Designated Email

Keep losing all your quotes from suppliers in your heaving inbox? Don’t lose important wedding information by creating a designated email. All your wedding related emails will be in one easy to find place that you can both have access to. You can also email yourself screenshots of inspiration you may come across. Plus, it saves you from getting distracted by wedding admin when you have other things to do.

Use Social Media

Social media is a fantastic way of finding suppliers and getting inspiration. From Pinterest to Instagram there are loads of free resources out there. Our top tip is to select popular wedding hashtags and follow them on Instagram. This relatively new feature will deliver wedding inspo direct to your feed without following loads of accounts.

The Spreadsheet

We know it’s a bit of a given that you will need a spreadsheet to keep track of expenses if you aren’t hiring a planner to manage the wedding budget for you. We do have an extra bit of advice – use percentages. Once you have established a budget you should allocate what money will be spent where in percentages. This visual way of organising funds really helps you stick to the plan.
