Nairaland / General / Organizing A Video Meeting With Vendors During The Times Of Covid-19 by Blissfulplans: 8:58am On May 22, 2020


Things are getting worse day by day. In India, where most of the population is illiterate and the small vendor business, are suffering during the Covid-19. We are already on season 3 of lockdown. Situations like shoplifting and theft are rising throughout the country. Creating an online atmosphere for vendors to communicate is a hazard, but smartphone technology can allow video conferencing via applications like zoom, Skype, etc.

Making the most out of this time is least we can do as a society, if we allow small businesses to come one the same page this can help us overcome the circumstances. To stop the black marketing of goods and ration we should make vendors and shopkeepers keep constant price rates among daily need supplies. Vendors fixing a constant price throughout the market can stop an illegal chain of supply in the black markets. Volunteers should establish and help vendors struggling with online conferencing applications and technology. Goods necessary for survival are the basic rights of all citizens.

Let us look on the greener side of the grass and say we just got more time to plan our wedding better! Planning a wedding can be very exhausting. But we no worries! We have plenty of time. I am pretty sure all the beautiful brides have searched Pinterest and Instagram to the end of its posts for the perfect wedding attire, decorations, and much more. Most of you have already picked your dream fairytale wedding and some of you are still confused between so many great options. Along with all the good things, comes the responsibility of making sure the wedding takes place smoothly. To manage all the happenings of the wedding, it is necessary to be on a clear track with the vendors. Amid all the rules and regulations to be followed during this pandemic, online meetings with the vendors are the latest thing going on. This helps people to carry on with their businesses and not waste time sitting idle. Online meetings on various video calling platforms are the next big thing in 2020.

Proper connectivity
Across the globe, there are various video calling platforms like zoom, google meet, facetime, etc. that will help you to conduct the meetings with ease. But there are certain things you need to take care of before hosting an online meeting. Make sure you have a proper internet connection so you do not get stuck in the middle of your conversation. A slow connection can hinder responses and also consume a lot of time. Wasting time over a bad network will only create further frustration.

Prepare questions
Schedule a meeting with your vendor in such a way that you get enough time to prepare for it. Yes, it does seem irrelevant but it is an integral part. Before starting the scheduled meeting, make sure you prepare a list of all the questions to ask your vendor so you do not miss out on any queries if in case you get engaged in a conversation with them. It is better to end all the doubts and clarifications in one or two meetings considering the huge pile of more meetings that you might face. Make a list of all your questions.

Go through samples
While talking about different ideas with your vendor, ask them for samples. Go through the samples to pick whatever suits you the best. For your wedding décor, go through the photos that your vendors can provide and also share any ideas that you might have found. Ask them about the incorporation of your ideas and discuss if they can be done or not.

Set a one on one meeting
While many things can be discussed and finalized over the online meetings, some of the things need to be done by meeting face to face. Fix a date to physically meet your vendors after the lockdown. Although we cannot set a fixed date as of now, we can always make a deal to get priority once the lockdown is lifted.

Stay in touch
Keep active contact with your vendor until the requirements for your wedding are absolutely finalized. There is no need to rush for fixing on things as you still have time to look for better options. Make sure to tell your vendors if you’re not 100% satisfied with the ideas and are looking for prettier ones. It is not necessary to host a video conference every time. You can keep forwarding them ideas over texts and get them approved. You can also get the cost details of all different ideas that you have and then analysis and compare each one of them to not mess up your budget.

It seems pretty hard to stay positive and be motivated to hold your hopes during times like these. But nothing is impossible with a strong will and positivity.

Nairaland / General / Putting A Ring On It! by Blissfulplans: 8:40am On May 21, 2020

Your wedding ring is the most precious piece of jewelry you will own for the rest of your life. It is the reminder of that one joyous day in your life which commenced your life in union with your partner. Since you will be wearing it every day, you want it to be comfortable, foremost. It will glow brighter on your finger if it is in sync with your style and character. You must also keep in mind the budget you set aside for your ring.

Most weddings these days see the bride and groom exchanging rings after their vows. However, close to sixty years ago, it was only the women who wore rings to signify lifelong love and devotion to their spouse. Modern wedding culture has turned that act into a mutual exchange of love, commitment and devotion. The gesture is progressive in nature. But it adds the cost of two rings to your budget. Hence, it is necessary to lay down your budget in such a way that it accommodates these expenses.

It is also not uncommon for the bride to choose a style that matches or compliments her engagement ring.

1.Material

For the longest time, the traditional plain, gold ring has been prominent in weddings. It is an eternal style. If you are simplistic and minimal, this ring is the best fit for you. To incorporate minimum amount of design in your gold, you can look for white gold jewelry. It comes with stones that give the ring that extra-fancy look, but the band is as minimal as it can get.

Something that is on the rise and in vogue is silver jewelry. It is cheaper than the classic gold and has more variety in terms of designs. The market for silver is eight times bigger than the market for gold. That accounts for the plethora of patterns available.

Platinum is a good choice if you want to go for sturdiness. It is known for its sturdiness and durability. Platinum rings do not have any external coating, hence there is next to wear and tear. It will look as pristine as it did on the day of your wedding. It tends to be a little more expensive than usual wedding rings. However, it can be considered a worthy investment, since you mean to keep your wedding ring for a lifetime.



2.Style

This is definitely a personal choice. There are many ring styles out there. You can go from a thin, dainty wedding to a chunky, evident one. The dainty style is suggested for long, thin fingers, as the chunky one tends to look overbearing. However, that is only a suggestion.

Typically, there are four wedding types of wedding rings. They are: halo, classic, solitaire and vintage. Halo focuses on a center-stone (a diamond) surrounded by smaller diamonds that reflect light in such a manner that the main stone is the focus. It is encased by a thin band. A classic ring features a thin band with small diamonds on a quarter of the band. A solitaire ring is probably the most heard of. It consists of a big center-stone (a diamond) surrounded by a proportionate band.

A vintage wedding ring does not have any defined meaning. To understand it better, we can say that it is a customized style. If your ancestor left you a stone from his or her time, you can take it to a jeweler and have a custom band made to fit the stone. You cannot determine the price of this kind of ring at a glance. However, you provide the stone, so it is relatively cheaper. This will not work in your favour if you want matching rings for you and your fiancé, however.

Halo and classic styles are on the daintier end of the spectrum, while solitaire and vintage are heavily studded. Go for a style that is in sync with your character. You might want to balance the look of your finger by going for a light wedding ring if your engagement ring is full, or vice versa.

In the end, you need to make sure that your ring falls in line with your values, style and budget. Investing in a pricy object seems fine, as this is something you will keep for a lifetime. Avoid the mistake of going for same rings just for the sake of. You can pick beautiful, different stones and a similar band to enhance the link between yours and your fiancé’s ring. In the end, it is your special day, and your ring is going to have immeasurable emotional value, no matter what the monetary value.

Nairaland / General / All You Need To Know About Booking A Wedding Planner by Blissfulplans: 8:50am On May 19, 2020

You have decided to move forward with your partner, take that big step, and arrange a wedding. You have found yourself a perfect match, someone you want to spend your entire life with. As you turn your focus to planning one of the most important days of your life, you decide you want to nurture it, be tender with it, and be perfect with it.

If you spent 4 years making sure your partner was perfect for you, you can spend 40 minutes to ensure that your wedding planner is perfect for your wedding. Here are some questions for you to nail that first interview with your wedding planner. Remember, you are hiring, and your company deserves the best.

Your wedding planner handles your entire wedding. He or she must be aware of all the aspects that you want your ideal wedding to possess, and know the way to tackle it. Hence, there are several scenarios that you need to pose to your potential wedding planner in order to gauge their compatibility with the vision in your head.

Cue the questionnaire!

1. “Are you available on the date of the wedding?”
You have decided the date of your wedding, and you would like to know right off the bat, if your potential planner is available.

2. “How many weddings have you planned before?”
While you do not have to go for seasoned coordinators, it is always good to know the amount of experiences your potential coordinator has had. While you are at it, also question the most vivid types of wedding he or she has planned, so that you know the quality of wedding experiences he or she has had. Quality over quantity!

3. “Are you available exclusively?”
Sometimes wedding planners take on multiple couples’ weddings at once. You might want an exclusivity clause included in the contract

4. “What part will I play in the planning of the entire wedding?”
Know the dynamic!

5. “XYZ is my budget.”
Money is a sensitive topic for everyone involved, and it is the controller of all proceedings. Before your wedding planner gets above his or her station, you need to be clear about your budget.



6. “How early can I have the contract?”
Even if you did like the planner in front of you, you need to be sure about the contract. Go through it once, go through it twice, because it is important to be completely aware of the agreements and disagreements between you and the coordinator. Take a copy home, go through it properly.

7. “Is it okay if I use my own services for the wedding?”
Some planners have their caterers and bands already listed under their service, and they may not entertain vendors according to you. However, the services they have under them should be under your budget.

8. “What details of the wedding planning will you not be handling?”
It is important to know how the duties are split. For example, you may want some duties at your wedding to be managed by the coordinator, but they may not be authorized to handle said fields. Be clear about the jobs that you want done.

9. “What are the conditions with respect to traveling?”
You might be planning a destination wedding, and that might require your planner to fly out to your location to be there, on-hand. But every planner has their own rates according to the distance, hotel fee. Make this one of the first questions, if you do have a destination wedding in mind.

10. “What is the best way to get in touch with you during the planning?”
You want to know how to reach your planner the quickest, in case of an emergency or otherwise. It might be text, or call, or even email, if your wedding planner is way too professional. Have all the right contacts. Not just of the wedding planner, but his or her subordinates too!

Along with these questions, you must note that your wedding planner should be asking you a lot of questions! You should feel like they are willing to understand the environment of your wedding and the vision in your head. They should seem eager about their job, and both you and your fiancé should agree with the vibes exulted by the wedding coordinator.

This is all a process! If you feel like you just are not able to find a professional wedding planner, you might want to enlist a relative, or a close one to take over your wedding planning. You have to, of course, keep professional aspects like contracts and budget in place, but you might prefer that personal touch as opposed to a rather strict and professional establishment.

Take it all in as you embark on your quest to find your perfect planning match.

Nairaland / General / The Most Touching Wedding Gift Ideas by Blissfulplans: 11:17am On May 18, 2020
Picking a gift for the blessed couple that you are going to attend the wedding of can be exciting but nerve-wracking. You want them to like your present, and you want them to find use for your present. You want it to be filled with love, you want it to be filled with nostalgia. That being said, one can argue that custom gifting can get go from courteous to burdensome really quickly.

Overthinking can lead one to believe that certain items like common household utilities would not be a classy present for an occasion as pompous as a wedding. However, in the 21st century, principles of gifting are drastically changing.

With concepts on the rise like minimalism, veganism, ethical shopping and digitalization, people are contributing twofold into the thought induced in purchasing a wedding gift. Keeping these salient points in mind, we can say that there is no rigid guide that will reveal to you the deepest mysteries of gift-giving, but there are certainly there are a handful of aspects that can be taken into consideration before rounding up on one gift.



FACTORS TO CONSIDER

1.Your Budget
As harsh as it sounds, money is the make or break of this entire situation. You have to consider your budget, and decide on a cap value for the amount to be spent on the present. A ‘cap value’ can be defined as the highest amount of money you can willingly spend, without straining your finances.

This value is unaffected by any kind of personal relations you have with the married couple.

2.Your Relationship
You can categorize your relationship with the couple in three categories: personal, professional, or acquaintance-like. It would be quite strict to say that each of these categories have their own set of gifts that can be given to the to-be-wedded, but there are certain formal etiquette that can be followed while brainstorming a present.

3.Availability of Shops
This is another one of those limitations that will, sadly, affect your gifting experience. You can, of course, order gifts online. However, availability of certain seasonal markets or antique shops can affect the quality of gift you are able to come up with.

GIFT IDEAS

1.Household items
This is a rather personal gift. If you are well-versed with the likes, dislikes and wants of even one out of the couple, you will be aware of the recent model of Kindle they have been eyeing for months, or that hand-blender they have been talking about, boring you to death.

If they have been talking about something for a really long time and not gone ahead and bought it yet, they must be going through some monetary problems. Surprise them, make their special day exceptional by gifting them the object of their deepest desire.

2.Watch or Perfume
A couple’s watch or a perfume is a courteous gift that can be presented on a professional level. Something that can add value to this rather generic present is obtaining a watch from a thrift shop or an antique place. There are multiple vintage watches available online on the Rado website, for anyone lacking charity shops in their vicinity.



Perfumes of very high quality or unique scents can make your present blend in, yet stand out.

3.Custom Embroidered Linens
The best part about this gift is the uniqueness it portrays in a fraction of the price of an expensive and present from ‘the best craftsman’ in the area.

Websites like Etsy host a creative variety of artists and entrepreneurs that excel in craft. A few conversations and specifications can help you design a one-of-a-kind pillowcase, duvet, tablecloth and other linens. The embroidered professionalism and the personal touch of something handmade can create a special place in the couple’s heart.

4.Completely Authentic Items
A trip to an antique shop or even your storage room can help you discover a French vase from the 1930s, or that really large and ornate mirror that is out of place in your home, or a rare volume of a famous person’s collection of letters.

Antiques age well, and gifts like these increase in value as the years go by. We assure you, first edition version of the biography of Marie Antoinette will stand out in a pile of kitchen plates, generic photo frames and candle holders.

5.Gifts that Age
This gift warrants an example. Go to your local cheese shop and ask for a newly made sample of cheese. Wrap it up in a way that obscures the gift. Enclose a note along with the gift that says “Open this in 5 years and enjoy your 5th anniversary!”



Just make sure you inform the couple that that gift needs to be preserved well.

Cheese ages well, and this will ensure that the couple will have something delicious yet inexpensive to relish on their anniversary five years later! It is a sure way to leave an impression on the couple and other guests present. It will automatically schedule a call five years later when the couple will call to thank you.

TIP: Combine this with relatively new, inexpensive wine, and you have provided a classy appetizer for the couple’s anniversary five years later.

Gifts, either way, are always appreciated by anyone who receives them. The thoughtfulness and time invested into coming up with an article that someone would like is a gratifying gesture. Match every gift idea with your budget, the couple’s lifestyle and the nature of your relationship. All the best on your gifting journey!
