“Our Souls Are Mirrors” by Rupi Kaur

god must have kneaded you and i
from the same dough
rolled us out as one on the baking sheet
must have suddenly realized
how unfair it was
to put that much magic in one person
and sadly split that dough in two
how else is it that
when i look in the mirror
i am looking at you
when you breathe
my own lungs fill with air
that we just met but we
have known each other our whole lives
if we were not made as one to begin with

The Wedding Dates to Avoid in 2020

By Kim Forrest

Check out our list of dates in 2020 that you MIGHT want to avoid for your own wedding day.

Many couples choose to avoid holding their weddings on holidays, because of concern that guests won’t be able to attend due to longstanding travel plans or family events. Holiday weekends can also be more expensive for you, because vendors may be extra busy with other non-wedding events (think florists on Mother’s Day or caterers on Thanksgiving), as well as for your guests, who might have trouble booking affordable accommodations and flights. You also may want to steer clear of major sporting events or other big national or local events – and traditionally “unlucky” days, like Friday the 13th. But really, your wedding date is your choice—if you don’t think hosting your wedding on a particular holiday will affect the planning too much (and there aren’t any religious exclusions), then go for it!

Check out our list of wedding dates to (potentially) avoid.

Practical Reasons for Choosing a Winter Wedding

By Harvey Mcewan

There is many a benefit to choosing a winter wedding as opposed to the very popular and somewhat cliched summer affair with sunny photos, bright florals and a garden party.

Due to so many people choosing to wed during the summer, the winter months are a cheaper time of year to tie the knot. In fact, many venues advertise special winter deals and offers to entice people to book then instead of the busiest summer period. Savings can be astonishing so look into a package deal. You can even expect service to be more personal as staff have more time on their hands to attend to each couple and their requirements.

With winter a less popular season, venues are also less likely to be booked out very far in advance as they tend to be in the summer. This is good news to engaged couples who don't want to wait 2 years or longer to say their I dos.

Snow makes for an amazing addition to a winter wedding. Though this is never guaranteed, if it arrives on time, your outdoor wedding pictures will look even more spectacular. Imagine yourself and your partner striking a pose against a beautiful backdrop of snow-covered trees and a frozen lake or pond. The color couldn't be more appropriate for a wedding!

A factor many people might not even consider is how much easier it is to appreciate a three course meal in the winter than during the summer when the heat affects people's digestive systems. In the summer, people can really struggle to finish their portions, while in the winter they'll be happy for the chance to warm up with some tasty food. Besides, the menu should reflect the season so think of all the gourmet goodies it could feature, from hearty soups to chunky pieces of steak.

Wintry venues in the city could include hotels, local attractions such as museums and botanic gardens, and other, more obscure event venues.

To give you an idea of the range of potential settings, here is a selection of venues available for hire in the UK. Hoping to tie the knot in Edinburgh? Consider venues such as the Botanic Gardens, Mansfield Traquair and the Caves. Getting married in Leeds? You can get hitched at Leeds United Conference and Events Centre or Weetwood Hall. In Manchester, venues like the DoubleTree hotel Manchester Piccadilly and The Castlefield Rooms are ideal for a winter wedding.

Harvey McEwan writes on very varied topics from organizing weddings at a hotel Manchester Piccadilly to going on an exotic holiday.

Wishing all those getting married Congrats. We wish you the best of luck. If you want your wedding or anniversary announced send it in to

How To Choose Chairs For Your Wedding

By: Vincent Guo

I get asked all the time how to decorate for a reception. Every wedding has its own unique style and flair. I have recently seen so many new types of chairs that have entered the wedding market. I know, I know….how can chairs really enhance a reception? Well, my thoughts are, if you are looking to do something different, then focus on what your guests see when you first walk in. Yes, there’s the flowers and the lighting, but you cannot overlook the chairs. Here are some suggestions for styles of chairs that you can rent for your event which we have recently discovered:

Chiavari Chair – This style of chairs is very popular and it is not really new but it is the most cost effective. It’s a style that can fit in both a modern style wedding, as well as formal. They are versatile because you can make the seat pads any color and have more padding or less. The rental price for this style is usually around $10 per chair.

Ghost Chair – The ghost chair is a fairly new entry into the wedding industry. It offers a more contemporary and modern look as it’s a chair that is transparent (thus, getting its name "ghost"). It can come in clear, or any other color, and adds a unique look to your event. The rental price is pretty costly, between $20 -$30 per chair. Or you can buy ghost chairs from at a price of $35.

Tuffeted/Pleated – These types of chairs can be used for more formal and elegant style events. The style of this chair is pleated with more material. It usually gathers all over. These are more affordable at a rental price between $5-$10.

Chameleon – This is a sleeker choice that adds a fabulous touch to a more contemporary setting. The rental price is high, but it is a choice that would fit in beautifully especially if you are having a smaller wedding. What is great about this chair also is that you can add accessories to it to add some flair such as broches and sashes! You can also use different colors to have this chair bland in with the surroundings. The rental price usually ranges from $10-$30 each.

Napoleon Chair – These have a more vintage feel to them. They are also known as the "Versailles Chair". They would fit great with a wedding that has a more traditional theme. These typically rent out for about $10 a chair.

Choosing the right kind of chair can make a big difference in how your wedding/reception look comes together. It is worth it to invest some time in researching what style fits best for your event. Most of us have seen the Chiavari chair, but most wedding do not use these other types. Instantly, your wedding will be different if you invest in these other types of chairs. Remember to always think outside the box!

We are manufacturer of wedding chairs since 2001, and we are wholesaling various of Wedding Chairs including Chiavari Chairs, napoleon chairs, ghost chairs and etc.
