6 Days to Take Off for Your Wedding

April 19, 2016 lists the 6 crucial days to take off to help you effectively and efficiently plan your wedding. For those brides and grooms who juggle full-time jobs, families, social lives, fitness, and still manage to enjoy personal quiet time, this article is perfect for you.

Keep the nail-nibbling at a minimum by following their advice, but below I share my advice on other days to take off that are sure to help keep you sane, suave, and surprisingly calm during the months leading up to your wedding day!


It’s common for venues and vendors to be closed on Mondays (some wedding vendors take Sunday and Monday off as their “weekend”), so catching a caterer, DJ, or bakery on a Tuesday would help ensure you and your ideas are at the center of their attention!


So, I’m slipping this one in, not as a day to take off, but to strategize wedding ideas with your honey. Let’s call them “Wedding Wednesdays” – has a nice ring to it, huh?

Just because you’re able to Pinterest every other hour during the work day doesn’t mean your honey is able to keep up with your momentum. So think about setting aside a couple of hours on Wednesday evenings to sip your favorite relaxing beverage and unload your thoughts for the week. Your honey will thank you for the other 6 days of relatively low wedding planning stress.


Have you ever bought nail polish online only to see it in person and think, hmm, that’s a bit different? The same goes for picking your wedding flowers. Imagine how much more enjoyable your appointment could go if you were able to see, touch, and inhale the fragrance of the flowers in your centerpieces and bouquets months your wedding day?

Florists planning events for the weekend tend to have flowers at their studio the Thursday prior. So you’ll be in luck if the wedding they’re prepping for is using the same flower you’re interested in. (Thank you Lindsey and Debbie of The Stalk Market in Downtown McKinney for inspiring this tip).

Happy planning!
