I have always loved attending weddings. There is so much excitement and happiness and love in the air. Whenever I hear of friends getting engaged and getting married, I always volunteer to help in organizing the reception and giving out suggestions to the bride to be. Even if it is not my wedding, I am always feel enthusiastic about how the wedding will turn out to be.

I admit I am not an expert in organizing weddings but I think I know the basics. Apart from the paperwork, which I think is the most important, there are just a number of things that are just as important such as the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception. A wedding will not be complete without the bride and groom, of course and both should look dashing and perfect. More often, the grooms wear a coat and tie or bow ties, or in traditional formal wear such as the Barong Tagalog in the Philippines. The brides on the other hand usually wear a long white gown and a veil, designed specially for the bride. The entourage is usually garbed with the wedding colors, with the bride's maids wearing formal or semi-formal long dresses and the groom's men in coat and tie or barongs. A wedding will not be complete without the flowers and photography. This event comes only once in a lifetime, for the case of those who don't believe in divorce, so that these precious moments should be immortalized on photo paper. One must not forget the wedding rings for they symbolize the promise and the bond that the married couple have made.

Ah, weddings... If you are the bride and want to really take care of every detail, it could be quite stressful. But with the help of family and friends, and a little inspiration, all shall be well and everything will just fall into place. One must also bear in mind that it does not end at the wedding ceremony. Married life has just begun the moment you say "I do."
