Wed Tip: Groomsmen Rental Attire

Posted by on Sep 11, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Groomsmen should try to pick up their rentals two days before the wedding to allow time for any necessary last minute alternations. Try the tux on at the store and be sure that everything fits properly, including the shoes.  Don’t assume the shoes will fit to size as many rental shoes vary in their sizing and widths.  Comfortable, well fitting shoes are a must for the amount of hours you will be wearing them. If they feel snug, consider going up in width. Before leaving the store, check to see that nothing has been left behind including your  tie, cufflinks, shoes, and any other...

Wed Tip: Good Posture

Posted by on Sep 11, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

  Good posture is beneficial for every bride to look her best and reduce stress.  When your body is aligned properly there is less stress and tension on your muscles. Try walking in yourwedding heels and concentrate on your alignment. The higher your heels are the more you will want to use your core to scoop your muscles in, push your shoulders down, and  stretch your body up to its full height.  Carry your bridal bouquet at your hip allowing your shoulders to relax away from your ears and neck. Your natural tendency may be to hold your bouquet too high which can make you can look stiff and tense and holding it too low can lead to rolling your shoulders...

Wed Tip: Which Guests get what Perks

Posted by on Sep 11, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

When it comes to giving gifts, flowers, plus-ones and other perks to your wedding party, family and guests, it can be hard to remember all the right traditions and rules of etiquette. Here are some tips on planning the perks. Who gets a plus-one? The wedding etiquette on plus-ones is a bit tricky. Ultimately, it’s up to your discretion. If it’s within your budget to allow every guest to bring a date, then when you compile your guest list, you’ll have to assume that your head count will be twice that amount. Traditionally, everyone over the age of 16 is invited to bring a guest. When inviting a friend that has a boyfriend or girlfriend, address the outer envelope to one recipient’s house  and the inner envelope with the couples’ first names. If you’re on a tight budget, you have every right to simplify your guest list.  Consider having a light hearted conversation with any  of your single buddies that may not know that a ‘plus one’ invitation doesn’t mean that you MUST bring a date.  Let your friends know before the invitations arrive that they have an option to also attend your wedding solo, while still allowing them the option to choose.  All in all, many of your close friends may have more fun attending the reception stag, especially if they are friends with your other guests. Who gets corsages and boutonnieres? The tradition of giving corsages and boutonnieres to wedding party members has less to do with who carries them and more to do with an ancient Greek belief that flowers would ward off evil spirits. Nowadays, it’s simply a lovely accent to your wedding parties’ attire. There are no strict rules of etiquette that dictate which individuals should be given corsages and boutonnieres. With the exception of the bridesmaids, who generally carry a bouquet of fresh flowers, anyone who contributes to the Wedding Day or participates in your ceremony may be expecting to receive a corsage (such as your grandparents, godparents or extended family members).  As a rule of thumb, if you give one grandparent a corsage or boutonniere, you should give every grandparent and great-grandparent the same honor. In lieu of a boutonniere, the groom can provide a monogrammed pocket square in the color of the bridesmaids’ wedding dresses that can double as a ‘thank you’ gift to each of his groomsmen. The pocket square can also  add a ‘pop of color’ to the grooms’ side of the wedding party much like a boutonniere. In place of costly corsages, provide a single flower (which can cut your costs significantly) to those most near and dear to you, before your ceremony begins. Have a vase ready for them to place their flower in at the reception until they are ready to depart at the end of the...

Red Tip: What do you need to embrace?

Posted by on Sep 11, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

  This was by far one of the most compelling questions for me on my journey towards inspiring 1 million people world-wide.  At the time of this question, I was seeking love and inspiration.  I now realize that I needed to BE that which I SEEK.  When you start to truly embrace everything and everyone with greater purpose knowing that every situation, circumstance and event showed up precisely when it was supposed to, you will be able to be a creator of your life.  Today is a new day that will set you free if you let it.  Today I want you to release anything that has been holding you back.  See past resentments, difficult situations and circumstances as black smoke leaving your body as you exhale.  Then with every glorious breath today, replace it with white light symbolic to a new found energy that you are now ready to embrace....
