Life is hectic enough without throwing in planning a wedding.
Even though putting plans together is really exciting, even the most organized bride can become stuck. There’s so much to do, and sometimes, it can seem like a never-ending task. If you’re a busy bride with a packed schedule, here are some suggestions to help you pull through and arrange the most spectacular day.
Hire a wedding planner
If you’re juggling work, family commitments and wedding planning, life can get pretty insane and fast.
Even if you want to devote more time to planning your wedding, you may simply not have enough hours in the day. If this sounds familiar, consider hiring a wedding planner. Look for professionals with expertise in planning events similar to what you have in mind. If you’re going for a sophisticated, high-end wedding, look for luxury wedding planners, for example. Search online, or ask around for recommendations. Make sure you meet with people before you make a decision. You’re going to be working closely with your wedding planner for months to come, so it’s important that you get on. Once you’ve made your decision, you can hand over a wide range of tasks. Your wedding planner can make calls, liaise with suppliers, and make sure everything is booked and paid for.
Get your wedding party involved
You’ve chosen your wedding party for a reason. They are people that mean the world to you, and you can trust them. If you’re struggling to get everything done, get others involved. Let your bridesmaids organize your bachelorette party or help out with sourcing table decorations. Send your ushers on a wine tasting mission or ask your in-laws to help out with sending invitations out. Often, the smallest jobs take the most time, so helping hands can make a massive difference.
When it comes to planning your big day, there’s a lot of wedmin involved. It pays to be organized from day one. Don’t be afraid to be one of those people who lives for lists and spreadsheets. These will help you keep track of where you’re up to and identify tasks that still need to be completed. Make sure you update your records. Keep a copy of invoices, and mark guests who have sent an RSVP. Use a calendar or set alerts on your phone to remind you when to make payments or confirm bookings.
Book time off
If you’ve got holiday that needs using, take a couple of days off and devote some time to your wedding. You’ll be amazed at home much you can do in a short space of time once you’re in the zone. Write a list, and work your way through it.
Are you a busy bride struggling to juggle wedmin with work? If so, you’re not alone. Try not to panic, and stay calm. There are ways you can manage your time, and ensure you end up with a perfect day. Don’t be afraid to delegate some jobs to friends and family. Try and be as organized as possible from day one. If you haven’t got enough time and you’re chasing your tail, consider hiring a wedding planner. With the right help and good time management skills, you can do it! Good luck!
