Wedding Bells are ringing!

The month of June is one of the most popular months for getting married! As many of you know, I work as a professional makeup artist and I get quite a few inquiries this time of year from brides seeking makeup services. When I consult with a bride, I can't help but reflect back on my wedding day...

All of the planning, fussing over details, the excitement and anticipation for the future! I recall all the details building up to the ceremony, my actual wedding, my honeymoon and then on to building a life as husband & wife.
Then my mind drifts to present day. Over a decade and 3 kids later, I think about all the advice I received as a new bride. The one piece of advice that stands out is one I received over & over again. Mostly from older couples and it stood out because it struck me as simple at the time in comparison to all the notes left for me. It wasn't profound, it wasn't long and simply was "always kiss before bed".

Now that I have put in some work, I understand how profound and deep that advice really is. Its the one piece I pass on to new brides I work with. It can apply to every couple and will help you come together every night despite whats going on in life. A simple kiss goodnight, can bring a moment of calm in any storm, reaffirm your connection and is simple reminder of the tenderness that should always exist between you and your spouse.

What wedding advice have you received? Did you use any of it? What advice would you pass on to other couples or brides?

This is a great post! I would have to say the best advice I received was to not take anyones advice and keep everyone else out of your marriage!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

@Anonymous 1, I know where you are coming from with your comment. I think most advice, when sincere, is good. Even if it doesn't apply at the time, you may find if useful later. You and your partner have to make your union strong. No one, nor unsolicited advice will break that bond.

@Anonymous 2, there are some great comments on the Face Book Page! Thanks for stopping by both the FB page and the blog! We appreciate that!

Here is some advice I received from a relative: "Know that marriage will have many ups & downs. May most of those take place in the bedroom!"

OK! I couldn't resist, LOL.
