How to Get the Best From Wedding Catering Services

Most people do all they can to make their weddings come as close to their dream wedding. Nevertheless, more often than not fall short in the end. People often forget to organize the most essential things that are required, for example, an impeccable wedding catering is must for a memorable wedding!

Hire a professional catering company on your dream-wedding day

Many citizens prefer to self-cater and organize for different catering services from different places. While food ordered from one destination, somebody else hired to make wedding decorations. Perhaps, this arrangement may seem to give you enhanced flexibility and may come little cheaper. Nevertheless, you are not prepared for the kind of details such as coordinating between multiple caterers. Although you may tend to save monetarily, you get more burdens on the day of the wedding. In addition, there are chances for things to go wrong on your wedding day especially related to catering and food. Rather, use a good wedding catering service by a professional caterer instead of taking care of things yourself.

 

Avoid liquor at wedding dinner party

People generally tend to drink extra out of happiness and your wedding can become a mess of drunks. It is normal for liquor to run at a wedding dinner. It will help you check if you stick to red wine, champagne, and draft beer. It is better to shun serving hard drinks at weddings!


Range in Cuisines

You can have a number of cuisines and treat. In order to achieve this, take into account, food preferences of your guests. Take a universal list and consult with your wedding catering company.

Wedding Themes

With theme weddings, everything you do harmonized accordingly such as food, catering, decorations, seating arrangements etc. If you are in two minds related going ahead with it, you have a wedding theme that is close to the conventional setup.

Demand the best of services from your caterer

Always consider that food is barely as good as its ingredients. As a greeting signal, you will require to supply your guests with snacks. You can have a ‘tasting’ session in order to make sure that your guests served to top-quality snacks. Apparently, a number of caterers, in order to increase profit,  compromise on the quality ingredients.

Remember to check kinds of tableware your catering service is providing. Make sure it is clean, shining, and free of cracks and scratches. When you pay money for the services your caterer provide, you have the right to expect the best quality service in return.

Top 10 hints to tell your boyfriend that you want to get married

At one point in your relationship, you might feel you want to be with your boyfriend in a matrimonial bond and that you wish to have his name as you’re referred to as Mrs. “Your boyfriend’s name”. This is likely to happen if you are considerate and serious about your relationship, but in order to express your commitment and go a step further to bond yourself and your boyfriend into marriage, you might want to consider telling a few things first.

To express yourself in the best possible and show some signs that you want to wed your boyfriend, here are few things you might want to consider:

1. Texting Games:
These texting games are most fun but in this case, you might want to play 20 questions or Truth or Dare. This will give you a fair chance to ask if you want to marry him or he would like to marry you. The point is likely to induce a question in his mind about you being married to him. You can even dare him to pretend to be your husband.

2. Talk about marriage:
Not in a way, that you want to see yourself married to him but in a way as an expression and a part of the life`s chain of events. Discuss how married people tend to live and do things together. Talk about how they feel towards each other regarding all practical matters. Nevertheless, don’t bring up marriage too often.

3. Get his thoughts on a long-term relationship:
You should also consider the point how he tends to react towards marriage. This brings out not only his reflection and thoughts on the subject of the marriage but it also places a hint that you are considering marriage for the two of you.

4. Make jokes on people, which are married:
It doesn’t have to be demoralising or just rude but the joke should be able to crack the both of you. That is not to say you are putting yourself and him on a distance to getting married but it is suggested to give him a slight idea about marriage.

5. Try putting a ring on his ring finger:
This may seem too childish and kind of embarrassing to him, perhaps, but that’s just the point here. Do that because that will bring out your expression of how much you truly endear him and how you are considering being a part of his life and making him a part of your life.

6. Discuss married people:
This is to make him and yourself understand the importance and depth of the relationship. Comparing is not to undermine or boast yourself and your boyfriend but that is just to give a thought about how practical you are towards your relationship.

7. Express in a deep way:
Talk about all the expenses that are included in getting married in a way that you’re stating a consideration about getting married. The expenses could include:

  • Dinner
  • Guests
  • Avenue of the marriage
  • Music arrangement
  • Rings
  • Wedding gowns and tuxedos etc.

8. Tell him about how you feel:
Express yourself in a deeper and contemplating way. This would show your depth and commitment and how you feel for the two of you. This may be you trying to express figuratively the both of you with romantic and artistic things. This may seem a bit over the head, but it sure makes one feel thoughtful.

9. Invite him to a marriage:
Whether your best friend or your cousin is getting married, it may serve as a reminder to his senses back in his mind that you are wishing to get married to him.

10. Ask him:
You should consider this once you’re fully confident about yourself and your choice. Ask him, jokingly or just being serious but do it and see how he reacts.

As exciting as this may sound, you may not want to ask too much about marriage and bringing marriage in every part of the discussion. In these following points, you may want to tell him if it were possible, you’d marry him because you feel the world for him and he feels the same. This will certainly give him an idea that you really mean it when you want to marry him.

Pascale & Jean-Marc’s Firework Surprise Mauritius Wedding

How did you and your partner meet?

We met in 1998 when we were respectively 15 and 19 at a sporting event through a common friend. Even though we were attracted to each other, nothing happened at that time. 10 years later we got in touch through social media, and one morning while we were on our way to work we came across each other. Later during the day, Jean-Marc sent me a message and asked me out.

From there, things happened very quickly. A year later we were married and moved to Australia. Our beautiful daughter Emily was born 3 years ago and that’s when we decided to plan our religious wedding ceremony. Finally, on the 10th August 2016, we got married in the ever-so-beautiful Mauritius surrounded by our dearest family and friends.

How did your partner propose?

A few years ago we were on holidays and staying at a beautiful resort in Mauritius. Sitting by the pool, my partner randomly said that this would be a gorgeous place to get married.

Later, we went out for dinner and afterwards he suggested we walk on the beach to get back to our room. We got near the jetty and there stood 2 musicians waiting and as they saw us coming they started playing one of my favourite songs from The Turtles.

At the same time, he got down on one knee and asked if I would be willing to spend the rest of my life with him. I was surprised but delighted and said yes of course!

We decided to get married the following year but had to postponed for 2016 as we welcomed our daughter 10 months later.

How did you choose your wedding gown?

I wanted my wedding dress to be the most beautiful dress I’ll ever wear. After several trips to bridal shops in Melbourne and still no luck in finding what I really wanted for my wedding, I started looking online for a bridal gown designer to create a custom dress. I came across Leah Da Gloria’s designs and decided to book an appointment with her. A few weeks later I was flying to Sydney to meet Leah!

She showed me designs that she had made before and all of the delicate laces available. I remember leaving there and saying to myself, “She has to be the one creating my wedding gown.” Her designs were so modern and magical. From there, I took regular trips to Sydney for fittings and every single time I was left amazed at what she had done since our last meeting. She was so easy to work. She truly created my perfect dress.

What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?

I knew from the beginning that I wanted something very glamorous – a wedding filled with lace and peonies. Unfortunately, peonies are not available in Mauritius, but thankfully, the beautiful Lexia who did our wedding cake and decorated the reception venue made sure we had them there on the day. She personally ordered them from Holland! We wanted the style to be very classy and with a color palette of blush, ivory and gold.

What was your favorite moment from the day?

My favourite moment from the day would have to be our first dance! We both took dancing lessons for about 3 months and had someone choreograph our first dance – it was the tango version of Sway, sung by Michael Buble.

If you could do it all over again, what would you change?

Honestly… nothing. We had a ball planning our dream wedding and on the day itself, everything was just how we wanted it to be. We can look back and say that it was the perfect day.

Any tips that you can give to future brides?

Remember that it is your special day. Do the things that will make you happy and will give you beautiful memories to cherish.

Anything else?

Sadly, Jean-Marc’s dad passed away 6 weeks before the wedding, so we thought of cancelling the firework display we had initially planned. However, we decided to go on with it and it turned out to be the highlight of the party. Our guests were pleasantly surprised.

Sharlene and Craig’s Breathtaking Fairytale Venice Wedding

Craig and I first met studying together in 2004. At only 19 I fell completely in love with his kind heart. Our relationship progressed as we slowly set up our future together, and after 8 years he proposed. It was the most incredibly surreal moment I have ever felt. We were on a holiday traveling through Europe when one beautiful evening in Florence we stood on the Santa Trinita bridge, to the left a view of the Ponte Vecchio and to the right the sun setting over the Arno river.

I have always told Craig, sunset is my favorite part of the day as I love watching the colors of the sky change. It was then he dropped to one knee, told me he loved me and asked me if I want to return to Florence one day as husband and wife. With tears streaming down my face I said yes, never thinking almost exactly two years later we would return to our favorite city to become husband and wife.

How did you choose your wedding gown?

I’d always loved Steven Khalil’s designs; it was such an easy decision once I tried that beautiful gown on. The fit, the silk, and the lace couldn’t compare to anything else I’d seen! As with my husband, it was love at first sight!

What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?

Simple and elegant with a beautiful view, something classic that wouldn’t date. From the immaculate gardens where we held the ceremony, to the reception on the terrace under the Tuscan sun, we watched the city light up as we ate under the stars.

Our decorations were simple white flowers with touches of gold to reflect the history of this beautiful city, without detracting from the view.

What was your favorite moment from the day?

Craig and I were dancing as the sun was setting, and I remember saying to him after looking around “I cannot believe this is our wedding!” The scenery was so beautiful, and it was everything I ever dreamed of.

How did you choose your venue?

Upon first sight of Villa La Vedetta, we knew we had made the right decision, it was the most beautiful property we had ever laid eyes on. It beautifully fit our grand but elegant theme and the view of the city was breathtaking.

If you could do it all over again, what would you change?

Absolutely nothing! As cliché as that sounds, it was truly a perfect day from start to finish.

Any tips that you can give to future brides?

Don’t stress over the small things, the day will always turn out the way it is meant to, so enjoy every minute, it goes so fast!

Anything else you’d like to add?

There could not be a more beautiful day imagined, with 40 of our nearest and dearest traveling from Melbourne, Australia to share the most magical experience of our lives. It was simplicity meets grandeur combining our decoration with the villa and views. After 10 years Craig and I have shared together, with our love for family, friends, travel, and our engagement in Florence, this day encapsulated everything we ever wanted, needed or dreamed possible.

The original plan was to get married in our home town Melbourne, Australia with a guest list of 120 people. With the venue booked, and plans unfolding, my Grandmother sadly lost her battle to cancer 9 months prior to our wedding date. With heavy hearts, we continued with the preparations, never anticipating losing my Grandfather 3 months later.

With a giant void in my life, this great loss was enough for us to reassess what we truly believed our wedding should be. The decision was made to cut our losses and stay true to ourselves, to travel to a beautiful destination with our closest friends and family, and what place would be more meaningful than Florence.

On the day of my wedding, once I was dressed my mother handed me a ring my grandfather had given her, it was a pearl and topaz ring. This was my something old, borrowed and blue, along with a lace and pearl horseshoe she had made for me for my something new.

Our honeymoon was spent on the Amalfi Coast, Isle of Capri, South of France, and the Greek Islands. This entire experience will always be the most vivid memory of our lives.

Tanille & Jason’s Beautifully Rustic Beachside Wedding

Tanille & Jason wed on the 29th October 2016 at Torquay Beach, Victoria. The couple met on the beach when Tanille was just the sweet age of seventeen and happened to meet years later, by chance, during a night out in Melbourne. For them both, it only made sense to celebrate their everlasting love in the same setting as where they first crossed paths.

Tanille was dressed in a gorgeous lace number from Fifi & Edga Bridal in Geelong, which fit in perfectly with the rustic and bohemian theme she envisioned for her special day. From the flowers to the full table setting arrangements, Tanille took on the role of the bride and D.I.Y stylist for her own wedding celebration!

How did you and your partner meet?

Jason and I met at the beach when I was only 17, which is why it made perfect sense for us to celebrate our everlasting love in the same setting, and then we met again later in life when we unexpectedly crossed paths on a night out in Melbourne.

How did he propose?

The proposal was romantic and intimate – he proposed in the comfort of our home, traditionally getting down on one knee.

How did you choose your wedding gown?

A good friend of mine owns Fifi & Edga Bridal. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the lucky one. My wedding dress was the first one I tried on and I fell in love the moment I looked in the mirror! I love that the dress is two piece and lace and that it’s traditional but still showed off my figure. I had no idea what I was looking for when I walked into the store, the dress was the first one I laid my eyes on, the first I tried on and I purchased it right there and then.

What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?

The style I envisioned for my day was rustic and bohemian. We picked the beach for the wedding location as the beach is where we first met, we both love the beach. We went with rustic and boho as I think it complements the beach and it’s nice and natural, wanted to have a really romantic feel with all the candles, we chose whites roses and baby’s breath as we felt that matched the theme really nice. Our color palette was just nice natural colors.

What was your favorite moment from the day?

My favorite moment from my wedding day was the one where I saw my husband waiting for me at the end of the aisle.

Any DIY décor elements?

I did a lot myself, from my flowers to the full table setting.

If you could do it all over again, what would you change?

I would probably hire someone to set everything up. We did it ourselves and it was very busy and stressful, but worth it in the end as it looked amazing.

Any tips that you can give to future brides?

My advice for future brides is to try (key word, try) not to stress out as I promise you that everything works out in the end and all the little pieces will come together just perfectly.

Anything else you’d like to add?

I love my husband. My favorite thing about my partner is the way he makes me laugh, he has the best sense of humor and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him. He is the best person I have ever met, he makes me feel like I am complete. He is there for me no matter what. I fell in love with him because he is who he is and I couldn’t imagine my life without him. He’s amazing and I am so lucky to have him.

Why to Choose the Videographer Who Is Associated With the Venue

Importance of Choosing a Wedding Videographer Associated With the Venue

As a professional wedding video editor, you’re equipped with a set of skills you’ve honed through training and experience. You know how to pick the right shots, and how to create the style and mood that’s right for the video you’re creating through the use of skillful editing and transitions. But, in the final analysis, you’re limited by one important factor – the quality of the footage you have to work with.

No amount of color correction can fix footage that’s washed out by the sun shining into a poorly placed camera. Or footage that’s too dark because the videographer wasn’t prepared for the lighting conditions in interior shots. And what if you don’t have those essential “B-roll” shots that add depth, emotion, and detail to your production?

That’s where a good videographer enters the picture. A skilled videographer will get the shots you want – shots that are properly composed, properly lit, properly exposed, and with good sound. But even the best videographer will work best on their “home field.” That’s why when you choose a videographer to shoot a wedding, one of the most important considerations should be choosing a videographer who is familiar with, or associated with, the venue where the wedding is being held. This important member of your team can be the key element that results in highly satisfied clients and positive referrals.

 

The importance of knowing the venue

As you know, there’s a lot of planning that goes into a successful wedding shoot. A quality wedding video will feature footage from a variety of locations and will include elements such as backstage wedding preparations, interviews with members of the wedding party, the reception, and both main camera and B-roll shots of the ceremony itself.

Each of these locations may present its challenges in logistics. For example, are there power outlets available for lights, if necessary? How much space is available at different locations in the venue, and how much room will you have for cameras, tripods, lights, and more?

And there are other, more prosaic considerations as well. A videographer experienced with the wedding venue will know all the little details that make his job easier. Small details – like where to park, the best entrances to use, familiarity with the staff – they all add up to make the shoot go more smoothly.

 

Artistic considerations and the importance of on-site experience

An experienced videographer should always be thought of as a collaborator on your production, so never take their advice and input for granted. As the video producer, you’ve discussed the video you want to make with your clients, and you’ve given them your artistic guidance on how to best realize the tone and style of the end product you’ll be creating for them. Think of your videographer performing a similar function for you.

Consider the shots you want for the ceremony itself. You may want to utilize a multi-camera setup to capture midrange shots, close-ups, and B-roll shots of audience reactions. Working by yourself or with a videographer not experienced with the venue, you’ll need to spend considerable time investigating all the potential locations for your camera setups. A videographer experienced with the venue can take your ideas and filter them through the hard-won experience they have with the location. Based on the equipment they have available, they’ll be able to suggest camera locations that’ll yield the best possible framing and most effective shots.

In a similar way, the experience of your experienced wedding video editing can save you some potential pitfalls with lighting. Even if you’ve scouted out the location beforehand, you may not realize how a change in natural light throughout the day can throw a curve into what you may have thought was an ideal camera location. Likely, your experienced videographer has shot footage at many different times of day and in many different locations at the wedding venue, both inside and outside. Their experience can not only save you trouble but help you create exactly the effect you are looking for.

Your experienced wedding videographer will also have gear that is suited for the wedding venue. Certainly, there is are a variety of cameras and lighting systems that can work well in many different venues, but their experience in bringing just the right combo of equipment to capture the shots you want will yield the best results, without you having to make difficult decisions along the way.

 

Positive results in the cutting room

As we’ve discussed, the collaboration between you, the video editor, and the videographer is at the heart of realizing the artistic vision you’ve developed in concert with your clients. And when the wedding is done, and you move to your editing software a smooth and productive collaboration at the wedding venue will make your job easier.

Your collaboration with an experienced videographer has yielded shots that are properly balanced for the lighting at the wedding, so you’ll spend less time worrying about color correction and spend more time getting the edits you’ve planned just right.

Because your videographer was associated with the venue, you’ve undoubtedly also gotten all the shots you planned on, since you minimized unexpected obstacles with gear and the spaces you needed footage from. It’s a win for you – no worries about how to cover for missing shots since you’ve gotten all the shots you planned for.

Finally, you can move into your editing knowing that you’ve been able, through this collaboration, to get shots that are framed and composed to capture the unique essence of the venue where the wedding took place. Remember, your clients chose the venue for their wedding because it appealed to their sense of taste and style. The composition of your videos shots, by utilizing the attributes of the venue to the best effect will make your video resonate with your clients.

The smart choice

It may be tempting to cut corners when hiring a videographer or try to handle all the work yourself. But there is no substitute for experience, and the on-the-ground experience that a videographer associated with a wedding venue brings to your production is something that will be of great value to you, not only when shooting the video, but in your post-production work as well. Tap into the expert and make him part of your team. Your clients will thank you, and you’ll thank yourself for choosing wisely.

5 Creative Wedding Arrangements That Will Blow Your Mind

wedding-arrangements-3

It’s really not surprising that they are called centerpieces. Not only are these flower arrangements wonderful decorative touch at wedding reception tables, but they are also one of the most important focal points and when done right, they have the potential to improve the dynamic space of a wedding in great measure.

If you are thinking about doing flowers at your wedding on your own, it is very important that you sit back and think about the responsibility you are taking on yourself. Doing all the wedding flower arrangements by yourself is not an easy task and it is important to know what there is to it before you start.

It may seem like it’s a fairly easy job to put together a wedding centerpiece. However, you must consider the entire picture, which includes creating designs, buying supplies and vases, taking some time to practice, buying all the flowers right before the ceremony, making sure your plants survive, putting them together and transporting all of your centerpieces to the wedding.

Before taking this step makes sure that you are ready for it and now here are some mind-blowing arrangements you can create on your own. With these arrangements you will make your wedding videos amazing.

1.    Work with the Surrounding

wedding-arrangements-1

If you are having a wedding at an exotic destination far away it is a good idea to research whether there are any local flowers which are characteristic to that area and look to use them. Not only will it be easier for you to get the actual flowers to your wedding, but they will simply naturally “fit in” with the whole surrounding and create a nice nostalgic atmosphere. Just imagine dragging flowers with you on an airplane or ordering them from far away.

2.    Add Additional Elements

wedding-arrangements-2

Your centerpieces don’t have to consist only of flowers. You can also add other elements to decorate them even further and bring out the best out of the flowers you’ve chosen. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t use flowers at all, instead use smaller or fewer flowers, but surround them with things like cotton sprigs and together they will look unique and amazing.

3.    Get Two Cake Stands

Who says cake stands are for cakes only? Get an extra stand and lay out your flower arrangements on it. Nobody says that you must exclusively use vases for the wedding arrangements. Take a cake stand with multiple levels and match different flowers, with each level being unique, and this is how you can easily create something creative and memorable.

4.    Use Multiple Centerpieces

If you will have long tables at your wedding (and you probably will) you should consider creating multiple centerpieces which have different heights. They will simply pull the eyes of all the guests across the whole room. Use small, rectangular vases and pair them with high, round lemon-decorated chalets to create a trendy look.

5.    Candle Holders

If you have any iron candle holders that look beautiful you can make great use of them. Instead of putting candles in them you can put small flowers and create a beautiful visual effect that can be more cost effective than actually buying vases. You can also combine flowers and candles as well to create a unique decoration.

Try out some of these ideas and I guarantee that you will love them. Remember to practice a bit before the wedding and choose the magical combination that really speaks to you.

Weddings Photos are the Best Memorable Image of Human Life

wedding-photo-memories-1

Although some people think of a marriage as if it were a simple piece of paper, and a wedding as an over-the-top way of celebrating this piece of paper, those who give this joyous occasion a deeper meaning actually have a lot of important plans for their future. Making this step in your life means a positive change, and when you mark that process as such, you’re preparing yourself for a new kind of lifestyle.

Whether you decide to throw a small wedding surrounded by your close family members and only the dearest friends, or you plan on inviting everyone you know, you’ll want to remember that day for ages to come. Everyone loves wedding photos and there are very solid reason for that claim.

Celebration of a New Era

You know how there are people who cry whenever they see a bride and it’s not of any real significance to them whether they know her or not. Wedding celebrations enable two people to declare their love for each other to the world and this one day is the beginning of their new life together – if that’s not a reason for tears of joy I don’t really know what is.

That built up expectation before the big date is what makes us so exciting – and wedding photos tell that, which is why you’ll be able to remember the whole wedding story in detail just by looking at them. Besides, I’m sure that you’ll have at least one story the course of which went terribly wrong in spite of months and months of thorough planning – it will become funny after some time, believe me.

Everyone You Love on One Place

Life simply throws numerous responsibilities your way and, the older you are, the less time you’ll have for social events. Although this may sound a bit harsh and sad, you should focus on the fact that your wedding will gather everyone you love on one place. That thing alone is something to look forward to. Perhaps re-watching your wedding photos may make you nostalgic, but it will most definitely make you remember and relive the deep feelings and strong bonds you have with your dearest ones.

Looking Your Very Finest

Although this may seem superficial, getting married is one way to celebrate your youth which is why you’ll look your very finest on that big day. Having a memory like this captured is a wonderful way to remember the prime of your life and tell stories to your children and grandchildren once the time comes.

A Photographer Plays an Important Role

This isn’t something (most) people do twice, so you probably won’t have another opportunity to make this day count, which is why it’s imperative you hire an experienced professional who’s capable of providing you with a quality photo editing service. That way, you’ll have unique photos to remind you of your special day forever.

Memories are important because they help us remember who we once were and how far we’ve grown in time. The human mind isn’t capable of remembering everything it should, so having a photo-reminder of your life-changing events such as the wedding day can really help us take a vivid walk down memory lane.
