Wedding Gift Ideas for Second Marriages

The main purpose of giving gifts to married couples is to help them start their new life together. For a second marriage however, people assume that the couple already has everything they need, so buying gifts for them becomes difficult. More often than not, they are stocked up on the essentials of starting a new life together, hence, the need to have a registry is not felt. This said, the choice of gift is all up to you, so it shouldn’t baffle you.

You can take your liberties and deviate from the traditional gifts that you would have given a newlywed couple. You can contribute to their joy by coming up with something that is unique and well, something they can enjoy as a couple. After all, it is their special day and it makes sense to present them something that will help them start their married life.

Weekend Bonanza

The couple would definitely appreciate some time alone, and a weekend getaway seems the perfect idea for a gift. Most couples may have children from the previous marriage, hence the best way to show you care for them is to babysit their children so that they get some time for themselves. If possible you can even hire a caravan for the couple.

Day at the Spa

The benefits of a nice massage is known to all, then why not give the couple a coupon to a spa. There are a lot of massage treatments for couples on offer at such places. This way they can rejuvenate themselves and also spend enough quality time together.

Gift Basket

A big basket filled with goodies is another good gift choice. There are numerous possibilities when it comes to a gift basket and you can be spot on with something like this.

Hammock Built for Two
A perfect gift for married couples whether it’s a first or second marriage, is a hammock built for two. Doesn’t a hammock spell comfort to you? This way the couple gets to spend time together whenever they can.

Something they Need
You and a few friends could pool your resources and gift the couple something they really need. It could be anything from a couch to a music player. The point is, you have to keep in mind what they really need, considering their taste.

In Kind
The best gift you can give is cash. The couple can use it to purchase whatever they need. Besides, it can come in handy on their honeymoon, and to meet a lot of expenses after the wedding. Think of some innovative ways to give the cash though!

Framed Moments

Get your hand on some of their cherished moments, make a collage and frame it, and present it to the couple. A picture perfect moment always makes for a perfect gift, wedding or otherwise.

Gift Certificates
Gift certificates make the perfect gift for any occasion. If they love dancing, give them a gift certificate for any dance classes like salsa or ballroom dancing. Another good option is to give them tickets to a concert or a game show.

Dinnerware

The safest bet when it comes to wedding gifts is dinnerware, no matter how many different patterns and sets one has, they are always welcome. You could even customize the dinnerware prior to gifting it.
Say it with a Card
Well, if you are still confused with what to gift the couple, simply give a card to wish them the best in life.
Feelings associated with the gift are equally important – so anything presented with love and admiration will be appreciated. Sometimes, just partaking in their joy is as good as a gift. You can also come up with your ideas for a perfect gift for the couple.

Best Honeymoon Destinations for Young Couples

download-5The honeymoon is that perfect time when you can finally have a rest after the wedding cares and give all your time to your beloved one. Of course, you can just stay at home and order pizza every day for a week (because love is all you need) but we have at least 5 amazing run-away ideas for a great honeymoon.

1. Paris

This may sound a little bit too much of a mainstream, but Paris is by no doubt one of the most popular honeymoon destinations among the newly-weds from all over the world. The city is full of love and has a lot to offer to the couples. You can go to the Louvre to see the most romantic canvas of the old masters, climb the Eiffel tower holding hands or just walk along the narrow streets, have fresh croissants for breakfast and buy your wedding presents on the Champ Elysees. But, actually, France is not only about Paris. If you have enough time, you can also take a trip to the South France where lavender fields make a perfect spot for pictures and create the unforgettable atmosphere. The perfect plan then will sound like a couple of days in Paris, a week to travel along the south part of the country and then, maybe, a trip to the ocean?

2. Maldives

When we think about Maldives, blue water, white sand and small beautiful villa on the remote ocean shore are what come to mind. And this already sound like a perfect honeymoon idea. No sightseeing, no social interactions, just two of you drinking papaya juice somewhere on the private beach. And if you get bored, there are always the craziest options like underwater nightclub or nighttime diving. This kind of holiday will probably cost a pretty penny but you will never forget the trip. Most of the decent hotels in this part of the world have special offers for the honeymooners so you can, at least, expect the bottle of champagne and fresh flowers in your room.

3. Las Vegas

If you are not a romantic kind of a couple and just want to have fun on your honeymoon, Vegas is what you need. The best casinos, hotels and entertainment spots of the world are waiting for the just-married couples on the Las Vegas Strip. That’s the place where you both can drink champagne for breakfast and don’t feel guilty. Online casino fans can finally go offline and try playing roulette, blackjack or various slot machines. And your luck is probably doubled when there are two of you! And there is always something to do when you get tired of gambling and shopping. For instance, you can take a copter-trip to Grand Canyon and spend a day watching one of the most spectacular natural interests ever. Or rent a car and go for a ride to the Death Valley which may sound not too romantic but is still worth seeing.

4. Italy

Italy is a country full of cool honeymoon destinations. You can start with romantic channels of Venice (they call it the Bride of the Sea for a reason), then move to the historical places of Rome and end with the classy shopping in Milan. But you’d better buy the one-size-bigger clothes since you will definitely not be able to skip tasty Italian food. Tons of pizza, pasta and gelato, new wine and lots of sun make a perfect combination for a nice week or two after your wedding. If you want to see the most of the Italy, you can rent a car a make a trip all over the country or, if you are short of time, take a plane to move faster from one point to another.

5. Dubai

The United Arab Emirates are not very popular among the newly-weds and this is a big mistake. Dubai is a very exotic and a unique place which can be a great travel destination both for a honeymoon or just for a holiday if you are not afraid of the really hot weather. For the last few decades, Dubai has turned from the hot empty desert to the absolutely luxurious city full of expensive hotels, restaurants and shopping spots. Here you can easily combine the beach holiday with the unique adventures such as camel ride or watching the fishes in the biggest aquarium in the world.

Wherever you decide to go, the best thing to do is to plan your trip in advance, book all the tickets and hotels so you can completely relax and think of nothing but two of you. May your amazing honeymoon trip be the beginning of the amazing married life and a great adventure!

How to Make Your Wedding Memorable

A formal picture of the bride in her bridal dress and makeup, which is taken a few days before the wedding or sometimes just before the wedding ceremony is known as a bridal portrait. A great bridal portrait is one that accentuates the natural beauty of the bride and captures her happiness and radiance. While there are some modern brides who forgo having a bridal portrait clicked; there are many who would like to have a beautiful bridal portrait to treasure for the rest of their life. The most important element in getting your bridal portrait done is to decide on a competent photographer. The best way to do this is to plan around six to four months ahead of the wedding and make a list of wedding photographers. Review their work carefully and then choose a photographer whose work you like and who you feel comfortable with. Once you have booked a photographer, it is time to concentrate on how to have the best bridal portrait taken that reflects your personality. Here we will discuss some of the best and most creative bridal photography ideas.

Ideas for Bridal Portraits

Whether you choose to have your bridal portrait taken months before the wedding or just after the wedding ceremony, there are ways in which you can make your portrait look spectacular.

Pay Attention to Your Dress, Hair and Makeup
The most important aspect of a bridal portrait is the bridal dress, hairstyle and makeup. If you are having your bridal photograph taken a few weeks before the wedding, then make sure that you dress up in a similar fashion as you intend to dress on your wedding day. Of course it goes without saying that you are going to wear the wedding gown for the photo session. But try to co ordinate the other details of your outfit completely. For the bridal portrait to look genuine and classy, it has to reflect your inner joy and apprehension of the matrimony. Once you slip inside the wedding gown and complete you look with shoes, romantic hairstyle and soft makeup, the picture taken will look natural and beautiful.

Choose a Picturesque and Interesting Location
One of the best bridal portrait ideas is to get your picture taken in a place that has scenic beauty. A location that has a lot of greenery, interesting architectural history or even your old school or university are ideal. Make sure that you choose your location carefully as it will form the background of the portrait and you do not want it to detract from the beauty of the portrait. On the other extremity, the background should not be overly bright or ornate that it attracts attention to it rather than focus it you. You can also choose an indoor location like a grand hotel or an old museum that boasts of a unique architecture. Just make sure that there is enough lighting so that your photographer will have no trouble in clicking a great picture.

Be Smart While Posing
Many photographers like to take candid pictures of the bride for the wedding portrait. While that might work for wedding photographs, it is best to pose for bridal portraits so that your natural elegance and grace is reflected. While posing it is always best to stand with your body facing three fourth to the photographer, with your weight placed on one foot to look slim and chic. Ask the photographer to click many pictures in different portrait poses so that you have a wide selection of photographs to choose from.

A bridal portrait can become a treasured sentimental keepsake not only for the bride but for her entire family. You are creating a memory of a lifetime, so make sure that your bridal portrait reflects your personality.
