My to-do List:
Not quite sure where to start? This to-do list of 45 tasks will help you on your way. It covers everything from securing accommodation for your guests to taking out that all important wedding insurance.
As each task is completed you tick the box, helping you keep track of what still needs taking care of. You can attach a date to each task too, so it’s incredibly easy to keep your planning schedule right on time and running smoothly. You can also edit the list, making changes to tasks whenever you need to and adding new tasks as they arise.
The budget planner:
Nothing causes quite as much stress as money when you’re in the thick of the big day build-up. But with the hitched budget planner it's easy to keep track of wedding costs and decide who will pay for what.
Divided in to six key sections (the build-up, the wedding, the reception, the honeymoon, the rings and looking good) you can input the predicted cost and the actual cost of each item, as well as making a note of who will foot the bill. If you suddenly discover an extra cost then adding it to your list is not a problem. Just one click allows you to look at your list by price, description or the person who is paying – and if you need to communicate your budget with your partner or parents then the click of a button will have the entire list emailed to your inbox with in seconds.
