The more you get into planning, the more learn (obviously!). But wouldn’t you like to skip the learning curve and just get all the little tips and know-hows up front? I wish I had… So I’ve decided each week, I’ll post my helpful tip. It may be one that’s obvious or one you would have never thought of. Either way, I think it would be helpful and hopefully my readers find it just that. This week I’ll start with this tip: Set up a wedding specific email and phone number.
The email is probably a common known idea, but the phone number was a great one I learned about! When all things wedding related are over and done with, you can just close both accounts. I used Gmail and Google Voice – both are free and easy to use. With a Voice account, you can choose to have it ring to your cell phone or just go to your Voice account where you can play messages or send/receive texts. This has been great when attending wedding expos or sending all the inquiries for quotes, info, etc. I’ve actually used it for other things non-wedding where I really don’t want people having my real number… LOL I highly suggest doing this. It also helps keep your regular email account cleaner. I literally receive about 30 emails each day to my wedding email account.
