How to Plan Your Wedding At Work

Planning Your Wedding at Work and Getting Away With It.

Regardless of what we think would be ideal, not all bride-to-bes have the luxury of taking time off work to plan their wedding. Whether you mean to or not, some of - and for some women, all - of your wedding will get planned during your work hours. The following article provides some tips on how you can best plan your wedding while balancing your work responsibilties.

1. Plan on your breaks. Whether that means hopping over to the baker for a cake tasting on your lunch break or making follow up calls during your twenty minute afternoon break. It’s your break, do what you want! *Note: If you plan right, a trip to the caterer for a tasting can double as your lunch!

2. Limit your planning time. Try not to check your email in the morning when you get to work because you might get sidetracked sending and answering wedding-related emails, and an hour or two will be gone before you know it! If you must do the planning right then and there, limit yourself to five or ten minutes, then get back to the real world and your job.

3. Take a personal day to plan and get things finished. Of course, you do not have to do it every week! But you would be surprised how much you can accomplish in a single day if you are productive. Look at it this way: you can spend one day getting ten to-do things crossed off your list, or, one hour every morning at work for the next month trying to plan, picking up where you left off the day before.

4. Don’t talk weddings at work. Even if you aren’t planning during work hours, people will think you are. Not to mention, you’ll drive the majority of the men nuts, anger a few women, and make the rest of the ladies jealous. So unless you work in the wedding and event planning industry, zip it while you’re on the clock!

5. Take the last few days leading up to your wedding off from work. You’ll still have a list a mile long of things to finish, and you can’t hardly focus on anything that doesn’t have to do with your wedding. Do your boss, your coworkers, and yourself a favor and give yourself a break! If you aren’t going to be productive at work, you might as well be productive doing wedding stuff!

Best of all, use your judgment. If you think you cannot manage to be planning while you’re working, don’t try!

This is will help keep everything in one place - to-do lists, contact information of caterers, cake-makes, florists etc, and it can also serve as a scrapbook of ideas for bridal gown design, flowers, themes and centerpieces.

After the wedding, the binder becomes a keepsake of many memories. You'll not regret getting a wedding planning book binder.

The Seven Secrets to Help You Select Your Perfect Bridal Gown

A wedding is a beautiful event where two people are united by taking vows to be together and for each other for the rest of their lives. The bride and groom enters into wedded union believing that it will last forever. They want to share their happiness with others through the wedding celebrate. This is why most brides (and grooms) make that extra effort in ensuring that the wedding is as memorable as possible. Today, we focus on one aspect (of many) aspects that requires thought and consideration - that is, the selection of the bridal gown.

We have compiled seven tips that will help you select your perfect bridal gown. Keeping them in mind when you go shopping will help you make the right bridal gown decision that will have you looking your best on your wedding day!

1. The complexion of the bride is the most important point to consider when choosing the bridal gown. Women who are on the fairer side should wear dark colors while women who are more on the dusky, tanned or dark side should use light colors, pastels are nice. This is because a contrast in the color of the bridal gown tends to enhance the beauty of the bride.

2. Another point to look out for when choosing the wedding gown is to choose a gown that matches the color of the bridegroom’s attire and your hairstyle. This is because since both of you will be the center of the show, it proves to be wiser on your part to collaborate your colors so that you look both harmonious and stand out from the crowd. In addition to this, the color of the bridal gown has to match the jewelry you intend to wear for the wedding.

3. Of course, your budget is an important factor in choosing your wedding gown. If you have a tight budget, make sure that you first allocate a certain amount of money for the bridal gown and choose the gown that falls within this range. However if you have money to spend, you can always go in for any designer wear. There is a huge collection of designer wear available for you to choose from in malls and designer stores.

4. Instead of choosing a plain bridal gown, you can make your gown more special by choosing wedding gowns having traditional wedding embellishments. Examples of such embellishments are a bell shaped skirt with a lace skirting or perhaps a modern wedding gown made of satin and decorated with lots of frills. It is up to you to choose the right bridal gown for the wedding.

5. If you are having a theme wedding, you will also have to keep the theme in mind when choosing the bridal gown. This is because different theme weddings call for different types of bridal gowns. It will not look right wearing a modern fitting bridal gown at a traditional church wedding; so keep this point in mind when choosing your bridal gown.

6. If you find it a bit difficult choosing your bridal gown, you could use suggestions from friends and family. This is because some bridal gowns may look great on a magazine, but will not look good on you. In fact, if you can afford it you could contact a consultant who will be able to decide which gown fits your body and age.

7. Take the fabric of the bridal gown into consideration when choosing your bridal gown. It is better to wear light weight clothes in summer while silk or satin are preferable for winter season. Choose necklines that suit your figure too as the neckline and your jewelry are the center of attraction when you walk down the aisle.

Taking these seven tips into consideration will help you select the perfect bridal gown for your wedding. And you will surely be the center of attention in the wedding, as you should be!

Weddings, Weddings, Weddings!

I am an endless romantic, who had great fun planning my own wedding last year. Since then, I've discovered a passion for wedding planning, having helped a few of my friends and friends of friends plan their own wedding events. Of course, I've only done this on an informal basis, and not for money! However, I hope my readers will gain some beneficial wedding planning, tips and ideas for this site.

Please feel free to send me your comments to me at weddingproposalsite[at] I will also be sending out informational books on wedding planning, and if you are interested in getting them, please feel free to send me a note; an empty email is fine.

The following poem below for me epitomizes what marriage is all about:

When You Are Old

When you are old and gray and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true;
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face.
And bending down beside the glowing bars
Murmur, a little sadly, how love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And his his face amid a crowd of stars.

W. B. Yeats (1865-1939)
