Custom Wedding PLanner

Organization is the key to a great wedding no matter your style. No matter whether you are going all out and getting a wedding planner or are on a budget, being organized will make or break your day. With some great tips, a little know how, and some FAB Etsy finds any engaged person can organize the Offbeat Wedding of their dreams.

Know your budget.  Don't fight it; embrace it. Working within your means is something to be proud of and a goal you can achieve. There are so many websites and books out there for the budget wedding you will have no trouble getting what you want for less. When I got married my father gave me a small budget and I was never more proud then when I could tell him I stayed below my budget and gave him money back.

The 'I Will Get It Done Soon' NotePad

Make a list of what needs to be done. Don't know what to do?  Buy an wedding planner notebook; it's the best investment you could make! Separate the list into what you and your partner can do, add a separate category for thing to get help with. Have that list ready for when friends and family say, "What can I do to help?"  Let them help; it will make them feel like they are part of your happy day.

Mini Chalkboard Calendar

Finding fun ways to keep on track with your day to day activities will help you not feel overwhelmed. Find places to add fun organizers like this mini chalkboard calender that can go anywhere. Don't have a fancy phone with the latest gadgety apps?  Then try using online reminder systems like www.googlecalender.com or www.memotome.com that will send you a reminder through your email. Remember to use your social media to keep your wedding party up to date on important events.

Last try "Storybooking" your ideas, make all your ideas into a fun college that you can look at and add to or change as you need to. This fun cork board would be great to have a central place to post all the parts that will come together to make your Offbeat Wedding Dreams come true. When all is done you will have a great graphic reminder of your day.
