Wedding bride groom

The BIG Wedding Day 😀
“Wedding” literally meant the purchase of a bride for breeding purposes. 🙂
The word wedding comes from the root meaning to gamble or wager. The Anglo-Saxon word “wedd” meant that the groom would vow to marry the woman, but it also meant that the groom paid the bride’s father. This is believed why it is still customary for the father-of-the-bride to “give away” his daughter.

What means marriage … to me…? Hmm… Marriage to me is a partneship, a lifelong commitment to support and be there for each other no matter what… It means trusting, giving, security in each others love and support; it means always having someone to talk to, laugh with, confide in, and work together with… 🙂

Our Wedding Day… 😀 I am not sure how do i begin to describe this day? The day…was just perfect for us, a sunny day, perfect for starting the most unforgettable day 🙂 It was the best day of our lives, and it was indeed the Best Day Ever!

The week leading up to the wedding was a mixed bag of emotions… excitement, laughs, nerves, stress … pretty much, but most of all a lot of love. 🙂
It was very important to us, from the get go, that everything would be kept simple, classic… with a kind of vintage mood… and that the focus of the day would be about celebrating with our loved ones. Our photographers, Lavinia and Patrick – C’est Lavi Photography, really captured that feeling in their beautiful photos.

My only advice to anyone planning their wedding: don’t stress the small stuff, and savour every single moment. It goes by so quickly… people tell you that, but you won’t realise until you’re truly in it… 🙂

Nimeni nu le poate lua femeilor cel mai frumos vis (chiar daca visul imbraca uneori forma unei ambitii sau a unui pariu stupid): Acela de a fi… Mireasa.
Marturisim sau nu, ne place genul “romance”, ne plac povestile de iubire, ne stergem discret o lacrima din coltul ochilor sau oftam adanc vizionand un film de acest gen. Si, oricat ne-ar ironiza barbatii, nu vom renunta sa visam la rochia … alba??!! 😀 roz?? 🙂 de mireasa, la tot ritualul specific pregatirii unui asemenea eveniment. Este dreptul nostru din toate timpurile.
Gama de ritualuri nuptiale este foarte bogata, variind de la zona la zona si, daca vrei sa nu scapi nimic, este cert ca nu te descurci fara un consultant de specialitate (pentru a fi sigura ca nu sari peste nici un eventual moment de senzatie, despre care sa poti povesti prietenelor, urmasilor…).
Sa respecti traditia si chiar sa redescoperi obiceiuri care de care mai putin stiute, inseamna sa ai o nunta trendy, o nunta ca-n povesti.

Este cert ca nuntile cu surle si trambite nu sunt doar un trend, un curent recent, un val trecator. In toate timpurile (de pe vremea cand fata era furata pe bune de la parinti, pana azi, cand e furata de gasca de prieteni in noaptea nuntii pentru cateva sticle de whisky), nuntile zgomotoase au fost nuntile cele mai reusite.
Aproape in fiecare casa exista dovada: si pentru bunici si pentru mame, cele mai valoroase amintiri sunt pozele de la nunta, bucatile de voal, asa zisele ‘marturii’, pastrate toate intr-un sertar…
Pozelor ingalbenite le-a urmat caseta video, Cd-ul, DVD-ul si … tehnica ne va sprijini mereu sa ducem peste timpuri aceste marturii ale momentului respectiv… moment de glorie.

Numai ca in spatele fiecarei nunti, aparent perfecte se afla ceva ce nu toata lumea stie, se afla o poveste, ca o adevarata proba de foc a unui cuplu. Si cand vine vorba despre cuplurile celebre despre care scrie presa, fiecare amanunt este senzational, orice detaliu poate fi o adevarata ‘bomba’, un moment memorabil, despre care poti vorbi zile, saptamani, ani la rand…
