Feeling the Love: Free Wedding Planning Resources

Posted on 01/24/2014

Weddings are a big investment of time and money. So why not take advantage of free resources when you can? Thankfully there are lots of incredible free tools that will help you plan your perfect dream wedding.

Free Wedding Budget Tool
The average American wedding costs about $26,000. Stick to your budget with the help of a free wedding budget tool at weddingwire.com. Track spending, set up payment schedules, or redistribute funds if you decide to allocate more to your gown and less on linens.

Google for Weddings
Google does everything so it shouldn't surprise us that they also want to help you plan your big day. Announce the news, find a venue, make a website and more. All of Google's wedding tools are completely free.

Free Invitation Suites
Forget about having to hire a graphic designer. Just visit weddingchicks.com and spend a few minutes designing a modern monogram invitation, response card, save the date and programs. Choose between 21 text colors to give the materials a custom look. All you need is some paper, a printer and a few minutes.

Gift Registry 360 App
The free Gift Registry 360 app lets you scan and add anything with a barcode to your wedding registry using your iPhone. That means you can update and view your registry at any time. No more marathon sessions scanning china and towels at your local Bed, Bath and Beyond store.

Simplify the art of sending thank you cards with Postable, a free service that gathers guests' mailing addresses. It creates a free online address book and then helps you send thank you cards without ever having to pick up a pen or lick a stamp.

Seating Plans by Seat Puzzle App
Not sure where to put Aunt Betty or Uncle Bob at the reception? Create the perfect seating arrangement with the help of the free Seating Plans by Seat Puzzle app. If you have more than 20 guests you will have to pay $4.99 to upgrade to remove the guest limit. Another option is the free seating arrangement software at WeddingWire.com that will help you design a complete floor plan and share your seating chart with others.
