The whiteness of the snow and it's wonderful flakes, Christmas cakes, color like Red and Green, Christmas balls, the holly, the mistletoe, etc. are really very many elements with which you can play using them at your leisure. in this Inspiration Board, however, we wanted to concentrate on only two colors, White and Red and of them we based the whole wedding.

As for equipment, aim for simplicity, in fact, thanks to the theme, you can safely reduce the use of flowers and exploit instead those Christmas items that you like and in this case, given that the main color is red, such as Christmas balls hanging here and there, or placed on the table, the classic candy-shaped stick that you can also enter in the compositions, red and white crystals to be put in pots or spray on the table as if they were magic dust.

And finally the sweet table with a feast of delicacies as usual, with panettone, nougat, meringues. To top it all, choose a cake that always contains the elements or colors of the theme of your wedding, in this case, Christmas being the main theme, we suggest you use White as the primary color that is reminiscent of snow and in decorations opt for some references to the winter season, such as berries, pine cones, etc. No one will regret the classic wedding cake. A toast to Christmas and love.

nice post about marriage

What shocks me is how expensive weddings are becoming, less about the couple and more about being seen to have spent lots of money, a wedding lasts a day, a marriage, if you are lucky, a lifetime.

A great post, I love the photos you used. I was also interested to here you mention lillies as they are more often used as a flower at funerals than at a wedding here in England. I had yellow and white carnations at my wedding.

Weddings can be magical, the only thing that makes me sad is that people forget what love is... and that means that there are just as many divorces as weddings.

A Wedding Day is a special day, without any doubt. Planning and preparing one can be exhausting, thank Heavens for wedding planners lol ;).

You should have suggested also that brides are not to drink before their special day, because it shows (and the fair colour of their dresses enhances it even further)...

Brilliant post, mate!

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house. My friend, John lives in Central Park Resorts at the heart of Gurgaon. I'm not a huge fan of Gurgaon given the dusty roads, pollution, bad traffic and civic sense, but Central Park Resorts is another world in itself - an ample green environment with the usual facilities like amphitheatre, gym, spa, kids play area etc. But two things really caught my eye - the town-ship is automobile free and golf buggies are used to commute on surface. That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.

But what really got to me is the second thing - something situated inside the Central Park Resorts township. Read on:
