Event Planning Resources

This event planning resource page is for you to easily find a list of recommended services, products, and companies that will help you. My promise to you is that I won’t put anything on this page that I haven’t verified and/or personally used. 

There are some affiliate links below and I may receive a commission for your purchase, but at no cost to you nor an increase in price. In fact, many of these great companies are giving our community special discounts that I’m passing on to you!

Most Recommended Resources

99Designs

Need a logo or promotional materials designed? We love 99designs because it’s affordable & more than one designer works on your project at one time so you can choose one you like the most!

WordPress Elegant Themes

WordPress is far superior as a web publishing platform for any kind of website and you can accomplish a lot more with WordPress over the long run. So, in my opinion, it’s not a matter of one over the other. WordPress wins hands-down!

SiteGround

Recommended by developers we trust; at Event Planning Blueprint we use SiteGround to host our sites because it’s reliable and faster (and if developers are using it then who are we to argue?!).

BlueHost

If SiteGround isn’t in your budget just yet, use Bluehost instead. It’s just $3.95/mo. and they offer great support.

FreshBooks

Accounting software that’s a must for any business owner. It’s easy to use; you can quickly bill your clients, set up reminders and get paid on time. The best part, it’s cloud based so you can access it from anywhere, see when your clients have opened the invoice, and track the time it takes to plan each event.

Event Planning Contracts

Get your event contracts in place. Don’t plan another event or wedding for your clients without these customizable contract templates for event and wedding planners.

99Designs

Canva

Get thousands of custom templates and stock images, easy-to-use editing features, and more. I use CANVA a lot to create social media images and marketing materials.

Social Media Tools

Commun.it

For building your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram communities. This tool tells you when people read posts most, helps you learn who needs your expertise and notifies you when you have a mention. (It’s a great platform for learning how to use Twitter!)

Tailwind

One of the most useful and accurate scheduling tools for Instagram and Pintrest is Tailwind (we use it too!). This is a must-have marketing tool that helps you find the best times to post and recommends hashtags to drive engagement.

SEMrush

see which articles are doing well for your competitors, which enables you to easily and quickly learn more about your local competition — or even clients or vendors you want to work with.
