How to choose your wedding shoes

Women bridal shoes are just as important as the wedding dress. As a result, you should also spend your time to choose your wedding shoes. You will just ruin all your effort on searching for your wedding dress if you do not get a good pair of bridal shoes.The right choice will give you a perfect moments every women should dream about; perfect wedding.

Comfort is the most important thing for a bride to consider when choosing bridal shoes for her wedding day. Remember you will be on your feet for a lot of the day, so if you don’t feel comfortable in sky-high stilettos choose a style with a lower heel. Think about whether you’ll be standing in grass, on sand or walking long distances. If you’re having a wedding by the beach, a gorgeous pair of flat wedding shoes or sandals may be more appropriate than towering wedding heels.
It’s also a good idea to wear in your bridal shoes before the big day. 20 minutes a day for two or three days before the wedding will help soften up the leather and make you aware of any spots that may require blister covers.

Black, White, and Gold Wedding Color Ideas

Table Setting

You don’t have to be a card shark to appreciate the 007 charm of this letterpress design, which sports a black diamond. It sits in a name card holder that was silver -- that is, until we went all King Midas on it with the same gold-leaf kit mentioned earlier. To prevent a game of musical chairs, glue calligraphed name tags to lengths of ribbon and wrap one around each napkin.

Glam It Up

Pair your gown with graphic accessories and hit the aisle red carpet-style.

Go for Bold

Get your hands on a big black-and-white bouquet tied with two dramatic ribbons. This clutch of creamy orchids, ranunculus, and Queen Anne’s lace, peppered with black calla lilies and chocolate cosmos, is eccentric and stunning. A gold-trim collar and striped bow add volume to the posy.

Losing Weight for Your Wedding

Many brides decide to lose weight before their big day, but it's important to ensure your weight loss is safe and healthy.

How early should you start losing weight?
As early as possible. You don't want to be rushing these types of programs at an unhealthy rate when you get closer to the big day. Slow and steady is the best way to go. You will have a lot on your plate organising your big day so you don't want to add any undue stress with your new exercise and eating regime than need be. There are so many different ways out there to get yourself fit and healthy these days.

What programs do you recommend for brides?
Aim for something you will enjoy and won't bore you. This will be the big key for helping you to be able to stick with it and get the results you are after.Personally, I am always a big advocate of a resistance training program for women, whether with a trainer, in a group of through a gym. Don't worry you won't be walking down the aisle looking like 'Arnie'! Resistance training is one of the best ways for women in particular to be able to drop their excess body fat stores and give their metabolism a bit of a kick in the pants to get moving.

Why is exercise an important role in weight loss?
As we said earlier it all comes down to energy in versus energy out. Tweak both variables and you will get to your goal sooner. After just weight loss there are so many other benefits that will come from exercise. So many of them people can’t see, like your improved fitness and strength, but your change in the shape will be clear for everyone to see.
