Lilian’s Tips To Save on Wedding

Great Wedding Tips From The Experts : What Every Bride Can Learn from the Most Successful Wedding PlannersTOP 10 TIPS TO SAVE ON YOUR WEDDING
By Lilian

Tip 1: Schedule your wedding “off-season.”

Nearly 70% of all weddings take place between May and October of each year. You will probably find yourself able to get better deals on virtually every wedding service if you schedule your wedding in one of the “off season” months. Also avoid late November through New Year’s, when hotels, caterers and bands are likely to be busy with holiday parties.

What is the best time to set your wedding?

I would suggest setting the date for sometime between October and mid November and between January and May (avoiding Valentine’s Day, when the flower prices peak). On setting up your wedding date off-peak, you will find yourself in a fantastic bargaining position and you will be able to get deals with virtually every vendor!

Tip 2: Cut down on your food and drinks bill

The easiest way to cut down on your food and drinks bill is to cut down on your guest list.

It may be painful, but the simple truth is that there is no quicker, easier way to control your budget than by limiting the size of the event. Again, your single biggest cost will be reception food and alcohol, so you can reduce that expenditure by paring down the number of mouths.

Remember: Single guests who are not in a serious relationship can be invited solo. Also you may invite parents only; and you need not invite anyone who you have not been in contact with in the last five years, even if they invited you to their wedding.

Tip 3: Buy a non-bridal gown

Bridal gowns aren’t the only white dresses in the world. It may be that the perfect wedding dress for you is not found in a bridal salon, but among the women’s evening wear section of a department store (try the sale rack!). Especially during the last several seasons, while elegant, understated gowns have been in style, the line between bridal wear and formalwear has blurred. You might even find that the perfect gown for you is a more-affordable bridesmaid’s style, done in white or ivory.

Tip 4: Negotiate!

When buying anything marked “wedding” it always has a premium attached to it! So please negotiate! I suggest you start at half price and then work upwards.

Tip 5: Have your ceremony and reception in the same location

There will be no need for limos to take you to the second location. Many houses of worship have halls that are equipped to handle wedding receptions at reasonable fees, especially if you are a member.

Likewise, if you are having a civil ceremony, many venues have got a hall, where you could hold the reception. By doing that, you will not need to buy arrival drinks, as this is often bought for people while they are waiting for everyone to arrive.

Tip 6: Selecting your photographer

Instead of selecting a wedding photographer, you will be able to make a saving if you choose an amateur photographer who is about to go professional and requires experience. Obviously, make sure you look at his/her prior work before making your selection. Ask friends and family and you may be surprised who they know. Going to photography colleges may be a good starting point.

Obviously, you understand that by doing this, you will be taking a slight risk so if you are not prepared to do that, I will suggest you take a wedding photographer, and agree for him to stay for half of the day instead of the full day. This way, you don’t have to spend as much as if he stayed for the whole day!

Tip 7: Share the costs of the Church flowers

If you’re getting married in church, sometimes you can arrange with other couples getting married on the same day to share the cost of decorating the church. Ask the church who normally supplies their flowers – it’s usually someone local who does it for a hobby and may charge only a small fee to do your flowers. Also getting married a day or two after a big religious event usually ensures the church is well decorated.

Tip 8: Honeymoon

Ask for “honeymoon vouchers” on your wedding list – some travel firms now offer these. This way, people will be contributing to your honeymoon costs.

Tip 9: Hire the groom’s attire

No need to buy the attire, you can rent the groom’s attire between £60 and £90. If you decide to buy it, it would cost you about £200 or more, which the groom will probably not wear again.

Tip 10: Use a venue that doesn’t charge a hiring fee

For example, you could choose your local pub or favourite restaurant. This will save you on the hiring fee, and the cost per head would be cheaper than in a hotel.

Open A Business On The Moon

Celestron NexStar 8i SE Special Edition Computerized TelescopeIs it possible to make money on the moon? This question raised on my head after knowing that one of the aims of space exploration is to make money on the moon:

Making money on the moon is an essential part of the U.S. plan for space exploration, NASA officials said on Friday after a four-day strategy workshop with international space officials and scientists. (link)

I wonder what kind of business they could established on a humanless moon and earn money from them.

Maybe they will launch a Lunar Walk Resort and then transport those tourist who want to experience Lunar Walking. Spaceships will be going in and out the earth carrying those adventurists who want to stroll around the circumference of the moon or want dive the deep craters of the moon

They might build a swimming pool there. Water will be placed on a wide pool with artificial wave machine on it. Of course the water supply will be coming from the earth by transporting the increasing level of sea water to the moon.

Well, let’s plan about it too.

The Church with Vicar of Christ

Vicars of Christ: A History of the PopesQuestion: How could it be that the Roman Catholic Church is not the true Church of Christ when in fact it is the only church wherein Christ placed His own Vicar, the Pope?


I know that you know that Christ is still alive and is seated on the right hand of God:

1Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. (Colosians 3:1, NIV)

He is not disabled nor dead so that He will place a Pope to the Church as His vicar or substitute. We couldn’t even find the term “Vicar of Christ” in the Bible.

Christ being the head of the Church:

18And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. (Colosians 1:18, NIV)

don’t need any vicar, substitute nor replacement that will act in place as of that of Christ because Christ continues forever:

24 But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. (Hebrews 7:24, NKJV)

If He was the head of the Church yesterday, then He is the same today and will be the same forever:

8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8, NKJV)

Therefore, the teaching that the Pope is the Vicar of Christ is another proof that the Roman Catholic Church is not the Church of Christ.

Church Changed Its Name

King James Version/Amplified Parallel Bible, Large Print (King James Version)Question: Did you ever know that the Roman Catholic Church is the Church of Christ? It was just recently made official through the Church council that the name of the Church of Christ will be “Roman Catholic Apostolic Church”.


To let you know, the true Church of Christ didn’t changed its name.

It was already written on the Holy Scriptures that the church founded by Christ is the Church of Christ:

16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you. (Romans 16:16, NKJV …see also The Name of the Church)

No one gave this name but God Himself, and there’s salvation on this name:

let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole.

Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:10,12, NKJV)

Members of the Church of Christ didn’t go beyond on what is written:

6Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, “Do not go beyond what is written.” Then you will not take pride in one man over against another. (I Corinthians 4:6, NIV)

Because it’s God’s will not to add nor subtract on what is written.

18I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. (Revelation 22:18-19, NIV)

Saying that “the name of the Church changed” is again another proof that the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church is not the true Church of Christ.

Good News To Blind – Compound Eyes

A Dazzle Of Dragonflies (Peter N. Nevraumont Books (Texas A&m University Press))I think, it can be considered good news to the blinds who wanted to witness how good and beautiful is the nature.

Maybe it will be better if you’ll apply to acquire a compound eyes that scientists invented so that man could see in all directions simultaneously instead of having eyes with single len and can only see a single direction at a time.

What’s this compound eyes anyway? Well. It is a synthetic device,

Luke Lee, professor of bioengineering and leader of a research team he calls the Bio-Poets, is reporting today that his synthetic devices made of complex plastic materials can “see” in all directions simultaneously, and could well find uses in fields as varied as medicine, 3-D cameras and even espionage. (LINK)

which was designed based on the structure of the eyes of dragonfly:

The bulbous compound eyes of many insects contain thousands of individual lenses, each of which sees in a single direction, but whose images are melded into a single, wide-angle view that allows the insect to survey its entire neighborhood at once. (LINK)

It is composed of 8,370 lenses in about the size of a pinhead.

The compound eyes he and his colleagues have developed consists of exactly 8,370 individual lenses, each no larger than a pinpoint, and all clustered like a honeycomb in a single hemisphere about the size of a pinhead — all in all, a true compound eye working on the same principle as the eye of a fly or a bumblebee.(LINK)

If you’ll get this kind of eyes, think how lucky you are.

The Church Built On Peter

Peter, Paul, and Mary Magdalene : The Followers of Jesus in History and Legend Question: Is it not written on the Bible that Christ built the Church on Peter? And it’s the Catholic Church.


To let you know, it was not written on the Bible that the true Church founded by Christ was built on Peter

In Matthew 16:18, the true Church founded by Christ was built on Christ Himself as he said “and on this rock I will build My Church”. The rock mentioned here is not Peter but Christ Himself.

18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:18, NKJV)

To understand it better, Apostle Paul clairly stated on his letter to the Colossians that the Church was built up in Christ.

Notice on the quoted verse below, the term “YOU” refers to the Church because this letter of Apostle Paul is for the Church of Christ in Colosse:

6So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, 7rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. (Colossians 2:6-7, NIV)

And the term “HIM” in above quoted verse refers to Christ because Christ is the Chief Corner stone:

20built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. (Ephesians 2:20)

The true Apostle Peter is part of the Church that was built in Christ the Chief Corner Stone.

If the Catholic Church is built in Peter, then it is one of the proofs that the Roman Catholic Church is not really the Church founded by Christ. Remember the true Church of Christ is built in Christ not in Peter.

Water Proof Laptop

Sony VAIO VGN-FS630/W 15.4I’m wondering if I can find a laptop that can be used outdoor even if raining, or I can bring it while sailing pumpboat and seawater will soak it without damaging the system.

For sure, there will be a laptop that will not be damaged when spilled by water. It will be released by the Matsushita Electric which is famous for its Panasonic Computer:

You’ll be able to spill water on a new laptop from Matsushita Electric without having to fret about ruining your computer. (LINK)

However, this laptop will be capable to avoid damage with the small amount spilled liquid only because it is designed for light water spill only:

The new Let’s Note CF-Y5 features a waterproof sheet and special drainage system that protects the hard drive and circuit board from light water damage, Matsushita said in a statement. (LINK)

Anyway, it’s already fine.

Knowledge for Quality Adsense

Make Easy Money with Google : Using the AdSense Advertising ProgramFalco85 post at Digital Point forums made me realized that each of the Adsense Publishers have different useful experiences to better optimized their blogs and sites for Adsense.

Falco85 found out that creating a site that will receive millions of hits and spending money for ebooks failed to send him dollars from Adsense.

When I started my first aim was to make money, receive tons of visits by having millions of pages displayed, and reasoning like “what if I had 1 click on every page, say on the 10% of millions of pages, whatever the content is.. I would be rich!”. This scheme was not working, my sites that I did in this way never worked and it was a failure.

The second approach was based on the philosophy “you won’t make money if you won’t spend money”. So I started looking for software, tutorials, ebooks, whatever it could be sold on the net. And you know what? It was another failure. 99% of this stuff is pure crap, written by people like you and me that is ripping you off money to tell you things that you can learn and discover in the same way, just doing your homework and fair research. I am sure that there are valuable tools around there to make great money with Adsense, but I am not aware about them. (LINK)

But when he made a site with quality content, he’s now starting to receive check from his Adsense earning.

However, if we’ll think and study the three steps he did, I would say that they’re all important in optimizing sites or blogs for Adsense. If your site or blog have millions of hits per day and contains quality contents, then for sure, you’ll be receiving hundred of thousands daily.

But of course the basic of it is the knowledge in what ever you do for your site. You can’t post quality content if you don’t know how to create quality content. You can’t receive hits if you don’t know how to optimize your blog or site for the search engine or do some tricks for people to find your blog.

Marriage is a wonderful milestone in your life and it is important to start this new stage in your life in a good financial state.

You have just gotten engaged; and you are now preparing for one of the most important days of your life!

If you are in a situation like I was when I started planning my wedding; the questions on my mind were:

* “How do I find £15000 or more for the wedding?”

* “Could I have a fantastic wedding for £5000 or less?”

* “How do we stick to our budget?”

* “Where do I start? There is so much to do!”

You will find below, 10 easy steps to organising your wedding.

1.Understand the costs of the average wedding, and how to avoid overspending on your wedding. By understanding the most costly items on your weddings list, your attention would be focused on which items create the best savings opportunities

2.Agree on your desired type of wedding with hubby (to be)

3.Identify source of funds. You will need to identify how you are going to fund your wedding (i.e. with help from parents, or by using your savings etc…).

4. Agree on your budget. Once you have ensured that you have the funds available, you will need to decide on your wedding budget and commit to sticking to it.

5. Set the wedding date. Usually people would set the date before working out how they will get the money to pay for the wedding, but I would advise to first work out your finances and then set your wedding date.

6. Go through a list of all the wedding items and decide on which ones you will definitely have to purchase, and the ones you will not need to buy or will simply not need (for example, you may choose not to have arrival drinks).

7. Create a checklist or to do list.

8. Purchase items and negotiate on all of them.

9. Plan the wedding day itself

10. Arrange for post-wedding activities (i.e. change of name)

Roman Catholic Church, the true Church?

The New Catholic Encyclopedia, Second Edition (15 Vol. Set)Question: Is it not recorded in different History books and Encyclopedia that the Roman Catholic Church is the true Church founded by Christ?


It might be true that what was recorded on books or encyclopedia other than the Bible is that the Roman Catholic Church is the true church founded by Christ. But we must not forget that the Bible is the word of God and can be trusted than books written by different authors who are not inspired by God.

There will be no problem if what was recorded on the Bible and other books about the church founded by Christ is the same. But if the Bible and other books, both have different declaration about the church, then we should choose one, and I will choose to believe the Holy Bible:

It was clear in Matthew 16:18 that the church founded by Christ is not the Church of Roman (Roman Church). Christ said, “I will build My Church”. He didn’t say, “I will build the Roman Church.

It is also clear that the Church founded by Christ is not the Catholic Church nor the Roman Catholic Church, because he didn’t say “I will build the Catholic Church” or “I will build the Roman Catholic Church” but he said, “I will build My Church”.

18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:18, NKJV)

And we should not forget that the members of the Church founded by Christ were not called “Catholics” but “Churches of Christ”.

5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house.

Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia[a] to Christ. 6 Greet Mary, who labored much for us. 7 Greet Andronicus and Junia, my countrymen and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.
8 Greet Amplias, my beloved in the Lord. 9 Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker in Christ, and Stachys, my beloved. 10 Greet Apelles, approved in Christ. Greet those who are of the household of Aristobulus. 11 Greet Herodion, my countryman. Greet those who are of the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord.

12 Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, who have labored in the Lord. Greet the beloved Persis, who labored much in the Lord. 13 Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. 14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren who are with them. 15 Greet Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them.

16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you. (Romans 16:5-16, NKJV)

Therefore, the true church founded by Christ is not the Roman Catholic Church but the Church of Christ.
