How do you meet the partner for you? Follow these dating tips to sharpen your aim to find your love match in this contributed post.
We don’t often think about it or even acknowledge it because it's just normal. We don’t want to limit our choice of partner so we leave the door open to many possibilities. We go out there onto the dating scene, hoping to find someone that we can be with for the rest of our lives. But stop, don’t you think that’s casting the net our rather wide? You’re just ‘hoping’ to meet someone that you can not only like, but love? Very rarely do relationships last where you are making a choice to cope with someone that you know, deep down you don’t like. Alas, many of us have fickle hearts and we believe or hope that we can change the person more into being like us in the future. That is ridiculous, you can’t change a tiger’s stripes. We need to accept people for who they are and not try to change them just to suit us and our feelings. So how on earth do you find someone that you can love? Well, for a start you should sharpen your aim.

Networking circles from work
That old saying of, ‘if you’re single, go ahead and mingle’ is true of many public social gatherings. We always network at work, we need to. Meeting new people from our line of work and talking about things that mean a lot to us professionally is a great way to meet a potential lover. In fact, that’s how most relationships start off. You’re at work and suddenly someone who you considered a colleague or even as part of another company, make your heart race every time you see them. Well, rather than going out on the dating scene, how about start looking for someone who does the same thing as you for a living? You’ll have much more in common immediately and lots to talk about on the first date. The tension is also less because you know what they’re talking about and you can engage with them on a deeper level.
Take an interest seriously
Those that take their hobby seriously, will end up having to mingle with new people eventually. Especially in sports, if you take it seriously enough you’ll end up wanting better equipment and a better place to play that sport. Take archery for example. If you take it seriously enough, you’ll want to join a club. At this club there will be people who have the exact same interest and have the same issues of improvement and equipment as you do. You’ll end up meeting someone that you would like and want to become more than just friends with. However the tension is already broke because you have been around each other a lot and focus on a joint or shared goal in the sport you play. There are dating websites that are specific in their outreach such as Muslim Dating. Such tools are great for finding people that are into the same thing as you and can narrow down what kind of interests you may have in common.
Instead of aiming broadly at a wild forest full of different people, why not just cut to the chase? Look for a potential partner in interests and professions that you yourself have love or like of.
Wedding planning can be a very stressful event. Read this contributed post to learn the 3 signs of a successfully planned wedding.
Whether you are planning a wedding on behalf of someone else, or you are doing it for your own big day, you want to be sure that you are doing as well as possible. That much is clear, but what is often less clear is what you actually need to do to make sure that this happens, and that is something that can be surprisingly not as cut and dry as you might want it to be. As it happens, there are a number of signs which show that it is a successful wedding, and it is worth taking a look at some of these to make sure that you are sure that you have done the job right. In this post, we’ll look at just three of the clearest signs that you have done well and that the wedding has been a true success.
The Happy Couple Are - Well, Happy
First of all, the most important indicator which you should be on the lookout for is that the happy couple as actually happy. You can absolutely tell if there's anything wrong or if they don't feel that it has gone as t plan as it could have, and this is not something you want to see when you are in charge of the wedding day itself. If it is your wedding day, you will know from how you feel whether or not you have done well, so that is an easy indicator in itself. But if it’s someone else’ day, you can be sure that you are going to want to pay attention to what they look like, and whether they are happy with what has happened. If they are, you don’t need to worry about the rest.
Everyone Looks Their Best
A huge part of organizing any wedding day is ensuring that everyone looks as good as possible, and that i something that you can also use as an indicator that everything is going well. As long as you are happy with how the bride and groom look in particular you will find that it makes for a much more successful day on the whole, so this is definitely one of the main things to be on the lookout for. You might be glad you went to John Henric for that suit, or wherever you might have gone for the dress, as it is a sure sign that the day itself has gone as well as possible. If everyone looks their best, they are more likely to be truly happy with the day as well.
The People Are Merry
Finally, let’s not forget that a wedding is a party. As such, people should be happy and merry, and if they are not you know that something has gone wrong somewhere. But as long as people are happy enough, and dancing and so on, you know that the day has gone as well as you could hope. This is definitely something to look out for, and if you look around and you don’t see it, perhaps it’s time to get the party started yourself.
5 tips to help you choose your wedding day colour scheme are explored in this contributed post.
Choosing the colour scheme for your wedding day is perhaps one of the most challenging things we can do when it comes to making our wedding the most special day in the world. It is important that you never rush the process of making a wedding colour scheme because it can be a choice which changes the whole tide of the wedding.
What are you favourite colours?
The first thing you will want to think about when choosing a colour scheme for the wedding is what your favourite colours are. Everyone wants to be able to choose their favourite colours for their wedding because it makes the process of choosing things like flowers and table setting much more fun. See what both of your favourite colours are and then you can move onto the next question: so they go well together?
Use current trends
If you really don’t mind that much what colours are used for your wedding and you seen to be having no luck finding the inspiration for it, a good idea would be to look at a guide to wedding trends. Wedding trends change just as fashion changes and they evolve over time to fit with what people want. Take a look at a wedding fair and some wedding trends to see if there is anything which you like the look or sound of.
Think of the seasons
Seasons can play a big part in colour schemes for weddings because certain colours seem to pop up at different times of the year. Depending on the season you are celebrating in, you could expect some of the following colours:
Spring- pastel colours, pink, mint, white
Summer- pastels, bright blue, pink, yellow, green
Autumn- red, orange, yellow, browns and golds
Winter- red, white, blue, silver, green
Have a think about what kind of colours you enjoy and see if you can fit them in with the season you are planning the wedding for.
Pick a theme
When planning a wedding, choosing to have a theme for the affair can make life so much easier when it comes to choosing colours and styles. For example if you were to choose a forest theme for your wedding you would have colours such as green, brown, red, white and orange. Finding the right theme for your wedding needs to be thought out properly because it will set the tone for the whole day.
Use paint samples
When you come to choose your colour schemes for your wedding day you will find that the paint sample papers at the hardware store will become your new best friends. Head over and pick out a few different sheets which you like the look of and spend some time putting them together and having a look at some of the colours you can place together. Think about finding flower arrangements which fit the colours you have chosen to see how well each colour blends with the next for stunning composition. This will make a massive difference and allow you to choose the right colours for the wedding
Who is John?
In John's Own Words
As you know, Paul McCartney is playing in my city Montreal on Sept. 20. I made this video below asking him to make my biggest dream come true that night. It's been on radio, newspapers and TV. I've reached out to literally everyone I know in his inner circles. For all I know he has seen it and may contact me in the next day or 2. But with only days left I just want to make sure he sees it and let him decide.
So PLEASE, share this, tag this, send the link to every single Beatles fan you know, and to every Beatles fan club online and offline you know.
We need to keep sharing this UNTIL Sir Paul McCartney sees it before it is too late!
Sir Paul McCartney will be playing in Montreal on September 20th.

A beautiful backyard can be a memorable wedding venue if you plan well. Read these useful tips in this contributed post to make your backyard wedding celebration perfect.
If you’ve seen the cost of hiring a wedding venue, you’ll likely have wondered if it’s possible to save the fee and instead host the wedding party in your own yard. Well, there’s good news: you can! But it’s not as simple as just inviting everyone around. You should treat this as serious as you would a party at another venue, and that means planning just as many - in fact, more - details so that everything’s just right. Below, we take a look at a few useful tips which will make your backyard wedding celebration perfect (and save you a lot of money in the process).
An Immaculate Yard
If you’re not a keen gardener, then do not host your wedding in your yard. We repeat: do not host your wedding in your yard! If you’re going to invite your friends and family to celebrate your love on your property, then the yard has to be inspiring. Making sure the grass is looking trim and healthy is just a starting point. You’ll also want to have colorful flower displays dotted around. Actually, it might be the case that this decision presents you with the opportunity to completely re-landscape your yard. Take it!
Not The Dining Table and Chairs
You’re saving money on the cost of hiring a venue. Don’t go overboard with the cost-saving measures. This is not a chance to show off your regular dining table, chairs, and cutlery your guests. Instead, work with a table hire company to ensure you’re getting table and chairs that are right for your function. It won’t just look better; it’s also practical. You might have enough tables for everyone, but are they all the same size and the right shape? It’s unlikely. You also want to invest in a fancy cutlery set, too - there’ll also be a great souvenir of your special day.
Trim The Guestlist
Wedding venues are experienced at hosting parties. They can tell you straight away how many people their place can comfortably accommodate. With your yard, you have no idea. You can make a rough estimate of how many people it can fit, but it’s hard to judge how many it can fit COMFORTABLY. You want people to have space to mingle and dance, and this will be difficult if they’re standing shoulder to shoulder with other people. If you think you might go overboard with the invites, do your best to keep the list trim.
Next Door Neighbors
The issue with having the party at your home might have nothing to do with you or your guests: it’ll be your neighbors. If you’re planning to party late into the night, they might not like being kept awake, even if it is at a wedding. As such, it’s imperative that you talk with the people who live around you before you decide to host the wedding on your property. If you have the space, then look at inviting them too. They’re not going to complain about the noise if they’re involved in the party!
Finding the one person for you feels amazing! If you are not sure, consider these signs in this contributed post that they are the one for you.
We all hope for the feeling of knowing for sure that the person we’re dating is the one. Not all relationships get to this point, but the ones that do can feel amazing. ‘The one’ also means different things to different people. It might mean something different at age 25 than it does at 30. It might not come to you until you reflect on the person you’re with through and through. Of course, thinking someone is the one may not be returned to you, so we’re often hesitant to apply that label until we’re absolutely sure.
Just like any matter of faith, instinct will often lead you to the right answer. There is no shame in falling in love with someone multiple times during your relationship, in fact this shows that life with this person could be truly novel! It may not be long before you’re comparing metal or silicone wedding rings, and walking over the threshold of your home as newlyweds. Until then, consider these signs they are the one for you:
If you can trust your partner, you have one of the vital pillars of a strong relationship already constructed. Without this, nothing else functions. You need to trust your partner to be true to you, to keep you aware, and to help you become your best self. In return, you must do the exact same for them. However, trust is not only found in the ways we imagine. For example, trusting a partner could be knowing they can speak to you authentically, that they will not filter their words around you. This could mean telling you when you’re acting out of line, or when they’re worried about you. Just as you expect a close friend to be candid with you, a lover will find a manner to build you up from your flaws, and to help you see them yourself rather than constantly remind you of them. If you trust in your partner 100%, perhaps more than you do yourself, they might just be ‘the one’ material.
If you can trust them to be responsible with their affairs, and to stand on their own two feet, and to put as much into the relationship as you do, and to keep building a life together with that as their main priority, then it could be that ‘the one’ is within your grasp. We often idealize love with spontanaeity, and for good reason. But sometimes, a little responsibility can help ease us, and know that this is the person we wish to build our life with.
While deep, burning and passionate love can be sustained for long periods of time, it does take work to do. What matters is that this person feels fresh whenever you see them, even after years. If you still get butterflies, if you still wish to impress one anohter with surprises, or if you find yourself trying to be the best you can for the sake of both of you and you’re sure they’re doing the same, you may have just found the one,
With these mature and sensible yet loving tips, you may identify the one sooner rather than later.
Last minute weddings can work! Here are some great tips in this contributed post to help you perfect your last minute wedding.

Who says you need to have a few months between getting engaged and then getting married? Sure, most people tend to spend a good year or so organizing their special day before they do head to the church, but there is no need to plan so much if you don’t want to. In fact, there are now lots of couples who like the idea of last-minute weddings so that the stress of organizing such a big event isn’t dragged on for too long. Think this sounds like something you’d prefer to do? If so, here are some great tips that can help you perfect your last-minute wedding.
Sort Out The Dress First
One of the first things you need to do is find your wedding dress. Most dress companies will need a couple of weeks at least to make alterations so your choice of dress fits you perfectly on the day. So, it’s a good idea to source a dress before anything else. That way, you know that it will be all ready to go on your wedding day.
Forget Save The Date Cards
Many people often send out save the date cards at least six months before their big day. These aren’t official invites, and they are just sent out so that guests don’t double book themselves on the wedding day. The invitations are often sent out about two months beforehand. However, as you don’t have this much time, it’s a good idea to forgo the save the date cards, and simply send some wedding invitations instead.
Still Look At Different Venues
Even though you might not have much time, it’s still worth trying to squeeze in viewing a couple of different venues. This will give you an idea of the style of venue you want, such as a church, event hall, or stately home, and what you will be able to get for your budget. It will also give you a good idea of just how big your chosen venue is and how many guests you will be able to invite.
Bake The Cake
There probably won’t be time for a bakery to take an order for your wedding cake and bake it for the wedding. But that doesn’t mean that you have to go without a cake. Instead, you just need to bake one yourself. You might even have quite a skilled friend or relative who would be willing to bake a cake for you, so it’s worth asking around.
Get Catering From A Local Restaurant
Similarly, there might not be time to book a catering company. Thankfully, many restaurants can cater large events at short notice, so it’s a good idea to see which restaurants and eateries in your local area might be able to help you out. Most will be able to supply large platters that can create a delicious buffet.
As you can see, your last-minute wedding doesn’t have to be rushed. There are lots of ways it can be just like what you have always dreamed of!
