Five Ways to Use Your Extra Hour

Happy daylight savings day! Today we are granted a whole extra hour. Sure, it may be tempting to sleep in, but you could be productive. If you’re up and about and ready to take on your extra hour, we’re right there with ya!

Go Over Your Budget

Crunching numbers can be boring, but you’ve got an extra hour so hey- buck up and get it done! Excel sheets are one of the easiest ways to have a financial snapshot of your wedding. If you’re not great with excel, grab a tech savvy friend or watch a few tutorials. It’s quite easy to make spreadsheets that will calculate all your expenses so you can keep track of spending.

Practice Your Looks

Do you know your best angle? Do you know your best smile? Take some time and check yourself out in the mirror! Have a set go-to pose for photos that you know you will feel great doing. If you’d like some tips on how to get your best photo-ready look, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Primp, Primp, Primp

You can use this extra hour for something that will make you feel better now- taking care of yourself! Deep condition your hair or give yourself a sea salt scrub. Doing something small like a blackhead removal strip on your nose can make your face feel instantly fresher. If you want to get more and more detailed, try a more advanced move like a lip exfoliator.

 Partner Up

Take some time with your fiance to talk wedding talk. It can be crazy times right now, and you don’t want to get wrapped up in the chaos of it all. Go out for omelettes with your extra hour and talk about what you love about each other. Treat each other to love letters. Take time to slow down and enjoy being in love with each other.

Plan Ahead

Remember that there’s still wedding work after the wedding! Plan ahead for thank you cards early so you can really kick back and relax after you’re married. If you’re going to use a photo from the wedding ceremony on your thank you cards, plan for it. Think about doing customized stamps with your rings to add a sweet touch. It could also help to have all of your guest’s names and addresses all in one place, like a spreadsheet. that way you can cross off their names when you write thank you cards. Some small prep now will save you time (and maybe a headache!) later.
