Tools – Success

As a wedding planner you will be using a lot of visual tools. In this lesson I’ll share an overview of the tools I use for design and inspiration. These are all free tools and resources (although they also have paid versions but you probably won’t need them).

For now, just take some time to get to know them, and later in the course I’ll show you how to use them for different aspects of designing a wedding ceremony and reception:

  • Canva is probably the most popular tool that non-designers can use to create beautiful designs. Here’s a video of it in action:  How To Canva DIY Wedding Invitation and Menu
  • Pinterest is a great resource to get inspired. There are millions of images other people have already found useful (and beautiful). You can search Pinterest by keywords (for example, “wedding invitations” or more specifically “vintage wedding invitations”).
  • To easily create seating plans, use tools like Seating Plan Solutions.
  • To draw floor plans we recommend using 2 software programs: www.Socialtables.com (a paid subscription software with a FREE 14 day trial) and www.3deventdesigner.com (there is no free trial version in this software, only a monthly subscription of $9.95 per month – which you can cancel at anytime).

Welcome Back,
