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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.
