Wedding Planning Checklist
Once you’ve entered into your profile the date of the wedding, you can then head over to your checklist. Here you’ll see broken down what you need to be tackling each month to stay on schedule.
You can explore expert tips for each category and have that super satisfying feeling of ticking areas off as you go along.
If there’s something specific to you that needs sorting but it isn’t on the checklist, you can simply add this in and customise the list to suit you.
An area that is always tricky to navigate is how much you should be spending on things in relation to your chosen budget. With the website’s intelligent budget tracker, it will automatically breakdown for you how much is recommended you spend on each category based on your budget.
As you tick things off your checklist, you can then log on your budget tracker how much you actually spent per supplier so you can have a firm idea of where your budget is at all times.
Guest List and Table Planner
If you aren’t aware already, you might want to prepare yourself for the joys of RSVP’s, or should I say non-RSVPs! Luckily, with the Wedding Planner Guest List function it should help make things a lot easier.
Here you are able to log who’s coming, whether it’s for the full wedding or just the evening and when finally all your replies are in you can simply download the guest list as a fuss-free PDF to share with your suppliers. You can then use the table planner to drag and drop your wedding party onto the various tables, whilst working out what the table names will be too.
