WeddingLovely's Planning Guide is Now Free

We love our online wedding planning guide — launched awhile ago, we help couples walk through their wedding planning online and connect them with some of our most awesome vendors that we work with through our wedding vendor guide.

Up until now, it was a paid product with a free trial, but we have decided that it was time to work with as many wonderful couples as possible — so we’ve made our planning guide 100% free.

The planning guide comes with a ton of amazing features, including:

  • Walk through the biggest steps in planning your wedding, like finding a venue.
  • Local venue and vendor recommendations included in your task pages.
  • Vendor favoriting and reviewing all integrated.
  • Note-taking — keep track of all the little things you need to remember.
  • Printable checklist so you can keep track of everything you need to do at once.
  • Partner and planner integration — invite others to help plan with you.
  • One-on-one wedding advice — ping WeddingLovely with specific questions and we’ll help you out.
  • Email reminders to ping you every few weeks with inspiration and ideas.
  • Pinterest board integration — keep your inspiration in mind as you plan your wedding.
  • Partnership with Appy Couple — get an Appy account for just $35 through WeddingLovely.
