Get off to a Smart Start: 5 Wedding Ideas Every Couple Should Use
Posted on: April 29, 2016
Wedding planning: notoriously stressful and time-consuming. This is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life, but getting there can be quite the journey. We can’t promise smooth sailing, but here are a few tips to help make your life a bit easier.
- Create a wedding checklist.
A checklist will help you stay organized and keep track of important deadlines. Plus, the satisfaction of checking something off is totally worth it.
- Plan out your budget.
We can’t stress enough the importance of creating — and sticking to — your budget. Items on your list can add up quickly, so make sure you’re prepared with a realistic, itemized amount you plan to spend.
- Set your guest list.
Start out by listing the absolute most essential people you want to be there. For those couples with a “The more, the merrier” attitude, think of this as a way to maximize your budget by giving each guest a higher quality experience.
- Post a wedding website.
Build the anticipation and excitement both for yourself and your guests. Use your wedding website to post details, teasers and a countdown.
- Put together an inspiration board.
As much as we like to think we have everything stored away in our minds, the sheer amount of planning that goes into a wedding can overload your brain. Take the time to organize your vision by creating an inspiration board either online or craft one to carry around with you.
