Ancient meaning to flowers

Flowers play a big role in many weddings, and couples can add beauty and ambiance to the event by using floral arrangements in various ways. Modern floral arrangements are stunning, and many couples might not know that herbs, spices and flowers have been used in weddings for centuries. Today, flowers are used to decorate wedding venues, impart sweet fragrances and complement formal attire, but in ancient times they were used differently. Flowers were used to bestow good luck on the couple and keep bad omens away. flowers Images: ivory bridesmaid dresses Modern brides and grooms may no longer see their wedding days as times for opportunistic evil spirits, but that doesn't mean couples cannot borrow from ancient traditions and incorporate flowers into their weddings in va...

Unicorn Adds Extra Magic to Virginia Wedding

Dreams do come true. Fairy tales are real. And Jody and Frank are here to prove it all. The Knot reports the newlyweds were married at a stunning estate in Manakin-Sabot, Virginia. As with most nuptials there was a bar stocked with specialty cocktails and a reception space decked out in whimsical decorations, but the couple didn’t stop there. Related: wedding dresses Their wedding was full of special touches like a cotton candy station, arial performers and, most importantly, a UNICORN PETTING STATION. At first it seemed like the special appearance was all a joke, with a stuffed animal standing in at the station for the first part of the reception. But then, the real VIP showed up: a beautiful pink-and-blue-maned unicorn. Ok, so maybe, the single golden horn w...

From a Wedding Writer’s Notebook, 10 Views on Love

When writing for the weddings pages of The New York Times — which I have done since 1992, at first on a weekly basis and now occasionally — the job is to walk into a room full of well-dressed strangers and collect the best descriptions you can find about love and marriage, mostly love. It isn’t easy. For one thing, people sense a stranger in their midst as acutely as a herd of gazelles might, and they tend to scatter, or stare from a distance in a menacing way.Over the years, I have filled many spiral notebooks with quotations. On the subject of love, clichés are hard to avoid. I have heard, “They/we are like two pieces of a puzzle,” or “It was fate/bashert/kismet/meant to be” thousands of times, or that’s how it feels anyway. Occasionally, though, people say something ...

THIS BRIDE-TO-BE MADE A WEDDING DRESS ENTIRELY OUT OF TACO BELL WRAPPERS

Although you may hit up your local Taco Bell for a simple bag of late-night Crunchwraps or to subject your digestive system to its latest viral stunt food, some people -- believe it or not -- go there to get married. In fact, one bride-to-be wants to get married at T-Bell so badly that she created a wedding dress entirely out of the chain's food wrappers. Really. Images: wedding dresses Diane Nguyen constructed the dress out of a staggering 200 Taco Bell wrappers as part of her bid to win Taco Bell's “Love and Tacos” contest with her fiancé, Nick Ward, according to a report by The Huffington Post. If the couple receives the most votes, they'll win an all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas to become the first people to get married at Taco Bell's massive flagship restaurant ...

The big fat Indian wedding

On a cool December day in 1965, 25 people assembled at Shyama Kulkarni’s parents’ house at Peddar Road in Bombay. The Vardes were hosting a lunch for the family following their daughter’s wedding the previous day, and precisely 25 plates of food were being readied. “There was no 26th person allowed,” remembered Kulkarni, a civic activist, 51 years later. “My father had said, I am not going to break any rules.” It was a few months after the India-Pakistan War and a year after prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri came to power, bringing with him exhortations of self-control and food rationing. The rules of the day forbade a host from serving more than 25 people at home. In any case, the national mood following the war was one of austerity and citizens like the Vardes...

Bride overcomes life-long stammer to say her beautiful wedding vows to her husband

A bride who overcame her stammer to read her vows on her wedding day is now teaching her baby daughter to talk. 29-year-old Jennifer Vaughan’s stammer was so bad that she struggled to even say her own name – and, because of this, feared she’d never find love. She’d never have dreamed that she’d be saying her own vows to her now-husband Ashley Vaughan, of whom she met in a house party in 2011. Bride overcomes life-long stammer to say her beautiful wedding vows to her husband Having worked extremely hard during her speech therapy lessons for five years, Jennifer spoke flawlessly on her big day, bringing 100 wedding guests to tears.

I’m A Bridesmaid-For-Hire And These Are The Weirdest Things I’ve Seen On The Job

I’ve been working as a bridesmaid-for-hire for over two years now, and the number one question I get — after people ask me why in the world a bride would ever hire a stranger to be her bridesmaid — is to list the weirdest things I’ve seen at weddings. I enter these weddings with quite a unique viewpoint. I am literally the stranger in the room, and the one thing to know about strangers is they oftentimes open up about their deepest, darkest secrets and problems to other strangers. I’ve heard it all, seen it all and done (almost) it all for brides. I’ve taken off my bra and given it to the mother of the bride, picked up animal poop with my bare hands because it was on the aisle and I didn’t want the bride’s dress to get ruined and I’ve pep-talked a bride who was hysteri...

The Wedding Reporter

I'm not a priest or a rabbi or an online minister — nor do I play one on television — and yet I have married thousands of couples from around the world. And while I have never led an exchange of vows, generations of brides and grooms who once gathered before me have shown thanks by sending emails and postcards from their honeymoons, and, on occasion, invitations to their wedding receptions. My service comes complete with a query that renders women of all tongues rather speechless: “Will you be taking your husband’s last name or keeping your own?” (Silence or stuttering follows, as brides are suddenly faced with having to process, and reveal for the record, the fate of their surnames, some of which will remain in place or join the company of a hyphen, while others wil...
