To those of you who are planning a wedding right now, I have found one of the most helpful tools ever! When I first started looking at venues and thought about a budget I was trying to find a way to organize the tons of information that I was being bombarded with. I looked and looked online for something that would make this easier and I couldn't find anything that was an all in one kind of tool. Then I found this.
Google documents has an all-in-one wedding planner! It is amazing!! The planner is filled with spreadsheets that help you organize your venues, all your vendors, guest list, seating chart, and it even gives you itineraries and check lists to help you track all the tons of information you will need to plan out your wedding.
I have been putting together a guest list. I can put all my guest and who they will bring, their addresses, e-mails, whether or not I have sent invitations to them, if they have dietary restrictions, and if they are apart of the wedding party or rehearsal dinner. The guest list spreadsheet is amazing!
The venue spreadsheet is awesome too. You are able to put all the contact information for the venue such as the website, the coordinator's name, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, whatever you need. Also, you can track the capacity, cost, parking, or what you think is important to know about your future venue. It is so helpful.
Here is the link to this amazing tool:
I highly recommend it!
