How To Organize Your Modern Wedding

Multi-tasking comes easily to you. You always have your life under control. That is until you began to plan your wedding. No matter how good you are, a wedding is a monumental task.

To plan a wedding you have to contact different business people in different companies and coordinate their arrival. If one of these key players in the wedding fails, the domino effect will begin. So how do you rope this in and ensure you have your dream wedding?

Time to call in the team

A wedding planner is a must. Even wedding planners hire a wedding planner when they plan a wedding. You have enough to do to keep you running. Let the wedding planner do what she does and you have time to iron out the details.

Next, you need to contact a dress supplier like Azazie. You may need traditional bridesmaid dresses in a color like baby blue or blush pink, or you may want an elegant bridesmaid color like champagne or black. Azazie can accommodate you. They are there to serve you, so just reach out to them. They are unique in that they will let you pay a small (really small) deposit and send bridesmaids dresses to you to try on at home. You can save a lot of time and money taking advantage of online services. The sooner the bridesmaid dresses are out of the way, the more you can focus on you.

Define Bridesmaid

Somewhere along the line, brides became confused about the duties of their bridesmaids. Your bridal party is made up of people you love and respect, who are willing to help you pull your wedding together.

This doesn’t mean they are to be treated like hired help. Nor does it mean they are to ignore their own responsibility to help you. Make your selections carefully. If one of your maids in waiting has young children, you cannot expect her to have time to run errands for you.

Assign duties

Remember to be kind, thoughtful, and polite. Remember to thank them when they have taken their time and effort for you. The function of a bridesmaid is to attend to the needs of the bride. While the majority of the duties fall on the maid of honor, each member of the bridal party should be willing to assist. Whether that means mailing invitations, arranging flower donations to a nursing home after the wedding, or picking up your shoes from the mall. Ask your bridesmaids to help you and assign them duties as they have time to help.

Being organized for your wedding is not just a good thing, it is a critical thing. The organized bride has everything she needs at hand when she needs it. She is not searching for a necessary item that slipped her mind.

Be organized, but cut yourself some slack. If some little something goes wrong, you have two choices, laugh it off or ruin the honeymoon screaming and crying. The second option usually doesn’t end well. Life isn’t perfect, but you can be perfectly happy with a little effort.

Business

Treat the preparations for your wedding like a business. Keep a binder with contracts, rental agreements, recipes, and names with phone numbers. Make sure you have all of the dates, times, and names of people you are dealing with.

If something happens to you like an illness or unexpected trip, someone can pick up the binder and know exactly where you are with wedding plans.

Being organized for your wedding is critical. You only get one shot at this eventful day. Good or bad, it cannot be redone. So work with your people and keep your finger on the wedding pulse. You will earn the perfect wedding of your dreams.

Best Tips for Organizing Your Dream Wedding

1. Set a Budget: Everyone has a budget and this will help determine all the other aspects of your wedding.

2. Guest List: Before choosing a venue, you need to know approximately how many people you wish to invite to your wedding. Make sure to include both the bride and groom’s family wishes.

3. Choose a Wedding Date: The wedding date can depend a lot on the wedding venue and whether it’s a destination wedding or a wedding in town.

4. Choose the Ceremony and Reception Venue: Most venues get booked months (if not years) in advance.  Make sure your venue can accommodate your guest list. If your reception is at a different location than the ceremony, you need to coordinate the time so that the venue is available after the ceremony.

Planning your wedding as early as possible will allow you to get the items (especially the venues) that you want.  It can also allow you to receive great discounts.

Wedding Registry Basics – What you should know when registering for your wedding

bridal1

You’re getting married and it’s time to set up your wedding registry (also known as a bridal registry). Your friends and family are going to give you gifts. By creating a registry, you’ll help ensure that they’ll be spending time, energy and money on something you really want and/or will use.

Give yourself time to browse.  Its good to began working on the gift registry about nine months before your big day. This will allow you some time to browse and decide which stores you would like to utilize for the registry. Take time to go to stores and use the registry gun because it’s really fun; but also use the internet registries which make it less time consuming to add items to your registry list.

Only register for items that you know you will use. The scanning gun is a powerful thing. Next thing you know you’re registered for all types of unnecessary household items – bread maker? Totally. Salad spinner? Of course..Try to register for gifts you know you will put to use right away. The last thing you’ll be doing as soon as you get home from your honeymoon is making bread from scratch!

Be sure to choose things that will last a long time. Do a little research before you decide on an item. If you need a new vacuum, be sure to look up consumer reviews first. It stinks when something you received as a wedding gift breaks only a few short months after the wedding.

Don’t forget to include items that are in the $20-$50 range. Everyone wants to buy you something, but not everyone wants to spend $100. Keep that in mind and select some lower priced items as well. Napkin rings, napkins and place-mats will always be needed and are great for people attending the wedding on a budget.

3. Consider how you will store the items when registering.
 Kitchen appliances seem great at the time you register, until you get them all together in your kitchen. If your cabinet and cupboard space is limited, it can be a headache trying to fit everything onto your counters.

Get a crock-pot. One dish meals are the secret weapon of wives around the world. A pot that cooks while you’re at work? Done and done.

Go classic. Your tastes will invariably change so make sure to register for classic items that you won’t get tired of after a few years. So don’t register for the burnt orange blender unless you truly love it.

The best way you can tell wedding guests about your registry is through printed card inserts, which you can include inside of the invitations. Or you can post a link on your wedding website and list the website inside of your invites. In some cases, there is an online buying option where friends and family can find the items you’ve registered for directly on the department store’s website.
