Healthy for Your Wedding Day

Last week was miserable. I got stranded in two airports trying to fly to our Columbus office only to arrive at 2:00 a.m. Sick. I spent the next two solid days in bed and the next ten on medication to get well. It hit me hard and fast.

 
So that made we wonder, “What if the same thing were to happen to a bride or groom just prior to their wedding day?” The last thing anyone wants is to be sick for their wedding!
 
First, how to stay well -

 
  1. Eat plenty of fruits and veggies, get your dairy, and some of that protein stuff, too
  2. Avoid sugar
  3. Consider becoming obsessive about washing your hands
  4. Take a multi-vitamin
  5. Consider getting a flu shot or flu mist
  6. Exercise moderately
  7. Get plenty of rest
  8. Get plenty of rest
  9. Get plenty of rest
  10. And . . . don't stress :)


 
What to do if you DO get sick -

 
  1. Drink lots of fluids
  2. Get plenty of rest
  3. Get plenty of rest
  4. Get plenty of rest
  5. And . . . don't stress
It sounds pretty simple - both the staying healthy and the getting healthy - but as simple as each of those things are, how many of you are over taxing your body by working out too hard, not getting 8 hours of sleep, and either over-indulging in food due to stress or starving yourselves to make sure you fit in the dress? Scale back and make taking care of yourself your number one priority.

A healthy bride glows from within!

The Man Cave, Now That's What We're Talkin' 'Bout!

You heard about it first from The Knot on their list of Top 11 Wedding Trends of 2011 but let us be the first to tell you all about the concept of the Man Cave (or Corner, as some may call it). Better yet, bring your groom and come see a real Man Cave for yourself at the 2011 Bridal Party event! On Sunday, February 20, 2011, the Capital Club, Comfort Photography, and Details, a professional planning company, are sponsoring a bridal event like no other. One of the many major differences that sets this experience apart from most other bridal shows is our introduction of the Man Cave. The Man Cave is a special section of the show set aside for, as you probably could have guessed, men. It includes vendors from the elements of the wedding that are usually coordinated by the groom, such as transportation (limos, party buses, etc), travel agents for the honeymoon, and menswear (for the groom, groomsmen and ring bearer). The Bridal Party Man Cave is going to include a few extra goodies – such as a representative from the cigar shop, The Tinderbox, as well as a personal trainer from the gym, The Rite Bite.


Of course, when The Knot wrote about the Man Cave experience, they were referring to having a Man  Cave at your wedding reception. What a great way to dedicate a portion of the party to the men in your lives! If you’re thinking about creating a special section for males, you may want to include cigars (as we are for the Bridal Party), brandy or some other “manly” alcoholic drink, a video game system, or blackjack or poker tables. Don’t limit yourself to just those things – get creative, think about what the men you know would enjoy and determine how to incorporate those activities.

If this sounds like something you’d like to have at your wedding reception, ask your man what he would like to see for the Man Cave. This is a great way to get the groom more involved in the wedding planning process without overwhelming him. Allowing your man his own “domain” in the planning makes him feel as though he’s contributing, too, but in a way that is most interesting to him. That’s not to say that he shouldn’t be involved in other aspects of the process as well but this way, he’ll have the opportunity to voice his opinions in the areas about which he cares most.
