Listen. I get it. The Internet’s Maid of Honor isn’t going to be your be-all-end-all source for wedding planning. Maybe one day I will get it to that level, but it’s not quite there yet. In the meantime, I want you guys and gals to have all the tools you need. That’s why I scoured the internet for the best of the best tools for planning different parts of your wedding. I really love this list I created (and wish I had utilized more of them when I was planning), so I hope you find something in here that helps you!

I do want to mention that I have several free printables available already for IMOH friends. This includes a reception checklist, 50+ things brides forget to budget for sheet and more. If you’re interested in getting those ASAP, just fill out the form below and they’ll head your way.

Four Pros Share Their “Getting Ready” Routine Before a Speaking Engagement

Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a new to speaking at conferences and association meetings, the success of your talk itself will rely heavily on how you prepared even months prior to taking the stage. It’s not simply a matter of practicing as much as possible- there are many, finer details that need to be considered before you stand in front of your peers.

A speaker’s routine varies but there’s one thing for sure: having a standard routine to ensure you are as prepared as possible is essential.

For some, it begins with your overall look and how you plan to present yourself. “My getting ready routine begins at home to ensure that I have an outfit appropriate for the audience and that makes me feel comfortable,” says CeCe Todd, owner of CeCe Designs.

She adds that this extends to the day itself. “I always ensure that my hair and makeup is done to give me all the confidence that I’m presenting myself in the best manner in public.”
