A stunning wedding venue in Essex

The best wedding planning tools

Posted: Monday December 14, 2015

Feeling a little overwhelmed by all the bits and pieces you still need to co-ordinate for your wedding day? Don’t fret - these handy tools and resources are exactly what you need! 


Confetti offer four key planning tools that will take you from the moment you get engaged right up to your big day; a budget planner, to-do list, guest list and table planner. Each of them are really easy (and actually quite fun) to use: 

Budget planner - Enter your maximum budget and watch the planner work its magic, delivering a detailed list of how much each aspect of your wedding is likely to cost. Track your actual spends as you go, to make sure you’re sticking to your limit.

To-do list - Make a note of all the things you need to do leading up to the wedding so everything runs perfectly on the day.

Guest list - Keep on top of numbers for your ceremony and reception to make sure you don’t forget anyone! This handy tool also makes a great resource for sending out save-the-dates and invites.

Table planner - Once you start receiving RSVPs, this tool will help plan where each of your guests will sit. For more table plan inspiration, read our blog post here.


For the super savvy bride, this is a lifesaver! Design a bespoke app and website for your wedding (no tech or design skills required!). Add in your special memories as a couple and all the details for your big day and then share with your friends and family to keep them in-the-know and entertained.

The site also offers plenty of inspiration to help you co-ordinate everything before, during and after your big day, from a planning timeline, to tips for best wedding etiquette and even a honeymoon ideas guide.


Create the wedding of your dreams at a fraction of the cost. This website is perfect for designing your own decorations or wedding favours with a selection of stunning printable resources, and easy-to-follow instructions for handmade treats.

We particularly love the downloadable chalkboard, it’s not only extremely versatile but also absolutely beautiful. Use it for table names, menus, favour gift labels and more.


Pinterest is a must-have app for the modern day bride. Browse through thousands of gorgeous photos to inspire your plans for each individual aspect of your day including dresses, jewellery, hairstyles, cakes, decorations, and everything in between.

Create searches and filter them right down to find exactly what you’re after. Save (pin) images you love to create mood boards that you can revisit again and again. This is a great resource for making initial plans and connecting with potential suppliers, especially if you haven’t a clue where to start!
