Sometimes, the term event management bamboozles the majority of the individuals.

Without a fully-fledged plan and a proficient team to organize the task, it is gruesome even for the top event management company in Bangalore to make an event gargantuan success. An event can only be considered as successful when the client is completely satisfied and the event executes impeccably.

Various Tasks That an Event Management Company is required to Perform

The entire process of event management is painstaking and requires a ridiculous amount of focus and planning. The domain of the event management is divided into two principal categories: planning and organizing. In the planning section, an event manager plans the entire section and after planning, allocates budget for the various aspects.  When it comes to organizing an event, the site of the event is of paramount importance because that’s where all the organizing work takes place. An event manager plans and schedule the task as per the client’s priority.

Wedding Bouquet

Displaying In A Glass Display Cabinet

The ideal way to display your silk bouquet is in a glass display cabinet. This works
really well with a picture of your wedding behind the bouquet, so that your flowers
have a backdrop for other people to admire them in their full extent.

Displaying On A Shelf

Another place to display your bouquet is on a shelf. Try and use a high shelf, so that
the bouquet is out of the way – you don’t want people knocking it over! A couple of
small wedding photo’s either side of the bouquet will look great, and will really draw
the eye to the display.

Displaying On A Table

If you have a posy, then you can display it in a vase, on top of a table. Try and use a
table out of the way (A corner table, or dining table maybe), so that the posy doesn’t
get in the way of your everyday routine. If you place blue and white stones at the
bottom of the vase, it will give the impression that the flowers are sitting in water. It
looks spectacular, and is definitely worth a try.

Whichever way you to decide to display your bouquet, there are 4 simple rules you
should pay attention to:

1) Put the silk bouquet in a place where it will draw attention. A well displayed
bouquet makes a great talking point, and will remind you of the happy day every
time you see it.

2) Make sure the bouquet is out of the way. You don’t want to be knocking it over,
or pushing it aside all the time. Perhaps you’ll be careful, but what about your
children, or your pets?

3) KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid. Many people get carried away when setting up their
bouquet display, and add too many photographs and other wedding items. This
makes the display look cluttered, and the bouquet stops being a focal point. You
want the display to be VERY simple, so that eye is drawn to the the bouquet.

4) Be sure to avoid direct sunlight hitting the bouquet. Direct sunlight is very bad
for silk bouquets, and will make them fade and lose their color. Ideally you want
natural room light. If you have your bouquet anywhere near a window, make sure
the sunlight doesn’t directly hit it!

Pick Your Wedding Shoes

Don’t ever think that people will not look at bride’s shoes. Currently it’s no longer do a bride’s shoes remain hidden under traditional hopped skirts, tulle and meters of train. The simplicity of wedding dresses today has prompted renewed interest in bridal footwear. People will of course see what shoes the bride is wearing.

If you’re the bride-to-be and wanting to buy shoes, be wise! Don’t just consider the look. Just because they are the most gorgeous wedding shoes you’ve ever seen, maybe even the most expensive – doesn’t make them the most suitable shoes to wear for up to twelve hours on your special day. Find wedding shoes that comfortable on your foot.

The important thing to find comfortable wedding shoes is to consider it heel! The higher the heel, the more stress you put on your lower back and also making your back muscles contract. Sure you don’t want to pain yourself on your first day honeymoon!

There is several of wedding shoes styles. Some wedding shoes styles are made from leather, which is combined with cotton for strength and silk satin for richness. There is also wedding shoes that are made from other material, which is also beautiful.

If you want to check what style is match with your wedding dress, just click the website which purchases wedding shoes. You can order easily and without waiting very long, your wedding shoes will be on your hand. Try it on and see how it is on your foot. If not comfortable enough, you can return and change it with the one that is more comfortable.

It’s recommend that once you’ve found your dress, you start looking for the perfect shoes immediately for your wedding. You should have your shoes by the time your gown is delivered and ready to be altered. You will need to bring your shoes to every fitting so that the hemline remains the same.

At least two weeks before the wedding start wearing your shoes around the house. An hour at first, then slowly increase the time at three day intervals leading up to the day. That is to break them in, so you get familiar with your shoes. You do want to have gorgeous wedding shoes with beautiful attire feeling uneasy, don’t you!

Plan a Cheap Wedding

Wedding Gowns

Do you really need a hand-made wedding dress with beads and diamantes? This is where the big cost is and there are several options in cutting the cost. Why not opt for a second-hand wedding dress? It’s probably only been worn once anyway and you can get a once expensive dress for half the price. Consider buying an evening gown/cocktail dress from a department store or look into renting your wedding dress for the day.

The Reception

This is where the cost of a wedding can get out of hand. The wedding reception is normally the biggest expense, but one of the easiest to cut down on costs. Statistics show that an average of 189 guests attend a wedding, this is a lot. Try and keep your guest list to a minimum, do you really need to invite family members who you have never seen for years? Instead of a three-course meal why not opt for a hot and cold buffet (even cater for yourself)? Instead of holding the reception in an expensive hotel suite or wedding reception, why not consider having it at someone’s home or a club, or even book a restaurant. Keep an open bar to a minimal and only serve beer, wine and soft drinks.

Photography

The obvious choice is to shop around for the best rates, but consider hiring a photographer for the ceremony only and ask a family member or friend to take snap photos of the reception. Or you could go one step further and ask them to take the photographs for the whole day and not bother with the expense of a photographer at all.

Invitations / Stationery

If you’re on a budget and looking for cheaper wedding stationery items, then you might like to consider print-at-home stationery. There are many online stationer’s that will offer this service free of charge. You pay for the paper and envelopes, then use their software to print directly from your own PC. With sophisticated customization tools you’ll be able to enter your own text and preview it before you print so as not to make any costly mistakes. Alternatively, you can buy software and do-it-yourself from your PC.

Miscellaneous

Flowers can be another great expense, but also an unnecessary one. Why not buy wholesale flowers, or pick flowers from your garden (or a friends or relatives). Buy plain gold or white gold wedding bands as these are the cheapest. Get a friend to make your wedding cake for you and opt for a smaller tier cake and it doesn’t have to be a fruit cake – try a sponge, chocolate or carrot cake! Make your favors and center-peices yourself. Accessories for these can be found at little outlet stores or online. Lastly, instead of a limousine why not rent a car or borrow a luxury car from a friend or relative?

White Gold Wedding Rings

Some people never grow tired of the look of pure gold jewelry. Gold, being our most precious metal, is often a first choice among couples looking for that perfect gold wedding ring.

While yellow gold remains very popular with the wedding crowd. Many people prefer the brilliant hue of a white gold wedding ring.

White gold will look beautiful on you whether you’re a man or a woman. You can find online a great selection of white gold diamond wedding rings and white gold wedding ring sets. Also, if you’re looking for something a little fancier that can also become a piece of wonderful keepsake jewelry, white gold makes a very elegant engraved wedding ring that can be passed on to future generations.

The one thing you need to be aware of when buying a white gold wedding ring is that it will need periodic maintenance in order to keep it’s luster.

To obtain it’s much desired glittering white color, white gold is coated with another alloy called Rhodium (the natural color of white gold is really light gray). Rhodium will wear down after a while, so to maintain your ring’s luster, you’ll need to visit your local jeweler about every 12-18 months and have it re-plated with a new coating of Rhodium. The cost for this should be very reasonable.

Whether you’re looking for a plain gold wedding band, or a wedding ring with sparkling diamonds, white gold is an excellent choice for those looking for something a little extra special.

Wedding Insurance

Even the most carefully planned weddings are not immune to disaster. Events can happen unexpectedly that it is impossible to plan for. For example, what if there was a fire that destroyed the wedding venue just before the big day? Or what if the marquee company went bust? Most couples would by then have paid a large sum of non-refundable deposits to hire the venue and the caterers etc. Without insurance this money has effectively gone up in smoke, and the couple would have to find a new venue for the reception at very short notice, or face the option of having to postpone their wedding day altogether.

In this situation, a good wedding insurance policy would cover the costs of the deposits and provide help towards the extra costs of rearranging the wedding. Of course it always pays to be diligent when buying any sort of insurance premium. It is advisable to compare the level of cover offered by various companies, as this can vary considerably between insurance providers.

With the average cost of a wedding dress now approximately £1000, plus the high costs of the attire for the groom and the rest of the bridal party, it may well be worth considering insurance in case any of the outfits get ruined. There are so many different things to organize when arranging a wedding, which means relying on lots of other people to make sure everything goes smoothly. Insurance can cover things such as the cost of a wedding car, wedding cake and the rings. Wedding presents can also be covered just in case they are stolen. Cover typically includes flowers, videos and photographs too.

Given the huge expense of the average wedding day, couples would be wise to consider the option of insurance right at the beginning of the preparations. The majority of weddings take several months of rigorous planning, during which time all kinds of unexpected events could occur to throw a spanner in the works. So is it worth it? Well consider this. For all the planning, the preparation, and the organizing, as little as £50 can buy you peace of mind. It’s a small price to pay really, isn’t it?

Wedding Reception Entertainment

When it is time to look for wedding reception entertainment, you need to consider many aspects. Cost may seem to be your highest priority at first, but as you weed through the list of considerations, you will need to find someone you trust to keep your special day flowing smoothly. Tacky rhetoric, shoddy equipment, or lack of music to please your guests should not ruin your picture-perfect day.

You will want a DJ with a high quality, and guaranteed, sound system. The entertainment must provide a wide range of music to offer all your guests music they are requesting. You want a DJ who will listen to your wishes and make suggestions, not mandates, as to how the reception should flow. You want experienced wedding entertainment – people who know the pitfalls from years of past experience – and can handle little ’emergencies’ as they arise with grace and professionalism.

Your DJ/MC will weave all the activities of your reception into a tapestry of memories to be remembered for a lifetime. From the moment you arrive at your reception, your DJ will orchestrate the perfect dance between music, generations, customs, and cultures. Your wedding entertainment is more that just ‘entertainment’; it is the life-blood of your reception.

DJ Acts As A Wedding Event Planner

Let’s look at the basic facts. The disc jockey relies on the banquet facility to provide the meals and drinks in a timely fashion for the guests. The banquet facility will help coordinate timing to line up with meal service. Some facilities even go as far as supporting the disc jockey during introductions by directing the wedding party and collecting their flowers. For the most part, once the meal is done – you won’t see the staff until it’s time to clean up. They will walk away from your event and leave everything in the hands of the entertainment.

Without entertainment, people will just leave after the meal. It’s up to the disc jockey to entertain your guests for the next three hours. If you took them to a 2-hour movie, you’d pay $9.75 per person to entertain them. You probably just paid $75 per person to feed them (before the 18{2e70b9c89da0b071fca6ac355bf5aea5ff95b626e761b02c830feab33c994805} gratuity). The $500 ice sculpture, $300 printed napkins and the $3 per person champagne toast pretty much go unnoticed and unappreciated. It is so easy to get caught up in the wedding planning that you just think that you “have” to have it. Sometimes you have to step back and look at the big picture. A wedding reception is an “entertainment” function. Your entertainment choice will clearly make or break your event.

If a party is a flop – the DJ is blamed. Never do you hear the guests complain that the meal was dragged out over 2 hours and that it killed the party. People don’t realize that by having a photographer pull a couple out of the festivities for 45 minutes can drain the energy from a wedding reception just as quickly as having the banquet manager turn the lights on full or strip clear the tables to push guests towards leaving.

With that said – your professional disc jockey does more than play music and make a few announcements. They are your event coordinator for the day. They will guide you every step of the way – from telling you where to stand while waiting for the start of parental dances to guiding you to return to the room when you’ve been out too long. They will make your party come alive with excitement while still maintaining a professional demeanor and not rely on cheesy antics and props. Your disc jockey will advise you when it is time to get the party started after dinner or if the meal is slow, they might suggest that you do some dancing between courses to mask the fact that the banquet staff is behind.

Your disc jockey will play the music you want and avoid the songs that you have placed on your no-play list. They will make sure things go as planned. If your uncle comes up and says he wants to sing you a song in the middle of your reception – they’ll stop him until they’ve cleared it with you first. There will be no surprises with a professional disc jockey.

The fact that your disc jockey mimics so many of the duties of a professional wedding planner during the wedding reception are not by accident. It is what they do. Some disc jockeys have even gone as far as to now provide pre-wedding coordination and planning duties (including menu review, vendor contract negotiations, vendor approval, invitation wording, wine pairing and so much more) through an in-house dedicated wedding planner. This way your wedding planner and your entertainment are working together in harmony with your plans.

Wedding Decoration Budget

1. Decide on the essential items that you must have first and then worry about the extras.

2. Hand make the centerpieces yourself using items priced toward your budget.

3. Using artificial flowers is cheaper than fresh flowers unless you pick them yourself from a field.

4. Skip the extra wedding favors and focus more attention on decoration detail.

5. Never go over your budget because you set it up for a reason

6. For smaller items like candles, candle holders, small laces etc. visit your nearby dollar store.

7. Never underestimate the elegance of basic décor. Sometimes minimal is best.

8. Some very versatile items that can make a beautiful decorations include: clay pots, plastic bowls/vases, faux flowers, pearls, balloons, pillar candles, rhinestones, and empty wine bottles.

9. Tissue paper roses and flowers give off a beautiful look to any decorating style and they are quick and easy to make.

10. A word to wise is that your decorations should not even amount to half of the money that is spent on the reception.
