Wanted: More Hours in a Day

To me, time is something that we don't have enough of...there are not enough hours in the day! I am a huge proponent of using time wisely. Whether it involves blogging on my lunch break, going for a run and taking my dog, or making enough dinner for lunch the next day, I will do everything I can to "kill two birds with one stone". It perplexes me when people waste their valuable time!

When planning a wedding, time is precious, especially if you have other priorities, such as a job, school, or children. One of the reasons that I started this blog was to help others who don't have the time to search the internet for inspiration. I spent hours scouring the internet, reading through blogs, and perusing TheKnot to find inspiration for my wedding. I found amazing ideas, and mostly all of them were found on blogs, but the amount of time that I spent to find them was enormous!

Now my passion for weddings has led me to pursue a career in the wedding industry. I want to focus on helping others to maximize their time spent planning their wedding, but also make sure they enjoy it!

Time management and organization are crucial when planning a wedding. Just a few tips when it comes to these things:
  • It is wise to have a planner for your appointments, whether it's on an electronic device or a physical planner. Combine your personal appointments, wedding appointments, and business appointments in one planner so you are able to keep track of everything.
  • Try to set aside a specific time of day for certain things if you're finding yourself overridden with things to do. An example could be doing wedding related things from 7 pm to 8 pm only.
  • Have a place to jot down ideas, questions, or things you think of. Keep a mini notebook in your purse, send yourself emails, or have a place on your phone to jot things down.
It's all about managing your time wisely and keeping your thoughts and ideas organized.

These are some items that will help make your life a bit easier. We can certainly all benefit from organizing our lives!

If you feel like you're spending too much time searching for inspiration and ideas for your wedding, I would love to help out! Just drop me a line!
