Who Can Buy From Wholesalers?

by Jerry

Entrepreneurs new to wholesaling often fear approaching their suppliers because they mistakenly believe that wholesalers will only trade with established, fairly large retailers. Happily, this is not the case. You don’t need to have a shop or even be in charge of an office full of staff to buy from a wholesaler like www.celdron.co.uk. They are as happy to sell to sole traders as they are to large corporations. By their very nature, almost all wholesalers will state they are for ‘trade only’, but if you plan to buy stock and sell it on, you are technically a trader – you don’t need to have a limited company behind you to be eligible. Wholesalers are mostly ‘trade only’ for the benefits accrued from their manufacturers, for tax purposes and, of course, to set them apart from high street stores.

Most wholesalers like www.celdron.co.ukare happy to sell goods to you without proof of being ‘in the trade’, but some will demand evidence that you don’t plan to use their products for your own personal use. Again, if you are a budding sole trader new to wholesaling, this is nothing to fear. Proof of trading can be easily provided in the form of a business card or a letterhead bearing your trading name. An invoice from another wholesaler or a bank statement from your business account will also be sufficient to kick off your trading relationship. As with many aspects of wholesaling, there is great variation as to what individual wholesalers will require of buyers. If your local wholesaler demands a large minimum order or other unhelpful conditions from you, it makes obvious sense to visit other wholesalers until you find one that best suits your needs. Some wholesalers don’t even insist that you take the whole ‘batch’ (the groupings of goods that wholesalers put together to sell on) so you are able to pick and choose exactly how much of a particular product you need.

So, if you are afraid of approaching your wholesaler, the message is don’t be. The difference between wholesalers and retailers is less than you may think. You may have to jump through a few more hoops for your supplier but, essentially, both want your business – the vital difference being that wholesalers will cost you vastly less money. So have a look around – the wholesaler that could save you a large chunk of your budget could be just around the corner. Trade cards are issued on behalf of wholesalers like www.celdron.co.ukto reward loyalty from businesses who buy their goods. Working much like standard retail store cards, trade cards also allow you access to a wide range of wholesalers and are a valuable sign that you are an established trader.

The reason that small firms can save money by buying wholesale goods isn’t because they ‘fell off the back of a lorry’ and ended up in a warehouse via the yellow Robin Reliant of a cigar-smoking market trader from Peckham. There are many, wholly legitimate, reasons why wholesale products are so cheap. Firstly, by simple economics, buying in bulk shaves a significant amount off the retail price. Also, as you are dealing with wholesalers keen to offload their goods, not the perfume counter at Harrods, these savings can be increased even further by a spot of persuasion (i.e. haggling – more of that later). The stock may be end-of-the-line products that have been replaced by an updated model or design but still perfectly useable. You will need to do a bit of research to find out what kind of condition these goods are in, but most wholesalers clearly label their stock and what you see is generally what you get. Many wholesalers also stock catalogue or chain store returns. When a customer returns goods to a catalogue company, for whatever reason, the product is automatically sent with other similar items to be sold off by wholesalers. The wholesaler then break these batches up and sell the goods off in smaller quantities at a massively reduced price. Small firms normally make the biggest savings when buying products from wholesalers in this way.

Helping Children Through Grief

by Jerry

Children grieve just as adults do. Any child old enough to form a relationship will experience some form of grief when a relationship is severed. Adults may not view a child behavior as grief as it is often demonstrated in behavioural patterns which we misunderstand and do not appear to us to be grief such as "moody," "cranky," or "withdrawn."

When a death occurs children need to be surrounded by feelings of warmth, acceptance and understanding. This may be a tall order to expect of the adults who are experiencing their own grief and upset. Caring adults can guide children through this time when the child is experiencing feelings for which they have no words and thus can not identify. In a very real way, this time can be a growth experience for the child, teaching about love and relationships. They can also be involved in the planning of flowers for a funeral with victoriafunerals.com.au.

The first task is to create an atmosphere in which the child's thoughts, fears and wishes are recognized. This means that they should be allowed to participate in any of the arrangements, ceremonies and gatherings which are comfortable for them. First, explain what will be happening and why it is happening at a level the child can understand. A child may not be able to speak at a grandparent's funeral but would benefit greatly from the opportunity to draw a picture to be placed in the casket or displayed at the service. Be aware that children will probably have short attention spans and may need to leave a service or gathering before the adults are ready. Many families provide a non-family attendant to care for the children in this event.

The key is to allow the participation, not to force it. Forced participation can be harmful. Children instinctively have a good sense of how involved they wish to be. They should be listened to carefully. Parents who openly talk about their grief, cry, and express frustration, send a message to their children that it is okay for them to do so. Because children cannot carry the burden of all your pain, try to maintain times for play and talk without conversation about the dead person. Balance, as best you can, the sharing of sad feelings, with the sharing of more pleasant activities and times shared together. This lets your surviving children know how much they are valued.

If your child has had an experience with death, (perhaps a pet, or a grandparent), it may be easier to explain the death. Here are some questions which many children wonder about and some suggested answers:

Is death like sleeping? Death is different from sleeping. When you go to sleep your body still works. You still breathe and your heart beats and you dream. When a person is dead, his or her body doesn't work anymore. Remember that children who are told that death is like sleeping may develop fears about falling asleep.

Why did they die? If the death was from an illness, explain that the person's body couldn't fight the sickness any more. It stopped working. Make sure your children know that if they get the flu or a cold, or if mom or dad get sick, their bodies can fight the illness and get better. Their bodies still work. Explain that people do not usually die when they get sick. Most people get better. If the death was from an accident, explain that the person was hurt so badly that his or her body stoppingworking. Explain that when most people get hurt they can get better and live a long, long time.

Will you die? Will I die? Children are looking for reassurance. Let your child know that most people live for a very long time. Children also need to know who will take care of them if a parent or guardian dies. Let them know who to go to for help if there is a family emergency.

Did I do or think something bad to cause the death? Maybe your child had a fight with the person who died. Maybe your child wished this person wasn't around to get so much attention from other family members. Maybe your child said, "I wish you'd go away from me," or even "I wish you were dead." Reassure your children that saying and wishing things do not cause a death to happen.

Wedding Stationery That You Need To Sort Early

by Jerry

The ceremony is booked, the reception is booked, the elegant canapes and sit down meal have been booked. You’ve picked the champagne and you’re bridesmaids are thrilled to have been asked to stand with you on your big day. If you want to have a hand in organising the day, then hiring a company like louiseperryweddings.com can really help. All the bigger things associated with the wedding of your dreams is sorted out but then there are the small things that are still waiting to be chosen. The next thing you as the bride needs to focus on, is the wedding invitations. Simple wedding invitations that only list the ceremony and reception times along with RSVP details are quite popular in comparison to the small notebook some couples send out detailing everything from the fifteen flower girls to the menu at the meal. Simple is always effective, sophisticated and bound to bring a tear to the mother of the bride.

Most of the time, engaged couples like to choose wedding invitations to match their wedding colours and then the design suits the couples’ style. Some wedding invitations have no frills and are simple. Not necessarily plain as such, but clean and minimalist in style. Other wedding invites are fluorescent, eye catching and adorned in lace; actual frills! What you want to reflect isn’t just yourselves as individuals, but the new wedded couple you’ll become. Your colours and text should be elegant but bold and really show off your day in the best way. The better and more bold the invitation, the more excited your guests will be for you. There’s something so much more graceful in a full and proper wedding invitation with a quirky and unique style versus a round robin email!

Alongside your invitations, your save the date is likely to match the colour and style of your invitation so that should be a consideration when it comes to design. The order of service can be included in with your invites or just handed out at the start of the ceremony on the day of the wedding. When you choose the font for your invites, you can choose this yourself or have the whole invitation fully designed by a company instead. While this does cost a little more, companies who create wedding invitations are now more reasonable due to the level of work they receive. The invitations that you have for your wedding day are sometimes the most important invitations you’ll ever compose. While it’s vital that they have all the information in them for the actual day, along with RSVP details, you will of course want elegance and grace. .

Pretty wedding invitations that stand out can set the tone for the biggest day of your life. Wedding invitations can be expensive but sometimes it’s not the biggest consideration when it comes to getting them designed. You can use companies to help you design your own or you can simply choose off the shelf designs.

Wedding Planning Jobs You’ll Love

by Jerry

There is a lot of grey area somewhere between a wedding coordinator who you only work with on the actual wedding day and a full-service wedding planner as provided by event planning companies like onestylishday.com. The things you have to do to find the perfect fit for your wedding is to decide which camp your wedding will likely fit into. You then have to go through the rigmarole of interviews to find the best person who offers the best packages and services in your area. First things first: does your wedding need a wedding planner or a wedding coordinator? In this article we differentiate the two and can help you decide which is better for your day.

Wedding Coordinators:

Generally speaking a wedding coordinator helps when you are planning everything for your wedding and then they ensure everything goes smoothly on the actual wedding day. They ensure all important details have been addressed, creating a day-of timeline and confirming logistics with all the planned vendors. They make sure that your suppliers have all the right information for the wedding day such as directions and parking information for the venue, venue rules and the timeline of the day.

If you are planning your wedding you want to ensure that suppliers and guests aren’t coming to you with questions that could stress you out on what is already a nerve wracking day. A wedding coordinator is going to be likely your right hand on the day. Even though a wedding coordinator won’t be involved in all the minute details of the day, it’s still a great idea to hire a wedding coordinator as soon as possible. Often they can make supplier recommendations and can offer some helpful advice as you go along.

Wedding Planners:

The wedding planner is generally the most involved person you can hire to help you to plan your wedding and some will actually plan the whole event for you. A wedding planner is like hiring your new best friend to figure out and discuss every detail of your wedding which is obviously amazing! They can help you with things like event budgeting, venue scouting, recommending and booking wedding vendors, negotiating vendor contracts, event design and even down to the nitty gritty of the floor plans! Overseeing everything on the day of the wedding is also part of the job description and this means you will have an excellent helping hand. There are companies that can send in a planner to book and organise accommodation for the wedding party and guests and you should hire a planner at the very start of your planning stage so you can use their wealth of knowledge to your advantage. They’re great for couples who are far too busy to handle the many man hours it takes to plan a wedding and for couples who need someone to guide them through the entirety of the wedding. Wedding planning can be pricey and prices tend to be based on region and some wedding planners charge a flat fee for their services.

If you aren’t a part of the wedding industry except for now that you are engaged, you may not know the difference between a wedding coordinator and a wedding planner and this can actually be quite confusing for new brides! Wedding coordination services are not only different from those offered by wedding planners but sometimes pretty different from those offered by other wedding coordinators as well. Your day can go off without a hitch no matter what you do so take time to make that choice, and congratulations!

How to Hire a Security Guard

by Jerry

Most people would think that the most difficult spots to fill in are those that fall higher in the corporate ladder. While it is not always easy to get somebody to fill in a top management spot, it is often difficult to fill in entry level positions. The employers always have an option to promote or develop new talent from the existing pool to fill in the demands at higher levels. What they cannot do though because it is illegal is to demote an employee to a lower level.

When people were asked a question as to what they think is the most difficult position to fill in London people would mention, CEOs, accountants, technicians, and Doctors. The truth is with the high quality of education in London; there is no shortage of these professionals anymore. No one among that sample of people asked answered security guards when they are in fact among the most challenging positions to fill in these days.

Hiring a security guard in a highly competitive job market in London is always a challenge, but here are some techniques to help you out with this task.

Post a job opening

People these days use the internet to look for almost everything even for a job opening. Plenty of job hunting websites offers to post your advertisement or job opportunity for free or with a minimal fee. These sites are also programmed with the capability to administer qualifying exams if you chose to have one.

Coordinate with Training Centers

If you just rely on your job advertisement, you will probably take a few months to a year before you can get someone to schedule an interview with. What most companies in London are doing is they coordinate with training centers such as www.centurionguards.co.uk to get the human resources pool needed for the job. Once the trainees complete their training and become available to the hiring market, they become a valuable and in demand commodity. This means if you are not fast enough to grab them then you have already missed the chance that will take months to present itself again. This is why it is best to partner with other business who will allow you to hire even when the potential employees have not gained their qualifications yet.

Invest in Continuing Education

The guidelines for getting people on board and getting them to do their jobs effectively changes from time to time. Newer and more efficient methods are being published every day. Once you are successful in hiring a security guard, you need to make sure that you keep them employed with you. To do that you need to invest in their continued development which in the long run will also benefit you. Keeping your guards up to date with the know-hows of their job will get them ready for any situation they were hired for. This will help you as an employer wanting to protect your assets and will also benefit your employees as someone seeking growth in a competitive industry.

How to choose the best bridal shop?

by Jerry

A bridal shop is a place where you can get fitted for a wedding dress, have it adjusted, and even shop for other wedding dress accessories as well. The stylists and sellers at a bridal shop may also help you pick out a wedding dress that will make you look like the perfect bride. So it is rather crucial that you visit a bridal store if you are going shopping for a wedding dress. And if you are wondering how you are able to choose the right bridal store, you have come to the right place. Be sure to follow these steps to the letter in order to find the best bridal shop in your area.

Check reviews of bridal shops.

It is always a great idea to do your research about different bridal shops around your area. You may use the internet to check reviews about the different bridal stores nearby. You definitely have to read reviews to get a better idea of which kinds of bridal stores have got the best selection of wedding dresses, and the best prices as well. You may also use reviews to narrow down your search for bridal stores that have only excellent service. Reading reviews can help you choose which ones to go to and which bridal stores to avoid.

Call them before going to their shop.

Giving the bridal store a call before you visit them is also a great idea. You could think about calling a bridal store as a sort of way that you can test the waters. Once, you have found a bridal shop that has got good reviews and an excellent reputation, you may give them a call. During this call, you can ask more about their specific services and more details about their prices as well. You may also take note of their customer service on the phone. You could actually get a better sense of how they treat their customers by the way that they talk to you on the phone.

Visit several shops and compare them.

Try to visit several bridal shops around your area as well. You could get a better feel of the different bridal services around you if you just go to several stores. You could also use this opportunity to compare the prices and services of different bridals stores. In the end, it may be more time spent in bridal shops, but it is definitely worth it. This is because the more bridal stores that you visit, the clearer the picture you will have to which bridal shop would be the best one for you.

Choosing the right bridal shop in your local area can be a difficult thing to do. For anyone in the Yorkshire area, you may visit theharrogateweddinglounge.com. This is a great bridal shop that carries some great styles of wedding dresses. And it could be a good idea to go there if you are looking for a bridal shop in your local area. Bring someone along with you there if you want to go wedding dress shopping, as you may actually end up making a great choice if you do.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Choosing Your Wedding Dress

by Jerry

If you’re feeling the pressure of choosing your perfect dreamy wedding dress, we’ve put together for you a guide of what to do and what not to do when choosing your dream dress. These tips will go a long way to keeping you calm and focused when choosing a dress off websites like frossweddingcollections.co.uk or from bridal shops around the country.

  1. Do wear your wedding underwear! If you’re able to, wear the bra and knickers and corset – if you plan to wear one – to your bridal fittings. Obviously this won’t be quite possible if you are browsing online but you can still imagine!
  2. Don’t try on too many dresses. We told you in part one to try on as many as you like and this still stands but if you try on dozens of dresses you’ll only end up confusing yourself and getting all flustered when there’s no need.
  3. dont forget that all wedding dress and accessory sales are usually final. No pressure right?! It’s a realistic reminder that you should stay serious in your wedding dress search and accessories. Most of those pretty fascinators are not returnable so spend your money on your accessories wisely. Websites online can offer you many choices on the accessories to choose from but try not to get bamboozled by beautiful crystal extras.
  4. Don’t freak out about wedding dress sizing. Bridal gowns tend to run two or three sizes larger than your regular size. Once you get your head round that, be realistic. Pay attention to how it looks and not the sizing on the label. Labels are very psychological and if you listen to that you can really upset yourself for no reason.
  5. Do ask lots of questions when you are trying your dresses on. You should ask the boutique owner and staff lots of different questions but also yourself. You want the dress you love to make you feel spectacular on your day but also it must be practical for the wedding you’re going to have. Do you feel confident? Do you feel comfortable but beautiful? Can you dance in your dress? Can you sit down? Are you self-conscious about any part of yourself in the dress? All these questions are so important for success on your wedding day. Although a gown may be elegant and breathtakingly beautiful, what good is it if you are trapped mummy-style all night?
  6. Don’t feel like you have to bring an ooh-ing and aah-ing audience. We’ve all seen the bridal shops stuffed full of aunties, cousins and the best friends’ sisters’ cousins but it’s not necessary. The only approval you need is yours and maybe your mothers! Don’t feel the pressure to take a gaggle of giggling and emotional women with you who will all likely have different tastes and offer difference advice to give you. You’ll only confuse yourself!

Getting Ready For Your Holiday

by Jerry

There is no shame in loving a good holiday whether that’s abroad or in one of the many holiday resorts in the UK. There are so many variations and choices when it comes to going away and you can choose to go somewhere hot or somewhere cold and ensuring you pack appropriately for the climate is essential. There’s no limit to holidays in the world that we live in now and holiday destinations are on the up.

The most exciting part – other than actually booking the holiday of course! – is packing. Buying new clothes and packing them into cases you know will either be flying thousands of miles away or even just driving those to the nearest UK based resort is fun and it is the bit of the holiday that takes the most planning. Clothes shopping and packing for holidays is always going to be difficult until you’ve decided where you’re going and for how long especially if you’re bringing children with you. If you’re into camping, you obviously won’t be buying up bikinis or heeled wedges but you will be looking at wellies and warm clothing. For those going skiing or taking a break in colder climates, clothes that are warm are an obvious choice but still pack a few tshirts.

Skiing and snowboarding are both hard work and gets you hot and bothered extremely quickly and if you’re wrapped in the thickest woollen jumpers then that can really make you sweat! If you’re looking for a great range of knitwear for a holiday somewhere snowy and frosty you got to look at the quality of the clothing you’re buying and make sure you choose something high quality. Yes, you may pay more for quality but in the long run it will last longer. The knitwear and trousers available on birtchnells.co.uk are warm, cotton and last longer than the average so paying that little bit more before you take a holiday is never going to be a bad thing.

Holidays don’t last forever so to spend more on the clothes for going away it’ll be an investment for later as you would still be using those clothes after a holiday. Most people plan holidays around events if it’s possible and most weddings are held in warm weather and if you’re lucky to be invited to a wedding that lasts a weekend in a country estate, then you’re not just dressing for the event but for the weather too. Having a look at birtchnells.co.uk you’ll be able to see a range of men’s casual but smart and appropriate shirts that are right for a summer get together in a classy setting.

Tips in Choosing Paper Bags for your Small Business

by Jerry

If your business is all about manufacturing products for your customer, you might want to consider giving away www.bigbrowncarrierbag.co.uk to your clients that simply reflects your business. However, in order to make sure that it would help you leave a good impression to your customers, here are some tips that you should always keep in mind:

Size of the paper bag

The first thing that you need to consider is the size of the paper bag that you wanted to incorporate into your business. For instance, a small paper bag is only intended for lightweight and tiny items such as jewelry, cards, and delicate items. A medium bag is ideal for storing books, gifts, and light garments. The large paper bag is now for heavy items such as clothing, bed sheets, blankets, and much more. Always keep in mind that not all paper bags are that strong to withstand such weight, therefore, it is highly advisable that you laminate it in order to make sure that it can be used again by your client or the handles will not suddenly tear off on their way home.

Colours

The color of your paper bag should match the theme of your business. If you are selling clothes, then you have a wide variety of colors to choose from. As much as possible, keep it neutral. Opt for earth colors and the most importantly, make sure that it matches your business accordingly.

Design

You might want to take advantage of the customization in incorporating the design and layout for your company. Opt for a simpler and natural design, make sure that it matches your business accordingly. you can browse through their gallery for images, or you can look for other printed paper bags for idea and inspiration of having your own customized printed paper bag, the design can make or break your giveaway items.

Durability

You might give away something that can last all the way home. Therefore, consider other features that will make the paper bag durable and reliable. Of course, if you have a little bit larger of a budget for your paper bags then you can opt for a higher quality of paper to be used for your paper bags only. These items are not specifically designed to be sturdy and reliable, but it will always leave a good impression to your clients if you provide a very creative yet usable paper bag.

Cost

Whether you are sticking within your budget range or not, it is equally important to consider the cost of the paper bag that you wanted to have. Always ask for a quote after sending them the design that you want to have on the paper bags and talking about the possible qualities of materials that they can use. If you are just starting out, make sure to always stick within the budget range that you have set in order to make sure that you don’t overpay. 

Why You Should Go Ahead And Hire A Car!

by Jerry

A lot of companies and events require a luxury car and knowing when a luxurious vehicle is appropriate… a luxury vehicle is ALWAYS appropriate! There are a lot of events in the world that you would need a car for and hiring a car whether it’s a standard vehicle or a luxury car, is a good idea! There are a lot of reasons to hire a car, and companies like www.ajprestigelondon.com hire out sports cars and luxury cars to people who wish to self-drive. There are a good few reasons you should hire a car and in this article, we go over those reasons.

Your wedding! You have likely seen a film where the newlyweds ride off into the sunset in a beautiful car. Sometimes these cars are vintage and other times they are sports cars like the ones for hire with www.ajprestigelondon.com. You can do this too! No matter what your wedding budget is, by renting a car to self-drive or even with a chauffeur, it’s still cheaper than buying one outright for one day. Most rental services like www.ajprestigelondon.com offer luxury cars that can really impress your guests on the big day. No High school reunion would be complete without a high roller. No one wants to go back after ten or twenty years to go and see their old high school friends. But rolling up in a fantastic car to impress those who influenced some of the most important years of your life is never a bad thing!

Impressing a first date is especially important. The best thing about a first date is the first impression you make. If you were to pick up a professionally cleaned sports car and swing by your dates house to pick them up, that would be an excellent impression! Of course, don’t go crazy and get the most expensive car on the menu as you may give a wrong impression about how much money you make and that could backfire badly later. Make sure you choose a car that reflects you rather than your wallet. Exciting road trips require exciting cars. Everyone loves a road trip so if you rent a car for yours, you can save wear and tear on your own car, avoid adding mileage to your personal odometer that would depreciate the value. You can save money by choosing a rental car that gets better mileage than your own. Smart choices of the car you rent can keep you comfortable. Heated seats anyone??

Your convenience could see a luxury car rather than the standard four wheel drive. Hiring a car is convenient, especially if you have been paying out for taxis to get around. If you are going on holiday, having a car ready to pick up at your destination can cut a lot of hassle for your holiday. Hiring a car is often far more convenient and cost-effective especially if you have family to cart around too! Lastly, being stylish. When you want to go out with friends, try renting a sports car to make the day special. Birthdays, anniversaries or simply a Valentine’s Day can be made luxurious and exciting with a rental car, especially one that is a Ferrari!

Hiring a car is so much more than just a back-up when your car is in the garage. The next time you have an event that is exciting in your life, ask yourself whether a car is for you.

How to Design Your Own Wedding Stationery

by Jerry

Websites like lilacandwhite.com can help you from bespoke design to printing to delivery of every aspect of your stationery. There’s still a lot to think about, what with the order of service, invitations, place cards, save the dates etc… but at least thinking about the wedding stationery as a whole with just one company can take the strain off the day. We’ve compiled some tips for you when it comes to organising, printing and designing your wedding invitations. There is a lot of organisation when it comes to your wedding day and all the pieces will eventually come together but you have to start somewhere and why not start with your wedding invitations. Setting the date for your wedding is the easy part, setting the tone is a whole other story. Your wedding day is a reflection of you both as a couple and how you want to project yourselves to your friends and family.

  1. Choosing your style. Whether you want to exude exquisite elegance or blast everyone away by your brilliantly boho chic outlook, your stationery should reflect your couple personality. If you’re likely to go with the flow and be easy breezy, boho chic is definitely up your street. Prefer engraved excellence? Something more formal is for you.
  2. Wise words. Wording your invitations can be tricky because not only do you need to ensure you give all the correct details for the ceremony and reception locations and times, you need to make sure that the receiver of the invitation knows how many guests the invite extends to. Dress code should definitely be crystal clear because the last thing you need is an old friend showing up in an identical dress to yours…the bride! If your wedding is elegant and formal than likelihood is you won’t want gothic death metal attire around on the day.
  3. Thank you very much! Sending thank you notes is a polite and important part of wedding stationery as a whole and should ideally be planned in advance with your invitations. You never know, you may be able to get a package deal so speaking to your designer or printer about this can be crucial. You may also find that ordering your thank you cards with the save the dates can help you remember who to write to. You can do this on the online shop at lilacandwhite.com.
  4. RSV Please. As important as all your stationery is, including a separate RSVP card to post back can be really vital. A lot of people forget to RSVP which isn’t always the most polite way of accepting a wedding invitation and if you want to avoid people randomly turning up on the day, ordering these as an insert for your invitations can be really helpful for those forgetful older relatives and scatter brained friends!

 

All of these tips are important for your day and lilacandwhite.com is the place to visit to be able to order all the above in one place. Delivery can be organised efficiently and also if you need a more bespoke design for your day, Lilac and White can help you arrange this and help choose the artwork you could be looking for.

Live The Moment

by Jerry

Many people think of a wedding video like an old home movie we have all seen and so don’t give wedding videography much thought. That’s so wrong! Imagine being able to capture your vows and your reception to watch back. It’s one thing watching a romantic, fairy tale wedding on the television but imagine watching your own again and again? When you hire a professional wedding videographer, you are hiring someone with many of the same skills as those required to produce a feature film.

A quality wedding video provides an incredible format to relive your wedding day (and then some) well into the future. Even more so than with your wedding photography, we urge you to not use an amateur to produce your wedding video. Only a professional has the quality equipment, the experienced hand and the editing ability to produce the succinct well edited tribute that you deserve. As part of your wedding planning sessions you should absolutely include a budget for a videographer and be warned, it’s likely to be a pricey gift to yourselves. However, your wedding day is your biggest day – aside from the birth of any children you may have together. So being able to get to each anniversary together and look back at those vows with a smile is just priceless in the long run. Plus, it’s far better to pay for good quality of video than skimp and have a shaky result!

A professional videographer will provide more than simply a real-time video of your wedding and reception. What they do is something magical. They can also include one or all of the following:

  • Our Story: A video interview of the bride and groom talking about how they met, special moments they’ve shared, when they knew he/she was ‘the one’, how the question was popped etc. Having this as a beginning to the wedding video can be something to look back on and smile about as the years go by and is such a pure way to see the love on the face of your other half.
  • Before We Met: A montage of photos of the bride and groom growing up
  • Pre Wedding Moments: Snippets shown of the bridal shower, wedding gown shopping, video at the bride and grooms’ home prior to the wedding, shots of the bride dressing and the groom greeting guests and waiting for the festivities to begin.

Once the video has been captured, long hours of editing begins. While quality professional video footage is needed to produce a great video, it’s artful editing and special effects where the video will truly blossoms. All of the footage will be viewed and edited so that is has a logical flow and is a viewable length: not too epic and not a quick clip show. They’ll add in appropriate music, voice over and titles and you will honestly be so amazed with the results.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Choosing A Wedding Dress

by Jerry

If you’re feeling the pressure of choosing your perfect dreamy wedding dress, we’ve put together for you a guide of what to do and what not to do when choosing your dream dress. These tips will go a long way to keeping you calm and focused when choosing a dress off websites like joyceyoungcollections.co.uk or from bridal shops around the country.

  1. Do wear your wedding underwear! If you’re able to, wear the bra and knickers and corset – if you plan to wear one – to your bridal fittings. Obviously this won’t be quite possible if you are browsing online with joyceyoungcollections.co.uk but you can still imagine!
  2. Don’t try on too many dresses. We told you in part one to try on as many as you like and this still stands but if you try on dozens of dresses you’ll only end up confusing yourself and getting all flustered when there’s no need.
  3. dont forget that all wedding dress and accessory sales are usually final. No pressure right?! It’s a realistic reminder that you should stay serious in your wedding dress search and accessories. Most of those pretty fascinators are not returnable so spend your money on your accessories wisely. Websites like joyceyoungcollections.co.uk can offer you many choices on the accessories to choose from but try not to get bamboozled by beautiful crystal extras.
  4. Don’t freak out about wedding dress sizing. Bridal gowns tend to run two or three sizes larger than your regular size. Once you get your head round that, be realistic. Pay attention to how it looks and not the sizing on the label. Labels are very psychological and if you listen to that you can really upset yourself for no reason.
  5. Do ask lots of questions when you are trying your dresses on. You should ask the boutique owner and staff lots of different questions but also yourself. You want the dress you love to make you feel spectacular on your day but also it must be practical for the wedding you’re going to have. Do you feel confident? Do you feel comfortable but beautiful? Can you dance in your dress? Can you sit down? Are you self-conscious about any part of yourself in the dress? All these questions are so important for success on your wedding day. Although a gown may be elegant and breathtakingly beautiful, what good is it if you are trapped mummy-style all night?
  6. Don’t feel like you have to bring an ooh-ing and aah-ing audience. We’ve all seen the bridal shops stuffed full of aunties, cousins and the best friends’ sisters’ cousins but it’s not necessary. The only approval you need is yours and maybe your mothers! Don’t feel the pressure to take a gaggle of giggling and emotional women with you who will all likely have different tastes and offer difference advice to give you. You’ll only confuse yourself!

by Jerry

Balinese – Balinese breeds may be one of the most famous among cats. These breeds are very smart and very sweet to people too. Although they can be very noisy a times, but this is how they usually communicate with their owner. They know when you feel negative and they are want to know that they are more than willing to keep you company. However, you should not be surprised when they suddenly lean on your shoulders as they normally do this to most owners. If you are planning to own one of these breeds, you might want to play catch and fetch with them. Wherever you throw the ball, they would love to return it to you.

American Curl – They usually have fanciful ears, which make them attractive to some people. These cats are best for those lonely people as they do not show any indifference towards their owners.

Unlike other cats, you cannot scare them with water. They even sometimes join their owners for a swim in the pool. Bengal is the closest relative of leopards and they look like leopards as well.

Bombay – This type of felines are very attached, not just to one person but, to all family members. They are one of the most sociable cats among others.

How To Get Out of Quicksand

by Jerry

As a child, quicksand was the bits of the carpet in between the furniture that we had to dodge while leaping from couch to couch. It was always something that seemed like a far bigger deal as a child than as an adult but quicksand is real and is a very real danger. It’s not something that is thought about much, but if you are a hiker and you’re in the wilderness alone, it’s something you should prepare yourself for coming across. While quicksand isn’t nearly as dangerous as the films show it, it is a real thing and just about any silt can temporarily become quicksand if it has enough water saturation.

There have been reports of quicksand in the dunes at Camber Sands in East Sussex so if you are a hiker and staying at a local bed and breakfast in Rye you should make sure you are aware of your surroundings before you find yourself one of those having a bit of a sinking feeling! If you step into quicksand by accident, and you are wearing anything on your back like a rucksack drop it immediately. Your body is much less dense than quicksand and you cannot fully sink unless you panic and struggle too much or you are weighed down. If you can, try and get out of your shoes because flat shoes make a suction as you try and pull them out of the quicksand.

If you do get a bit stuck, move horizontally. Take a quick couple of steps backward before the quicksand takes hold of you as it usually takes a minute or two to liquefy which means the best method to unstick yourself is not getting stuck in the first place! Try not to take massive steps because lifting your leg to stride can push the other further in. Don’t panic. As best you can, don’t panic when you get stuck. Frantic movements will only suck you down further and rapid movements make the ground turn from otherwise firm to quicksand. Quicksand can act unpredictably to your movements.

Relaxing and laying back if you get stuck in quicksand is actually the best way of getting out. Floating on your back while you extract your legs will enable you to ‘swim’ yourself to the edge of the quicksand pool. When you’re walking, make sure that you have a long stick with you so you can check the ground for ripples. If you see unnatural looking ripples in the texture of the ground, use the stick to check for stability before you walk on it. If you are walking with fellow hikers, bring rope with you if there’s a chance you may encounter quicksand as that way if one person falls in the other can stand safely on firm ground and pull the other out. Relax as much as you can and don’t fight the suction but just be gentle with your movements.

Now if you are familiar with the event that you are creating, and you are also already familiar in organizing events, you still need to research about the latest trends or tricks during events and most especially about your client if it happened that he or she is not your boss.

Also in making your decisions, along with that you should be able to have above average social skills because if worst comes to worst, the only thing left that you can do is to use your charm, trust me, I learned that from my manager in organizing events here and there. When I was still a newbie, I never thought that a manager would rely on his charm in getting things as done according to plan and again, if worst comes to worst.

Evaluate

Now you need to evaluate everything since organizing an event especially if it will not be a one-time thing for you.

How to Choose a Wedding Decor Rental Company

by Jerry

Hiring a reputable wedding décor rental company like the www.rentevent.co.uk is essential if you want to have the best décor for your wedding event. You may already have a list of three to four companies in town. However, you might not be sure on how to narrow the list and have only one remaining in the list. If that is the case, then asking questions should be worth a shot. Here are some of the important questions to ask when selecting a wedding décor rental company.

 

First of all, the couple looking for the said rental company should consider asking whether or not the company is licensed and insured. There are licenses and insurances that are important for any business. For example, there is the business permit. The best rental company will be okay to show proof of their license and insurance. Verify that these proof are valid too.

 

Know whether or not the said company has worked before in the venue you plan to conduct your wedding at. This is a very important question when it comes to hiring a wedding décor rental company. This is due to the fact that you need the company to be able to arrange the décor efficiently.

 

Before the rental, the company should be able to provide the real-life example of the item selection. Personally viewing the items you are renting is a must, after all. You should be able to choose the right items for your wedding décor.

 

The availability of the said rental company from the day you started inquiring for the latter's services up to the rental date should be considered. There should be a point of contact with the said company. You better get the company representative's phone number and name.

 

Ask more about the set up fees and delivery fees. You have to confirm with the representative that these are fees already included in the order. Otherwise, they might just be extras that you have to pay off later. You do not want to be caught off-guard with these extra costs.

 

If the wedding rental company you are getting your wedding décor from charges you for the delivery, then know whether it is a fixed fee or if it will vary according to some factors. Usually, if the charges vary, it will be due to the location of the wedding venue. You have to know beforehand how much the charges will be for your wedding venue.

 

Do not forget to ask about the deposit. It is common for wedding decoration rental companies such as www.rentevent.co.uk to require a deposit. This deposit will usually cover a part of the payment for the rental. Know more about the details on the deposit, especially on when it is due or when you need to make the final payment. Also, ask about what payment method is acceptable for the vendor.

 

Ask about the delivery of the rental items too. Proper expectations should be set, especially when it comes to the date of delivery of the items as well as whether or not it will be delivered to the venue. Make appropriate arrangements for it.
