9 Tips to Have a Perfect Wedding

9 Tips to Have a Perfect Wedding

Probably, many of you are making the final preparations for your wedding or maybe you may still have a little more time to continue organizing.

It’s your wedding! It is good to be advised by your family and friends but never forget that it’s your wedding and not theirs. Do what you really wish for the celebration without allowing the people influence on you. Usually, this is going to be just a once in a lifetime experience, so why not to do it as you have always dreamed?

To help you in this task, I’ll give you some simple tips that will help you to achieve the wedding of your dreams.

1. Customize

If you have already been in a wedding as a guest you may have noticed when the bride and groom have made an effort to prepare it for their personal style and when they don’t.

Every one of the aspects to be considered at a wedding (music, food, decoration, details, etc) should be chosen depending on the tastes and personality of the couple. Be different and be unique so that your wedding event is remembered for a long time.

2. Good food

Food is probably what will be remembered by your guests for a long time. So carefully choose the dishes to create a delicious menu.

Make sure you know what your guests would like to eat, what their preferences are – vegetarian or non vegetarian – and arrange the dishes accordingly.

3. Control the timing

At a wedding, like in any other event, it’s important to manage the time for the celebration to make it as comfortable as possible.

Religious ceremonies are more difficult to control (although you can choose a longer or shorter mass) but if it is a civil marriage, do not hesitate to make it as short as possible!

4. Good choice of music

The songs chosen by you, or with the Dj’s help, are the key to amuse the people at the party. Choose music which fits the occasion and good enough to make the guests dance, laugh and enjoy.

5. The best company

Any celebration is important if the people you care the most are there. Leave behind commitments and surround yourself with people you love, especially friends. It’s youngest people, usually friends of the couple’s wedding, who are going to enliven and animate the party.

So make sure you invite plenty of young guns to energize your party and create more fun for the crowd.

6. Traditions that should disappear

Every wedding follows some traditions. Maybe your family wants you to do some rituals or your religion insists you have to perform some. Whatever they are, if they are not compulsory, make sure to do away with them.

Focus more on the excitement and fun.

7. Dressing the Bride and Groom

To customize the wedding itself is as important as the style chosen by the couple. Forget the impossible and uncomfortable looks. Choose a dress that you really feel identify with. That will make you feel beautiful, instead of artificial and overdressed.

Do not wear a large skirt if you are going to move or dance. With the uncomfortable dress, you are not going to enjoy your wedding party.

8. Natural photos

The best memory you’ll have will be your wedding photographs and this is a task which should be left to a professional wedding photographer.

Hire a good photographer and give natural poses. Strictly ask the photographer not to apply any photoshop or other tricks. Make them look natural and raw.

Above are some tips to make your wedding a memorable event. Always plan ahead and budget for your wedding properly. Remain within your expense limits and make simple changes to make your wedding a really great event to be remembered for a long time.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
