Beach Weddings in Sri Lanka

Weddings in Asia are known as a larger than life affair. Big venues flood of guests, sumptuous feasts, music and dances, are all factors contributing to the general image. However a certain pattern has set itself into conventional weddings. Guests come, meet, greet, eat, dance and return to their respective homes. This set pattern makes the whole ceremony boring. Why not make your guests feel pampered rather than just being invited?

Sri Lanka is a little island located on Indian Ocean and it has lots of very beautiful beach locations and its amazing place to arrange your dream wedding. It's a small miracle and Sri Lanka has different traditional and cultural wedding sets. Some of the popular tourist spots in Srilanka are hosting weddings big and small. Without any doubt, western and eastern shores are the favourite destination for domestic as well as international travellers. The best time however is between October - March, when the weather is cooler, when the country is blooming with various festival celebrations and when you can experience the true flavours of Srilanka.

While you plan to get married ashore, here are few of the points that you should consider:
  • The concept involves presence of few but special guests, perhaps all in sync with a unique dress code.
  • Guests accommodation should be given due importance.
  • On time transfers, pick and drop of guests should not be delayed at any point of time.
  • Meals should cater to both domestic and international guests.
  • Guests should be treated with regional music and food.
  • Beach wedding dress is different from any other wedding. None of your guests should feel out of the place.
  • Destination weddings also give the opportunity to explore the area. Therefore, the sightseeing should not clash with any of the ceremonies.
  • Each ceremony should be given a different theme to make the event more enjoyable & memorable.
  • Your invitation, gifts and theme should have a local feel to introduce your guests to the destination.
Sri Lankan has an illuminated proud history and Sri Lanka has a unique and its own different traditional cultural system when we compare it with the other countries. In a Sri Lankan wedding it has few cultural symbols which show the uniqueness. Not only the cultural background as well as the other elements likes weather, people, animals, places and all.

Kids’ Birthday Party Themes

Your kid's birthday is coming up, and you're fresh out of savvy ideas. Sure, you could just invite over a bunch of children to run around in the backyard like every other parent does, but you want something cool and unique to make your little one feel special. Birthday party themes can take a lot of work out of planning a birthday party. Choosing a theme makes decorating, games, and even the food much easier to pull together.

From pirates to princesses and many more in between, or you can put together themes that will create a wonderland for your child. They can be transported back to prehistoric times with a Dino Party, transformed into royalty as a Princess or a Queen, or participate in the Winter Olympic Games. Each theme has food ideas and game suggestions so you don't have to plan out anything except a timeline for putting on a fabulous party for your birthday child.

When choosing a birthday party theme, involve your child. A theme can be tailored to your budget with incredible results no matter how much you spend. Whatever birthday party theme you choose, make sure to take lots of pictures and most of all have fun. That saying about "they grow up so fast" is true. Birthday parties are the milestones to enjoy along the way. A fun, thoughtfully planned party will mean far more to the guest of honor than the amount of cash you spend on it.

Hosting a birthday party for your child can be a piece of cake with us. All of our birthday party themes are appropriate for young children—and they’re easy to do. Call us to find a birthday party theme that's perfect for your child!

Tips for Planning a Beautiful Wedding on a Reasonable Budget

The Asian weddings are known for their spectacle and greatness. Also, it has now become the norm for brides to contribute to their wedding fund. Putting two together, couples today have to host a grand wedding event with 1000 odd guests and pay for it. Here are some tips to make this work without drilling a major hole in your pocket,

Prioritize Your Wedding List
Make a list of key wedding elements that are really important to you. With your partner, discuss the list and eliminate items that you could do without. The point is that, it is your wedding day, and you will be too busy smiling for photographs and greeting guests and feeling too squiggly to be bothered about that orchid centerpiece that turned out to be blush-pink instead of baby-pink. Invest in a good photographer who will capture moments that make for memories, or a great makeup artist who can make you look like a princess in those memories. Once you have revised your list, set a budget and stick to it.

Plan Your Wedding During Off-Peak Times
Now this is a trick that will work if you don’t have important family members living abroad as the wedding season coincides with the holiday season .You can save a lot of money by opting to tie the knot on a summer’s day in April, or a breezy beautiful afternoon in October.

Rethink Your Guest List
It almost hurt even thinking about it. But then, since you’re out to save some money a smaller guest list is the best way to go. The bigger picture here is that it’s more important to have a few people who truly care about you on your wedding day as compared to a large crowd of strangers- as is the case for most of the weddings. Did you know that you are charged per plate for the reception? And did you know that there are folks who drop by just to pry, socialize, and of course, eat? Give it a thought.

Go Tech-Savvy
Call in a web designer friend or an acquaintance who knows a Photoshop trick or two, and create your save-the date/engagement announcement card online. This will save you guys a lot of cash considering how much postal services cost these days. Your guests will even appreciate the effort that went into customizing and creating your little online space just for them.

Seek Help From Family & Friends
It can be trying to have a tonne of family to entertain at your wedding and the days preceding it. Make the most of this situation and have them roped in to do little tasks. Your Martha Stewart enthusiast aunt would be flattered to bake your wedding cake, and your girl-cousins can catch up on all the gossip while sewing flowers for garlands. Give your list of favorite tracks to your little cousin brothers and ask them to make a mixed CD.

Personalize Your Wedding Venue & Service
Fore-go hotels as they come with plenty of hidden costs and taxes, particularly for weddings. Instead, use your community hall, wedding hall or the backyard of your home, and trust a decorator to deck it up into a beautiful venue for your big day. Also, this allows you to use your own caterer- which is by far a better option than cold hotel food that has always disappointed. Most family run catering services have an incredible reputation and charge a reasonable rate.

If you want to personalize your wedding just give a call to Vismaya, they will help you to make your dreams come true with an affordable budget.
