My professional family knows that I love this CRM! So let’s kick things off first with Honeybook, a game-changer for wedding professionals. Honeybook is a comprehensive client relationship management platform designed to streamline your workflow and enhance your client experience. It’s simple to use for both backend work flows and client facing checklists.

Another perk is their passion for connecting you with even more resources for wedding planners because of their partnership with the Rising Tide Society. This is one of my favorite communities!

Haute Stock

Haute Stock is your go-t0 place for stunning visuals. In the world of wedding planning, aesthetics matter—a lot. As a curated library of high-quality stock photos and graphics, Haute Stock offers an endless array of visually captivating images to elevate your brand and marketing materials. I appreciate the value they place on diversity. Whether you’re designing a website, crafting social media posts, or creating promotional materials, they provide the perfect backdrop to showcase your unique style, a better representation of the type of couples you’re looking for, and expertise.

Plus, with new photos added regularly, you’ll always have fresh inspiration at your fingertips. Say goodbye to bland, uninspired visuals and hello to a brand aesthetic that captivates and delights your audience.

The Contract Shop

If you’re running any kind of business, you need a solid contract in place (maybe more than one!). As a wedding planner, having solid contracts and agreements in place is non-negotiable. That’s where The Contract Shop comes in. With its extensive library of customizable legal templates tailored specifically for wedding professionals, The Contract Shop takes the guesswork out of legalities and gives you peace of mind. From client contracts and service agreements to vendor agreements and terms of service, Christina Scalera has you covered. She even has a new business checklist for you to remove any overwhelm if you are just getting started in your wedding business.

There are multiple reasons why I love MailChimp, and if you are a wedding planner looking to grow an email list, I have a feeling you are going to love them too. They have so many great email templates that make you emails LOOK good. I know I’m not the only one more excited to create a beautiful email, right?!

Since I enjoy the design process more, I’m actually sending out more emails to my list as well (which leads to more sales). Lastly, I love that the price for MailChimp is so affordable. Click here to get a % off MailChimp promo code and save on your first year!

Entrepreneur Encounter Circle

Can I be honest? The wedding industry is full of amazing talent, but sometimes we get caught up in our own bubble. Look beyond the wedding world for inspiration. Connect with a diverse group of entrepreneurs, share ideas, and step outside the typical wedding planning circle. If you want to transform your wedding business into a place where you are more than just another wedding planner but a true leader in your community, consider Entrepreneur Encounter Circle as your stepping stone to truly lean into and embrace that role. If you want to connect with fellow entrepreneurs of all kinds and want to step into something a little different than the typical wedding planner education circles, I highly recommend it!

Take the time to explore each resource thoroughly and familiarize yourself with its features and capabilities. If you have ANY questions about any of these recommendations, don’t hesitate to reach out to to me by sending a DM or email and lets chat about it. I’m genuinely passionate about helping wedding pros grow and build a business they love. Explore more wedding industry resources on my website!
