Where To Start Fresh Before Your Wedding

  • Make a new email address for the wedding

    This keeps you organized and will save you from hours of inbox sifting. 

  • Come up with a unique hashtag to use throughout the weekend

    This has become an increasingly popular wedding trend and, believe it or not, is a great way to find some "hidden gem" photos taken by guests that you may have otherwise missed.

  • Setup a wedding website  

    Wedding websites are a great way to provide your guests with any information they might need from hotel and transportation details to restaurant recommendations. Believe us, it makes your life much easier having everything they need to know in one place.

  • Get a rewards credit card to reap the benefits of all of your wedding expenses

    We're talking honeymoon miles! We recommend signing up for a rewards program with a larger airline like Delta or United to ensure your honeymoon destination is on their map. 

  • Keep your passport as is, though make sure it is not expired

    Not quite a fresh start, but it's important to know that you’ll want to keep your passport in your old name until you have time to change your name formally. 

  • Create a list of priorities with your fiancé 

    This will get you both on the same page, help you prioritize what’s most important to you, and help you decide where to splurge.

  • Buy a wedding planning book

         We love Mindy Weiss’, The Wedding Book.

  • Get the inside scoop

    Talk to other married couples to see what they loved most about their wedding and what they regret not doing.
