Wedding Planning Made Easy

A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE for Busy Brides-to-Be.

Ready to create the wedding of your dreams with confidence and ease?

The proposal is over, you've shared the excitement with your family and friends, and you're slowly getting used to becoming a "Mrs".
Now what?

But if we're being honest, you're starting to feel completely overwhelmed by everything you have to do to plan your dream wedding.
You don't really know what tasks to tackle when, and in what order, so you just sort of start a bunch of things at once, never finishing anything.
Staying on top of your growing to-do list feels impossible, especially given everything else you have on your plate (um, hello full-time job!).
You're trying to plan your wedding on a budget without hiring an expensive wedding planner, but the sheer amount of things to be done is getting out of control.

It's possible for you to show up on your wedding day,
not feeling completely burnt out.

The Best Wedding Advice for the Bride to Be


Be completely confident planning your big day.

Save yourself hours of time and be much more deliberate with how you spend your precious wedding planning minutes.

Know that your wedding is completely aligned with you and your partner’s values and goals.

Save thousands of dollars on your big day between planning it yourself and reducing expenses with virtually every vendor.

Be inspired and excited throughout the process.

Truly enjoy one of the most important days of your life, knowing all the details have been taken care of.

My story started off pretty bleak.

I'm Kate, a lifestyle blogger who was just like you not too long ago.

When I was planning my wedding last year, I felt incredibly overwhelmed. I’ve always been organized, but I had never planned a major event before, and I didn’t know where to start.

I wasted countless hours on Pinterest, mindlessly scrolling through color schemes and dress silhouettes. I spent forever looking for wedding planning templates and the answers to my many questions. I often felt lost and confused.

The pressure to plan the perfect day kept me up at night, and I kept worrying I was forgetting something important or leaving things out altogether.

While this was supposed to be one of the happiest and most exciting times of my life, I couldn't fully enjoy it. I wondered why I couldn't just enjoy wedding planning like all the smiling brides on Pinterest. It was like something was wrong with me.

I knew something had to change.

I decided to take back control of planning my wedding and rely on my research and organizational skills. Working with my partner, I got clear on what was more important to us for our wedding day. I made myself a detailed wedding planning timeline, including everything I needed to do with deadlines. I created spreadsheets to track everything from my guest list to wedding expenses. And I became incredibly deliberate about how I spent my time and money.

My efforts paid off. Once I figured out the keys to making my wedding planning a whole lot simpler, I was able to ditch the overwhelm and start actually enjoying the process. Our wedding went off without a hitch, and it was everything I dreamed it would be.

I started sharing my best tips and top advice on my blog, Beyond the Safe Harbor. Incredibly, every single wedding-related blog post I wrote went viral, and over the past 10 months, my advice has helped almost 20,000 brides plan their special days.

And now, I've pulled together my countless hours of research, all my best spreadsheets, and every last piece of advice and wrapped it all up into a guide to help other brides-to-be avoid the overwhelm and plan their wedding with greater ease (and fun!).

What Brides are Saying About Some of the Tools

I absolutely LOVED the Wedding Planning Checklist. Some stuff I wouldn’t have even thought of doing or even remembering. Kate has put SO much thought into not only the big stuff but all the small little details that go on behind the scenes. I will be using this and recommending my brides to go to Kate and get this checklist because it will help SO much with any type of wedding planning.

After compiling so many different to-do lists in many different locations, I felt like I just couldn’t stay on top of the tasks that needed to be completed… until I found the Wedding Planning Checklist and Budget. It's like having your own personal wedding planner without the hassle of hiring someone or paying a hefty fee. These tools have allowed me to go at my own pace and keep track of things as I go. I will definitely be recommending this product to all of my newly engaged friends as they embark on their own wedding planning journeys.
Emily B.
The Wedding Planning Checklist is fantastic. My favorite part was the details that follow the wedding. Not many checklists out there remind you of what to do the day after – like returning rentals. This is great for anyone out there who is looking to stay ahead of their wedding day! This combined with the budget was LITERALLY the ULTIMATE Wedding Checklist. Keeping track of what you pay for every little thing is A LOT to do, I haven’t been able to do it and I’m the planner of the family. Thank you Kate!
