These days, many brides are opting for wedding heels that are very low. The reasoning behind this is for their own comfort and for personal stability while walking around and dancing in the shoes. Low wedding heels come in many types. Most of them are half an inch to one inch tall. Below are a few main types of low wedding heels that brides can choose from.

Ballet slippers: Ballet slippers are a popular choice amongst brides. Many opt to get them in pink to add a little color to their wedding dresses. The ballet slippers are very comfortable and tend to mold to a person’s feet very well. Plus, they are stretchy and elastic so they go right on the foot and don’t give a lot of pressure. Usually, they have a very low heel if at all.

Elegant flats: Many designers are making fantastic flats these days. Some of the most comfortable ones are made by Tory Burch. Stuart Weitzman and Marc Jacobs also makes some wonderful and fun flats. The flats come in all different shapes. Some are t-straps, some are simple flats, some look a little like Mary Jane’s. The number of colors and styles are simply wonderful and oftentimes, you can wear your wedding flats again. If looking for white flats, try and look during the late Spring and early Summer when white is used by many designers. If looking for color, then look all year round. You’ll find some fantastic red flats and green flats in many different stores.

Kitten heel slides: Slides with a small kitten heel are perfect for the bride looking for low heel shoes. The small kitten heel is sometimes thicker for more stability. The feet slide right in and the straps usually come with different designs. Then, in the back, the ankle is free to move around. Kitten heels are great for the girl that wants something easy to put on and still have a little height.

Bridal flip flops: There are many different types of wedding flip flops out there. Some brides opt for very simple flip flops that they just get from a regular store such as Old Navy or J. Crew. Other brides order special bridal flip flops that come decorated with little rhinestones or bridal lettering. Finally, there are also some fantastic rhinestone flip flops that brides can find in stores, especially during the summer. These will match both their wedding dresses as well as future summertime outfits.

Low wedding heels are a great option for brides looking for something easy to slide into, comfortable and easy to wear again in the future.

If you are looking for a wedding flower that is elegant, graceful, and modern, look no further than the lovely calla lily. Available in several sizes and a spectacular array of colors, calla lilies make a wonderful choice for bouquets, centerpieces, and more. These are some of the ways to include calla lilies into a fabulous wedding design.

Calla lilies are quite different than Asiatic or day lilies. Rather than a profusion of leaves fanning out from a center, calla lilies are shaped like one graceful open bell or vase. Their sleek form is wonderful for creating floral displays that are graphic, restrained, or contemporary. Callas can be used in more traditional ways, but for the most part, they are favored by brides seeking a modern chic style for their weddings.

Your bridal bouquet is really like another accessory for your wedding gown. The distinctive look of calla lilies is perfect with certain types of wedding dresses. Their slender shape makes them ideal for slim gowns, especially those created from fabrics such as silk charmeuse or a fluid double faced satin. It is a fabulous and stylish look to pair the slim shape of a calla lily bouquet with a stiletto style pair of drop Swarovski crystal bridal earrings. If you want to introduce some sparkle into your bouquet, think about adding some Swarovski crystals to the handle wrap to tie in with your bridal earrings.

Calla lilies make excellent single flower bouquets (as in one variety of flower, not one single bloom).They cluster very tightly at their stems, and then flare out to a beautiful full round bouquet. Another stunning option for callas is a dramatic arm bouquet tied with a big satin ribbon with long trailing streamers. This is an interesting alternative to the round bouquet, and it is also a nice way to showcase the long stems of the flowers. A nice thing about a bouquet that is nestled in the crook of your arm rather than held in out in front of you is that it does not obscure any of the details on your gown.

If you choose to combine calla lilies with other flowers, look for ones that have a similar line. One gorgeous look is a round bouquet of callas that is bordered with a big ruffle of cybidium orchids. Orchids are one of the flowers most frequently paired with callas, as they have a complementary shape and also the same sense of sophistication and modern elegance. As textural accents within a grouping of calla lilies, you can try some of the spikier plants, such as bear grass, veronica, and grape hyacinth.

The clean lines of a calla lily make for a great minimalist boutonierre for the men in the wedding party. You can keep it completely simple with just a single bloom with a ribbon wrapped stem. If you want a little more detail in the boutonierres, introduce fun textural accents such as hypericum berries or even feathers. These are boutonierres that the groom and his attendants will be pleased to wear.

The graceful and lean lines of calla lilies and their impressive array of color options make them a natural choice for the centerpieces, as well. They tend to look best in simple arrangements that show off their unique shape and long stems. Tall clear vessels are the ideal vase for a chic calla lily centerpiece. The elegance and modern style of calla lilies makes a wonderful addition to any contemporary wedding design.

The bride’s bouquet is one of the most special parts of the wedding. There are many ways to make it memorable and unique, such as the choice of flowers, the way that they are arranged, and any embellishments that you choose as a finishing touch. One of the most fabulous ways to dress up your bouquet is with eye catching crystal wedding jewelry.

Wedding jewelry has become a very popular accent for much, much more than just the bride herself. Customized crystal wedding jewelry is one of the most spectacular toppers that a bride can choose for her cake, whether it is in the form of a bejeweled crown, or rhinestone leaves and flowers. Likewise, the bouquet is a place that can be decorated in some very special ways to make it completely breathtaking.

When you are thinking about adding crystals to your wedding bouquet, the first thing to consider is what type of effect you would like to create. You can make it subtle or grand, depending on your wedding style. Do you want your bouquet to have a delicate shimmer or an all out explosion of sparkle? Is your wedding modern or vintage Hollywood inspired? These are the types of questions to ask yourself.

Once you have decided on the effect that you would like, the next step is to sit down with your florist and design the bouquet. One simple way to add a touch of glamour to your flowers is to choose a bouquet that has the stems wrapped in a wide satin ribbon. The ribbon is the perfect place to pin a piece of crystal wedding jewelry, such as a sparkling brooch. This can be a great use of a family piece, or if you do not have anything from your relatives, you can pick up a crystal or rhinestone brooch online or in a vintage shop.

Some brides want to have some sparkle mixed in with the flowers themselves, and there are some fantastic options available. If you like the effect of twinkling crystals evenly interspersed throughout your bouquet, then wire individual diamond or round Swarovksi crystals to tuck in with the blooms. Another beautiful idea is to put crystals into the centers of some individual flowers. You are surely looking at a high labor cost from your florist for this, but a very crafty bride could even consider adding this accent to her bouquet herself (or better yet, have a friend do it on the morning of the wedding).

For a more opulent and glamorous look, you will want to make the crystals a stronger design element. A fabulous effect can be created by having very large teardrop shaped Swarovski crystals grace the edge of the bouquet. They will swing and catch the light like magic as the bride walks down the aisle. For an even more eye-popping bouquet, choose crystals with an AB finish, which will throw a beautiful prismatic light.

Whatever special crystal details you choose for your bouquet, keep in mind that you can add a similar special touch to the rest of your wedding flowers. Whether your wedding theme is a winter wonderland, or modern elegance, the effect of crystal wedding jewelry in your bouquets and centerpieces will be absolutely stunning.

Why is my new lcd flat panel tv fuzzy no matter what I do?

I just purchased a new samsung lcd tv, and the picture is fuzzy even when using a dvd player. I have tried composite, component, s, and hdmi connections. I have also tried to hook up a playstation 3 using an hdmi connection, and according to the salesperson, the picture should be crystal clear with the ps3′s blue ray technology. I am an aircraft mechanic and an engineering student, so I have no trouble rigging up electronics. The Picture is just absolutely crappy with zero change regardless of the connection that I use. The tv is also supposed to have an atsc tuner built in. Is it at all possible that the picture is so lousy beacause the tv is a 720p? Once again, I was told by the salespeople that 720 is still high def, and the picture should be wonderful. Any insight you could offer me would be great! The tv model # from samsung is LN-S4041D. Any help you all can offer would be greatly appreciated. If you need to go intogreta detail about what is wrong, I will post my email.

Hi, I’m not sure how much help I can be but my father in law had the exact same problem. He tried adjusting everything and even had a person from the company on the phone to walk him through what he needed to do. Finally, he got fed up and just brought the TV back and exchanged it for a new one and this one is perfect. It turned out the TV was just damaged and that there was nothing that could fix it. Not sure if that is the same problem you are having but you might want to try a new TV to be sure it isn’t just a damaged television. Good luck!

Does a Swarovski or Rhinestone collar really make your dog or cat be more “prissy?”?

It sure seems to.. Just like when they come home from the beauty shop it is as though they know they look better. Do you think they can feel your adoring energy and respond to that? I know they are so sensitive they can feel you are in the neighborhood as many studies have shown. My cat HAS to have a crystal collar on or she drives me nuts! Funniest thing is I think she thinks it makes her pretty or am I crazy here?

if you like it…she┬┤ll like it 2….

There is no need to waste money on fancy jewelry cleaning solutions. You can save money by cleaning your jewelry at home using things you’ll find in any kitchen or bathroom.

Cleaning Your Silver Jewelry

Use a soft bristle toothbrush with mild soap and warm water to restore the shine and brilliance of silver jewelry. Avoid immersing your sterling silver jewelry into jewelry cleaning dips, they should be cleaned by hand. Use a soft cloth to buff your silver jewelry for a nice, clean shine.

Cleaning Your Diamond Rings & Jewelry

Use a solution of six parts water and one part ammonia. Use a soft bristle toothbrush or toothpick to remove any dirt or particles from any crevices. Rinse well in water and buff dry with a soft cloth.

Cleaning Gold, Platinum and other Gemstone Jewelry

Use a solution of mild dishwashing liquid, like Ivory. Soak jewelry in this solution for a few minutes, then lightly brush away any dirt with a soft brush. Rinse with lukewarm water and air dry or buff with a soft cloth. Be sure not to soak any soft stones like turquoise, amber or lapis, as soaking can damage their polish. For particularly dirty gold jewelry, soak in alcohol or ammonia before cleaning.

Cleaning Pearls

A mild soap and water solution works well for cleaning pearls. Then wipe dry with a soft cloth.

Electric Guitar Crystal

Electric Guitar Crystal

Certainly, if presented with an acoustic guitar and an electric guitar, most people can identify which is which. After all, while the acoustic instrument has a large hole in the middle, the body of the electric instrument is smooth and apparently solid. (Some electric guitars are solid core, some are hollow and some are a combination of both, but that is beside the point in this instance). At any rate, acoustic and electric are easy to tell apart on sight. And of course, the sound of the electric guitar and the manner in which it is produced is equally characteristic. Yet what are all the little parts and pieces that allow that this instrument to do what it does? There are quite a few, and one of the most essential is the pickup.

A pickup is a transducer, or a device that converts one type of energy into another. On an electric guitar, pickups are used to detect string vibrations and convert those vibrations electrical energy. This results in an electrical signal, which can then be electronically amplified. Most pickups for electric guitars are electromagnetic in design. They contain magnets that are tightly wrapped in a coil, or coils, of copper wire. Such pickups are usually located right underneath the guitar strings. The vibration of the strings causes a small voltage to be created in the coils surrounding the magnets; this signal voltage is later amplified.

Traditional electromagnetic pickups are either single-coil or double-coil. Single coil pickups are susceptible to noise induced from exterior electric fields. Fortunately, in the mid-1950s, the introduction of the humbucker put an end to this problem. This pickup has two magnets wrapped in copper wire. The magnets are of reversed polarity and the wire is wound in opposite directions, and the result is that they are all but unaffected by interfering electric fields.

Piezoelectric, or piezo, pickups represent another category of pickup. These employ piezoelectricity, which is the ability of some materials (such as crystals, ceramics and bone) to generate electric potential in response to applied mechanical stress. Piezos are popular in hybrid electro-acoustic guitars. A crystal is located under each string, usually in the saddle. When the string vibrates, the shape of the crystal is distorted, and the stresses associated with this change produce tiny voltages across the crystal that can be amplified and manipulated.

Some guitarists use hexaphonic pickups, which can be used in conjunction with piezo pickups. In a hexaphonic pickup setup, each guitar string has a separate piezo that obtains a separate output. These outputs, of which there are six, are then fed into the hexaphonic pickup. Such an arrangement allows the final signal to be easily modified. With modern on-board modeling technology, an electric guitar’s signal can be manipulated to attain a variety of different sounds, and a hexaphonic pickup makes this easier.

The type and model of pickup or pickups used can greatly affect the tone of the guitar. Typically, humbuckers are associated with a heavier sound, while single coil pickups are used by to create a brighter, twangier sound with greater dynamic range. And as mentioned, hexaphonic pickups are useful in enabling the guitarists to produce a variety of sounds.
