After our wedding, I wasn’t sure what to do. I missed the planning and the constant conversations with my best friends, but I knew our life was just continuing on with the next adventure.

    Trello For Wedding Planning

    Staying organized during the wedding planner process isn’t always easy, in-fact, it’s almost never easy. Things sometimes get lost in the shuffle, and that is okay, but being able to stay on top of things will cause less stress and really help to get things done in a timely manner. When I was planning my own wedding, I kept things organized in a few different ways. I had a Pinterest board to get ideas going, another one that had completed project ideas, a binder full of notes and contracts and the lifesaver above all was my Wedding Planning Trello Board.

    {Volpes Tie The Knot} The Wedding Favors

    When it came time to decide our wedding favors, I had about 50 different ideas. Originally we wanted etched wine glasses and mason jars with our wedding logo, but we realized how time consuming and expensive that could get, so we switched gears a little bit. In the end I was still go happy with our favors, and some of them were totally useful during the wedding as well! I’m going to be totally unoriginal explaining the first few wedding favors we had, and that is okay, because we loved them. There are a ton of couples doing doozie favors, but we still jumped on the train and ordered them…
