Today’s episode is brought to you by the Manage My Wedding App. The Manage My Wedding App was created to take the stress out of planning a wedding while helping bridal couples stay organised and on budget. Many wedding budgets are blown early, and it can be very stressful if you don’t have the money to pay your suppliers in the last couple of weeks before your wedding. The budget section within the App tracks payments to each supplier and lets you know if you are staying within budget. You can even create a wish list separate to your budget so that if there's money left over, you can move a wish list item into your essential elements. You can download the App via our website managemywedding.com. If you don’t have an ios device, then please keep on listening to the podcast as I am excited to say that something is coming very soon that will help you plan your wedding. Following us on Instagram @managemywedding and you will be sure to hear more soon.
