If you’ve recently got engaged or you’ve been thinking about your wedding for as long as you can remember, you may be considering lots of options when it comes to choosing a venue. With so many wonderful places around, it can be tough to decide where to host your special day. If you’re thinking of going outdoors, here are some pros and cons to bear in mind before you make a decision.

The pros

Stunning scenery

Nothing beats rolling hills, dramatic mountains or sweeping golden sands. Not only can you tie the knot surrounded by incredibly beautiful scenery, but your photographs will also look spectacular.

Making the most of the weather

If you’re getting married in a hot country or sunny skies are forecast, it’s a shame to be cooped up inside on your wedding day. Getting hitched outdoors enables you to make the most of the weather and enjoy the fresh air.

Individuality

When you get married in the great outdoors, there’s scope to make your celebration truly unique. Most of us have been to a wedding at a hotel, a golf club or a castle. But have you ventured into the forest for a wedding, watched a couple say their vows by a lake or watched the sunset over the ocean after a ceremony before?

The cost

The cost of every wedding varies significantly, but often, hosting an outdoor wedding works out cheaper than hiring a venue. If you’re working on a tight budget and you’ve only looked at indoor venues, it may be worth visiting some outdoor options.

The cons

The weatherThe weather can be both an advantage and a disadvantage thanks to its unpredictability. A splendid setup could become a complete nightmare if the weather doesn’t play ball. If you’ve got everyone sat patiently outside or you’re planning an al fresco party, the last thing you want is torrential rain and high winds. If the weather isn’t guaranteed, try and come up with a plan B, just in case.

The practicalities

When you’re getting married outside, there may be some practical issues you need to consider, such as your electricity supply and where your guests are going to go to the toilet. Port a potty rental is a great solution for the latter while hiring a generator could work if you’re tying the knot out in the sticks. If you’ve arranged for caterers to prepare food on-site, they may have their own power supply, so liaise with them in the run-up to the big day.

Choosing a location for your wedding is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning. If you’re considering hosting your ceremony and reception outside, there are lots of pros and cons to think about. If you’re struggling to narrow down your options, write a list, and see which venue comes out on top. Think about what you want to your day to look like, and the kind of tone you want to set. Celebrate your style and personality, and have fun adding some unique, personal touches.

Hotels are a popular choice for many people while they’re traveling. Some like a cheaper and more sociable hostel, while others prefer a more private apartment or house. However, for those who enjoy hotels, there are some important things to look for. Choosing the perfect place to stay is an essential part of getting your travels right. If you pick somewhere unsuitable, it could ruin your time away. But what should you be looking for when you choose a hotel? Everyone has different priorities, but there are some main categories that you’ll want to consider.

The Plaza New York

Convenient Location

The location of your hotel will almost always be important. However, what rates as a convenient location depends on your trip and your personal preferences. For some people, convenient will mean right next to the airport or in the city center. For others, it means being close to the best restaurants and bars or having good access to public transport. The important thing to do is balance your location preference with your budget. Some spots will be more expensive than others so you might have to compromise on what works best for you.

La Palestra

Facilities You Will Use

Of course, your hotel needs to have useful features that are worthy of the money you’re paying. A good internet connection is now a top priority for many people when they look for a hotel. If you’re a fitness fanatic, you might require your hotel to have a gym. If you don’t want to go far for food, perhaps you need there to be a restaurant. On the flipside, you don’t want to pay for facilities you won’t use. If you don’t need a hotel with a restaurant, bar, spa, and gym, there’s no point paying for one. You can find a more basic hotel that suits your needs.

The Plaza Room

A Room That Meets Your Needs

Once you’ve looked at the hotel as a whole, you also need to know more about the rooms. Sometimes, all you need is a bed, somewhere to put your clothes, and a coffee machine. But on other trips, you might want something a bit more luxurious. As well as considering the bedroom, don’t forget to think about the bathroom. Sleek hotel bathroom pods are often the best part about staying in a hotel. You need to make sure the bathroom has what you need, whether that’s a huge walk-in shower or a large tub.

Excellent Customer Service

The service you receive is important whenever you’re spending money. You need to know that you’ll be well looked after in a hotel, even if you don’t anticipate needing anything. You want to know that problems will be fixed quickly and that the staff will go out of their way to help you. The best way to find out about the service you’ll receive is to read reviews. Previous guests will let you know about their experience when they stayed.

If you’re booking a trip, give your hotel some thought before making a choice. You’ll thank yourself later.

You might think the idea of romance and wonder comes built into a wedding. But anyone who has been to a few ceremonies in the past will tell you that the mood can differ substantially. Some weddings really do feel like a legal contract being signed rather than a declaration of love. There’s nothing that makes the ceremony stand out and instead the wedding is completely forgettable. You don’t want that, I’m sure, so how about looking at some of these ideas to add a little romance to your own wedding? If you take this advice, I’m sure you’ll have a splendid ceremony that your guests remember, and you hold dear for years.

Write Your Own Vows

Don’t settle for the traditional vows on your wedding day. For one thing, they might not have the meaning that you want them to. For another, the vows are an opportunity to tell your partner how you feel, showing your love to them and the world. Don’t let this opportunity slip you buy, even if you are truly awful at public speeches. Remember, it doesn’t have to sound like poetry. It just needs to be heartfelt, and your partner will know that you mean the words. Although you do need to make sure that you both spend some time writing your vows. It can be a little awkward when one delivers an epic delivery of love and the other a post-it note of emotions.

Choose An Epic Location

Don’t get married at city hall if you want your wedding ceremony to feel romantic. Even if you’re not religious, there are plenty of other options that will make your wedding sensational. For instance, you can get married on a beach in Hawaii. With a Hawaii wedding, you can guarantee that your ceremony feels truly special and the environment will give you that sense of romance that you’ve been craving. Just imagine walking along the sand as the waves lap in the distance, towards the love of your life.

Or, how about getting married on a mountainside overlooking a stunning view. Again, this type of setting will make your ceremony romantic and spectacular for your guests. If you want a picture perfect location for your wedding, the trick is finding the right wedding planner. With a wedding planner on your team, you can make sure that you find your dream venue.

Add Unique Touches

If you want your wedding to feel romantic, you need to add some unique touches of your own to the proceeding. For instance, you can abandon the wedding march and instead have your own music playing as you walk down the aisle. If you need inspiration, have a look at this wonderful scene from the classic film, Love Actually.

Or, maybe, you could think about how you’re going to arrive at your wedding. You can opt for a car or limo but why not take it one step further. Rent a horse drawn carriage and feel like a proper princess as you arrive at the venue. It’s the perfect way to start the next chapter of your beautiful, personal fairy-tale.

How you look at holidays may not be the same way another person looks at them. Indeed, you may be sharing your life with someone who has a different attitude to them than you do. Maybe you’re a committed sightseer married to someone who wants to sunbathe by the pool. Or a staycationer who lives with a person who wants to see the world.

Maybe you’re someone who likes to travel in style, only to find when you’re planning a holiday together that they love camping. What do you do then?

The answer is more simple than it may seem. While the first two examples are hard to square, camping and glamor can fit together pretty snugly. You’ve probably even heard the word for that – glamping.

Junk Food Glamping Is For Lovers Tee

(Yes, it’s not a great word, is it? It sounds like a health problem.)

Camping in style is far from impossible, so long as you’re well prepared. You’d be surprised how much fun it can be if you make the right choices. And if you’re wondering what the right choices are, read on.

Location: Ready Made Or Your Choice

The most important thing about a vacation is where you go. Let’s face it; relaxation is nice and the holiday vibe is key too. But you could get all of that at home. The location is what matters most, and there are plenty of glamorous camping locations you could choose.

There are dedicated glamping sites domestically and abroad (http://style.time.com/2012/09/07/10-unique-glamping-destinations/). If you don’t want to be tied to somewhere specific, you can choose your location and glamp it up yourself.

Equipment: Travel How You Want But Stay In Style

It matters not whether your destination is overseas or a few states over. If you’re not staying on a dedicated “glampsite,” you’ll need to make it so. Sleeping bags are not comfortable enough, so you will need an air mattress. Find the best for your budget by checking the likes of sleeponair.net. Then pick a tent that allows you room and comfort.

Of course, you’ll need a shower too. If you don’t shower, glamping is immediately downgraded to camping. Luckily, there are portable showers you can bring along – and if you’re prepared to spend a bit of money, they’re quite luxurious. Think of the money you’re saving on hotels, and they’re cheap too.

What To Do When There: It’s All Up To You

Dedicated glampers are so fond of this way of holidaying for one reason above all. It allows a great deal of freedom in a way no other holiday does. Your location is up to you, and you can choose what you do while there. If you travel in an RV, as many do, any roadside can be your hotel.

To get the best of this freedom, a nature walk is advisable. Pack some comfortable shoes and do all you can to avoid sore feet. Where you walk is dependent on where you stay – but beaches, mountainsides, and forests are all a possibility. In the evenings? Well, as with everything else, the choice is yours.
