    Last updated 5 months ago

    A lot of people have been picturing their wedding for years. Even if you fall into this category, you might start to feel overwhelmed once you begin organizing the details for your big day. Keep reading to find out how a wedding planner can help you get exactly what you want for your wedding without all of the stress:

    It Frees Up Your Schedule
    Between meeting with potential vendors and making countless small decisions about details like table linens, planning a wedding can quickly turn into a full-time job. If you already have a job, a social life, and familial obligations, it can be hard to find the time to fit in your wedding planning. A professional wedding planner can handle the minutia so you have time for your actual life.

    It Provides On-Site Help
    If you have chosen a hotel hall that is out of town as your reception venue, it can be difficult to make plans from far away. Hiring a wedding planner makes it much easier to organize every detail of an out-of-town wedding. A wedding planner makes it easy to get what you want without having to take multiple trips to your venue before your big day. With their professional help, you do not have to work as hard or get as stressed.

    It Helps You Stick to a Budget
    Wedding planners have a lot of experience in the industry, which means they know how to find the best prices for vendors like florists and caterers. If you are working with a tight budget, dealing with a wedding planner makes it easy to bring together your ideal wedding and truly enjoy your special day without spending too much.

    Tips for Making Your Golf Game More Consistent

    Last updated 5 months ago

    If you want to get better at golf, you have to improve on your fundamentals. Use the following tips to play more consistently every time you step on the course:

    Level Your Shoulders
    Whenever you swing with an iron, you should take the time to get your shoulders really level. Get a feel for the position by pushing down on the butt end of the club and mimic the position when you take your stance. If you are using a driver, though, your shoulders should face slightly toward the target.

    Tighten Your Backswing
    Wasting too much energy in your backswing could actually hinder your game. Find a wrist hinge that feels comfortable and gently move to the top when you swing. If you can tighten your backswing, you should start to improve whenever you pick up an iron.

    Split Up Your Force
    A lot of beginners generate too much force when they swing a driver. It is nearly impossible to play consistently when you hit the ball so hard, though. They make this mistake by overusing the lower body. When you swing, your right food should move forward on your downswing. The toe should follow the heel and your right knee she gradually shift toward the left knee. This reduces the excess force while giving you more control over your swing.

    Improve Your Balance
    Balance is a key element of a solid golf game. Add some balance work into your normal exercise routine so you can start to build on this skill and improve your overall golf game. Try to do some bicep curls or chest flies while standing on one leg to start bettering your balance.

    With the beautiful golf course at Turf Valley, it is more enjoyable than ever to practice and improve your game. We also have hotel conference facilities and fine dining on-site to give you the perfect oasis between Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
