And may your days be good and long upon the earth.

♥ A soul mate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks.
When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are;
we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be.
Each unveils the best part of the other.
No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise.
Our soul mate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction.
When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person.
Our soul mate is the one who makes life “come to life”.
– by Richard Bach ♥ ♥
♥ Love is patient, Love is kind,
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud, it is not rude,
It is not self-seeking,
It is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil,
but rejoices with the truth.
Love always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.
Lover never fails.
– (The Bible 1 Corinthians 13:4-8) ♥ ♥
♥ May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
May God be with you and bless you;
May you see your children’s children.
May you be poor in misfortune,

Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,

May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
– Irish Blessing ♥ ♥

Wording for Wedding Reception Invitations

Wedding reception invitations are made specially to inform your guests about the important details of the reception; venue and time, among other things. The wording for the invitations can be formal or informal, sometimes even humorous or out-of-the-box.If you are hosting both the wedding and the reception at the same venue, then the wording may consist of a line added to the wedding invitation, stating that it will immediately follow the wedding. If however, the venue of the wedding and that of the reception are different, then a separate reception invitation card would need to be made accordingly. The wording should ideally be crisp, clear, and to-the-point, leaving no room open for doubt or befuddlement.

Some guests may have trouble finding the venue – if the place is hard to locate, providing a road map would be quite helpful, not to mention, thoughtful. Instead of getting lost on the way to the reception, guests will be able to easily make it on time, and not reach red-faced and frustrated. The little details count, so work it out accordingly. Also, be sure to get the timings right; you don’t want guests walking in too early, or too late.

It is wise to mention a landmark in the address of the venue. This is helpful for those who may be unfamiliar to the place. Above all, if you have the slightest of doubt about the wording, then do not mind rewriting it all over again.

Wedding Invitation Cards

There are different ways that one can word out wedding invitation cards. You can follow a traditional template or go with something that’s never been used. You can really add your own take to a wedding invitation by including envelopes with intricate work, bejeweled accents, or interesting shapes. Have fun while designing your card and browse through as many samples as you can to get an idea of what the perfect one should be for you.
Weddings are a crazed time of rushed to-do lists and moments that can make you go berserk for mishaps big and small. It’s a time where patience is tested and when fuses grow shorter. The easiest part though is choosing a design and the appropriate wording that will go into a wedding invitation.

It isn’t such a stressful situation to sit down and select a beautiful or even fun wedding invitation card.

How to Select and Word Out a Wedding Invitation

There are two ways to go about selecting a wedding invitation, one is to have someone specially design a card for you, and second is to of course sit down and choose from a folder of sample wedding cards. You could also ask the designer if he / she could use different elements from more than one card to infuse into one, making it stand out and come off as more unique. After you’ve chosen your design, the next part is the wording.
The wording in the invitation card has to mention all the important details that are obvious to include. Be sure to start off with the names of you and your partner in a font that stands out when the reader lets his / her eyes fall on the invitation. You can choose something classy, with an embossed finished. Fun fonts are also available but only if you’re card design is versatile with such a font.
Include the name of your parents, and if they are deceased you can mention this next to their name/s, in enclosed brackets. If you wish to leave out the names of your parents as many people do, you can always start off the main wording immediately after your names.
You can include in the body of the card a prayer, poem, quote, or personal message to the recipient. Keep it short, simple, and heartfelt.
The important part of the wedding invitation is to mention where it will be taking place. Is it going to be the traditional church wedding followed by the reception? Or is it an outdoor wedding followed by the reception in the same / different venue? Mention these two separately, so that people do not confuse the dates / venues of each event. Highlight the important parts like the venue name or event so that it stands out in the invitation, and is hard to miss.
The last part includes the RSVP section, where you need to include details like a home / an email address or phone number/s, that the invitee can get back to for confirmation of whether he /she is attending the wedding. Mention a date to confirm their attendance at least two months before the wedding.

Wedding Invitation Samples

Let’s now look over some creative samples of what a wedding invitation should look like. These layouts will give you an idea of how to design your invitation and word it out in a way that is crisp and clear.
The section that includes the RSVP is important to add at the end of invitation towards the bottom. These samples give you an idea on how to follow a layout and how to place these on a desired design.

Rustic Wedding Decorations

450-31682768-bride-and-groomWedding decorations mark the ceremony of a holy communion of two souls for eternity. Rustic wedding decorations could serve to be witnesses to attest a soulful matrimony. Aah! What a sublime thought! You and your partner have vowed to devote a lifetime to submerge in the true depths of each other. You have made up your mind to wake up every morning just to behold the sight of your beloved. You cannot think of coming back home to anybody else, other than your partner … And you are capable of filing a lawsuit against Almighty, if he thinks of tying you up with anybody else except … you know the answer … your partner. (No brownie points for knowing it though!) On an honest and sincere note, marriage is a communion of two souls, where, one soul holds the reins of a relationship and the other, commands the sanctification of true love. Two souls are intertwined to make one heart.
Rustic Nuptials
Wedding is an occasion where wooing is in the air, where the birds tweet too-wee tao-woo in the most melodious monotone, where the waft of gentle breeze romances your hair and caresses your skin and croons your coy gestures. . . . Aah! A time in one’s life where a subliminal yet magical aura abounds you, and transcends you with utter elation. When feelings et al. are grandiose, why shouldn’t the decorations complement the sentiments . . . with a twist; let’s get better . . . with a rustic twist! If you have been thinking about how to make that D-day, all the more meaningful and magical, then here is some useful resource coming your way! We are here to deliver some rustic wedding ideas that will blow off your guests, (pun not intended) and make them exclaim innumerable ‘wows’!

You may choose to have your wedding in a pergola or a gazebo with wedding bells ringing, surrounded by eloquent relatives and guests. With such pompous declarations of love and togetherness, we often let the ethereal earthiness take a backseat. Yes, I am talking rustic. Rustic weddings can add a flavor of the countryside, where the atmosphere is dewy, the air misty, and the belongings, too hamlet in appearance and demeanor. In a nutshell, it carries a village-y feel that, perhaps, proceedings in a pergola may lack. Here is what you must look into, when you are set and ready to go rustic.
The Theme

The theme is rustic agreed! What about the sub theme then? Hmm … let me explain what I mean by a sub-theme. A sub-theme is the actual concept on which your decorations are to be based. So … do you want a barn-y feel with some stock around; or do you want an antique look to adorn your wedding? Is it the village concept with huts and hay that allures you? The choice is yours, you see!
The Colors

The idea of a rustic wedding is to go with shades that are subtle yet classy; that lend a tint of sophistication. The colors play a sanctimonious role in deciding the theme of the wedding. If you are of the view of highlighting the earthy and misty feel, you must use shades of green, hues of tan brown, and bronze. Make sure not to use brighter shades of these colors – the essence lies in subtlety.
The Dining Arrangements

You may not have chairs that look lush and plush from all angles; however, I also do not mean that you have to put in defective chairs for your guests to endure a nasty fall. (You may blame it on gravity though!) Well, to be serious, you need to arrange for cane chairs, or chairs and tables that look archaic. They could be wood sticks assembled chairs fastened with cane straws. Make sure they are durable, and can hold the heaviest of guests! Don’t trail around with scarves to embellish your chairs. You may like to segregate the family tables and chairs from the rest of the guests’ tables. You may tie tags on the back rest of the chairs, and have placards laid on the tables with hay straws spelling bride and groom’s family!
The Wedding Cake

The wedding cake must look tempting and delicious, yet must carry the earthy feel. You may have the cake brought on a clay tray with little candles lit on it. Dark chocolate pieces sprinkled with little toy animals embellished along the periphery of the cake, would charm the guests. You may also go in for a three-tier wedding cake, but don’t forget the theme! It is rustic and ruffled, and not too polished delivering oodles of penchant!
The Drapes

Again, we have to concentrate on the flowing drapes; they shouldn’t be too loud with their color scheme. They should be lively, not loud; get what I am saying. Take a look around, look at the barn-y feel that you have created with a stack of hay, a few tractors, little hooks for embellishments, and a few horse shoes. A melange of all these colors and hues, would be the perfect factor to decide on the color scheme.
The Ambiance

Well, as mentioned earlier, you can manage to have carts, bundles of hay stacked at various corners, and you may also arrange for some vintage cars. Have your reception at a few meters away from the venue, where you may have a sign board saying Stop for Wedding Toll or Lovers Lane, and the ‘toll’ could be a ride for every guest with their family in the vintage car, from the reception board to the main venue. You may also consider having carts to carry them to the venue. The condition – the guests have to be intimated well before time, about the ‘treatment’ they are to be meted with! They must dress appropriately for the wedding so that they don’t land up in a mess as soon as they arrive!
The Centerpieces

The centerpieces have to deliver charm and simplicity. You can collect jars and archaic vases, or you may use a tree bark as a tray that holds three to four candles in varying length shining bright. You could even have a candle stand with you and your partner’s initials etched on it; looks classy! You could have jars that could be wound up partially, with a thin rope and embellish it with flowers; such as orchids, white tulips, or dahlias, and some filler flowers. Another centerpiece worth a mention is to show how much you care for the depleting environment. You may place a small pot with green grass stuffed within, along with an interesting tag line written on a placard, attached to a stick that juts out – straight or crooked – from the pot. Or go simple by having a table embellished with a tree bark with little hearts made of hay and in it is stuffed dark chocolate enveloped in a wrapper. This could be taken by the guests as a delectable souvenir!

Votive candles enveloped in wire mash fabric would also serve to be the perfect match for a wedding centerpiece. The candles could be positioned on a sliced birch. The circumferential birch may be painted in hues of brown, green, or scarlet red. Pin a picture of yourself with your sweetheart, spending some memorable moments together, on the mash fabric. In this way, you may provide a glimpse of your “couple-hood” to your guests.
The Lighting

The lighting must have a feel of looking worn out. Make the lighting seem dusky and old. Arrange for lanterns, tie colored transparent sheets around them to deliver effects of grace, and beauty. Make the lighting look graveled, a bit used and, if possible, even earthy. Place candles at the aisle in small bottles and jars. Nothing needs to be synchronized in terms of lighting; you may go as wild as possible with your ideas.
The Serving Utensils

Have them do the trick for you, yet again! Play with clay molds. Offer soups or delicacies in clay bowls and plates. Offer them wooden spoons to sip their soup. Embossing dinner plates with initials of the bride and groom adds to the titian dimension of the wedding. You may also have utensils made of bronze or clay-like material that strike a rustic note with the theme. Along with utensils fabricated with clay, you may allot hand towels or napkins in bisque shades. You may choose to roll the napkin and secure it with a napkin band or a little piece of rope to keep the rustic spirit alive.
