SPEAKER FEATURE: AISLE PLANNER

We have had the pleasure of working with Aisle Planner on every LVL Academy workshop to date.  And there's a reason why: Aisle Planner has changed the way we plan weddings for the better.  Not a week goes by in our office where we don't say "What would we do without Aisle Planner??" 

It is an online platform that we believe every planner should be working with.  This week, we interviewed Tayler Cusick-Hollman of Aisle Planner to give you an inside peek at the company and how it works.

And STAY TUNED!! We have word that this Friday, there will be an Aisle Planner- related giveaway that you won't want to miss!

 

LVL Academy: Tell us all about Aisle Planner!

Tayler: Aisle Planner’s mission really is simple: to give wedding professionals the tools they need to do their job well and to do it seamlessly.

Aisle Planner is the brain child of Christina Farrow, a long time professional wedding planner who had a planning and rental business in Hawaii.  After 15 years in the industry (and more 3-ring binders than she could count) she had the idea for an online platform that would streamline her process and allow her to access anything, about any of her clients, anywhere.  After a lot of research, a ton of notes, and finding the right technology partner to help her build it, Aisle Planner became a reality!

That was back in 2013 and Aisle Planner has changed so much since then.  Now, there is a small but dedicated team working with Tina out of the office in Encinitas. Aisle Planner has come really far from its first planning tools back in 2014 and there is still so much to come!

LVL Academy: What are the future goals for Aisle Planner?

Tayler: We’ve always had lofty goals and it has been so exciting to see them come to life!  The ultimate goal is to create an ecosystem where planning professionals, vendor partners, and their clients (booked and potential) can seamlessly work together on their weddings and events.  And, over the past 6 months we’ve rounded out our suite of planning tools with the business tools that are foundational to bringing that ecosystem to life.  Now all of the wedding planners and professionals who use Aisle Planner can manage their leads, send proposals, contracts, invoices, and collect payments online through our tools.

In the short term, we are currently working on refining some of our existing tools (there is something highly requested coming very soon!) as well as a couple big projects that I’ve been sworn to secrecy about :)  Stay tuned!

LVL Academy: What are some of the top reasons why Aisle Planner is the number 1 tool for wedding planners?

Tayler:
1. Designed by industry pros who know what it takes to plan the perfect event.
2. Helps you to make a great first impression by giving you stylish and professional tools to power your business.
3. Keeps things from slipping through the cracks since every detail is neatly organized and you can assign tasks, due dates, and receive notifications
4. We grow as you do. Aisle Planner is ever evolving based on our goals as well as yours!
