THE DASHBOARD

Ok, it's time to start planning; where to start? When should I design my invitations, book a florist, and secure rentals?

 

Well, you can stop stressing about it all; we have the perfect tool in place to walk you through the entire planning process step by step, all while keeping you stress-free and on track. 

 

The dashboard is the springboard to everything; it's accessible via our client lounge on our website and password protected.  

CUSTOMIZED CHECKLISTS

Displayed by time or category, these checklists are cultivated from years of experience and are completely customizable to you and your unique needs. Items can be assigned to either you or your fiancé or tasks that we’ll take on for you! We can leave comments, updates, or questions.  

Our customized to your wedding checklist is your GPS for planning your wedding.  This comprehensive list will walk you through the process - we think It's the best thing since sliced bread!

BUDGET & VENDOR TRACKING

A fully-integrated budgeting tool makes sure you don’t let a single payment slip through the tracks or put you over budget. Easily set up your goals at the beginning of the planning process, and we will track the adjustments as you design, book, and purchase your event services and accessories.  

Keeping track of your booked and pending vendors couldn’t be easier with our vendor tool. It allows you to upload related files, contact information, and enter invoices and payment breakdowns that will automatically add to your budget and calendar for easy reminders – How cool is that?? 

GUEST & SEATING MANAGEMENT

Creating the perfect seating assignments just got easier. Our Seating tool allows you to quickly group guests who have RSVP’d at each table and make sure no guests are left unconsidered. 

 

Using the group's feature, you can highlight relationships and relatives, assuring a fabulous ambiance at every table.
