Be Organized & Stress Free - Getting Started

The next six to twelve months will be a very exciting time for you. There are many things you should do now and many that will have to wait until the last minute. What’s first?

In my opinion, the most important thing you can do right now is get a three-ring binder with pocket dividers. You’ll use this to keep contracts from all of the vendors you will deal with. Also, cut out pictures of gowns, flowers, cakes, decorations, colors, and anything else you like. “A picture is worth a thousand words” maybe an old saying, but it is still very true. Show your vendors what you like. It’ll be much easier. Start collecting names and addresses early. Sending your invitations is the hardest job of all.

The second thing to do is get a good wedding planning book. A planner will give you a list of details that you would never think of yourself. Keep a notepad and pencil by your bed. When you wake up in the middle of the night with another detail, write it down so you can go back to sleep. If not, you will stay awake all night trying to remember.

When you are able to locate all of these pieces easily, you’ll be so glad you started out organized.
