Hi everyone,

I have finally booked a venue for a June 2019 wedding! Now the fun begins...

I downloaded the bride book app for my phone and found it helpful when looking for venues and starting to think about guest list. I'd like to use an online tool to keep track of spending and plan the budget rather than creating a spreadsheet from scratch. It also means that I could access from anywhere.

What are your experiences of both of these websites? Or any alternative tools / websites you'd recommend?

most of the apps are pretty much the same, but we ditched ours in the end because they all encourage u to worry about, and spend money on, things u don't need an didn't think u wanted before u read them on some stupid list!   

my hubby2be made a spreadsheet 2 suit our own list, its really simple and works perfectly 4 us

I started trying Hitched and agree with you - I deleted or amended half the items on the to-do list and budget planner. I am also finding it too restrictive - too many sub menus you have to go into to edit the simplest things - so thinking a spreadsheet is the way forward!

I looked at the online ones and found they would all need some editing to match my needs so I just did my own in the end, didn't take long at all and I used the online ones for inspiration. Just save it to your onedrive/google docs and then you can access and edit it anywhere on your phone?

Done the same as Jenni, spreadsheet on Google docs we can both access from laptop/phones.

Another vote for your own spreadsheet, kept mine on onedrive so could access it when out and about :)

Thanks - I will take a look and it may give inspiration.

Currently my wedding spreadsheet is sat on the cloud and I’m pretty proud if myself
