Weddings are one of the most expensive events you ever have to coordinate and sometimes, it literally pays to find ways to lessen this cost wherever you can. Many people these days are considering a DIY wedding as a way to achieve this. The reason for this is apparent; everything surrounding weddings has become such a slick industry that you are likely to be overcharged for almost everything you do. Take a wedding cake as an example; a simple iced cake cost $15, but a similar 3-tier cake, i.e. a wedding cake can be upwards of $500 when the real cost should be less than $50.

The Location

Dedicated wedding venues offer an all-inclusive service which is excellent if you are looking to save yourself some time. The downside for this convenience is that it can be extremely costly; often in the tens of thousands, as some wedding venues are known to cost almost $15,000 on average

An alternative is to rent a community hall or space and decorate it yourself for a few hundred dollars. Though this might be a fair amount of work, it is well worth the effort.


Wedding cars are another area where the cost can seem excessive and considering that they are only seen twice (when you arrive and when you leave), is the high cost justifiable? 

Consider this alternative, ask a friend who has a nice car and it can look just the thing once you put a couple of ribbons on it. Even if you do not have a friend with a nice car, a day’s car rental will be so much cheaper if you get it from a normal hire place rather than a wedding car specialist. 


The food is one thing that needs to be right. A tasty wedding feast can be knocked up without professional caterers. However, as a word of warning, this can be very time consuming, and it might be one area that you do still hire a professional. Make sure you get an excellent creative catering firm that can make it a special occasion.

The Wedding Dress

Now, this is the one that you are going to want to get right. You will usually have a firm idea of what you want, and this is the first starting point. You can find a few ways to save money that can still look awesome than a pricey new dress. You can buy vintage or second hand from many places, and even a family dress from your mother or grandmother can give a classy and personal touch. 


Floral displays can be put together by you and your friends, and they can be a great, memorable and special moment between you and your bridesmaids. This can save you a fortune as it’s easy to get hold of flowers wholesale and put together all of the bunches yourselves. Although it takes time, this can be a memorable time that is well spent, and it will give you something to do rather than just sitting and waiting to get going.


Once the vital part of the wedding is concluded (ceremony, speeches, and the dinner); there is the matter of the entertainment to be considered. I know of one couple (who are very close friends of mine) whose cousin was in a band, and they hired them to play the wedding. Although it was not as slick as a professional wedding band, it added a special touch to the wedding. If you don’t know a musician in the family, many musicians are looking to make a living from music that you can find someone quickly.

The Cake

We mentioned the cake as a prime example of a wedding item that you can be easily ripped off for. As we said, it’s much easier to get a different cake and re-purpose it as a wedding cake. Alternatively, you can get a relative who could bake and then decorate the cake on your own so that you can get what you want.

We are constantly looking for new input. It’s not because we don’t know how to live our own lives but it’s more like we just need some assurance before making any important decision. This way, we can minimise the number of regrets that we encounter later on in life.

What am I talking about?

Well, this can go with a lot of things – from shopping tips to dating ideas, and even advises on how to resolve family problems and such.

Thankfully, we have all sorts of avenues to help us answer some of life’s biggest and most curious questions.

Here are some daily questions that you should ask yourself on this website.

Well, maybe not the existential type of Q and A’s but more of the questions that we ask ourselves on a daily basis. Like, what meals should you plan for the kids to make sure that they get the best nutrients? Or, how you and your other half can keep the love in your relationship alive through the years?

None of us is an expert in all areas of life so all we can really do is to learn from each other’s experiences – no matter how trivial it may seem.

If you can see where I’m going with this, then that’s good. It would seem like we share similar hobbies and interests. Otherwise, it’s okay. I’m pretty sure that I can introduce you to the wonderful world of editorial sections and lifestyle magazines without fail!

That’s right.

Today, we are going to discuss why you should check out Lifestyle Brands on websites like The Melior Buzz. If you’re not into reading fashion and lifestyle tabloids yet, you’re missing out on some really good stuff and it’s about time you catch up too!

Who Needs Mags If You’ve Got Tabs?

You’ve got to admit; people are less likely to get papercuts these days.

And why is that?

It’s because they hardly use paper media anyways!

Ever since the Internet was introduced to the curious public, the need for prints has been growing less and less as the years go by. After all, why would you opt for a paper mag that cost so much if you can get the exact same information that you’re searching for on the Internet?

Thus, we come to the realisation: Who needs mags when you’ve got tabs?

The best part about online tabloids is that you can access them anytime and anywhere. With paper media, you either have it in your bag or you left it somewhere at home. However, with virtual magazines, as long as you have a device that can connect to the Internet, you can access the material or information whenever you want.

Now, this is what I call nifty and practical.

Also, the fact that you can bookmark your favourite reads is remarkable. You can go back to reread it again and again, or whenever the need arises.

With a physical book or mag, the minute you lose it – you’ll never get your hands on the same information again; unless you buy another copy.

But hey, I’m already assuming that you like reading about this stuff. If you don’t, I think I should start with convincing you to get into it, right?

Why Check Out Lifestyle Brands On Online Tabloids Like The Buzz?

Be honest with yourself.

I’m pretty sure that there are times when you think to yourself that an outsider’s opinion can really help you arrive at a decision.

After all, you can easily fall into your own bias (or the bias of others you know), and that can cloud your judgement in terms of selecting and buying products.

In the end, you regret your choices and think about your “what ifs.” Like, what if someone was there to guide you better? What if you were able to come across some important information at an earlier time?

Maybe, just maybe, you could’ve prevented some things from happening.

Well, this is the kind of input that online tabloids can give you.

Just like in magazines, the people who write about lifestyle brands are real individuals who’ve experienced a product or service first-hand. It’s either they loved something so much or hate it enough to make it known to the world.

These people who view brands objectively have no reason to share biased opinions with you unless they’re paid to influence you (like us). They have no reason to deceive or make you buy the wrong things. They’re just there to state their own opinions and guide you to making better choices or better purchases perhaps.

Whenever you’re in doubt or you’re having trouble with understanding the latest fads and trends, you can always check out what these websites have to say and come up with your own conclusion about things.

It’s not just limited to purchases too.

These websites can also give you some inputs when it comes to making lifestyle choices and important life decisions. Reading them is like talking to a best friend you haven’t met yet. The only difference is that this one can’t give you any sass; just genuine help.

There are many lifestyle-oriented websites on the net but I wouldn’t say that they’re all equally good. You should carefully select and curate which resources to follow because some of them might actually do you more harm than good.

Online reviews and recommendations can help you out with this part but even then, some might just very well be fake.

Choose your sources wisely.
