Weddings - The Special Day of Life's Calendar

Jul 21, 2008
There are several special events in one's life - birthdays, graduation and more, but none can come close to that extra special, occasion, a wedding. This is an occasion when two hearts, minds and souls unite in an eternal commitment of love, a feeling so excruciatingly pleasurable which makes weddings the once in a lifetime, occasion, they are. From the traditional, to the bizarre, weddings have seen it all over the centuries. It wasn't too long ago when weddings were confined to customary traditions, rituals and accepted formulas that varied in nature from culture to culture, ethnic group to ethnic group, and country to country. Today however, there are numerous couples who are clamouring for change in the style and nature of their weddings, setting aside tradition, in the hope that their big day will be different and therefore a memorable one.

Following the desire to have a totally different concept for tying the knot, many couples have exchanged vows by doing such bizarre things as getting married underwater in a swimming pool, in a hot air balloon or even while sky diving. It is acts such as these which give the couple and their guests something extraordinary to remember. With millions of people tying the knot each year, a wedding is not just an institution, but has become a lucrative industry today. This is due to the fact that there are a limitless number of wedding concepts, themes, gifts, accessories, venues and more to suit just about any wedding budget or style that one can imagine.

Exotic places around the world are today, not just honeymoon destinations, but venues for the wedding itself. In addition to this, beach weddings are becoming extremely popular among numerous couples owing to the romantic and scenic atmosphere that such a location presents. As a matter of choice, weddings can be quiet, solemn and intimate affairs, or as ostentatiously lavish as couples could afford. In their drive to be different, many couples are increasingly opting for theme-orientated, weddings, for example, Las Vegas theme, winter theme, beach theme, garden or spring theme, poker theme, destination theme and many, many more. What makes such theme weddings possible are the availability of several professional and experienced wedding planners as well as décor, gifts, accessories, props and material of every size, colour, form and texture. However, as exciting as weddings may be, it takes some serious planning, time and money to make them the occasions they are meant to be, i.e., memorable ones. Moreover, putting together all aspects of a wedding can also be difficult should a couple decide to plan and execute things on their own.

Fortunately, today most couples have the luxury of professional help that their grandparents did not. Such help has taken the stress associated with planning weddings and put all the excitement, joy and fun back into them. If you are planning to say "I do" shortly, remember, there are many wedding professionals out there who are saying "I can do anything for you", too. So, go ahead, tie that know without hesitation.
