When you’re right in the middle of planning a wedding, it’s often difficult to find time to hang out with your family and friends. This can leave those special people with more than a few questions, from what type of wedding gift you want to the type of wedding you’re planning to have. There are a few great ways to keep your friends and family in the loop while planning your wedding.
Registering for gift items is one of the best ways to keep your family and friends updated. This gives them the option to choose a gift for you that they love, but that you will truly appreciate. Remember to select a wide variety of items with different prices so guests have a range of gifts to choose from. So, you might register for a very nice and costly cookware set, but don’t forget to register for kitchen towels and pot holders as well. Finally, link to your bridal registry on your social media sites and in your email signature so family and friends can find it easily.
Create a Wedding Website
One of the greatest ways to allow friends and family to follow your progress and stay in the loop is a wedding website. A wedding website typically tells a couple’s story from the moment they met to the decision to tie the knot. It may also include wedding event information and tips, as well as information on the process of planning the wedding. This can be a fun way to de-stress during your wedding planning, and let everyone else follow along with your planning.
Rely on Your Maid of Honor
Your maid of honor traditionally has the role of planning and informing everyone as to how the wedding is coming along, what to expect, etc. Work with your maid of honor to make sure the proper save the date cards and invitations go out, to know who has RSVP’d, and to make sure your wedding day is all you want it to be.
By taking these steps, you can ensure that your family and friends stay informed and that your day is every bit as special as you want it to be.
