LOVE THIS 1. Separate hair into 3 sections, per usual with a braid. 2. Braid 2 of your 3 sections into small braids and leave your third section as is. 3. Braid the 2 braids and the section you left out together loosely and secure with a hair tie. 4. Once secured in a hair tie, loosen your braid to make it look fat by gently pulling on each side of your braid and mushing it up.
Bridesmaid survival kit poem: There's chocolate to give you that sugar high And a packet of tissues in case you should cry. Lip gloss to help you care for your smile. If a nail should break, I've included a file. There is Shout if you should spill on your dress and lifesavers to keep your breath minty fresh. There's Aleve and Tums if it's ill that you feel and Band-aids to help you tackle high heels. I've put everything in this handy pack so you'll know that this bride has got your back!
This is a bridge in Paris. You hang locks on it with the name of you & your boyfriend/girlfriend/bestfriend then throw the key into the river. So even though the friend/relationship may end, you can’t remove the lock. It stays there forever, as relevance to someone once a part of your life. -- Totally just added this to my bucket list!

why is the wedding ring worn on the fourth finger? There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese..... Thumb represents your Parents Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings Middle finger represents your-Self Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner & the Last (Little) finger represents your children Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together - back to back Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb - tip to tip Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)..., they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, and have to leave you sooner or later. Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers (representing siblings)...., they will also open, because your brothers and sisters will have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives. Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representing your children)...., they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day. Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse). You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT....., because Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick and thin!!
Wow.... Why the wedding ring is worn on the fourth finger: The Chinese give a beautiful explanation to this. The thumb represents your parents. The index finger represents your siblings. The middle finger represents yourself. The ring finger represents your life partner. The little finger/pinky represents your children. Hold your hands together like the picture. Join your middle fingers back-to-back, and the remaining fingers tip-to-tip. Now, try to separate your thumbs. They will separate because your parents are not destined to live with you forever. Rejoin your thumbs and separate your index fingers. They will separate because your siblings will have their own families and lead their own lives. Rejoin your index fingers and separate your little fingers/pinkies. They will separate because your children will grow up, get married, and settle down. Rejoin your little fingers/pinkies and try to separate your ring finger. They will not be able to separate because your life partner is meant to be with you throughout your entire life, through thick and thin.
Prior to the wedding, the bride & groom wrote a letter to each other. During the ceremony, they put the letters into a box containing 2 bottles of wine and symbolically hammered it shut. If their marriage ever endured serious hardships in the future, they promised to sit down together, drink the wine and read the letters that reminded them of how much they loved each other on their wedding day. What a beautiful idea.
