Black as Wedding Motif

Like it has been said, color has an impact on the choices we make. Our reaction to the colors that we see is instantaneous.

During my brother’s wedding, the bride wanted purple as the motif. She said it’s her fave color. We suggested she has to pick another color to match it. She couldn’t give any. While we were looking out for her gown and that of the entourage, it was only then have we decided that it’s gonna be purple and apple green accentuated with black and grey. Where have you found a wedding with four motifs? LOL!

Yours truly chose black as the color of my dress (black is actually NOT a color, hehe). I wanted to be different from the rest of the entourage. The Maid of Honor wore a purple gown and the bridesmaids wore apple green. I sported a black cocktail dress with white gold as accessories.

Most of the guests muttered, “Why black?”

In the Philippines, black symbolizes death. It’s kind of bizarre. Choosing it as one of the motifs in my brother’s wedding was actually a defiance of the cultural norms. In other countries however, it symbolizes elegance and sophistication.

I was oozing with confidence wearing the black outfit because it made me appear thinner. It was able to conceal the bulges in my tummy, LOL! I wasn’t alone who chose black amongst the four motifs though 😉

So what do you think? Will you prefer black as motif of your own wedding?

Unbelieavably Effective

One of the cousins who was a bride’s maid to my brother’s wedding is a licensed radiologist. She once worked at St. Lukes Hospital but later on filed a resignation. She now joined the academe and one of the youngest educators at Davao Medical School.

When we saw each other in December, she talked on how she so wanted to get rid of her acnes. When we went to Davao two weeks ago, she said she found some accutane reviews to help her resolve her acne problems. At my brother’s wedding, she finally got rid of all her acnes.

>The Perfect Wedding Ring


Choosing the perfect wedding ring for couples is as tough as preparing the entire wedding needs. It requires a lot of thought, too. After all, the wedding band will be worn by the couple for their entire lifetime, that is, if they stay married forever, lol!
The following should be taken into consideration when choosing the wedding band:
  1. Budget– How much can the couple afford? The material will then depend on how much the couple can spend for their weddings rings.
  2. Material– Based on the budget, the couple can choose from a wide variety of choices. The most popular is still the 14K-18 K gold rings. Gaining popularity are the white golds. Platinum, titanium, silver and diamond can be included in the couple’s choices as well. Remember the 4Cs here: Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat!
  3. Style- It can range from traditional to the more elaborate ones with beads.

>When Choosing the Perfect Bridal Shoes


Choosing the best shoes on a bride’s wedding day is important. There are a variety of shoes to choose from. But one wouldn’t want to compromise fashion for comfort. There are those who can not withstand wearing high-heeled shoes for longer period of time. So they prefer the flat ones. But one can opt to choose flat bridal shoes nowadays without compromising fashion because there are many elegant and stylish designs available. Though shoes is the least noticed accessory on brides, one must choose the right source with an elegant look. They can choose from sling-backs, stilleto heels, sandals, and flip flops.

There are some things to consider when choosing the perfect bridal shoes. These are the following from The Free Library: Wear the Perfect Bridal Shoes:
  1. The length of your bridal gown.
  2. The bride’s height versus the groom’s height- this will improve wedding photos 😉
  3. Match the color of your shoes to your gown.
