One of our favorite blogs (Glamour magazine's Save the Date) poses an interesting question. Do you practice your first kiss before you get married??
We know, it sounds silly... you've been kissing each other for ages. But... but! What if his head hits yours, or you both lean the same way, or you guys close yours eyes a second too soon and run nose into nose!
Okay, we don't mean to be dramatic but let's just take a moment out from wedding planning and hiring vendors to think about the first kiss -- that amazing moment you two will share. Surely it needs to be perfect.
This story absolutely takes the cake for effort, talent, and dedication! Illustrator Guy Shield drew up a regular old comic strip for his girlfriend Liz. Then, once all the pieces were drawn out, he asked her to fold up the comic a certain way and... voilà! A unique and utterly adorable marriage proposal.
The pieces below match up with the proposal above, check it out!
Want to save a little money on your wedding? Consider a city hall marriage! Now, we know there may be some stigma, and stereotypes about weddings in a non-traditional reception/ceremony site but consider the following photos as proof. We now present the adorable wedding of Kelly and Peter, who married last summer in the San Francisco City Hall.
The bride and groom are dressed adorably -- seriously, we could have an entirely separate discussion on the bride's yellow dress in itself!
Have you ever considered a city hall wedding? Skip some the drama and have it be just about the two of you, and your lucky witnesses?
According to Glamour Magazine, there is a specific roasted chicken recipe that, well, helps you get engaged! It all started when an editor at the magazine gave the recipe to an assistant who made the delicious dish for her boyfriend. Within a month, she was engaged! As the recipe was passed around from assistant to assistant, the weddings had been sparked!
So while all of our OurWeddingDay.com brides may already be engaged (congratulations by the way!) surely there are friends out there in relationships who also want to get engaged. And who enjoy roast chicken.
What an adorable engagement story! Linda's friends insisted on going to a local art gallery to check out a Polaroid exhibit. After perusing the photos, Linda spotted a photo of her boyfriend holding up a sign that read "Turn Around." Confused, Linda slowly turned around to see her boyfriend in the window of the gallery holding another sign.... only this one asked "Will You Marry Me?"
We love grand gestures of love and romance... but does this marriage proposal possibly go too far? In the video above, a man proposes to his girlfriend at Disneyland with a full-on musical! While it is sweet how much he clearly loves her (they met at Disneyland one year before the proposal, aww!), we can't help but wonder how public is too public?
It's not that we're knocking this guy for his grand gesture... is it just us? What do you think? Would you want to be proposed to in front of a giant crowd of people you don't know? Is more really the merrier?
This may be one of the most adorable marriage proposals we've seen to date... and trust us, we've seen a lot. Nathan and his friends found a nearby forest with a grove surrounded by trees. During the day, they set up over 200 battery-powered tea lights and struck then all along the trees.
Later that night, Nathan met Katie on the beach to go for a walk. As they approached the woods Nathan tied his sweater over Katie's eyes and brought her to the lit grove. What is even sweeter is that once he uncovered Katie's eyes Nathan stumbled over his proposal because he was so nervous, and Katie simply kept nodding her head yes unable to speak.
How much thought have you given to what you're going to do with your lovely tresses on your big day? Do you go for the chic updo with intricate pinning or do you let it go relaxed and wavy?
