Bridesmaid Robes

Where to Get Ready for Your Wedding

Have you decided where to get ready when the big day arrives? Many brides opt to have the hairdresser and makeup artist come to their home rather than having to travel to them. It gives you a bit more time and saves having to find a suitable outfit to wear, drive and find a close park, especially if it’s very windy or rainy. However, if you and your bridesmaids decide this is a good idea, remember to have bridesmaid robes to wear so your hairstyle will not be spoiled pulling a t-shirt off over your head.

It’s essential to book the hairdresser and makeup artist well in advance so they don’t take any other bookings for that day. That will free them up to spend all their time getting you and your wedding party ready without having to rush back to their salon for other appointments.

Make sure you have enough room to do this, though. You need some large mirrors that chairs can be placed in front of, especially if your bridesmaids are all with you. Have some spare towels and hand-towels ready and clean off the bench top space ready for them. You might also want to add your own hairspray in case the hairdresser forgets to bring hers.

PhotoBooth

The Most Important Part of Any Event

If you are organising an event such as a wedding or a party, what are the most important parts? You might say every part is important, but without great photos to remember it by, the event can soon be forgotten by the many guests who attend. Hiring kiss and tell photo booths for the event will ensure that this never happens to your event.

With the ability to take fun photos right in the venue, each and every guest will be able to not only take the photos they want with their own friends, but download them the very next day. They can then choose which – if any – they want to have printed out, or decide to keep the digital file instead. Either way they’ll always have photos to remember you and your event, especially important for things like weddings, anniversaries and birthdays or other celebrations that are significant in your life.

Of course it is important to pick a suitable venue, order the drinks and food and make sure you have music, lighting and decorations to make the place look wonderful. And a DJ will help the night go off with a bang. But you also want everyone to have fond memories of the event, memories that will not fail with age or get lost over the years. The best way to do this is to have good photographs to look at. A picture is worth a thousand words and will certainly stimulate the memories of the person viewing it.

Event Planning – why you need a great DJ / MC

Many corporate or other events are planned around Christmas and New Year to celebrate the season and as a way to say goodbye to colleagues leaving for a well-earned holiday. Such events usually have dancing, music and entertainment. Getting a DJ from a professional company such as Lumin8 Events is an essential part of such an event to ensure everyone has a good time.

When it comes to hiring a DJ, companies and event planners know the value of getting an experienced one who can break the ice and get that event or party swinging from the first minute so that everyone has the fun they deserve. A great DJ/MC can actually entertain and inform the guests at a party so they all know what to expect and what to do – and just as importantly, when to do it.

A DJ/MC can control the crowd of people simply through what he says and the music he plays. He can also keep things on track if there are speeches, presentations or other things that must be done. The venue is only booked for a certain number of hours and some speechmakers go on and on. The DJ can ensure that everything finishes on time and no one is left out who has a speech to give.
