The Mystery of Love

The Mystery of Love

The Mystery of Love

Love overcomes all things…

Love: all consuming, deceptive, exciting, wonderful, and the delicious symptoms of the inability to eat or sleep, racing heart, nausea, lightheaded feelings, contentedness with the world at large (when you are with that special someone), and maybe a tingling all over– these are some of the many ways in which to define the mystery of “love”.

One mystery of love is how each and every day we play the game of cat and mouse all in the search of “true love.” I think we all know by now that true love is a lot harder to catch than we ever imagined. A famous poet once said, “True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen.”

The thought of two people coming together and having the ability to overcome all obstacles, no matter what the circumstance and to honor, protect, accept, and rise above anything life brings your way is truly the all American dream.

The race of our inner being towards another is something we simply can not deny! And the thought of being able to stare into an others eyes and for a moment, or an hour, or even a lifetime, nothing else in the world matters, is truly divine.

Franklin Jones said” “Love doesn’t make the world go round, Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”

Whether or not you have just found your true love, or have discovered that your love for another was unconditional and true by overcoming extreme obstacles, we wish you the greatest of love and happiness for the remaining days of your life.

Sincerely
First Class Weddings

Holiday Wedding

Happy Fourth of July!

Some people would say that the fourth of July signifies the independence of America from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Others however might say that it is the day that they married their best friend.

Believe it or not, choosing to have a holiday wedding (such as on the fourth of July) is more common than you think. Why? Because couples like to choose a date in which they have fond memories, such as the day they proposed, the day they fell in love, or the day they first met. Sometimes these special days happen to fall on a holiday.

While the fourth of July may not be your holiday wedding day of choice, it most definitely may be the perfect day to for others. Now, if the actual calendar dates are not as important to you as the act of getting married itself then you might want to follow this simple guideline in order to help you select your official wedding date.

First you need to choose a month. When undertaking this task there are many things to consider such as work & school schedules, peak travel times, the weather, and so on and so forth. After you have selected your month choose two to three days in that month (this allows for flexibility with selecting locations and vendors). The exact date of choice could be a favorite number, your favorite two single digit numbers put together, a special date, weekends etc.

Whatever you decide it is important to remember that your wedding day or holiday wedding date will be a constant reminder each and every year of the love that you have for the other. Take some time off from your busy schedules to truly enjoy each other. If that day happens to be the fourth of July then Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!

Make-up

Wedding Make-up

The history of make-up dates back as far as the ancient Egyptians who used copper and lead ore to create the world’s first beauty products.  With the advancement of technology, today there are a number of effective beauty products, tips and tricks to help enhance your overall wedding day look (minus the harmful substances of course!).

Check out these fabulous beauty and make-up tips!

Complexion:

Beautiful skin is the ultimate “beauty accessory” so care for it wisely. Do your research and plan on making a line item in your wedding budget for some high-end products. And when the moment comes that you find something that really works, don’t change it!

Face:

Sunscreen is essential to helping maintain an even skin tone.  It is important that you find a product that provides exceptional protection from the sun and neither leaves your face feeling greasy or oily like so many other products do. Our favorite is Shiseido 55, it doesn’t leave a film, make-up sits nicely on top of it and it has amazing protection.

Foundation:

The most common misconception of foundation is that the color should match your face when in fact the perfect foundation or mineral powder should blend flawlessly with the color of your neck.  And most women tend to have a more pink to olive (yellow) skin tone so it is important to remember that products out there are mostly on the pink side of the spectrum. Our favorite is mineral make-up by Bare Essentials

Brows:

Whatever you may or may not think, eyebrows are an important facial feature, especially on your wedding day. Find a skilled technician that you can trust. By doing so, the right shape and color fill can take years off your face.

Eyes:

Yes, white eyeliner brightens the overall look of the eye (when used correctly) and the color of your eyes plays an important role in the make-up you wear on your eyes.

Smile:

Yes, white teeth are a must! There are a lot of different options out there so find out what works best for you and do it!

Public Restroom

Public Restroom
Even Princesses Have to Pee

Public Restroom

Whoever designed wedding dresses obviously never took under consideration that there might be one point throughout a wedding in which the bride would need to pee. If you are having a fairy tale wedding with a fairy tale dress it might be a good idea to strategically plan how your are going to let if flow. Take the public restroom for example. Small stalls, little privacy, and a lot of dress can make it extremely challenging without some serious help. Ways to get around wetting your dress.
  • Be sure that your dress is bustled up first (if applicable)
  • Recruit a few friends to help you with buttons, ties or lifting each side of your dress
  • Consider removing your dress completely before entering the stall (just be sure to lock the door first)

Now I don’t know about you, but the only time I feel compelled to even consider using a public restroom is when I REALLY need one! So be one step ahead of the game. Consider your public restroom facilities at your ceremony and reception venue(s) prior to the big day (or know the alternative options). And remember, no matter what kind of dress you have, there is no doubt that your public restroom experience will be one of a kind!

All businesses dealing with a client
A client dealing with businesses

Companies that employ peopleIt’s simple really. The five codes of wedding ethics listed below will allow each of us to sustain ourselves in a place where we all are proud to work, live and play.

FIVE BASIC WEDDING ETHICS:

Follow the law.

Comply with the Code.

Be accountable.

No matter what way you spin it, a person or companies “Wedding Ethics” matter!
Now we all know that there are some people and businesses that make up their own rules of engagement. The funny thing is that these rules are so far off of the five that we have listed above that it makes you wonder what planet they’re on.

Children at weddings

Children at weddingsChildren at Weddings

Children – to have, or not to have at your wedding? Some couples don’t mind, while others do. Which are you? At some point in the planning process children at weddings become a topic of discussion for several reasons and here are a few.

Why couples may not want children at weddings:

Because it’s a formal affair
They don’t’ want to worry about disturbances
Children aren’t their forte
To cut down on costs
To create Buzz
Solutions:
Hire a Nanny or two
Hire a clown or magician
Provide a kids table with activities (coloring, crafts, ipods, etc)
Provide a mini buffet table with finger/favorite foods
Set-up a “build your own” dessert table

In Hawaii, the culture believes that it’s extremely rude if you don’t allow children at weddings. However, in general; each couple sets their own rules when it comes to allowing children at their event.

Consider this! If kids are not your forte than a destination wedding may be the perfect solution to avoid unnecessary conflict.

GOOD Wedding Guest – BAD Wedding Guest

Bad to the bone or good to go? Let’s talk about it because this subject has been completely overlooked for as long as I can remember. If you are a guest at a wedding good manners & proper etiquette go hand in hand like a flame to a candle.  Here are a few Do’s & Don’ts to consider if you happen to know that you are going to be a wedding guest.

DO
Arrive on time! Not only out of respect but it will also save the couple money by preventing overtime charges for vendors that are waiting on you to begin
DO
Help other guests whenever possible!
DO
Enjoy!
DON’T
Take a picture over the photographers shoulder!
DON’T
Peek over fences, jump over walls, or trespass to see the wedding venue without prior permission
DON’T
Don’t micromanage the wedding!  Just relax and enjoy this special day.

OTHER WEDDING GUEST TIPS:

  • Never wear red to an American wedding unless you want to steal attention away from the bride
  • Remember that private venue’s are just that “private”
  • Respect the photographer and/or videographer’s work! It’s not cool to follow these professionals around taking photos of the poses, scenes, and shots that they’ve already set up., . It’s actually a big “No No”.
