One unexpected aspect of wedding planning that people don’t think of is the amount of emails that you get. We all do this even outside of wedding planning, we go to a website a box pops up and says ‘Save 10% by giving your email below’ and we give our email. Most times you don’t even buy anything from the site, but the ‘what if’ factor is always there and saving 10% here and there especially at wedding time, can really add up and save.
One big way to combat this is by creating a new email account for just your wedding alone. Don’t think of this as your new married email, this is purely so you don’t get spammed from every bridal company around to your personal email. This email should be ‘Nickiesplanningawedding@gmail.com’ ‘Bridalcrap@yahoo.com’. Because once you really start the planning process you will get so much bridal and wedding stuff thrown your way, your head will spin. This is especially helpful if you go to bridal conventions and shows, a lot of these places will give out your email address to third parties, and before you know it you’ll get over 100 emails a day just for wedding stuff.
This will allow you to keep your personal email for your daily important emails so that you don’t miss a credit card bill or an email from your favorite aunt. Because trust me once you sign up once for a bridal email they won’t stop sending you stuff once your wedding is over. And this will allow you to not have to spend half your day unsubscribing from every email you get, just to clear room in your email.
