    your posts are beyond (BEYOND) helpful as I start my wedding planning business. we all start somewhere, right?

    I have worked for wedding venues for several years and planned endless corporate for my corporate employer, however having my own business is quite different when you don’t have the resources handed right to you on a silver platter. this website is my silver platter, thanks!

    wish i could spend a day with you! 🙂

    I am planning my first wedding, thankfully the bride is a close friend and already has many plans so my job is just executing it. She has asked if I had electronic copies of my work. Is there a application on PC/MAC/iPAD that is used to organize via computer.

    I have all of her documents in folders nicely organized as suggested above, but I wasn’t sure if there was an easier way to document it all on a computer other than Word.

    I have scanned documents in, but sometimes it doesn’t catch all parts, or if I wrote stuff in or wanted to highlight, there were difficulties there.

    If anyone knows of an “app” or laptop application, I would appreciate the help.

    Thank you,
    New girl,
    Jilene

    Hi Jilene! Thank you for your comment. There really isn’t a reason you need everything to be electronic if you have a physical binder of everything. It’s always good to have it electronically for a backup or if your client needs a copy. You can work with paper if that is easiest for you. Remember that you dictate how you plan weddings, not your clients.

    I am just starting my business and am looking for a great software to keep track of everything. I don’t want a monthly online program, I would like one I can buy outright. Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    Becky, the Wedding Planner’s Toolbox could be a good fit. We use it in Google Drive so we can share it with our clients and with other vendors involved in each event. https://plannerslounge.com/wedding-planner-tools/

    Becky- I can’t say enough about how helpful the Planner’s Toolbox was for me in getting my business off the ground and keeping organized. It is definitely a worth-while buy!
