There are many ways to take something that looks old, damaged and stained and turn it into something that is pleasing to the eye. You do not need to spend a lot to do this; you just need to know what needs fixing and what does not.
If you decide you want to have your wedding at your residence instead of spending too of money much on a hotel you first need to spruce up your house. If you have a big garden you can opt for having the ceremony outside. However, you will not be able to entertain if you have a field of overgrown grass. It would be wise to cut the grass close to the wedding as there will be less time for the grass to grow.
It would be realistic to have a back-up plan in case it rains. You could either have tents placed in the garden but this would mean that the guests would have to be confined only to the small area in the tent therefore you should also consider having a space inside the house which could hold the guests. You do not have to spend the time and money to correct every minor detail. For example, if you have a small dent in the wall that is barely visible this could be covered up by a fresh coat of paint. The paint would not only hide the dent but it would give the house a lively look. Sweeping and dusting can go along away. You would be surprised as to how new your home can look by just removing away the dust.
When moving the furniture around to set up for the occasion you should make sure you do not damage the floorboards. For example if you had any work done on the floors, for instance if you had a polishing job recently done, dragging the furniture around on the floors would cause all the money spent on the polishing to go down the drain. If your house is not correctly leveled and you are looking to mend the problem within a certain time frame, you should contact a contractor who would be able to finishing the job within a certain period of time. You should also ensure the services are reasonable with their restumping costs in Melbourne.
