As a wedding pro, I’ve learned one key thing when it comes to image-sharing platforms: there’s a huge difference between sharing images and sharing images strategically. While developing inspiration for a wedding’s aesthetic is crucial, we need a platform that allows for so much more than that. From nailing down venues to talking through seating arrangements, Aisle Planner’s Style Guide feature allow you to share images in a number of ways, in one cohesive place.

So here are my four favorite ways to use our Style Guides strategically:

Recommending Venues

  • Create Style Guide templates for venues you want to share with your client, and upload photos for each.

  • When it's time to recommend venues, add the venue templates for those venues that would be the best fit to your project.

  • Once venue selection is finalized, delete the others from view.

  • Creating Style Guides for each venue is particularly easy for planners who keep folders with images of local venues on their desktop (it’s a simple drag-and-drop).

Creating Mood Boards

  • Create a solid foundation for a wedding’s aesthetic by using Style Guides as mood boards.

  • Our Style Guides differ from other image-sharing platforms (okay, Pinterest) because they allow for intuitive conversation on images: your client gets an email as soon as you comment on a photo and can respond from that very email without ever having to log into Aisle Planner.

  • As always, it’s a simple drag-and-drop process if you already have inspiration folders created on your computer.

Finalizing Equipment & Decor Options

  • Create a Style Guide for each design element (escort-card displays, linens, place settings, etc.) and upload top contenders to each guide.

  • Once final selections have been made, save each to a new Style Guide (which you could name something like, “Final Design Elements”).

  • Upload a photo of the final tabletop design here as well for your team members and vendors to reference.

Combining Design Concepts & Sketches

  • Combining photographs, graphics and, yes, even that killer sketch you did on the back of an old receipt in a Style Guide is a powerful way to define a wedding’s aesthetic in one cohesive place that consists of more than just images from the web.

  • We’ve found that vendors love this feature, as it gives them a solid reference point as they work to bring your client’s ideas to life.

These are just a few of my favorite ways you can make the most of Aisle Planner Style Guides—don’t be afraid to experiment and come up with more.
