Ashley Hempel, asked Sharilyn to assist with the veil toss portion of the couple’s photoshoot, but the Maid of Honor decided to take her duties to the next level by making the day of her BFF Rebecca and her husband James Foster even more special with a series of hilarious poses. Fortunately Rebecca was in on the whole thing, but nobody warned James, which may explain some of his own awkward poses. “The groom had no idea what we decided to do,” said Sharilyn, “but once we started acting goofy, he played along and was laughing.”

Despite the seemingly impromptu nature of the shoot, the Maid of Honor revealed that the prank had actually been a long time in the making. “It was based off a photo Rebecca saw that we both decided we had to recreate,” she explained. “This was two years before the actual wedding!” So remember, all of you potential bridesmaids out there, if you’re going to upstage the bride, just make sure you have permission first!

This Couple’s Reaction To A Dog Who Crashed Their Wedding Just Won The Internet

Tuesday , 16, April 2019 Comments Off on This Couple’s Reaction To A Dog Who Crashed Their Wedding Just Won The Internet

If someone’s going to crash a wedding, it’s usually an estranged family member, bitter ex, or just some random stranger looking to score free booze. One couple in Brazil, however, received an uninvited guest of a more furry, four-legged sort, and a truly heartwarming story unfolded.

Marília and Matheus Pieroni were just beginning their tented São Paulo ceremony when, instead of the bride herself, a stray dog who had wandered in from the storm outside marched down the aisle to the bridal chorus. The canine was removed as the young couple entered, but just as they prepared to read their vows, he returned – and laid down to sleep right on top of Marília’s veil. Some women may have gone into full Bridezilla mode at this point, but Marília insisted the pup be welcomed as an official guest, which he certainly was. “It was a very pleasant surprise for me, because I love animals,” Marília told The Dodo.

As the night wound down, the newlyweds searched for their surprise acquaintance, but he had crept away unnoticed. Determined to take him in as their very own, a city-wide search commenced for the stray that stole everyone’s hearts. Scroll down to find out what happened next!

This is Marília and Matheus Pieroni, a couple from São Paulo, Brazil, who just got married!

Kids Don’t Tell You They Have Anxiety, They Say ‘My Stomach Hurts’ – Love and Marriage

Saturday , 13, April 2019 Comments Off on Kids Don’t Tell You They Have Anxiety, They Say ‘My Stomach Hurts’ – Love and Marriage

“Mom, my stomach hurts.”

My daughter tells me this almost every night at the same time. She feels fine all day but when it’s bedtime and I’m turning down the lights, her stomach hurts.

Nighttime is when many kids anxiety intensifies. It’s dark, they’re alone, there are no distractions…

We have worked together to conquer her anxiety and she knows I will remind her that her stomach is actually just fine and it’s just her worry.

My son on the other hand, used to tell me his stomach hurt every morning before school. He had separation anxiety and didn’t want to be away from me.

Of course, instead of telling me that, he just said his stomach hurt.

Why do kids say their stomach hurts?

Well, it’s because their stomach actually hurts.

The stomach is home to the enteric nervous system and is even often called your second brain. Big nerves and anxiousness create a real sensation in the belly area.

It makes for quite a cycle because as the anxiety creates a stomach ache, a stomach ache causes even more anxiety and it continues on.

One study discovered that more than half, or 51 percent of people surveyed who experienced stomach pains as children ended up with some type of anxiety disorder sometime in their lives.

The most important thing to remember about kids that often complain of stomach aches (assuming you have ruled out any real stomach issues) is that they are not making it up. They are not lying or doing it for attention. They’re body is taking their anxiety and manifesting it right in the pit of their stomach.

Handling Kids Anxiety

There are many different approaches to conquering kids anxiety. I’m going to leave several resources here for you, but what seemed to have the biggest impact on my children was a simple $13 workbook from Amazon called,

, these plush dolls where children are invited to write or draw their worries and place them in the Worry Eater’s mouth, so that the Worry Eater can hold onto them.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s Wedding Cake Details

Thursday , 11, April 2019 Comments Off on Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s Wedding Cake Details

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have something different up their sleeves for their wedding cake!

While both Eugenie and Jack and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s cakes have drawn inspiration from the time of year of their nuptials, the two statement-making confections have some key differences.

For their May ceremony, Harry and Meghan chose a lemon elderflower cake that incorporated “the bright flavors of spring” and was covered in buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.

But Eugenie, the 28-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and her husband-to-be are going a different route!

For their wedding day, the couple chose bespoke cake designer Sophie Cabot. “The red velvet and chocolate cake will be a traditional cake, with a modern feel,” Kensington Palace said in a statement on Saturday. “It will incorporate the rich colours of autumn in its design and will be covered with detailed sugar work including ivy.”

“I am incredibly excited to be given this wonderful opportunity to create such a special and unique cake,” Cabot said in a statement. “It has been lovely working with Princess Eugenie and Jack and I really hope they enjoy the cake on the day.”

The couple first took notice of Cabot because of the bespoke biscuits she made for her father’s Pitch@Palace program.

Kensington Palace also shed some light on the musical portion of the couple’s ceremony, which will be held on Oct. 12 at St. George’s Chapel.

The director of music at St. George’s Chapel, James Vivian, has composed descants for two hymns that will be sung during the couple’s royal wedding ceremony. Additionally, musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will perform during the couple’s nuptials, as will famed tenor Andrea Bocelli, who will sing two pieces.

“It has been a great pleasure to work with HRH Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank to plan the music for their special day and we wish the couple much happiness for their future together,” James Williams, the managing director of the RPO shared.

Additionally, State Trumpeters from the Band of the Household Cavalry will perform a fanfare that was written for the ceremony.

In a sweet nod to the couple’s family, the wedding will also honor their family’s military service.

“Members of Nijmegen Company Grenadier Guards, of which The Duke of York is Colonel, will line the West Steps of St George’s Chapel as the couple depart after the Wedding ceremony,” the Kensington Palace announcement explains.

The memory of Jack’s great Grandfather, Sir Jack Coke, who was an officer in the Scots Guards, will also be honored as pipers from the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland will perform Scottish pieces from the Garter Tower as Eugenie and Jack depart in the carriage procession.

The ceremony will be officiated by The Dean of Windsor, The Rt. Revd. David Conner, who will also give the address at their wedding. The Archbishop of York has written a personal prayer for the couple, which will be included in the ceremony.

Around 500 guests are expected to attend Friday’s ceremony and the following lunch reception — with celebrity guests such as Victoria and David Beckham, Elton John, singers Ellie Goulding and James Blunt all reported to be in attendance (just as they were for Harry and Meghan‘s nuptials). George and Amal Clooney could also be in attendance, as Jack is a brand ambassador for the actor’s Casamigos tequila company, which he sold last year.

The longtime couple’s wedding will be a weekend-long affair, with a festival-style party complete with a fairground and food stalls on Saturday afternoon on the grounds of Royal Lodge — Eugenie’s family home in the parklands around Windsor Castle — in addition to Friday’s ceremony and festivities.
