Wedding Prep – No Time, No Problem
We’re all busy these days. Lots of us are working long hours so that we can make our rent each month and, on top of all that work, many of us also have a packed social calendar to try and stick to. Everyone seems to be busy bees all the time!
So, then what happens if your partner decides to pop the question? You might start to have a panic attack when you realize you have no time to plan a wedding! But it doesn’t have to be like that. In fact, planning a wedding is perfectly possible even if you have no time for all that organization. The following tips should help you get there without too much stress!
Hire A Wedding Planner
One of the obvious things you could do is to hire a wedding planner, such as Creative Destination Events. This is especially useful if you are thinking of getting married abroad. The company will allocate you your own wedding planner who will be able to help you get everything ready for the big day. Just let them know the wedding theme you would like and your ideal venue. They will do all the hard work and find possible venues for you. Don’t worry, though; you will have the final say in which one you go with!
Get Your Suppliers To Come To You
You will need to hire a few different people for your wedding day, like a photographer, DJ or band for the evening party, and caterers for the wedding breakfast. Heading out to meet all these different suppliers can take up a lot of your time. One way to save some time is to get all these suppliers to come to you. If you organize meetings at your own home, it will cut out all the time you would have needed to take to get to each supplier. If your supplier won’t come to see you at home, they might be happy to arrange a Skype meeting.
Plan A Schedule
Even though your current schedule may be quite tight, I’m sure you will be able to block out an hour each week to focus on wedding planning. Even just one hour a week should be enough to call suppliers and organize important aspects of your big day. You may need to make more time to do some of the more important parts of planning, such as shopping for a wedding dress. Thankfully, most bridal boutiques are open on the weekends, so you don’t have to miss work or lose your evenings to finding a dress!
Get Your Partner To Lend A Hand
The wedding prep shouldn’t solely be done by the bride-to-be! If your partner hasn’t offered to help you, simply give him some jobs to do. After all, it is his big day as well, and you should split all the planning 50-50. If either of you is particularly busy, the other should step up and take over.
