Planning a Wedding and How to Do it 

Every little girl dreams of her wedding day, of walking down the aisle to marry her prince charming in her perfect dress. When it come to actually planning the Big Day, however, many brides find themselves lost as they try to navigate everything that has to happen for a Big White Wedding. While fantisising about the man, the dress, and the hair is fun, actually organising everything, from the venue to the entertainment, is more than a little intimidating. 
 
Because planning a wedding can be an overwhelming experience, wedding planning companies, like 1 Stop Wedding Shop, have become more popular in recent years. It’s difficult to squeeze in organising a wedding with work and other commitments in today’s fast-paced world. Wedding planners work with the happy couple to make their wedding magical while removing the stress of having to organise it all during lunch-breaks. And then there’s the cost. Weddings can be phenomenally expensive, with venues charging several thousand pounds to host the event, and some photographers charging in excess of £2,000 for the day. Many people think that having a wedding planner will increase that cost, but the opposite is true. These companies want repeat business, so it’s sensible to offer them a discount to planners, and that discount is passed onto the client, making everyone happy. 
 
Working with the best local venues, wedding planners are able to negotiate the best prices for their clients for every wedding. From a luxury hotel to a stately home, your perfect location is almost certainly already known to a good planner, and they will be able to suggest the right venue for the theme of your wedding, as well as the number of guests. As for getting to the venue, your planner will work with you to find your ideal car or other mode of transport (horse-drawn carriage, anyone?) 
 
Wedding photographers can be expensive, and it’s difficult to know beforehand if you’re going to get someone that you trust to capture the celebration perfectly. The wonderful thing about having a wedding planner is that they work with photographers that they trust, and the price will be included in the wedding package as standard. 
 
When it comes to the wedding reception, the food and entertainment are the most important parts of it. Once the ceremony is over, the speeches spoken, and the new Mr. and Mrs. toasted many times, everyone is finally able to relax, eat, drink, and dance. The food and the entertainment are so important, and so it is important to get them right. Your wedding planner will work with you to discuss whether you want a band or a disco, a buffet or a sit down meal, and ensure they find the right person for the job. 
 
Knowing how much work is needed to put a wedding together, and of the cost involved, it is easy to see why wedding planning is a huge business, and, when you think about it, the happiest day of your lives should not be marred by all of the stress involved.

How to Look Beautiful on Your Wedding Day

How to Look Beautiful on Your Wedding Day

Everyone wants to look beautiful on their wedding day, don’t they? Well, believe it or not, it isn’t as hard to pull off as you would think. Many people go way overboard, thinking they need to spend thousands of dollars on makeup just to look their best. Well take it from me; looking your best is a lot cheaper than that. In fact, it doesn’t cost a thing! Here are a few tips on how to look beautiful on your wedding day.

Start Stretching

Doing daily stretches does wonders for your body. If you do them every day for at least twenty to thirty minutes, making sure to hit every muscle you have, you’ll notice a change in muscle tone. Stretching doesn’t make you look hunky or big, but it does improve flexibility helps to keep those fat lines away! Not only that, but stretching always increases your energy levels after a time. You’d think doing stretches as well as preparing for your wedding would tire you out, when in fact the stretching helps to relax your body and provides you with additional energy levels as you go. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start stretching!

Having a Reasonable Diet

Have you ever gone on a starvation diet and tried to eat next to nothing for several days? If so, please stop. Starving your body does not help you lose weight; what it really does is puts your body into what is known as starvation mode. When the body thinks you have no food because you aren’t eating, it starts to store what little you do eat as extra fat! If you really want to diet, don’t change the volume of food; change the type of food! If you are eating fried, oily foods all the time, simply switch out those foods for more nutritious foods. What are the best foods to eat? Just remember this; the closer the food is to what nature intended for it to be, the better the food is for you. If the food is a vegetable, don’t fry it; eat it raw or steam it if it’s too hard to be eaten raw. So long as the food you eat is good for you, there’s no need to starve yourself!

Don’t Go too Overboard With Your Look

If you’re used to a certain style of make-up, then don’t stray far from that. You can put a little more effort in than you would normally, of course, but don’t completely change your style. Trust me, you do not want to walk down the aisle and have everyone trying to figure out if it really is you or not! It’s better to still look yourself, while being just a bit shinier than you would normally. Really, in the end, what matters is that you’re taking care of yourself and that your man accepts you and thinks you’re the most gorgeous woman in the whole world. Because if that’s what your bae thinks, then it’s the truth!
