Choosing the Right Event Planner for Your Wedding

Planning a wedding can be the most exciting, overwhelming thing you have ever done. There is so much anticipation leading up to the big day, and you want everything to run smoothly with no detours from the plan. While there is never a way to completely safe-proof a wedding, having an experienced event planner Westport CT can make all the difference in how your day plays out. When searching for the right wedding planner, consider if they have worked with your venue before, if they are in your budget, and if they are available for your date.

Pick the Venue

Having an event planner that has thrown weddings in your chosen venue before can be a great help when it comes to the logistics of party planning. Your wedding planner may have insider tips and know exactly who to communicate with at the venue to get things done. Even if your planner has not worked with your venue before, they can be your advocate for making sure everything runs smoothly.

Stick to the Budget

Planning a wedding is an expensive venture, and making sure you can afford your event planner is a critical step in choosing the right one. While you want a wedding planner who is competent and capable, do not blow your wedding budget choosing someone out of your price range.

Save the Date

Be sure that your wedding planner is available for your date. One of the last things you want is for your planner to be absent or running back and forth between other weddings on your big day. Having their familiar face around will bring comfort on your day that everything is under control.

Planning a wedding can be stressful but yet so fun. Before you choose your event planner, decide what is important to you and find a planner that fits with your needs.

Mother’s Day Gifts that Say I Love You

My family is not big on giving gifts. We love receiving one but we don’t complain if we don’t get anything on special occasions. We spend on take outs and food deliveries if there are occasions or events to celebrate.

This Mother’s Day, I’ve got two lovely gifts from my special people. Thanks my loves!

Fashion Tips for 40 Plus Women

One of the greatest mistakes that women make in their 40s is not rethinking their wardrobe. It is true that there are some women who are already 40 years old but do not look like a day over 30. This does not mean though that they should not dress their age. A woman who dresses her age will always look classy and elegant wherever she goes as long as she is also wearing something appropriate for the occasion she would be going to. Here are some tips to follow:

  • Rethink Your Wardrobe. Disregard items that you know you will not be able to wear anymore because they are already too short or too loud for your age.
  • Accept That Your Body Has Changed. Women who are in their 40s tend to be more curvy and would put on some weight in some places. Working out will keep your body toned but things that might have looked great on you 10 years ago might not look the same now. Accept that this happens once you age.
  • Avoid Skin Revealing Clothing. Revealing skin at this age is not appropriate anymore. Leave clothes like this to the younger generation.

Remember that acceptance is always the key to feel more confident.
