Lunch Break Wedmin
Shhh, don't tell the boss, but these handy online tools will help you plan your wedding from your desk
Do your Research
Create a to-do list – for you and him! – and jot down reminders, save website links or snap beautiful pictures for your mood board, all with the handy evernote.com. Plus, once you make your notes, they are accessible wherever you go, forever. So you can pull up all your ideas at work, on the train or share them when youʼre with suppliers – perfect.
Send Save the Dates
In as little as 15 minutes, you can create and email a ‘save the dateʼ to your guests from paperlesspost.com. Choose from a wide selection of chic designs by the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Kate Spade, Vera Wang, Liberty London and many more, or upload your own design and photo and make sure everyone has your big day in their diary.
Get Savvy with Seating
We love tablerrr.com, an online seating tool which allows you to create, edit and print your seating plan – no more spending hours moving Post-it notes around the floor! It also has a Smart Seating feature which automatically generates seating arrangements based on guestsʼ relationships, helping you keep tricky guests away from one another, for example, and putting noisy guests at the back of the room.
Nail your Beauty Regime
Thereʼs no need to share your request for a full bikini wax with the rest of the office anymore. Head to benefitcosmetics.com to book your pre-wedding wax, spray tan, manicure, facials and more in total privacy. And, while youʼre there, check out the customisable beauty kit, £67.60, where you can pick and choose your perfect big-day products.
Got a spare half an hour? Thatʼs enough time to create your wedding website complete with app at appycouple.com. Itʼs simple, speedy and stylish, and allows you to keep everyone organised by keeping track of RSVPs, clarifying travel arrangements with guests, photo sharing, running a countdown to the big day and much more.
Create your Playlist
If you both have extensive music libraries, why not hire some good quality sound equipment and create your own big day playlist using iTunes? Make separate playlists for the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and dancing, and keep in mind the flow, for example, planning plenty of up-beat tunes for the end of the night.
Order your Favours
Get creative with your favours and order some personalised marshmallows from
boomf.com. Itʼs quick and easy to choose from a selection of designs or upload your own photograph, which will be printed on either vanilla or strawberry flavoured marshmallows. Why not print guestsʼ names on them and use them as edible placecards? From £15 for nine marshmallows.
Introduce your Guests
Think your BFF would hit it off with the best man? With guesterly.com you can get everyone acquainted before the big day via a printed or online booklet. Upload your guest list, import pics of your friends and family, choose a design and add some fun facts. A digital flick book costs approx £80 – but donʼt forget to check with everyone first, so you use pictures everyone likes.
