Charlotte's Favourite Things! ~ Music !

Ever get goosebumps watching romantic movies where the happy couple dances the night away to some sappy love song? Me too! We would all love our lives to play out to an amazing playlist but sometimes that doesn't always happen. Well at least for your wedding day, it can be!

 

Since music is like a second language to me, I wanted to share some of my favourite love songs for you and your beloved to dance to on your special day!

If you're more of a modern bride and like to create some of your own traditions, then here is a quick list of some of the most romantic love songs of this generation.  

 

"All Of Me" by John Legend could be the most popular love song of this past year and is a perfect example of his love for his one and only. This song is a pretty straight forward love letter to his wife explaining how love is an 'all or nothing' game. Through the good and the bad, J.L. has made it very clear that you should be in it for the long haul. We all have flaws and we all stumble every once in a while, the key is to find someone who will share those flaws and look at them as perfections instead.  

 

Ms. Christina Perri wrote one of the most beautiful piano ballads of this past year, that makes me cry every time. "A Thousand Years" describes how scary it can be to fall in love, but if you're with the right person it can be the easiest thing you will ever do. Walking down the aisle to this song would be a dream!


"God Gave Me You" by Blake Shelton is also a tear jerk-er as it was made for Mr. Shelton's beautiful fiance at the time, Miranda Lambert. She is actually in the beginning of the music video telling Blake how excited she is to get married to him in just a few hours... talk about adorable! This song is for the country-lovers out there who are eager to walk down the aisle to their best friend, confidante and true love with its beautifully romantic lyrics.  

If you're more of a traditional bride and have always had a connection with the classics here are a few suggestions to incorporate the older romantics into your wedding day!  A timeless song that is the epitome of finding love is Etta James' "At Last". Mrs. James really knew how to capture the feeling of falling in love in this classic love song and really makes you feel like you're right there with her. Every time you listen to this song it's hard not to picture your loved one and imagine the bright future ahead of you both.  


Can't help falling in love? Neither could Elvis! This soulful and delicate love song takes us all back to the first time we looked into your spouse's beautiful eyes and makes us feel all gooey inside. Why not feel that on your wedding day with this classic serenade by Mr. Presley himself.  

Another traditional but never over-played song that brings us all back a few years is "L-O-V-E" by the famous Nat King Cole. This song perfectly describes how love puts a little 'pep-in-our-step'. It's hard not to tap your foot to this heart-filled ensemble as everyone around starts to feel the love too.  

Whatever your choice of wedding song to dance to, make sure its describes how remarkable your person is to you. Sometimes we aren't so good with words so these songs can help you along with sharing your true commitment and love to your special someone.  

Keep Up The Happy Planning!

Your Day and Their Day

Have your parents been there for most of the wedding planning? Have they been there for the cake-tastings, finding the 'perfect' dress, and everything else under the moon? Even though all of this planning puts the "thank-you's" under the rug most of the time, here are a few suggestions to show your parents that you really do appreciate their love and support.

 

Gifts for parents of the bride and groom normally don't get a whole lot of attention until close to the end of the wedding planning, which makes it hard to show your appreciation for the people who helped you get to be the person you are today. Spread the love with some of these ideas on how to get that message across!


A great idea to show that you care is by getting a few handkerchiefs stitched with a meaningful message to your loving parents. These simple words will bring tears to their eyes and also be very useful when it does!

  

Old Photos of you as a child with your parents is also another great idea to tug at their heartstrings and remind them that you will always be their special little someone even if they think you're growing up too fast.

 

Pendants and necklaces that capture the meaning of 'forever' will help your parents feel like you will always be with them no matter how far away you may be. No matter the distance, a parent will always be a parent and a child will always be their child.

  

Lastly, a great idea for the actual wedding day is to get something engraved for them to wear on your special day so they feel like they are just as much included in the whole process as you are. Remember, this day is just as special to them as it is to you!

 

Until Next Time,

Afzia's Favorite Things!

With the extremely "winter" weather we have been having here...I thought it would be a nice thing to focus your thoughts on something a little more pretty.

One of my favourite things is just looking at beautiful flowers!  They have the ability to brighten someone's day and put a smile on their face ...in an instant 

Why not brighten someone's day today?

It doesn't take much.

 

Stay warm!

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Re-Used!

Some brides have this idea of keeping their wedding dresses for years later to either pass down to a loved one or to just keep in the closet for a rainy day. However, if you're not one of these brides and you don't necessarily have any interest in storing your dress for the years to come, keep on reading! We have some great ideas for you to keep the small memories of your beautiful dress without it taking up so much of our precious closet space ('cause let's be honest... we can never have enough! )


Since your wedding day was such a magical memory you will treasure forever, why not re-purpose it for the people you love? Some brides have taken their rainy Sunday afternoons to do a little crafting with their old wedding dresses by making them into blankets, or sheets for their future baby's room. Or even a beautiful dress or piece of clothing for you or your young one to wear.

If you are feeling extra creative you can even go as far as make your wedding gown into a beautiful cover for your baby's crib/ cradle. Precious is definitely the word to describe this idea! 

 

If you're thinking of a way to re-purpose your dress that will last even longer in the family than a baby's crib, than how about make your gown into a few accent pillows, or maybe even getting them made into a bed set for you and your special someone! How romantic!

 

Pendants and necklaces are always a great way to go to carry a small part of that magical day with you everywhere, and this idea is easy to pass down to your kids one day instead of giving them the full burden of a dress.

Another wonderful idea if you are the festive type is to re-purpose your wedding gown into holiday decorations for that time of year! If you celebrate Christmas this is great idea for making stockings or a tree skirt out of your timeless dress.

 

Whatever idea you choose, it will feel amazing to always be reminded of that special day and to look back on those enchanting moments knowing that there are so many more to come!

 

Until Next Time,

 

Charlotte
