Planning a big party such as a wedding, quinceañera or sweet sixteen reception? If you are, my condolences, lol. But in all honesty, this can be extensively more stressful than filing your taxes by April 15th. With that being said, I figured a post with some helpful links was in order. Check out these handy sites/tips for sparing yourself a little work on the big day.
First Up – Get A Plan
Let’s start this trip at the very beginning. Even the best of plans can get derailed pretty easily. The best way to prevent that is start with a checklist and a plan of action. Botanical Paperworks has put together a fabulous FREE printable checklist/planner that covers all your bases. It starts with budgeting help and then walks you through a timeline for activities/tasks as well as help with invitations and reception decor. Hint—–make sure to check out all of Invite Bling’s super-fantastical items to help with making your event MAGNIFICENT!

Next Stop – Addressing Those Invites
In a world of eclectic families, this chart from Park Slope Press is extremely helpful. It walks you through envelope addressing in one of the most simplistic methods I’ve seen.
Last But Not Least – Seating Arrangements Made Easy
We all know that WeddingWire.com is a super helpful site, but something I just recently came across is their tool for charting out your seating arrangement. It seems to be pretty easy to use and works off your existing guest list. Just drag and drop guests to the appropriate table. Bing, bang, boom….done! Then once you have it completed, you can easily share it with your event planner or reception venue. To check it out, click on the link below.
