5 Tips To Help You Hire Your Dream Wedding Band

So, you’re getting married – congratulations! There’s plenty to do in preparation, not least of which is arranging the perfect wedding entertainment for your special day. If you’ve got your heart set on a live band performing for you and your guests at your wedding reception for the ultimate party to celebrate your marriage, don’t book anything until you’ve read this post. Here are 5 essential tips to ensure you hire the wedding band of your dreams.

1. Choose the Right Style of Wedding Band

First things first, you need to think about what type of wedding band you want to hire. There are several factors to consider here, and not just whether you’re a fan of a particular band’s style of music (though that is important). Before you begin your search there’s a few questions you should ask yourself, the answers to which will steer you in the direction of your ideal wedding band for hire:

“What is my favorite musical genre?”

It’s your big day, so make sure you book a band that reflects your personality as a couple. If you have your heart set on a specific type of band, then you should go ahead and book that type of band! But, a word of warning before you do, think about…

“Who will be attending my wedding reception?”

While it’s important to book a wedding band who play the music you love, don’t forget about your guests! If nobody else shares your tastes, you’ll be faced with the horror of an empty dance floor. Think about the ages and tastes of your loved ones and choose a band who’ll play something for everyone.

“What is the theme of my wedding?”

There’s a multitude of function bands around, in pretty much every style and genre you can imagine, so if you have a particular theme planned for your wedding, rustic, it might be a good idea to book a band who fit that theme. Also be wary of booking a band who are the complete antithesis of your theme – for example, booking a retro tribute band at your ultra-modern wedding reception.

“Where is my wedding taking place?”

Related to the theme, it’s a good idea to pick a band whose image and style is suited to your chosen venue. There’s plenty more to think about when it comes to booking a suitable band for your venue (more on which later).

2. Work Within Your Budget

The price of live wedding bands can vary wildly, so make sure to keep your budget in mind at all times! The cost of hiring a wedding band depends on a range of factors:

The band’s popularity

A busy band is an expensive band! The best bands are often booked up years in advance, so can afford to charge a premium. If you’re going after a popular band, booking them out of the peak wedding season or on a less popular day (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Sunday) is a good way of saving some cash.

The size of the band

Each member of a band needs to earn a wage, so with each additional member, the cost of hiring a band increases. If you can’t live without a full horn section but your budget won’t stretch that far, many smaller band line-ups perform along with professionally recorded backing tracks to give you a huge sound for a fraction of the price.

How far the band have to travel

The farther away the band are from your venue, the more you’ll have to cover in travel expenses, so it’s a good idea to go for a band who are relatively local to your venue if you’re looking for the best deal.

How long the band spend at your wedding

If you want to book a band to be with you for the whole day, or to stay later than their standard curfew (which tends to be midnight) expect to pay a little more to cover the extended duration.

3. Get To Know Your Band

You’re going to be sharing the biggest day of your life with these guys, so make sure to get to know their character first. How you discover your chosen band will have a bearing on how you get to know what they’re all about. If the band have been personally recommended by a friend, then you’re all good, but if you’ve found your band online or through advertising, it’s a good idea to do some digging.

Band websites and agency websites will have plenty of information for you to take in, so make sure to watch every video, listen to every audio sample and read every blog post featuring the band you can get your hands on.

It’s all well and good reading what a band wants you to read about them, but how about some unbiased testimony? Check the big review sites like TrustPilot and Yelp, as well as social media for unvarnished reviews of your band. Any glaring problems will show up here and help you avert the disaster of booking an unreliable band for your wedding.

If you can, try to chat with your band before you hire them, even if it’s over email, and ask any burning questions that are concerning you about booking them to be a part of your wedding. Here’s a few key questions you should ALWAYS ask before you hire any band:

“What time will you arrive and how long will it take you to set up?”

It’s important to know these details in advance. You don’t want to be panicking on the day of the wedding about what time the band are due to arrive when you should be enjoying every precious moment. Knowing how long a band takes to set up means you can schedule it around everything else that’s due to take place, especially if your reception is taking place in the same room as your wedding breakfast – nobody wants to hear the drummer crashing about when they’re trying to enjoy their food!

“How long are your sets, and how many do you play?”

Different bands play for different amounts of time. Standard bookings tend to be either 2 x45 minute sets, 2 x 60 minute sets or 3 x 40 minute sets. Establish how much live music you’re getting for your money.

“What is your latest finishing time?”

Want to party on into the early hours? Make sure to discuss this with your band and avoid the disappointment of the party wrapping up early on the day itself.

“Do you provide a DJ?”

Bands are made up of humans who get tired and need refreshment breaks – check whether the band provides music to fill these gaps, and for after their performance has finished so you’re not left with any awkward lulls on the dance floor.

“Do you supply sound and lighting?”

Not all bands supply this equipment and your venue may not have adequate sound equipment for a live band to sound at their best, so make sure you check before you spend money on a band who won’t sound any better than a transistor radio!

“Are you insured?”

Depending upon where in the world your wedding is taking place, bands require differing levels of insurance to perform live. Make sure to check whether they have the necessary documentation. Most venues will insist on seeing this before they allow a band to perform.

“Will you learn a special request?”

Got a special song you’d like performed for your first dance? Be sure to check whether your wedding band are happy to learn it and whether they’ll do it free of charge or for an additional fee. Don’t leave this to the last minute and miss out on a magical moment.

4. Check Whether Your Band Has Any Limitations On Live Music

Many venues impose certain restrictions on live music. It’s essential you check with your venue whether they have any limitations and get the details in writing BEFORE you book a wedding band. Key limitations to be on the lookout for include:

Limited performance space

If you’ve booked a huge 13-piece band, but there’s no room for their equipment, the band aren’t going to be able to put on the show you’ve paid for. Find out your venue’s space for performance and relay this to your band.

Curfews on live music

Some venues have a cut-off point for how late live music can be performed, some as early as 9 or 10pm! Don’t fall foul of this and be left with a truncated evening party.

Volume limitations

This is the big one. Some venues don’t allow music to be played above a certain decibel level, and have the equipment to ensure this can’t happen. Sound limiters monitor the band’s levels and in some cases cut off power to the band if they exceed the stated decibel limit. It’s vital you relay any sound limitations to your band well in advance so they can bring appropriate equipment. Most bands can work around these restrictions with the use of acoustic instruments and electric drum kits, though if you want that authentic live band sound, you may have to reconsider your choice of venue!

5. Book Safely and Securely

Make sure you sign a contract with your band that guarantees they turn up on time and can’t pull out without a very good reason. There’s nothing worse than booking a band well in advance only for them to cancel at the last minute. Booking through a reputable wedding entertainment agency is a good way to make sure you are covered in any eventuality. If the worst were to occur and your band canceled, a good agency would do everything in their power to find you a good replacement.

Happy Wedding Planning

Armed with these tips, you should be able to find your dream wedding band and book them without any hassle. The wedding planning experience can be hectic, not to mention stressful, but you (hopefully) only do it once, so enjoy it!

A Look At Syria Through The Eyes Of Its Many Flags

Syria is currently making the headlines because of the Civil War there, but this country has more to offer than turmoil and bitterness.

Syria’s history is rich and its capital, Damascus, is one of the oldest cities in the world. The flags of Syria also tell an interesting story.

Let’s take a brief look at those flags and see if it can give us more insight on Syria.

The Kingdom of Syria

Until the end of World War I, Syria was a part of the Ottoman Empire and used their symbols. After liberating the country in 1918, the Hashemite dynasty adopted the Arab Revolt flag.

flag of kingdom of syria from 1920-03-08 to 1920-07-24

The flag was designed by a British diplomat who wanted to fuel the revolt. The symbol features a black-green-white tricolor with a red triangle that represents the royal family.

It was the official flag of the Kingdom of Syria until 1920 when the French occupied the country. It’s interesting to note that this flag is today the official flag of Jordan.

The French Occupation

French got the mandate of Syria from the Allied Supreme Council in 1920. General Henry Gouraud occupied Damascus and dethroned the King. Various sources claim that a sky-blue flag with a French Tricolore and a white crescent was used after the fall of King Faysal.

Gouraud established a Federation of Syria in 1922, which used a horizontal green-white-green flag with the French Tricolore in canton. The State of Syria formed in 1924 by the merging of Aleppo and Damascus used the same flag.

The Syrian Republic

Nationalists were getting stronger in the twenties and the French were pressurized into allowing the formation of the Syrian Republic in 1930. According to the Constitution of the newly-formed republic, its flag was divided into three equal and parallel green, white and black sections, with the three stars representing the districts in the middle. History books claim that the flag was first flown in Aleppo in January 1932.

Although they signed the Independence Treaty in 1936, the French remained in Syria until the World War II finished. In 1946, the Syrian Republic got full independence and confirmed the green-white-black tricolor as an official symbol.

The United Arab Republic

Syria formed the United Arab Republic with Egypt in 1958. This short-lived union lasted for three years and was broken up after an uprising by the Syrian Army. The United Arab Republic used a horizontal tricolor with red, white and black colors. The two green stars in the center represented Syria and Egypt.

The Ba’athist regime tried to make a new union with Egypt and Iraq in 1963. Although the process failed, Syria adopted a flag that should have symbolized the union. It was a small adjustment compared to the United Arab Republic’s pennant as there were three starts in the center (Syria, Egypt, and Iraq).

The Federation of Arab Republics

Syria continued the tendency to form unions in the seventies. The president Hafez al-Assad signed a treaty to constitute the Federation of Arab Republics with Libya and Egypt in 1972. The official flag replaced the stars in the middle with the Hawk of Quraish. The hawk, which is a symbol of the Prophet Muhammad’s tribe, held the ribbon with the name of the Federation. Syria’s flag was a bit different as it did not include the name of the country below the scroll.

The Federation lasted until 1977, but Syria used the flag for three more years.

Syrian Flag Today – A Country of Two Flags

The last change of the official flag in Syria occurred in 1980. The horizontal red-white-black tricolor with two green stars was readopted as a symbol of Syria’s dedication to the Arab unity.

Historians offer several alternatives for what the colors on the flag mean:

  • Red – the blood spilled for freedom
  • White – the Umayyad Caliphate (or a peaceful future)
  • Black – the Abbasids Caliphate (or oppression)
  • Green – the Fatimid Caliphate (or the Rashidun)
  • Stars – the former union between Syria and Egypt.

The official flag is associated with the parties loyal to the current government. It motivated the Syrian opposition to readopt the independence flag from 1932. You can see their flag in parts of the country under their control.

Below is the flag used by the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces. Known as “the symbol of Syria’s uprising,” this flag is based on the Independence Flag from 1932.

Final Words

Dr. Sheldon Cooper from the TV show “Big Bang Theory” is a famous flag lover. He could make several episodes of his Fun with Flags show by using Syria’s symbols.

The country’s rich history enabled it to be rich in flags, too. Thank you to The Flag Makers for info on the flags of Syria.

Only A True Insomniac Would Understand The Beauty Of Sleeplessness

How does it feel like sleeping properly at 10 P.M. and waking up sharp at 5 A.M.? This is a thing not known to owls, RJ’s, police inspectors, lovelorn, late night train driver, late night flight pilots, and of course insomniacs. Some people are insomniac because they love the night more creative time of their day and some wake up because they have work or studies, while some sleep all the day and that’s why cannot find sleep in lap of night.

5% Indians suffer from sleep related problems and talking of the capital city, at least 70% people suffer from sleeping disorders. The reasons as cited above may be physical or psychological but there is some beauty in this phase also. I mean those are ailing and complaining with this insomnia thing won’t understand that but those like me who enjoy this orderly disorder really have their best time when the whole world sleeps peacefully.

There are some beautiful advantages of being an insomniac and here are they:

  • Being the insomniac in the building, you know all the joints where you can get midnight cake delivery in Delhi/Gurgaon/Noida, or anywhere you are! People would call you when they have to surprise someone at midnight or when they are hungry. You even know which shanty bistro serves the yummiest Maggi at 3 A.M.
  • As the whole world is sleeping in peace, you have no one to disturb your thought process and you come up with some lovely poems that garners appreciation from people in daylight. The creative process that brings out the stories, poems, sketches at night feeds people’s soul in the morning.
  • You are the best advisor to your friends going through career dilemma, marital issues, or coping with heart break. They always know that when they are extremely stressed out, they have you as the solution.
  • Most of the insomniacs who enjoy their process of sleeplessness are better cooks for sure. Because with full freedom, they love exploring the kitchen and experiment with various things ranging from bread jam to eggs to rice and vegetables. They also know the quickest way to cook anything which would fill the stomach and mind.
  • You are always the first witness to an earthquake that was trying to wreck your life for some 30 seconds. You can give the minutest details of the room, its things, dog’s reaction, etc. to all your friends and relatives the next day. Some of them get to know that through TV and also say that they have missed something important!

Many studies have revealed that those who fall asleep in the wee hours of morning waking the whole night are more artistic and creative by nature. So, there’s nothing bad being an insomniac till the time you can culture it.

Should The League of Legends Bring Back The Dominion Map?

It’s been several months since The Crystal Scar map was retired. To tell you honestly guys, Dominion was my favorite game mode before in League of Legends than the Classic and ARAM game. It is a fast-paced game that you just need to capture at least three towers out of five. To maintain it, you have to defend it at all costs. There’s a custom spell called Garrison which enables to heal or defend the tower you captured in case someone invades it.

When you’re leading, the Nexus points of the enemy drops continuously based on the number of towers captured by your team. When it reaches zero, it’s GAME OVER for them, and your team wins.

However, League of Legends has continued to rise with its brand new features and game modes that are more exciting than ever. But here’s one question that comes to my mind.

Will the League of Legends bring back the good old’ Dominion game?

The answer still relies on them. It’s really up to the admins if they’re interested in letting the Dominion come out of retirement or not. But for the recent custom games I’ve been playing lately, could this be a sign for a comeback?

From time to time, League of Legends has been experimenting custom games recently. But one thing that I’m intrigued by is the return of the Crystal Scar map. However, these custom games are only available for a limited time as part of their experiment in the upcoming months. There are a couple of games recently that Crystal Scar map is useful all along, and here are they.

Ascension

The first custom game that I’ve encountered is no other than the Ascension. I was the guy who tries something new aside from playing Normal and Ranked games in the Summoner’s Rift. When I checked that this is a Crystal Scar map, I was so excited about it because it reminds me of the good old’ Dominion.

The map was fully customized based on the Shurima desert theme. The place was like a wilderness, and the sandstorm is around. In other words, you can’t see the map clearly aside from hiding in the bush. The only visible areas out there are the three portals, three relics and the center part where the “Giant Xerath” stands.

Here’s the fun part….

Once you’re the last hitter to kill the Giant Xerath, you’ll be transformed into your “Giant” self and be given additional stats until you die. The difference between the original Dominion and the Ascension mode is that you can’t go home and heal yourself. You should kill first to go back to base.

It is indeed a fun game for me, and it only lasts for days. But still, the first Dominion is the best!
Definitely Not Dominion

This is another “Dominion” kind of games that’s definitely not it. To be honest with you guys, this game is much closer to the original one. You know why? Instead of five towers to be captured, and there are only three. The two towers below are the so-called “Guardian Towers” like the Summoner’s Rift. Once an enemy approaches your bottom tower, it’ll deal damage to them. I was playing like almost 20 games of this mode. Like the Classic Dominion and Ascension, it only lasts between 15 to 25 minutes. There’s one game I remember that I finished in just under 9 minutes….and I terribly lost due to quitters.

Here’s the strange part of this game mode

In each of team’s bottom tower, there are opposing relics. For you to capture the relic, you should go to your enemy’s side and capture it. Since it has a map visibility, your enemies could easily spot you for the ambush. On the other hand, your enemy could be ambushing your relic as well. Every time you capture a relic, there will be a five-point deduction to your enemy team’s Nexus. Just like the classic Dominion and Ascension, you just need to maintain at least two of the three towers to reduce the points of your enemy Nexus continuously until it reaches zero.

Another unique feature of this custom game is the center part of the map. In the original Dominion map, this is where the relics are in place. But on this custom map alone, there’s a huge circle which is similar to The Twisted Treeline. Once you step into the big ring, it’s like clockwork until it reaches the end point where you’ll be getting additional buffs for the entire team in a limited time.

Maybe this is Definitely Not Dominion, but I loved this one. It reminded me of the good old days a bit, but the classic Dominion still rocks!

Oh…and one more thing!

This is somewhat an advice to all League of Legends fans out there. To experience a total gaming experience into the next level, make sure you have the best gaming motherboard on the market today. Aside from that, make sure that your computer unit or laptop was equipped with a licensed, reliable antivirus and regular maintenance for at least once a week to avoid slowing down in playing games. This is where you’ll be having a high-quality gaming experience, especially with League of Legends. If you already have one, congratulations!

Final thoughts

For me, I think this was a sign of hope that the classic Dominion will possibly return. But once again, it’s up to the admins of the Summoner’s Rift to decide if they’ll be resurrecting this game mode or not. I would appreciate if at least they can include it on the custom game mode than the normal mode. But I understand that most of the players today aren’t really playing this game mode, which possibly results for the admins to retire this map once and for all…..until the random custom games have come out like the Ascension and Definitely Not Dominion.

At least…..I’m just one of the few players around the world who have the Dominion icon as a remembrance, and there is no chance of getting this one if I have the intention of using smurf accounts. I missed those days, though. Can someone please bring this game mode back?

How to Get The Best Bridesmaid Gowns On Your Big Day?

Have you started preparing for your D-day and looking for various bridal dresses that would complement with your personality? Then, you need to find the best bridesmaid dresses websites where you can find a wide variety of designs, styles, and coloured bridal dresses under one roof, and also, at an incredibly affordable price.

Undeniably, wedding is the most important occasion in everyone’s life and they want to buy and look the best on that particular day. In fact, no bridesmaid will compromise on the beauty and look of the dress along with the bride, since these are the people who stand alongside of the bride to share laughter, history and lots of smiles. They want the dress to be perfect by filling with embellishment and want to garner the attention of every guest towards them. However, it is the sheer responsibility of the bridesmaid to pick the dress that easily slips in their body and skin color to flatten everyone. Though, it is really a daunting task to pick bridesmaid dresses, but it is actually a fun.

Bridesmaid Gowns

The bridesmaids who walk alongside of the bride down the aisle should also look beautiful and this is all possible by picking a right dress for them. It is important for a bride to take the same special care for picking the bridesmaid dressesas they took to pick their wedding dress for their special day. No bride wants to defame themselves by making their bridesmaid wear a lousy dress.

Therefore, here are a few factors one has to consider while picking bridesmaid dresses:

Consider the wedding theme: You need to check whether the wedding is vintage, countryside, romantic or rustic chic wedding. In case, if the wedding has a theme, it is better for you to pick the dress of the bridesmaid that best complements with your theme. Today, many bridesmaids are wearing the dresses that are exactly contrast to each other. However, if you are someone who want to follow the same trend, then you need to be careful while picking the dresses that is élan and chic at the wedding besides giving a unified style.

Consider the budget: Wedding is one of the most important occasions of one’s lives but this is also one of those occasion when people tend to spend unnecessarily. While buying the beautiful and gorgeous looking gown, make sure you keep your budget in mind. But, this doesn’t mean that you have to pick the boring, cheap and outdated clothes for the bridesmaid. There are many online stores and clothing stores where you can get the wide range of bridesmaid dresses at affordable clothes. So, instead of jumping to the expensive malls or stores, rather find these affordable yet fashionable clothes stores.

Also, make sure you have enough colour option for the girls to pick the gown. This actually is a feasible option which gives the girls ample freedom to choose their own dress as per their style (Strapless, halter, one shoulder, etc.). Moreover, this helps them to wear the same gown for the other parties too.

Bridesmaid

Keep body shape in mind: It is an admirable fact that, no two women have the same body type in your group. So, it is not possible for you to pick a gown of a particular type for all the girls, since this may not suit to all of them. So, when you are planning to buy bridesmaid dresses, you need to take the body shape of each girl in your wedding group into consideration to pick the dress and complementary accessories that look beautiful on them. In fact, the dress you pick should make the guests to turn off their eyes from its beauty. More importantly, you need to provide options for the bridesmaid that suits their body type such as necklines, skirt lengths, strapless, and so on. Many bridesmaids are compelled to wear a dress that is not flattering to their body shape. So, make sure, you get the enough variety so that they can choose according to their wish and look their best.
