Croatia Outdoor Wedding Venues and Must Have

Summer Wedding Must-Have!

The summer season is coming around again this year, and it is a very popular time for weddings to be held. However, it can be tough to know what to have at your wedding so it matches the appropriate season! One of the main things you should consider putting into your wedding is the type of cake. Often times, the cake is not the most important feature until after the wedding is over and the reception has begun. Choosing a cake can be quite difficult because not only do you have to determine the looks of the cake, but you also have to determine what the guests will like more inside the cake. One of the best things to purchase during the summer for your wedding is a theme cake! Theme cakes always make great additions to weddings, and they can provide your whole party with a laugh depending on what theme you get. The most important part of the cake is the topper, having a funny topper such as a ball and chain on the groom can make the cake the center of the wedding. A cake is one of the things you should consider during the summer season!

Another important piece to making your summer wedding spectacular is the decorations you put into it. Once again going with a theme is a smart idea, and you can even have the participants in the wedding dress accordingly to the theme. For the theme, a popular theme is bright colors. Since it is summer, you will want to have the bridesmaids and the best man dress accordingly, and if you wedding will be held in a field with the sun brightly shining, a yellow colored dress would fit perfectly with the summer theme. Another must have for your summer wedding is the appropriate time of day. You want to schedule your wedding more towards the afternoon, rather than mid-day. This is important because you will have the sunset to enjoy as the wedding is occurring, and often times guests can get irritated if the sun is too bright and too hot. One of the main reasons people do not enjoy weddings is because they can be uncomfortable due to the weather, and scheduling your wedding during the appropriate time of day during the summer can make a huge difference and make your weddings one of the most spectacular in the summer season.

Another summer wedding must have is a proper reception. One of the main reasons people attend is because of the reception, this is where people get to talk to each other and meet new friends and have fun. A summer wedding must have is good entertainment, as if you have a nice band booked it can make a huge difference in your wedding. One of the main reasons weddings aren’t enjoyable for some people is the fact that the reception did not have any work into it, and the reception is perhaps one of the most important pieces to a wedding excluding the ceremony. The reception is where you will enjoy the cake, and share important dances with the bride and groom. Here you will create memories that can last a lifetime, and choosing the appropriate decorations can make a huge difference. Another thing to consider is the food that is served in the reception. Often times food is overlooked and there is not much of a choice between what you wish to order, and a summer wedding must have is good food. As you can see, there are many things that can make your summer wedding spectacular.

Villas for Rent or For Sale

Looking At Villas for Rent or For Sale

After visiting Valletta a few years back, my husband and I decided that we definitely wanted to go back there at some point. We have recently come into some money from a family member that died on his side of the family, and we have decided that we want to buy property somewhere.

I started looking online for real estate for sale around us. Then I started talking to my husband about vacation homes and he asked me if I had looked at Valletta Malta real estate for sale. He said he would love to own something there. I immediately pulled up the real estate websites that have property for sale in Valletta Malta. This is a fantastic city which has so much history and historic buildings so purchasing a property there is definitely a wise decision for those who want to see their investment increase in value drastically over time

I found several vacation homes and condos that are just what we are thinking about purchasing. While the price is a little higher than camps around our own area, we have pretty much made up our mind that we want a vacation home here. We would only need to pay for travel to the area and not for the stay. Since we are both getting ready to retire we would be able to use something like this.

The property selection process

I have saved several listings so I can show them to my husband. I want to see which ones he wants to look at so we can make travel arrangements to visit Valletta Malta and see the properties in person. My husband can take time off from work when needed and as soon as he tells me which homes he wants to look at I plan on contacting the real estate agent that they are listed with.

St. Julians, Malta

Since we will be paying cash for the property and not financing it, I imagine that the sale will be a hassle free and easy one to complete. We don’t want to have any loans, even for a vacation home like this and want to pay the asking price for it. Since most of the properties for sale in Valletta are old, our friend from the villa rentals website Luxury Villas Malta have suggested we should buy an old property and convert it, this will have charm and character.

There is also no rates, property taxes, council tax or other tax of some sort in Malta, so once you purchase a property there’s no running costs involved except that of the maintenance of your property. Tradesmen are also cheap compared to other countries like Australia or America. Houses are very durable because they are built from masonry stone which stands high winds and heavy rain fall.

I can’t wait to see these homes in person so we can choose which one will be most suitable for our needs. I know that many of these homes are in great locations since I looked at them on the map. Finding one that is in great shape and has exactly what we want is important. We don’t want to put any work into the home after we purchase it and want it to be in the best shape possible.
