We received a phone call this week asking, “Do you have a Carnival supplies too?” Why, we wouldn’t be “All” Affairs if we didn’t!

We sent them directly to our Carnival page where they spent minutes choosing what they were interested in and let’s just say – “We’re happy they chose heaters too!”

Stay warm and have fun, North East!

How to Choose a Videographer

VIDEO: Video is probably one of the most misunderstood and undervalued aspects of wedding planning. It is the unique combination of a service (the videotaping) and a finished product (the edited DVD or tape) that has many people discounting the importance of a wedding video. The importance and value of a wedding day video should not be overlooked.

VALUE: A quality video is a worthwhile long-term investment. After all the planning, effort, and expense of a wedding, wouldn’t you want a documentation of the day? Too many times brides think of video as an afterthought, when the budget is spent, and are disappointed with a fuzzy and shaky video. There is no other wedding product that shows the sights of you in your dress, the dancing, and behind the scenes as well as a video, since unlike photography it includes sound.

TYPES: Nowadays the old stereotypes of bright lights, large cameras, large tripods, cheesy animations, and hokey music should be forgotten. Times have changed. Today’s top videographers have access to the same tools and technology as many feature filmmakers. A contemporary trend is toward shorter videos of 30-40 minutes rather than the typical two-hour tapes. Other options include additional copies or interactive versions on DVD, love stories about your relationship, and video presentations screened at the reception.

TALENT: The genre of a wedding video requires that the videographer become excellent at many tasks. Much more than owning a superior camera they must learn composition, exposure, and focus. They must carefully monitor audio tracks from multiple microphones and be a good storyteller during editing, making a concise and entertaining to watch video. When you compare videographers look at more than just the initial price. The sound should be clearly recorded and the video could be crisp, sharp, and colorful. There should be no excuses for sloppy camerawork or editing.

CHOOSING: There are so many factors to consider when choosing a videographer. Unfortunately, many couples do not know the plethora of choices in style AND price we enjoy in this market. Searching for a great videographer involves watching sample clips at their studio or some enable you to view videos online, which can make your decision easier. Make sure your videographer belongs to a professional association like the Wedding and Event Videographers Association (WEVA) to continually improve their craft.

PRICES: Since all videographers have access to digital cameras of a 3-chip design, which yields more vibrant colors and better resolution, the price has more to do with talent than with technology alone. Fees can range from $2,000 for a basic video to $6,000 or more for wonderful video documentary. Sought-after videographers book a year or more in advance.

In the end you and future generations will have fun watching and reminiscing with your wedding movies that today’s wedding videographers create.

Hosting a party? Here are some tips.

In AllAffairs Information,Hosting a party,Specials on February 28, 2011 by sathishisaac Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

There is no better way to celebrate the joyous occasions of life than with a party.  Planning and hosting a party might seem a daunting and overwhelming task but with a positive attitude and an array of party planning tips, you can make your party successful without being stressful.

Five W’s

The five W’s of who, what, when, where, and why are not only to be regarded as the basics in journalism but also form the foundation of hosting a successful party.  This goes a long way in planning for your party.  Sit down with a pen and paper and ask yourself the following questions and jot down the answers,

Why are you going to celebrate it?

Who will be your guests?

What will be the party like?

When is the party?

Where is the party?

Budget

As you come with step-by-step details that you need for the party, prepare a mental tally of the costs and go for a set budget; vow that you would not go beyond it.

Early bird catches the worm

After you reach a decision as to the why, who, what, when and where of the party, do not postpone things up until three days before the party.  Start the work at least two to three weeks in advance.  Decide who is going to cook, you or a caterer?  If you want caterers, book them well in advance.  Sit down with them and decide upon a good menu.  You might need chairs, tables, tents, coat racks, linens, etc; contact a party rental company like the Brooklyn, NY area All Affairs Chair and Rental long before the date of the party.

Relax while you get ready

Since professionals start working for you days ahead of the party, you can relax and concentrate on the finer aspects of hosting a party that need your personal touch.

A Vintage Bridal Shower Tea

In Specials on February 1, 2011 by sathishisaac Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Showering a bride-to-be with gifts and good wishes is a lovely tradition, and a fête that is uniquely hers makes the day memorable. While it’s easy—and appreciated—to purchase a gift from the registry, an unexpected set of exquisite, mismatched vintage teacups makes a great surprise for the guest of honor.

Here’s how it works:

●        In the invitation, ask each guest to bring one pretty vintage teacup to the shower. (The hostess may want to have a few additional teacups at the ready in case a guest forgets.)

●        Also encourage guests to wear any long, old-fashioned gloves they may have; it is a vintage tea party! Older family members will be delighted to dust a pair off, and younger attendees will enjoy playing dress-up. (The organizers may want to provide some at the shower for ladies to borrow and wear.)

●        Be sure to ask one guest, perhaps the hostess or the organizers, to gift the bride-to-be with a tea pot.

●        At the shower, set aside a small table or area for guests to drop off the teacup they brought, and then encourage everyone to use them! At the end of the party the bride has a pretty mismatched tea set to take home as a sweet memento of the day.

●        This sort of shower makes figuring out the favors easy! A tin of tea, a strainer and some honey (or any combination thereof) is great with the theme.

Note: Vintage tea cups and old-fashioned long gloves can be found at thrift stores, estate sales, church/synagogue or can come from one’s own collection—trés eco-friendly! It’s especially meaningful if family members have an heirloom teacup they’re willing to give.
