Ways to Plan a Vintage Wedding

Arranging a vintage wedding can be a ton of fun, genuine. Be that as it may, there are sure pointers which, when remembered, can make the entire procedure a considerable measure less demanding and streamlined. Here, we impart some of those pointers to you.
It is no secret that planning a wedding is one of the most monstrous tasks one can undertake. And while there are professionals who make it all seem like a breeze, the truth is that there are so many details and intricacies involved that it is quite easy to get overwhelmed. Throw in a theme as complex as vintage for the wedding and you better be prepared for some serious work. Not to scare you, but the deal with planning a vintage wedding is that you either get it right or wrong. There’s no in-between. However, this does not mean that the planning cannot be fun. In fact, the more sure you are about the fact that you want vintage as your wedding theme, the easier it will be to plan it. So, with this first tip, let’s delve into the world of all things vintage and explore the various facets that such a wedding will demand.
The Preliminaries
Before we get into the nitty-gritty, there are some preliminaries that you need to decide so as to get a clearer picture about what your wedding will look like.
  • Do you want to go for a classic vintage theme or do you want a melange of retro and classic vintage? While vintage will have touches of the early 20th century, a retro-inspired wedding will have those of much later years.
  • Once you decide the sub-theme, decide on the exact year or decade that you want to focus on.
  • The next thing you should decide is the scope of the theme. Do you want everything in your wedding to coincide with the theme or do you want little whispers of the theme throughout.
  • Next, from the year that you pick, decide on the colors that you will use. For a classic theme, fresh and/or muted colors like apricot, cranberry, cream, blush, mint, etc., will work. For a retro-inspired theme, think rich and luxurious tones like black, navy, silver, gold, ivory, crimson, etc.
  • Do you want your guests to pay heed to the theme (read: dress up as per the theme) while attending, or will it be limited only to the wedding party?
  • Conduct your own thorough research on the year/s you select to make the planning much easier.
The Stationery
Once you’ve picked the year, the ease of getting on with the rest of the planning will depend on your research and your choices. To give your guests a hint about your wedding theme, pick your wedding stationery accordingly. Whatever year you’ve picked, study the use of fonts, colors, paper, and lingo that was prevalent then to get an idea of what your save the dates, invites, and other stationery should look like. While incorporating these elements, it can be quite tempting to cram in all the wonderful styles you come across. Don’t! It may render your stationery over-the-top and loud, when you should be aiming for classy and fun.
Psst! If you want your guests to be dressed in accordance with the theme, inform them about this in the save the dates so that they get enough time to prepare. Take it a step further and also give them names of rentals where they can get costumes from.
The Venue
It was common practice in the yesteryear to hold weddings in homes and then move out to the garden for the reception. If that’s possible with you (note: the guest list will have to be suitably modified to fit into the home), then nothing like it. You could also go rustic with a gorgeous barn wedding. If not, then ballrooms with high ceilings are your next best bet. If you’re still not feeling the vibe you want for your venue, then ask around at heritage buildings if they allow weddings to be conducted. Another option that most couples forget to take into account is restaurants that have a vintage theme. Take a look at them, and see if they’ll let you hold a wedding.
The Décor
Here’s the biggie: coordinating everything on display at the wedding with the theme you so eagerly picked. The trick to perfecting wedding décor, vintage or not, is to pick the colors first and then pick the items. The rule of thumb you should follow is to pick 2 brights or darks and 1 neutral to balance the overall effect. Once you’ve picked the color, the items shouldn’t be that difficult. Keep in mind the color of the venue while deciding on the color. Also, remember to check what was trending in the year that you picked, and pick colors accordingly.
Again, the chances that you’ll be overwhelmed with the plethora of ideas floating around off or online, are more than high. You love those monogrammed burlap favor pouches and the wild flower bouquet that a woman on the other side of the country used on her wedding day and put up on the Internet. But you’ve already promised your grandma that you’ll be giving away her homemade jam as favors (thumbs up, BTW!). The sheer number of stuff out there is bound to make you confused as heck. One of the most-often repeated tips to plan a vintage wedding minus all the melodrama is that you must learn to be extremely organized. Instead of liking ideas one day and forgetting about them the next, make a note of every idea for every aspect that you like, and on a pre-decided date, sit, look at all of them, mix and match ideas, and pick a winning combination.
Another great idea is to pick a venue that already has touches of the theme that you’ve picked. This way, you’ll save a lot of time and money as regards to the décor. Here are some items and ideas you can never go wrong with, be it a classic or a retro-inspired wedding.
  • Books, candles, antique lamps, and flowers in cups, vases, or watering cans as table décor
  • Bunting all over the place
  • Hired vintage furniture to set the mood
  • Paper pom-poms as venue décor
  • Combination of cotton and burlap
  • Gramophones as the focal point of any area
  • Stacks of vintage suitcases
The Attire
It won’t make sense if your entire wedding venue is perfectly accented with vintage flair and you walk down the aisle in a dress which has a very modern cut and style. You will need to really really hunt around for truly vintage gowns. Ask your grandma if you can modify hers and use it. Look online for vintage gown dealers. There are a lot of wedding planning websites that can direct you towards such vendors. The absolute must-haves in the attire for the bridal couple are:
  • A sexy pin-up inspired hairstyle
  • Pearl jewelry
  • Suspenders and hat for the groom
  • Lace; in shoes or dress or gloves
You could even look up what your favorite style icon (of the year you picked) wore on their wedding day to get some inspiration.
The Food
Now this is really a matter of personal preference. Most couples will opt to pick contemporary food even after opting for a vintage theme. You could do the same. And if you still want even the food to be within the scope of the theme, you can always opt for using interesting methods of presenting the food. For instance, use striped straws in the drinks you serve. Keep polka-dotted napkins for the guests to use. You can take it a step further and find out what the popular foods of the era were and have one or two of them included in the menu. You could even ask someone in your family for a recipe from the era, have it prepared, and make it the highlight of the menu. As far as the cake is concerned, we suggest opting for a simple homemade cake as was the trend.
The Entertainment
A vintage-themed wedding will be incomplete without reminders of the glorious music of the era. Ensure you have the lilting tune of a trumpet or saxophone in the background. Hire a jazz band if you must. Get your hands on a gramophone in working condition and play songs that were popular then. Since circus entertainment was also big back in the day, you could even hire performers as entertainment. The Charleston, Heebie-Jeebie, and the Shimmy were quite popular dances then. Use one of them for your first dance and encourage guests to follow suit.
The Favors
The Internet is your best friend when it comes to vintage-themed wedding favors. There is just so much stuff that you can get inspiration from, you’ll be spoiled rotten for choice. Here are a few ideas that you can use to remind your guests of the theme as they pick their favors and leave the party.
  • Mint tins or tins with candy
  • Edibles like hams, honey, marmalade
  • Matchboxes with vintage photo covers
  • Fancy letter openers
Inspiration You Can Use
Here’s a slideshow full of inspiration waiting to be drawn from for both styles of a vintage wedding: classic and retro-inspired. Enjoy it!
To top off the grand success that your vintage wedding will be, make sure you have a getaway vehicle that measures up to it. Get away on a cute tandem bicycle for a classic vintage affair or in a vintage car for a retro-inspired wedding. Whatever you pick, do it in style. After all, what’s a wedding without some oomph, right!?

Customer Service Has Changed Tips

The basic goal of keeping customers satisfied has always been at the heart of customer service. In years past, it meant doling out smiles and fielding the occasional phone call from an upset customer. In the modern world, there’s a whole lot more to it than that.
The biggest change in customer service is the sheer number of channels through which people can contact your business. Instead of just phone calls and snail mail, consumers can now reach you by email, social media, text message, video call and live chat. Mobile technology has also enabled constant connectivity, giving customers 24/7 access to public forums in which they can talk — or complain — about your company. Only organizations that are willing to adapt and respond to this shift in business-consumer dynamics will survive.
Current business leaders and customer service experts shared their thoughts on how the landscape of customer care has changed, and where it’s headed as technology and communication continue to evolve.
Smart business leaders know that customers are now in the driver’s seat when it comes to public brand perception. The Internet has given consumers a powerful voice, and they’re not afraid to use it.
In the past, if a customer had a problem with a product or a company, there wasn’t much they could do about it, said Robert Johnson, president and CEO of customer service software company TeamSupport. Now, a person can let the entire world know about a poor experience.
“We’ve all seen Yelp reviews, YouTube videos and posts on social media lambasting brands,” Johnson said. “This type of consumer empowerment has only existed in the past few years.”
“You can’t treat people badly anymore,” added Alex Bäcker, CEO and co-founder of queue management solution QLess. “People no longer stand for [waiting] in line, being on hold or having their time wasted.”
Consumer empowerment also means that customer expectations about when and how they communicate with brands are incredibly high. It’s not enough to provide a “business hours only” phone number or email address for customer support — you need to be where consumers are, right when they need you.
“You can no longer segment yourself to service practices that only you are comfortable with,” said Amir Zonozi, chief strategy officer of social influencer engagement platform Zoomph. “When a customer reaches out to you on Twitter, it needs to be solved on Twitter. When they reach out to you via email, it needs to be solved via email. Asking your customers to switch their preferred method of communication is taking your customer out of their comfort zone and should be avoided unless absolutely necessary.”
Social media can be a blessing for businesses that use it well, and a curse for those that don’t. But love it or hate it, it’s here to stay as a customer service channel, and your business had better get on board if you want to keep up with consumer demands. Ignoring customer comments, whether positive or negative, won’t stop people from posting them, and this approach could even damage your reputation more than any product issue or poor experience.
“Embrace social media as an opportunity to not only directly connect with your customer, but to publicly demonstrate your ability to quickly respond to your clients with outstanding service,” Zonozi told Business News Daily. “Every business makes mistakes, but what differentiates great customer care is when the public can see a response that really solves a problem and shows your dedication to individual experiences. People care more about you mastering the response than they do about the mistake or issue itself.”
Simon Chkifati, co-founder of Luxor Limousines, agreed, noting that successful companies have to be literate in all social media channels and know how to productively handle complaints on any of them. This means offering a personalized, relevant response to every customer inquiry.
“Generic responses to customer issues are no longer effective because customers now expect a more tailored approach,” Chkifati said. “Customers who feel cared for will use your service again and ultimately become advocates, recommending your service via word of mouth, both online and in the real world.”
Some businesses have troubleshooting guides and FAQ pages on their websites, but companies are increasingly trying to help customers solve their own issues.
“Customers want the ability to help themselves, and we see more and more companies implementing self-service strategies,” Johnson said. “If done correctly, customer self-service can be a great ‘win-win’ where the customer gets the answers they need at a lower cost to the company. The holy grail of self-service is if you can get a robust customer community put together which allows customers to talk with each other and even solve each other’s problems.”
“As customers use more and more self-service, customer service agents will get more complex questions, so businesses need smarter knowledge to empower agents to handle those questions,” added Anand Subramaniam, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at eGain Corp., a provider of customer service management software.

Today’s consumers are used to firing off text messages at all hours of the day to share information, ask questions and carry on conversations with one another. Although it may not be the norm for business-to-consumer communication just yet, text alerts are becoming more prevalent and accepted. In fact, a recent survey by cloud communications provider Corvisa found that 77 percent of consumers are open to getting text messages from companies, particularly when it comes to fraud alerts (56 percent); reminders for payment, appointments, reservations, travel status, etc. (54 percent); and notifications of sales, discounts or special promos (49 percent).
“Given the increasing prevalence of text messaging, especially among millennials, I think we’ll see more companies using SMS as a way to deliver convenient, high-quality customer service,” said Matt Lautz, CEO of Corvisa. “Texting allows companies to proactively engage with customers in a number of ways, using an outlet that matches the lifestyle of today’s consumer.”
Collaboration allows people to connect from practically anywhere in the world to brainstorm, share and execute great ideas that drive the company forward. The same principle can and should be applied to customer service, both among the various departments in an organization, and between businesses and their customers, experts say.
Businesses aren’t great at this yet, Subramaniam said. According to an eGain survey of 5,000 consumers, the biggest pain points in customer service are insufficient knowledge and inconsistency among agents, and the inability of websites to deliver answers.
“Take a unified hub or platform approach to omnichannel customer engagement and knowledge management, rather than taking a point solution approach,” Subramaniam said. “This enables seamless customer experiences across touchpoints, while speeding up time to market.”
Johnson noted that anyone in the company dealing with a customer issue should be able to efficiently share information, and have that customer’s history and previous experiences right at their fingertips. The right tech tools ensure that knowledge moves quickly and that solutions are recorded for future reference, in case the issue arises in the future.
No matter what industry you’re in, it’s more worth it than ever to invest the necessary time and resources into providing the best possible customer service. Any and all interactions today have the potential to be a lasting record of how your company treats its customers — and it’s in your best interest to make that record be a good one.

How to Avoid Child Obesity

Children of any age do not feed themselves; they don’t go to the supermarket and buy their food. They do not decide on the weekly menu. They do not buy sodas or artificial snacks; they eat what you, as a parent, give them to eat. We all know that school meals lack a lot in nutrition and are abundant on grease and carbohydrates. As parents we also know that many times it has been easier to buy fast food on the way home after a tough day than it is to cook something nutritious and healthy. We are responsible for our children’s well being; it is our hands to prevent our child from becoming a diabetic at an early age.
There are things you can do before it is too late, now is the time to do them. There isn’t much you can do about the school menu, but you can speak with the person in charge of the cafeteria to keep your child away from the mashed potatoes and fried food. Ask this person to help you by giving your kid salad, fruit and food which has little or no fat and carbohydrates. If this does not work, pack him a lunch to take to school. A little sacrifice on your part will go a long way for your child’s health.
Plan your dinner menus ahead of time. Keep the carbohydrates down and add more fresh products like salad and less pasta and fatty foods. We know you are tired after a long day at work so program to do part of the week’s cooking on Saturday or Sunday, put it in the fridge so all you have to do is warm it up and serve. This will save you preparation time and will be easier on your tired feet and brain. Avoid second servings for the children and taking their dinner to their rooms. Dinner at the table allows for family time and it also permits you to control food intake.
If your kids do not like sports, it is fine too. Take them for a walk in the park, or cruise the mal with them for half an hour to one hour. Believe it or not, walking is a great exercise and calorie burner. Keep a tight control over games, computers and television sets, assign your children shores in the garden and pay them a little something when these shores are done. The exercise, the sun, the job and payment will do wonders for their spirits and bodies too. You have to be creative to keep them on the move, hibernating or hanging out on a cushion or bed is bad for them. Plan trips to the local museum or amusement park, or community swimming pool; make them walk, make them move around, exercise is the key to health.
Sweets, junk food and sodas are your greatest enemies. Do not keep them at home, this does not mean you will never eat or drink them; sure you can, but do it occasionally and not as a routine. Kids do not need dessert every night, leave it for special occasions. They do not need sodas, sodas do not even quench your thirst, help them to get used to drinking water, lots of water every day. The same thing goes for junk food; leave it for the times you are out of the house, at the mall, or the movies anywhere but inside your house. Teach your kids to eat well and they will live well.
Go the extra mile today and your children will get used to good food and drink. They will grow stronger and feel better when they exercise and spend time outdoors. They will learn to manage their time better and will become better students and will communicate better with you and between themselves when they lose that horrible addiction to video games and television. Restraining their gaming and television watching time will help them to learn communication and interaction skills they do not need now because they communicate with machines, not people.
It is not easy and we know that the younger generations have fallen into a lethal trap. They have lost their ability to express feelings and to communicate thoughts. If this goes on for too long it is possible that they will not speak or think anymore. They themselves will become machines. Some of horrible episodes we see today on the news have started with a lonely kid who is locked within himself and his mind; a kid who hates himself because he is fat or different from his peers. This is the age of communication, it is true, but we should be communicating between us not with machines. We should use all these contraptions to improve human communication not loneliness.
