Your wedding planning will be a breeze with these 10 wedding hacks...
1. Get Yourself a Wedding Planning App
Luckily for you, hitched has two wedding planning apps! We have the hitched app which helps you plan your wedding on the go, and the hitched App for Wedding Guests, which allows you to collect all of your guests photos together in chronological order, and more!
2. Create a Dedicated Email Address
Make a ‘wedding email’ to use on all your wedding correspondence and when dealing with suppliers. This makes it easier to keep all your wedmin together, and means that after the big day you won’t be filtering out wedding emails from your day to day mail.
3. Get a Budget Planner
A budget planner will help you keep track of your spending as you plan your big day. The hitched budget planner helps you divide up your spending costs proportionately too!
4. Number Your RSVP Cards
By numbering your RSVP cards, if your guests forget to fill out their names and details, you can still figure out who it is by matching up the number to your guest list.
5. Have a ‘Point of Contact’
On your wedding day, hand over your phone to your maid of honor or another responsible bridal party member, and let them deal with whoever dares to phone the bride on the morning of the wedding!
6. Make an Online Guest List
Using the hitched guest manager tool, it’s easy to keep track of your guests and to transfer them easily to the table planner tool too!
7. Break in Your Shoes
It can be so tempting to leave your amazing, beautiful new wedding shoes until the day of the wedding, in case you scuff or damage them. Don’t do this! Wear them around the house to make sure they’re broken in and comfortable (or less painful...) ahead of the big day.
8. Set up a Bridal Emergency Kit
Make sure you have a kit set aside with emergency makeup, breath mints, lip gloss, flat shoes, hairspray and whatever else you may need throughout the course of the day.
9. Stash a Tissue in Your Bouquet
If you’re an emotional person, you’ll be thankful for that secret tissue when you reach the altar. It also works well if you have really bad allergies.
10. Take Some Time Out
In sounds crazy, but make sure you set aside five or ten minutes in your day to spend some time with your partner to reflect on just what is going on around you — it’ll help you take it all in!
