After searching for cars all weekend we had finally found the choices we were most interested in. We began not certain what car we actually wanted. We had seen cars we liked on the road but we had not actually shopped for them. We had not bought a new car in many years and were uncertain what all was offered. As we began shopping we realized just how far cars had advanced and we were very intrigued. It was so exciting to see what one car had to offer over the other. Eventually, after a lot of really fun test driving we had narrowed our choices. Now all that was left was to go online and do an insurance comparison. We knew we could see the major insurance companies packages and pricing for our needs online. We knew we would need cheap car insurance in Tennessee to off set the car payments that we would be taking on by buying a new car. It was fast and easy to see what was offered. We could see what our insurance payments would be which helped to make our decision when we coupled that with the car payment cost. We wanted our new car not to be such a cost burden that we would regret our decision. By checking out the insurance cost ahead of time we were able to see the varied cost of the insurance for each vehicle. This helped us in making our decision on which car would be the smartest choice. It is so exciting to ride around in our new car. We love the ride and the gas mileage can not be beat. With the rising cost of fuel that has to be a concern and a factor in the purchase of any vehicle as well. We have been able to take many small trips since the purchase of our new car. We are looking forward to a really fun vacation this summer filled with a lot of road side attractions.
I recently attended a wedding with some of the most tasteful wedding
I’ve ever seen. I’m making a slight pun here, as the favors
were in fact edible items. There was a delectable variety too. I saw
cupcakes that had looked moist and sweet, I saw some prime cut steaks
(frozen of course), and I
saw some bottles of wine with impressive
dates on them. I think, I’m not
sure, but I think I saw someone walk
out with a full shrimp ring. I myself
was rewarded with an amazing
plate of homemade chunky chocolate brownies. I
shared them with my
family because there were simply too many for myself to
gaining an unhealthy amount of weight. I’m glad I did share
though; the family loved me for it.
Many people are looking for physical objects that can symbolize their love and
union during different types of ceremonies, particularly wedding ceremonies.
There are many ideas that can work for a unity ceremony. One great idea that is
becoming increasingly popular is the unity candle. A unity candle is simply a
candle that has a number of wicks that is the same as the number of people to be
united. For a wedding ceremony, a unity candle would generally have two wicks;
however, there can be more if there are children involved. This candle can be
lit immediately after the couple has recited their vows and exchanged rings. The
significance of the candle is generally explained right before it is lit. Each
person has his or her own small candle, and then at the same time, they use
their candle to light their respective wicks on the unity candle. This
symbolizes how their lives are going to burn close together from today
“Look at all the stuff you have in these cupboards! A dozen wine glasses, champagne glasses, whiskey tumblers, pint glasses…anyone looking in here would think you guys were alcoholics!” As I continue to rummage through my parents cupboards, something catches my eye in the back, “Do you really need to keep your wedding flutes? When was the last time they even saw the light of day?”
My mother gives me a withering look. “Now Elizabeth. Do I go through your cupboards when I’m in your home? I thought I raised you better than that! And for your information, yes, we do need those flutes. If nothing else, they remind me of our wedding day.”
Suitably chastised, I close the cupboard door. I suppose it really is none of my business.
The whole church was doing its best to keep from laughing. I could see the little girls prancing down the aisle, happy to have the attention of so many people; their flower girl baskets lay forgotten at the doors of the church. The maid of honor (one of the girl’s mother, I believe) frantically runs out, trying to get them in hand. After a couple of tense minutes, the organ starts up again. Chastised, the two little girls perform their duty admirably, and the rest of the wedding party starts entering the building to proceed down the aisle. A few of the younger bridesmaids are still giggling behind their hands. The maid of honor is wearing a weary look of resignation. I can’t help but feel a little sorry for her.
I love having my own vineyard. I do a lot of business in the local area. I’ve considered expanding the operation, and getting my product stocked in liquor stores, but I think I prefer being a boutique winery. A lot of our orders coming in these days are from wine wedding favors. I guess giving out wine to your wedding guests is the new hip thing. I think it’s a great idea, but then I may be a little biased.
We had a big order come in last week for two hundred bottles of Cabernet Merlot. They had chosen our finest vintage, so we stood to make a fair bit of money. It made me wonder about some of the other choices going into this wedding. I imagined it being a fairly ritzy affair.
Mario and I own a pizza shop. Not to be a braggart or anything, but we do fairly well. In fact, just last week we were named the best pizza joint in town. Customers are always commenting about our crust. We make our dough on the premises three times daily. Every crust is glazed with a special garlic sauce, giving it our signature taste.
When Mario and I got engaged in March, I jokingly said we should use miniature pizza boxes as our wedding favor containers. Somehow the idea stuck. So we found ourselves, the night before our wedding, furiously baking mini pies to go inside each container. I had wanted to do the cooking in the morning, to ensure freshness, but Mario refused. There are some compromises that must be made for taste.
I’ve often said that it takes wine, rose petals, soft music and a
large bed to make a moment special but only one hair in the mouth at
the opportune time to ruin it. Romance is a finicky thing at the best
of times. I worry about our kids future because they seem to be
losing touch with how social situations work. They spend more time on
their cell phones texting than talking while on a date. I have a few
good tips for keeping the romance alive, whether it’s after marriage
or the third date. The biggest thing is poetry; woman love it when men
put the time and effort in to create poems for them. I’ve only ever
made limericks for my girlfriend and I found a scrapbook she’s keeping
with each poem in it. Speaking of scrapbooks, they’re also a great
plan. Nothing makes your wife warm and fuzzy inside than when you can
go back and look at mementos like your wedding invitations, or the
first poem you made for her, or the petals of the rose you gave her on
your one month anniversary.
Sandra viewed the room to be sure everything was perfect. The round tables were set around the room, close enough for conversations, but with room for the servers to move between with out hitting anyone’s chair. There were no stains or rips in the tablecloths that were draped over the tables. The napkins had been folded into various animals and the silverware and glassware were polished and shiny. In the middle of the tables sat the wedding centerpieces, beautiful floral arrangements made by the bride with flowers from her garden. Hidden under every seat was a number that would be chosen to see which lucky guest at each table would take this centerpiece home. All that was left was to light the candles just before the arrival of the guests.
We had planned everything so well! The church was set up for the next day. All of the large floral arrangements were in place and the reception hall was almost complete. The wedding chapel had been decorated with all of the ribbons and flowers. The altar was ready and my great grandmother’s gold filled candelabra was there for the unity candle ceremony. I was proud to be using such a memorable piece because it was a family tradition to be passed down from generation to generation. The morning of my wedding I was given the most devastating news. The church had been robbed the night before and everything was turned upside down. The worst part was the candelabra was stolen among other gold crucifixes which were throughout the chapel. How can people be so evil? We didn’t let it hold us back. Father Dominique gave us an antique set of candle sticks to keep from the church which had been used for many ceremonies. He also said that we were a couple who represented hope and a positive beginning for the upcoming generations. At least we turned something horrible into something beautiful. Isn’t that the way God always works?
