    What to Ask the Priest/Vicar

     The decision to get married is followed by numerous questions between the bride and groom about what they want from their wedding day as well as their future together.   

    Choices they will have to make will include what wedding date to choose, how they want to get married and what they will have to do to save enough money for their wedding. 

    Once these decisions have been made, the couple can discuss the questions that they should ask whoever is going to marry them!

    History of the Wedding Dress

    history of the wedding dress One of the first things that a bride thinks about when she is due to get married is what she will be wearing on the day. 

    The bride's dress is a major element of her perfect day and she will need to consider what colour, what fabric and what style will suit her best and, like most things, the wedding dress comes with a history!

    In today's modern times it is no longer thought necessary to wear a white wedding dress which to most people signified purity and virginity.  Modern dresses are tailored to the bride in a variety of shapes and colours but the white dress is a very old tradition going back even as far as the Romans.

    Manicure for the Groom

    grooms hands The groom should have his own agenda in the lead up to his wedding day that involves his skin care regime or how he will have his hair on the day and just as the bride likes to take care of her nails, as should the groom’s hands and nails look smart on his wedding day. 

    The following article will give any groom-to-be some advice on what a manicure is and how to keep your nails healthy.

    Just like the bride-to-be, the groom’s hands will also be on show when the ring is placed on his finger and when the newly married couple cut the cake.  So much emphasis is on the bride’s look but this does not mean that the groom should forget his own hands.

    Arabian Themed Hen Party

     Planning your hen party can be exciting and sometimes a little bit daunting, especially if you are unsure as to what theme route you want to go down. 

    An Arabian theme night for your hen party could give you just the theme you are looking for!

    As well as bringing your girlfriends together to have a laugh, having a spicy Arabian night will enable you to incorporate themed costumes and food as well as music into your evening.  Sometimes known as a Harem night these ornate parties can also include belly dancers, genies, sultans and even snakes.
