If you have a busy schedule or aren’t the type to relish in all the small details of planning a wedding, then efficient planning can be a lifesaver! Take a look our tips for managing your time and taking short cuts to cut down on planning:
Wedding Planning Idea #1
In order to stick to your budget, prioritize the most essential aspects of your special day. Number every detail of importance from the ceremony, attire, reception to the honeymoon. By prioritizing the most important details, it allows for decisive wedding planning and reduces the chances of you adding more than you can manage.
Wedding Planning Idea #2
Find one shop for wedding attire. Shop for your gown at a bridal shop that carries an extensive inventory of leading designers and different price points. This saves times by avoiding shopping at several different boutiques.
Here in Georgia, we have the celebrated bridal salon, Bridals by Lori, made famous by the cable television show, “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta.” The bridal store has an extensive collection of wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses, and even accommodates the groom and groomsmen, mother of the bride, flower girls, and other wedding attire accessories. This way everyone can order and schedule fittings at the same time.
Wedding Planning Idea #3
When it comes to the bridesmaids dress selection, it’s impossible to please everyone. Not to mention coordinating everyone’s schedule to try on a ton of dress styles. Instead of selecting one style bridesmaids dress, choose one color. Then, let each of your bridesmaids select a style that suits their figure and personal style.
Wedding Planning Idea #4
Shop in bulk. Save time shopping around for gifts to dole out to your guests and wedding party. Retailers, such as Sam’s Club, Costco and party planning stores offer troves of fun party goods. For unique wedding party favors, trinkets and even jewelry for your bridal party, try Etsy.com. Some Etsy merchants even offer bulk rate prices on their unique wedding party offerings.
Wedding Planning Idea #5
Find an all in one wedding destination. Alleviate the stress of going from the church, the reception hall to the honeymoon. Opt for a destination wedding, where the venue can accommodate all three facets of the wedding.
