The biggest challenge of planning something as large as a wedding is making sure you keep track of all the moving pieces at one time. And this can be tricky unless you have the right tools. While wedding planners would be easier, sometimes money is more of a concern than convenience. For those situations, developers have written software to help.
To check out software, its features, pros and cons, search Google for wedding planner software reviews. Many of the most popular wedding planning software packages come with a download trial so you can check them out before buying. This can be especially helpful if you're looking for a specific feature. Take your time exploring and make lots of notes to remember which program contained which features.
Here is a list of things to watch for in choosing your software:
* Date countdown
* Accommodations for out-of-town guests
o Date Due
o Date Paid
* Tasks and Timelines
Don't let this list send you into shock. Use it as a guideline and take it one step at a time. The software will provide a lot of help. But just in case you are a little overwhelmed seeing everything involved in the wedding, you can still use a wedding planner but on a limited basis. Set up a one-time consultation or ask them to handle only specific parts of the planning that you prefer to assign to someone else. You can do this.
