The Local Bride: Wedding Planning

Hey y’all,

Kara here. With the school year coming to an end, it’s been getting pretty hectic around here for this local bride. I am one tired teacher!

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I am a planning nerd. I love agendas, notebooks, and writing everything down so my thoughts don’t get jumbled—and maybe that’s my inner teacher showing.

People have asked me: "How do you stay on top of all your wedding to-dos?" And to be honest, lately, it feels like I’ve been slacking, but what helps keep me on track is my wedding planner—yes, the paper and pen kind.

As an engagement gift, my amazing friends and co-workers bought me a wedding planner to help stay organized throughout my planning.

Don’t get me wrong—I’m obsessed with my wedding apps. And I definitely use them for two very different things: the SAW app helps me find local vendors to hire, helps me keep track of my budget, and sends me helpful reminders throughout my day, while my wedding planner allows me to record it all. Think of it almost like a scrapbook—it’s something I’ll always have to look back on later.

If you find yourself in a planning slump, don’t worry; I’m pretty sure we’ve all been there. What really helps me stay organized and on top of everything is my planner. I actually look forward to writing my to-dos down and crossing things off my list.

Happy planning!

Until next time,
The Local Bride
