Building Your Perfect Wedding Ceremony – 2 Questions to Bring Your Families Together at Your Wedding

That ancient question, “who gives the bride to be married?” is a hangover from the marriage ceremony’s life as a financial contract. What it’s really asking is “Who owns the property.”

Nice, eh?

So, you probably don’t want to ask that question.

However, you do want your parents to be able to answer a question. Parents always have. Parents always should. Buy in helps. Get both sets of parents buying in! You’re going to need their support, so get it early. You also want them to answer in time-honored words. So choose questions that allow them to answer either “I do” or “I will.” That will make it feel “right.”

Who comes here with A to welcome B to their family? (and then reverse!) Ask a question that allows your parents to announce both their love for you and their willingness and pleasure in welcoming your partner in to their fold. Gone are the days when a one of the couple left his or her house to live in the other family’s house. No one leaves a family these days as they marry; they join the other family. These are the bonds that make divorce difficult. These are the bonds that make families strong.
As A and B marry, Are you willing to celebrate everything that lies ahead? Ask a question that invites your parents to form a clan around you. Ask your families if they’re willing to celebrate your future together? There’s a lot coming up for you. There are careers and houses and should you want it children. You want to be able to mush everyone into the same house and celebrate the passages of life. You want people to be able to comfort one another if there are accidents or illness. You want people to be able to hang out at a back yard barbecue. You want your families present throughout your marriage.

Build your families into a unit that not only celebrates at your wedding ceremony and reception but that also wants to witness and support your wedding vows. Invite them to continue to enjoy these relationships during your marriage.

Tip: Families are not separated by marriage; they are built by marriage. Mix up the clans, give them reasons to come to know one another and have yourselves a much richer life and marriage!

Bottom Line?: Give your relationship the chance it deserves to succeed wildly, against all odds! After all, you deserve it. Your relationship deserves it!

Dining tables are important for families and friends to dine together

dining tables play a big part in any celebratory event. You have spent hours planning and cooking a meal. You have your starter organised, the main course is prepared and the ultimate dessert is ready. Where is the one thing you can set all of the food down to be eaten? Of course, it’s the table meant for dining. dining tables are important as they can provide us with a focus for gatherings.

Even if you are not sitting round the table, it’s likely you will set food and drink out on it so your guests can help themselves. Therefore, dining tables play host to our celebrations by allowing us to have all of the lovingly prepared food and carefully chosen wine available for the party. The table can be pushed against a wall and used almost as a buffet table for food. It’s probably the only place in the house you can set down all that you need for a celebration.

dining tables play a part in our memory recall of happy occasions and gatherings. Who hasn’t sat down at a table and not reminisced about some party way back in the old days? Family get togethers may be rare occurrences these days as we often work in different parts of the country or different shifts. Wouldn’t it be nice therefore to plan a get together for when your travel or shifts conspire to get you all in the house at the same time? Make a date to spend time with your family around the dining table.

The warmth and love generated when we sit together as a family is something to cherish, because as said it doesn’t happen often. Make the family get together special events. Set the table with your best cloth, napkins, china and cutlery. Even if you are sitting around having a takeaway, turn off the TV and sit together at your dining tables. You will be surprised how easily conversation flows and how enjoyable that can be.

It’s probably fair to say we have lost the art of dining. I don’t know anyone who would set a table with all the knives and forks that old-fashioned etiquette dictated. To have an enjoyable meal you don’t need that, and it would certainly confuse my guests if I laid out fish knives and forks along with the cutlery for the main course and the dessert! Modern day meals are likely to consist of Chinese or Italian food, so chopsticks and fingers are de rigor for those styles of eating.

To enjoy dining there are two key ingredients; your guests and the conversation. You could have beans on toast and still have an evening round your dining tables to remember. Don’t dismiss dining at your table completely, use it and be proud to use it. Introduce the art of dining back into your home and with your family. Your dining tables can be the hub of a great evening, so bring back dining, and remember it doesn’t have to be fine dining to be enjoyable

When Families Get Together

When family gets together, after you have all grown into adulthood, you may find some issues that take attention to resolve in order for occasions to be enjoyable for the entire family. Many issues you will find, simply fall by the wayside, as we get older and realize that much of what we viewed as problems, as children, were the result of viewing things through immature grids.

Some things, however, do take conversations to set things aright, these times of clarity happen in all families, it is not a sign of dysfunctional behavior, merely a mature way of dealing with the issues that stop us from receiving the full joy of family relationships.

How we approach most of these issues, will help determine the outcome of the efforts we put forth to settle matters or clear them up. Always approach any issue of discord, with the greatest of caution, remembering that your hope is to resolve past offenses, not create new ones.

Many times a person will start conversations to settle a matter, at an improper time, or without consideration for the setting in which they find themselves, complicating the resolution.

When you decide that you absolutely need to address an issue, make certain you have considered letting it pass, by just your own understanding, or reevaluation of the incident, if you find, after much thought, contemplation and meditation, that you do need to address it, go into it very meditatively. When we take time to meditate on an issue, we will find ourselves arriving at crossroads that can bring peace even in the most difficult of confrontations.

When children grow up in families with siblings, ofttimes the child will believe that one or another was the favorite, only to find, as in the case of my own childhood, that my siblings felt that I was a favorite of our parents.

There are no perfect parents, however as we become parents ourselves, we find that we gain much in comprehension of how we want our children to allow for our shortcomings!

Use much consideration, before attempting to deal with any matter that demands your attention to settle old issues or dealings, in this way, with Wisdom as your guide, you will be open to how you should approach the healing process.

When families get together as adults having grown up in the same household, the mere relationship will often be enough to overcome most issues, without ever having to debate the wrongs that each sibling perceived!

Let the fun begin, let the family enjoy the time they have on this earth, by being more expansive in their understanding and love for one another, forgive as you would have others forgive you!
