If you have been invited to a Muslim wedding and you are not sure what to expect, keep reading this comprehensive guide to avoid any surprise. Find below the most important facts:

  • Muslim weddings are held in a Mosque and before the Imam (religious and sometimes political leader). The tradition dictates that all preparations related to the bride’s wedding day, such as clothing or accessories, should not be seen by the groom before the wedding ceremony or it will be bad luck.
  • Islam allows men to marry Christian or Jewish women because those religions have a holy book, however, Muslim women are not allowed to marry a man who is not Muslim.
  • The marriage contract has to be certified by the groom and his tutor—known as Wali—and at the ceremony, the Wali dedicates some words to the couple.
  • The provisions and laws are contained in their holy book called the Koran which is read during the ceremony.
  • The traditional dowry is not what most people believe. It is a gift from the future husband to his wife-to-be; for instance, an engagement ring, earrings, among others.
  • The couple must appear before the “sheikh” (a kind of Islamic magistrate) with three witnesses to perform the marriage contract.
  • According to Islamic law, after the ceremony, the couple is legally and spiritually bound; nevertheless, the bride returns home to plan the wedding celebration which happens one or two weeks after.
  • A Muslim wedding usually lasts from three days to a week.
  • The first night’s celebration is exclusive for women. The bride wears a kaftan and has henna marks on her hands and feet to keep the evil spirits away. Each symbol drawn has a meaning. The bride also enjoys a Hamman which is a relaxing steam bath that purifies her. That night, she is escorted by other women with candles, incense, chants and dances that allude to her beauty and to the process she is about to experience.
  • The mother of the groom, hands a tray with keys, bread and milk. The key represents the welcoming to the new family and the food represents abundance.
  • From the second night and on, there is a festival for all family and friends. The celebration depicts all the Muslim tradition and folklore.
  • Unlike other religions, in Muslim weddings, women open the dance!

If you have already thought of decorating every single space in your wedding such as the banquets, tables, chairs, roof, and so on. One more pace you should take into account is the aisle… the way to the altar. Walk to the man of your dreams through a magical passage.

When people think about decorating, they usually forget about the floor, or, they use a red carpet for the aisle; however, more and more couples are now choosing to decorate the floor with cute, original and unique ideas perfect for any bride. Some ideas would suit especially well if the ceremony is outdoors, some others to decorate the church hall and others are versatile. Let’s check them out!

Carpets

The safest choice for the aisle is the traditional red carpet, but why not risking and getting away from the conventional by being bold and using other colors. What about white, green, pink, blue… the color you want to use will be just perfect. Analyze the decoration of your wedding and the theme so the color matches. If you want something even more innovative, you may print your names or initials in the carpet or you could build a road with using carpet for the path to the altar, choose to print the names or initials of the couple in it or you could even build a road with different kilim rugs if you are holding a boho wedding.

Petals and more Petals

Embellishing the aisle using petals is the trendiest option these years. There are so many different options in which you can decorate the way to the altar by using petals and create a magical atmosphere that you will be awed by the results. You can choose to scatter petals without a specific order. Try a monochromatic style or combine different colors as well as types of flowers.

Now, if you prefer a more organized style, fill the hall with petals of the same color or create a drawing if you want a slightly more orderly style, chooses to completely fill the hall with petals of a single color or create a degraded drawing with them. Petals are super flexible for decoration because they allow you to create beautiful figures and make your way to the altar a fairylike experience.

The Edges of the Hall

If you are not attracted to the idea of walking on petals, you can also use them for the roadside or play with different types of floral arrangements and place them on the floor. If what you want is to light the road, use beautiful lamps or candles inside cages and place them on the sides of the aisle.  This idea will be super cute if you are getting married at night.

The edges could also be decorated in accordance to your wedding’s theme. Use straw or bales for a rustic theme; palms and exotic flowers for a beach team or incredible floral arrangements for an elegant and chic wedding.

There are so many options to decorate the aisle, choose the one you like the most so you feel in heaven when you give the expected “I do.”

10 Instrumental Songs for Walking Down the Aisle

The wedding entrance where the ceremony is held at, is undoubtedly the most anticipated moment of a wedding and it definitely creates a romantic atmosphere while fills the guests expectation; therefore, it is important to take your time and carefully choose the perfect song for that moment when all eyes will be on you.  

Choosing the wedding ceremony music may simple; yet, it is not. Our recommendation is not to wait until the last moment to decide for a song or you might end up regretting your choice. Without a doubt, walking down the aisle is a tremendously special and emotional moment, which is why it is so important to identify what music you want to be played. We have created a list of 10 instrumental songs that are perfect for that unique moment:

  • The first proposal is the classic Felix Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March” in C major. It may be too classic for some people. However, it may be dreamy—and a must—for some other.
  • We continue with another classic: Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major. It is a very suitable melody for the wedding entrance due to its romantic and delicate nature. It is very used in religious weddings.
  • A very emotional song is “The Moment” by saxophonist Kenny G. It makes of any wedding ceremony a magic and passionate event.
  • A song that really gives Goosebumps from start to end is the instrumental version of “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri.
  • “May it be” by Enya in its instrumental variety is another song that will perfectly suit your entrance. It is much more emotional when played with flute.
  • A song that works perfectly to walk down the aisle is “The Rose” by Amanda McBroom but in its instrumental version. There is a great one played by violinist Andre Rieu.

Soundtracks are a great choice for wedding ceremonies. Usually they are instrumental and appropriate for the entrance since they are emotional and inspiring. Here are our favorite ones:

  • “The Main Title” of The Cider House Rules is a sweet, slow paced and romantic song.
  • “The Ludlows” of Legends of the Fall. Who didn’t fall in love with the movie and that song?
  •  A very emotional song is “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” of the Lion King Movie. Especially when performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London.
  • Finally, a romantic, emotional and inspiring song is “Married Life” from Up.

What do you think? Which one do you like the most?

Fall Wedding Inspirations and Tips

Fall wedding boardAs we enter into the month of September with summer closing down, we can be excited about at least one thing: Fall weddings are gorgeous! With fall weddings you can use rich and warm colors. A step in the rustic direction -which is a very popular trend — is never a wrong move in the fall. Plus, it is the season of change, making it the perfect choice for a wedding.

Fall Wedding Flowers

With fall weddings, your flowers can be bigger and darker with natural tones taking the lead. This is, however, a season where those popular succulent flower choices look a little less at home.film Fifty Shades Darker online

The desired look or feeling is comparable to how you would feel looking up into the bronze and gold leaves -with that hint of green — watching the sunlight trickle through. Rich reds, purples, and oranges of the burnt orange variety are great color choices when using those changing leaves as an inspiration. Also, when deciding on your wedding colors,  keep in mind that gold accents will amp up this season’s natural beauty.

Rustic Cake Topper

For your wedding accessories, items like burlap table runners, wedding sparklers, and rustic wedding cake toppers will really fit into this season. If you are wanting to do a unity candle or sand vase as part of your ceremony, for fall, the candle is more ideal. Also, leaf designs done right can really make your fall wedding look absolutely perfect; you probably just don’t want everything to have that big maple leaf on it!

Trevor and Tori met in 2012 while attending the same church. Many of their friends instinctively knew that they would be a good match and continually tried to set them up. After a several failed attempts, they gave in to their friends’ pushing prodding. Even then they thought going on a date would be primarily a fun night out and completely social. To their surprise, they found themselves inseparable after just one date.

They were engaged in October of 2013 and had only 3 months to plan their wedding!

“Trevor took me to a John Mayer concert at the Hollywood Bowl. All night I kept having this feeling that he was going to propose. By the time the concert was over, my brain was fried from thinking he was or wasn’t going to propose. On the way home, he took me to a vantage point overlooking Orange County where a picture of us, candles, succulent flowers, and some sparkling cider was set up. He got down on one knee and BAM!”

On January 3rd of 2014 this sweet couple was married in the LDS Temple in Newport. Following the private and quiet ceremony, they proceeded to the beautiful venue of Hillcrest Terrace of Fullerton. Their gorgeous bohemian chic wedding was full of laughs,elegance, and pure joy.

1st Wedding Anniversary Traditions

 

Wedding Anniversary

The Paper Anniversary

If you didn’t know yet, your first wedding anniversary is also known as the paper anniversary. Wedding anniversaries are known after what gift it is traditional to give your spouse, so the first anniversary is the paper anniversary because it is customary to gift each other with a paper gift. No, this does not mean hand your spouse a piece of printer paper and be done with it!

The first year of marriage is considered the adjustment year. You are adjusting to living together, sharing bank accounts, responsibilities, budgets, etc. You may or may not be financially secure. The paper gift plays off of all of this. It may seem limiting, but this is where creativity can blossom…and it can help your better-half who may or may not have a clue what to do!
