Honeymoon Q & A ~ Everything You Need to Know About Passports, & More

Sam Becchetti, Guest Author

Larry’s NOTE: If you plan to travel out of the United States on your honeymoon or destination wedding, call my friend, Sam @ 480-838.9447. I consider her to be one of the best experts on honeymoon and destination wedding travel.

How do I get a passport?

passportsThere are a few easy steps. Be sure to start the process at least 8 weeks before travel, or you may have to pay for expedited service.

• Step 1: Obtain your official birth certificate from your birth state by visiting www.cdc.gov/nchs/w2w.htm.
• Step 2: Complete the application form.
• Step 3: Obtain a valid passport photo (try Walgreens for example).
• Step 4: Make an appointment for an IN PERSON application; you cannot go for your intended spouse! More details on fees & details can be obtained at www.travel.state.gov/passport.

Will I also need a Visa?

This is a little tougher. Most times no, but a few countries will require one even for a shorter term stay. Be sure to check with www.travel.state.gov/visa or your travel agent for specifics for the country(s) you plan to visit. If they do require one, and you do not have one upon arrival at the destination, they can refuse to allow you to exit the airport.

Customs & Immigration – what’s the difference?

At the airport you must pass through both. Immigration is the process of inspecting you and your documents to be sure you are who you say you are and have permissions to be where you are going. This is where they validate your passport (and possible visa). For most this takes just a few minutes with the officer. In some countries they will also distribute a “tourist card” which you must then present upon departure from that country.

Once you collect your luggage, you then go through Customs where they inspect your belongings and your declarations paperwork. Customs monitors the import/export of goods from other countries into the one you have arrived at. So this takes place at your foreign destination as well as returning back to the US. If you have goods that require Duty collection, this is where that takes place. They also monitor for items that are not allowed to cross into the country; a good example is Cuban cigars bought in Mexico are still not allowed to cross into the US and would be confiscated. Since these rules vary from country to country, just because it is in a duty-free shop does not mean YOU can buy and return with them to the US.

What is Duty-Free?

Couple_on_beachYou may see Duty-Free shops at the airport or in cruise ports. Here you are able to buy goods at supposed discounted rates because the shops are not paying taxes (or Duty) on the goods as they have not been imported or exported at the time you purchase. It’s a good idea to know what going prices are to know if the duty-free is actually worth any savings to you. Each country has different allowances of how much “stuff” you can bring back into a country that is duty-free. The US has a limit of up to $800, so anything more that you purchase is still subject to taxing at customs. Know also that certain items have limits on the amounts you can return with – like alcohol and cigarettes.

What if I have an emergency?

There are two things you can do preventatively before departure to assist in the event of an emergency. One is purchase a comprehensive travel protection plan which provides coverages for various reasons (sometimes any reason too) as well as medical coverage as most insurances do not cover you out of state, let alone out of country. The second thing to do is register with the STEP program @ www.step.state.gov/step/ so the Dept. of State, consulate or embassy can help you better in the event you need it.

Will I get jet lag?

Possibly. If you are traveling across more than 3 times zone to/from east/west (not north/south) you may develop the syndrome known as jet lag. It means that your body has not adjusted to the new times for eat, sleep, and overall good function. You may have indigestion, lack of concentration and not sleep well. A good rule of thumb is it takes one day per time zone crossed; North/south does not cause jet lag as that does not result in crossing time zones. You may also just have travel fatigue which is effected by being in a cramped space, re-circulated air, and dehydration. This can happen with any longer flight in any direction resulting in headaches, fatigue and/or confusion. This usually takes a good night’s sleep to remedy.

What happens if we cross the international dateline?

The international dateline is an imaginary line designated to help those in travel. If you are traveling east when crossing the line, you “gain” a day, meaning you are repeating the same date again. The opposite occurs if you are headed west, you “lose” a day as the date moves ahead. The biggest thing to remember is that when you depart, your arrival date may not be the same as your departure because you have crossed the line.

What if I still have questions?

If you had not caught on throughout the various topics, one very good thing to do before departure (and not the day before!) is to check out the www.travel.state.gov website. There you will find answers to things on current issues on the place(s) you are visiting. Do they have any required immunizations or breakouts? Political unrest? While this is good information it should also not set you into paranoia, it is delivered by the government and they want to be sure they have covered any issues that may or may not be a true viable problem at the time of your travels. It might be humorous to read the information provided to foreigners coming to the US by their own countries.

Can You Have a Wedding Reception a Couple Weeks After the Ceremony?

Filed under: Post-Wedding Reception,Receptions — Larry James @ 8:30 am
Tags: ,

Where is it written that you must have the reception right after the wedding?

Some Wedding Consultants will say, “It’s perfectly acceptable.” I agree. Of course you can! It’s your wedding you get to choose. Others may disagree. Some will even consider it “rude” or “tacky.” I say there are only “your” rules.

WeDidre·cep·tion [ri-sep-shuhn] noun
1. a function or occasion when persons are formally received: a wedding reception.

You don’t have to call it a reception. One couple I know announced it by saying they were foregoing the reception in favor of a “Celebration of Love.” She and her husband wore what they wore at the wedding – she in her wedding dress and he in his wedding suit – but for the guests it was dress casual. The bride and groom wanted them to know that the wedding was the reason for the get together. I’m guessing that one thing that was missing was the stress of going through a rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, the wedding ceremony, then straight to the reception. They ended the evening with a brief “thank you” and a fireworks display.

Some couples prefer a quiet, private wedding ceremony with limited guests – family and a few close friends – then plan to party with friends on a later date, perhaps to accommodate people who unable to attend your wedding, e.g, grandparents who can no longer travel, etc.

This also happens when brides and grooms have destination weddings. They come to Scottsdale, get married with a very few close friends, e.g., the maid of honor and the best man who will also act as witnesses then return to their home town. (Most states require at least 2 witnesses to witness the signing of the marriage license – AZ does).

Believe it or not, couples still elope for various reasons. Most will have the reception when they return home with the good news! It may not be “good news” for some, but it’s what the bride and groom wanted.

Take a breather. You will be more relaxed and be able to focus on having meaningful conversations with your family and friends. It’s just a thought. It depends on whether you are willing to break with tradition.

Some will argue that a wedding is a one day event, it includes a ceremony and a reception. That works too! The final decision will only be made by the bride and groom.

I’m told that post-wedding receptions tend to have a higher showup-rate which may mean more gifts for you! 😉 Of course, that’s not the reason you would do it. (Heh heh)

The (sometimes) Awkward First Kiss

Practicing the “first kiss” at your wedding will not make it perfect but it may make it memorable. There are few kisses more important and more meaningful than your first one as a married couple. Planning the perfect kiss in advance nixes problems before they even have a chance to materialize.

firstkissBeckyBrownIt is a Western custom for a newly married couple to exchange a kiss at the conclusion of their wedding ceremony. Some Christians hold the belief that the kiss symbolizes the exchange of souls between the bride and the groom, fulfilling the scripture that “the two shall become one flesh.” However, some trace the tradition to an ancient Roman tradition, whereby the exchange of a kiss signified the completion of a contract. (Source: Wikipedia)

There is no right or wrong way to kiss on your wedding day. A couple’s first kisses as husband and wife is supposed to be gentle, tender, intimate and romantic. A quick peck doesn’t suit the occasion. Neither does a prolonged lip-lock session. It should not be too short since you want to capture the emotions of the moment, but it should not last so long that your guests get fidgety.

You may feel a little self-concious, overwhelmed or shy but this kiss is special and it should be practiced prior to its appearance in the wedding ceremony. You talk about everything else about the wedding, from the guest list to the bridesmaids’ dresses. It’s time to talk about the first kiss.

People love the first kiss and they have definite opinions about how a couple should seal their promises. Most people regard the first kiss as a joyful start of the marriage. Some want passion; some don’t. Some like staged moments; others want to keep things natural. Everyone wants the kiss to be heartfelt and romantic. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of passion between newlyweds, however, if there are children present… keep it PG!

Most couples have a lot of practice kissing. Because of the importance if “this” kiss, you might want to put in a little practice time, especially if you’re doing something you’re not used to, like having the groom dip the bride.

An informal poll of members of The Knot found that just a third of the 71 respondents planned to practice the kiss. Most – 61 percent – said they’ll go with whatever they’re feeling at the moment.

“I have also seen every kiss and act of affection imaginable between bride and groom at the altar: A peck on the cheek, a hug, a fist bump, a long kiss on the lips, a series if kisses on the mouth, a full open-mouth tongue kiss, kissing through tears of joy, and kissing so passionately that friends and loved one scream, “get a room.” ~ Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway

When consulting a couple about their wedding ceremony I always recommend that the first kiss needs to be held a little longer than usual. If the groom goes for a quick peck on the lips the kiss can seem cold, and disappointing and most important of all, it may be missed by the photographer. Holding it just a few seconds longer than necessary is important so the kiss will not be missed. Most importantly, it should feel right to both of you. You may hear a guest shout, “Get a room!” but at least the kiss will be remembered. Some photographers recommend a five-second to seven-second kiss, which should be plenty of time to snap a frameable shot without making everyone around you uncomfortable.

firstkissEmilyBlakeAt my wedding ceremonies, I usually say, “You may now seal your promises with a kiss!” Once the Wedding Officiant announces the kiss…

• Pause, then look at each other and allow yourself to smile

• Make eye contact with each other until you kiss and close your eyes

• Do something with your hands. When your hands are motionless, you don’t look like you’re truly enjoying the kiss

• Decide which way you will tilt your head to avoid bumping noses

• Keep your mouth closed for the most part – a partial smile is always nice

• Hold it for five to seven-seconds so the photographer can get a variety of photos from full body to close up

• Pull apart slowly afterwards and feel free to show some emotion throughout

• Go for a short second kiss if you enjoyed it!

It’s nerve-racking enough to kiss in front of dozens of guests whose eyes are glued on you. I’m not suggesting a “rehearsed” kiss, however, knowing in advance how you are going to do your first kiss will help make things easier. Like anything else in the ceremony, having a sense of how you would like to kiss and be kissed can relieve any “performance” pressure.

Future Reference Fact: Smooching actually reduces stress – something every woman planning a wedding needs. Kissing is also good for dental hygiene, and since French kissing uses all 34 facial muscles, passionate sessions on the sofa can burn 6.4 calories per minute. 😉

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Filed under: Wedding Tips — Larry James @ 8:30 am

“This tradition comes from an Old English rhyme (“Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”), and the four objects that the bride adds to her wedding outfit or carries with her on the big day are just good luck charms. Don’t stress too much about them – they are the little tokens of love your mother, sister, other relatives, and attendants will give you at the eleventh hour (although you can give them to yourself, too). Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity, although this remains largely a British custom.” ~ The Knot

The Morning After the Night Before…

The day after your wedding can be a time to simply be together… or you can jump back into the fray and charge full-speed ahead ignoring the fact that you have just been through several stressful days and probably could use a rest. Your body, mind and soul need a break!

DoNotDisturbSome couples don’t plan for “the morning after the night before” very well. They have guests from all over the country who have taken time (and expense) of attending their wedding and they feel obligated to entertain them the rest of the weekend. I can understand the need to visit with relatives and guests, but the day after your wedding might just be an opportunity for you both to chill. Make your apologies, arrange to have family do the entertaining and get on with your day… together.

Some couples plan to leave the next day for their honeymoon and leave the entertaining for the weekend up to the parents, etc. One couple I married recently had a limo pick them up at the reception and immediately left for the airport and their honeymoon. This, in my opinion, is never a good idea. The wedding and reception may cause extreme exhaustion. Plus, if you have a rehearsal, there’s the stress of the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner, plus the possibility of a hangover or two. Caution: Don’t party hearty the night before your wedding. Both are very big days.

dayAFTERweddingYou may want to read, “When to Schedule Your Wedding Rehearsal…” – this article has some great planning ideas for the rehearsal. The honeymoon is very special so give yourself a couple of days (or more) to rest before you leave, otherwise you may need a vacation after the honeymoon.

Don’t worry if you’re not being able to take a big fancy honeymoon. You have the rest of your lives to make money and take big, wonderful, fabulous vacations. But you only get “one” wedding. Do it well and be happy. Check out my “Honeymoon Check List.”

Some couples postpone their honeymoon trip until after they know they have survived the $$$’s they spent on the wedding. 😉 That’s probably a better idea if you feel you must spend time with family and friends the day after the wedding, but what could you both consider doing the day after the wedding that might get you new life together kick-started?

Some will obviously not agree about skipping the day after entertaining… that’s okay. You get to do what YOU want to do. It’s only and always your choice. Having said that, here are a few suggestions to consider. I suggest 3 specific things to consider:

jumping-on-bed1. Rest – Spend the night of your wedding at a hotel. When you enter the room… head for the bed and do some celebratory bed jumping! Some hotels offers some specials for newlyweds. Ditch you cell phone. Let anyone who calls, leave a message and check your messages when you check out. You may want to tell the hotel to have calls go directly to voice-mail. Handwriting the “Thanks yous” and opening your gifts can wait until later or even after the honeymoon. You are beginning a new chapter in your lives. I encourage you both to make some wise choices.

2. Recuperate – Rest and just be together. Sleep late. Snuggle with your partner. Move slowly all day. Spend time with your best friend… your wife/husband. Only do what your heart tells you to do. Laugh together. Celebrate! Be cool. Take a dip in the pool. Have some fun, this is YOUR day. Order room service. Enjoy each other. Trash the dress in the hotel pool and give your camera to a stranger by the pool to capture the moment. Get a massage and spa treatment – You deserve it! Talk without speaking… this step requires a bed. Utilize the “Do Not Disturb” door hanger. Take this little overture as an opportunity to reflect upon your hopes and dreams for the future.

3. Reflect – Talk, talk talk. Communication is a good thing. Really listen to each other. Be grateful for a terrific wedding. Laugh together about the things that didn’t go so well, e.g., the ring bearer ran all the way to the alter, gave the ring to the best man and ran back to his seat. Do you feel any different since you are now married? Talk about what made you feel loved and special about the wedding. Re-read the vows that you spoke to each other during the ceremony.

At the end of the day, of your wedding day, the only thing that matters is that you have married the man/woman that you love. Never lose sight of that.

So, What About Wedding Gown Sizes?

Filed under: Wedding Dress,Wedding Tips — Larry James @ 7:30 am

My friends in the Bridal Shop business tell me the wedding dress sizes vary a lot. “If you think you’re a size 6, you’re at least an 8 and probably a 10,” says Jeff Moore, senior vice president of merchandising and product development at retailer David’s Bridal.

The order is based on the woman’s largest measurement: bust, hips or waist. If her hips and waist are an 8 but her bust a 10, she gets the 10; if her bust and waist are 12 but her hips 14, she gets the 14. Why? In alterations, it’s much harder to make a gown bigger than it is to make it smaller. Just like “street” clothes, same-size wedding gowns come in different proportions and measurements.

Here are 3 tips from Allure Bridals:

1. Measure your bust – Lift your arms, and wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust. Where the measuring tape overlaps is the measurement that you should use.

2. Measure your natural waist – Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, which is approximately 2 inches above your belly button.

3. Measure your hips – Measure at the fullest part of your bottom and thighs. See our size charts below. You may not line up with one size so choose a size with your largest measurement.

The bride’s dress size is just a number, however, it’s not the number she’s used to. We say all that to say this: Make sure that you choose your dress size carefully. You would be wise to consult one of the professionals at your favorite Bridal Dress Shop.
