For a quick romance fix (or wedding ceremony reading inspiration), we present to you one of Shakespeare’s most famous sonnets, 116. You might remember it from English class or the super-swoony film featuring Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson, and Hugh Grant, Sense & Sensibility.
Either way, it’s a gorgeous sonnet that, once read, stays with you!

One of us here at Lea-Ann Belter has bridal showers on the brain. A sister is getting married, and she is trying to plan a fun, modern party.
The favors are almost chosen, as is the décor, but lately she’s been worrying about what sort of games guests might play that the bride-to-be would enjoy. When our intrepid planner stumbled across the idea of newlywed mad libs, she was so excited we thought she’d won fabulous shoes!
So, of course, we had to share her find with you. With room to be sweet, sassy or even a little racy, filling out these mad libs is sure to be as much fun as reading them. Plus, they’d be great made into a little book as a keepsake for the bride-to-be.

Planning a bridal shower but don’t want to go the traditional route? We’ve got four fun alternatives:
1. Yoga Class: Perfect for relaxing, yoga’s a huge favorite here at Lea-Ann Belter Bridal. Lots of studios will schedule a private class for groups, and afterwards everyone can head to a nearby café for a light lunch. If yoga’s not for the bride, you can substitute any kind of class – dance, pottery, cooking, flower arranging, cake decorating, knitting, etc.
2. Dinner and a Movie: Some theatres will schedule private screenings, but if not, buy tickets for the latest romantic comedy.

The person you’re marrying is so amazing that you thank your lucky stars every day. In fact, your new partner-in-crime-for-life is so special you want to thank the people responsible for bringing him into the world.
How do you do that?
With a thoughtful memento that has the staying power of an heirloom!
This handkerchief embroidered with such a heartfelt thank you is an idea we had to pass on.
