Happy Friday lovely bride, I hope you had a great week and have some amazing plans for this weekend. As the past few weeks have been very fast paced for Paul and I with the rebrand, new website (great competition coming your way next week 😉 ) and the big Trinity Wedding Fayre, I have decided to take the whole weekend off and to spend it relaxing with Paul doing whatever we fancy. This will probably include a few relaxing walks, chill out time on the sofa catching up on our favourite series, plenty of good food and wine, and a little spa break in the lovely Ayush Spa ;).

If you are planning on spending a little bit of time on your wedding planning, here is part 3 of my series of great resources and tools for wedding planning that every busy bride should know about. The previous installments can be viewed here – part 1 & part 2.

6, Wedding website

Centralise all the information that your guests need to know about on your personal and private “wedding website”. These can include things such as date and times, gift list, travel arrangements, local hotels to stay in, times and places of important events, itinerary)

There are great templates out there designed specifically for you to setup a basic website for your wedding, fast and very easily. It might be a little bit “fiddly and techy” so why don’t you give this to your fiancee to look into and look after (he will probably even enjoy it). This will save hours and hours of work as you will not have to be answering emails from friends and relatives asking the same questions again and again – save yourself a lot of time and keep all the relevant information there – then just send the link out and people can look for any info on the website and you can easily update it as you go along.

For more information and some unique uses for your wedding website you can read this post from Squarespace on OnceWed

And for some lovely designs and inspiration you can read this post from Minted.

7, Planners

If like me you have a mild obsession with stationery, notebooks and fountain pens, then this is for you. I totally get it, having something tangible, that you can pick up and take with you, especially if its wrapped in a nice moleskin or leather cover is so nice. And especially with the amazing selection available out there nowadays. You will probably know of quite a few to choose from, but I have included a little selection of little beauties to consider.

Passion Planner – my absolute favourite, that I actually use on a day to day basis. Beautiful, simple to use with plenty of space for everything – jotting, notes, big plan strategies, day to day schedule etc.

A few more that you might like to consider are The Flagship Collection; The Simplified Planner; Erin Condren

and a few other nice worth mentioning are here, here, here and here
