As you may remember from an earlier post, I was recently the Maid of Honor in my best friend’s wedding.
Being the Maid of Honor or any role in a wedding party is an honor and I wanted to make sure my focus was on helping her make sure the day was everything she wanted it to be.
I have previous experience planning conferences, networking events and recruiting socials. I enjoy the creativity and attention to detail involved in planning events and would easily spend any moment of free time making To Do lists, budgets and DIY crafts
The anticipation of an upcoming event is really energizing, but I fear the feeling after the event is over – of “what do I do now?”
I’m excited to have an answer to that question…..
It’s time to plan my own wedding!!
Since our engagement, our family & friends have been notified in person, on the phone, and over photo-filled text messages and the first questions people always ask is “have you set a date?”
The date is set in stone (venue contracts and deposits)now, but do I need to send Save the Dates to announce this?
As a “Weekday Accountant” I am budget conscious and realize that the wedding industry offers lots of beautiful things to buy that are not necessities to a happy marriage or even a gorgeous reception.
I’m wondering if Save the Dates fall into the unnecessary category?
They are cute!
Refrigerator Magnets serve as a reminder to guests
Out of town guests have a few months more notice
Need to finalize the guest list earlier
Date will be on invitation anyway
An added expense (even if you use budget-friendly Vistaprint)
