Ideas For Wedding Proposals on Valentine’s Day

There is no doubt that Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year. It is the day when lovers from all over the world plan their most memorable date ever. It is not really surprising to hear about people who would pick this day to propose to their long-time girlfriends. But how should you do it? Here are interesting suggestions:

Propose over dinner

Dinner Proposal

Dinner Proposal

This is the most common way of staging a marriage proposal. But you can always make yours unique or different by integrating your own elements into the set-up. Think of something clever to place the ring: on top of a single rose bud, in her glass of wine, as the main decoration of the cake for dessert. Be sure to go some place where serenading can be done upon request.

On the theatre stage

If you’re very sure that your girlfriend or boyfriend will say yes to your marriage proposal, then let all other people witness it. Talk to the theatre manager so you can have a microphone and some romantic sounds playing in the background when you pop the question.

At sunrise

Sunrise Proposal

Sunrise Proposal

Invite your girlfriend to follow a nature trail early one morning. When you get to the spot, tell her about the beautiful sunrise she’s about to see. Then kneel on your knees just at the right time, then offer her the ring. This is also the perfect set-up if you want to plan a garden wedding at sunrise. Alternately, you can pick sunset for this proposal suggestion instead.

Recreate your first date, then propose

Your girlfriend will be floored away and will immediately say yes if you’re able to meticulously recreate your very first date – down to its very intricate details. The only difference now is the part where you’ll make that romantic wedding proposal. If you do it right, this is also going to be your most memorable Valentine’s Day ever.

There are so many ideas and suggestions to make your proposal special and memorable.  Put lots of thought into the setting and theme and I am sure you can’t go wrong.

Bride and groom want the flowers to reflect the beauty, the best photographer they can afford to record this wonderful occasion, food that is flavourful, and the best in attire for bride and groom, as well as wedding guests.

It’s not unusual for the bride and groom to specify the dress code as a tux for the men and beautiful gowns for the women. To go along those beautiful gowns, the wedding shoes must be perfect for the occasion.

Most weddings last a while which means those women in attendance want evening shoes that are beautiful as well as comfortable, heels that are adequate, perhaps providing some height, not awkward, just right.

Wedding Diet and Fitness Plan Before Your Big Day

The worst thing that a bride can experience on her wedding day is not fitting perfectly into her wedding gown. This is why a diet and fitness plan should be a part of her daily routine, weeks before the big day. It is important to keep that body in shape despite the stress associated with the meticulous wedding preparations. Here are some wedding diet and fitness suggestions for your big day:

Watch what you eat

Since there’s going to be a very wonderful celebration up ahead, salivating on your most favourite food is not really suggested. Instead, just refrain from eating at least three food items that you consume in huge amounts regularly. Some examples are fizzy drinks, chocolates, and pasta. Substitute these for water, carrot sticks, and salad instead.  Keep a food diary and you will soon see where the calories are coming from.

Work out an hour every other day

Weights Workout

Weights Workout

Working out is very necessary. Doing so burns off the food that you consume for the last two days. Set up a regular schedule at the gym and never miss a session.  Try and buddy up with a friend.  That way you will motivate each other and keep going until you reach your goal.

Walk instead of taking the car

Since some of your wedding preparations would require you to go out a lot, try to walk instead of taking the car if your errands are a few blocks away.  Take the stairs instead of the lift.  Run up the stairs instead of walking. You will be surprised by how much calories you will burn.

Pay special attention to your arms and waist

You surely want to look wonderful in your wedding gown. So work out with free weights or a barbell and do some crunches during your free time. Spend fifteen minutes each day doing simple arm and waist exercises at home. Its impact will go a very long way.  You will be surprise at how quickly your shape will change for the better.  Feeling the burn is a great way to burn calories faster.  Aching muscles carry on burning calories even after you have finish your exercises.  By using weights you can turn your body into a fat and calorie burning machine.

Don’t let the stress of the preparation veer you away from your diet and fitness plan

Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks

While preparing for your special wedding day, it’s easy to skip a meal or two and then binge later on. Binge eating is caused by a drop in blood sugar levels. This is a very bad dietary habit that you should watch out for. No matter how busy your day was, be sure that you consume three meals in the right amounts every day.  Carry healthy snacks in your bag to stop your sugar levels dropping.  Great healthy snack ideas: sunflower seeds, raisins, nuts, carrot sticks, grapes, bananas the list is endless.  If you really need a chocolate hit try Jaffa cakes as they have only 45 calories per cake.

5 Popular Wedding Themes Including Wedding Shoes

Are you still looking for the perfect wedding theme? Read on and find out the five most popular wedding themes for this year. You might just pick the one that will best suit your taste.

Vintage Wedding

Vintage Wedding

Vintage Wedding

If you think that an old, rustic theme for your wedding will make it a classic, then go for this theme. This one is perfect for autumn ceremonies as well.  Vintage Weddings are becoming so popular and can be planned designed around a small budget. Arrive in a vintage car, wear vintage gowns, and hold the ceremony in the countryside. Have flowers spilling out of jugs and any containers you can get your hand on.

A beautiful lace wedding dress and pretty low heeled wedding shoes, with lots of pearls and antique jewellery, would be perfect for this theme.

Hang candles and lights on tree branches and decorate with pearls, ribbons or clear gems.

If you are lucky enough to know someone with a large garden, you will save on the venue hire.  Also, if you are on a tight budget have you considered afternoon tea for your wedding breakfast, with cake stands and cucumber sandwiches.

If you use the vintage wedding theme, you have to put a lot of focus on the ‘something old’ part of the adage. The ideas are endless….

Cherry blossom wedding theme

Cherry Blossom Wedding Theme

Cherry Blossom Wedding Theme

The Cherry Blossom is my all time favourite wedding theme. You know how a cherry blossom looks like – small, pretty, and pink. So recreate that in every piece and detail of your wedding. Using the different shades of pink as your motif, use decorations and designs with the cherry blossom flowers depicted on it. And yes, they should also appear on the cake and the wedding invitation cards too.  

Rose flower wedding shoes would be the perfect touch to match the wedding theme.  Or why not be daring and go for cerise pink wedding shoes.

Why not have Rose wine for that gorgeous pink drink during the wedding breakfast, to carry on with the pink theme. The thoughts and ideas are endless…

Outdoor wedding theme

Outdoor wedding theme

Outdoor wedding theme

This goes for brides who opt for a garden wedding. The best representations of the great outdoors are flowers, leaves, birds, and everything else nice and vibrant. Pick a colour that would represent your theme best. For example, yellow is perfect for summer, pink is for spring, orange for fall, and blue is for winter.  If you decide on an outdoor wedding in England, then consider the ever changing weather and include a marquee for cover and decorate with ribbons and flowers.

Beach wedding theme

Beach Wedding Theme

Beach Wedding Theme

A lot of brides long to be married on a beach in time with the setting or the rising of the sun. That is also the reason why this theme is very popular. If you pick the beach theme, then the perfect motif is blue or have you considered silver! The best decorations are sea shells, corals, starfish and the likes.  

There is no dress code for a beach wedding you can wear a traditional wedding gown or a floaty summer dress with summer sandals, the decision is entirely yours.  If you are worried about the sand opt for foot decorations, such as ribbons and flowers entwined around you feet and ankle or if you like the idea of sparkle there are plenty of foot jewellery options available. Pretty wedding sandals would also be an option for the beach wedding theme.

Red rose wedding theme

Red Rose Wedding Theme

Red Rose Wedding Theme

The red, black, and white theme for a wedding is very popular in the world over. And it is best executed with a bouquet of red roses prominently figuring on the isles of the ceremony hall and on the tables at the wedding reception.

Red wedding shoes would be a dramatic touch to the red rose wedding theme and would show your daring side.

Weddings are a special time in the lives of couples, the lifelong commitment, the pomp and the beauty.  Those special guests, family and friends in attendance, and a great send off for the couple. These special occasions call for the best, the best in flowers, the best in accommodations, the best in atmosphere, and of course, the best dress.

What bride does not want to look her best on this very special occasion? That includes the gown, the beautiful veil, the exquisite gloves, and the very best in wedding shoes.

When looking for shoes for that special occasion, the lady wants the best. The shoes should fit and match perfectly.

You can choose high heeled wedding shoes, as long as those heels are not too high. The emphasis should be on comfort and wear ability. You will be wearing them the whole day.

Silver Wedding Shoes

Silver Wedding Shoes

You want your shoes to match the wedding dress. That means right colour combinations. If you’re going to wear a white wedding dress, you may want to avoid outlandish colours for your wedding shoes. Silver wedding shoes match up nicely with a white wedding gown. Depending on the gown you use, ivory wedding shoes look nice as well.  But of course if you want to make a statement, then why not add a splash of colour.

As the bride, this is your special day. You want wedding shoes in the style that you love. It’s personal. You want to take plenty of time to get that perfect style for you.

Wedding Makeup Ideas


There’s absolutely no way around it: the bride should be the most beautiful woman on her wedding day. And so, the most fabulous makeup for her is in order. If your wedding is coming up and you don’t want to put the fate of your look entirely in the hands of your makeup artist, here are wedding makeup ideas that you can check out together:

Subtle, neutral, and soft

Neutral Wedding Makeup

Neutral Wedding Makeup

This suggestion is for you if you’re the type who wants to look back at your wedding pictures without regrets. It is also for those who want to sport the aura of a glowing bride, instead of looking like a Barbie doll. However, this is recommended only to women who are blessed with a natural blush on their cheeks. Simply use a second-skin foundation, a pink lipstick, and the subtlest eye shade. You’ll look great at a garden wedding with this.

The strong eye makeup

For those with a rather pale skin, spruce up your eye makeup with bold colours such as lilac, lavender, and similar strong shades. Don’t forget to use just the right amount of eyeliner and mascara to complete the effect.

The vintage look

If you have planned a vintage wedding, then a vintage makeup is in order. You have to focus on your lashes and your lips here. Use a bright red lipstick to go with some false lashes. And be sure to add that thick winged tip.

The smoky eyes makeup

Highlight your bridal beauty with a pair of smoky eyes. You can always use the usual black shades to get the desired effect. But since this is a special day, try to experiment with metallic shades instead. Once you have captured the ideal look, everybody at the wedding won’t be able to help staring at you.
