Important Conversations To Have Before Marriage

21 May 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

Important-Conversations-to-Have-Before-Marriage.jpg

You probably feel like you know your future spouse pretty well. You’ve probably had long talks about how you envision your future, but you may not have talked very much about how you’d get to that future. There are several things that might be difficult to discuss, and you may not even realize you need to discuss these issues.  Here are a few subjects to discuss before marriage, which will give you both a better picture of your expectations from one another after you’ve walked down the aisle.

1. Children

If you two haven’t discussed the subject of kids, it’s much better to have that conversation before marriage to save yourself a lot of potential unhappiness.  Discussing whether or not you want to have children (as well as when, and how many) is a good place to start, but you should also discuss how you envision raising your children and where you stand on major issues of child rearing, including discipline.

You don’t have to agree on every issue, but if there are major disagreements, work them out before you walk down the aisle. Don’t depend on swaying your partner to your point of view; this is a good way to create resentment and hostility between you. Work it out before you say your vows.

2. Long-Term Financial and Career Goals

Conversations about how to manage your money and how to pay bills should be well under way before marriage, and should continue after you’re married.  Decide whether you’ll share an account and pay all of the bills out of “our money,” or if you’ll have separate accounts with each of you responsible for paying a percentage of the household bills. If you have a joint savings or checking account, who will be responsible for taking care of balancing it? As you evolve in your marriage and your circumstances change, make sure to revisit your financial decisions and adjust them as needed. Don’t forget to discuss saving for your later years, as well.

You don’t have to make any set-in-stone decisions and you don’t have to completely agree about how best to handle financial and career matters; but again, large disagreements should be addressed before marriage.

3. Morality and Faith

Explore how each of you feels about religion and faith, and talk about your views on morality. Problems can arise when one partner does not realize how devout their partner really is; especially once children enter the picture. It may not seem like an important issue now, but discuss your views on religion, faith, morality and family.

You may disagree on some things like how to handle family conflicts, but larger disagreements over faith, religion and moral values can lead to very large problems in the marriage. Discuss these things and make sure you know where your partner stands on these very important issues.

A guide to dress - silhouettes

Necklines

An important detail to consider on your dress is the neckline. This will help you decide what accessories you will be wearing – some necklines scream for a statement necklace, others call for a demure set of pearls. And, in some cases, you will feel that the dress alone is enough! Especially if your choice has an embellished or lace bodice and/or sleeves.

Note that the neckline of your gown has a huge impact on what bra you need to wear. So once you’ve made a final decision on your dress, underwear should be next on your list.

Nothing makes a Bridal statement quite like a sweeping train. We’ve listed the different lengths you’ll find on our handy pin below so you can be sure to ask for the right type if you’re desperate for that wow factor. And remember to ask your seamstress to add a wrist loop, or a bustle if you prefer, so that you can dance in your gown later on. Or you could always get a second, shorter dress for the evening 😉

North Carolina Wedding Ideas and Inspiration

24 Apr 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

This sweet styled shoot is bursting with North Carolina wedding ideas and inspiration that blends the vibes of the 1920s with the 1960s, while even giving a nod to chic bohemian styling through its romantic details. When Rachel Red Photography delivered her first submission to us, we couldn’t have been more delighted with its ethereal feel, and the use of one of our favorite Hayley Paige gowns and Jenny Yoo Bridesmaids dresses. Set at the beautiful High Grove Estate, recently refurbished, this team of vendors were inspired by the venue’s new neutral and picturesque ambiance. And for us, we are firm believers that when it comes to choosing your wedding venue, it should be inspired by a couple’s journey. Perfect for the inspiration behind this styled shoot. The peaceful setting beautiful hosts the moody color palette of dusty blues, soft grays and an abundance of greens.

North Carolina’s High Grove Estate

The recent renovation of the High Grove Estate, went from a dated dark character to an inviting atmosphere using light, airy and neutral tones. Stationary from Wedding Paper Divas was used as the “jumping off” point for colors and design. The color palette perfectly complimented the new décor and added an eclectic twist to the design, making image after image more personal and interesting, thanks Rachel Red Photography. The “bride” of the day was also the designer and eloquently showcased how a traditional venue can overcome the sense of being too aristocratic to one that is inviting and warm.

Moody Tones of a Color Palette

A Hayley Paige gown that oozes femininity with the designer’s renowned talent for embroidery over illusion was certainly a show-stopper. Surrounded by the soft and moodiness of Jenny Yoo’s gray-blue tulle Bridesmaids dresses. Bouquets by Flowers on Broad Street were bursting with eucalyptus and greenery with neutral tone floral peeking through. The same blooms easily translated to arrangements for the tablescape to highlight the gray linens, china, and added character of the gold flatware.

Wedding Photography – 2011 Favorite Bridal Photography

 Memorable shots of the bride can run from the more traditional photo of the bride looking directly into the camera, to one of her looking off in contemplation, to those expressing the emotions of joy, laughter, love. How the photographer creates that moment depends as much on the photographer’s style as that of their subject – the bride. Here are just a few of our fav strictlyweddings.com “just the bride” photos.
