Losing Weight For the Wedding

Losing weight for the wedding doesn’t have to be a harrowing experience. You have enough to worry about, with all of the wedding planning that you have to do. The last thing you need is to stress out over figuring out how you should go about losing weight for the wedding.

But that is, of course, easier said than done, isn’t it? After all, if you have a lot of weight to lose, and your ability to fit into your wedding outfit or making sure your wedding ring is sized correctly, depends upon you successfully achieving your goal of weight loss for the wedding, then this can place a lot of undue stress on you.

Relax. Planning a wedding should be a fun and exciting experience, not one that causes you stress and anxiety. Weight loss for the wedding shouldn’t have to be a stressful experience either. Rather than panicking and going into a frenzy, burning yourself out at the gym and going on a starvation crash diet, you should enjoy the process of watching the pounds come off.

Focus on the positive benefits of weight loss for the wedding: You will soon be united with your loved one in holy matrimony. You want to be physically attractive for your partner, not only on your wedding night, and on your honeymoon, but for the rest of your lives together.

Don’t focus on the negative aspects of losing weight for the wedding like, “what if I don’t fit into my outfit?” or “what if the ring is too lose or too tight?” or “what if my in-laws don’t like the way I look?” or “what if my fiancee is turned off by my body?”

Planning The Wedding Ceremony

The ceremony is a public proclamation or marriage between two people. It usually involves the exchange of wedding vows and the symbolic presentation of gifts to each other in the form of rings.

Though it seems to get the least attention of the lavish affair, it is the most important hour or two of ANY setting; whether it is a small, intimate, medium, large, or extravagant wedding!

Here are a few important elements that you need to remember, or at least have some of them involved in your ceremony.

1. Location – Contrary to beliefs or tradition, the ceremony does not have to be performed in a house of worship. There are outdoor locations and other sites that can make the ceremony both spiritual and memorable.

2. Wedding Programs – Wedding programs may be customized to compliment the color scheme of the wedding location and the theme.

Keep the theme or color scheme in mind when planning the wedding ceremony.

3. Ceremony Decorations – No matter where you decide to have your ceremony, there must be some form of decoration to fit the theme of your wedding and the color scheme. Be sure to make it within reach of your budget or else you will run the risk of under-budgeting another important aspect of the wedding. Some typical decorations include floral arrangements, which can cost a pretty penny! You may choose to go for candles, balloons and bows to reduce the spending on decor.

A simple method to remember the extent of which the location should be decorated is to remember that decorations should be placed at the entry way, along the aisle pews or chairs and at the altar.

4. Aisle Runner – The purpose of the aisle runner in a lightened sense is to make the bride feel like royalty on her special day. However, the practical use is to protect the precious white or ivory wedding gown hem and train from dragging through the dust, dirt and grassy areas.

While the most popular color for runners is white, you may choose to use a color that complements the color scheme and theme.

Some Methods You Can Use To Put Flowers on the Wedding

An excellent method that you can use to coordinate the wedding cake with the overall theme of your wedding is to deck it with flowers.

Here are a number of easy yet effective methods that you can use to suitable place flowers on your wedding cake.

a) Flower topper: This process basically entails either yourself or a hired florist arranging some flowers into groups, these flowers are typically of the same colour and type that you would find on the bridal bouquet. This method is incredibly easy for you to take advantage of, your only task would be to arrange them into little groups which you can do using a plastic base.

b) Rose sandwich: this is basically when you place a rose between the tiers of each cake. The cake for the wedding is typically build on thin pillars and then tiered with a gap that measures around 1 ¼ of an inch between each tier. You or your florist can then use this space to place roses which have been taped and cut to around 2 inches in length. One thing that you should be sure of is that the roses are packed tightly and are lushly laid with the wedding cake so that gaps are not showing.

c) Flower trail: this is essentially a flowing line made up of flowers that trails down the wedding cake. This particular method is most ideal for cakes that are specific tiered on top of one another. To begin, you must wire each flower head individually. Then group a few of these heads together, then secure and tape the top of the by, by pushing the wire stems which have been taped gently into the cake. Then you can begin to work your way down the cake pushing the heads of flowers in. In order to create some kind of strong band, you should consider placing the heads of the flowers closer together.

d) Linked flower toppers: if there is a gap present between the tiers of your wedding cake and an arrangement of flowers on each tier, then it’s very easy for you to link each of them together. Simply take a couple of stems of steel grass, and then use that in order to link the floral arrangements together.

One thing that you shouldn’t forget is that both foliages and flowers are not suitable for you to use on your wedding cake as they can contain poisons. Ivy being a good example, if you are unsure, then it’s best you consult a florist or the cake designer
