How does it work?
Classes are broken down into three tiers:
1. Planning stage 2. Day/week of the actual wedding 3. After the wedding
Customers may choose from any or all of the class offerings in to tailor their own wedding yoga class packages. Studio space is available for large groups. An individual class or any combination of the classes may also be chosen.
. Classes can have a theme, for example; special music, incense, candles, poetry and other texts may be included. . All religious and sexual affiliations are welcome.

Diana and I wanted to share some tips and ideas for your wedding day that will hopefully prove useful!
1. Something Blue
your name, your fiancé's name, and your wedding date on a blue satin
ribbon that you'll sew to the inside of your wedding dress.
2. Back Up
earring back? Secure your earring with a broken-off pencil eraser. If
there's no pencil in sight, try a small bit of cork or a piece of
chewing gum (recently used, then dried).
3. Lovely Lapels
If you choose sprigs that echo your bouquet or centerpieces, many florists will toss in boutonnieres for free.
4. Fly Girl
pesky flyaway baby-hair wisps by blow-drying around the hairline with a
one-inch-diameter round brush. Then apply a firm-hold hair spray.
5. Pucker Up
defined lips in bright colors are so last millennium. Go gossamer by
smoothing a bit of foundation on the edges of your lips before adding
color, which also prevents feathering around fine lines.
6. In Your Own Words
Write your own vows to make your ceremony like no other. For inspiration, check out poems.com.
7. Art Hour
Be sure to
get everyone's autograph by passing your guestbook around at the
reception. Include colored pencils, markers, and calligraphy pens to
encourage guests to be creative.
8. Chic and Sweet
For cocktail centerpieces, fill vases with brightly colored candy. Buy the sweet stuff in bulk from Candy Warehouse
9. Glowing Cocktails
How to spice up your cocktail-hour margaritas? Dim the lights and add glow-in-the-dark stirrers (lightgod.com).
10. Signature Song
What's more romantic than a song written just for you? Hire a composer to create your first dance music (weddingsongwriter.com).
11. Giving Thanks
hotel room, place a thank-you basket for guests when they come back
from your reception. This special touch will be sure to surprise even
the most astute out-of-towner.
12. Sentimental Thank-Yous
each bridesmaid an album of photos of the two of you. If you haven't
known a particular bridesmaid for that long, not to worry: Just fill
her album with photos from the wedding.
13. Beautiful Bad Weather
the weather part of your photos. Think formal portraits against a
striking backdrop of stormy skies or candid shots of your groomsmen in
a fun-loving snowball fight.
14. Food Fest
culinary tour for your bachelorette party. Start off at your preferred
pub for cocktails, then have appetizers, main courses, and desserts
each at a different restaurant.
15. Natural Choice
Gaiam.com sells organic cotton sheets and woven-seagrass coffee tables,
while greenfeet.com is a great resource for recycled glass dinnerware
and soapstone pizza pans.
16. Fun Farewells
than jumping into a limo after your reception, take off via hot-air
balloon, helicopter, tandem bike, or motorboat. For a wintry affair,
leave by horse-drawn sleigh or dogsled.
17. Honeymoon Fund
with Distinctive Honeymoons (distinctivehoneymoons.com) or Honeymoon
Wishes (honeymoonwishes.com) for extra money toward your trip of a
