This week we'll cover some ideas for tasks to dole out during the planning stages, and next week we'll discuss jobs that family member's can handle on the wedding day. Even if you want to take care of the majority of the wedding planning yourself, you can still find small tasks for family members that want to help out. Sometimes giving an overly-helpful person a specific job to take care of will keep them from constantly pushing their ideas on you, while allowing them to feel useful. It also takes some of the more menial tasks off of your plate, freeing up your time to work on the big stuff.
After you've picked out your wedding invitations, decided on the wording, and placed the order, you still have to put all the pieces into the envelopes and address them. This is a wonderful task to put a group of family members on. They can set up an assembly line and get it all taken care of in a much more timely manner than you doing it all by yourself.
Once you have your guest list finalized, you need to gather current mailing addresses for everyone on that list. This is a perfect thing to delegate to a family member.
Craft Favors & Decor
If you have a lot of DIY projects planned for your wedding, don't you dare try to do it all by yourself! Even with the best time management, those things always seem to eat up more time than you would expect. Let your crafty family members get to work on these with you. They will love seeing their handiwork on the wedding day.
Help Plan a Bridal Shower
For those family members that are trying to influence the wedding planning decisions that you are making, let them plan a different party to take their mind off of your wedding decisions. They can host a family bridal shower and party-plan to their heart's content.
Gather Family Photos
Featuring family wedding photos at your ceremony or reception is a wonderful way to pay tribute to all of the love that both sides of your families have shared up until this day. Finding all of those photos can be time consuming though. Another family member will be able to take care of this for you while you work on other tasks.
Even the smallest task can make your family members feel like they are an important part of your special day at our scenic wedding venue near Knoxville. They get to feel like a part of "Team Wedding," and you get to take a few planning tasks off of your plate so that you can focus on the bigger stuff.
Next week, we'll conclude our Family Happiness Month-themed blogs with jobs that you can give family members on the actual wedding day. Country Jewell has some wonderful ideas so that both the bride's and the groom's families can be included on your special day.
