Hi Everyone!


I am just getting started with this fun wedding planning and am really needing some software help. I have been looking at a few different planning softwares out there and was curious what people from here have used!


I read the I Do link, and actually have that free trial, but am having problems finding something that works best for having a destination wedding, and then having a reception back at home a couple months later.


Soooo....what have YOU used? What did you like/not like?


Thanks everyone for the help....and have a GREAT day!!!

I actually bought the Ido software and wasn't really happy with it. I ended up going back to excel, cuz it's just so easy to manipulate.

I've been using Wedding Planner - Free online planning software. It looks like it's straight outta the '80s, but I love the "People" feature and the "Seating" one too. I don't really use it for much else, as it's not highly customizeable (sp?) but you can change SOME things.

here's another thread about this, just for more input



also keep in mind the reason why you are having a hard time making any of them work is that all the software and programs and wedding planning books are made for traditional weddings not DW's.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
