Checklists, Q&A's & Planning Forms

15+ spreadsheet bundle

While each planner might have their unique style, we all follow a certain sequence and structure in our planning process. This structured approach is key to creating successful events. 










So, how do planner's pull off all these successful (and not stressful) events for their client's? And how does this benefit your planning?

It's because wedding planners use a specific, structured approach for planning weddings? 

Ensures Nothing is Overlooked: With so many elements to consider – from venue selection to guest lists, catering, and decorations – a planner's approach ensures that no critical details are missed. This is especially important for things that need to be booked or decided well in advance.

Efficient Time Management: A planner's approach allows for better time management. It helps in setting realistic timelines for each task, ensuring that everything is done in a timely manner, avoiding last-minute rushes.

Better Budget Management: Weddings can be expensive, and costs can spiral quickly without a plan. A planner's budgeting process allows for a clearer understanding of the budget, helping to track expenses and make cost-effective decisions.

Attention to Detail: By methodically planning each aspect of the wedding, you can pay closer attention to the quality of vendors, materials, and services being used. This ensures that the final event meets your expectations.

Allows for Flexibility: Even with the best plans, unexpected changes can occur. A planner's approach, has built-in flexibility and allows for planning adjustments without causing a complete overhaul of your plans.

Reduces Stress and Overwhelm: Wedding planning involves numerous details, decisions, and deadlines. A planner's approach helps break down the process into manageable tasks, reducing feelings of stress and overwhelm.


Unfortunately, if you're planning on your own, it's hard to find this kind of guidance online. Most resources are just a mix of checklists and blog posts that give you scattered information. This often leads to a lot of time spent searching the internet and trying to piece together your own plan, which is what causes all the overwhelm, overspending and wasted time. 

Here's how following TBM's proven planning method can benefit your planning and most important, your pocket!

This is how your planning becomes easier and more affordable. 

SO, WHO'S A PERFECT FIT FOR TBM?

You don't have a professional wedding planner, but would love the help & value the advice of a seasoned pro. 

You're juggling a busy schedule and can't afford to waste time sorting through hundreds of blogs to find your answers. TBM is streamlined to save you time, laying out everything in a clear, organized manner, so you can confidently plan without the guesswork. 

You like processes that make your life easier and make you feel confident that you are working through all the right steps (and in the right order). 

If you're looking to navigate your wedding planning with the insights and knowledge of a professional, yet prefer the flexibility of doing it yourself, this course is tailored for you. It's designed to provide the support, advice, and structured approach guided by a professional planner.

If you're new to the wedding scene, having never attended or participated in a wedding. TBM is perfect for those who lack firsthand wedding experience and are looking for guidance to navigate this new planning confidently.

this sounds like me! 🥂

I often get asked by new clients if I can help them save money during wedding planning. The answer is yes, but it's probably not how you think.

The biggest savings come from initial pre-planning, setting a proper budget, choosing the right venue, and asking the right questions to vendors. Following a structured planning process is crucial to keep your budget in check. Without this, many couples end up 'venue poor,' spending too much on the venue and compromising on other aspects. This is often due to scattered, convoluted planning methods using various sites and checklists, which can lead to budget issues.

I've created hundreds of budgets and manage them so I can confidently say that your actions at the start of planning are critical to helping you save money immediately.

That's why the first modules of this course focus on pre-planning and creating a solid budget, along with educating you about essential aspects before you dive deep into planning. So YES, when you follow a certain process, you'll find saving. 

WILL TBM SAVE ME MONEY?

This is such a great question! The number one thing is that there isn’t anything exactly like this out there at this time. The Bridal Method offers 14 modules packed with all the detail I could pull out of my planner brain. My resource really dives into the nitty gritty of planning with so much detail and guidance that it will completely change 

I have given newly engaged couples access to my entire planning process from beginning to end, step-by-step to eliminate overwhelm and confusion. I don’t just focus on the main vendors to book, I delve into all the smaller details like creating floor plans and air tight timelines, creating ceremony processionals, how to avoid bridal party and mother of the bride drama, and literally so much more. I thought about all of the details that my clients deal with when planning and included it.

WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER PLANNING RESOURCES?

Forever, ….but let’s hope you don’t need it that long! If I film additional videos down the road, you'll also get access to those. 

HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE LESSONS? 

This is one of the biggest questions that I get. TBM is for anyone planning in any state inside the US. 

I DON'T LIVE IN THE U.S, IS TBM RIGHT FOR ME?

It's entirely your choice. You have the option to binge-watch this over a weekend if you're eager to absorb all the information quickly. However, I recommend pacing yourself and watching each segment according to the schedule of your planning timeframe.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO COMPLETE THE COURSE?

Ready for all the goodies that the spreadsheets offer?

Customizable dashboard & planning timeline, budget tracker, guest tracker, wedding day timeline templates, wedding party tracker, seating chart template, vendor tracker, ideas list, vendor & venue comparison, wedding day packing list, day of contact list, honeymoon planner, optional spreadsheets for welcome parties, showers, etc.

TBM is used to it's fullest if you are newly engaged or have been planning for 3-months or less. My experience has taught me that there are so many details that brides tend to overlook in their excitement and only realize much later that they need help. Even if you've booked your venue, you'll want to go back and watch the venue module. You might have to go back and ask the venue more questions after watching these lessons. I know stuff!!!

I’VE BEEN PLANNING FOR A FEW MONTHS AND HAVE A FEW DETAILS CHECKED OFF MY LIST-CAN THE BRIDAL METHOD STILL HELP?

back to all FAQ

Plus, I am a professional wedding planner by trade. I do this literally every single day. Some of the templates and guides you’ll find searching Google are not written by planners. And this scares the heck out of me for all the brides out there because they can sometimes do more harm than good based upon what I’ve seen.

Large wedding sites do not provide cohesive planning. It’s a mix of a million ways you could plan your wedding and it gets so darn confusing! I’ve gotten a lot of clients because of this honestly, they get overwhelmed by what they find online and need help. So now, that help is packaged into The Bridal Method. TBM is written in a way that you can easily follow along and plan in steps outlined by one person, so you aren’t getting a mix of information and timelines are crystal clear.
