Wow, I can’t believe it’s over 6-months since I’ve gotten married and that wedding season is just around the corner. I’m glad to have gone through the process because now I can help you with wedding planning based on my personal experience! Wedding planning is a BEAST and when people say it can be a full-time job, it’s true. I’m not saying that to scare you haha, but to warn you in that there’s so much to do and a lot to consider when it comes to wedding planning. Luckily, there are several tools out there to make wedding planning less stressful.
Out of all the tools that I researched and tested myself, Zola was by far the best for several reasons. It’s online so you can access it anytime, it’s free, user-friendly, and very comprehensive. We used Zola for our to-do list, wedding website, registry, and guest RSVP’s. It was seriously the best and our guests loved our website since it had all the information they needed. Since I’m beyond grateful for loyal followers like you, who actually read my blog (because, who really reads long content anymore? lol) I’m going to hook you up with access to our wedding website that we created on Zola. Take a look, get some ideas, inspiration, or just read the details on our wedding and love story. It’s pylesofyun.com and the password is #PylesFindsTheYun
Why Zola is the best online wedding planning tool:
- It’s free: Wedding planning is ridiculously expensive and the last thing you need to do is spend more money. What I loved about Zola is it’s completely free. I looked at multiple other wedding website planning tools like aisleplanner (you have to pay for this one) and still loved Zola since it was also very easy to use.
- It covers all the essentials of wedding planning: There are so many factors to consider for wedding planning which can get overwhelming. Luckily, Zola has all the necessities built onto their platform so whatever you need, they got you covered. Need invites? They can do that. Need to create a website? You’re covered. Need to create a registry? They have that too. Think you’re going to forget something? They have a checklist pre-built for you. They’ve thought of everything for you, which makes planning super easy.
- It really is the best tool for creating a wedding website: My career background is in website design and merchandising, and Josh has a product design background so this statement is very bold of us to claim, but it’s true. We researched several websites when it came to building our website and chose Zola since it was able to integrate everything into one place. They also had multiple free templates which were all beautifully designed and all the templates can be further customized. If you look at our wedding website, you’ll see the categories we used and how easy it was for guests to find everything they needed. Our guests loved how organized it was, loved reading our love story, and the website helped them with any questions they had.
So if you’re wondering which tool to use to help with wedding planning, check out Zola. I personally loved it and highly recommend it.
