One of the best ways of making sure a corporate event is memorable is to give the guests a useful or fun present in their gift bag. A gorgeous waterside venue, good food, great entertainment and a smart gift bag are exactly the things you need to give a wonderful lasting impression.
Out of the Box Office Supplies
To create a gift bag that will catch the attention of your guests, include the kinds of things that will be useful to them, but that aren’t your usual annoying knick-knacks. Corporate events are full of professionals who will always be in need of decent office supplies, such as USB memory sticks, diaries, laptop and iPad covers etc. Just keep your branding classy and try to avoid items that look cheap or childish.
Food is another popular choice for gift bags, as it's more likely to be used and enjoyed than some more typical gifts. If you decide to include food, try and choose local brands and make sure there's some variety in your choices. For example, try a mixture of savoury and sweet treats.
Gadgets can also be great additions to fun gift bags. Everything from keychain torches to cool headphones are sure to be appreciated by guests.
Tech Savvy Trinkets
If the attendees of your corporate event are likely to be quite tech savvy, you might want to think about including free music downloads or vouchers for online stores in your bags. This will save them from having to carry heavy gifts and can be a way of showing that you're a forward thinking company.

Your hen’s night is the perfect time to celebrate the last few days before tying the knot, but you don’t have to stick to old traditions to have fun. Make sure your night is full of laughter by having a go at some of these top games for a hilarious hen's nights:
1. Bridal Pictionary
Show off your drawing skills and enjoy keeping everyone guessing with a bridal twist to this classic game. You (or your maid of honour) will need to write the prompts yourself, but it's a very simple and cheap way to enjoy hours of fun.
2. Test the Bride
This is a great way to celebrate the upcoming nuptials. First, a round of questions about the groom will need to be devised and his answers must be taken and recorded. During the hen's night, the bride must try and guess his answers correctly.
3. Cake Tasting
This is a fun game for hens of all ages, largely because everyone tends to love cake. Ask everyone to contribute to buying or baking a selection of cakes with unusual flavours. Then, each player is blindfolded in turn and given samples of cake to see if they can guess the flavours correctly.
4. Wedding Trivia
Many people think they know a lot about weddings but there are always a few surprising facts out there. Nominate someone to gather at least 20 facts about weddings then host a short quiz to see who really knows their stuff.
5. Bridal Scavenger Hunt
Split into teams and follow clues or hints to find everything on a special, wedding themed list. Set a time and price limit, and then send everyone off to see if they can find all the bridal swag.
Once the hen’s night is over, it's time to concentrate on the wedding itself. Choose somewhere brilliant for the big day, like a gorgeous waterfront wedding venue in Sydney, by calling (02) 8999 8502 and finding out more about The Waterfront Function Centre.

Don’t want the fun to stop as soon as your reception ends? Prolong all the joy of your special day by organising a great afterparty for your closest friends and family. A wedding reception afterparty can be a wonderful way of making sure you get to spend plenty of time with your guests, and make your wedding day last as long as possible.
An afterparty doesn’t need to be as carefully organised as your main reception and can even be held somewhere that's open to the public. On the other hand, you can find out whether your wedding reception venue has a separate bar or room you can retire to once the reception is over.
Just remember that location is going to be one of the most important secrets to success as many of your guests will be tired and looking for somewhere easy to get to. You should also think about finding food options as well as drinks. You'll have fed your guests at your reception, but by the time the afterparty kicks off plenty are likely to be peckish again.
Your wedding dress is pretty special, but you might be tired of wearing it by the time your reception concludes. The good news is that at the afterparty you can wear whatever you want – whether it’s your wedding dress or another outfit chosen specially for the occasion. Let your guests get more comfortable and casual too and everyone can relax and let their hair down and continue celebrating you and your new hubby’s big day.

What would a wedding be without music? The special songs you play have a huge impact on the atmosphere of your wedding reception and many brides and grooms can get quite stressed about finding the perfect marriage between music and atmosphere. Put your mind at rest by dispelling some of these common wedding music myths:
DJs Only Play Cheesy Tunes
Some DJs may love cheesy tunes, but there are many who avoid them at all costs. Find a DJ with similar tastes to yours and give them a sample list of the kind of songs you'd want to hear before you make an agreement. If you click and they know the songs you're talking about, the chances are that you'll love their set.
Wedding Bands Don’t Offer Enough Variety
The key here is to make sure that when you’re choosing a wedding band, you let them know that you want variety. Many couples want their music to be quite limited so it's up to you to show potential bands that you’re looking for something a little different. You'll be pleasantly surprised to find most wedding bands are more than happy to oblige.
DJs will save you money
It depends on the bands and the individuals, but there's often very little difference in the price you pay for a good DJ and the cost of a wedding band. Investigate local prices before making your choice.
