Fashion World – The Death of the High Street

Incase you have not noticed we are currently witnessing the death of the high street in the fashion world. Many high street shops are closing down all over the UK. The big fashion/retail giants are not left out of this, many of them have closed down a lot of their stores, and some have closed all of them, moving their business full online. The death of the high street is happening and it is quite sad to see many of my favourite shops leave. It is also horrible to know many people have lost their jobs as a result of this crisis. It makes you wonder what the high street would look like 10 years from now.

The number of high street shops have been decreasing in the UK for many years now. Research has shown that shops in the UK have been decreasing for at least a century. Internet giants like Amazon and eBay have contributed to this decline. Many people like me rather shop online and have it delivered. Life is too busy to go into the shops to spend hours looking for what you want. It is a lot easier using the search bar on the brand’s website.

Nowadays, many people rather shop online which means business is slow in the brick and mortar section. Also, running a business online is a lot cheaper than having shops around. The online costs running a business  are between 10 per cent and 20 per cent less than running high street shops.This new way of life revolving around the big wide web has contributed massively to the death of the high street.

Some writers argue that the online shopping trend will stop in a few years and people will go back to shopping in stores. I don’t agree with that at all. That is like saying people will go back to renting DVDs over streaming on Netflix. I think shopping online trend is here to stay especially in the fashion world. It is just too convenient for consumers and cheap for businesses to run. Which is why I don’t see it going away. What I do see is the gradual death of the high street in the fashion world. More and more shops will close for good on the high street, and focus their energy and attention on running their businesses online. The future is online and the faster we embrace it, the better the shock will be for all of us.

Are you thinking about getting married abroad? The very idea is a dream for some couples who are looking to tie the knot in the near future, yet knowing how to plan a wedding in a different country can be difficult. You may not even know where to start. One of the more difficult decisions to make when it comes to getting married abroad is choosing a destination both you and your partner are happy with. If you haven’t really thought about which destination would be most suitable for you both, this guide will provide you with some ideas on the best abroad wedding destinations across the world:

 The Canary Islands

 

The Canary Islands are made up of seven main islands – Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, and El Hierro. In recent years, each of these islands has become popular destinations for couples to get married.

The golden shores and dark volcanic sands of each of the islands will make an excellent backdrop for your wedding photos. There’s plenty of family-fun attractions and historical and cultural delights to explore to enjoy either before or after the wedding.

What’s great about visiting the Canary Islands is that it’s ideal for those who aren’t good with heat. So, if you have very young or old guests who may struggle to cope in intense heat, this destination should suit them well. The average daytime temperature is roughly 22 degreesin the region, even in the height of summer. Find out more about Canary Island Holidays and what the local area has to offer before selecting which island to choose as your wedding destination.

 

St Lucia

If you’ve always dreamed of getting married in a tropical paradise, then St Lucia is a destination you should consider. With the striking combination of white sands, crystal seas, and turquoise skies, St Lucia is practically the definition of the ‘picture-perfect’ tropical resort many people dream about. There are many places you may decide to hold your ceremony here; whether it be a rooftop terrace overlooking the beach, or even on the beach itself. You could even book a steel drum band to play during the ceremony or as part of the evening celebrations.

Iceland

 

If the sunnier climates aren’t quite to your taste, then the wintry conditions of Iceland may be more up your street. One of the most popular spots to say ‘I do’ is at one of the island’s famous tourist attractions – the blue lagoon. Here you’ll be surrounded by the toasty 37-degree waters with reflections of the towering dark rocks.

If you’re a little more adventurous, you could decide to tie the knot at the top of 200-foot-high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, or even near the crater of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Do take into consideration that some of your guests may not be the best with heights, so ponder whether you’d be happy to marry with just a few witnesses in attendance, or all of your family and friends.

Las Vegas

What better way to bring the element of fun to your wedding a Las Vegas ceremony? If you’re not too fussed about having all of your family and friends in attendance, then this type of wedding may be ideal for you. Why not get hitched in the classic Graceland Wedding chapel? Simply drive up to the venue and allow Elvis to witness you exchanging your vows. If you prefer to keep your wedding tasteful and refined, you could instead get married in one of the cities many glamorous hotels, such as the world-famous Bellagio. Do be aware that you will need basic documentation for getting married in Las Vegas.

In recent years, the number of couples who choose to marry in Italy has soared, which is most likely due to the fact that some of Hollywood’s rich and famous have already been there and done it. Italy is, of course, the most romantic country in the world, which is a given as to why it’s such a popular resort.

Some of the most popular wedding destinations in Italy include Sorrento, Positano, Capri, and Portofino to name just a few; however, you could also opt for the cities of Rome, Florence, and Venice if you’re keen to be amongst iconic architecture.
