3 Benefits of Creating a Wedding Email Address

Hey everyone! Mer here 😊

One trend we see a lot of couples do is create a wedding email address! The first time I saw this I thought it was a brilliant idea. When you’re planning a wedding there are so many moving parts and pieces. As a young bride I didn’t know how involved wedding planning would truly be. For all the type A brides out there this is a free and easy way to keep all your ducks in a row.

1. Everything is digital

When planning my own wedding, I had a physical folder that included important contracts, timelines, and checklists. Looking back I’m sure it would have been much easier to have everything on my phone. I can just imagine having a color-coordinated label for every vendor to keep track of communication (and all the type A brides said yes and amen!). If you do have physical documents you can always scan them and email them to yourself. Because it’s online you, your fiancĂ©, your planner, MOB, MOG, etc. have access to everything at any given time. Talk about a huge win!

2. Central communication hub

One of the best features is having the ability to do all your communication via email. No more wondering where you stand with each vendor—communication history is at your finger tips. Gmail seamlessly integrates with most calendars so that you can add any Reminders or Meetings.

If your guests are RSVPing via email your work and/or personal inbox won’t get flooded with hundreds of emails. This is a sure-fire way to keep your inbox clean and clutter free. Rather than continually planning you’re able to set aside time to work on wedding emails rather than it consuming your day.

3. A wedding planning archive

One of the first things you’ll do as a newlywed bride is begin the process of changing your name on all important documents. Most of the time this means a new email too. Your old email will be become obsolete and you could lose all of your wedding related emails after the wedding. You may need to revisit a contracts months down the road or find a link to your video or photo gallery.

Once you’re married, you’re going to want to help your friends plan their weddings. Having this email is an amazing resource that you can point friends to to help plan their wedding.
