    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 used Wedding Dresses – Wedding Cakes – Wedding Planning – Unique Wedding Ideas too. What features are you looking for?

          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.

            The knot.com was the most helpful to me.

                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.

                  I used the one from Sandals.com. I really like it and it's free. I think it would be great for what you want cause you can set up different events.

                  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.
                  Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!
