Measuring Up Your Wedding Hall

It always amazes me just how little planning some people do for their big day. Granted, some people take it to extremes but others just think everything will fall into place and not worry about it too much. It’s those people that get a big shock when the day arrives and things go wrong.

Take the wedding hall for instance. There have been so many cases where people just invite too many people and things get overcrowded very quickly. So I always recommend you properly measure up your hall and the number of people you are inviting to make sure there is room for everyone.

You can use several devices to measure the length and width of your hall. You get get extra length tape measures from DIY stores which will do the job. Or if you want to get technical then you can buy laser tape meaures which can do the job in seconds. You can see reviews here http://lasertapemeasure.org. These measure distances in seconds and you only need one person to use them. They are very accurate and will certainly speed up the process.

If you don’t have the funds for an electronic measuring device then you can also try an old fashioned trundle wheel which you can pick up very cheaply. Whatever you choose, just be sure to realise the importance of making sure your hall is big enough to accommodate all your guests. The last thing you want is an overcrowded hall with lots of unhappy guests on your big day.

Wedding Gift Ideas – Pizzelle makers, Panini Presses and more

When it comes to buying that perfect wedding gift, there are lots of things to consider. If the bride and groom have a list already prepared, then you can simply choose one of the things on that list. But if there is no list then you’ll have to use some common sense to choose that ideal present.

Items for the kitchen are always useful and make great gifts. Small electrical items are quite inexpensive to buy but will get a lot of use in the new marital home. Coffee makers for example are very popular and there are so many variations these days. Ones that make espresso coffee, cappuccino and regular coffee all in the one machine.

Or you can think outside of the box and go for something a bit unusual. The best pizzelle press on the market can be bought for less than $100 and gives them something different. Pizzelles are really tasty and make great treats and perfect for young and old. So they can use it for children or even dinner parties to make it different and something to remember.

You could even consider easy to use panini presses like these. There are so many variations of paninis that can be made using them that they will never go out of fashion. Again, the best ones can be bought really cheaply and you can pick up an excellent one for $50 or so. Just like these pizzelle machines, they are perfect for kids sandwiches and can also be used for dinner parties with fancier fillings.

Hopefully these ideas will make it easier for you to choose that ideal gift for the wedding. You don’t have to stick to traditional gifts these days, think outside the box and give them something that will not only bring a smile to their faces but something that will also get a lot of use in the home.
