The Intentional Relationship Based Life Of Love

Today’s show topic on Violet Wisdom Inspiration Radio with hosts Molly Friedenfeld and Marie Langle is all about the importance of living an Intentional Relationship Based Life of Love.  Life is all about relationships – it’s not about the cars, the clothes, the cash. Life truly is all about relationships. When we leave this earth we all know the material things that have taken a lifetime to acquire must stay behind.  So why not put the focus and energy on those things that you do get to pack in your spiritual bags when you leave this dimension – those very memories of the relationships that were formed along the way.

Today’s radio show – The Intentional Relationship Based Life of Love:

  • How to have an intentional relationship based, event or family get together.
  • How to have live a life that is full of love and light.
  • How to create a “pay it forward” movement instead receiving gifts.
  • How to have a wedding that leaves the guests thanking you for the opportunity of being present at your union instead of viewing it as an obligation.
  • Making a conscious decision to live a life in which relationships come first.

In India, the Hindu marriage ceremony is over 5,000 years old. The marriage ceremony is performed in the presence of a sacred fire and an assembly of family and friends. There are many different steps in the ceremony but it’s the same basic concept.  The valuing of the relationship between all the people not just the bride and groom is what is important.

Saptapadi meaning Seven steps and Seven vows.  Here are just a few of these steps:

▪   Together we live with honor and respect, providing the necessities of life for each other and our family members.

▪   Together we will develop mental, physical and spiritual balance.

▪   Together we walk acquire knowledge, happiness and harmony through mutual love, trust and respect for our elders.

▪   Together we will maintain self restraint and longevity.

These principles really are synonymous across all religions.  If you break this all down again it’s all about valuing relationships of all those around you.

Intentional Relationship Based Wedding Tips:

  • Create a wedding day that is relationship based and not event based.
  • Make your event personal by keeping your guest numbers down.
  • Keep your stress level down on the big day by making it a point to stay within your bridal budget.

Handmade Tulle Pew Bows for Wedding Ceremony Under $100

Keep your wedding decorating costs down by using pew bows instead of real flowers to decoration your location during the ceremony.

There are many great reasons to use pew bows: 

  • They are reusable
  • They are re-sellable
  • They are easily transportable
  • They won’t wilt or die

Here’s how easy it is to do:

You can buy the pew bows online or purchase pre-made from a store.

We found the handmade tulle and ribbon pew bows (pictured) on Craig’s List for only $60.  This was 50% off what they would have cost if we were to purchase them at a store and they were much more elegant.  There were 18 pew bows total.  We purchased them as “second hand” bows from a bride who was selling items such as her gift card box, unity candle holder, rose petals and pew bows after her wedding.  The bride we bought them from a told us she came up with an idea to have a “bridesmaid bow making party” about one month before her wedding. What fun!

Here’s How To Have a Pew Bow Making Party:

  1. Go to Michael’s Arts and Crafts or Party City and buy the tulle and ribbon.  Keep an eye out for coupons in your Sunday paper for 20% off materials.  The bow making “how to” instructions are marked clearly on each package.
  2. Pre-cut the tulle and ribbon so everything is ready when your friends and family arrive for the “bow making” event.
  3. Serve simple appetizers and drinks for the “bow makers.”
  4. Maybe even watch a fun wedding themed movie while making bows such as Bridesmaids, Runaway BrideFour Weddings and A Funeral or Wedding Crashers.

Simply Chic Bride Suggestion:  At the end of the event perhaps have all the bow makers drop their name in a hat for a drawing as a thank you and give away a gift card, a music CD or a gift basket filled with great smelling lotions and soaps.

Pew Bow Storage, Transportation and Pew Bow Clips:

**Important Tip**   Most churches will not allow anything to be taped or affixed to the church pews.  The clips slide over the top of the pews for easy preparation and dismantling after the service.

  • Once the service is over have your storage tubs handy and a person designated to carefully place the bows back in the tubs to avoid wrinkling for easy resale.

What a wonderful, Simply Chic Bride way for your family and friends to create a great pre-wedding memory and keeping costs down at the same time!
