How To Not Lose The “cool” As A Bride

Weddings can be hectic events, especially for the bride who pretty much, more or less, organises the whole event – unless there is a wedding planner involved, but even then the bride needs to oversee all the minor details. Amid all the chaos it is highly likely that the bride will lose her “cool” at some point and staying cool and calm is crucial for the smooth functioning for the whole event. The following tips are just some of the ways that brides can maintain their “cool”.

Be prepared well in-advance

It is always best to begin the planning as soon as possible and stay well ahead in organising. Firstly, it’s best to decide on the major details such as: wedding location, wedding reception themes, people taking part in the wedding etc. After decisions have been made on these details, the minor details can be looked into such as: bridal dress, groom’s outfit, maid of honour and bridesmaids’ dresses, food to be served at the perfect reception etc.

Make a schedule and stick to it!

Making a schedule is critical to meet the date set for the wedding. Put down all the dates for every little detail from the bridal gown fitting to the cake tasting, this way you will know what happens exactly on which date. Sticking to these dates is very important; these dates should not be moved around to accommodate other things. When one thing is postponed it will have an effect on another appointment and so on creating a ripple effect which ends in chaos and ultimately the bride losing her cool.

Understand that you cannot control everything and everyone

As the bride you tend to think everyone will somehow obey you, sadly that is not the case. Not everyone will understand your needs or work to accommodate all your needs, for example: the florist may not have made the arrangements exactly to your specifications or the caterer is delayed, and these kinds of things tend to really stress the bride and make her most definitely lose her cool. To avoid having to deal with these minor issues, one thing to do would be to get a wedding ceremony hire involved. Essentially, they will take care of the major part of the wedding that involves the small yet significant details.

Enjoy the happiest day of your life

Your wedding is the day that a new chapter of your life begins. With all the stress of the event, brides forget this. Take a deep breath and look around at the festivities that celebrate the start of your new life. Put aside all the chaos and stress that led up to the day and enjoy all your hard work with your husband. You are the bride and this is you day!

Ideas To Give Your Dad A Memorable Day

Personally, I think fathers play a major role in molding the future of a child – may be even more than a mother. I know most may not agree with me but this will always be open for debate.

However, I know you will all agree with me when I say that we love our fathers; albeit in our own way. So, if you are considering saying thank you to your dad or celebrating his love, here are a few ideas for doing so.

Organize a party

It is common knowledge that all men, whether they are fathers or not, love a good celebration. So, it is guaranteed that your father will appreciate your efforts.

Just like for any other event, you need to plan everything including the date, venue, guests, food and beverages and entertainment to ensure that the event flows smoothly.

Select a date which would be convenient for everyone you intend to invite. Obviously, a working day or the Sunday night may not be the best choice. You may decide to have a night function if you know that the people who are important to your father (do not get too carried away, the party is for your father not you!) do not have issues traveling at night.

Be sure to select a place which can cater for any classy function centre. You may consider 50th birthday venues with a rustic look and feel which may remind your father of the good old days. Choose a menu which is known to be liked by your father and you may consider having a live band instead of a DJ.

Have a dinner out

If your dad prefers to enjoy quality time with his family more than entertaining guests, then he may like the idea of a dinner at a popular restaurant.
Known 21st function venues Melbourne may serve the purpose if you do not mind a bit of extra noise. Otherwise, decide on a restaurant which offers secluded space.Once again, the menus are important. Therefore, do not forget to have a look at them beforehand if you do not visit that place frequently.

Go to the movies

If it is just the two of you, the movies will be the best option, especially if neither of you are talkative. A latest action movie may rouse your father’s old memories while creating new ones for both of you. The best part is that you will still have time to catch up on each other’s lives during the drive to and from the movie.

Whatever you may decide to do, in the end all that matters is that you made an effort to show your father how much you love him and how much you appreciate all that he has done for you over the years even though your actions may not always deliver the desired message.
