How to Incorporate Wedding Songs in Your Wedding Vows Wedding vows are perhaps the most touching part of any wedding. It is the moment when the bride and groom expresses their love for each other, promising a lifetime relationship sealed with assurance. With that, a lot of couples chooses to customize their wedding vows instead of sticking to the regular and traditional vows. One popular way of personalizing a wedding vow is through incorporating songs in them. If you also find that wedding vows should be more intimate, and thus more personal, here are some tips on how to assimilate songs into your vows.1.  Look for inspiration. Start off by looking at the traditional ones, those common vows from your religion if you practice a specific faith. At the same time, think of something striking or your favorite lyrics. If you have a ‘theme song’ or a couple song – a song that reminds one of the other – that would be the best song to derive your wedding vow from.2.  Agree on the format and tone of your vow. How do you want your wedding vows to come across? If you decide to have a poetic and romantic wedding vow, a mellow-tuned song is a good match or perhaps an all-instrumental one.3. Write important things about your relationship. The things you’ll say in your vow are typically the things that you felt during the first time you met or something about your partner that made you fall in love. Here are a few questions that you can ask yourself as you look for the perfect song.a.  Why did you decide to be engaged to this person?b.   How much support have you given and received?d.    Are you ready to face whatever challenge you’ll have in the future?e.    Do you have goals as a couple?f.     What comes to mind every time you see your fiancé?g.    When was your first realization of love?h.   Has your life been better since the day you met your partner?i.    How many times have you been dreaming of walking down the aisle while he waits for you at the altar?4.  Practice by reading it loud. Don't just recite the vows. You should also record yourself and listen to it. With that, you can find the best version of the vow recital. Make it short and conversational. While we understand how much you want to make your partner feel your affection during that moment, you should only use small gestures.Do you already started writing your wedding vows?

6 Reasons Why A Wedding Checklist Is An Absolute Must-Have When it comes to your big day, you need to invest a lot on wedding planning, something that’s almost impossible to do if you don’t have a wedding checklist.It’s not that you won’t be able to pull off your big day, but if you want it to be just like how you imagined it would be, you won’t be able to come by without a wedding checklist. What is it about wedding checklists that makes it so important? We’ll tell you what.1. It Keeps All Your Wedding Needs In PlaceYou only get married once (not unless you’re widowed or annulled who plans to remarry). A little less than perfect won’t do. It would be a total shame to have your wedding in shambles just because of one little detail, something that could have been easily avoided if only your wedding planning was all in place. When you’re planning your wedding, you don’t just have one thing in your hands. You have a lot and it won’t be so easy to keep track of them all. Having a wedding checklist reminds you of the things that needs to be prioritized at the moment. It tells you when you can chill and when you should start preparing for the next step of the wedding planning. 2. It Makes Wedding Planning Absolutely Stress-FreeWe all want our wedding to be the best day of our life, but it won’t happen like magic. Having an ideal wedding checklist on hand lets you go stress free as you plan your wedding. After all, it’s not just the wedding planning that’s important. You also need to be fully present during your wedding day - physically, mentally, and emotionally. You won’t be able to do so if you’ve already used up all your energy. Why let yourself go through that trouble if there’s a better way to handle things? With a wedding checklist, no matter what stage you are in the process, you’ll know what’s been done and what needs more work. You’ll also be able to add more stuff so you can make sure that everything is in check. 3. It Lets Your Relax When planning your wedding, it’s important to be critical and creative at the same time, but more than anything in the whole process, you need to enjoy your big day. The wedding planning process involves many parts, some of which are pretty daunting if you’re not planning ahead of each task. A wedding planning checklist helps you keep tab of all the tasks that needs to be perfected for the success of your wedding. No need to keep on rethinking which tasks should go next or which accessories you need to buy. Everything is in your grasp. With that, you’ll be able to give yourself some time to relax. Maybe hit the spa or spend some quality time with family and friends. Keeping yourself relaxed days or months before the wedding, not only makes the preparation a lot easier. You’ll also be able to enjoy your wedding day more. 4. You’ll Be Able To Budget Your Wedding More Efficiently You promised yourself that when you go wedding shopping, you’re only going to buy the things that you need and stay right on budget. However dedicated you are to do so, it won’t be so easy if you don’t know what you need to buy. Sure, right now, you feel like you already know it all by heart, but the moment you enter the mall, you’re going to see a lot of cute wedding items and before you know it, you’ve already lost track of the things you need to buy. With a wedding planning checklist, you can simply handover your list to the clerk and he’ll bring you everything you need. You can even estimate how much everything will cost before you head to the shop since you already have a list of the things you need.5. You’ll Get To Keep Track Of Your AppointmentsIn wedding planning, you’ll mostly think up wedding ideas, but you’ll also be meeting with wedding suppliers, lots and lots of them. It would be pretty hard to keep track of them all. Not if you have a wedding checklist with you. Most people use wedding checklists to have something to recall their to-do and to-buy lists, but your wedding checklist is also a fine place for you to put schedules and appointments. Listing down your appointments gives you a chance to breathe while being productive. You can get moving in your own time. You don’t have to scurry downtown right after a family lunch realizing that you’re supposed to meet with your photographer. No rushing. No worries.6. You’ll Have Something To Show Your Wedding PlannerFirst time you got engaged, finding a wedding planner was the first thing on your list. Sure, you can go ahead and plan the wedding yourself. Yet, having a wedding planner would really be a great help. Looking for a great wedding planner is one thing. However, you still need to give him an idea of how you want your wedding to look like. If you can’t give him a clear picture of your dream wedding yet, then at least you can show him a checklist of the things you expect on your wedding. It’ll help your wedding planner in a ton of ways. You also get to chat with your wedding planner about how he likes your checklist. It’s important to be honest about how you want your wedding to play out. Still, you should also trust your planner’s expertise. Perhaps, he can give you a few suggestions of what needs to be added in your list. Indeed, a wedding checklist is an absolute must-have. There’s no doubt about it. It makes your life easier in a ton of ways. You get to keep your wedding needs in check at all times. You’ll be worry-free all throughout the planning because you’ve got everything listed out. What happens when you’re worry-free? It means you’ll have more time to relax and chill out, which is exactly what you need before you slay your wedding day. When you start listing everything down, budgeting becomes a whole lot easier.

Groomsmen Attire: What your groomsmen could wear Whether you're going to be a groomsman or the bride/groom, it is essential that you think about how you will present yourself during the wedding ceremony. There are several do's and don'ts when it comes to the groomsmen’s attire and most of the time the wedding couple will have their specific ideas of what kind of groomsmen attire they wanted. Before we go on with the different groomsmen attire ideas, let us first take note of following as it may help you to figure out what the groomsmen should wear sans the aesthetic and the overall feel when the big day comes. First, is that as the bride or groom, provide specific advice, suggestions, and demands to your groomsmen. Tell what you want them to wear and what you do not want. With this openness, the groomsmen would exactly know what to wear. Consequently, you will be sure you'll be happy with the way things will turn out. Think about to what degree they would match each other. Are they all going to wear the same tuxedo or maybe the same bow tie could be enough or the same vest? Get them the same accessories as well for consistency.As what is mentioned earlier, make sure that the groom is different from all the groomsmen’s attire, to give that sense that he's elevated. This is his day. So basically, it's not just the bride's day. And the bride isn't just the only one hyped with this event. The bride usually wears a dress that would stand out from the bridesmaid, but if the groom wears the same tuxedo just like his groomsmen, then it would be easy for them to look the same. There should be a distinction that this guy is the groom that even from afar the guest could easily distinguish who is and isn't.Another thing to keep in mind is that don't wear rentals. Even though rentals are the popular thing for weddings because maybe you want to wear a tuxedo, but usually these suits are made of the cheapest materials. Not only does it look very cheap, but also very hard to wear. The wearers could get uncomfortable. Also, the fit of these suits could be off. Others could have jackets that are way too long, making your big event more of a clownish circus party than a well-dressed wedding party. You could also opt for a vest instead. Vests usually have deeper cut armholes so there wouldn't be sleeve length issues. Lastly, grooms should not wear colored shirts. Sometimes you want to clique with the wedding theme color but it's just over the top. If you want to play with color, you could use pocket square or the boutonniere flowers instead. You'll save the question "what the heck, am I thinking when I choose to wear this red shirt?" years after, as you look back to your wedding pictures. Here are different ideas for groomsmen attire:The Classic White Shirt When it comes to that casual vibe, look no further than a classic white shirt. It is perfectly paired with khaki pants, dress slacks or jeans. This is a timeless look despite being casual. The casual white shirt will definitely look great on your groomsmen in your wedding.The Blue Jeans For that rustic or country wedding, having the groomsmen and the groom wear all blue jeans might go better than the traditional suit. To make sure the look will not be sloppy, the groomsmen attire must be pressed and hemmed correctly.The Hawaiian Cool Vibe Having a Hawaiian destination wedding or that beside-the-sea wedding, it would be nice to embrace the fun with a themed shirt. Have the groom wear a formal jacket over it and the groomsmen with suspenders or without. At the reception, they'll stay cool and comfortable at the same time.The Chambray They say that the chambray is the classic white shirt's country cousin, well indeed it is. It is a pretty fabric that is very lightweight and breathable. This groomsmen attire works well on a beach or on a farm wedding.The Khaki Shorts When comes to a casual beach wedding, comfort is key. If the bride is planning to wear a simple white sundress, this outfit will coordinate well with the attire. The groomsmen and the groom will not mind this attire choice as it is a comfortable choice.The Tweed Vest When you do not want that everyday casual and yet be informal, the tweed vest is perfect for your groomsmen and the groom as well. This classic piece can be worn again, so it is good to invest in the quality of the tailoring and the pattern of the vest that they love.Wool Layers For a casual winter or wedding in a cool climate, you can have the groomsmen and the groom skip the traditional suit and make them layer with a wool sweater and a sports coat. You'll be surprised that the overall effect will be still formal and dressed up, with the practicality to keep the men warm for the cool ceremony.The Tie & Suspenders If you intend to have a summer wedding, simply skip the jacket and roll up the shirt sleeves of your groomsmen. You could opt to give your groomsmen attire some accessories with linen tie and leather suspenders.An Eclectic Jacket For modern and boho weddings with a casual dress code opt for the classic button up shirt for your groom and groomsmen and pair it with a unique and stylish jacket. You could have the groomsmen wear different kinds of patterned jacket with the same or almost the same color and the groom in a different one. Just make sure that the groom will really stand out. Encourage them to find the one that represents their own unique style.
