Planning a wedding is by no means a small feat. There are all sorts of things that you need to plan, purchases that you need to make, and arrangements that need to be kept to. Sometimes it can become easy to feel a little lost in the whole affair. Perhaps the hardest part of planning a wedding is knowing what you actually want and how you want things to pan out. Some people have planned their wedding since they were a child, so they can simply start bringing their plans to life. But the vast majority of us probably haven’t thought all too much about our big day until we’re actually engaged and the pressure is on to start pulling things together. But not to worry. Sometimes you just need to gather a little inspiration to start coming up with ideas in regards to forming expectations for your big day. Here are just a few sources of inspiration that could help to give you a push in the right direction! 

Celebrity Weddings 


Celebrity engagements are always splashed across the media. In fact, different publications will often battle it out to get exclusive coverage of particular celebs’ special day. Now, the majority of us won’t have the budget to completely replicate celeb weddings, but you can draw a lot of inspiration from them. Keep an eye out for different colour schemes, themes, and show stopping entertainment that appeal to you and try to recreate them within your budget. If you see a celebrity have a huge fireworks display amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars on the eve of their big day, you could recreate this with a more humble array of fireworks. There are also plenty of features in celeb weddings that don’t actually cost all too much, such as chocolate fondues, table decorations, or seat sashes, so you could implement the exact same steps into your day too. 

Pinterest 


Pinterest is a world of inspiration. This website allows you to search for pretty much anything, then provides you with a seemingly endless series of aesthetically pleasing images of whatever it may be that you searched for. You can then “pin” these images onto your personal boards, allowing you to check back on them for reference later down the line. Alternatively, you can browse other people’s boards. Just find someone who seems to have similar taste to you and you can find ready made boards with hundreds of ideas in a matter of moments. You can take a look at some of the most popular wedding boards on the site here

These are just a couple of sources of inspiration that you could lean back on when it comes to planning your own wedding. Sure, you’ll probably want to put your personal touch on things once you’ve got your ideas together. But the ideas that you draw from celeb weddings or Pinterest boards really can serve as brilliant starting blocks!

Keep Your Brand Consistent At All Times

by , in
Anyone involved in setting up their own business needs to make sure that they are well aware of branding - how to build a brand that makes sense, how to make sure it works, and so on. But if you have never had to do this before, you are likely to run into more than a few problems early on into the process. One of the most common problems here is that if trying to keep the brand consistent at all times. Achieving proper brand consistency can take a great deal of time, and effort, and understanding which you might not already have by proxy. In this article, we will look into some of the things you can do to ensure that your brand is kept truly consistent at all times.

Keep Everyone In The Loop 

Firstly, you need to make sure that you are doing whatever you can to keep everyone who has anything to do with the branding in the loop. That means having regular meetings with them, posting memos whenever there is a change, even a small or seemingly insignificant change, and generally ensuring that nobody is left in the dark as to what is trying to be achieved with the branding. The most common failure here stems from a lack of understanding about who you actually need to inform and keep up to date. You might be surprised at just how many people need to know about the branding, and how far down the chain it goes. Prepare yourself for that, and you are going to find yourself in a much stronger position. 

Use DAM 

One of the most powerful ways to ensure that there are none of those missteps with regard to your brand consistency is to use DAM. If you are wondering: What is DAM? You are not alone, as many people have barely even heard of this highly useful way of dealing with branding. Short for Digital Asset Management, it actually stems far beyond mere branding, but this is still one of its most common and likely uses for most businesses. Using a DAM system, you can easily upload, share, and create content for your brand. This is done in such a way that it keeps it consistent basically automatically, and it ensures that there are not likely to be many errors of consistency based on human error.

Keep It Simple 

Remember too that it is much easier to keep a brand consistent if it is as simple as possible. Not only that, but simplicity is also a much better way of ensuring that the brand is actually going to have a truly powerful effect, as it is much more likely to stick in people's minds anyway. So if you manage to keep it simple, you are actually going to do yourself a number of favours in one go. If you struggle to keep it simple, just put some time and effort into paring it down a little. You should be able to find that you can relatively easily strip it down to its essentials this way.

3 Reasons You Shouldn't Drive A Car In A Busy City

by , in
Driving is one of life's best conveniences. There’s no need to depend on anyone else if you need to get from A to B - and maybe even to C after that - then having a car is more than useful. 

Having said that, there are definitely times where you may regret getting in your car for a drive. One of the most common examples is driving in a busy city. I don’t think they’re fit for cars, and here’s why: 

traffic, road, city traffic

Much Harder To Get Around 


I think the main disadvantage of driving in the city is that it's just generally harder to get around. A lot of major cities are aiming to reduce the number of cars on their roads as it causes way too much congestion. This basically means you’ll be stuck in traffic for ages trying to get around. Instead, most cities are now trying to build public transport systems that make it so easy to navigate a city that there’s almost no point in owning a car. As it says here https://www.lifehack.org/517515/getting-around-big-city-the-dos-and-donts, subways are usually a very cheap and easy way of getting around. If the city you’re in has one, then it makes sense to use it as it’ll get you from A to B a lot faster than driving.
