Storage in Salem Oregon Comes with a Lower Price   

Here in Salem, Oregon Storage can be hard to come by, and as we all know when demand exceeds supply prices go up. Many local storage facilities seem to have taken this to heart, and instead of competing for the lowest price, they compete to see who can charge the most, and still stay reasonably full. While this may make sense to them from a business standpoint, it artificially increases their prices, and cannot last.

Storage for Woodburn Oregon Residents at an Affordable Salem/Keizer Facility

Finding a mini storage unit, or outdoor trailer and RV storage around Woodburn can be a daunting task. There are so many facilities, and storage units are in short supply, driving prices consistently higher and higher. With more and more families moving into the area, and with the city growing rapidly, storage companies have seized the opportunity to squeeze more out of their customers – that is when they aren’t full to capacity.

Best Wedding Venue for Your Ceremony and Reception in Oregon

Most of the different aspects of a wedding are optional, from wearing a suit or a veil, to ditching the wedding favors, to an elaborate wedding cake. However, there’s one thing you can’t skip– a venue! After all, you’ve got to have somewhere for your friends and family to gather and celebrate!  To CELEBRATE the occasion of your wedding is so important because the details of your day are planned around where this event will be held. This is the place you will never forget and will refer back to for the next 50 years.

Finding the perfect venue isn’t easy.  There are so many options to choose from, from a countryside chapel to an elegant hotel.  Here are some tips to help you find your dream venue.

Affordable Dream Wedding. Voted: Mid-Valley Wedding Gold Medal Winner 3 Years in a Row. http://affordabledreamwedding.com

1) Choose a wedding venue that aligns with your vision.

The venue you choose for your big day can really set the tone for your event, whether you choose a casual beach or a crystal ballroom. Choosing a venue that fits in with, and brings out, your theme will make your wedding feel more connected to the space.  It is likely you, as the bride, have been dreaming about where you will have your wedding with your dream partner.  It is OK to have visions in the past, but now it is time to try and find that right place. Settling on the basics of your wedding will help you and your spouse narrow down the many venues out there, and find the one that’s right for you.

2) Should you choose a traditional wedding chapel with a bell to ring after the vows or a non traditional place like a vineyard on a hillside?

Do you still dream of coming down the aisle of a church covered in rose petals in much the same setting as your grandmother was married?  The traditional wedding chapel/church holds a special spirit and reflects the tradition of how weddings were done going back hundreds of years. Whereas nontraditional places are becoming more popular today.  However, these types of weddings can be an expensive decision as it’s not cheap to prepare a vineyard or beachside location.

Notice the kaleidoscoping colors on the hardwood floor in the photo above caused by the many stained glass windows. http://affordabledreamwedding.com

3) What is your guest list number that the couple came up with?

Remember the amount of people you invite is never the number of people whom will actually attend on your wedding day.  Sad to say, after all the bother you put into sending out an RSVP note along with your invite, and that your guest take the time to send back.  Always scale down on your attempted list of guests. You need to give your caterers the realistic number, not the dream number.  This is an expensive decision especially if you have a caterer that charges by the plate. You will pay for every plate you order whether the guest shows up or not. Expensive!!

This is one of the early items you must have planned out before you choose your venue…what is the expected count of who will attend?  Having a firm number and staying with it will save you a lot of headaches. Knowing your number of guests will help you break down your budget, as some costs are very dependent on the number of people you’re inviting.

Have your weddings, corporate events, funerals, church, conferences, and community functions at our low cost and convenient location. As you walk into our main entrance, as seen above, you will be treated to a high level of care that you and your party deserve when celebrating life. http://affordabledreamwedding.com

4) Stay on your budget no matter what.

From the start of planning your wedding day until the day of the wedding itself, stay on your budget.  It is very hard to do and easy to lose track. If this all works out for you, it will amazingly control your stresses to the end. If your venue cost blows your budget out of the water, you’ll either need to scale back your design and extras, or look at more affordable spaces.  Some venues are unrealistically expensive, so be very careful.  You may think this is the one when you arrive but once you see the price you may need to move on.  This is a very common mistake. You need to keep your budget in the front of your mind until the end. Once you know the cost of your venue, you will be more comfortable taking the next step of planning your food and decor.  Remember you still have to budget for the honeymoon as well.

5) Think about what is included in the cost of your venue.

When you’re looking at venues that are full-service versus places where you can bring in your own vendors and decor, be sure to price everything out.  A venue with tables, chairs, and linens included might cost more upfront than a venue where you need to rent your own, but you should get an estimate from a rental company to see how they compare once you’ve added on the price of renting things for yourself.

Remember that the venue may have the basic items for rent (white linens, standard flatware, banquet chairs, round and rectangle tables etc.). You may still end up paying more to rent items that fit your vision, whereas if you find a venue that has those items for rent at their site, this could be the best choice because that will take away some of your stresses and cost less.

6) Narrow down when to have your wedding date.

Booking a wedding venue means that you’ve officially “set the date” for your big day. You may already have a wedding date in mind, or you may be able to be a bit more flexible if your date is taken.  Either way, one of the first steps in choosing a wedding venue is to narrow down a few dates that you know will work for you. While saying that you’re getting married “next summer” is a good start, the best advice before you start looking at venues is to have a few dates in mind for your special day.  You will be surprised that many wedding venues get booked one year in advance.

7) Weigh the pros and cons.

If you fall in love at first sight with a particular venue, that is a great or special feeling.  However, don’t feel too much pressure to sign on the dotted line during your initial tour. It’s best to take a step back, tour a few venues, and discuss your options with your future spouse and family.  Think about the pros and cons of all of the venues you toured, and work together to come to a decision on your top choice. Every place has pros and cons.

8) Sign the contract for your venue.

When you and your future spouse have agreed on your desired venue it is time to sign the contract.  In most cases you have to pay half down on the venue to save the date and that portion is nonrefundable.  Those words “nonrefundable” are a bit scary, so make sure you are 100% satisfied with the venue and your date for the event.

Now you have made the most important decisions you’ll make during your wedding planning process. It is worth taking time to CELEBRATE this accomplishment. You picked the venue and the date!

Police Keep it (Mostly) Peaceful in Portland Protests

Thirteen people were arrested and six people were injured, with one requiring hospitalization, after a day of protests in Portland Saturday.  The Portland Police Bureau, several other local and national law enforcement agencies, and civic organizations and leaders throughout the city had spent weeks preparing for much worse.  It was their stated mission to protect members of the right-wing group, Proud Boys, and left-wing Antifa protesters, from each other by keeping them separate.  For the most part, they succeeded.  However, the Proud Boys have already warned they’ll be back.

Portland Leaders Nervously Prepare for Dueling Protests Saturday

A cursory glance at the extended weather forecast— and the local news— suggest that Portlanders might be advised to spend this weekend somewhere calm, like the Oregon coast.  Or, for that matter, perhaps Syria.  To be sure, there are plenty of events happening in and around the city.  The Portland Police want you to know that.  The main event, of course, is an expected right-wing rally, and left-wing counter-protest, at Tom McCall Waterfront Park.  To those expected to attend, including many from out of town (or out of state), Portland’s political and business leaders had a simple message: stay home.

Ready to Rumble: Portland Police Call for Backup

Two weeks before the next scheduled outdoor MMA fight downtown, Portland police are taking no chances.  Dueling protests, between right-wing and left-wing groups, have been arranged at Tom McCall Waterfront Park on August 17.  Neither side has bothered to ask for a permit.  The police, tasked with keeping these groups apart, have frequently been outnumbered by Antifa demonstrators, and thus unable to complete their mission.  This time, they’re apparently calling in backup, and lots of it.

“Oregon’s Eleven” Senator Sues Over Fines, Capitol Access

A month ago, eleven Republican members of the Oregon State Senate walked out of the State Capitol, denying the chamber a quorum and bringing all legislative business to a halt.  At issue was a controversial cap-and-trade bill, which was eventually pulled for insufficient Democratic support.  Now, one of the Oregon 11 is suing the Democratic leadership and legislative officials.  Sen. Brian Boquist (R-Dallas) is challenging a $500-a-day fine imposed by the rump senate, and the requirement he provide at least 12 hours notice for showing up to work.
