Hi, I’m Mrs. Peony and I am a Google Addict.
Google Maps, Google Docs, Google Notebook, and Google Calendar are integral parts of my digital life. I have an unhealthy obsession with Google Reader and I have it open at all times. Gmail is my email service of choice.
I Google everything and anything…I’ve gotten so good at it, in fact, that people are usually amazed by the speed and efficiency at which I can find obscure information off the web.
(It also doesn’t hurt that Mr. Peony works for Google. And yes, their cafeteria is fantabulous.)
Today, Google released a large collection of templates for Google Docs. When I saw that “wedding planners” was the first template mentioned in the blog post announcing this new feature, I knew I had to share it with Weddingbee readers.
Here are my favorites:
A bit old-fashioned, but a great presentation/slideshow nonetheless.
The best part about this spreadsheet is that since it can be shared, you can ask your computer-saavy guests to fill in their own information.
An extensive template with different sheets for budgeting, guests, schedule, etc.
This budget spreadsheet rivals those found on many popular wedding-planning websites. They even have a separate sheet for estimating your budget percentages.
Like the budget spreadsheet above, this looks very professional and thorough.
Again, a very thorough and handy sheet.
There are currently a total of eight wedding-themed templates and you can view them all here. You can also take a non-wedding related template and customize it for your wedding planning needs. For example, I think the Project Timeline template can be used to schedule and see your wedding planning progress in a very visual format (and perfect for charts/graphs/spreadsheets geeks like myself).
While these templates certainly aren’t the best-looking or as detailed as the spreadsheets created by other bees, I think that they’re a great starting-off point for those who prefer not to start from scratch. Plus, they can all be shared so that your fiancés, wedding party, family, and friends can all pitch in.
