Get Organized

Yes… you have to be organized in order to reduce anxiety and stress. Weddings, like most events, have many moving parts. On game-day, you’ll need to have your decor items labeled, someone in charge of seating, an aunt to cut the cake, and staff to serve your guests. Having these details in a spreadsheet and/or notebook is critical.

Organize your event, and the rest will follow. These are the tools we like to use most: AllSeated.com; WeddingWire.com; Honeybook.com; and Google Suite.

My daily planner

My daily planner is a year-in-planning calendar, which has a full month page layout and then 7-day week daily on the following pages. I can project next year’s events on a full year calendar, to place a “W” next to weddings and obligations so that I don’t inadvertently double book.

I find great calendars at HomeGoods or TJMaxx. They are my go-to’s for office accessories. I always find a cute cover and matching accessories at a slightly lower price, then if I had purchased them elsewhere. There are many resources online to keep you up to date. Google suite or Office365 have great calendars, which can be integrated with other applications for syncing.

“Be your best self always. Treat everyone with respect, love, and compassion.
