Homer & Marge Simpson weds!

In Blog, Celebrity Wedding, News by wedding_blogLeave a Comment

Aside from the subject and the accompanying image for this entry, I must admit that nothing else in this post is wedding-related. This is actually just a random thought about The Simpsons Movie as one of us is a BIG fan of the show. Though there was a part in the movie when Homer was watching their wedding video, this is not the point of this post.The film is entertaining not in the big Hollywood blockbuster kinda way, but the creators clearly had fun making the movie with the intention to sometimes mess up with the audience. Don’t expect much, it’s the TV show on the big screen. If this weekend you’re already in Megamall visiting the Wedding Congress, why not hit the cinemas afterward to watch. It’s fun! More of my random thoughts about the movie here.

The Sand Ceremony

In Trends, Wedding Hacks by wedding_blogLeave a Comment

For soon-to-weds planning a beach wedding, you may want to consider the Sand Ceremony. This is one novel alternative to the unity candle ceremony incorporated into many western weddings.The essence of this ritual is to symbolize the union of two into one. The ceremony is not only meaningful and interesting but also more appropriate for an outdoor setting.     Christian weddings also incorporate the Sand Ceremony in other venues other than the beach. If you’re tying the knot in a Catholic church, you may want to ask your officiating priest if he would allow it. There is wide assortment of colored sands available in craft stores. You may also find colored “sands” (actually fine salt with coloring) in Divisoria at P50-P60/kilo. The only downside to this alternative is when the moisture gets into the vase especially when you intend to make the symbolic sand mixture as a keepsake after the wedding. If you’re interested in doing this for your wedding, learn how to go about it.
