Floating beautyOne way to reduce costs for a wedding is to create the centerpieces yourself. The following suggestions for do-it-yourself centerpieces are easy to make and range from fun to elegant.

Floating beauty

For a night wedding, consider filling low glass bowls with water. Place several floating candles in each bowl, interspersed with gardenia blossoms for a fragrant and beautiful centerpiece. First, select attractive bowls for the centerpieces. Pyrex or other heat-resistant types of glass are the best choices since even the small amount of heat from the candle flames could cause fragile glass or crystal to break; there is no way to keep the candles from lingering near the sides of the bowls. Purchase white floating candles; while all wax candles can float, those specially intended for floating are balanced to stay upright as they move around in the water. Unscented candles are preferable since the gardenias already have a lovely aroma. However, if you select scented candles, ensure the fragrance is mild and will not compete with that from the flowers or irritate guests. Trim the leaves and stems from gardenia blossoms and place them gently on the surface of the water so they will float. Want to add a little color to the arrangement? Add a few drops of food coloring to the water in each bowl and stir before you add the candles and flowers.

Sacrifice and marriageGiving up something for a higher purpose is a concept that Indians find easy to accept because of the nature of our upbringing. Whether we have grown up with the ideal character of Rama or stories about the Prophet or Jesus, Indians tend to interpret sacrifice as an essential ingredient in becoming better human beings, or even, in carrying out our everyday tasks.

It is such a perception of giving up one’s personal pleasure for the good of the family or community that has made the Indian family stand solid for so long. While things may tumble and crumble for families in more developed countries, families in India have been more close-knit even in the face of consumerism and traditional values being challenged by globalization.

But will we remain close-knit and loyal, ready to sacrifice something for those we love? Only time will tell. Meanwhile, many couples have to struggle with their newly-wed relationship because one or both have many family pressures operating on them.

Dream partnerFinding the right one when it comes to partners isn’t easy, but what usually complicates the situation is that you aren’t really sure what the ‘right one’ is like. If you don’t have a focused idea of the kind of partner you’re looking for, you aren’t likely to recognize them even if you fell over their feet in the coffee shop.

Defining your dream partner isn’t about setting an ingredients list in stone, but rather thinking about the sort of person your ideal partner would be, creating a mental check-list so that you don’t spend a lot of time dating people who fall a long way from that list. Take a look at the following steps and see how easy it is to define your dream partner.

Step 1: What’s the most important attribute that your dream partner must have. Unlike the other attributes you will put on your list, this is the one unshakable thing that your partner has to have. The idea here is that this is going to be something important to you and it will help you to immediately narrow your search down to only the potential partners who have this personality trait or physical characteristic. Remember, this is something that is un-negotiable - something such as a ‘non-smoker’ or even someone who does smoke, or someone who doesn’t have a prison record, or isn’t allergic to cats, or think even deeper than this, the person you are looking for must like and want children (or not!).

LiesThe Telegraph reported the case of a couple where the wife, a twenty seven year old lady and the husband, a young man aged thirty two were chatting with each other under pseudo names. The couple poured their hearts out to each other about how each one of them was stuck in an unhappy marriage.

Then came a time when they came so close to one another that they decided to meet and take things forward. But, when they did meet hell broke loose as each of them accused the other lying and cheating the other.

This example might be a little extreme albeit it is true and in the cyber age it is probably not uncommon. However, what is striking is the fact that couples who are looking for comfort outside their respective marital relationships are not lying about their problems but they are lying about their reactions to the situation.
