The Wedding Planner - Andre Kunz and Leanne Nel share their wedding tips
Andre Kunz and Leanne Nel from the Breakfast Special on OFM are getting married this weekend. They have opted to get married on a cruise liner and this suits the bride, Leanne very well as she didn't want to stress about all the details of their big day and for the groom, Andre - it means that they can spend 4 days with all their friends and family. They share some of the advantages of getting married on a cruise liner and Leanne shares her dress design with us :) take a listen to their podcasts below.
 
 
One of the aspects to keep in mind is that when you get married at sea you need to get married legally on land before hand or afterwards - this can either be done during a church service or legal ceremony at Home Affairs. To book a cruise liner wedding visit MSC cruises

Mommy Matters - Donate your milk to a breastmilk bank: It saves lives!
You may find the thought a little strange but it is so important to donate breast milk. The more you donate the more your body will naturally make. Breast milk can be frozen for up to 6 months and saves the lives of premature babies every day. More than 1000 babies need breast milk every month and as a breastfeeding mommy you can make a difference. I spoke to Vanessa Booysen who explains why your breast milk is needed to save a life. Take a listen to her podcast below.

The New Music Showcase - Local flavour with Howie Combrink

You need to be into drummers to know that Howie Combrink has played for some great local bands such as New Academics, Mel-Funktion, Gang of Instrumentals, Chili and Lime, Soil 7t7 and One Day Remains. Early in 2012, Howie joined multi-platinum selling band, Watershed, as their new drummer and two years later he still plays in the band, as well as performing as part of Craig Hinds’ solo line-up. 

 

As the likes of Dave Grohl and Phil Collins have proven, some drummers can sing and write songs as well as play the drums. Thus the birth of Howie Combrink the soloist. Take a listen to his debut song "Don't be sayin goodbye" and vote whether you want this song on the OFM playlist. Let's support South African talent - I love this track!

 
 
The Wedding Planner - Celeb inspiration for your wedding dress <3
Choosing that perfect wedding dress can be difficult. Over the years there have been a few daring celeb brides who have set the trend with their wedding dresses. From Gwen Stefani donning a soft pink gown to Elizabeth Taylor opting for dull mustard. Not to forget Princess Diana who brought puffy shoulders into fashion and the little bit crazy Avril Lavigne strutting down the isle in a black gown. I hope these celeb wedding dresses will inspire you to choose something daring and perhaps even opt for a colour other than white. Take a look below.
 
Princess Diana and Prince Charles in July 1981.
 
 
The train of the dress was almost 8m long and the dress had 10 000 pearls hand stitched onto the detailed lace.
 
 
 In 1998 Cindy Crawford had heads turning during her barefoot wedding in a short slipdress. She married Rande Gerber and 16yrs later they are still happily married.
 
 
 
 
 
 In August 2009 Alyssa Milano stepped out in a stunning Vera Wang dress.
 
 
 
In 2011 she had her first child and named him Milo.
 
 
 
Musician Avril Lavigne and muso Chad Kroeger married in July last year and nothing was conventional about their 3 day wedding ceremony. I think a black wedding dress is a bit much!!
 
 
 
In 2012 Anne Hathaway chose a light pink Valentino gown for her wedding day.
 
 
 
If yellow is your thing, perhaps you can go back to 1964 when Elizabeth Taylor married her co-star from "Cleopatra" Richard Burton. Hhmmm...okay....
 
 
 
 
 
We know Gwen Stefani is a real fashionista but in 2002 she surprised everyone in her jaw dropping wedding gown. Stunning!
 
 
 
 
Back in 1997 Jada Pinkett married Will Smith and opted for a crushed velvet body hugging gown. Sleek and sexy. 
 
 
 
Jessica Biel broke the hearts of ladies the world over when she married Justin Timberlake in 2012. She too opted for a soft pink gown.
 
 
 
In 2011 Kate Moss opted for a vintage inspired lace dress. She looked like a fairy.
 
 
 
Another Kate who stole our hearts in 2011 and stirred our imaginations even to the extent that we started believing in real life happy endings; was Kate Middleton. She married Prince William in the most beautiful ceremony one could dream of. *sigh
 
 
 
Still in 2011 it seems that pink dresses kept making their appearance. For Reese Whiterspoon's 2nd wedding she chose this soft pale pink wedding gown. The term "blushing bride" sure comes to mind. 
 
 
 
Going back in time to 1998 - Sharon Stone chose a pink Vera Wang gown with a crown by the way.
 
 
 
Back in 1992 the happy presidential couple tied the knot. Michelle Obama was a classic bride and Barack couldn't stop looking at her.
 
 
 
Unheard of for 1997, Sarah-Jessica Parker opted to break tradition on her wedding day. She chose a black gown and could not have looked happier. 
 
 
 
And no wedding gown list will be complete without the lovely Victoria Beckham. According to various online sites her dress is responsible for the strapless wedding gown craze. In 1999 she married footballer David Beckham.
 
 
 
I hope these gowns have inspired you to be creative and true to yourself when picking your wedding gown.
