Well-organised games can be a great way to help break the ice at your corporate event. For some great advice when it comes to choosing the most appropriate games, follow some tops tips from the experts to help make sure your guest list keeps growing.
At a corporate event you’ll want the kind of games that will help everyone feel involved but that won't be too disruptive to the day as a whole. Encouraging your guests to work together as part of team building exercises is always a good way to create bonds that will last beyond the day.
What's more, by putting people on the spot and asking them to think fast, you'll ensure they feel involved and engaged throughout the event. Gaming consoles are a great way to quickly and easily offer games that can be enjoyed by a wide variety of people. From Wii Olympics to Rock Band style karaoke competitions there are many different ways to incorporate console games into your event.
Competitive games that are also based on luck rather than skill can be excellent for helping your guests relax without putting any pressure on them. For example, introducing casino style games such as roulette or simulated horse racing games.
To ensure that your games work well with your event space, choose a venue that is happy to help you plan your event. Contact The Waterfront Function Centre on (02) 8999 8502 for more information on hosting a corporate event at a waterfront venue.

Find out how to go about choosing a perfect wedding dress that will make you feel special and give you just the look you're longing for with the help of these top wedding dress shopping tips:
6 – Keep an Open Mind
You may already have firm ideas about what kind of shapes and styles suit you, but don’t be controlled by these when you first start trying on dresses. Instead, try on a wide range and start narrowing down your preferred types after seeing what actually works.
7 – Never Opt for a Smaller Size
Shopping for a wedding dress that's one size smaller than the one you are now is a very common trend, but one that's best avoided. Organising a wedding can be busy and stressful enough don’t add the pressure of losing enough weight to fit into your dress to the mix.
8 – Check Your Contract
A wedding dress is often a significant investment and you're likely to have a contract covering your agreement. Double-check what is included in the price before you sign, to make sure there are no nasty surprises if you need to have extra fittings or if a problem with the design arises.
9 – Shop with Your Wedding Day Accessories
If you've already chosen a few special items, such as your jewellery, or have a colour scheme in mind, be sure to bring your accessories or colour swatches with you when you shop.
10 – Listen to Your Inner Voice
You'll probably have a support team along offering you advice as well as a sensible part of your brain assessing the ins and outs of each dress you see, but essentially, you need to trust your instincts – you'll know when you see the perfect dress.

No matter what kind of wedding you're planning, searching for the perfect dress or outfit is likely to be at the forefront of your mind. Not only will your dress be very important to you on the day itself, it will be a major feature in all of your wedding albums too. So follow these top tips to find a dress to cherish for a lifetime:
1 – Get Started Early
You need to start shopping for your wedding dress as early as possible, preferably at least eight months before the big day. Not only do you want plenty of time to check out all of the different options, you have to factor in the number of months it may take to have your perfect dress made or altered.
2 – Make a Firm Budget
Once you start shopping, you may find your heart and mind quickly swayed by all of the beautiful dresses on offer. Stay sensible by making a budget before you start looking and be sure to stick to it.
3 – Book an Appointment
To be sure you'll have the time and space you need at your favourite boutiques, book appointments and look forward to having the assistants’ undivided attention.
4 – Don’t Be Afraid To Ask
If you don't ask, you don't get. Many designers and shop owners will have a whole range of alternative options that they aren't able to display at once. Be very clear about what you want as you may find they can provide exactly that.
5 – Try Off-peak Shopping
Shopping during off-peak hours is a great way to avoid the crowds, enjoy more individual attention from shop assistants and ensure you have plenty of time to browse.

Dreaming about your wedding day is one thing, actually making it happen is quite another. When the time comes to start tying down all of the finer details, you may find yourself stuck for inspiration. Luckily, you can get your creative juices flowing again very quickly by paying a visit to a wedding expo to check out the latest wedding trends.
What to Expect At a Wedding Expo
An expo is an opportunity for local wedding companies to show off their goods. You can expect to see stalls packed with everything from gorgeous wedding dresses to cute bonbonniere or table decorations.
You'll also normally find companies offering tastes of various wedding cakes, and some expos also offer a catwalk show of various tuxedos and wedding dresses.
Expo Survival Tips
When paying a visit to a wedding expo, be prepared to be dazzled by the number of different options on offer. You'll definitely want to take a notebook and a pen with you so you can mark down the vendors you like, and it's a great idea to pack a canvas tote bag because you're sure to be given lots of flyers and freebies.
A camera is another essential, as it will help you remember your favourite stalls accurately rather than through rose tinted glasses. Be sure to wear flat shoes as you're likely to spend a lot of time on your feet.
