In the beginning of this endeavor, I saw it all as fun and games.
“I like this. This would be cute. We could totally do this. I love these colors. I love these colors even more.”
After diving into my first task of invites, I see that I need to be more strategic in my planning. That is when I did a little research and found this nifty guide:
Using this, I made myself a clear list to begin with. These are research topics and questions for the bride:
- Reception Area
Some of these may be simple since this is a cruise wedding and they aim to make that easier. However, I cannot neglect the fact that all of these topics need tended to.
A few pieces of collateral that I need to create include the following:
- “Just Married” sign
- “Reserved Table” signs
I anticipate this to go over more successfully now that I have organized my thoughts and tasks.
I will make a phone call to the bride tomorrow to discuss a few things. I also feel emailing her will be helpful for her to respond to with our busy lives and the answers that involve more research.
