Preparing For Your Big Day

All of us dream of marrying a special person someday in our life. This is especially true if you are a girl. We have dreams of our wedding day since we are small. Therefore, when we find that special person and when our big day is fast approaching, we want to make that dream a reality. However, the reality is not as easily achieved, unlike the dream. There are many things to consider. You would have many options to choose from, in terms of essential items such as wedding attires, décor, food, entertainment etc. It can be a little confusing as the options are endless. Therefore, we thought we would tell you some things we consider to be important when planning your wedding.

Get the Best Price Possible
Let’s face it; weddings are expensive affairs even if you decide to have a small ceremony. There would be some essential items that you would need to have, but none of them come at a cheap price if you want an elegant affair, which, we all know is everyone’s dream despite whether it’s a small wedding or a big one. Therefore, it is important that you get the best deal possible on all items that you plan to order for your wedding. After all, there is no need to waste any more money than is absolutely necessary. Wedding vendors have recognized this requirement of their clients and thus offer lunch beffet in Bangkok, visit http://bangkoklumpinipark.crowneplaza.com/restaurants-and-bars depending on your preferences and budget. You can choose a wedding package that suits your needs when you plan your wedding.

A wedding planner can help you in this regard or you can even go ahead and contact the vendors directly, cutting down on the cost. Hotels also offer packages for your big day. They can be for a lavish affair or a simple yet elegant wedding, depending on your preference. Both kinds can be customized as per your requirements and the price is generally quoted as per head, which may include the price for dinner or lunch, a welcome drink etc.

Make a List
It is crucial that you make a list of things you need to do and to have at your wedding. Starting from guest lists, down to wedding package and the little details involved. For instance, Decor is a crucial element of your wedding day. Make sure that you make a list of all the items you plan to have. Attach your ideas to those lists before you go to meet your vendor. Also, make sure to do your research in finding a good vendor. Thereafter, meet them with your ideas and ask them how they can be executed. It is best if you can visit the venue with the vendors, so that they can get a better idea of what you require.

Travelling the World in Your Comfort Zone

 

While some would say that the point of travelling is to move out of your comfort zone, there is nothing to prevent you from travelling the world, seeing all the sights and still remaining in your comfort zone. After all, different people have different subjectivities and there is nothing wrong with indulging in your favourites and necessities on a trip abroad. Here are some suggestions:

Pick a Favourite Hotel Chain

No hotel company in the world has a hotel in every country, although Hilton comes pretty close. But there are some hotel chains that cover entire regions and once you get onto those, you will find pretty cushy tourist deals in each one. For instance, you can travel all across Asia Pacific by moving from one hotel to another within the same chain and go to all the countries. This way, you will always have the amenities that you are used to, although there will be some differences in each hotel. This also applies to food and drink; certain fast food chains have outlets even in the remotest of locations so if you have a preference for a burgher or pizza made a certain way you can always find the familiar sign boards.

Go on Specialty Tours

If you are one of those people who get bored quickly in a new place, find specialty tours like golf holiday packages or religious pilgrimages that will take you around the country and give you something to do as well.

For instance, if you take golf holiday packages around the Mediterranean, you can easily intersperse “touristy” things like sightseeing in between the golf games that are your first priority. That way, you will always have something to look forward to on days when you are not ‘seeing the country.’ Similarly, even on religious pilgrimages, the organizers usually set aside a few days in the itinerary to let the pilgrims see the sights and get some shopping done. That way you get to explore the country while indulging in your comfort zone: an activity that you love.

Pay Top Dollar

The more money you have to spend, the less inconvenienced you will be when you travel. This is not to say that all backpackers and budget travellers have financial limitations; most of these globe trotters prefer seeing countries this way, as it allows them to see the country as it is without the veneer of comfort that the tourism industry puts on it. But if you are willing to spend top dollar on your accommodation, transport arrangements, flight details and guides for the tourist spots, you can spend the entire trip cocooned in the familiar comforts of home such as air conditioned vehicles, wifi facilities and tour coaches that literally take you 20 feet above the ground as you drive past.

Always Find A Way To Travel Cheap

Travelling has always been a very expensive pastime limited to a certain group of people with the means to spend. However, in this modern day and age, especially for the youth who do not necessarily want or need the same facilities as adults and can rough it out, there are a large number of opportunities for travelling, not only within the country, but all around the globe. These means are not only closer to the actual local population, thus giving a much more authentic experience of the country or city, but also is a great way to interact and network with others of the same age sharing the same interests. Following are ways in which one may reduce costs on accommodation, which after transport and food expenses, cover the bulk of the expenses. A reduction in the cost of accommodation reduces a significant amount off your travel budget, and the following are some such options open in the market, especially for the younger generation who wouldn’t mind bunking on someone’s couch or with a five other people and a common toilet. 

Couchsurfing

As the name suggests, yes it is bunking on someone’s couch, usually for free or for a very small price. This concept was derived especially for the youth who want to travel but have little money to spend on fancy hotels. People started renting out their couches, rooms and air mattresses to people for a very small charge compared to the hotels and even motels. Thus, people from all over became a form of an Airbnb property manager, someone who not necessarily rents an air mattress, but rents some form of accommodation to travelers for a very small price. Some locals even help you explore the city and even allow you to cook meals, thereby saving on food costs significantly.

Youth Hostels

Youth hostels can be found all around the globe and are specifically designed for the youth with a vibrancy that matches their exciting lifestyles. An interesting array of individuals travelling alone or in groups pass through these hostels creating an interesting web of connections linking people from all parts of the world. If you do not mind bunking with a few others in the room, most hostels have cooking facilities, decent toilets and other amnesties plus people with an exhilarating new perspective of the world.

House-sitting

This is an ingenious way of cutting down on accommodation costs but still travelling to new places. While the owners go on vacation, you can watch over their houses. I personally am not sure if I would want to leave my house open to a complete stranger, but it is apparently a common practice in certain countries and is something one might try when trying to travel on a low budget.
