Nadia has arrived!!

Fun facts to brighten your day!

We thought we would come up with a few fun facts about weddings  to help brighten up your day after all the bad and sad news we have had in the world recently.

So here goes………

Fun Fact #1.  In English tradition, getting married on a Monday is for wealth, Tuesday for health and apparently Wednesday is the ‘best day of all’.  So dont feel that you have to book your wedding on a Saturday….weekday weddings are usually cheaper too!! 

Fun Fact #2.  The word bride originally meant “cook”……we dont think so do we ladies!!

Fun Fact #3.  At Egyptian weddings brides are pinched by female guests as a gesture of good luck.  How mean!!

Fun Fact #4.  The most expensive wedding dress ever worn cost an outrageous 12.2 million dollars, the equivalent to almost 8.2 million British pounds.  Designed by Martin Katz and Renee Strauss  this most costly of gowns was embellished with 150 carats of diamonds!! Wow, bet you needed sunglasses on to look at that beaut!!

Fun Fact #5.  The world’s largest wedding cake weighed 6.818 tonnes (15,032 lb) and was made by chefs at the Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA and displayed at their New England bridal showcase on 8 February 2004.  That would take some eating!

Fun Fact #6. The Most Expensive Engagement Ring in the World is the Blue Diamond Ring by Bulgari which was sold in April 2013 for $9.49 million. Engagement rings have been a marketing product since the late 1900s and same as Valentine’s Day it’s one of those things that caught on and people embraced it. 

Fun Fact #7.  The saying ‘three times a bridesmaid never a bride’ dates way back to the 16th century where it was believed that if a young woman had been a bridesmaid 3 times and had not caught the eye of a suitor, she would never marry. The curse is said to be broken after a woman is a bridesmaid seven times. There is hope for all you singletons yet!

Fun Fact #8. As many as 3,500 couples from all over the world tied the knot at a mass wedding in South Korea organised by the controversial Unification Church a year after its founder died. Row upon row of couples, dressed in white dresses and tuxedos, met at the Cheongshim Peace World Centre in Gapyeong, about 37 miles northeast of Seoul, the capital of South Korea, for their big day.  A further 24,000 followers, who have been dubbed ‘Moonies’ after the church’s founder Sun Myung Moon, were also married in other countries via video link.

Fun Fact #9.  It has been said that if the groom doesn’t turn up to the wedding, it is the best man’s responsibility to take over and marry the bride.  That could be a bit weird if he’s married or your brother…

Fun Fact #10.  In India it is considered lucky and a symbol of protection to be married to of all things…….a tree.  Thats one way to branch out!!!

There you are then…..a few fun and interesting facts about weddings which we hope will bring a little sunshine into your life.

 

Have a great day

Lots of Love

TOP TIPS FOR WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING

Hi All….Liz here again with some top tips for wedding dress shopping.

TIME…..Give yourself 6-9 months if possible! With the huge amount of options available, it can take a while to figure out what you really like, and what suits you.  The last thing you want to do is panic and spend all that money on a dress you’re not quite sure about because you are out of time! Remember it takes an average of 16-20 weeks to tailor a dress and 6 months to tailor a custom wedding gown – so make sure you start in plenty of time!

IN THE AM……Book a morning appointment! That way you start and look fresh, the shop staff are attentive, and everything becomes so much more enjoyable. When you get there early, you are more likely to have an assistant who will be feeling creative and enthusiastic.

WEEKDAYS……Dont wait for a Saturday appointment. Make it for a weekday. Take a days holiday from work and make a day of it. You can plan your day around your appointments, have some lunch with your shopping companions and really enjoy the day. You get the full attention of your consultant and avoid the weekend madness!

4 IS A CROWD…...Only bring 2-3 people with you. We know it’s the most important dress you will ever buy and the world and his wife want to come too but its no fun having lots of people giving their opinions while you’re stood in the middle of a shop wearing a wedding gown you are not sure about! You want a small number of friends/family who you can trust to give you an honest opinion about what works and what doesn’t.  From our experience, your mum, sister and best friend are the best options.

KEEP IT SIMPLE……Try on a few dresses but not too many.  Most brides try four to eight gowns before making their final decision. Try to have an open mind.  Dresses may look good on the hanger but not so good on the person and vice versa! Whilst this means you need to try a few dresses on, things will get very confusing if you try too many on! You can easily become overwhelmed and can miss “the one” because you are confusing the issue by trying different styles! Go with your gut feelings, you will know when you have found “the one”.  You will feel amazing, you won’t want to take it off and there may even be a few tears from the onlookers!!

DON’T WAIT…..If you find “the one”, buy it today!! If you wait it could be gone the next time you are shopping. Designers can discontinue a dress at any time and once its gone its gone! And all good intentions to lose weight and then come back in a few months could mean the difference between getting your dream dress and having to settle for second best!

Hope these top tips help.

Happy Shopping!!

See you soon.

Lots of love,

Liz xxx
