Wedding Planning

Lists for All

Personally I love a good list. I’m zealous when it comes to ticking things off. In fact, I’d go so far as to add on tasks that I’ve done just to create a new tick. Task-orientated, control-freak, or just a little bit bonkers, it helps keep me sane. For all of you in the midst of wedding planning I think a good list (or two) is a must. You just need to choose which one is right for you…

Favourite Whiteboards

Anyone who’s ever worked in an office with me will know how much I love a whiteboard. It’s the ultimate highly visual boom-I’m–here kind of list. I love that everyone gets to see hat needs done and all get to tick or wipe (depending on which way you roll). Some whiteboards I’ve got my beady eye on are the Jago MATA02 Whiteboard Drywipe with Pen Tray (sounds like something from Starwars), this groovy little desk whiteboard from Etsy, and the classic Scribble ‘Super Smooth’ Drywipe Magnetic Whiteboard with its silver aluminium frame. Don’t tell me you’re not even a little bit excited by these.
Pros of the Whiteboard: Highly visual, communal and lovely pen action
Cons of the Whiteboard: Accidental wiping, won’t fit in your bag and the need for team-buy-in

I used to work with a girl (we’ll call her Rosie for the fun of it) who had thee most gorgeous, colour-co-ordinated set of notebooks – one for each project she worked on. It was list utopia amidst the corporate humdrum. Rosie is now a primary teacher. Brides-to-be (and Grooms, although I suspect this one’s more about the girls), just think of all the fun you could have with your wedding colour-cordinated notebooks.
Here’s some lush ones I am coveting. Anthropolgie’s Happy Notes, Paperchase’s LoveBirds Notebook, The Apica Yellow Notebook and these cute handmade wedding note books from Etsy – The Personalised Engagement Notebook and the Kraft Paper Notebook made from all recycled paper.
Pros of the Notebook: Pretty all the way, can be used to match your wedding styling, will fit in your bag easily
Cons of The Notebook: Losable, harder to share ideas, if not looked after could get messy

Excel spreadsheet

Lastly there’s the spreadsheet. I must admit to being less offay with the computerised list, although I absolutely see the benefits (especially when it comes to wedding planning). I know there are many couples that would be totally lost without it and it can be used to generate tasks for different members of your bridal party (if you’re feeling the need to organise them a little).
Pros of the Spreadsheet: Backed-up, trackable, zccessible from multiple locations
Cons of The Spreadsheet: Less pretty for those of us visually-wired and you can’t staple anything to it…
Working through a list? What works best for you and why? We’d love to hear what’s helping you tackle the wed min. Alie x

& Rufflets Hotel

Home is definitely where the heart is for Lesley & Sam. After getting engaged at their own home, they celebrated with a Scottish garden wedding at the groom’s parents’ house in Angus. It was a day packed full of handmade and personal details, with a great team of local suppliers pulling out all the stops to create this super pretty, colourful countryside wedding.
