I’m not going to lie: I was a bit of a renegade bride. I picked the first dress I found (it looked fabulous though!), I insisted on only having a Maid of Honor, and I pretty much went with the flow of what everyone else thought would be a good idea. Don’t get me wrong; I put in my two cents if something someone put out there was ridiculous. But other than that, I had made up my mind to be a stress-free bride.
For the most part, it worked out well. Maybe my then-fiancé was more involved than most. Or maybe everyone who was involved in my wedding just went above and beyond to make the event amazing. I probably just lucked out, but I did enjoy the days up to my wedding a lot more than I would have if I was freaking out about every little thing.
I’m not saying to leave your wedding day up to everyone else. It could, and probably would, be disastrous! What I am saying is that you should make your big day as stress free as possible so that you can enjoy it. And the best way to make that happen: proper planning, of course!
One of the coolest things I’ve come across since I got married is the wedding website. There are tons of options out there, but the concepts are all basically the same. With a wedding website you can share your love story, announce your plans, and provide guests with all the information that will help them get to the wedding on time.
I’ve also recently found out that one of the most tactful ways to make sure everyone knows where you’re registered at is to do so through your wedding website. You can even provide direct links if you don’t want your guests to get lost in cyber-space!
So, since there are so many options for wedding websites out there, I’ve taken the liberty of finding a comparison chart of many of them, with information on pricing, free trials, and number of pages, so you can figure out which one is right for you. It might take a little time now, but if it saves you some stress in the long run, it’ll be completely worth it!
