How to Plan a Wedding at Work and Keep Your Job


Edwin Fotheringham/BRIDES

It's tempting to spend your day checking out catering menus and trying on virtual wedding dresses. Stop! Follow this advice from BRIDES magazine to stay on track and employed.

DO your research before or after work, or during your lunch hour. Better yet, do it at home.
DON'T get deliveries at work. You aren't paying the company messengers' salaries, are you?
DO use your personal e-mail account—your company may screen employees' work e-mails.
DON'T mail invitations from your office mailroom. Stick them in a post-office mailbox instead.
DO use the computer, rather than the phone, during (legitimate) breaks—no one wants to hear your sparring with Mom about the budget.
DON'T assume all your coworkers are as enthusiastic about your wedding as you are. You don't want to be known as that kind of bride around the water cooler.
DO be organized. Efficiency means it will take less time to do everything.
DON'T do everything yourself—delegate. Ask your fiance and your bridesmaids to help.
