If any of this has you nodding your head “yes,” you’re in the right place!

You’re spending a lot of time Googling all your questions and feel like you’ve gotten nowhere. There’s a good chance you’re even more confused than when you started. You’re wondering if it’s going to be this complicated for the rest of your planning. 


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). But you haven’t quite figured that out because you’ve never done this before!


You’ve Googled “how to plan a wedding” once or twice (or… a million times). No shame. You’re not alone… there’s a reason why it’s a top 5 most Googled wedding search.


As you start diving into planning you are feeling a tad bit overwhelmed by the whole planning process and realize it’s a little more work than you expected.


who were so excited to plan their own weddings but…

Maybe you’re like so many of the brides I’ve worked with

There are a million checklists online, but which one is the right one? You have tons of vendor questions swirling around in your head, but which ones actually matter? Your list of potential vendors is a mile long… how do you narrow it down and know who you can trust?

You’re having budgeting nightmares and guest list dilemmas and constantly wondering, “What am I forgetting?!” I know! It’s a lot!

Introducing The Bridal Method’s

All-in-One Wedding Planning Template

This epic Google Sheet has 15+ tabs of planning goodness.

It will help you identify what to do during each month of planning, allow you to customize checklists for all the itty bitty details, ensure you’re budgeting like a pro, and more. I’ve even sprinkled in pro tips throughout, so you can plan like a pro without having to hire one (y’all I get it, it’s expensive!). 

I think everyone deserves an easy & fun wedding planning experience. So, that’s why I created this all-in-one spreadsheet that houses all my favorite tools I use with my own clients.

You'll even get to pick your spreadsheet color once you purchase. 
Choose from "Something Blue", "Olive You", "Latte Love", and "Spring Vibes"

This is your hub! From your live wedding day countdown to budget snapshots to guest list updates and payment reminders, you have a bird’s eye view of your planning to-dos and progress! Plus, you can customize with your wedding colors or engagement photo which is super fun. I use this with my clients and when I say it’s a lifesaver, I mean it!

Your Dashboard

From engagement to the wedding day, the annual calendar tells you exactly what you should be doing and when. And of course, pro tips peppered in throughout! 

Annual Planning Calendar

This all-in-one budget template allows you to prioritize your purchases, remember the most commonly forgotten expenses, and keep track of what’s been paid/ what needs to be paid. Plus, you’ll get tons of expert budgeting tips AND upcoming 30-day payment reminders on your dashboard!

Budget Tracker

When it comes to guests, you have to track more than their RSVPs! This sheet allows you to do that, plus track their meal choice, gifts for thank you cards, seating arrangements, and more—all in one place.

Guest List Tracker

A lot of couples forget about planning the ceremony amidst all the reception planning craziness. This tool organizes your processional and recessional and allows you to organize and track all your music selections and traditions in one place. Plus, I share some ideas for what to do if you’re stuck!

Making your wedding day timeline can feel super overwhelming. So, I created three example timelines: One without a first look, one with a first look, and a master timeline example. Then, you have the mac daddy of day-of templates (two of them) you can fill in with your special day deets!


Wedding Day Timeline Templates

Now when you create the timeline to share, it goes hand-in-hand with your contacts! This template will allow you to have all your vendor contact details in one place to distribute, so you can sit back and relax on your big day and let the planner or your wedding party take the reins!


Day Of Master Contact Template

According to Wedding Wire, the average couple hires 15 vendors for their wedding! That’s a lot to manage. Keep track of your main contact for each team, day of contacts, contracts, and phone numbers all in one spot!


Vendor Tracker

No matter how many vendors you are hiring, you need to compare them. This tab will help you compare costs, pros and cons, what’s included, and more. The goal is to visualize everything in one area so you can make a clear decision!


Vendor/ Venue Comparison Sheet

Are you throwing other events like a brunch, welcome party, rehearsal dinner? Not everyone plans for these events so, Instead of overwhelming you with a ton of tabs you might not need, I made the honeymoon budget VERSATILE. If you need to budget for these events, you can duplicate the honeymoon budget tab, change the name and start budgeting for these events. 


Optional Budget Tabs

We love your wedding party, but it can be like herding cats with all the excitement going around! This sheet will help you keep track of who’s gotten their attire, who is getting hair/ makeup done, whether or not you purchased their bridal party gift, and more.


Wedding Party Tracker

This tab is a fun one… because you don’t have to do a darn thing. The info from your guest tracker will populate table assignments and meal choices automatically so you can simply hand it over to your caterer. Easy peasy!


Seating Chart Template

Every dream wedding starts with a list of your favorite ideas. This is your vision board of sorts with a few bonus features like pricing. Keep all your must-haves in one place as you plan!


Idea List

You don’t want to be getting ready and realize you forgot your shoes or your bridesmaids’ gifts. The packing list will help you track what you need and if it’s already packed and ready to go (and where you can find it), or still needs to be packed!


Wedding Packing List

Now… the fun doesn’t stop at the wedding. If you’re jetting off the morning after your big day, you’re likely planning a honeymoon too! These two bonus tabs will help you plan, budget, and organize the trip of your lives.


Honeymoon Planner & Template

 I’ve given you everything I’ve got to keep you organized, on track, and fully confident that you won’t miss a thing. 

If you haven’t figured it out by now, organization is the single most important part of planning your wedding.

Also Included:

7 planning guides - all the planning guides my clients receive when they start planning. These guides will help you move through it all, from the big obvious details to the more overlooked things like wedding insurance to kid-free weddings. 


The Planning Guide Bundle-

Bonus two -

When you are planning without pro help, it’s hard to get answers for your exact planning scenario because no two weddings are the same. You might find a blog about your topic but have so many more questions… except you don’t have access to the person that wrote the article to ask them.

Having access to a pro to ask all those burning questions that keep you up at night will give you the ultimate peace of mind. You’ll always feel confident that your wedding is moving in the right direction.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve provided a printable/editable course outline for you to start your Bridal Method bible, so to speak. The choice is yours, but you don’t need a printer. You could print all the sheets and create your own binder, or just edit the course along the way on your computer or tablet and keep everything digital. Whatever works best for you, girl!


Forever, ….but let’s hope you don’t need it that long! TBM is a digital download, once you purchase you will have your own copy sitting pretty on your desktop for the duration of your planning.

How long do I have access to The Bridal Method?

TBM is used to it's fullest if you are nearly 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.


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 16 sections content that is 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.

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. Continue Reading

What makes you different from any other planning resources?

I don't live in the us-is tbm good for me?

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

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.
