Using Silk Flowers - Should I?Written by Ginger Ruoff
Many of silk flowers available for bridal bouquets today look so real only bride knows for sure whether they are. Using silk flowers in bridal bouquet may not be for every bride, but many are taking a second look at advantages.
One of best reasons for choosing silk flowers for wedding bouquet is that beauty of flowers will remain same for many tomorrows as it looks today. Too often with a fresh cut bouquet, saving it means drying bouquet. If you are not adept at drying flowers, they may even end up with mold spots. Even if they are dried appropriately, colors will be faded. You can get a fresh cut bouquet freeze dried to perpetuate true colors, but it must be done by a professional and can be expensive. Silk flowers will not wilt, mold, or fade on your wedding day or over years that pass.
If you choose to have a silk flower wedding, you can plan and order your bouquets far in advance of wedding. Most brides are very busy in month before wedding. Having to coordinate with a florist to have fresh cut flowers delivered to wedding venue is just one more pressure point on countdown. Also, if fresh cut flowers do not look like you envisioned, when you get them it is often too late to change anything. When you order your silk flower bouquets as far in advance as six months before wedding, you have plenty of time to ask for changes or to order extra pieces if other honored guests appear on your list.
Keeping A Marriage RomanticWritten by Alan Detwiler
My belief is that most relationship problems should be given less attention ... how much do you want to stir up bottom muck? A couple will be happier if they pay attention to good things instead of being concerned with problems.
A romantic relationship happens because of hopes and dreams a couple has for a happy life together. The relationship will be pleasant and rewarding as long as you pay attention to what inspires those hopes and dreams.
To get most from a romantic relationship build upon what makes your relationship worthwhile and wonderful.
Nothing is perfect --
Don't expect a perfect relationship. That happens only in fairy tales. Problems will occur. You will get hurt. Being too concerned with problems will stop you from paying enough attention to what is good in relationship.
If perfection is goal, you will compare how relationship is now to what you think it should be. You will be continually disappointed. Making relationship better should be goal. If love happens, it will be based on believing that both of you can continue to build a good relationship.
Your attitude should signal other person that you will try to patiently work through each other's shortcomings. It won't be easy. Being tolerant and non-condemning is a challenge. But consciously making an effort to be tolerant goes a long way.
