It is one of those moments that you and your bride-to-be feel like you’re both on cloud nine: being so sweet with each other after your woman said “yes” to your marriage proposal. We hate to burst your bubble but it is not yet the time to celebrate, as there are a few things you shouldn’t do before proceeding to the wedding aisle.
1.Do not assure that you’ll cover all the expenses
While the bridesmaids adore your future wife’s sparkly Champagne diamond engagement ring and make them search for more at 77 Diamonds; there is a common mistake most couples make as they try to express their purest intentions without having an absolute idea how much a wedding would cost them. Upcoming brides, never promise your bridesmaid to cover her expenses and bring her a Landa Designs gown; doing so would only disappoint her as you tell her you cannot commit to do such. It may seem like a nice gesture but buying bridesmaids gowns will add up quickly. Instead give jewelry as a gift, something they can wear again.
2.Never allow your parents to plan your wedding
This would only give them the liberty to invite all of their friends, etc., without you and your spouse’s approval. Once you open this door it’s hard to close it again and can cause many fights. The guest list should include the people you want to share your wedding day with, not your parents golfing buddies! It is wise to talk the whole wedding plan with your groom and list down all the important things you need to include as a couple.
3.Stop inviting people
Once you do, you cannot run away from it. It’s ok to not invite everyone. Yes, some people will feel left out but if you are on a tight budget then know your limits. Feeding all your guests is the most expensive part of the day. Talk it over before you start announcing it to everyone. Do you want a large party or an intimate one? It is better to know your wedding plans and expenses, before you start tapping people.
4.Don’t delegate the “best” tasks to certain members of the family
It would be an awry scenario if your groom and his family found out that you have assigned the best tasks to your family members while you groom’s will have to deal with whatever tasks are left. Instead, ask both parties which task they would like to work on. This way, both parties can have the time to get along with each other. Also, keep the tasks simple and ones you won’t freak out over if they don’t do it the exact way you envisioned it! Let go of some of the control so you can focus on enjoying your day more!
Many of us our celebrating Father’s Day this weekend. Give your dad a big hug, tell him how much you love him and thank him for being there for you. Dad’s are so important and need to be praised for that role. Whether or not you and your man have children yet, he is still a role model and we found him some fun gifts. These can also easily be wedding day gifts to give to your groom or to the groomsmen for supporting their man of the hour. Either way, show your love with a gesture or small gift! Thanks again to my dad for always being there for me.
First up, we found a Portland Growler. How cool is that? Now the next time he heads to his favorite bar he can leave with 32 oz of his fav’ brew. Head to red envelope to personalize it
We know the greens are bright and long in lovely Oregon. Many of our men love heading out into nature to drive a few balls toward that tiny hole with a flag in it. Yes, for the golf lovers out there get them an hour private lesson with a PGA Pro! What an awesome gift. Find more exciting adventure gifts at Cloud Nine Living!
Your dad or fiance may not like being in the kitchen but once warmer weather starts they are outside cooking on the grill all the time. Maybe it’s being so close to fire that inspires men around the world to put on the bbq apron, whatever it is we love a good juicy steak too! Coolest part, a meat tenderizer in the shape of brass knuckles – doesn’t get any more manly than that! Here’s a fab gift for the man who love’s cooking on the grill from Man Crates. They have so many awesome crates it was hard to pick just one to showcase!
We think any of these gifts will make your dad or husband or finance smile from ear to ear!
