Drones

image-gallery-01._V367570019_.jpg%22Everyone is talking about drones! Amazon wants to use drones for 30-minute delivery service, right to your front porch; Netflix wants to use drones for a same-day movie delivery service; and Photographers now offer drones at weddings, to capture those hard-to-get shots. It’s probably not to hard to even imagine drones at sporting events!

So, what exactly is a drone? “Drone” as a category refers to any unmanned, remotely piloted flying craft, ranging from something as small as a radio-controlled toy helicopter to the 32,000-pound, $104 million Global Hawk. If it flies and it’s controlled by a pilot on the ground, it fits under the everyday-language definition of drone. (Popular Science)

While the jury is still out on the legalities of drones and privacy, keep in mind: somebody is always watching! Furthermore, all this talk about transporting packages via air makes me think of the Jetsons…. How far are we really away from transporting ourselves?! I’m not talking about Delta or Southwest; rather, companies like Ford and GM selling drones as “personal transportation devices”. Stay tuned!

Wedding 101

101A wedding is not just a day, it’s an EXPERIENCE! With that in mind, there are a few critical things you need to know.

  1. This is your day! Throw out all the rules and traditions and focus on what’s important to you and your fiance.
  2. Set a realistic budget and stick to it! You can spend $10,000 or $1,000 and still make your wedding fabulous.

  3. Prioritize. Unless you have unlimited funds, this is important. Would you rather have gold chairs or offer beer and wine? An amazingly fabulous dress or decked out invitations. Your Day, Your Priorities, Your Way!

  4. Personalize. Everything! For yourself, your future hubby, bridesmaids! Get people involved in the experience and keep their attention. Those are the things you and your guests will remember!

  5. Guest list:  # 1 expense, #1 drama. Invite those people who are nearest and dearest to your heart. Use this guide and move on.

  6. Everything you need or could possibly learn about this process is on the web. Do not buy a cheesy wedding book. Whatever you need is only a simple search away

  7. Hire an amazing photographer. Flowers will die, programs will be tossed. Your pictures are the only thing that will last. Don’t skimp on this or you will regret it.

  8. Be considerate. To your guests by picking a convenient and lively location, to your bridesmaids by not selecting a costume dress and to your vendors by giving them the information they need in advance. Yes, this is your day, but don’t be a Bridezilla.
