Creating Your Unique Wedding Day

Wedding 4In your twenties and thirties, weddings seem to come in waves. You will go months or a year without any weddings. Next thing you know, you are invited to three in a row. What if this time, your wedding is one of those three invitations? How will you make your wedding unique? Fortunately for you, there are many choices available.

Details are very important to you… and why shouldn’t they be? The problem is knowing where to start. The ceremony and reception locations should be at the very top of your list. Once chosen, you are simply building around that. Are you interested in a space that offers a desired ambience or a blank slate? Both types of locations provide you with the opportunity to add your own personal touch. Modern brides are certainly thinking outside the box. Today’s venues include distinctive choices such as art galleries, libraries, zoos and industrial buildings. Choosing a spot simply depends on your imagination… and manpower.

Weddings can often take on a life of their own. There can be too many opinions (and options). You are trying to create a memorable event that showcases your personality and ideals. (However, your guests should enjoy themselves too!) Try thinking outside of the box and finding a compromise. Furthermore, involve your significant other! It is no surprise that there is typically one person who controls the reigns. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t regularly check-in and have your loved one feel involved. Invite your partner to throw in some ideas for the following:

The Ceremony

The ‘best of both worlds’ is an option. Couples are often exchanging their I do’s in an intimate ceremony, which is then followed by a lavish reception. A traditional ceremony can certainly be personalized. Religious couples may wish to include their favorite religious officiant. What if one person is not as religious? For some vow exchanges, modern couples are having an additional officiant. Again, it is the best of both worlds! Not exceptionally religious? You may wish to consider asking a friend or mentor to become licensed for your special occasion.

Reception

You both have made the commitment. Now, it is time to celebrate! While it is your special day, why not offer your guests the VIP treatment too? It is easy to do with a few simple gestures.

If your ceremony and reception are not in the same place, you may wish to offer transportation. Do you have rooms blocked off at a hotel? Guests often expect transportation to the actual venue; this ensures that everyone gets ‘home’ safely. Be sure to put someone in charge of filming the limo/party bus antics. There are sure to be some laughs along the way! Overnight guests would also certainly appreciate a thoughtful gift bag with some ‘essentials’ including snacks, aspirin and some information on local attractions. A local leading wedding resource suggests including gift certificates. Don’t forget a handwritten note!

Thinking outside of the box? You will be surprised at what some couples offer their guests. Imagine having your attendees arrive by hayride… or a hot air balloon? Before booking something a bit adventurous, be open to the idea that some people may not be comfortable with your selection. If possible, allow them some time to decide on how they wish to arrive.

Personalize your event space with treasures. Pictures, treasured mementos and other keepsakes offer guests a peek into your marriage. If possible, try to include some family favorites and heirlooms. With these special tokens, your guests are being truly welcomed to your marriage. People love to feel like they are a part of something. And more importantly, people love… love.

When selecting a bridal party, it is difficult to create a ‘cut-off’. Everyone is so special to you. For those not in the direct bridal party, why not include them by requesting their assistance as an usher. It is a way to involve your loved ones with the simplest of tasks. Plus, your guests will enjoy not having to walk around aimlessly looking for their table. Want to make it extra special? Provide your ushers with a helpful guide and some fun facts about your guests. This creates an easy, free flowing dialogue between two people that may not know each other.

Chances are that some of your wedding’s attendees already have children. It is your decision to have children attend. However, you should keep this in mind when setting the time and location. Some modern couples offer hired help to assist in taking care of the kids so parents may dance the night away. Whether children are close by or at your wedding, consider providing some kid friendly activities, healthy snacks and a nap area.

As the night winds down, surprise guests with a parting snack. After a night out, what are some of your favorite go-to treats? Something sweet? Something savory? Taco trucks, warm chocolate chip cookies, ice cream… the options are truly endless. And you don’t have to pick just one! You may opt to have a food truck to cater to your guests’ taste buds or send them home with an individual treat.

Once your wedding has passed, it doesn’t mean the memories have to stop. Wedding photo albums can take some time to be developed. When it comes to public photo sharing, you have many choices so take advantage. Do you have a wedding website? Later on, you may use this upload images, videos and songs. Combining both professional and candid shots is a great way to showcase your wedding.

Playfulness In Marriage

Wedding MarriageMost couples find it easy to do things together but find playing together a tedious and a difficult task. This has made romance difficult for them because playfulness is the foundation of romance. You can never be romantic unless you are playful and you cannot be romantic and be too serious. Please try to loosen up a little.

Couples should spend time together, playing and relaxing. They should spend time to be in their own world enjoying the best of time.

Children do enjoy the best of time playing together. The best way my little boy can ‘punish’ me if I offend him is to say “Daddy, I will not play with you again”. Little children do appreciate the wonders of playing together; they love you when you are their playmate.

Playing should be part of our family life. It create a sense of friendship and brotherhood. It create closeness, intimacy and bonding. It also brings out the best in us and make us to enjoy the best time, thus profiting our life.

When you see two young people in love, they are fond of doing lots of things together such as playing, visiting good places, strolling together, observing nature, appreciating the beauty of the sky, watch the ocean, spending time at the beach; thereby enjoying their lives and moments. Immediately after the wedding, most couples fails to continue this act but concentrates on making a living and raising their children. That is the beginning of difficult family life and decline in their love life.

Couples that wants a strong family life should make playing together a business.

Explaining The Meaning Of Uninsured Losses

Wedding 3Car insurance is not merely an important part of protecting yourself financially on the road – its a legal necessity. However if youre trying to make a claim after being involved in an accident that wasnt your fault, you might come across something called uninsured losses. We take a look at exactly what that means for your cover

Uninsured losses can be described as potential financial losses, and they aren’t usually covered by a standard insurance policy. Uninsured losses generally include: injury to yourself or your passengers; loss of earnings; cost of alternative travel arrangements; or recovery of your policy excess from a third party. These are all very common costs incurred as a result of an accident, and you will understandably want to protect yourself against them.

According to the Department for Transport, around 3,500 people are killed and 40,000 are seriously injured on Britain’s roads each year. If youre involved in an accident, it could seriously affect your health or ability to work, and therefore have grave financial implications too. Standard insurance will always cover liabilities to third parties. However, if an accident isnt your fault, you will have to make a case to the other partys insurance provider in order to cover the damage incurred. If the other party does not take responsibility, this could potentially turn into a costly and lengthy legal procedure.

Some insurance providers may recommend that you take out optional additional cover, often from as little as 20, to boost your protection and cover uninsured losses. With Greenbee Legal Protection, for example, you would have up to 100,000 towards legal expenses to help recover these potential losses. Just make sure you contact your insurance provider immediately after an accident, as there may be time limits that apply.

The Government is currently investing in a road safety strategy, which is aiming for a 40% reduction in the number of people killed or seriously injured in road accidents by the end of 2010. We can all do our part to make Britains roads safer by driving carefully at all times. However, even if you are a safe and conscientious driver, you cannot always guarantee how other people may behave on the roads. By taking out comprehensive insurance you will give yourself great financial protection from accidents and as a result hopefully feel a little safer behind the wheel.
