I caught up with a few of my fave people in the wedding world to ask them how brides can get the most unique wedding shot list ideas to capture their entire wedding journey.
I think changing my name reflects one of the keys behind our 21-year marriage. Marriage is a long love affair, and it also a team where you work together to solve problems. To be long term, each has to have the utmost respect for each other.
If we accept from the beginning that marriage is a long-term process and journey available to committed partners, our expectations, our standards of achievement, and our prospects for success will all be changed in the direction of more successful, durable and satisfying partnerships.
Many occupations are significantly more flexible between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Heck, in Europe, whole cities shut down in August for vacation. And if there are kids involved in the wedding, coordinating school schedules any other time of year is a complete nightmare.
People are just excited and everyone wants to hear planning details. Let others know that you are taking your time and will begin the planning process as soon as you're ready.
You hadn't imagined being married to a writer would be quite like this. Though what would you did imagine it would be like is hard to remember now. Civilized evenings discussing the classics? Moonlit strolls reciting poetry?

If we are mindful and reflective as we plan weddings and other milestone celebrations, we can develop skills for forging and maintaining relationships that will last a lifetime.
It is easily assumed that your bridesmaids are spending just as much time obsessing about their lips and lashes as you are, but before reality steals your sanity like your post wedding bank account, let's touch on tradition vs. your mission and appropriate ways to get your ladies in line.
No marriage is perfect, it will not always be "rainbows and butterflies"; it takes work to keep a marriage going. It takes humility, sacrifice, and a lot of energy. But when there are so many people ready to swoop in and make themselves available to your spouse with the simple click of a button, it almost feels like it is an impossible undertaking.
My husband, son and I sit in the urologist's waiting room. It's New Year's Eve; a skeleton staff runs the office. I hope it isn't a prognostic metaphor. After several minutes, a nurse appears and herds us off to a conference room, down a private hall. This can't be good.
As a male in the dating world, I would like to invite my other male counterparts to view what is expected from us by doing what I did and watching romantic comedies. Needless to say, we have a lot to live up to.
I haven't felt "sexy" in years. It probably sounds sad to some, but I really haven't missed it. I know it's no one's fault but my own. I can't blame my husband for not making me feel sexy when, in truth, I haven't really wanted to feel sexy.
I can only imagine what she was thinking as she danced with her son on his wedding day. Probably back to the long days when she lived on little sleep, wore her hair pulled back too often and changed diapers tirelessly.
