postheadericon Marriage Guidance Counseling for Better Relationships

In every marriage, couples would usually have this period of marital bliss, or the so-called honeymoon stage. But later on as they continue in the relationship, there would be instances wherein they would hit a rough patch or two. Individual differences and preferences would surface, which would lead to conflicts. Normally, such conflicts could easily be resolved by the couple themselves, especially if they are trivial ones. Others would confide in other close family members or friends to vent out and ask for advice. But there are also instances wherein certain conflicts are quite hard for them to handle, or they are not confident about sharing their marital problems with relatives due to possible misinterpretation. It is during this time that they would decide to turn to a marriage guidance counselor for assistance.

Marriage guidance counseling is a certain type of therapy applied by counselors and psychotherapists that has the main purpose of clarifying the issues or misunderstandings raised by the couple, identifying the causes of the conflict, finding ways on how to solve them and improving the overall state of the relationship. We know that no marriage is perfect, and couples who have a hard time communicating needs an intervention in order to prosper in their relationship. However, not all couples are required to consult with a marriage guidance counselor as long as they have constant, open communication.

Oftentimes destructive behaviors such as alcoholism, infidelity and abuse stem from issues such as lack of communication, boredom, lack of appreciation, broken trust, misunderstandings, over-suspicion, problems with sex life, and at times inability to bear children. When the said behaviors are not able to resolve the problems themselves, it could worsen, resulting in violence that could be made more complex when there are children involved in the said conflict. At this point intervention from a third party is deemed essential not only for the sake of the relationship but for the overall well-being of the family.

In the therapeutic session, the marriage counselor can either meet the couple at the same time or one at a time depending on the preference of the clients or as mandated by the court, in case there are certain legal matters that might be involved in the situation. After the interview session, the counselor will listen to each one and will either closely guide the couple in arriving at a sound decision to the solution of their problem, or give specific instructions in proceeding to the sessions, especially when both parties are not open anymore. If the sessions prove to be ineffective, then procedures for legal separation or divorce will follow suit, such that the counselor would need to assess the couple’s psychological state that would be useful in arriving at a corresponding decision whether in the personal or legal sense.

In most cases marriage counseling techniques have been proven to be effective in facilitating the couple while they hit a rocky part in their relationship. Being able to understand what’s happening with the aid of the third party can help them get a different perspective on the issue. This in turn will enable them to be more understanding of each other, and at the same time more open not only to ways of solving their problem but to ways on how to make their marriage last despite imperfections-this time with or without the aid of the counselor.

postheadericon Tips For A Black and White Wedding

Weddings are often celebrated with a theme or motif that the couple has chosen early on during the wedding preparations. This theme or motif is often used all throughout the wedding and in various wedding details. There are many different popular themes and motifs that are often used in weddings and just like in fashion, there are trends that crop up every year.

Among the unusual wedding motifs that are slowly becoming somewhat popular is a blackand white wedding. Unlike other color motifs, is a color that some may think to be inappropriate for a wedding. However, modern couples do not let such things dictate what they can and cannot do on their wedding.

The good thing about a black andwhite wedding is that it would fit almost any venue, whether you choose to have your wedding in La Castellana, Manila Hotel ballroom, or Mango Farm, the mix of black and white will always have that elegant and classy feel. If you prefer a garden wedding, going for a garden-inspired venue such as The Oasis or The Glass Garden will more than suffice.

Below are some more tips to help you some more in preparing for your black and white wedding.

Use white as your base and black as your accent. To avoid a dark and somber look, use white as your base color and black for accents. This will provide beautiful contrast without looking too grim and gloomy. Limit black to accents such as black ribbons to tie white flowers, black designs on white table napkins, black table runners on white tablecloths, and many more.

Get a good black and white photographer for your engagement photos. Blackand white photos can look very beautiful and dramatic if taken by a talented photographer but it can look bleak and dull if the photographer is not a good one. So make sure to have your engagement photos taken by a photographer who has excellent skills and extensive experience in taking black and white photos.

Consider incorporating damask designs. Damask in black andwhite is beautiful, dramatic, and elegant. You may want to consider incorporating this design in some or all of your wedding details.

Ask guests to follow your color theme. A blackand white wedding will only achieve the look that it is supposed to have if everything is in black and white. So make sure to explicitly ask your guests to come in either blackORwhite attires only – no other color in their ensemble.

postheadericon Wedding Myths and Traditions

The bride’s symbolic walking down the wedding aisle with her father to her side.

This tradition dates back to an age when daughters were thought of as the property of their fathers and were ‘given away’ on their wedding day to become the property of their husbands. Most brides continue with this tradition in modern times as it has become a symbol that their father is giving his blessing. Many brides do opt to do something different, for example walking down the aisle with another family member (maybe if their father is no longer with us) such as brothers, uncles, stepfathers or their mothers. If they have older children many chose to walk with them, again often as a symbol that they give their blessing. Many couples who perhaps are older and do not have any parents still alive chose to walk together as a family with the children if they have any. Some grooms choose to walk down the aisle with their mother’s to balance things up!

Wedding rings being worn on the left hand fourth finger.

This tradition started way back in Roman times as they believed that the vein in this finger ran directly to the heart. Before this wedding rings were worn on the index finger. Couples have been exchanging rings as a symbol of everlasting love (the unbroken circle) for thousands of years. Originally they were made from hemp (not very long lasting), then iron in Roman times and then precious metals in modern times.

The veil.

It is believed that its origins stem from the days of ‘arranged’ marriages. The bride’s parents would hide her appearance until the marriage was legal and the dowry had been paid. The groom would then lift the veil as a sign of dominance over his wife. If the bride wants to show her independence then she should lift her own veil. It is also thought that wearing a veil wards off evil spirits.

The bride having something old on her wedding day is said to represent the link between her, her family and the past. Examples are jewellery, the wedding dress and/or veil and tiara or head dress.

Wearing or having something new represents the transition into adulthood and good fortune and success. Most brides have a lot of ‘new’ things on their wedding day anyway but a nice touch is a gift of jewellery from the groom.

Tradition says that if brides have their ‘something borrowed from a happily married friend then it would mean that their good fortune and joy will be bestowed on the new bride and groom.

So why should brides wear something blue? Well, blue is said to represent loyalty, love, fidelity and purity. Blue in the garter or other underwear is a good way to include the colour without it being on show.

In modern times the sixpence in the shoe is all but forgotten. It is thought to bring financial wealth to the bride and her new husband in their future life together. Some searching with coin dealers should enable you to purchase a real sixpence for a unique twist on the traditional wedding sixpence. A 5p piece would be a modern equivalent.

Date and time of the ceremony.

Couples often chose a Saturday to get married as this fits in easiest with people’s working lives and gives everyone another day off to recover.

It is said that the couple should tie the knot as the minute hand is rising towards heaven, i.e. between half past and the hour.

Chimney Sweeps.

It is said that King George III was on a journey in his carriage when the horse bolted and he was carted off in fear for his life. It was a chimney sweep who was brave enough to step out and grab the horse managing to stop the carriage without any harm coming to the King. The King therefore decreed that all chimney sweeps were lucky and should be treated with respect.

There are also a few other traditions and myths:-

Rice or grain was traditionally thrown at the couple to encourage fertility in modern times this has, in modern times more often than not been replaced with confetti.

The bride always stands to the groom’s left hand side as this leaves him free to draw his sword and fight off other men who would like to take her for themselves!

It is considered bad luck if the groom sees the bride or her dress before the wedding day and good luck if he doesn’t. It is believed that the luck increases if he doesn’t glance at the dress as she walks down the aisle. Some people say it is so that he does not have an opportunity to change his mind, again coming from the days of arranged marriages! Couples nowadays stick to it because it adds to the excitement and anticipation, building up to the moment that the groom sees his bride as she arrives beside him.

postheadericon Introducing Fancy Custom Bondage Leather Slave Collars

A fancy custom bondage leather slave collars showcase the wearer’s possession. These are worn by couples and both the persons wearing this collar around their neck represent to the world (AND to their partner) that they are owned by each other. It is a concept that most of the people follow to symbolize their loyalty, dedication and affection towards someone. For some partners it is a mutual deal amongst themselves, but some others conduct a special ‘collaring ceremony’ just as we organize weddings. The major compositor of a bondage collars is a collar base made up of leather, rubber or metal. Additionally, the beauty of the base is enhanced by studding a lot of precious and semi-precious gems over the collar. Now, before knowing about the different kinds of bondage collars that are available for purchase these days, let’s have a quick sneak peak over its history. After all, we should know that how this concept came into existence.

History of Unique Jeweled Slave Collars

During 1st Century, iron collars were used by the Romans to identify salves out of the normal citizens of their Nation. Later on, the same concept was used by British during 18th Century. Slowly and gradually, the material used in making these collars switched from iron to leather. Later on, in 1980s a completely new tradition emerged. According to it, a person searching for a partner used to wear a leather collar with an open padlock. And, the one who was committed wore fancy custom bondage leather slave collars with closed padlocks. Now, it has become a trend for most of the people.

Two Different Kinds of Unique Jeweled Slave Collars

1. Wolf Collars – As the name signifies, wolf collars were tied around the dog’s neck to protect them from wolves. The long, sharp spikes around the leather band protected the dog from wolf’s attack. Now, as the BDSM Community is widely adapting the concept of wearing slave collars, the sharp spikes of wolf collars are coated with plastic to ensure safety of the wearer.
2. Neck Corset- These are designed to support the weight of the head on the shoulder. It helps the wearer in maintaining the posture by keeping the neck extended and chin high. These can also be paired with traditional corsets to attain a better body posture.

Additional Information on Bondage Collar Designs

Bondage collar can be permanently fixed ones or the removable ones. You can buy them in pairs. Usually, the slave does not wear this collar on his or her own, that is why the master (or we should call – the other partner) buys this for him/herself and their spouse. There are usually three kinds of bondage products available, i.e. Neck Collars, Wristbands and Leads. You can get the plain ones or custom designed ones according to your own choice. People prefer buying bondage collars studded with 18k Gold coated semi-precious and precious gemstones. For buying these bondage collars, you can contact Couture BSDM, the world famous retailers of bondage collars and other products.

postheadericon Finding the Right Reception Center

When you are thinking of holding an event the first thing that comes to mind is the reception centre. It is important to book the venue well in advance to ensure that you do not have to compromise in that department later. Even if you are booking a birthday venue make sure you do it well in advance as this party cannot be postponed or celebrated before time. Birthdays are best celebrated on the designated date. However, finding the right venue can be a task so here are some guidelines that might help.

  • Location – The whole point of hosting a party is to gather people and celebrate together. If you pick a location that is too far away, many people would be reluctant to come. Make sure that you pick the birthday venue close to easy public access points so that people from far and wide can attend the event. Make sure there is clear access to bus, rail and other public conveyances nearby. It helps if your chosen reception centre has a web presence where the location is clearly marked on the map. This makes it easier to inform friends and relatives about the exact location so they can conveniently navigate to it.
  • Size – We all have a fair idea about the number of people that will be attending the party, especially in bigger events like a wedding. With RSVPs being maintained, we can gauge almost the exact number of people who will attend. That is why it is important to select a location of the adequate size. Do not think that bigger is always better. If you do not have a substantial number of guests an overlarge reception centre will look empty and awkward. It is better to go for a small to medium size so that the guests have a cozy feeling. However, make sure that there are enough chairs around so that even if all the guests get tired together, they each have a place to sit.
  • Parking – At a time when most people travel by cars, it is essential to hire a birthday venue that has ample parking space. If there is designated valets to park the cars then there is nothing like it. However even if there isn’t, enough space in the parking lot will guarantee that even the amateur driver will find a parking spot without denting cars. Having an onboard parking lot will also be a big relief for the guests as they do not have to constantly worry about the running parking meters and neither do they have to worry about the safety of the car when parked in a dark alleyway. Besides, who likes to walk miles when draped in fineries!
  • Catering – A reception centre that offers catering services is hard to find but if you find it, you can consider yourself lucky. Even so, go through the list of menus meticulously, arrange for a tasting if required. It would be disastrous if the perfect birthday venue serves the most pathetic food. Once you have confirmed that the food is of good quality, you can go ahead and choose the menu that will be most appreciated with your band of guests.

Finding the right reception centre is no rocket science. It just needs some effort, some thought and wee bit research.
