How to Plan Your Wedding at Work Without Getting Fired

We get it, wedding planning can be all consuming! You’ve probably found yourself talking and thinking about your wedding all the time. And you may have been tempted to spend some work time doing a little sneaky wedding planning. Life is busy and not everyone has the time to spend their evenings relaxing and planning their wedding. The trick here is to make sure you’ve still got a job after your wedding, so you can’t give into the temptation to let wedding planning run away with you. Well, if that’s what’s on your mind, here are some pro tips so you don’t lose your job in the process.



Use your breaks

Heck, this is what breaks are for! Instead of rushing off to catch up with friends over lunch or coffee, spend your breaks doing a bit of wedding planning. There’s nothing sneaky about it.


Set a timer

You know how it is… You start doing a ‘quick’ task and the next thing you know, it’s been 8 hours and you’ve contacted every wedding venue in the country. Instead of letting time run away with you, set a timer for 15 minutes to keep yourself in check. Make sure you stop wedding planning and get back to work once that timer goes off.



If you’re worried you’ll get caught, even if you’re still getting all your work done and only planning your wedding during breaks, it’s best to use ‘incognito’ mode. This way, there’s no trace of the hundreds of wedding dresses you’ve been drooling over on Pinterest.


Get to work early

Consider arriving an hour early and bang out some wedding planning before the work day begins! If you’re a morning person, you’ll probably find this time super productive.


We’ve created a tool for busy, working brides like you! Our Service Finder is the best and easiest way to find the best suppliers in the business.
