Hi Guest,

I just noticed your posting and I hope you are still watching this forum for suggestions. I would suggest having a 30 plus 30 party... That is a party 30 days after his thirtieth birthday. That would put you right into April. Also, April is exactly 6 months from October... so you can have a Half Year Octoberfest at the same time. Your husband would have weekends off. You should not have much snow on the ground by April 10 if you decide on the home party. Instead I would suggest having it at the biergarten and hiring a limo to bring you, your husband and closest friends to and from. I think the limo will be much less expensive and easier than renting the tent... and easier to keep the surprise.

Let us know if you are still monitoring here and would like more suggestions.

Survey for Event Planners
Hi my name Richard and I am a student conducting a survey on Event Planners. If any event planner can take the time the time to fill out this survey to the best of their ability, that would mean a lot. It's only 9 questions and it should only take about 2-3 minutes.

Thank you and have a happy holiday!

WEDDING VIDEO TIPS
In an effort to make this post an even more valuable resource we will periodically be updating our post with video tips from our newsletters. There are ten tips in this series and it is our hope that you will find them helpful.

When the bridal couple has made the decision to have professional video services for their wedding a call is placed to a prospective videography company. After the exchange of some pleasantries a question is asked (something like this), What do you charge to video tape a wedding?

VIDEO TIP #2: Pricing of professional video services is anything but a "one size fits all" quote and there are many factors that go into a price quoted for your wedding video services.

Consider the following ...
What would be the result of going into your favorite local pizzeria and asking the question, How much do you charge for a pizza? Before that question can be answered several questions like, What kind of crust do you want (thick or thin)? What size pizza do you want?, and What kind of toppings do you want on your pizza? Once all of the factors are considered then a price for the service is quoted.

The following is a general representation of what can go into a typical single camera professional wedding video. As with any general representation you should keep in mind that some weddings will require more of some services and less of others.

Let us start off with the general equipment needed for the wedding. The camera used to capture the wedding will cost on average between $4,500.00 and $6,500.00 (and don't forget that many video professionals will also bring a backup camera). There is also support equipment such as the camera tripod, tripod dolly, lights, camera and light batteries (enough to cover the entire event), a portable field monitor, microphones, miscellaneous brackets, and equipment stands. Typically a videographer can bring 75 to 100 pounds of equipment to shoot a wedding and has invested $10,000.00 to $15,000.00 to cover a single camera wedding. We haven't talked about the $15,000.00 to $20,000.00 of investment in editing equipment, editing software, duplicating and printing equipment for the studio, all of the month to month expenses involved in maintaining the studio itself, and finally payroll for the company staff. Oh, and while we are on the subject, keep this additional fact in mind on average every four years as technology changes we have to upgrade our equipment to keep pace with customer's expectations.

There is an old saying in the business world that states "time is money". This factor is not always considered by customers with regards to the amount of time involved in completing a typical professional wedding video after the contract is signed. The following example assumes a typical single camera (seven hour day) wedding and reception contract.

• A rehearsal visit a day or two prior to the wedding day. 1 - 2 hours
• Equipment prep, check, and test (day of the wedding). 1 hour
• Arrive & set-up prior to start of the wedding. 60 - 90 mins.
• Wedding ceremony coverage (then pack up the equipment). 1 - 2 hours
• Travel to reception. 30 - 45 mins.
• Reception coverage. 5 - 6 hours
• Post-wedding follow up (prior to editing). 1 - 2 hours
• Editing the wedding. 6 - 8 hours
• DVD authoring, media publishing and printing. 1 - 2 hours
• Review and final approval. 1 - 2 hours TOTAL 25 - 27 hours

A single camera 7 hour wedding and reception day can typically involve up to 27 hours of labor to complete. Take all of the information given above into consideration and then consider the question of price, not only from your point of view but also the point of view of the videography company that you're considering to cover your wedding day.

How much experience do you have hiring a wedding DJ and photographer? What makes you think you might be good at it?

You may have gone to some online bridal sites and blogs to come up with a bunch of questions to ask potential DJs and photographers. Unfortunately, although those questions sound good, most of them are NOT the right questions to ask! Those questions were all written by writers that take those questions and pass them around from one website or blog to the next. Did you notice that they all have pretty much the same questions? How much experience do you think that THEY have hiring a wedding DJ or photographer?


Your wedding DJ is 85% responsible for the success of your reception. He or she isn't just someone that plays music, they are the person that will be coordinating your wedding reception for you and making sure that everything is just right! They are your entertainment, your MC, and they will be the one that keeps it all flowing smoothly for you. Your DJ is the one that will deliver the magic for your special day and night!

Your wedding photographer is responsible for capturing all of those special moments in beautiful photographs that you will treasure for the rest of your life. Hiring a friend, or a friend of a friend that has a nice camera is NOT the way to go for your wedding day. You may save a few dollars, but you can also expect missed shots, some blurry photos, some bad lighting, and some major disappointment in the results.

Making a hiring mistake with either one of them could deny you the fantastic wedding and reception that you deserve to have. Also just because some DJs and photographers charge A LOT MORE MONEY, it doesn't make them any better than someone who charges a lot less.

The first thing most brides think when it comes time to hire their DJ and photographer is to limit their search online for vendors in their local area. What if the best DJ and photographer are 50 miles away and much less expensive than your local people are? So how do you find these great vendors and get great prices?

YOU don't! What you do is hire a company that services a large area, either regional or national. They have extensive experience hiring great DJs and photographers and matching them up perfectly with each of their clients. Most of them have interviewed hundreds, in some cases thousands of DJs and photographers and built their companies using the very best. Those companies DO know the right questions to ask. Did you know that in a recent DJ industry survey it was discovered that 83% of all single operator DJ companies are amateurs or hobbyists that have full time jobs? When you deal with a multi operator DJ and photography company they usually have a full time staff with lots of experience that can expertly answer your questions, help you plan, and make everything perfect for you. They also have a backup plan in case the person assigned to your wedding gets very sick and can't make it.

Also remember that just because you like a DJ or photographer, it doesn't mean that they will do a great job for you! Regardless of who you hire, hire a professional! Your wedding day is not the right time to be part of someone's learning curve.

Housewarming Party
Hello,

We are hosting a housewarming party later in the month, and are expecting about 50-55 people. It's an open house kind of thing so people will be coming at various times. I have a good idea of what types of food I may want to do, but I'm struggling with the quantities. I'm afraid I have too many options, but at the same time I'm worried I don't know if I have enough. So far we're planning a hoagie tray, chick fil a nugget tray, tomato pie, salad, cheese and crackers, and various dips. I'm debating between adding either roast beef sandwiches or sausage and peppers.

Now, for things like the hoagie tray, most places say it serves about 25 people. In fact, nearly any type of tray I looked at says the same thing. But I would think with varying food options I would be okay with 1 tray since people will have smaller portions. But again, I want there to be enough food. Should I have fewer options and make more of those few things? Should I have more variety with smaller amounts?

What should a menu for a housewarming party look like? Any and all advice is welcome!

Husband's 30th.. Oktoberfest in March?
So my Husband is turning 30 years old March 11, 2019. I want to throw him a German Oktoberfest style birthday party, I'd love for it to be a surprise but its not absolutely necessary. Here's my problems:
1) His days off from work rotate and his weekend days off are in January and April.. so I wouldn't be able to pick a date all that close to his actual birthday, or I'd have to tell him the date so he could take off, and probably the day after as well, but then his work friends won't be able to come because they can't take off also.
2) There are no biergartens within 40 minute drive of our home so I was thinking I could do it in our backyard, with heated tents, but what if there's snow on the ground?!
3) Should I wait until he's 30 and a half to surprise him with a backyard party in September?
4) Should I just have it at a biergarten and deal with the drive home (or maybe stay in a hotel nearby)?

Any advice is much appreciated!

Photo Booth Experience (Portland, OR)
Grab your lips and mustache because this party is about to add a serious dose of FUN! When you book Mt. Hood Photo Booth for your event, you are getting something out of the ordinary. In fact, our past clients have told us we are pretty extraordinary. Mt. Hood Photo Booth is not a "Do it yourself" photo booth. Although you can find those if you look, we pride ourselves on professional, high quality service. Our booths are sleek, modern and stylish, our prop tables have LED back-lighting to attract your guests, our software is easy to operate, and we will always have a trained friendly assistant on-site to assist with your event.

Don't know what pose to make? Let us decide...Use our custom made spin wheel and prepare to laugh. We guarantee your guests will talk about Mt. Hood Photo Booth long after your event ends. You will have a great time! Your guests will kiss, hug, laugh, make silly faces, and sometimes will even do stuff that we will password protect on your online gallery so only you have access to see it. 100% of our clients have said they are happy they booked Mt. Hood Photo Booth for their event, but don't take our word for it. Read our reviews and you will get a sense of the fun you are in store for.

Your guests will take home as many prints as they can take pictures...we DO NOT charge for additional photos. Do you want to see all you guests' silly photos? We will publish an online gallery posted to our website within 24 hours after your event. From this gallery you, and your guests, can download hi-resolution images and integrate your photos with social media directly from our website. You have rights! We do not keep the rights to the photos to make more money after the event is over like some of our competitors. Once your album is published, you own those rights and we give you access to every picture taken.

What will your guests say about your event? How will they remember it? Don't let them forget how much fun they had. To get more information, you can find us at www.mthoodphotobooth.com; or on an social media platform (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). We are located in Sandy and Madras, OR and operate out of those two locations covering both the greater Portland and greater Bend areas. We'd be honored to provide you with a quote for your next event. Quote requests can be generated through our online quote request system at the bottom of each page of our website, or through Facebook.

New to the company and looking to host an event between 40-50 people. there is no pre-set budget set aside but boss/supervisor would like to keep the event space, food, fun to at least $20 per person. So any available area in Woodbridge/Springfield, VA area would be greatly appreciated. Looking for December 7th, 2018 date and a lunch event from maybe 12-3pm.

Social Vending Machine Alternative
Social vending machines definitely are a lot of money! What have you given away in the past? What is the focus of this event? Is it a marketing business conference? On a smaller scale, backpacks and laptop cases make fun giveaways. If it's a tech conference, an ipad or ipad case could be an option. Not sure what your budget is.

Fourth Annual Ed Lang Memorial Scholarship Fund Singles Bowling Tournament


Lang's Bowlarama on 225 Niantic Avenue in Cranston, Rhode Island sponsored a bowling tournament on July 8, 2018 to raise money to provide a scholarship to a college bound Rhode Island junior bowler. Bowlers paid $25.00 for an afternoon of bowling to fund the scholarship. Students submitted an application (including an essay) which was the basis for awarding the scholarship. The student with the best application won the scholarship. A bowler won a cash prize, free bowling and a commemorative plaque.

Maria Gaskell and I offered demonstrations of a number of our Education By Entertainment Mind Games activities during breaks in the bowling.

The activities we demonstrated included:
  • Spelling SPOT really fast five times, followed by answering the question "What do you do at a green light." People often say STOP, but the correct answer is GO.
  • Trying to catch a falling dollar while it passed through our participant's fingers.
  • Performing a number of activities while wearing glasses that made everything look upside down.
  • Our Details Activity in which our Awesome Participant Kristal Coppinger was asked what was on her hands while she was securely blindfolded. (Answering the question correctly is really challenging!!!)
We also recognized Kristal's performance by presenting her with a plush animal, a trophy and an awesome ribbon.


There were no other vendors involved.

Congrats! Beautiful Dress
Hello, Wedding on a Budget!

Here's what you should do? Check with venues for a weekday rental. Their space is not that busy during the weekday so they are willing to rent it for way less that weekend rate, which we know runs roughly $3000 and more.

For example, our past bride last year (July 4) had a small budget, and we advised her to look into weekday rental. She lucked up and got a weekday (Tuesday) for $600, this included chairs, tables, standard white linen and other amenities; she brought in outside catering and used us for consultation and day-of-service.

I don't know where you are located but. you should be able to find a venue with reasonable weekday pricing. If you need more help, send you an email with your concerns.

Good luck,
Philly Wedding Planner

Congrats to you both and all the best! smile Regarding your question, tungsten are becoming popular rings with guys who are looking for something different. We think you should go with what your taste and style leads you to. You don't have to follow the typical gold and platinum metals... Check the store's policy on these selections before purchasing.

Be a DIY bride
Hello DIY Bride;smile

Congrats on your engagement and good work so far on your planning!smile

It's great that you can save money on the things you want for your wedding; we love a great saving here and there. However, keep in mind that you should always do research on companies or sites you plan on using before moving forward. Remember, this is your moment to shine, and you don't want any chaos on your big day, right?

With that, you mentioned you ordered from wish.com. Have you ordered from them before? Have you seen what the items are like - is it quality or just... blah? (You really don't want your guests to know that you got any of your items for cheap, only you should know that. You want to WOW your guests from the time they enter the ceremony to the reception area...)

Most sites do not do returns (its WYSIWYG) thus setting up a lot of stress for individuals. So, you are stuck with whatever you purchased without any recourse. Therefore, make sure you read their disclaimer before ordering anything.

Lastly, check to make sure you don't need a permit to have your wedding in the park. Most counties require you to get one before you can have an event there. These permits usually include limitations, whether you are allowed to have alcohol or fire and so forth.

One other thing. Make sure you designate someone to be the buffer between you and the setup crew. This person should be there with you through the initial planning, reliable and have an idea of what's going on; or, hire a day-of-service coordinator. They will review all contracts (if you have) and meet with any and all vendors (again if there are any) and oversee ceremony rehearsal, setup, and breakdown; this is dependent on what's in their contract and what you agree to.

Wedding Dresses
Want to show off your wedding dress? Post a photo of your dress or maybe a dress you're planning on getting for your special day! Where did you get from and how much did it cost?

I included a photo of my dress (front and back) that I wore below. This dress was from David's Bridal for $850.00.





Video is arguably the most effective way to communicate a message in meetings, conferences or strictly for marketing purposes. Unfortunately, technical difficulties often arise when dealing with them, which is why we have put together this quick guide to set you up for a worry-free video presentation!

1. Have a Backup Ready to Go
If your laptop crashes or runs out of battery, you’re going to be in a tough spot, which is why you’ll want to have another option. Having another device on hand is a must. See if a colleague (or the venue) has one that you can use if needed. In order for a backup device to be effective, you must also have a copy of your video ready to go. We recommend having the file on a flash drive as well as having the file available online via DropBox, Google Drive, YouTube or any other preferred medium. It’s always better to have and not need than to need and not have.

2. File Sizes: Less is More
Keeping a small file size for your video allows you to do so much more. If you need a backup version ready at a moment’s notice, a large file may take far too long to transfer from a flash drive onto a computer, and it will take even longer to download from the internet. Try to aim for less than 100mb/min.

3. Don’t Rely on Wi-Fi
It may come as a surprise, but not all venues have accessible Wi-Fi. Even if they do, the signal could be weak—and for a video presentation, this is not something you want to risk. It’s a nice bonus to have reliable Wi-Fi, and it may be your last resort if you’re downloading a backup from the internet, but it’s always better to have the file on your device ready to be played without issue at a time of your choosing.

4. Sound Check
There is a big difference between your laptop speakers and the speakers that will be used to fill a venue. No matter what venue space you’re using, be sure to test your video beforehand to hear it the way the audience will. You may find that the music is too loud and masks the voices that communicate your message. After you’ve put in so much effort to create the perfect video, you don’t want your audience straining to pick up the message.






5. Know Your Screen Space
While it’s crucial to make your essential titles and images stand out, you’ll want to make sure they aren’t so large that they get cut off at the edges of the screen. Projectors and/or other monitors can slightly distort the frame which may lead to some content being cropped out. No drastic adjustments are typically needed as long as you leave about 7-10% of frame space around the edges. It will be best to test out your display in advance, if possible, so as to maximize the space you have while keeping it crop-safe.

Hello Hi; I have a question from event planners.

I am looking to give a special offer for event planners who are renting out a restroom trailer. I would like them to get to a special page on our website.

Can you help me think on how Event Planners would search for renting a restroom trailer different than a person who is planning his/her own wedding?

Company Team Building Events
TEAM BUILDING IDEASCorporate TransportationWhich company team building ideas should I do? The team building experience is an essential part of any companies growth strategies. By working together management and staff can learn from one another. By identifying your group’s strengths and weaknesses will make your group stronger.
Make your organization stronger with these “Top 10 San Diego Team Building Ideas”. We provide these ideas for you to help build your team and company. If you are not in need of limousine transportation services please thank us by liking or sharing our page.
Before we get into some these team building activities we would like to get into the importance of a team.
1) SOCIALIZING
Networking or socializing improves team morale and productivity. If your team is happy and focussed on your companies goals you have a greater propensity for success.
Try and stay away from hiring employees who have low E.Q. (Emotional Quotients). These individuals tend to hyper-focus on personal issues and are not level-headed, or good listeners.
2) PERFORMANCE
Teams working together on fun activities will break communication gaps and increase performance.
These team building events will show to you which of your fellow employees can focus on tasks. Unorganized individuals will waste time and slow down unit cohesion.
3) COMPETITION
Competition always will bring out the best in great workers. It will also shine a light on those who may need you to push them in the right direction. Constructive criticism and confidence building may be exactly what your “lagger” needs. Be sure not to embarrass them or shame them in front of peers.
4) TEAM SPIRIT
When your team is all on the same page and hyper-focused on the ultimate goal you will have champions 100% of the time. Regardless of the outcome you will all come out winners and carry you on to success.
You won’t win all your company fights but you will see how your team learns from their mistakes. Sometimes defeat will bring a team closer together and make them work harder to achieve.
5) CREATIVITY
Creativity or problem solving is something a team will always do better. There’s a big reason why “think tanks” have solved the world’s toughest problems. Bouncing ideas off of one another also takes off the pressure of one person having to come through all the time.
6) COMMUNICATION
Last but not least, Communication! Without communication, every team and individual will fail. Time is of the essence, and the inability to understand one another will cause more headaches than achievements. Make sure your team is on the same page with their projects.

16 AWESOME TEAM BUILDING EVENTSNow the fun part is figuring out what you should do? Here is a great list of 16 Team Building Ideas for your company.
In the past, we have worked with numerous companies. We have done Company Bowling outing. Del Mar Fairgrounds. Del Mar Races. Pokemon Go. Treasure Hunt. Scavenger Hunt. Christmas Lights party. Fourth of July fireworks picnic. Vegas Party Bus. Wine Tour. Brewery Tour. Padres Baseball. Rams / Chargers Football. Community Service. Outdoor Concerts. ** Bonus Ideas** – Horseback Riding, Sky Diving, Best Shot Golf Outing, etc…. Feel free to email us with any of your awesome ideas and we will give you an extra bonus discount.
