5 Brilliant Tricks to Make Wedding Planning a Breeze

We’re sure you've heard it before: “it’s all in the details.” When it comes to planning a wedding, this cliché could not be more accurate. There is a frighteningly long list of horrors that can occur on your wedding day and throughout the planning process, and unless you have planned numerous amounts of weddings like we have, you might want to check out this list of brilliant tricks to make your wedding planning easy. These ideas are simple and seem obvious to us, but if you are like many of our VIB’s (Very Important Brides), odds are you haven’t thought of these seemingly no-brainer ideas. Check out these solutions that will no doubt make your wedding day go much more smoothly and ease up your planning along the way.



1. We have selected this as our number one trick because every time we mention it, we hear, “WHY didn't I think of that!”  Number your RSVP cards so each one corresponds to a guest.  Odds are you will have at least one RSVP come back illegible or filled out incorrectly.  Do yourself a favor and mark each card with a number, letter, or something fun that pertains to your theme.  If you want to be incognito, pick up an invisible ink pen. You can thank us later.

2. If you forgot to pick up a handy little envelope sealer from your local office supply store, all you have to do is take a bowl of water and a foam brush or sponge, and you can save your tongue the awful envelope glue flavoring and a Seinfeld incident (for those of you who know).

3. Go green and save the Earth and your wallet by purchasing secondhand wedding items from a site like Recycle Your Wedding. You can find décor, favors, dresses, and much more.  After your wedding, you can re-list your items and get back some of your money.

4. Pick up some tiny veil weights to keep your headpiece from flying away and possibly ruining your gorgeous hairdo that you paid good money to have done!

5. If you are receiving cash gifts or money for the honeymoon, be sure to educate yourself on your bank's polices for cashing and depositing checks for a joint checking account.  It would be pretty awful to receive checks that you can’t deposit and then have to ask the guests to rewrite a new one.

Good tips! I especially love the idea of renting secondhand decor. I'm not sure I would have thought of it, but it seems like a great way to save some money.

Great tips!
