How to figure out if your partner is the one
Choosing the right life partner is of paramount importance. The cornerstone of a strong marriage is built on trust, responsibility, love and mutual respect. So before you seal the deal with that special someone, be sure he or she possess these virtues. And make sure you know everything about them – even down to their allergies!

How to choose the perfect wedding venue
Your wedding day is an important celebration. Take extra care to choose the most ideal venue, for you to host the party of the year! Some couples want a glamorous wedding location venue to boast their social status, while others may want it small and romantic. A beach wedding is a popular choice with its magnificent view, cool sea breeze, soft white sand and a buffet of delicious seafood. Wherever you choose to exchange your vows, make it a memorable place for loved ones to remember your special day always.

How to look like a wedding belle, not a wedding clown
What you wear reflects your personality. For a couple’s big day, comfort and style make beautiful photographs. Remember, you have to shake at least a hundred pairs of hands, stand for hours and smile endlessly for the camera. If you need to change outfits throughout the day, pick classic and elegant pieces. Avoid gaudy colours, ruffles or a seven-layer dress!

How to get your entire guest list on social media
If there’s one thing on your wedding to-do list that costs nothing, get Facebook and Twitter to spread the cheer. Forget expensive wedding invitation cards! Forget buying a bunch of international postage stamps! Create a meaningful, personalised event page on Facebook to confirm who’s coming. It’s one way to tell the world just how cool you are.

How to shop like a princess
As your big day approaches, you will be juggling hair, nail and dress-choosing appointments. There will be little time to make several shopping trips, so what you need is a (small) army of ‘fairies’ to run your errands. We’re talking about your bridesmaids and other helpful friends. Delegate tasks to them, such as buying art and craft for your wedding scrapbook, hassle the caterers, check out the venue, plan your hen party or be a shoulder to cry on when you have pre-wedding jitters!
