How To Organize Your Modern Wedding

Multi-tasking comes easily to you. You always have your life under control. That is until you began to plan your wedding. No matter how good you are, a wedding is a monumental task.

To plan a wedding you have to contact different business people in different companies and coordinate their arrival. If one of these key players in the wedding fails, the domino effect will begin. So how do you rope this in and ensure you have your dream wedding?

Time to call in the team

A wedding planner is a must. Even wedding planners hire a wedding planner when they plan a wedding. You have enough to do to keep you running. Let the wedding planner do what she does and you have time to iron out the details.

Next, you need to contact a dress supplier like Azazie. You may need traditional bridesmaid dresses in a color like baby blue or blush pink, or you may want an elegant bridesmaid color like champagne or black. Azazie can accommodate you. They are there to serve you, so just reach out to them. They are unique in that they will let you pay a small (really small) deposit and send bridesmaids dresses to you to try on at home. You can save a lot of time and money taking advantage of online services. The sooner the bridesmaid dresses are out of the way, the more you can focus on you.

Define Bridesmaid

Somewhere along the line, brides became confused about the duties of their bridesmaids. Your bridal party is made up of people you love and respect, who are willing to help you pull your wedding together.

This doesn’t mean they are to be treated like hired help. Nor does it mean they are to ignore their own responsibility to help you. Make your selections carefully. If one of your maids in waiting has young children, you cannot expect her to have time to run errands for you.

Assign duties

Remember to be kind, thoughtful, and polite. Remember to thank them when they have taken their time and effort for you. The function of a bridesmaid is to attend to the needs of the bride. While the majority of the duties fall on the maid of honor, each member of the bridal party should be willing to assist. Whether that means mailing invitations, arranging flower donations to a nursing home after the wedding, or picking up your shoes from the mall. Ask your bridesmaids to help you and assign them duties as they have time to help.

Being organized for your wedding is not just a good thing, it is a critical thing. The organized bride has everything she needs at hand when she needs it. She is not searching for a necessary item that slipped her mind.

Be organized, but cut yourself some slack. If some little something goes wrong, you have two choices, laugh it off or ruin the honeymoon screaming and crying. The second option usually doesn’t end well. Life isn’t perfect, but you can be perfectly happy with a little effort.

Business

Treat the preparations for your wedding like a business. Keep a binder with contracts, rental agreements, recipes, and names with phone numbers. Make sure you have all of the dates, times, and names of people you are dealing with.

If something happens to you like an illness or unexpected trip, someone can pick up the binder and know exactly where you are with wedding plans.

Being organized for your wedding is critical. You only get one shot at this eventful day. Good or bad, it cannot be redone. So work with your people and keep your finger on the wedding pulse. You will earn the perfect wedding of your dreams.

Kimmylea, the other day I was reading my journal and I wrote about meeting you for the first time. Laura & I loved you then and it only came to fruition! Keep up the amazing work!

Zach A.

Thank you so much for all that you did. Even through all of the changes I put you through, you were very professional and helpful. Everyone loved the designs and how I pulled them into the other aspects of my wedding. Thanks!

Adrienne & Greg D.

Will and I cannot thank you enough for all you did to make our wedding weekend so perfect and run so smoothly (or at least that I know of!!). From the first time we met (and even at Laurel's wedding), I knew we would be in good hands. You truly know how to make a bride feel comfortable and at ease.

Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We appreciate all of your help and advice more than you will ever know. The day was perfect and we have you to thank for that!

Zach & Jamee J.

Thank you so much for everything. I don't know what I would have done without you. Everything was perfect! You can 100% count on both my sister's weddings!

I get asked a lot who does our family pictures, Christmas cards, and plans all of my personal and work parties so I thought it would be much easier to share their Facebook page. They are AMAZING and they aren't just Omaha area focused. If you ever need event planning, photography, photo books, invitations, etc. they are wonderful and family owned and operated! Gotta love supporting a local small business!:)

Thanks again for all your help with the wedding and making the invites. We got a ton of compliments on them. Ben and I are so blessed to have you in our lives and are grateful for your friendship. Looking forward to celebrating with you at the wedding.
