Week 24 Wedding tips

Wedding tips: Keep a proper paper Trail (Week 24)

I deal with many brides every week at different stages of the planning process. With all the different communication methods it’s so easy to get confused.
Between Email, website enquiries, Whatsapp messages, Text messages, Facebook wall messages, Private FB messages, Twitter, Linkedin and even a plain old phone call it really becomes a juggling act.

To ensure that we are all on the same page I am thus requesting to use the same platform. I have found that email still works the best. From enquiries through to sending attachments its best to keep a proper paper trail in one place.
This will allow you to file your email per category e.g.. Photographers, Cakes, venues etc.
It’s also nice to have the goal of your email as well your location and wedding date in the heading of every email. This makes sorting for everybody easier.
E.g.. Subject: Wedding photography – Riekert and Iza/1 Jan 2017/Buckinham Palace
A signature with at least a telephone number is also helpful for in case we have questions.
Copy yourself in on the important emails you send. Then you have a copy in your inbox for easy access
I know this is a pain but in the end, it will give you order as well speed up the process with everybody.
Hope this helps a bit!
