This may sound super cheeky, and, well it is. However, there is a right and a wrong way to do this whole ‘plan your wedding’ thing while at work.

So when the times come to plan your wedding, even if you have a wedding planner there will be ALOT to do.

Our first tip is to create a folder in your browser bar called ‘The Wedding’. Use this folder to drag across and save any links you find throughout the day.

That way they are secure and safe for that time when you do have a proper moment to look at them.
