Today I am sharing quick tips on how to have a smooth planning process. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the beautiful options and vendors available when you are in the early stages of planning. Taking these small steps can help seriously reduce the stress and make communicating with your vendors much easier!
- Know what is most important to you and your fiance. Setting priorities before any initial planning has begun will help to guide and narrow your choices. It will also reduce your likelihood of experiencing peer pressure when you’ve got a lot of opinions and options coming your way.
- Be organized. Whether you want to keep digital files or store all information in a planner, just get organized so you can stay consistent through the whole planning process. You’ll be surprised how many times you need to access the same documents throughout the process.
- Gather information ahead of meetings. Feel free to go ahead and start researching vendors that you are interested in and gather those proposals, contracts or invoices to share with your planner. This helps your team to see where you are in your planning process and help you to identify action items or follow-up needs.
