Balloons are really an amazing thing for decorating the wedding venue. You can make the arch for impressing your guest in the entrance and also you can make the table centerpiece decorations. You can verify the link for your reference http://www.bookmyballoons.in/

Thanks,

hall or center
Hi I'm not in your state.
So this is just a suggestion on what we have in Wisconsin. I would check to see if the parks have buildings you can rent or in my area
the cities usually have a banquet room you can rent -like a town hall & you can bring in what you like.
Hope you find something good luck!

4 things to know about weddings
No wedding can do without a photographer. When I was looking for a photographer for my own wedding, I stopped at this site https://taraweddings.ca/ and was very pleased with the quality of their work.The photos turned out to be amazing, lively, bright, sensual and that is very important - natural. I recommend to everyone.
We need some confetti cannons for our gay pride float. We're alternating between a slow song and a big party track. The confetti cannons will go off at the start of every party track and signal to the float participants that it's time to party and start dancing.
These are our options. Which would you choose?
OPTION 1: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0361/0117/products/d2014103194828837_1024x1024.jpg?v=1433250452
  • 1 x E-Shot Pro Confetti Launcher
  • 1 x Control Module
  • 10 x 80cm Prefilled Confetti Shots
OPTION 2: https://dqzrr9k4bjpzk.cloudfront.net/images/9393474/626685733.jpg
  • 2 x LED Confetti Blower
  • 7 x 1kg bag of confetti

Have you checked out any of the venues in your area? Maybe send them a message asking for menus and pricing:

Wedding cake
A wedding cake is a traditional cake served at wedding receptions. The wedding cake is surrounded by superstitions. Cutting the cake was an important part of the reception. Wedding cakes come in several types, such as traditional wedding cakes, wedding cakes based on flavor, smaller cakes or individual cakes, frosted cakes, and cupcakes.

Hi! Just wondering if anyone has suggestions for great, cost effective vendors for a November 2018 wedding! We have already booked our house; it's across the street from the beach where the ceremony will be, and the backyard will serve as the reception venue over looking the lake. We have approximately a $6000-$7,000 budget (including taxes, not including tips) left over for the ceremony, reception and coordination of both for 60 guests total. I have looked into all-inclusive companies around Destin, FL and it seems they all fall in the $10,000-$12,000 range for 60 guests, which is impossible for us if we want to have a honeymoon.
Some things we are looking for that need to fall in that range:

-Photography/Videography
-Ceremony w/ everything (officiant, chairs, arbor, music, coordinator, beach set up/break down, etc)
-Reception w/ everything (catering (laid back style like buffet or stations), tables, chairs, additional lighting, cake, cake cutting, possibly bartenders (can do self-serve if necessary), DJ/Master of Ceremonies, coordinator)
*We are supplying our own alcohol and center pieces for the tables as well*

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!


Thanks in advance!
Michele smile

4 things to know about weddings
A wedding is a ceremony where two people or a couple are united in marriage. The wedding ceremony is often followed by wedding reception or a wedding breakfast. The wedding ring has long been part of religious weddings in Europe and America, but the origin of the tradition is unclear. Hindu wedding ceremony in Punjab, India. Bride in Sari and Groom in Sherwani in a Hindu Indian wedding.

Please consider sponsoring one of our programs at one of your business, conference/convention, school/college/university, community/youth groups or social events (such as a reunion or birthday celebration).

Topic:
Surprise!!!!!!!!!
Hi Guest,

Sounds like your sister's party will be a lot of fun.

If your sister is an adventuresome person, I would suggest a game such as "Name The Guests."

In its simplest form, the host of the party/master of ceremonies tells your sister that it is time for the party games.

The host/mc then blindfolds your sister securely (be sure that she cannot see through or under the blindfold. If using a bandana for your blindfold, be sure to line it with aluminum foil as you fold it).

Have the guests stand behind your sister and make fun group photos. (Be sure to get at least one "fun" and one "serious" photo of just the surprise guests and your blindfolded sister. Similarly, be sure to get at least one "fun" and one "serious" photo of everyone including your blindfolded sister.)

Then the game begins. The simplest version of the game would be to have your sister name all of the guests at the party. Then, the host tells her -- you forgot some people... Keep going until she guesses that you are there.

Alternatively (or in addition) everyone could make their favorite recipe (if it is a pot-luck-style party). Your sister has to try all the foods and guess who made them. The "chef" for that dish then poses for a photo with her. The surprise guests remain out of sight (or your sister is blindfolded for the taste test). If/when she guesses that she is tasting your dish, the host/mc asks her how it got there. She has to figure out you are there.

For more ideas, please feel free to follow up with me.

Surprise!!!!!!!!!
My sister is having a big birthday party and she has no idea that my entire family and her two best friends will be flying out to be at the party. We are planning to surprise her at the venue and are looking for a really cool way to do it, instead of just walking in to the party and saying "surprise". (This is not a surprise party just 5 of the best surprise guests).
My opinion you should contact a wedding planner. They easily provide a photographer for your sister wedding according to your budgets and requirement.
