Let’s face it, planning a wedding can be stressful!
With all the work that goes into creating the wedding of your dreams, it’s no surprise that you might find yourself feeling a little overwhelmed. From finding that perfect person to marry, to booking a venue, building your guest list, and choosing your vendors, there’s a lot to think about.
The first big decision you will likely make is finding that perfect venue! At Mayflower Venues we have created a marketplace of nontraditional wedding venues to help you discover one that matches your style and vision. Whether you're looking for a night spent under the stars at a 250-year-old historic farm or an elegant estate affair, we have you covered.
Once you have decided on the venue, it’s time to start planning! It can be hard to know where to start or how to stay organized, but with the right tools planning your wedding can be a piece of cake! To help bring your special day to life, our venues partner with us to offer a complimentary online planning portal. This portal allows you to explore, organize, and collaborate all in one place.
Below are three ways Mayflower’s tools can help you effortlessly plan your fairytale wedding!
Mastering the logistics
With Mayflower it’s easy to become an expert on your wedding day. From day one, you will have access to key venue logistics and event planning information at the click of a button. With your customized planning portal you can find answers to frequently asked questions such as what size tent should I rent, or what are the best lighting options. You can also find things like preferred vendor recommendations, venue planning maps and local attractions to help you pull your big day together with ease.
Say goodbye to that overflowing inbox or shared drive black hole! Your planning portal helps you stay organized with in-app messaging, custom planning checklists, and tools for document and vendor management. This allows you to ditch those excel sheets and switch to an account made just for you!
Every planning portal comes with a complimentary wedding website on us! You can choose your own design template and even personalize it with fun photos and stories to make it your own. This allows you to easily provide key details to your guests about your event, like your itinerary for the weekend and travel directions. You can even collect and manage your RSVPs!
