Your wedding day is one of the most unforgettable events in your life. It is a special day that is filled with happiness with the one you love and the people who are special to you there to celebrate. Your wedding may be modern, traditional, or a mixture of both, the vision that you have for your plan is entirely up to you and your significant other.
As you progress through your plans for the different parts of the wedding procession you will need to consider your wedding cars too. The cars set the tone for when the bridal party and groomsmen arrive as well as when the newlyweds leave after the reception in the getaway wedding car. The following can help you learn more about the traditions of the getaway wedding car and creative ways to decorate it.
There is no other experience quite like a road trip. It is able to gift you with a deep sense of freedom that is hard to acquire in any other circumstance. You can go where you like with no real destination or timeline to stick to. If you see a beautiful road, why not take it and see where it lands you. A road trip is all about saying bye-bye to the crazy hectic world of your normal existence and saying hello to a new outlook and way of being. It is essentially a journey of discovery, not just of the landscape but of yourself. You are only limited by yourself, your own expectations, and hang-ups. Everything else is there for the taking. So, if you have a road trip in Europe booked, you will want to know how best to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
More and more people are having staycations - holidaying at home in the UK - for obvious reasons. But if you have never done this before, or it has been a long time, or you are simply wondering what the staycation scene looks like today, then there is a lot you might want to know about. The truth is that it is pretty straightforward to have a staycation that is memorable and hugely enjoyable, but especially so if you follow a few basic rules of thumb.
In this post, we’ll take you through some of the best ways to ensure you have a memorable staycation. As long as you have thought about the following, that should be a lot easier and simpler to do.
As nice as your wedding ceremony is, it's not the part of your big day that most people look forward to the most. Everyone will love watching you tie the knot, but they'll be most looking forward to the reception after. This is where it's time for everyone to let their hair down and enjoy a party all afternoon long. Once the food has been cleared away, people can dance and enjoy all the fun they want.
Therefore, you need to make your wedding reception as memorable and exciting as possible. You've got to give people a reason to smile and include things that will keep all of your guests in high spirits. Nobody wants their wedding to be remembered as that terrible one where everyone tried to leave early!
With that in mind, here are three excellent things you could include at your wedding reception:
Located between the north Shropshire towns of Wem and Market Drayton, just a short hop from the Welsh border, is a corner of the English countryside that has been drawing visitors since the 18th Century.
Today, the name Hawkstone survives in three local attractions and landmarks - Hawkstone Hall, Hawkstone Park Follies, and the adjoining Hawkstone Park Golf Club. But back in the reign of Henry VIII, all of this was simply the manor of Hawkstone - a vast rural estate that included a ridge of rugged, wild sandstone bluffs
Many people still think the American Dream is THE dream, but a growing number of people are looking at another dream - one involving the great Land Down Under, aka Australia.
More people from different countries are moving and staying in Australia. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, there are over 7.6 million migrants living in the Land Down Under (as of June 30, 2020).
Your wedding is going to be quite literally the best moment of your life. If it’s not THE best, then it’s going to be ONE of the very best. You’ve waited a long time to tie the knot with the one that you love, and now you’re finally going to be able to do it. You’ve dreamed about this kind of thing for a while, and you’re going to bring it to fruition very soon.
It’s going to be a memorable time, but you’re going to want to ensure that you fully remember absolutely every aspect. It’s your unique moment in life, so there’s no need to treat it like any other day out. Here are a few ways you can make it so much more memorable than it already will be:
Take Lots Of Photos!
This goes without saying as wedding photos will be taken throughout the day, but it doesn’t just have to be the photographers who do it. Make sure you document as much of it as you can. This is something that a few older generations may not exactly be on board with straight away, but they’ll understand when they realize just how much it’ll need to be captured.
When you have a young family( or in my case... young nephews, the summer holidays can feel like both a blessing and a curse. Finally, you get to enjoy six uninterrupted weeks to make memories with your kids, but these seemingly endless days also pile on the pressure to keep entertaining, especially during this year when a luxury holiday is most definitely off the cards.
Luckily, there are plenty of parents in your position right now, and therefore loads of activity guides out there to help you to fill your days as best you can, any one of which could prove to be the best present you could hope for this summer. But even a good plan isn’t always enough to keep meltdowns at bay. For that, we’ve put together a quick-fire guide of go-to summer saviours to keep the sun shining, no matter what happens along the way.
Parents are notoriously tricky to buy for when it comes to finding the ideal gift. They either have everything they need already, or they tell you not to buy them anything at all. However, there are ways to find the perfect present for your mom and dad – something they will love and that they will cherish. Read on for some helpful ideas.
Something For The Memories
As we get older, we can sometimes forget that our parents are getting older too. Those precious memories of your childhood can be a gorgeous gift for them, showing them that you appreciate everything they did for you. You might choose to make a collage of photos and frame it, or perhaps a photo book that they can browse whenever they feel nostalgic. Leave some space in the back of the book for new memories; they’re so important. Or perhaps you’d rather get them a special ornament such as keepsake angels that they can have on their mantlepiece as a lovely reminder of you and your time together.
Something To Help
An excellent way to come up with something just right for your parents is to think about what it is that they need a little help with. Are they becoming unsteady on their feet but love to go for long rambling walks in the countryside? Then what about a walking stick to help them along? Or do they love to read, but their eyes aren’t what they used to be? Then you might want to consider getting them a beautiful reading lamp, or even an eReader which means you don’t need a light at all. Look around their home and observe them as they go about their day-to-day business – you’ll soon come up with some great ideas.
Something To Eat Or Drink
Food and drink is a wonderful gift, and for parents, it’s an excellent idea. You could make up a hamper of all their favorite things and present it decoratively. Ideas of what to include are chocolate, cakes, jams and chutneys, cheese, wine, beer, spirits (opting for their favorite tipple), and crackers, or an entire afternoon tea. If you’re short on time but still love the idea of a hamper, there are plenty of companies online who will make one for you – some are pre-made, and others are bespoke to your specifications.
Something To Look Forward To
For the parents who have everything, whose home is already full of things and who don’t need any help with anything, giving them something that they can look forward to such as upcoming concert tickets or a voucher they can use to book a special, memorable experience will make their day. Not only will they be able to enjoy the build-up to the event itself, but if you pick the right artist or attraction, they’ll have fun on the day too.
Something For The Yard
While it’s true that your parents’ home might be exactly as they want it so they genuinely don’t want or need anything else, but what about their backyard? Could that do with a few items to make it look even better than it already does? There are so many new gardening gadgets on the market that even the least green-fingered among us will be able to find some pleasure in the great outdoors. If all else fails, a comfortable deck chair or hammock and a stack of paperbacks might just do the trick.
