A wedding is a beautiful occasion that deserves to be centered at a stunning venue. If you have chosen an outdoor wedding space, decorating is already halfway taken care of. It is often best to let the venue speak for itself and decorate lightly. Still, a few simple and elegant touches can go a long way towards creating the perfect background for that most special day.
Plenty of hands
Hopefully it is possible to have all hands on deck when it comes to decorating. It is difficult to decorate beforehand for the wedding because of changes in the weather. So when it comes time to decorate, make sure that you have a lot of helpers with tools and ladders handy. Often this has to happen the morning of the wedding, so these people will either have to be hired or not a part of the wedding party.
Showering the bride with gifts and love is an enjoyable tradition to maintain. A kitchen tea party is an occasion that she will love, treasure and remember forever. It is essential that the kitchen tea matches the bride’s tastes and style. While planning can be intimidating, if done right you can make it fun for all involved.
Hosting a kitchen tea can be stressful. Still, the bride is likely an important friend or family member and you want to make her wedding memorable and lovely. The first thing to decide is if you are going to host the party alone or allow bridesmaids and family to help. Having more people involved can be beneficial to make sure everything gets taken care of, but it also means relying on a lot of individuals to get things done. Even if you include many people in the plans, it is important that you stay in charge and have them run ideas through you to ensure a seamless event.
Your wedding day has to be perfect for you and your guests. If you have chosen the perfect outdoor venue, it is essential that you have a plan for rain or other bad weather. A backup option will ensure that the elements can never spoil your perfect day.
It is important that you are as happy, or close at least, with your backup bad weather option as your primary plan. With thought and planning, you can have an equally beautiful and special wedding in the rain as on the most perfect of days.
Essentials to a wet weather plan
One way to develop a wet weather wedding plan is to hire a separate indoor location that isn’t far from your outdoor venue. An alternative is a wedding marquee that is close by and easily accessible. Always make sure you take into account the effects of possible strong wind on your backup option. Also, you should have travel options for your bridal party so that they don’t show up to your wedding wet and unhappy.
If you’re hosting an event, of course you want it to be fantastic. Hosting an event can be important for your social life, as well as lots of fun. Often one of the most important factors for hosting a great party is the location. So how do you choose the perfect setting for your outdoor party?
Here are a few things to consider for finding the best outdoor party location:
How many guests will be attending?
The number of guests attending your event will help determine where you will have your party. Are you planning on inviting a few close friends or making the event one big bash? If your answer was a few close friends, a small and quaint location such as a garden or patio might be the best location. If you choose a beautiful garden, make sure that there is room to seat all of your guests.
Charity fundraisers can take many forms, but there are some key aspects that will run throughout all of them. From promotion to the provision of refreshments and shelter there is a lot to organize in the run up to a charity event. Herein we consider the most important aspects to fulfil before running your fundraiser.
Check the Regulations
Charity fundraisers are under the control of regulations to ensure that everything runs smoothly, safely and appropriately. Before attempting to run a fundraiser it is firstly important to familiarise yourself with the regulations that command your particular state area. Regulations about the use of funds to pay for the fundraiser and health and safety requirements can add complications if you fail to provide accordingly. Likewise, regulations about working with and around children can have a significant impact.
When throwing a party, there is nothing better than having a live band to entertain your guests. A live band will change the mood of your party, keep guests entertained and inspire some dancing and frivolity too. A band needs an appropriate place to set up and perform, however, so herein we consider how to set up an outdoor band space.
Creating a Stage
When you are preparing for a band in an outdoor space it is important that there is an even and safe place on which the band can perform. Performing on uneven grass can be hazardous and very few bands will be willing to place their expensive equipment on the lawn either. Opting for stage hire is the best option because this will help add to the atmosphere and will ensure safety too. Stage hire will often also come with dance floor hire, which will help to encourage people to get involved too.
Outdoor weddings are very romantic, beautiful and special, but it’s not as easy to plan them as it may seem. Saying your ‘I dos’ in the great outdoors comes with it’s own set of potential problems and pitfalls that need to be considered throughout the planning process. To make sure the sun shines on your big day, check out some of the following planning tips.
Choose Your Venue Early
The venue is one of the most important aspects of an outdoor wedding, and the one you choose will really set the stage for the big day. Planning and booking your venue early will ensure that you get the venue you want on the day that you want. Consider important things like season, number of guests, budget and other amenities when choosing your location.
Booking the venue is one of the first crucial steps in planning a wedding. After all, the setting where you say “I do” to the love of your life is important, not to mention the most expensive aspect of the entire event. Especially if you’re planning to have an outdoor wedding, choosing and booking the right venue is extremely important. To make sure you check all the right boxes, the following tips will help you secure the outdoor venue of your dreams.
Determine a Budget
While it may not be very romantic, the wedding budget is one of the first things that should be worked out before the planning process can get underway. When determining your budget, make sure you’re realistic about how much you can spend on your venue, and commit to sticking to the budget when seeking out the perfect locale. This will also help you shortlist potential venues and streamline the entire planning process.
All over the world, event planners are highly sought-after for their special skills and abilities. Event planners are responsible for organising various events for organisations like hotels, corporations, theme parks and non-profits, and benefit from having a fast-paced, fun and high-paying career. If you are tired of your monotonous 9-5, or you simply love a dynamic work environment that involves interacting with a lot of different people, then becoming an event planner may just be the path for you. The following are some tips for getting started.
What Type of Event Planner Will You Be?
While there is an endless variety of types of events you could plan, there are two basic types of event planners: generalists and specialists. Specialist planners develop a specific skill set in one field, such as weddings, corporate events or sporting events. Generalists, on the other hand, will plan any type of event. There are benefits and drawbacks to each, of course. For instance, generalist planners benefit from having a wider range of work, but specialists often become renowned for their unique services.
Given the nature of the great outdoors, it is no surprise that on any given day an outdoor event could either become a seamless accomplishment or a stressful ordeal. If you have an outdoor event coming up that you must plan for, and you want the day to go off without a hitch, the following are a few essential items you will need.
Having a “plan B” is a necessity for outdoor events. You will need a contingency shelter plan for any situation that might arise, from the sweltering sun to the pouring rain. Event marquees, portable tents, gazebos and awnings are great features to have available in case guests, DJs and food needs to be protected from the elements. Fancy event tents often have plenty of space for tables and chairs, dance floors, and buffet tables if need be.
