"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master..." ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

25 August 2015


Brides to be have a number of things to think of when planning their wedding. However the most important element in their wedding is their wedding dress, as they would be the center of attention at the weddings. Brides to be have to ensure that their wedding dress is perfect and looks great.

There are a number of wedding dresses to choose from and the number of choices is what actually makes selecting the perfect dress so hard. The bride to be is constantly bombarded with better options. The most famous style these days is the ball gown wedding dress, which is a full length dress.

When we say perfect it encompasses all the elements of a wedding from floral arrangements to the most important factor the wedding dress. Brides to be are spoiled for choice from the plethora of wedding dress styles available, from simple dresses to ball gown wedding dresses. Those who prefer a high profile wedding usually opt for the ball gown wedding dresses as it reflects the grandeur of the wedding whilst others prefer a simple white satin dress.

Ball gown wedding dresses come in a variety of colors and styles, the most common color is white and is sometimes paired with a color belt or sash. Ball gown wedding dresses have different designs, some have bead work on the upper half of the dress whilst others have ruffles on the lower part. Some ball gown wedding dresses also have small ribbons and bows attached to them to add to the style.

An alternative to a ball gown wedding dress is the mini wedding dress and a two piece wedding dress. The mini wedding dress is basically a small white or cream dress which falls just above the knees. It is a pretty modern dress but is not preferred amongst brides who usually like to opt for a more traditional looking ball gown wedding dress.

Often brides to be go for the most expensive ball gown wedding dress thinking the more expensive it is the better it would look. What they do not realize is that certain styles suit certain body shape and some brides end up looking hideous while clad in a designer ball gown wedding dress because it does not suit their body shape. It is always recommended to obtain an opinion of a few close friends before deciding on the final dress.
