Dear Valued Customer,
Iím not sure about you, but for me, itís
insane that itís already July 1, 2012! We have now officially passed the
yearís half-way mark and will be preparing for Christmas in 5 months!
But, before we get ahead of ourselves and start planning what weíre
going to prepare for Christmas dinner, letís get back to July and the
remaining months of summer.
As you know, summer is the most
popular time for weddings. And, as most weddings occur during the summer
months, it also means most proposals occur during these months as the
majority of brides-to-be give themselves a year to plan their wedding.
One of the most talked-about weddings of this summer was Matthew
McConaughey's wedding to Camila Alves on June 9, 2012. One of the things
I found interesting about the coupleís wedding was how many of their
guests remarked about how much the wedding represented the couple.
think this is one thing that a lot of couples lose track of when
planning their weddings. With all of the decisions to be made regarding
the wedding, itís easy to lose track of who you and your fiancť are and
what your wishes for your wedding truly are. It appears that McConaughey
and Alves didnít let this happen as they planned their wedding. Shoot,
they had their wedding at their home in Austin, Texas where their guests
camped out in the air-conditioned tents (also dubbed ďglampingĒ)
provided for them on the coupleís ranch for a few days! So, how can you
and your fiancť make sure your wedding truly represents who you two are
as a couple?
1. Talk about your relationship. As you begin the
wedding planning, take the time to sit down with each other (just you
two) and discuss the things that make your relationship work. For
example, how did you meet? Do you both share a common interest like
horseback riding, hiking, bowling, etc.? When you can pinpoint the
things that you both love about each other and the relationship you
share, then you will have something to hone in on as you plan your
wedding and the weddingís theme.
2. Donít put too much
emphasis on outside opinions. Another pitfall that many couples fall
into as they plan a wedding is listening to everyoneís opinion about
what they think the couple should do for their big day. While itís okay
to listen to these opinions, donít place a lot of emphasis on them. For
example, when itís time to go shopping for your wedding dress, buy the
one that you fall in love with, not the one that your mother,
mother-in-law or the bridesmaids like the best. The same is true when
you and your husband-to-be pick out the styles of formalwear for the
bridesmaids and groomsmen, make arrangements for your wedding and
groomís cakes as well as all other aspects of the wedding.
Donít be afraid to make the ceremony intimate. One of the things I loved
reading about the McConaughey-Alves wedding was how the priest asked
them to share with each other what they loved about the other and
Matthew leaned over and whispered his answer into Camilaís ear. The
guests couldnít hear what he was saying, but some said that that moment
was the most intimate/emotional moment of the whole wedding. If you and
your future spouse want to do something like this at your wedding, then
do it! Donít be afraid of what others will think.
