Tip-toeing through the tulips on a dark night is likely to end in tripping and tragedy, or have you arrested as a stalker. Safety and security are two of the main reasons for lighting up the outdoors. The other is ambience, looking good and creating atmosphere. Often the three can be combined.
Presuming you have decided to go beyond using a flashlight, or looking out from a glass walled home into the creepy darkness it is time to decide upon a lighting system, or combination of systems. Do you yearn to show off your fabulous pool, or just make sure any visitors don’t decide to come back and sue you after stumbling on the path? Perhaps you just want to be able to light up the BBQ area or patio. Many options are available whatever your budget.
To light up a path, small garden, or patio area portable solar powered lights may be the answer. They are inexpensive and you can add to the collection as the budget allows. These lights can be poked in anywhere you want them and are easy to change around, just as you move your plants. The main downside to solar lights is lack of sunshine to keep them charged, in which case they take subdued lighting to beyond usefulness.
If the area you want to light up is not used all the time then candlelight or kerosene lanterns are good for providing ambient lighting on special occasions. Outdoor dining areas can also benefit from a combined heating and lighting unit and these are available in a vast array of sizes and prices to suit any area.
For more permanent outdoor lighting solutions low voltage cabling is relatively inexpensive to install. Many of these systems run on inexpensive LED lights which can be extremely bright or provide warm white light. If you want super bright then halogen is still the way to go but be aware that it can damage any nearby foliage.
If your aim is ambient lighting for a larger outdoor area a few things are recommended. Large trees always look impressive with a mix of uplights and downlights. Lit water features, either ponds or pools, add the beauty of movement and reflection while floodlights on focal point statues or walls can add a sense of drama.
When cost is not an issue hire a designer to find the best lighting options and products to suit your section. For the more frugal, try taking some night photos of your section and then play around with the flare filters on Photoshop, or any other imaging programme to find a look you like, then go bargain hunting for the best lights.

The Wedding Bells Are Ringing! Use These Tips For Yours!
Many of us have daydreamed about the day when we will walk down the aisle ever since childhood, right down to the gown we will wear, what our hair will look like, and the colors in our bouquet. Wedding planning can be thrilling but without help, it can be overwhelming.
Weddings are one of the more difficult things to plan during the course of your life. Make sure that before your wedding, you are extremely organized so you are in a great position when it comes time to decide on certain questions. This will give you the best opportunity for success.
Remember to consider how you would like the alcohol at your reception served, and how much it will cost. If there is one thing people like more than alcohol, it is free alcohol, and an open bar can quickly become a huge expense, especially the longer it remains open. Check with your venue to find out the alcohol options they have for you to choose from.
If something goes wrong on your wedding day, don't freak out! My cake fell over on the way to my ceremony, and both the best man and woman were unable to attend. In the end, those people are no longer in my life and my new best woman was a cake decorator who was able to fix the cake. It will always work out!
Think of an exotic location for your wedding to make it even more fun and memorable! You could hold your ceremony at a ranch and ride a white horse down the aisle, or have it at a wildlife preserve and have an animal bring the rings down the aisle. I wouldn't recommend choosing a turtle for that job, though!
If you are planning a wedding, consider keeping your guest list on the smaller side. You can save money by having not so many guests. You can show your small number of guests' greater details such as large gift baskets, large meals, and limo services. This can be paid for just by reducing your guest list.
Consider visiting a local park or museum to have your wedding photos taken. It's amazing to have a gorgeous background in your photographs, but sometimes your actual wedding location might not offer such a view. Contact your city's government office to see if you'll need a photography license for the location you choose.
Make sure that after your wedding you send thank-you notes to all of your guests for not only coming to your wedding but for the gifts that they gave to you. This will make them feel special and show that you appreciated them using their time to share your special moment.
If you're going to photograph a wedding, change up your style a few times. Look for angles you might not have shot from before to give the wedding album something unique and different to set it apart from the rest. Go up high or down load, shoot wide angles and tight.
Look around before committing to a photographer. You do not want to have someone taking wedding pictures that you are not pleased with. Look for online reviews to find great photographers.
Try to avoid being sick for your wedding! Up your intake of Vitamin C and eat only healthy items in the weeks leading up to the big day. Stay away from any foods that may cause stomach upset or gas as the last thing you want to do when you're standing at the front of the ceremony is be flatulent!
It is okay to let loose at your wedding reception. Many people take their wedding day too serious and do not remember it is supposed to be a joyous occasion. When this happens, they look back at their special day with unpleasant memories. Laugh with your guests, and dance to upbeat music.
Ensure that everyone coming to your destination wedding, knows exactly what to do and where to go when they get off the plane. Provide them with detailed instructions on how to get to the hotel and then, how to get from the hotel to your wedding location. They should also have help in heading home.
You do not have to be overwhelmed by the thought of planning your wedding once you use the tips you have just read. With the tips from above, you can handle planning your wedding and look forward to your big day.
