, we rely too much on connectivity to get through and keep in touch with our beloved ones. The truth is that, however useful, digital communication can inevitably lead to detachment and despair: flat batteries, signal flaws, miscarried messages, mobile phones left behind, etc. These examples are as frequent as irritating and may put the stability of your relationship at risk. That’s why, you must always remain personal and encourage opportunities for face-to-face conversation so that the one you love feels understood and cared for.

Seizing all chances

It is essential to establish positive bonds with the people we love through different means. Some may prefer to hold hands and simply wander round a park, while others could choose eating out and having endless conversations over dinner.

Either on the phone, sitting side by side while driving, peacefully strolling on the beach or even walking your dog, simple occasions may open up a whole realm of communication lapses from which you and your partner will easily profit. Mutual understanding will pave the way for the pursuit of projects. Goals will be set in a state of common grounds that will entice how each person feels and increase his / her motivation.

Understanding yourself

We must give it more important to seek to understand ourselves, rather than to do it with our respective partners. In a relationship that we have with our partner it is better that we slow down for a while, and spend some time reflecting on our own needs and feelings

For you, in a way, to properly attune yourself to your needs and feelings, you should give more due attention to your bodily sensations. This allows you to identically identify what is happening to you internally so that you can express it openly to your partner. Anything however trivial or disturbing it may be worth mentioning, both you and your partner will benefit from it, and your partner will certainly thank you.

Understanding our partners requires a lot of patience on our part, requires that you do not express your opinion for an approximate range of time, without interrupting our partner, you have to be as if you are entirely in paused. You should give your partner all the attention that she or he deserves, do not interrupt him every moment to ask him or her some question that has begun to be formulated deep inside your mind while your partner has told you everything it needs to be told. It really costs a lot to dedicate to our significant other excessive attention, it requires a certain practice, yet it is extremely valuable, and you could consider it a kind of gift, a beautiful gift that you make to your partner: a gift that allows you to your partner be seen as they really are and for what they truly need.

Tackling criticism

It is never too late to start listening. Throughout long-term relationships, some people are constantly whining and will complain about everything related to their partner. This might shed light onto dissatisfaction or uneasiness for not being heard. When criticism sets its roots within two lovers, it is often hard to get over crisis and recover the fresher and simpler sensations of the old days. Needless to say, both the complained-about and the complainer suffer as the conflict becomes stronger.

We should be alert and keep in mind we must give a hearing to our partner showing that we respect his / her opinion and will endeavor to please them as much as we can. The exchange of personal points of view is nothing to fear, it can be nourished as a healthy habit so as to mutually collaborate and improve the quality of the relationship.

 

You have to pick the right time to talk to your partner

Sometimes you need to be listened to when you want to express something that troubles you. But maybe your partner can be busy with something else at the moment, such as: Watching the game, cooking dinner, trying to sleep, any work that you brought to your home, or simply not in the right frame of mind at that time. If you realize this, just be patient and shut up to tell your partner what you are worried about or at a later time. If it is something extremely important and you want to communicate it to your partner, you can ask: “Is there time available to be able to talk?” And depending on the response of your partner you can settle for the following two options. Talk about what is troubling you, or wait a reasonable time to do so. If you are the listener, no doubt your partner would appreciate the same.

 

The need to know your partner well

You must be observant and learn to know your partner in order to understand what you are trying to communicate. For this you need not only partially hear what your partner tells you, but develop a great listening ability for your partner. If what you do is usually just to hear, in reality what you are doing is worrying more about what happens inside you during the conversation, and what you are going to respond to. Instead, listening means caring about the person in front of you and trying to understand the situation that is happening. I assure you that developing the ability to listen is one of the best gifts you can give your partner.

The importance of showing empathy

It is important to give a sample of understanding to our partner, one has to get “deep inside the skin of the other” as it is said, doing this will be able to better understand the reasons behind our partner need to worry, what can really feel your partner, and the need to make your partner feel that we can take care of them and ourselves for that matter. It is not a question of wanting to take advantage of the weakness that our partner may feel, but to convey the message that one is able to put oneself in its place. So we will be generating in our partner empathy.

Avoid prejudging the message your partner is telling you

You should listen to what your partner wants to convey to you, without any interruption except for an important question or additional comment that has to do with the message you are letting him know. You should never interpret the message from “your” point of view, instead of the point of view that matters is that of your partner to let it know to you the message and therefore their point of view.

Don’t get carried away and don’t overreact

Either that which your partner is communicating is serious or you do not have to take into account how difficult it will doubtless have taken you to have gathered the courage to tell the message. You should be very clear about the perspective, that of your partner and yours; do not alter, you must be calm, you must let reason prevail over a fit of fury. You must speak in a softer tone, in a given case even loving and tender.

Mature Dating Online – Why Give It A Go?

Online dating for mature seniors can without question be intimidating. Using technology for dating is a concept that would be new to the older generation. A decade or two ago online dating didn’t exist and relationships would have started by meeting socially in school, through a friend or on a day out. But that’s no reason for seniors not to embrace this new, modernised, easy world of online dating. Whether you’ve ended up single as the result of divorce or the loss of your spouse or simply never found that perfect someone, you deserve companionship and happiness and the Internet makes it easier than ever to find these fulfilling things.

Mature Dating Sites – User Friendly

Mature dating sites are so simple and easy to navigate to adapt to the users they are targeting. These sites are aware that the needs of seniors are different to the younger generation. Most, if not all mature dating websites have taken this in to account and so have created databases and interfaces which allow the user to sign up, search and view profiles in seconds. It’s a stress free process just like it should be.

Reasonable Prices

A lot of mature dating sites include free of charge features within them, giving the user a chance to view the website before having to pay or sign up to anything they’re not comfortable with or not suited to. There are plenty of mature dating websites out there these days and these free features mean you can take your pick of your favourite before committing to a paid membership.

A lot of websites also offer different subscriptions such as a month, 3 month, 6 month or even a years membership so there’s something to suit everyone’s needs.

Specific, Unique and Personal

Some dating websites can be vague in terms of their target audience which makes it a painful task trying to find someone compatible to you. It can be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. You don’t want to be spending your valuable time looking through irrelevant user profiles or reading and deleting messages that you have no interest in. This becomes very tedious and demotivating, causing you to give up on online dating. But mature dating websites focus specifically on over 40’s. This narrows down the search results significantly and there are also plenty of other filters within most sites that allow you to narrow down your search even further.

You can also build your own unique profile on most online dating websites, resulting in even further compatible matches.

Safe and Respectful

The content on the majority of senior dating sites is respectful and mature and free from offensive images such as nudity. The purpose for senior dating sites is to provide support to its users in finding a genuine, long lasting relationship for whatever reason they’re seeking this for. The last thing you’d want as a user is to see explicit, vulgar content and these sites understand this. With this in mind you can sit back, relax and focus on finding like minded mature singles looking for the same thing as you.

On top of this, most sites also provide support through a customer services team which adds more peace of mind for the user.

5 Ways To Keep Your Marriage Solid After Having Kids

At first, having kids seems like a vital ingredient to achieving a stronger, better marriage. Many couples have unrealistic expectations as to what their life would be by the time a baby arrives. Kids are often looked at as the meat in a couple’s sandwich – the force that ties them together and binds them closer than ever before.

However, studies tell otherwise. According to a research of Berkley psychology professors Philip Cowan, Ph.D., and wife Carolyn Pape Cowan, Ph.D., 92% of their respondents, which are married couples, described a gradual increase in conflict after having their baby. Raging hormones, severe lack of sleep, limited time for talks or sex, struggles to make ends meet, and opposing views on “how to and not to raise a human being” – all these converge to forge a gap between you and your partner.

A leap into parenthood does test many couples but that does not mean this is the start of a dull, bland, and brittle marriage. There are ways to nurture your marital life despite having children,

Should we get married

Should we get married? 5 Ways to Know

Whether you’re engaged to be married or you’re thinking of taking your relationship to the next step, you might find yourself wondering “How do I know if this person is the one and how can I know the marriage will last?” Marriage is a big commitment, and even couples who have known each other for many years can still end up getting divorced. So before you rush about organising wedding invitations and looking at venues, here are some questions to ask yourself before you say “I do”.

Do you have doubts?

It sounds obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many people say they had doubts before getting married. It’s normal to have some nerves about tying the knot but if you have major doubts about that person, then it’s probably best to back out now before it’s too late. It doesn’t matter how many people have RSVP’d to the wedding or bought plane tickets – if you’re having a panic attack about marrying the wrong person then call it off. If there are problems before the marriage, it’s not going to change afterwards.

Are you just doing it for the Big Day?

It’s easy to caught up in the excitement of planning a wedding. Many women dream of wearing a big white dress and walking down the aisle. However, it’s easy to lose sight of the actual reason why you’re having a wedding, which is the union of two people who love each other. The question to ask yourself is, “Would I still marry this man if we had no money and it was just a quiet ceremony with just the two of us?” If the answer is yes, then go ahead. However, if you’re just doing it because you’ve always wanted a lavish wedding day and a designer dress then perhaps it’s time to give things a rethink.

Are you compatible?

Physical attraction and love may be there, but you have to ask yourself: are we compatible in the long term? It’s important to think about whether you’re compatible in all aspects of your relationship. For example, are you compatible sexually? Do you have similar values or interests? For instance, my mother always told me that she had very little in common with my father. She loves the beach and is a complete sun worshipper, but he hated the sun and wouldn’t go near a beach. He was focused on money and material possessions, she wasn’t. He was messy, she was extremely tidy. All the red flags were there, but she went ahead with marriage because he proposed and all her friends were getting married. Not surprisingly, they ended up divorced. You don’t have to have exactly the same hobbies, but you do need to have the same values and provide a balance for each other.

Can you communicate well?

All couples have disagreements sometimes and it’s completely normal to argue, but it’s more about how you communicate that matters. If you’re a well-suited match then you should be able to communicate with each other and resolve disagreements by listening to each other and talking things through. If you constantly fear talking to your partner about a particular topic because you fear their reaction, then you’re not communicating at all. And if you find yourselves criticising each other without listening and trying to understand, this is a warning sign that perhaps you are not meant to make it all the way to the altar.

Are you teammates?

The best married couples are ones who see each other as teammates. Marriage is more than just loving each other, it’s about knowing you’ll be able to get through anything – both good times and bad. There are going to be times in your life where things are difficult, so you’ll need to know that you can both work together. Often you’ll hear people say that they married their best friend, and that’s really what you should be. You shouldn’t be in opposition to each other – instead you should work in harmony alongside each other.

Benefits Of Being A Single Guy In A Big City

You are single at the moment, and whatever the reason is, you shouldn’t feel bummed because of it. Yes, you had a long-term relationship that ended badly, maybe you never had a meaningful relationship at all, or you just don’t like making a commitment. Either way, there are plenty of reasons to be happy about when you’re on your own. In case you are lucky enough to live in a big city, you really don’t have a good reason to feel bad ’cause you’re single. This also means you are free to do whatever you like. Below are some benefits of being single, and you should be well aware of them.

Sovereignty

Yes, you have your freedom and independence. That is maybe the most valuable thing you have while single, so make sure to enjoy it as much as you can. This period of time can be used to learn about yourself. Don’t be afraid to be alone with your thoughts. Seize the opportunity to grow as a person and try to enjoy the loneliness and stillness.

Introspection

As mentioned above, being single will allow you to spend some quality time with yourself. Don’t hesitate and engage yourself in self-discovery. The best way to start this journey is to practice introspection. This technique can be very helpful and will most certainly improve your well-being.

You can travel as much as you like

Of course, keep your travels within your budget, but besides that, you don’t have any boundaries. Pack the essentials and go to the airport. Pick a random flight or visit an exotic country in Asia. You can go wherever you want, and the best thing is that you can stay as long as your budget allows you. Nobody is waiting for you, so go ahead and travel the world.

Don’t need to explain your moves

Being single is great since you don’t have to think about excuses and explanations. Everything you do is because you wanted to do it, and there is nobody who can question that. This means you can leave your home and get back at any time you find appropriate. Enjoy this possibility since it will disappear the moment you meet Mrs. Right.

Explore your sexuality

In case you had few long-term relationships in the past, you really didn’t have a chance to test your sexuality. Being single allows you to fly to Thailand and get the world’s best massage, or visit an exciting legal brothel Sydney has to offer. It is up to you. You can have as many one night stands as you wish, and you may try abstinence if you like. There are some benefits of that kind of behavior as well.

You will avoid jealous scenes

Your eyes are free to roam at last. Being single is a great time to look around and enjoy the surrounding beauty. You don’t need to fix eyes on your significant other and improve peripheral vision. Rest those eye muscles by setting them wherever you like. Just make sure to be subtle.

You make the house rules

You can leave the dishes in the sink for as long as you want. You don’t have to declutter or take out the garbage. Throw your clothes all over the place if you feel like it. But seriously, you will be able to make your own rules and avoid compromises. Of course, keep your house clean enough to avoid diseases.

Choose your company

Having a girlfriend may lead you toward some cool people, but there will also be some of them you can’t stand. Not being a couple is a great thing because you don’t have to spend time with other couples. Those evenings can be very boring and strained, so enjoy your regular guys night-out as long as you can.

More money for you

Being single will allow you to spend money on games, trips, alcohol, just name it. You won’t be forced to save for the car, the house, or to leave something aside for her best friend’s wedding. All you earn can be spent however you please. Get yourself some gaming consoles, widescreen TVs or some mind-blowing gadgets.

Final thoughts

There are so many benefits for a single guy that haven’t been mentioned above, and it is your assignment to find them. Enjoy your freedom without any drawbacks until you find the right person to be your partner. This single period might be long, so give your best to live it to the fullest. Travel, meet new people, learn new skills, or just play computer games. It’s up to you. Just make sure to stay positive and optimistic.

8 Extraordinary Color Combinations For Your Dream Wedding

Coral, teal, and purple – these are just three of the all-time favorite wedding colors. Some blend them with tried and tested partners, like coral and gray, teal and baby pink, and purple and apple green. These are classic wedding colors and combos that have held up over time and yes, brides continue to love ’em.

But why stick to the safe and most used fusions when there are endless color combo possibilities to recognize? Perhaps you haven’t tried mixing and matching emerald and melon with a hint of metallic gold.

If you want to have a unique wedding motif yet you’re running out of ideas, here are some of the rare wedding color combinations to take inspiration from.

1. Purple + Burgundy + Orange

Perfect for: Autumn wedding, vineyard wedding themes

Opting for a fall-inspired wedding? Orange is a no-brainer but you can create a rich intoxicating blend to set the autumnal tone by adding purple and burgundy. The deep, moody details are also perfect for the old-world charm of vineyard weddings.

Aside from incorporating the deep colors into the fabrics, flowers, favors, invitations, and other wedding elements, try to experiment with food. For instance, consider serving creamy tomato soup atop beautiful satin burgundy tablecloth or table runner. You can also place a mix of orange, plum, grapes, and apples on the table.

2. Aqua + Deep Pink + Gold

Perfect for: Summer weddings

Perhaps you have seen the aqua-pink combo before – the fun and feminine color combo that makes you think of unicorns, cotton candies, and everything sweet. But when the preppy colors are styled with metallic and glitzy elements, like gold ribbons, draping, light fixtures, and table centerpieces and dinnerware, the vibe can be elevated into a glam affair.

3. Mint + Coral 

Perfect for: Late-spring, summer wedding

If you want the similar fresh and fun vibe but you want to steer clear of vivid colors, then the mint and coral combination might appeal to you.

For a more elegant and sophisticated setting, play more with mint. Think of mint clothing, invitations, and table setting decors. Then, let the lush floral arrangements and even the sugar blooms on your cake display pops of coral. You can also incorporate coral through small details like your favors or the ribbons.

If you want to go for a laidback chic vibe, choose coral as your lead with mint as your undertone. To elevate it into a more luxe look, infuse metallics like gold, silver, copper, or rose gold.

4. Merlot + Peach + Sage

Perfect for: Rustic and shabby chic wedding themes

Going for an earthy theme without sacrificing elegance? You’ll love this color scheme as it binds perfectly with natural hues and wooden details. Analogous colors go well together, which is why rich merlot and soft peach look cohesive. Having sage as an accent color balances them out and adds freshness into the mix. Sage can easily be incorporated by playing with florals.

The color combo has a down to earth vibe, which is perfect for garden and woodland weddings. Just make sure you balance out natural surroundings with some grandiose elements like chandeliers, candelabras, and elegant dinnerware.

5. Tangerine Tango + Orange + Yellow

Perfect for: Modern summer wedding, beach wedding

Orange symbolizes optimism while yellow symbolizes happiness. The vibrant mix is perfect for cheery, flamboyant couples who want to add a bit of fun into a solemn ceremony. The combo is also perfect for a seaside wedding as the warm tones complement the ocean’s bright turquoise hue. The best tip: let the flowers do the talking.

You just have to balance them out with white and neutral details so your guests won’t be overwhelmed by the vivid colors. Let your vases filled with vibrant fresh flowers and bright table decors sit on a white tablecloth.

6. Navy + Eggplant + Gold

Perfect for: Art deco weddings

Navy and eggplant are colors that scream “majesty” and adding metallic accent hues such as gold or copper make everything just better. The ethereal combo is perfect for grandiose wedding ceremonies, like a Gatsby-themed party adorned with gold chandeliers and dinnerware, and silk eggplant tablecloth, and filled with bubbly champagne and live jazz music.

7. Marsala + Midnight Blue + Silver

Perfect for: Fall and winter weddings

If you’ve always been drawn to berry-kissed, cranberry-esque shades, then the fusion of these bold colors is to die for. The pops of rich colors against the winter’s cold and pale surroundings display a lively contrast. For a more elegant look, you can infuse metallics, like silver accents.

The combo is full of lovely possibilities. They work on white tables and wood tables as well. Since a few varieties come in blue, play around with marsala for your flowers and use midnight blue for the vase and table decors. You can also experiment with food. Apart from red wine, consider offering vibrant cocktails for your signature sip. You can also use fruits with rich hues, like grapes, blueberries, and cranberries.

8. Emerald + Melon

Perfect for: Spring and summer weddings

The emerald-melon combo is an unexpected fusion I can’t help drooling over. Emerald is a rich shade of green that is inspired from the gemstone itself while the color melon is a soft shade of pink that provides depth and balance to the boldness of the jewel tone. The two colors work perfectly together.

These colors can create either a big and elegant statement or a rather low-key and effortless chic vibe. It depends on what tone you’ll emphasize and what should serve as the undertone.

If you’re into a more luxurious setting, then play more with the emerald with the melon undertone. Apart from using it heavily for fabrics, incorporate it into the smallest of details including the bold patterns in your invitations, the linen of your cake table, or the wrap of your bouquet. Try adding melon-colored flowers and apricot deserts to subtly infuse melon.

If you’re going for a chic, low-key setting, let melon dominate the environment and infuse emerald here and there, in your garlands and floral arrangements, aisle decorations, and party favors.
