5 Brilliant Wedding Planning Tricks
“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, so you might want to check out this list of brilliant tricks to avoid those nightmares. These ideas are simple, but if you are like many of our VIB’s (Very Important Brides), odds are you haven’t thought of these seemingly no-brainer tips. 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. 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.
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.
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!
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.
