Jump start Your Wedding Plans

And avoid the common (and expensive) mistakes that many couples make while planning their wedding!


Most couples start planning their wedding by booking a venue and hiring vendors.  They skip the most important step in planning – creating the foundation of their wedding plans.  

This often leads to them spending more money on their wedding than they anticipated, making the rest of the planning process stressful and frustrating.


The Wedding Planning Blueprint is here to lay that foundation for you, allowing you to enjoy wedding planning confidently again.  


Wedding Planning Priorities


Ensure that you have considered all the the key components that are important to you for your wedding.  No doubt you’ve already discovered that everyone wants to offer an engaged couple their opinions.  Establishing this pillar will make sure that you aren’t planning the wedding THEY want you to have!

Wedding budget


It’s not the most glamorous subject when it comes to wedding planning, but setting a solid budget early on will make sure you aren’t making expensive mistakes.

DON’T PLAN YOUR WEDDING BACKWARDS!  Learn why and how to avoid it in this pillar.

Outdoor wedding ceremony


So much of your wedding budget and plans will be determined by your guest list.  Snag tips on creating your guest list in this pillar.  

You’ll also get answers to some of the most common guest list issues and questions that couples have. 

Wedding Planning Priorities


How long do you need to plan a wedding?  When do you send out save the dates and invitations?  How do you know when you should be doing certain wedding tasks?
What should you even be doing right now?!?
Don’t worry!  We’ll get into all of that in pillar #4…YOU’VE GOT THIS!

Wedding budget


Hiring the right vendor team is probably the most important component to make sure you can actually enjoy your wedding day!  

Here we’ll discuss what vendors you need, what order you should book them in, and how to go about finding them in the mess of all of those vendor listing sites online.

What is the Membership all about?

Who is this for?

A membership with Planning Collective is for you if:

  • You went from being SO EXCITED about planning, to quickly feeling overwhelmed and defeated
  • You get distracted by all the inspiration posts on sites like The Knot & WeddingWire, but can’t find the realistic wedding planning resources
  • You dream of tossing the wedding plans and just eloping
  • You know what you want your wedding to be, you just don’t know how to get there
  • You don’t need (or don’t have the budget for) a Full Service Wedding Planner, but want to make sure that you aren’t missing any big steps

Who this is NOT for?

A membership may NOT be for you if:

  • You only need local vendor referrals – The Collective is supported by our members, not paid vendors.  This ensures members get honest advice that is not skewed towards advertising dollars.  If you’re just looking for vendors, check out What Wedding Vendors Do I Need, and then find your local market on WeddingWire for listings and reviews.
  • You are already working with a FULL SERVICE planner – The Collective will not replace the value of working with a Full Service planner.  If you are able to hire a professional,  you will not regret it!
  • You’re mostly looking for more pretty wedding images to Pin – While I will make sure to include some pretty images of my past events, our focus in the Collective is on the logistical planning details.  Not pages and pages of design inspiration.  Find me for free on Pinterest for that 🙂
