5 Great Budget-Friendly Floral Arrangement Ideas for Your Wedding with NYC Limo Rental

5 Great Budget-Friendly Floral Arrangement Ideas for Your Wedding with NYC Limo Rental

Be it an orchid or a rose, the beauty of flowers adds a great look to the wedding venue, but since the wedding day itself is an important day for the bride and her family, considering floral arrangements along with everything else going on can turn into a painstaking job. Flowers play a vital role in adding lively atmosphere plus a pleasant fragrance to your wedding venue, but the costs can shoot up crazily if you’re not careful. Here are a few important points that one should consider when planning the budget for floral arrangements. Use Flowers in their Natural Way Opt for flowers that can be presented in a bouquet and do not require any extra manual work on them. Most flowers that you see in expensive magazines and TV shows are altered by florists to look even more attractive. Although the flowers do not cost much, but these extra embellishments will push up the cost of floral decorations in your wedding ceremony by quite a bit. Avoid Placing Large Flower Vases on Each Table Do not put tall flower vases on the center of the table. This would block the view and guests to peek uncomfortably or look around in order to either look at the stage or talk to people sitting opposite them on the table. Rather, you can do a unique arrangement by putting one bud/flower on each folded napkin or adding petals in a shallow transparent glass bowl placed at the center of each table, which can help save money and allow you to remain within your budget. Use Seasonal Flowers Use seasonal flowers...
Planning a Wedding When You Hate Your In-Laws

Planning a Wedding When You Hate Your In-Laws

Most brides have a love/hate relationship with their in-laws. When it comes to the newest addition to their families, some are lucky. But the true colors of your in-laws are revealed during the wedding planning. There is nothing more potent than the wedding to bring out the best or the worst in the family members. But whether they are good or bad, they are in your life forever, and this is one of the reasons that make brides go all Bridezilla on the least suspecting participant of the wedding, i.e. the poor bridesmaid or their better halves. A wedding is what brings both the families together, but it is the first time when issues like, who gets to pay for what and who gets invited, arise. Although brides can enlist the help of their fiancés to navigate the tricky issues, tough issues like religious differences, money, family and taste still make an entrance into almost every conversation you have with your extended family prior to the wedding. As a bride, you have to take the weight of your guests’ and in-laws expectation on your pretty little shoulders, and that can cause stress to skyrocket. Some brides are blessed (or shall I say, cursed) with the non-caring in-laws who are just interested in showing up to the ceremony itself and have nothing to do with the planning bit. Either the idea of your marriage bores them (GASP!!), or they don’t want to meddle in the marriage due to cultural or religious differences. Sometimes, they have OD’d on their other children’s weddings, and this time they simply want to respect your...
In Love with No Where to Call Home

In Love with No Where to Call Home

This has been getting more attention as time continues and especially since the economy has been on the fritz. It’s hard to find a decent place to live with the salary we earn each year, as everything continues to go up in price. But don’t be discouraged, because we as humans are most adaptable, creative and unique. Don’t put off the wedding simply because you can’t move in together after you say your “I do’s.” People have been finding inexpensive and nifty-thrifty ways to create, not a house…But a home—sometimes even on wheels. . . .So tell the limo driver from Nationwide Chauffeured Services to take you to your home-sweet-home, where new beginnings are sure to unfold! blogs.georgefox.edu A few years ago people began to get noticed for their extravagant tiny homes; folks from all over were surfacing all upon the web with their accomplishments. Similar to small travel trailers, they often have a little nook-loft to sleep in, compost or RV toilet and shower. inyhousetalk.com But the trick to living small is thinking small. Minimize the unimportant things. Less really is more! Obviously there’s not an abundance of square footage, so you must be creative when thinking of what you really need. For example stainless steel cooking pots can also be used for mixing bowls. Your dinner table can be converting into having storage space underneath it. You can incorporate folding countertops—creating more space when needed. Personalize it to your newlywed needs! If you think you love birds are up to it, build yourselves your own starter home. I don’t expect you to get rid of your wedding...

Dreading the Toast

Dreading the Toast

Time to get up close and personal DC, lets dive deep! Lets ask the question–How far is too far? So you’ll never have to throw your hands up and say, “This has gone too far!” Welcome to a mini-series where we answer realistic questions to problematic situations that do occur at weddings–but hopefully not yours! Oh, the toast… Sometimes it goes well, people laugh or are moved and well others, you know, go on and on. So what do you do? What is there to do? We’ve all seen bridesmaids right; none of us want that to happen, the toast that turns into an argument where undoubtedly, someone always ends up making an ass out of themselves. evelynclarkweddings.com Solution Numero Uno! Hire a DJ, yup it’s that easy. Tell him to use his best judgement or you could even set up a signal. Say if you tug on your right ear that means, “turn it up!” As harsh as this sounds, trust me–a lot more damage could be done from your rambling mother-in-law or your uncle Dave that just had one too many drinks. The music will go up and your guests will be doing the twist in no time, or the dougie- whatever tickles your fancy. theorlandodj.com Solution Two! Start the slow clap early and start yelling, “Okay! Lets hear it for Uncle Dave! Thank you!” Your guests will appreciate it more than you know.   thredless.com Solution Three! Of course you could always be polite and let your guests fall asleep, get angry or become completely unenthused…Or you can step up and help them step down off...

Low Wedding Funds = No Fun

Whether you’re riding through DC in a limo, sitting at home or scrolling through on your phone, you’ve just found part two of the mini-series–How far is too far? How much is enough? “Oh, you’re going to love this…” She pulls out a bag of decorations she picked up today for the wedding, then another and another. They’re not to your liking, they might even be hideous; but hey, you like that she likes it. “Maybe we should keep an eye on the budget,” you remind her softly, because after all you just want to help, but—it backfires. She wants the wedding to be perfect and you want her to be happy. But to what end? How much is just too much? The stress is kickin’ in and your bank account is starting to drain… If you feel the spending is having negative effects on your relationship; if it’s causing financial insecurities, you need to know when to say—enough is enough. I’m not putting all the blame on women here and just like most women, I too, enjoy nice things. It doesn’t matter who you are, we all have our habits and dependencies. We often use them because we are lacking somewhere else in life, or we use our bad habits to cope with stress. Even though it’s a fantastic and exciting time in our life, getting married can be stressful too.      Let them know in a non-threatening way that—It’s time to talk. Express your love for your partner, be realistic, but not harsh or hurtful. Remind your significant other that this is just the beginning, not the end...
