Tips for Working Brides
How to Plan a Wedding and Work at the Same Time

Make a plan for the next day’s lunch hour or plan a week in advance. Schedule phone calls to vendors, errands, short shopping trips, or reply/send emails to vendors, wedding attendants and family members.

Bring your lunch to work. This will save you at least 20 minutes wasted from standing in line to buy your lunch. And, an extra benefit is the money you will save!

Delegate as much as you can. You have TWO full-time jobs now, so enlist the help of friends and family.

Save up those vacation days. You will need them for your honeymoon and a few days before the wedding.

Use email as much as possible. This greatly reduces ‘phone tag’ and the chance that your caterer will call about menu choices when your boss is in your office.

When work gets busy and wedding planning kicks into high gear, your best defense is to stay organized. Diligently utilize a system that works for you: index cards, notebooks, a software program, etc.

If you begin to fall behind in your work load, go to work an hour earlier. Much can be accomplished in that ‘quiet’ hour when others are not there to interrupt. | p. 815-739-9937 | f. 815-754-5261
