The Gilded Aisle uses several tools to allow us to collaborate better with our couples and facilitate the event planning process.  

All Seated is a cloud-based platform that allows us to create detailed floor plans so our clients can better visualize their event space. This tool gives an overhead perspective as well as a 3D model so our couples can virtually walk through their wedding venue before the big day.

To ensure that nothing falls through the cracks, we’ve created a comprehensive to-do list that leads up to your wedding day. We can assign tasks to members of our team or to you or your family members and check them off as we go along.

One of our favorite features, this on-line guest manager tracks responses, meal selections, allergies, gifts received, thank you notes sent as well as special guest considerations such as high chair needs or accommodations for handicap guests. This tool also allows you to assign a category to each guest, such as “work friends,” “college friends,” “bride’s family” or “groom’s family.” By creating these sub-groups, your seating assignments will practically be done for you.

Aisle Planner is an on-line suite of tools that provides seamless communication and streamlines the planning process. Each client’s planning portal has everything needed to plan and manage all the details of your event: checklists, timelines, budget sheets, guest lists, seating charts, style guides, color palettes, vendor contact information and payment due dates – just to name a few. It’s completely digital and mobile-friendly and because it’s cloud-based you can access your wedding details from any device…any time. Take a look at all the different functions and let us know if you would like to log into a sample wedding on our planning portal and experience the magic for yourself.

guest list management

Fully integrated with your guest list, this simple, drag-and-drop feature allows you to create your table assignments quickly and efficiently. Built-in checks and balances will make sure each guest is accounted for and assigned to a table.

Our fully integrated budgeting tool keeps track of spending. You'll receive reminders for upcoming payment due dates so nothing slips through the cracks.

Our fully integrated budgeting tool keeps track of spending.  Think of this as your address book for your wedding vendors. All of your vendors and their information will be contained here including any wedding pros you’re considering but haven’t yet booked. We’ll input their contact information, the designated point person, copies of contracts, payments made and upcoming due dates so you can access all your wedding details while on the go. 

This is the roadmap of your wedding day that will keep all your vendors on the same page and running on schedule. We’re crazy for logistics so it’s not uncommon for our master timelines to run more than a dozen pages long. Yes, we like every single detail spelled out -- from the whereabouts of the nearest AED device to what drink we can have waiting for you at your wedding reception. This feature also allows us to create individual custom timelines for your wedding party members and every single wedding vendor; filtering out details that are not important to them. We know the catering staff doesn’t care when hair and make-up begin or what time first-look will take place and want to be respectful of their time.

We’re sure by now you have a Pinterest board filled with every wedding detail you could ever dream but now is the time to curate those images down to the inspiration you truly want for your special day. You can treat the Design Studio just like Pinterest by browsing photos or adding your own, but now we’ll be able to collaborate and comment on these images with you and your planning team members. Individual style guides can be created for each component of the wedding to help narrow down and organize the ideas that will bring your wedding day vision to life. This is the fun part!

This section keeps all those wedding “lists” stored in one central location and organized by category so you’re not sifting through hundreds of emails or Google docs. Throughout the months leading up to your wedding, we’ll load various note templates into your portal so you can work on tasks like song lists, processional order, family photo lists and more.
