Weight Loss For Weddings

Weight loss for weddings does not begin on your wedding day. Successful weight loss for weddings in anticipation of your wedding day or any other day, begins not with a diet, but with your mind. Once you learn the four essentials to safe weight loss for weddings and apply them, you will realize the weight that you want for your wedding day.

What are the four basics to the weight loss for weddings plan and how can you benefit from them? In short they are 1) the right food, 2) the right time, 3) the right amount, and 4), the right exercise.

The Right Food: Understanding the mechanics of fat cells will guide you to the right foods for weight loss. Fat cells are programmed to store energy in the form of fat. Crash diets can be misinterpreted by your fat cells as a crisis situation and instead of breaking down and releasing their energy, your fat cells will conserve themselves by reducing the release of their energy, their fat, to a slim trickle. Your body will retain its fat for as long as it can with very little, if any, weight loss.

Eating foods that are natural, non processed, whole, and nutritious tells your fat cells that all is well and there is no need to hoard or increase the amount of fat in your body.

Your body needs protein, fats (like the fat stored in your body), minerals and vitamins to renew itself and carry out its life sustaining functions and processes. The best sources of these nutrients are unprocessed, complex carbohydrates, fruits, and vegetables. The preferred meats for weight loss are fish, and fowl.

The Right Time: Nutritionists are now convinced that eating small frequent meals throughout the day, while not reducing the total daily intake, dramatically reduces the tension of the body to store fat. (The body and fat cells sense that there is no shortage of food.) The most important meal lasts to be a nutritious and satisfying breakfast. Do not skip it if you want the weight loss for weddings plan to work for you!

The Right Amount: Eat a wide variety of nutritious foods and eat enough. Do not make your fat cells hoard their energy because they do not sense enough food in your body. Do not get greedy, though. Allow your body to get used to smaller and more frequent meals and you will lose weight. Your body will gladly adapt to smaller more frequent meals over time.

The Right Exercise: Scientific study has proven beyond all doubt that people who regularly perform aerobic exercises realize significant weight loss and do not get fat. Any exercise sustained for a continuous 20 minute period on a daily basis that increases your heart rate, raises your metabolism, and injects copious amounts of fat burning oxygen throughout your body and will result in weight loss. Typical exercises in this category are jogging, cycling, brisk walking, and rope skipping. Remember, people who regularly engage in …

Exquisite Wedding Bands Made of 22 Carat Gold

Pure 24 carat gold is soft and can be easily bent. It is generally mixed with some other metal to give it strength and durability. For beautiful pieces of gold jewelry, 22 carat is best though 18 carat also looks good. In fact diamonds show its best color in 18 carat gold jewelry. A wedding ring or wedding band is a ring that indicates the marriage of the person wearing it. It is usually worn on the base of third finger of the left hand, also called the ring finger. This custom of wearing a wedding band began in Europe and was originally worn only by women. However, in early 20th century, husbands too began to wear the wedding ring.

According to custom, the wedding ring or band is the last of a series of gifts that are given by the groom to the bride. Nowadays, the double ring marriage ceremony when both the bride and groom exchange the wedding band is quite common and once the ring is placed on the finger it is not removed, unless the marriage is dissected or one of the couple dies. It symbolically declares eternal love one may have for the other. This ceremony is a modern innovation and the designs of both rings are almost similar, with the groom wearing a heavier and thicker wedding band than the bride. Normally, these wedding bands are made of 22 carat gold and are smooth.

Matching wedding rings in white gold, embossed wedding rings, and designer etchings on the wedding band, unique and fancy wedding bands, and even braided wedding rings are available.

Fall Weddings

The days are shorter, the air is crisper and leaves full of vibrant gold, red and orange and falling to the ground. While summer is turning swiftly into fall, that doesn’t mean wedding season is over for the year. It’s possible to have a beautiful wedding during the fall. The key? Using the beauty of fall to your advantage. After all, it’s all about using your five senses to create your dream wedding!!

Sight: Do you want to have an outdoor wedding on a sunny day? It’s all about what you think will be visually pleasing. Why not capture your wedding on film with a photo shoot among the colorful leaves in a forest? Also, be sure to place a disposable camera on each table, so your guests can capture beautiful moments for you, especially if you do choose to have an airy, outdoor wedding. And for those wedding guests? A great wedding favor is a small jar of fall jam or honey labeled with you and your spouse’s name and the date. A great way to commemorate the occasion. Also, place some small gourds and pumpkins at each table decorated in red, orange and yellow ribbon for that extra touch. Encourage each guest to take one with them when they leave.

Hear: Instead of having the reception inside, why not take it outside? Either under a big-top tent or a place where you and your guests can hear the sounds of fall all around them. The crunching of the leaves, the sounds of the birds. As for music, an orchestra is a great way to set the calm, slower-paced mood of fall. It captures the ambiance perfectly.

Smell: The smells of fall are one of the things that make the season so distinguishable from the others. Why not capture that mood, both during the ceremony and at the reception, by lighting soothing candles. To also capture fall, burning leaves is a great way to get everyone in the spirit of the season!

Touch: When you think of touch, your mind might immediately go to what you and your bridesmaid will wear. Fall is all about soft colors, so why not wear a light pink, purple, red or blue dress. And for bridesmaid? If you choose to wear a traditional white dress, consider those red colors for their dresses.

Taste: Food can be a huge concern for many at a wedding. A large factor in choosing what food to serve is the time of the reception. If you have an early reception, why not opt for light finger foods such as a meat and cheese tray. Also, for an extra touch, a bowl of fall berries (think blueberries, raspberries, apples) could be placed at each table for guests to nibble on. If you’re planning on having a dinner reception, fall is all about hearty soups with lots of vegetables. Give guests a choice of soup or chili as well as the usual choice of steak or chicken. And for …

Runway Report 2 – Delhi's Wills India Fashion Week

Wills India Fashion Week saw a blend of established and upcoming designers present a truly unique mix of palette, style and silhouette.

Starting off with the classic cuts and solid drapes of Wendell Rodricks and going into Anamika Khanna, who sure knows how to make a colorless palette look extremely attractive. e. Predominantly black and white with bold gota, draped layered silhouettes and a smattering of cocktail saris; she knows how to say it with style. From her sassy style to Tarun Tahiliani's elegance, there were full length anarkalis with cropped jackets, soft tunics and belted saris in a mostly neutral palette. Ritu Kumar showcased her 'Label' collection with refreshing wrapping dresses and tunics in ethnic prints. An eclectic mix of texture, fabric and style in muted and vivid hues, this we say is a 'must-have' for a mehendi / cocktail party.

Meera and Muzaffar Ali had a few elegant wedding wear ensembles, with woven full length stoles draped across lehengas choli ensembles with zardosi embroidery. Saris in hues of olive, pistachio, teal and pewter with vivid accents lent an interesting edge. Designers Jaya Rathore and Nida Mehmood presented all-out bridal wear. The former, had actress Urmila Mathondkar in a show stopping lehenga, in a beautiful mix of colors ranging from ivory, pastel pink, coral, red, pink and maroon. The latter, said it in true Bollywood 'íshtyle'. Her style reminds us strongly of Manish Arora's brilliance in quirky, fun fashion. She brave the sari her very own unique take, by teaming georgette, chiffon and net saris with jeans. A trendy twist to appeal to youngsters is what she calls it … while we thoroughly enjoyed the show! It all ended with Rohit Bal presenting a grand finale with Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor walking the ramp.

Apart from the heavy dose of glamor, the razzle-dazzle of stars and celebrities and some very serious fashion, we got a lot to take away for prêt, couture and bridal trends, so for all you brides and bride grooms to be, there is inspiration aplenty. …

Hawaii Wedding Planner – How To Plan An Outdoor Wedding

Outdoor marriages in Hawaii are beautiful – except when the weather is not. This is what you need to know when preparing your outdoor marriage (on or near the beach).

1)Have a backup plan in the event of rain. Passing showers are typical in the islands and thought to be a blessing. But heavy rain make for a messy ceremony and/or reception – so, if at all possible, have a “Plan B.” Possibilities are renting a enclosure or scheduling an indoor site. Another idea is having your wedding at a beach front location with indoor facilities such as a resort or estate.

2) If you’re holding your wedding literally on the beach, don’t put chairs directly on the sand if at all possible. The sand is uneven and unstable, and some of your guests may not be dressed appropriately for remaining on the sand. Find a grassy area to place chairs for guests. If you do want your ceremony on the sand, think about renting some type of platform for the chairs to be placed on.

3)Think about the glare of the sun for you and your guests. Try to arrange people where there is minimal time staring directly into the sun. The beauty of the ocean scenery gets lost when you or your guests can’t even open their eyes.

4)If it’s a daytime marriage, discuss having bottled water available for guests as they show up. Maui’s sun can be hot; and individuals can dehydrate rapidly in the afternoon sun.

5) Consider hand-held fans to distribute to guests as wedding favors or as keepsakes to help keep the sun out of their eyes and a cool breeze handy.

6) Consider the local weather service with regard to tide and sunset times. And keep those factors in mind when discussing your wedding time.

7) Don’t neglect to find out all the rules and regulations for the beach or park you are using. Some regulations to look for are restrictions on number of guests; use or availability of electricity; use of amplified music; time allotted. Usually public beaches and parks will only allow smaller ceremonies.…

Beach Weddings – 4 Things You Must Do

A beach wedding ceremony can be beautiful, and if you have always dreamed of having a wedding on the beach with the crashing waves in the background, why not make your dream come true. Although having a wedding near the surf is definitely a wonderful idea, there are some key differences between having it on the beach and in an enclosed location. The following are a few things you need to remember if you plan on having a beach wedding.

Always Have a Backup Plan

First of all, you will always want to have a back up plan if you are having a beach wedding ceremony. You never really know what the weather is going to be like, and if there is a thunderstorm with torrential rain, you probably will need to have another location ready. While you will want your nuptials to be just perfect, it may not happen that way, so you need to have another plan in mind in case your beach wedding gets rained out.

Check on Permits

Always Prepare the Guests

If you do decide to have a beach wedding reception and ceremony, you need to make sure that your guests are prepared. Your guests will not want to show up dressed for a wedding indoors if you are having a wedding out on the beach.

Fashion Jewelry Comeback

The last few years have seen a huge comeback for costume jewelry, with every season's look being complemented by a new range of accessories. High street shops are fully responsible for this as they all carry their own ranges to go with their clothes, but the consumer is also becoming more fashion conscious and accessories are a great way to change the look of an outfit without spending a lot of money.

Costume jewelry comes in all styles imaginable, which means that no matter your taste, you can always find something to suit. Plastic jewelry can make an outfit look kitsch and retro, but diamante jewelry worn with the same thing can transform it into something a lot more grown-up.

One of the best things about costume jewelry is that it's cheap. Mainstream shops sell their ranges for just a few pounds and while it may not be unique, a lot of pretty pieces can be picked up. The cost does not always reflect the materials however; plastic jewelry by a famous designer or artist can be just as expensive as diamonds and gold. A lot of designers prefer working with materials like plastic or glass because of the range of styles and colors that can be achieved.

On the other hand, modern manufacturing processes mean that real materials like diamonds can be replicated to an incredibly high standard, giving you something sparkly at just a fraction of the price. This kind of thing is great if you've got a black tie reception or a wedding to go to, since you can finish an outfit really easily and look great. A good piece of diamante jewelry is an essential part of any girl's wardrobe; even if you only wear it once a year it's still worth it.

Because it's been in production for decades, you really have a huge choice when buying costume jewelery. If you like vintage you can pick pieces up in second hand shops or at boot sales. Some second hand shops even specialize in jewelry and can tell you all about the provenance of items. Iconic styles really make a statement, especially if they're made in the materials of the day such as Bakelite. If you're really lucky you could find a bargain at a boot sale, because sellers sometimes do not know the real value of their items.

The internet is brilliant for looking at all different styles available and getting an idea of ​​price. Just like high street shops, online retailers have their own routes to go with their goods. They often import jewelry in bulk so can sell at a reasonable price and they do not have the same overheads as business with concessions. You might also find more exotic pieces here such as local handicrafts or unusual materials. The internet also gives you access to a huge range of designers so the choice is even greater.

It's quite easy to build up a collection that includes every color, so no matter what …
