Tips for busy brides

If you're a bride-to-be, then this information is for you. There's never enough time in the day to get everything done before your big day. You might be feeling overwhelmed and stressed out about all of the things that still need to get done, but don't worry! We've got several quite useful tips that will make sure that your wedding does not go off course. 

  1. Create an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of all the different aspects of your wedding. Actually, a simple notebook will do, too. Make a list of everything that needs to happen before your wedding and what needs to happen after it. This way, you can prioritize tasks as they come up and know when something has been taken care of so that you can move on with another task without forgetting anything important or getting stuck in one place too long. 
  2. Schedule some time out of every day to devote to planning and/or making arrangements. Don't wait until the last minute! 
  3. Think of your image. Figure out what you want your wedding dress to look like and find samples online. Find a hairstylist. Be sure to get a manicure and pedicure before your wedding day.
  4. If you can't find what you need locally, try online shopping or out-of-town vendors. 
  5. Keep in mind that DIY projects may take more time and effort than they're worth when preparing for a big event like this one. 
  6. Invest some time and money into tasteful accents for the reception hall - it'll be well worth it! You will not regret it.
  7. Write down things as they come up (such as ideas for decor, colors, and cake flavors). This way, you can refer back and also have a record of your thoughts.
  8. Finally, don't forget to have fun while you plan everything! Your day should be special. Enjoy the process (and be sure to relax too)!

These are some helpful hints if you're feeling stressed about how much more there is left to do or just looking for a little inspiration as to what else needs to be done. We hope these tips are helpful and give you some clarity. After all, remember how much fun this experience will be in the end.
