Congrats! If you’re reading this, you might have something new and sparkly on that ring finger. This is such an exciting time, albeit slightly overwhelming and scary. But no worries, we’re here to help! Before you get into detail-mania, let us help you organize a bit and get those priorities straightened out.
We came up with some tips and tricks to keep the time leading up to your big day stress-free and under control. Below are a few ways to streamline the process to make planning as easy as the bouquet toss!
Check out any apps that specialize in organizing the details. The Knot is the biggest and most popular tool for a reason- you can build your own wedding website, keep checklists and view profiles for reputable vendors who will make your day the best it can be. (Check out our storefront to start perusing!)
If you aren’t sure of the overall theme you want to go for, browse various ideas and inspiration on places like Pinterest or Etsy. Not only can they help you figure out what you like, but it’s a great way to find some fun DIY elements to make your wedding more personal.
Put your guests first! From hors-d'oeuvres to favors, think of what will make them have a great time. To leave a lasting impression, give a personalized favor. There are so many companies that get creative with what they do with products, like the company OneHope Wine. Half of the profits from each of their wine varietals are donated to different charitable organizations. When the wine is purchased for your wedding, an additional percentage can be given to the charity of your choice.
Let's just be honest, we all love a good discount and when that discount is for boutique workout classes we love it even more. Flash that bling at Swerve and Pure Barre and start sweating-for-the- wedding for a little bit less. You can also sign up with your financé for an even better deal AND Swerve will give you a complimentary ride for your wedding party. So hop on that spin bike and relieve some of that planning stress because like everyone's favorite Harvard law student said: "exercise gives you endorphins; endorphins make you happy!"
Don’t forget about logistics like transportation. Thinking about how to get everyone to the ceremony, reception, hotel and back can seem like a nightmare, but that’s what Skedaddle is here for! You can get luxury chauffeured vehicles for your bridal party and guests in just a few clicks. Everyone benefitting from the open bar will definitely thank you.
