1- Never forget romance
Don’t underestimate the power of a sweet word or a warm caress, a candlelight dinner accompanied with music, it can work wonders. So despite of your hectic schedules find the time to express your love and never take your partner for granted.
2- Don’t lose the sense of humor
Trying to lighten up a gloomy situation, looking at the bright side of the things would certainly be the positive and right way to deal with the difficult times.
3- Keep the respect for each other
If you don't have admiration for each other, things will not work. An indication of lack of compassion, good manners and mutual respect especially during heated discussions or difficult situations will be the poison that kills your love and marriage gradually. Don't let anything get in the way of respecting each other.
4- Dont handcuffs your partner
Marriage is not a prison sentence; it's a lifetime commitment of love, companionship and
understanding. You both need breathing space; that way love will flourish and grow.
5- Don’t struggle over authority and power
Marriage is certainly not a battle field. You are not opponents, you are companions. In a marriage you must learn to compromise and to let go every once in a while, if you find your partner is getting ready for a big fight, surprise him/her by giving in, then you can find the right time for a comprehensive discussion if necessarily.
6- Be honest
Face your problems, admit that they exist and work on solving them. Hiding behind a screen will not make them disappear, and ignoring them will only build them up into a dormant volcano ready to erupt at any time, pouring out lava of pain, anger and disappointment.
7- Keep the balance between giving and taking
Love is all about giving, but mind you, this does not mean that one party should take advantage of the other; it can't mean endless giving from one partner and endless taking from the other. There is a thin line between the two partners of giving and taking each in his way.
8- It is just the two of you
Keep your marriage details and problems for yourselves and dont let people influence your marriage. Always remember that anyone beside you and your partner is a third party even your mother, sister, and best friend.
9- Keep marriage sexually satisfying
Don’t be embarrassed to talk about your sexual needs or fears with your partner, if you are not satisfied in bed or if you feel that your partner has a sexual problem, choose the right moment and discuss it with him.
10- Its takes time
Both of you are used to different things, different habits; how you eat, when you sleep and even when and what to watch in TV, so you have to understand that it is take time and effort from both of you to get used to living together.

Gentlemen nowadays are very innovative when comes to proposing to their girlfriends. Some are grandiose, some chose to have it over a simple dinner. My husband proposed to me inside the church where we first met and the same church where we said our I do's.
Guys here are some tips that you might want to apply when proposing marriage to your girl.
- Make sure you find the right person before you propose marriage.
How to Know if You Are Marrying the Right Person
- Fall in love.
- Although it is a bit dated tradition, know enough about your future in-laws to know if they would like it if you ask permission from them before you propose marriage.
- Know enough about your future spouse so you can create a meaningful and delightful experience.
Questions to Discuss BEFORE You Get Married
- Decide if you are going to purchase the engagement ring before or after you propose marriage.
- When purchasing an engagement ring, make sure you stay within your budget or financial capability.
- Pay attention to timing. Don't plan on proposing marriage when your future spouse is stressed or overwhelmed.
- Pick a memorable place, song, or occasion such as where you first met, or first kissed, etc.
- Set a romantic tone for your marriage proposal.
- Although we don't recommend that you do something silly like tying the engagement ring to a kite string or fishing line, we do think you should try to keep your marriage proposal fun.
- Keep your marriage proposal simple. The more complicated the marriage proposal is, the more things that could go wrong with your proposal plans!
- Make sure you don't lose the engagement ring if you've purchased one and hid it. Some folks hide an engagement ring so well that even they can't find it.
- Keep your marriage proposal private. Proposing in front of your future spouse's family or at a sports stadium may be exciting in the movies, but in real life, it is best to keep your marriage proposal just between the two of you.
- Again ... if you are thinking of tying the ring to the end of a kite string or fishing line, be certain that your intended has a great sense of humor and that you know how to tie a good knot!
- Share Your Marriage Proposal Stories!
- Be prepared to have your best-laid marriage proposal plans fall apart.
- Focus more on the moment than on the engagement ring and other externals surrounding your marriage proposal.
- Try not to give your plans away by showing how nervous you are.
What You Need:
- A plan
- A location
- An engagement ring
- Lots of love

The day before my wedding day, my cousins treat me to a relaxing spa. According to them, this will bring out my skin's natural glow. We had a 4 hours pampering and I really love it!
Here's some tips I got for you all bride-to-be
Every bride wants her wedding to be picture perfect - from the dress to the flowers to the food at the reception. And of course, brides want to be beautiful, both for the ceremony and for the wedding pictures. Beauty starts with good skin, so start planning ahead to ensure flawless skin on the big day.
There's no makeup that can compete with the glow of healthy skin, so now is the time to get serious about skin care. To help diminish facial wrinkles, you'll want a product that contains peptides, amino acids which stimulate the skin to synthesize its own collage, the substance that keeps your skin firm and elastic. It's proven that peptides twice a day for 30 days will have a substantial impact on your skin.
ChellÃ¡, a professional skin care line previously available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills, has patented an ingredient called the Chell-X Complex, which contains peptides combined with other key ingredients to stimulate your skin's natural collagen production. Studies show that the collagen peptides in ChellÃ¡'s products increased the synthesis of collagen by 350 percent.
What that means to you is that your skin will look and feel years younger. The products are easy to use and designed for any skin type, and the complete product line is now available online.
Here are some additional tips to get your skin - and the rest of you -- looking gorgeous for your wedding day:

Decide on a Honeymoon Budget:You may have already decided this when planning your wedding budget. If not, sit down and do this before you decide anything else. Figure out if you have any frequent flier miles or hotel miles that can be used towards your trip. Consider putting all of the wedding expenses on a credit card that earns frequent flier miles for your honeymoon. (Be sure to pay it off every month – you don’t want to start a new marriage with a ton of new debt.)
Decide When to Go and For How Long:First, figure out how many vacation days you have accrued, and how many of them you’ll need before the wedding for last minute planning. (It’s not uncommon for brides to take a week off, and grooms to take a couple of days.) Do you want to leave the morning after your wedding? Or, do you want to have some time after the wedding to unwind and pack when you’ll be more focused on it, and take your honeymoon a few days or even a few weeks later? Another option, for those who don’t have a lot of vacation days, is to take a weekend “mini-moon” after the wedding, and then take a long second honeymoon on your first anniversary.
Decide Where to Go on Your Honeymoon: Each of you should take a few minutes to separately write down what you envision doing on your honeymoon. Do you want somewhere warm or cold? Do you want to go someplace far away and new, or someplace close to home? Do you want a resort where there will be other honeymooners to socialize with, or someplace secluded where it will just be the two of you? Do you want to be in a city with museums, restaurants and nightlife or, do you want there to be lots of athletic activities available? Perhaps you’ll just want to spend a lot of time in the room! Once each of you has your list, compare. Where there are differences, see if there’s one place that might have the best of both worlds.
Consider Visiting a Travel Agent:While most people are booking travel online these days, a travel agent can be extremely helpful when planning a honeymoon. Not only will he or she have ideas about places you might not have thought of, but they’ll be familiar with those details like “do you need a visa?” and when the rainy season is. They might also have special packages or deals to pass on to you.
Learn More about Where You’re Going:It’s never too early to get excited. As soon as you’ve picked a spot, buy a travel book, so you can read about all there is to do and see.
Arrange for Passports and Visas, if Necessary. Make Sure Your Driver’s License is Up to Date.These pesky little details can take time and therefore are one of the first things you should do, once you know where you are going. I’ll never forget the trip where I got to the counter of the rental car agency only to be told that my driver’s license had expired only days before. Luckily the person I was with could rent the car, but I would have been better off with a little forethought.

Looking into the home and decor section, I found some interesting things to buy that I think would surely put some colors in our home. The beds and mattresses they feature look very soft and comfortable plus the lamps that makes the room look more cozy.
Another thing my husband and I are considering is how to maintain the cleanliness of the house, so we checked further into their home maintenance products that indeed will make our life easier. We planned on buying a vacuum cleaner as this would be a big help to us when cleaning the house. One special request I got from my husband is that I should consider buying new garden hose for him. He wanted to do some landscaping in our garden and he needs a hose to water all the plants. Who would have thought that all of these basic home needs are made available online. So if you're have problems with your home care needs, check out this amazing site and enjoy shopping with just a click of your fingers.

FACES OF LOVE
Milton Berle once quipped that "all the world loves a lover --
except people who are waiting to use the phone."
Love has many faces. The faces we see so often are ones of
infatuation and romance. We speak of "falling in love" and feel,
too, as if we are in free fall. But the face of love I appreciate
the most is not romance, as much as I am drawn to it, but one I
can always count on to be there. It is the face of devotion.
I see that face in the couple who were engaging in a dinner time
disagreement. To the children's amazement, their father jumped up
from the table, grabbed two sheets of paper, and said to his
wife, "Let's make a list of everything we don't like
about each other." (I don't recommend the technique as an example
of healthy conflict management. But please finish the story....)
She agreed and proceeded to write. He, meanwhile, sat and
glowered. She looked up and he began to write. When she continued
listing complaints, he stared across the table at her. Again,
when she looked up he put pen to paper and continued writing. He
stopped to watch her, and every time she caught his eye, he wrote
They finally finished. "Let's exchange complaints," he said. They
gave each other their lists.
She glanced at his sheet and pleaded, "Give mine back!" All down
his sheet he had written: "I love you, I love you, I love you."
Their children have always remembered that moment with humor and
As much as I enjoy romance, it's an unwavering devotion that I
need the most. I need to know that love which says, "I will be
with you through it all." It is a face which can often be seen on
parents and grandparents, on spouses, and even on very good
friends. And it is a face which, when I gaze closely enough, I
can see in it something of the face of God.
If you haven't noticed that face lately, look closely. You might
be surprised where you find it!

Happy Hearts Day to all my blogger friends!

If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me ye women you can
I prize thy love more than whole mines og Gold.
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee, give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay,
The heavens reward thee manifold repay,
Then while we live, in love let's so persevere
That when we live no more, we may live ever.
Hope you'll like it too.
When God Made You - Newsong
How two hearts can come together
And love can last forever
But now that I have found you, I believe
That a miracle has come
When God sends the perfect one
Now gone are all my questions about why
And I've never been so sure of anything in my life
I wonder what God was thinking
When He created you
I wonder if He knew everything I would need
Because He made all my dreams come true
When God made you
He must have been thinking about me
I promise that wherever you may go
Wherever life may lead you
With all my heart I'll be there too
From this moment on I want you to know
I'll let nothing come between us
I'll love what ever you love
He made the sun He made the moon
to harmonise in perfect tune
One can't move without the other
They just have to be together
And that is why I know it's true
You're for me and I'm for you
Cause my world just can't be right
Without you in my life
I wonder what God was thinking
When He created you
I wonder if He knew everything I would need
Because He made all my dreams come true
He must have heard every prayer I've been praying
Yes, He knew everything I would need
When God made you
When dreams come true
When God made you
He must have been thinking about me
1. Flowers - tulips, roses
2. Chocolate - ferero rocher, kisses, cadbury
3. Dinner Date - cozy restaurant, bb-q by the beach, fast food chains
4. Movie Date
5. Out of Town trip
6. Beach Escapades

I go for gowns that are simple, not so ballooned, and with embroideries
I also like the idea of having a laced sleeves
I was also considering a laced bolero to make me look a little thinner
I love the idea of having a ribbon or silk lace for a belt (color depends on the wedding theme and color motiff)
1- Of course, the most obvious one is : I will be committed to one person- unless a different commitment is made by both partners due to unforeseen and unavoidable conditions.
2- I will deeply respect my lover. The latest research in psychology has found that disdain is THE relationship killer! (No surprise there...)
3- I will help my partner grow into his/her most happy, fulfilled self!
4- Each time I criticize my partner, I will have the courage to look into myself, honestly searching
for the same trait that irritates me about him/her. This usually occurs in a different arena of life. This introspection will often lead you (surprisingly) to recognize that you do indeed possess the same trait. Therefore, you cannot throw a stone. You will reach a state of compassion: "Like me, my partner does the best he/she can with the conditioning he/she has incurred in life."
5- I will do whatever it takes to keep and develop the trust of my partner. Trust is the foundation of a relationship. One must do anything it takes to maintain that trust.
6- I will be willing to grow and change when conflicts and challenges arise. Difficulty always rears its head at some point. The couples who are able to grow... through some inner work... (together, not just one of them) will enjoy longevity of togetherness.
7- I take full responsibility for my own happiness. I will do what I need to do to find inner peace and joy; I will not require my partner to do that for me.
8- I will let him/her be free to find his/her happiness also, as long as his/her activities are respectful of me as the other committed partner.
9- I will accept my partner fully, including every "flaw", and stop wishing for him/her to change. When any shortcoming of your partner triggers irritation for you, there two choices: either do your inner work and come to fully accept him/her, or respectfully leave the relationship. People are miserable when they absolutely try to make things work by hoping that their partner will change. They are in total misalignment as they entertain this notion.
10- I will continue growing and learning so that I evolve into an ever-interesting and multi-faceted individual who has an abundance to offer and share. You will prevent boredom by reinventing your life periodically and preserving the interest and sizzle that began the relationship initially.
If you observe closely, all of these commitments are in fact based on self-love and on unconditional love. When you learn to love in both these ways, you will automatically support your partner in their own growth and never hinder him/her. In such a supportive environment, there is then no reason for leaving your partner... ever. You become a team, helping each other realize goals (both common and individual) to the fullest.!
I'm still compiling pictures of bridal gowns. Will posting them soon! Keep posted!

1. For Catholic Weddings, decide on the priest who will solemnize your marriage. For n0n-Catholics, decide on the pastor, judge or mayor who will do it.
2. Principal Sponsors. Decide on how many sponsors or ninongs and ninangs you will get. As much as possible, choose those who are most likely to attend the celebration. It is not nice to see that one of the sponsors is walking down the aisle alone.
3. Secondary Sponsors. Some couples preferred their married friends to be one of the sponsors but it is not necessary though.
4. Maid of Honor. She is usually the bride's single sister or bestfriend
Matron of Honor. She is usually the bride's married sister or bestfriend or anybody closest to her.
5. Best Man. Usually a brother or the bestfriend of the groom. Some preferred a bachelor friend.
6. Bridesmaids. Most of the time, they are from the bride's relative and friends but if the groom has a sister who is not married, she can also be one of the bridesmaid.
7. Groomsmen. They are the bridesmaids' partner. Maybe a relative or friend of the groom and also the bride.
8. Flower Girls and Bearers. They can be taken from both sides. Be sure that they are old enough to walk down the aisle alone and can f0llow instructions.

When planning the wedding by yourselves, one can cut on the expenses for the expertise of the coordinator plus you can look for direct suppliers of wedding items which i believe is a lot cheaper. In addition, you can decide on the go-about of your big day with some personal touch on it. On the other hand, planning your wedding can also be very stressful and might even cause commotion between the two of you along the planning and preparation process.
So those who are planning to get married, decide on what best suits you and your partner and from that point, work on it! Good Luck!
