Should You Plan Your Wedding With Your Fiancé?

Posted on October 31st, 2007 by Melissa in Anything Goes 1 Comment

Is this a no-brainer? Everyone (even guys) have thought and dreamed about what their ideal wedding might be like. The problem is, however you imagine your wedding, your fiancé probably has a very different picture. So what should you do? You need to Discuss, Decide and Write it down.

You might not think that something like a vision could be so important. In order for a relationship to succeed and last for eternity, you must learn to communicate early. Catching a potential problem before it becomes a real problem turns out to be a critical ingredient in an everlasting marriage. Go figure, huh?

So, you two sit down and begin discussing your wedding. First thing – cost – how much, who pays, etc. If the cost factor involves relatives you will need to know how much they are willing to contribute. Once cost has been assessed, then you can talk about the ceremony – location. Where do you want to be married? In a church, City Hall, Las Vegas, where? And you both continue on until the major areas are settled – date, ceremony, reception, style, number of guests, etc. Each component of your wedding day should, ideally, be mutually agreed upon (or at least compromised upon).

The point of this tip is to communicate. If you reach a stumbling block, hash it out and compromise.
If you want your marriage to last forever, you need to learn now how to communicate, disagree and compromise with your soon to be spouse. Once you are married, you cannot think only of yourself because you are not alone anymore and every aspect of your life will greatly affect them as well.

Deciding upon the details of your wedding together will be a great test of the strength of your relationship, so enjoy it, and make it fun!

Couple Celebrates 70th Wedding Anniversary

Posted on October 30th, 2007 by Kori Ellis in News, Wedding Anniversaries No Comments

70 YEARS! That’s a long time if you think about it. Imagine being with the “One You Love” all that time. Well, that’s exactly what J.W. and Mable Best did. They have Truly beaten the odds.

The happy couple from East Texas, married in 1937, have only been apart one time during their marriage while J.W. served in WWII. “Naturally, I was worried about him because I knew he was going into battle, and I wrote him a letter everyday,” said Mable. The Best’s family held a celebration in J.W. and Mable’s honor Saturday. “I love her more today, than I did the day we met.” said J.W., adding that he “knew” she was the one.

After reading this article I wanted to see what the statistics are for couples sticking together this long. With the divorce rate at nearly 50%, what are the chances? Well, to my surprise, people are actually staying together longer, and the divorce rate is down, yet the rate of marriage is also down. The number of couples living together without any intention of getting married has increased.

I think that couples who share the same values as J.W. and Mable won’t have to worry about statistics one bit. Every couple should use the 2 “Key Things” that Mable says keeps a marriage together: Love & Devotion.

Let’s all toast to the “Bride & Groom” for a marriage well done! Truly exceptional!

Groom’s Brother Poisons Wedding Guests

Posted on October 29th, 2007 by Kori Ellis in News 1 Comment

Siblings don’t always get along, but one Somali native decided to get back at his brother on a whole new level.

Candy Poisons Wedding GuestAmbe Abdillahi Omer, 39, attempted to kill the guests at his younger brother’s wedding celebration. Omer handed out approximately 200 poisoned candies to everyone that participated in the ceremony. He also poisoned the water jugs and eating utensils. Five guests became seriously ill while one of Omer’s own brothers and a sister died.

A local chairman, Hassan Mohamad Abdirahman, told reporters, “It’s a miracle that the bride and groom are safe!”. Omer confessed to the attempt, claiming he intended to kill as many people as possible. Omer made a point to say that he had no regrets. The reason behind the attack remains unclear.

Maybe Omer was jealous of his younger brother, but there are certainly better ways to handle it!

Father Daughter Wedding Songs

Posted on October 28th, 2007 by Elsa in Wedding Songs 8 Comments

Dancing With My Daughter, AlexisFather daughter wedding songs came to my mind recently when I heard the song “Brown Eyed Girl” on an internet radio station. This is the song that I danced with my daughter at my wedding in May of 2006. My daughter and I both looked forward to this dance very much, and it was wonderful (yes, that’s the real picture there). I guess it goes to show that you should choose your weddings songs carefully, because they will remind you of that day every time you hear them, probably forever. I decided to come up with a list of the 10 best father daughter wedding songs. Okay, so this list might be a little bit biased, but you get the big picture.

Here’s my list –

1. Brown Eyed GirlVan Morrison
2. My GirlTemptations
3. The Way You Look TonightFrank Sinatra
4. Butterfly KissesBob Carlisle
5. What A Wonderful WorldLouie Armstrong
6. Have I Told You LatelyRod Stewart
7. Wonderful TonightEric Clapton
8. Wind Beneath My WingsBette Midler

Hero – Wedding Song Lyrics

Posted on October 28th, 2007 by Elsa in Anything Goes No Comments

By Mariah Carey

There’s a hero
If look inside your heart
You Don’t have to be afraid
Of what you are
There’s an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So When you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you’ll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

It’s a long road
When you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
Will disappear

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you’ll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

(ohhhhhh) Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But Don’t let anyone
Tear them away (hey yeah)
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time you’ll find the waaaaaaaaaaayyyyy

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So When You feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you’ll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in yooooooou
That a hero lies innnnnnnnnnn
…yooooooooou…
Mmmm That a hero lies in
…yoooooooooooooooooou…

Isn’t She Lovely – Wedding Song Lyrics

Posted on October 28th, 2007 by Elsa in Anything Goes No Comments

By Stevie Wonder

Isn’t she lovely
Isn’t she wonderfull
Isn’t she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we’d be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn’t she lovely made from love

Isn’t she pretty
Truly the angel’s best
Boy, I’m so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can’t believe what God has done
through us he’s given life to one
But isn’t she lovely made from love

Isn’t she lovely
Life and love are the same
Life is Aisha
The meaning of her name
Londie, it could have not been done
Without you who conceived the one
That’s so very lovely made from love

Wind Beneath My Wings – Wedding Song Lyrics

Posted on October 28th, 2007 by Elsa in Anything Goes No Comments

By Bette Midler

It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way
You always walked a step behind
So I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name, for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain

Did you ever know that you’re my hero
And everything I would like to be
If I can fly higher than an eagle
You are the wind beneath my wings
It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I’ve got it all here in my heart
I want you to know I know the truth
Of course I know it
I would be nothing with out you

Fly, fly, fly away
You let me fly so high
Oh, fly, fly
So high against the sky
So high I almost touch the sky
Thank you, thank you, thank god for you
The wind beneath my wings

Wonderful Tonight – Wedding Song Lyrics

Posted on October 28th, 2007 by Elsa in Anything Goes No Comments

By Eric Clapton

It’s late in the evening
She’s wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go to a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
That’s walking around with me
And then she asks me
Do you feel alright
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don’t realize
How much I love you

It’s time to go home now
And I’ve got an aching head
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I tell her
As I turn out the light
I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight

Have I Told You Lately – Wedding Song Lyrics

Posted on October 28th, 2007 by Elsa in Anything Goes No Comments

By Rod Stewart

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness
take away all my sadness
ease my troubles that’s what you do

For the morning sun in all it’s glory
greets the day with hope and comfort too
You fill my life with laughter
and somehow you make it better
ease my troubles that’s what you do
There’s a love that’s divine
and it’s yours and it’s mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
we should give thanks and pray
to the one, to the one

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness
take away all my sadness
ease my troubles that’s what you do

There’s a love that’s divine
and it’s yours and it’s mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
we should give thanks and pray
to the one, to the one

And have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one else above you
You fill my heart with gladness
take away my sadness
ease my troubles that’s what you do
Take away all my sadness
fill my life with gladness
ease my troubles that’s what you do
Take away all my sadness
fill my life with gladness
ease my troubles that’s what you do

What A Wonderful World – Wedding Song Lyrics

Posted on October 28th, 2007 by Elsa in Anything Goes No Comments

By Louis Armstrong

Some of you young folks been saying to me
“Hey Pops, what you mean “What a wonderful world”
How about all them wars all over the place
You call them wonderful
And how about hunger and pollution
That aint so wonderful either”
Well how about listening to old Pops for a minute
Seems to me, it aint the world that’s so bad
but what we’re doin’ to it
And all I’m saying is
See what a wonderful world
It would be if only we’d give it a chance
Love baby, love
That’s the secret, Yeah
If lots more of us loved each other
We’d solve lots more problems
And then this world would be better
That’s wha’ ol’ Pops keeps saying
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, dark sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces, of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, sayin’ “how do you do?”
They’re really sayin’ “I love you”

I hear babies cryin’, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more, than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Yes I think to myself, what a wonderful world
Oh yeah
