For the first few months, everything is exactly how you pictured it would be... there are no fights, you see eye to eye on everything, and it seems as if the two of you are going to take over the world.
The truth in life is that everyone has problems. No one is perfect, and there's no such thing as a perfect marriage. People grow, change, and have conflicting beliefs. What's important is the love between the two of you. If that is still present, and you want what's best for each other, fix your problems and get on with your life together. It really is that simple.

You have chosen the ceremony and reception venues, photographer, wedding cake, food, flowers, and everything else. It seems it is all under control and moving along slightly. Those, of course, except the honeymoon destination. You and the groom have tallied it down to a few choices. You meet and decide on Costa Rica. Once that general decision is made, now you must get more specific.

Not only will your friends and family be jealous when they see your photos, but don’t be surprised to see them booking a trip there. This will forever be a most memorable way to begin your married life.

Living the single life is great. You have your own place where you can be an individual and can live the life of a free adult without having to worry about what your significant other may think. Marriage, however, has its own rewards and many would argue that those rewards outweigh the privileges that come along with the single life. If you are planning on giving up that lifestyle to join the ranks of the married, there is one very important thing to remember – from now on, you will need to make some compromises.
Marriage really can be a great thing when the two people work as a team. Making decisions together is a wonderful way to make that team grow stronger. If you take that chance away from your partner, you will learn pretty quickly not to take it away again.
No matter what you wear; the cardinal rule for guests of weddings is don’t upstage the bride. Summer weddings, particularly, cause us to go overboard with strapless dresses and over-the-shoulder blouses. There are many appropriate dress styles for hot weather. Let’s explore deeper into what styles to choose.
If it is a highbrow wedding, Max Azria dresses are your best bet. Celebrities like Alicia Keys, Halle Berry, and Sharon Stone all don these trendy dresses for their chic style. This designer brand is built on bold colors that push the envelope. Women with a low-key fashion approach prefer simpler brands sold at department stores. They can show up at a summer wedding with these dresses, opting to instead use accessories such as scarves, necklaces, bracelets, or shoes to dress up their outfit.
Catalog shopping is very popular with those who are busy or just don’t like to deal with crowds. You can wait for the publication to arrive in the mail. Once it arrives, browse through to find a dress suitable to your personality, body type, style of wedding, and price. Order online or through an 800 Number and wait for it to arrive at your door. Allow enough time in case you don’t like it or need a different size, so you can return and exchange.
A growing number of people prefer to search for designer and non-designer dresses and other outfits to attend weddings, online. You search brand websites and order. As with catalogs, allow enough time for possible returns and exchanges. Then, when the big day arrives, you will be the second to the bride in turning heads.

During the ride you will witness animals such as Monkeys, Toucans, or Sloths, in their natural habitat of lush tropical landscape. When you need relaxation from the hiking and riding, a good soak in a natural thermal hot spring might be just the romantic interlude.

Your wedding day will be perfect. You have spent plenty of time and money planning it, you have stressed about it over and over again, and you have done everything in your power to make it as perfect as possible. Now that all of the plans have been finalized and confirmed, as you are getting ready to send out the invitations, you realize that you really don’t want cigarette smoke messing up your perfect evening. Luckily, this is your day and your rules, and as long as they know ahead of time, your guests should have no problem leaving the cigarettes at home.
It’s true that your wedding is one of the most important days in your life. But in this economy, to have the attitude that you’re going to have the wedding of your dreams no matter what is a little lofty. Yes, you could take out any number of easy loans for bad credit, so that you don’t have to worry about being turned down, but you’re going to have to pay those loans back eventually. If Mom and Dad aren’t helping with the cost of the wedding, you may well find yourselves in your first situation of debt as couple together. Hopefully, you only get married once and that is a good reason to do it up right, but take it easy folks. Five years, 10 years, 15 years down the line, you can renew your vows on the beach in the Bahamas and everything will be beautiful, in its own way. Hopefully, by that time you will have established yourself financially and be in a better position to do so. That said...
...You get the picture.
