Posted by on Aug 23, 2016 in Events | Comments Off on Top Tips for Visiting London

Whether you are a tourist on the hunt for historical monuments or you’re going to visit family, there’s nothing like London. It may be a grey and very busy city but it is the capital of England and the business hub of the country. The amount of times people go and visit and become changed because of London is written all over the history pages. There is so much of our past weighted heavily in London and it is still a twenty four hour city that never sleeps. Choosing to visit really depends on whether you are going for business or leisure and we’ve put together some top tips for visiting one of the truly buzzing cities in the world!

  • We don’t mean the food although there are plenty of restaurants that serve such a delicacy, we mean the travel card. Being able to hop from bus to train to tube and back within the six zones of the London perimeter sounds complex but ensuring that you pick up an Oyster card from any tube station means all that hip-hopping around London won’t cost you anywhere near as much as the paper ticket. Oyster up before you go and make sure you map your route around the underground.
  • Table booking. Advance booking your meals, especially if you’re a family and don’t want to stick to the likes of McDonalds and Five Guys, means that you can ensure you’ve a dinner reservation in some of the busiest places. Being able to turn up at TGI Fridays in Leicester Sq and not actually have to wait for a table can really make the difference to the evening especially with younger kids in tow.
  • Trains! If you’re unlucky enough to not have a car, train travel is usually the method of transport to get into London from further away and the earlier you book the cheaper it is. Make sure that you have a railcard if you travel as a family or a Two Together railcard works for couples
  • Lists! Make lists! If you’re visiting for business reasons know your travel options from hotel to office or promotional agency London and know your timings. Make a timetable of meetings you have to attend and ensure you’re sorted for travel costs and lunch etc before you start.
  • Buy up your tickets for attractions early and ordering for group tickets early means you’ll get significant discounts. You can visit so many places for free if you’re on a budget such as the museums (Natural History, Science and British), or the galleries like the Tate Modern are also available to you. Madame Tussauds always has offers on for the waxworks and the London Eye and for those out there who like to be a little bit frightened, the London Dungeons is always a winner! Next door to its new location is the London Aquarium and the Sega arcades.

Enjoying London is really about the scenery though and anyone who visits London would love the London backdrop as they explore.

Things you need to avoid when decorating or booking chair covers

Posted by on Jun 15, 2016 in Events | Comments Off on Things you need to avoid when decorating or booking chair covers

Wrinkles are a big no no. It is bad enough that you are getting wrinkles while planning your wedding but getting wrinkles on your seat covers? Now that is just an eye sore to just tolerate it! Give yourself an assurance that your linen provider is handling the chair covers properly which also includes the accessories, bows or the sashes attached. Moreover, when the delivery of the linens arrives, try checking if they are “wrinkle free” before the organizers start covering them on the chairs. Also, while putting the covers, be sure that the linens are being manipulated carefully, otherwise it may not turn out the way you wanted it to be.

Avoid second hands. Running on a budget? We all get that but do yourself a favor, do not settle for used linens please. There are some linen providers who prefer to wash their linens after being used in an event. Also, some of the second hand or soiled linens have certain damages such as stains, cuts and deformation or faded colors. It is better if you have a trusted provider for your covers so that you can have rest assure you will have the best linens on your big day or if your provider is someone you were just referred to then do not forget to inspect the materials for the mention damages. Do not be a victim of this. You do not want to be on a bad mood on your special day.

Equality. Do not play the mix and match game. When booking linens for your chair covers, make sure that you consulted your linen provider that all linens are made equally or identically related to the wedding’s theme.  Also, be mindful that it should be enough for covering the desired number of chairs for the venue. Do not come to the point wherein half of the chairs are being covered that is out of your plan just because your organizers ran out of material. Weddings only often come once in a lifetime so give your guest a seat they will surely remember.

“I am on a budget strike.” Oh look at that rack of linens, it’s on sale! Or let’s just settle for this one because it’s cheaper compared to the satin one. Sounds tempting isn’t it? Again, do yourself a favor, DO NOT DO IT! Always keep repeating this saying in your head, “It is a wedding. It only comes once in a lifetime.” Give yourself the right and best chair covers for weddings  or perhaps choose venue draping on your wedding day. Choose quality over quantity. While planning your wedding day, prepare already ahead the desired budget so that you will be able to collect and select different options in choosing the materials needed. In that way, it is more organized and well-prepared especially if there are unexpected changes that come along the way with regards to lack of stocks or delivery failure.

Avoid bad services. Getting to know your wedding providers is just like choosing who you sit with at your new school during lunch time. Be sure to do your research first before booking your wedding chair providers. Gather first different feedbacks from people who already tried their services. If majority of the feedbacks are positive then go for it.

Benefits of DJ for Hire in Hertfordshire

Posted by on Jun 15, 2016 in Events | Comments Off on Benefits of DJ for Hire in Hertfordshire

Do you have a big event coming up? If so, then you should definitely consider hiring a DJ including dj for hire in Hertfordshire. This can provide a dinner, reception, etc. with your favorite  jams. Hiring a DJ can provide tons of different benefits including the following ones:

  1. Audio system

This is one of the key features provided by the DJ. The music is at the centre of many events, so it’s important to have a professional audio system. Unfortunately, most people don’t own such systems, and the cost of renting them can also be quite high. What’s the best solution? It’s advisable to hire a professional DJ since they’ll have all the audio equipment needed to help them have a great time. On the other hand, renting such systems can be very expensive, and of course the event wouldn’t be the same if it didn’t have any music, so that’s probably a situation you want to avoid.

  1. Professional DJ-ing

Another key benefit of hiring a professional DJ is that you’ll be able to enjoy the services of a professional DJ. This is definitely a plus as they’ll have the know-how and experience to provide the best experience possible. You certainly want your event to be as special as possible. There are various ways to achieve that result and one of them is definitely by hiring a professional DJ. This will help to ensure that everything goes smoothly as possible. For example, a DJ often has their own mixing equipment, which will make the event even better.

You might have the idea that not hiring a DJ is a cheaper option so it’s one you should consider. The problem with such a situation is that it would provide jams at your party, reception, etc. without the professional expertise of a DJ. That can be an unwanted experience as the person playing the music will likely have little or no experience as a DJ. In fact, the results could be disastrous. That’s certainly an experience you want to avoid as it could disappoint your guests, which is certainly a situation you’ll want to avoid. On the other hand, hiring a professional DJ can provide all the jams you want to hear, and do it in a professional way that includes the lighting/audio equipment needed to make the event excellent and everyone happy.

  1. Lighting equipment

When you think about hiring a DJ you probably first think about the music itself. That’s reasonable. However, the lighting can also add some pizzazz to the dance floor and help to make the event even better. Such equipment is quite expensive, and can have a high price tag to purchase or just rent. That’s why it’s highly advisable to hire a professional DJ since they’ll already have access to such equipment. When everyone’s on the dance floor they’ll get a great experience due to the laser lights added to the music. It’s certainly one of the best perks of hiring a professional DJ.
