Thought about Marriage from An Unwed Girl

"Getting married is not the end of love story, on the contrary, it is the beginning."

Thought about Marriage from An Unwed Girl -1

I was told by lots of my intimate sisters that getting married does not mean being happy for once and all. In fact, among the huge excitement of being united to a new life, there always comes along with conflicts, strange uncomfortable compromise, heartbroken disagreements, most of the time, unhappy memories more than in love. Of course, what you have been hiding from each other has been shown, and when you don't intend to pretend to be a gentle or adorable companion, but a real other half, things begin to getting ugly, but honey, that is only the ultimate truth of life.

Thought about Marriage from An Unwed Girl -2

They say they get married because they found the
"unique" one, but when stepping into marriage, they found out whoever can be unique one, as in the end, after lots of efforts and compromise, they live peacefully as a family, one that you will live your rest life with. But the process is long and tough. But couples will never give up easily. No, marriage is not like love, much has been cost, and much needs to be maintained.

Thought about Marriage from An Unwed Girl -3

No matter how happily or awfully described, marriage is still a mysterious and noble to us single girls. At one time, we are fearing of the chaos coming along with the heavy responsibility, one the other hand, we do not hesitate for one second to hold on man's hand and say yes when it is truly the best men you will wed.

Thought about Marriage from An Unwed Girl -4

So we are always self contradictory, but as the soft gender on earth, our lust for love, respect, and faith will never fail. So if they say "marriage is the tum of love", let it be, we would not want to be "died without place to be buried".


Wedding Poem

Every marriage has its gazelle, his Panther. Everyone in turn be sensitive and brusque. Burn all maps.

Wedding Poem -1

Power, imagination, tenderness and fortune: the actual
important issues do not appear on any phone, on any map.

By getting married now among you, getting married everything:
mastodon, lemon, electron, plankton, each map.

Wedding Poem -3

The ceremony one day, the next novelty.
Avoid demons, terminology about relationships, each map.

Wedding Poem -4

Small satisfactions full of great expectations
and the opposite. Better not put captions on any map.

Wedding Poem -5

Many people love watching the future, the past.
The full approval with tears will decorate each map.

Wedding Poem -6

The art of love, love for art: when the originals
comply, their colophon overtakes each map.

Wedding Poem -7

You need to laugh. Instead of laughing it's best to get lost.
He left behind that had preceded his pride. He left behind each map.

Wedding Poem -8

Kaleidoscope - endless game a few loose debris.
For the islands you no seer not painted a map.

Go back in time with a Gone with the Wind wedding

Undoubtedly one of- if not the most- iconic movies of all time, Gone with the Wind is renowned for its extravagant and elaborate costumes as well as for the airs and graces of the highly acclaimed Scarlet O’Hara. It’s therefore no surprise that several couples want to integrate a Gone with the Wind theme within their vintage wedding. In fact, the 30’s was one of the most fashionable era of all time, filled with debonair tuxes and huge poufy ball gowns with tiny bodices. Best of all, planning this theme for your wedding is actually much easier and less expensive that you think.
Period costume
For starters, remember that first impressions are last impressions, so be sure to start off with a vintage wedding invitation that will set the overall tone and mood of your special day. Antique or lace trimmed stationaries are fantastic options for these types of cards. Also, remember to include a separate note in your invitation to inform your guests about the theme of the day. If you want to really feel like you’ve stepped back in time, don’t hesitate to ask your guests to dress up in various period costumes from the 30’ as well.
Vintage invitation
Next is the location. Gone with the Mind is also reputed for its picturesque and romantic settings that manage to look extremely appealing even in the midst of the civil war. Indeed, who can forget ‘Tara’, the extravagant mansion nestled in the midst of lush greenery? So, forget about typical indoors weddings and try to book an outdoors location, preferably in the middle of nature, next to a river or waterfall. If you can afford it, don’t forget to embellish the place with an appealing white-flower wedding arch, a circular seating arrangement and the likes.
Romantic location
As far as your wedding dress goes, it’s best to stay away from contemporary styles such as A-cut or Mermaid hems.  The 30’s were brimming with huge, Princess-like dresses and Ball gowns so bear that in mind when you shop for your perfect outfit. However, as large and billowy as the skirt portion of the dress is, remember that the bodice was notoriously small and was often worn with a corset. Now, comfort is the key to any successful wedding so you can of course skip the corset. But, brides who want to go all the way in their Gone with the Wind wedding can buy a vintage boned corset to nip in the waist by several inches. As for the groom, he might want to don a gentleman’s suit as well as a top hat for the special day. Of course, growing a mustache is quite a nice idea as well, especially if he wants to look like the ever-dashing and suave Rhett Butler.
