Ilana Rubin of Perfect The Event, is here today as a contributor to the Prismm blog to share her wedding planning organization tips with us!
Having a wedding planner can truly take the stress away from the wedding planning process. However, not everyone has a wedding planner and even if they do, it’s still important to stay organized on your own!
Wedding couples need to be conscious for themselves of many of the crucial planning components nd details, regardless of the assistance,reminders and checklists provided to them.
Keep tabs on your payment schedule. Yes, your planner will most likely remind you of payments due, but try to mark the payment due dates on your own personal calendar in advance as well. Doing so will help you to prepare financially without being blindsided by lump sum due dates.
Use your calendar. You want to keep track of your vendor appointments in your own calendar and it will pair perfectly with the reminders from your wedding planner.
Make use of storage containers. Storage containers are perfect for the items you need to be set up on the day of your affair. items If you are putting the items into boxes, make sure to label each one. Try keeping “Guest Book Table” items together, signage together, etc. The better you are with labeling, the easier it is to pack up for you at the end of the night. Plus it makes it easy for you to find certain items the next day when you are unpacking.
Keeping track of your guest list can also be crucial. Using an online tool like Prismm can make this task so super simple! This way you can have columns for each guest to include: RSVP (yes or no), meal selection, and even if guests are bringing a plus one. Prismm will allow you to count your attendees more efficiently, keep tally of who still needs to respond, and give you proper space for any notes such as dietary restrictions.
It never hurts to have your own folder on your computer and physical binder dedicated to your wedding. You can store the Prismm reports that you have printed out, appointment dates, receipts, and anything else you receive all in one place.
Organization is really the key to planning a stress-free, wonderful event.
