6. Call and re-confirm the appointments that have been fixed with all your vendors such as photographers, caterers and florists. Contact with the DJ and reconfirm your appointments too.If you’ve booked the services of a business offering wedding bar hire in perth, keep in touch with them as well and ask them to arrive on time.

7. Keep final payments into separate envelopes for each vendor and mark them accordingly. Hand over the envelopes to a trusted family member and ask him/her to distribute them to each and every vendor timely.

6. Communicate about the wedding day schedule with your family members and friends in details. Keep all the important contact informations of your wedding co-ordinators handy. During the time of the event you may need to contact them on an emergency purpose. So don’t take chance and organise all the important documents with you in advance.

Strike Out The Little Extras

Cutting down on all the small additionals which can hike up your budget is one of the best ways to have a low-profile wedding. There are so many tiny extras that you might not really need. For example, you can keep the decorations low-scale. Buy silk flowers and refrain from purchasing real ones. Both you and your wallet will be happy.

Scale Down The Reception

Reception is always the largest expense of any wedding, but it also has a lot of potential to make your party a budget one. Reduce the number of guests, call only close friends, relatives and family members. In case you own a beautiful garden, or a friend of yours has an ideal spot for hosting the reception, you do not need to book an expensive venue at all. Costs can also be reduced on the food for guests.

Hire a Caravan Bar

Rather than spending hundreds of dollars on purchasing alcohols, get in touch with a mobile pub service provider. For instance, there are many businesses who provide wedding bar for hire in perth. They generally come equipped with everything required for ensuring a steady supply of drinks at any ceremony – professional bartenders, ice for day/evening, cold beer on tap, etc.

Don’t Book A Fancy Vehicle

You need not make arrangements for a special automobile or van for the day of your wedding. If your friends or relatives have their own rides, you can ask them to volunteer. Hiring a fancy vehicle can add a huge chunk to your estimated budget.

No Need For Extravagant Entertainment

Instead of making arrangements for expensive recreation such as a DJ or jazz band, go for simple things like lawn games. Not only are they cheap to hire, but can also get people to mingle better and allow them to have a lot of fun.

Acrylic Displays vs. Glass Cases

Acrylic Displays vs Glass Cases�
Glass and acrylic are the two most popular materials used to make different types of display cases for retail stores, museums, shopping centres, restaurants, exhibitions and homes. When a particular one is to be chosen, the selection depends on where and how is the display case going to be kept. There are a number of advantages as well as disadvantages associated with both. However, the benefits of using acrylic outnumber greatly the perks of having glass cases.

Acrylic displays in Sydney are extremely light in weight and do not require much effort to be moved around. The material used for making them, polymethyl methacrylate, is highly durable, shatter-resistant and flexible. Thus, if someone has a display case at their home, they would not have to worry about it getting accidentally cracked or broken by pets or children. Even if it bumps and falls on the ground, there would be little to no damage. Although acrylic is not as immune to scratches and abrasions as glass and can bow out frequently over time, it is the most optically pure material and not so heavily tinted like glass. The appearance of scratches can also be reduced by applying paste wax. Sometimes, it also comes with a highly efficient UV-resistant coating. Therefore, items kept for display in acrylic cases would retain their beauty and clarity. Moreover, glass is relatively more expensive than acrylic.

Now let’s take a look at the different pros and cons of glass cases. The most positive quality of glass is that it is almost immune to grooves and scratches. Cases made from it can therefore withstand all kinds of superficial damage and still remain unaffected. They can be safely kept in areas where they might get jostled or bumped. Moreover, glass is highly durable and can stand the tests of time without getting deformed. But there are several negative qualities of glass displays. First of all, glass is an extremely fragile material and a display case made from it can break into pieces if it falls on the floor. The transparency of glass is not as pure as acrylic and objects kept inside it lose their clarity to a great extent. Glass cases are generally not provided with UV resistant coating. Those which do have UV-resistant properties also come with high price tag, which is not the same with acrylic displays.
