Our Modern Latina Bride Shares Her Wedding Day Scrapbook!
By Verky Arcos | 11/16/2011 - 15:30

My bridal blog is slowly coming to an end, so I wanted to be sure to share photos of my wedding day with you. Since I’ve been talking in detail about every aspect of my wedding, I’d figured I had to take you through the day every step of the way as well!

I didn’t realize how much really goes on the actual day of the wedding, so I’m making this a two-part photo album. First, we have the morning prep and the ceremony. Next up is the reception!

Our Modern Latina Bride On Pressure to Have Babies...Already!

I have a very big family with lots of cousins around my age and older, so it seems like there is always someone having a baby. I have witnessed my sister, brother, and several cousins have children (each of few times), but I was never included in that roster since I was the “single” girl.

Our Modern Latina Bride on Whether or Not Kim Kardashian Should Return the Ring

Being that this is a bridal blog, it’s impossible not to talk about the hot topic of the week: Kim Kardashian filing for divorce after only 72 days of marriage! When I heard I was somewhat surprised, I guess, but not entirely since after watching the wedding special (yes, I tuned in, sue me) it seemed as though they didn't agree about much as far as their future was concerned.

Our Modern Latina Bride Feels Pressure to Send Out Thank You Notes
By Verky Arcos | 10/26/2011 - 15:30

The last couple of months have consisted of planning a wedding, having a wedding, going on a honeymoon, and then traveling for over the past two weeks to four different cities for work. Needless to say, it's been a whirlwind of events. It wasn’t until this week that I finally felt like things finally started to slowly get back to normal— and then Hector (the hubby) reminded me that I have to send out our Thank You notes for the wedding!

Our Modern Latina Bride Questions Wedding Etiquette
By Verky Arcos | 10/19/2011 - 12:00

When you decide to plan a wedding it should be to celebrate your love, but some people hope to make it an "investment"—meaning they spend money putting together this special event hoping to make the money back (if not turn a profit).

Unfortunately, from my experience this is not the case. Nowadays, with so many different types of weddings, proper gift giving etiquette has been skewed. I only found out about the whole “etiquette” portion of a wedding planning once I began planning my own. Honestly, I’m still confused about it, especially in the gift giving department.

Hector and I have been living together for about 3 years. Throughout this time we’ve gone through our share of fights, celebrations, and compromising—we’ve shared our thoughts, our dreams, and our life experiences, and have been committed to one another every step of the way.

I’m back from Aruba and it was the perfect getaway, so much so that we extended our stay for a few more days defeating the purpose of a “mini-moon” (a short honeymoon vacation). It was just too good to leave, we relaxed at the beach, celebrated, did snuba (a combo of snorkel and scuba), shared romantic dinners, and even found a decent salsa club to get our dance on.

Our Modern Latina Bride Gets Married!
By Verky Arcos | 09/28/2011 - 15:00

I got married last weekend and I couldn’t be happier… I’m positively glowing! A few days before the wedding, it felt as if I had saved up all the stress that most brides experience through the wedding planning process for the last few days. There were so many last minute things I needed to do and small details like menus and ceremony programs to handle.

And the countdown begins! I am just three days away from my wedding and this weekend my friends and family did a great job sending me off to the great uknown—married life.

We had cocktails at a lounge, dinner at a restaurant, and dancing at a club...in other words, it was perfect! I’m sharing some photos (the ones I can post anyway) to walk you through my girl’s night out. It was filled with love, fun and (just a few) cocktails.

I am just 10 days away from my wedding and I’m finally starting to get a little nervous! Not necessarily because of the commitment I’m making to the love of my life, but because I want to make sure I get all the little things done for the wedding. I have been so on point with checking things off my list that I don’t want to forget anything now.
