A meaningful touch to your Wedding Day is a ‘Fight Box’. Before your big day, find a beautiful wooden box, a bottle of wine (if you drink), and two glasses. Write love notes to each other, explaining your feelings as you prepare to start your new life together as marriage partners. Seal your letter without letting your soon-to-be read what you’ve written.

During the ceremony, place the love notes inside the wooden box with the wine and glasses. Take turns hammering the box shut, one nail at a time, until the box is sealed.

Agree to keep the box sealed until a special anniversary, like your 10th or 20th, unless you hit a rough patch. Then, break open the box, pour the wine, read the letters, and reminisce about what brought you together!

In Yugur culture (an ethnic Chinese minority) the groom will actually shoot his bride with a bow and arrow before the wedding…three times. Ok, so the arrows don’t have arrowheads, but still, thats like getting shot with rubber bullets. Once the deed is done, the groom will collect the arrows and break them, thus ensuring that they will love each other forever. How romantic!

 

Celebrity Wedding Gowns ♥ Audrey Hepburn

We all know that most celebrity marriages do not last, but we can be sure of one thing: stunning bridal gowns.
The actress was known not only for her beauty but also for her timeless style which was reflected by her choice of what to wear during her wedding day. When she married co-star Mel Ferrer in 1954, Audrey wore an elfin tea-length, chiffon-sleeved Balmain. She completed her outfit with a wreath of fresh flowers to create a magical effect.

In Spartan culture, the women would shave their heads and dress up like men before waiting to get stolen away by their groom-to-be. Come on, you’ve seen 300, what did you expect?

Famous Love Stories ♥ Elizabeth Bennett & Mr Darcy

Jane Austen personified two attributes of human nature – pride and prejudice in Darcy and Elizabeth. Darcy comes from a very high social hierarchy and typifies the educated aristocracy while on the other hand, Elizabeth is the second daughter of a gentleman of modest means. Mr. Bennett has five daughters who have been allowed to grow up the way they wanted – no school education or any governess at home. Elizabeth’s very indulgent mother and irresponsible father never gave any thought to the future of the daughters as it is always taken for granted they will “do well” for themselves. To a woman of Mrs. Bennett’s understanding, doing well exclusively means finding a rich, well-to-do husband. For a man of Darcy’s social stature, these were very serious failings of the family and totally unacceptable to his polished, educated and refined mind. Darcy adores his family estate and the future mistress of that estate must be just as polished and refined and from an equally prestigious family. He however falls in love with Elizabeth only to be refused by her initially, and then much later she realized that she can love no one but Darcy. How they become united and understand the love for each other makes a very interesting read.

Famous Love Stories ♥ Napoleon & Josephine

A marriage of convenience at age 26 Napoleon took a fancy to Josephine. An older, prominent and most importantly wealthy woman. As time progressed Napoleon fell deeply in love with Josephine and she with him, but that didn’t deter the adultery on both sides. It was their mutual respect for one another which kept them together and the burning passion between them didn’t falter. They eventually split as Josephine could not give Napoleon an heir, parting ways with both bearing the love and passion in their hearts, for all eternity.

And here’s another one of Elizabeth Taylor’s wedding dresses! Love the headpiece!

The actress deserves a second spot on our list for her bridal gown during her first wedding with actor Richard Burton. The two were married twice but their first marriage was notable for Elizabeth’s yellow chiffon number. The gown had long, flowing sleeves which she paired with a simple headpiece made of lilies of the valley and white hyacinths.
