Today’s featured wedding video comes to us from Marry Me Movies, based in Sydney, Australia! Here’s the Marry Me Movies team to tell us more:

Every bride is stunning and every dress is beautiful. Coming from an Asian background, May’s dress was like a layered piece of artwork, bathed in yellow and white, splashed with bursts of blue. The colours were striking, especially against the interior of the Rendezvous hotel, and the exterior of the urban Melbourne backdrop. For the reception, May changed into a long, red dress that was intricately embroidered. Oh, and our wedding cinematographer noted that William looked handsome too, of course!

Congratulations May & William and thank you to Marry Me Movies for sharing! For more information about Marry Me Movies, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Cristina Pereira, Founder & CEO of PaperStudioByC, based in Porto, Portugal! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

Creating has always been a part of my life. Ever since I was a little girl that I created birthday cards for my parents. I LOVED doing it and I’d stay hours creating to stay perfect. I always thought that they could get better but I did not yet know what I should do to improve. My parents always loved when I’d gave it to them, and I always felt very proud of myself for knowing that I did something so special and unique. I was already a perfectionist and dreamer and I did not even know it yet. And these are some of the words that define me.

The wedding invitations came into my life as I began to organize my wedding. The first step was the creation of invitations and I thought it was going to be a huge challenge. After all, they were going to be our appeal to dozens of people which would receive them and enjoy them. I felt a great urge to be me doing them, I knew what I wanted and I started to create. I had some difficulties mixing colors and materials, it had several times changes until I felt it was perfect … It was that invitation that was our face and what I really liked.

Things Happy Couples Do Differently

Today’s insightful guest post about things happy couples do differently, brought to us by dating advisor Sarah Williams, is full of super practical suggestions for nurturing a happy relationship! Enjoy:

When in a couple, your whole world changes. For some, it’s quite the struggle. They feel obligated to make compromises, feel like they are missing out on a lot now that they have someone to share everything with, and often keep things to themselves, or try to guess what their partner isn’t telling them.

But there’s the other type of couples too. It’s where balance is over everything else. The 2 people are grateful to have found each other and nothing else matters. They are smiling and laughing most of the time, and don’t pay much attention to the issues that come up every now and then that have the potential to turn into arguments.

So, what’s their secret? We’d all want to be more like them. To feel blessed when in a couple, rather than as if we’re settling down. Well, there are a few things happy couples do differently than the rest. Let’s see what these are, why they work, and how we can try them in our relationship:
