Plan Your Party Like A Criminal Planning A Heist
The most ridiculous blowout bash of your entire life. Your last hurrah. Your bachelor party has arrived. Kiss your future wife goodbye at the door, tell her you’ll miss her, then get into the waiting taxi or car and let your friends whisk you away to one last night, weekend or week of singledom. Then break off all contact with her. For the rest of the bachelor party, you should observe a radio silence.
Experts recommend that you do something fun and simple.
The rehearsal dinner is a great opportunity for your two families to spend time together before the wedding day in a not-so-hectic setting. Take advantage of the relaxed environment, full of happy anticipation—come wedding night, you'll most likely be pulled in too many directions to put in quality time with anyone. The ultimate goal is to relieve some prewedding tension and make everyone feel comfortable with the upcoming nuptials, while not upstaging the main event.
So you have the music, the lights, and the blusher... Now GO.
Most Christian wedding processionals and recessionals follow the same basic order, with the exception of the Catholic wedding ceremony, where the bride's father escorts her to the altar but does not give her away before taking his seat. At the altar, the bride stands on the left, the groom on the right, facing the officiant. The best man stands beside the groom, with the ring bearer and ushers to his right. The maid of honor stands beside the bride, with the flower girl and bridesmaids to her left.
One Promise and You are Mine, Forever & Ever.
Few things are more beautiful than when a groom sees his soon-to-be wife walk down the aisle. The audience releases a collective sigh of approval and the groom is usually stuck and unable to breathe. The exchange of wedding vows are when the bride and groom make their sacred promises to each other. The vows that you make are at the heart of your wedding day and have been spoken by millions of couples over the centuries. They can not be re-written or changed in any way for legal reasons – they are the words of commitment to a shared life that define you as ‘married’.
Let's start this new life with something sweet.
The wedding cake has long been a symbolic detail the tradition of breaking the cake over the bride's head dates back to the Ancient Romans. Customs evolve with the times, of course, and today the ceremonial cutting of the wedding cake has remained a popular and meaningful wedding reception activity (The Knot 2016 Real Weddings Study reveals 89 percent of couples include the cake cutting during their reception). It provides both a fabulous photo opportunity and symbolizes the couple's first joint task as newlyweds.
Finally, You are officially Mine.
The recessional begins immediately after the first kiss you have as Mr. and Mrs. so it shouldn't come as a shock that you and your brand-new hubby will lead the way back down the aisle. Not before your maid-of-honor hands you back your bouquets and straightens out your gown and its train if it should need it. After you come the flower girl and ring bearer, followed by the maid of honor and best man.
