My 8 Top Tips To Be Organized

wedding. Do not under estimate how long it will take you to write all of

all of the replies. A filing box by where you keep the post is an easy
way to keep all of the replies together and a new file on your inbox for
those emailing their replies.
- Set up a spreadsheet with all the
names on the left that you have sent invites to and have columns for
menu choices, dietary requirements, children etc. This makes it loads
easier when you have to let the caterer know what is going on!
- Rather than having a manual
system you could have your own wedding website where you have all of
your guests put in their own information. That way if they don't get the
main course they were wanting they only have themselves to blame! Plus

- More and more couples are sending out their wedding invitations via
email, which means that you can save yourselves lots of money and have
every report possible at the click of your mouse. Just remember to back
