You’re engaged! Congratulations! Planning your big day is going to be awesome! However, if you and your fiancé both work full time jobs, the planning could become overwhelming. We have a few tips to keep you sane during this busy time and help to keep you on track while not falling behind at work.
- Create an email address just for your wedding
Creating an email account will help you keep all those important emails in one place. Share the account with your fiancé so you both have access to the details. You won’t have to search through your everyday life emails to find what you’re looking for. You can also get really creative with the email account name. Who knows, maybe the email account name will become your wedding hashtag!
2. Make a list
Write down a list of all that needs to be done. Prioritize it depending on how long each item will take or by level of importance. When it’s time to take your break during the work day, pick something on the list to work on. Little by little, you will start checking items off that list. Make sure you take your full break so you don’t feel rushed when making decisions. Don’t get distracted by other applications when you are tackling the list…Put down the Pokemon Go.
3. Create a spreadsheet
