Wedding Band

The Russian Wedding Band-Designed with three rings intertwined to form a single ring, the Russian wedding band adds thickness and texture to its appearance. With Russian wedding bands, you can diversify the rings with multi-color tones, adding a colorful touch to your wedding band.

The Claddagh Ring-Popular in Irish culture, the Claddagh ring is composed of three symbols; a heart, held by two hands, and topped with a crown. The heart represents love, the hands mark friendship and the crown denotes loyalty, three elements that symbolize a devoted commitment to each other.

Hawaiian Wedding Band-With a Hawaiian wedding band, your spouse’s name is embossed on the ring, commonly engraved in Old English font. You can opt for a more visible view with the name in black lettering or just keep it blended in with the band. What better design than having your spouse’s name engraved?

Symbolism of the wedding band
After discussing the several possibilities of distinctive bands, it’s important to shift emphasis on the symbolism of wedding bands. The wedding band represents a love that has no end. Despite global cultures that reflect their own unique décor to a band, the idea of a wedding band is universal.

Mexico Honeymoon

The enigma of Mexico honeymoon vacations will leave the newlyweds with unforgettable romantic memories. Dining to eye-opening and amazing moments of a Mexican trio’s soulful and heartfelt love songs in garden restaurants and dancing under the romantic moonlight are just the prelude of romance in an exotic venue.

Additionally, shopping activities are not left out and it is easy and fun to spend quality time bargaining in Insurgentes Market of Zona Rosa for brilliant Mexican handcrafts – authentic pottery, jewelry and blankets. Go for a walk through the city which has been standing for centuries and go snorkeling or just enjoy the sun on Mexico’s Riviera – renowned beach in Cancun and visit the Mayan ruins at southern Quintana Roo of Mexico on a horseback riding tour.

Couples who love privacy, relaxing and pampering will find these services offered by most of the Mexico honeymoon resorts. There is a variety of resorts to choose from located all over Mexico, such as the Celba del Mar Spa Resort and Hyatt Cancun Caribe Resorts and Villas in Cancun, Fairmont Acapulco Princess in Acapulco, Las Rocas Resort and Spa in Ensenada, El Cozulmeleño Beach Resort in Cozumel, and The Westin Resort & Spa in Puerto Vallarta.

Mexico honeymoons are not complete without visits to exotic cities in Mexico, each of them bringing forth their own platter of unique attractions. For instance, Cabo San Lucas, attracts crowds with its mysterious natural hideaway and its romantic appeal. While Cancun offers both sophistication and history as well as beautiful beaches and crystal clear sea water.

Puerto Vallarta, on the other hand, provides a romantic combination of the traditional Mexico and modern hideaways. The ever famous Acapulco rightfully referred to as the “Grand Dame” and the “Pearl of the Pacific”, offers one of the most beautiful and romantic bays in the world combined with stunning beaches and wonderful natural surroundings.

Finally, for a taste of authentic Mexican culture, Guadalajara is the place to go which is complete with all the activities and modern comforts that only a large city provides.

A Mexican honeymoon will definitely be an unforgettable romantic experience which will fill couples with delightful memories that will last them for a lifetime. Indeed, this is one destination that should not to be missed!

Wedding Web Site Design

Plan

You should first make a plan for your wedding website and address your different goals and what kind of audience you are trying to reach. Will this be a typical wedding site, one designed for outdoor weddings only, different faith marriages, will you include rings, dresses, invitations, and other information? Will you simply write stories about weddings? You must come up with a cumulative plan, one you can certainly modify as you go along. The more detailed and in depth your plan, the better. You need to have a vision of your site before you start building and designing it and a plan is the starting point.

Evaluate

You should do some serious research on the Internet and check out as many wedding sites as possible. Make a checklist to go over while you are viewing each website that includes things like organization, colors, topics and themes, not to mention ease of navigation, URL formatting, speed, links, and other interesting information. By reviewing what works and what doesn’t work on other wedding websites, you will be able to avoid a lot of mistakes and mishaps of your own. Surfing the web is fast and easy and the perfect way to get some great design ideas as well as design inspiration. This part of your research will prove very successful for you.

Focus

Your wedding website should have a clear focus starting with the very first page. Of course, you can focus on any specific part of a wedding, every aspect, a mixture of aspects, or anything you want. Make sure your focus is clearly stated on the first page so visitors know what is available on your site, where to go, and what to expect. You don’t want to make visitors have to guess or try and figure out what your site is about. Make it easy for your visitors and tell them. When people know what to expect, they are more likely to stay on your site instead of clicking away.

Be a Good Listener of your Wife’s Heart

This is not an article about communication tools or how to communicate (read those too). My primary focus is to encourage you to understand and connect with your wife’s heart and not just what she intends to communicate; her heart is deeper than that. That is not to say that communication in and of itself cannot be intimate, but you can at times connect at the heart without needing the rules of healthy communication, or even a word.

Likely there are times that your wife will repeat herself. This is both an opportunity and a signal. If your wife is repeating herself, most likely she is signaling that she is not feeling “heard” or connected to you. This can be an opportunity once you recognize the signal because now you know you have probably missed it. You can clarify her intended message but her heart needs to be “held.” You may do this simply by holding her. An empathetic word or touch can go a long way. Of course there may be times when a hug is not appropriate. If she doesn’t want you to touch her, maybe she is angry with you, make extra efforts to empathize with her by listening respectfully. The expression on your face may say to her if you care or not.

Another way to “hear” your wife’s heart is to watch for it. When you first started dating, you may have made an effort to notice things she likes and dislikes. Do this again but in deeper ways. Get to know more fully what makes her happy, sad, what her dreams are, etc. When you know these things, never stop looking for them and use them to exhort and encourage her.

When she is upset after a phone call from her parents – “I know how devastating it is for you when your dad disregards you feelings. Do you want to talk about it?”

When she is screaming at you – “If I hadn’t had my mind so focused on work, I would have remembered how important it is for you that I remember the anniversary of your father’s death; I know it makes you feel important to me.”

When she won’t say a word to you – “I know when you won’t talk to me you are usually hurt. I would love to talk about it when you are ready.”

Don’t always wait for the difficult moments to engage her, engage her in the easy ones. It may seem too simple to start dating her again, but it isn’t. First, it will be difficult to date her again consistently. Second, it may not be complex, but it got you a wife the first time. Just like you hopefully do with your kids, look for connecting moments to share. Just as Mary Magdalene poured her precious perfumes over Jesus’ feet, treat her extravagantly. Extravagance is not about money, although some of you who may be scrooges will have to loosen up a bit; it is about time, affection, and serving. As you get moving, she will be on your mind more and it will be easier and more rewarding to continue. You will remember what you once knew about her and learn what you never knew.
