Wedding ideas – Secret Garden

When we are little girls we often dream of our wedding day. We dream of walking through a wood and come across a secret garden and there, in the garden stands ‘prince charming’ the man or our dreams, the man you want to spend the rest of your life with

The Bouquet

No matter the shape of your bouquet the flowers will represent a mix of flowers that you picked on the way to your secret meeting place, hidden in the lush gardens.

The destination

Whether inside or outside the wedding hall and reception should reflect the wild nature of a garden. This includes many flowers or draping to give the effect of a hidden garden

Reception

Decorating ideas should include lots of different colours.

Table arrangements

Depending on your own personal style you can choose one large arrangement per table or 3 vases of flowers. It is always important to remember to keep your arrangements in odd numbers as these appear more appealing to the eyes.

Bridal party

Choosing bridesmaid dresses for this theme can include light or dark colours of pink, purple, red, orange or green or any other floral pattern. A nice tough is flower garlands in their hair so they look like fairies in your secret garden of love

Stying fit in a Foreign country

 

Staying fit is pretty hard. You have work, family and other daily occurrences that makes it hard to stay fit. When moving to a new country you have other factors at work like not knowing where any gyms are and not being able to communicate with the locals to find the right price for gym membership among many others.

When we first arrived in Korea we were like Hansel and Gretel at the gingerbread house. We ate everything we could find. We were in food heaven, but as it turns out it wasn’t really heaven. :p

To get my mind in the game again took me a very long time, I must confess. Luckily because we don’t have a need for a car in Korea, we walk everywhere. We can walk for hours on end. We tried joining a few gyms but our first gym ($45 per month) was very uninspiring so we didn’t go everyday and then later we joined a “fancy” gym ($80 per month)It went well for a few months but we started going less and less until we skipped weeks on end. We eventually cancelled our membership but decided that we still have to keep going, so we started going to gym at the park and now that it’s warmer its becoming easier to go everyday. We do a variety of things. Sometimes we jump rope and sometimes we do pull-ups on the bar equipment.

In addition we generally do bodyweight type exercises. My husband goes to the Gym once or twice a week (we pay $2.50 per day) to exercise the muscles he can’t exercise at the park. We also ride our bikes ever so often.

On the days that we don’t go to the park or ride our bikes we try and walk for 20-30 minutes so as to keep moving. I’ll keep you updated on our quest for health and fitness.
