Do Something Memorable

Whether it’s a special dance that you want to do with your partner, a unique cultural celebration or even a wedding game that you play, a memorable activity at your wedding is a fantastic way to create something memorable so that you’d want to take plenty of pictures and record lots of videos.

Let Loose on Social Media

Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter are brilliant ways to spread the word and get people talking. However, they’re also excellent ways to record your precious wedding memories and there’s one unique advantage of encouraging people to do this; you can record your wedding memories through the eyes of your visitors!

Whether it’s people taking selfies with you or taking pictures of the venue, there are plenty of opportunities here if you actively tell people to snap away all they want.

Record Videos

Don’t just take pictures –record videos as well! A professional film crew is expensive to hire, but if you’re serious about recording your memories then hiring a crew to do the recordings and editing can be a fantastic way to make your wedding memorable.

In fact, if you’re willing to go the extra mile, you could have several videographers recording throughout the day from the moment you wake up to the moment of your wedding, then the team can edit and produce a video that can be displayed during the dinner. These cinematic wedding crews are brilliant if you want to cherish your wedding forever.

Hire a Photographer

One of the best ways to capture your wedding is to hire a renowned photographer, such as Daz Mack. You’d want to avoid the services that don’t have many ratings, and the cost you pay is going to be relative to how much you care about recording those memories.

If you want the pictures to be professional and timeless, then you’ll want to pay what you think is worth it. In addition, you could also hire a photo booth where people can take group pictures together with silly props and costumes, making it fun for even the kids.

Bachelorette Pad: Living on Your Own After a Breakup 💖

Over the past couple of years I’ve witnessed my friends get married, buy houses, and have babies! But I’ve also witnessed breakups, divorces, and SO much heartbreak. The end of a relationship is painful (as we all know!), but it’s especially difficult when you’ve built a home together.

I can imagine the thought of creating a new home can be terrifying, emotionally and financially. But it’s also good to have a fresh start, which is actually quite exciting. Better still, it’s a great distraction that can keep you occupied and help you reestablish a positive mindset.

Some of the strongest woman I know have made it look easy, and I have so much respect for them. Here’s some of the things they’ve done, and you should do too, if you’re going through the same situation.

Consider the finances

Going it alone can be a little tough on the bank balance, which is why you need to establish the strongest starting point. Leading divorce solicitors can help you gain a speedy solution to those issues. When you have a clearer image of the financial elements, it’s far easier to take the next steps. On a separate note, it’s a great way to draw a line under the relationship before progressing with the rest of your life. This can only be a positive.    

Be practical

The temptation to rush things is enormous, but you must resist the urge. When looking at properties, rental or to buy, it’s imperative to do your research. From checking the local neighbourhood to checking for property damage, those steps can prevent a nightmare. The home should be practical too. Make a list of priorities, which could include things like ‘must have an office’ and you won’t go wrong. With a clear vision, your hopes of finding the best solution are far better.

Utilise space

It’s very probable that you will need to downsize. Therefore, these tips on how to make the most of your storage space could be crucial. It’s also worth using this opportunity to declutter. Selling unwanted goods will free up more room, earn a little cash, and let you start anew. All of these elements are sure to have a positive impact on the overall situation. This allows you to maximise the possibilities within the home. Nobody likes feeling unnecessarily cramped.

Make it yours

It sounds a little obvious, but adding a few homely touches is vital. Not only will this make a house a home, but it’ll let you finally embrace your creativity. Sharing a home with a partner is excellent. However, it does require some compromising. This is your chance to design a home that is right for you, and only you. Whether it’s embracing your colour schemes, favourite materials, or design quirks doesn’t matter. Having things your way is a true blessing.

Be entertaining

Living alone shouldn’t stop you from enjoying social events with friends and family. When it comes to upgrading the property, a quality garden space that’s blessed with good lighting and comfy furniture can work wonders. If you do not boast the outside space, there’s always the lounge and dining room. Welcoming your guests in a positive fashion will allow you to create magical memories in the home, and this will truly turn it into your happy place.

Just remember to get the security aspects under control too, and you should be just fine.

Psst! ✨ Just to be clear: S and I are happier than ever, we’re about to go traveling for 3 months in our converted campervan, and then when we get back we’ll be a few months away from getting married!! I just felt like putting a different spin on the blog after seeing my strong female friends tackling difficult situations with such grace. Not to mention… I’m completely in love with some of these interiors I’ve found recently xxxx

Strawberry Squeeze is a UK lifestyle blog but what exactly does that mean? Mediakix defines a lifestyle blog as “digital content representation of its author’s everyday life and interests”. This is perfect for fickle little me, that changes what they’re doing every 5 minutes.

Whilst my career, my fiancée and my home is consistent, my hobbies and interest are all over the place. Life is too short and I want to experience EVERYTHING. One weekend I’ll be climbing a mountain, another I’ll be surfing, then the next week I’ll be watching learning how to create macrame wall hangings.

I always wonder how successful I could make the blog if it was in a niche with a focus but alas, it just wouldn’t be me.

Do you run a UK lifestyle or fitness blog, and want to contribute to my Strawberry Squeeze? If so, I want to hear from you!🍓
