Welcome to The Wedding Depot Planning Portal! Bring your Big day to reality in five steps.


Streamline Your Big Day

Simply, Easily, Beautifully… on Budget!

Portal Overview: 

The program is divided into our simple 5 step process: 

Vision, Budget, Source, Plan, Create

We guide you through these key steps as simply and easily as we can.  Helping you to:

  1. Vision – Find your theme (consider the many themes from industrial to rustic), view our colour palette concepts & instant mood boards ideas
  2. Budget – Set your Budget (Decide your Spend | Guest Numbers) & advise you how to split it between your suppliers. 
  3. Source – Find your venue with a list of over 90 local options. Research the right suppliers for you using our suggested questions and checklists. 
  4. Plan – Choose your supplier team. Use the research undertaken in part 3 or refer to the many ready-to-go quotes for your suggested budget breakdown by category.
  5. Create – Bring it together with our calendar actions and budget check-in

Fly through these guided key topics quickly and easily for a simple streamlined process!

Then … for those of you who love to delve into the detail, there are over 60 sections with more being added on a regular basis! Refer to the full breakdown of the many topics covered below (click ‘show more’ at the bottom).
