Wedding Planning Done Right – Stay Organized & Avoid Stress!

The 2017 Wedding Season has officially started and this means all of you lovely couples are in full planning mode for the upcoming “big day”!

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am super organized – to the point that I’m practically O.C.D. (fantastic for all those ordering stationery from me! Be assured that your invitations will be perfect!).  

I believe the key to having as minimal stress as possible in life is to stay organized.  The same is true with wedding planning.  The more organized you are, the less stressful the planning will be. Less stress means more happiness! And we all know that everybody is happy when the bride is happy!

Wedding Planners

Wedding Apps are great and there are so many that help with the planning, provide timelines, budgets, etc.

Personally, I recommend a paper planner.  I’m such a visual person and i need to see the “TO DO” list right in front of me.  I write down what I have to do every day, even if it’s only on a “Post-It”. It’s important for me to see the list and check off items as I complete them.  

My favourite wedding planner is “Planning a Wedding to Remember” by Beverly Clark, which can be purchased at any Indigo store for $37.    This book includes all the usual planning tools, timelines, schedules, budget sheets, etc., but also has tabs, dividers and pockets that help you organize each aspect of the wedding individually.

A “Day of Coordinator” is important, even if you have a good planner and can easily plan their own wedding. This person is key to ensuring everything flows smoothly so that the couple and their families don’t have to worry about anything.  If you need recommendations on who offers this service, please contact me..

Invitations

On a final note, the time to order your invitations is NOW!  Please start looking into ordering your invitations as soon as your date and venue are booked. Don’t leave this until last minute because it takes time to choose / design the perfect invitation for your special day. It’s better to order sooner rather than later – less stress this way!  

New this year at our DIY invitation packages, which allows you to design the invitation suite with us but assemble on your own. This is great for those looking for beautiful stationery, but on a budget. Please inquire for details.

Our Etsy Shop has a small selection of our favourite invitations.  You can also request a custom order and we offer free shipping within Canada.

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to meet.

Happy New Year and Happy Planning!
