One thing you can count on from

The I Do List – we listen to our clients!

That’s why we’ve put together some frequently asked questions about what it’s like working with a virtual wedding planner and the benefits of our online planning tool!

1. Who is IDL?

The I Do List (IDL) is your personal virtual wedding planner that provides modern planning solutions for modern couples, nationwide!

2. How Did IDL Come to Be?

Simple! Most couples today not only plan, but pay for their own wedding. Over the years, we’ve seen a growing need among young professionals that are trying to not only balance a thriving career and social life, but also plan a tasteful, stylish wedding, too. One day, we said to ourselves, “How can we help these couples plan their own wedding to better fit “them” without breaking the bank, and keeping it stress free?” Viola – just like that, The I Do List was born.



3. How does IDL work?

It’s so easy! We help guide your wedding planning journey by providing the tools, the team, and the expertise you need so you can design and organize the wedding of your dreams.

4. Which package does IDL recommend?

Since most couples have never planned a wedding, we often recommend the Custom & Complete Package – it’s the biggest bang for your buck. In addition to direct access to your personalized online wedding planning tool, this package provides you a custom budget from your personal virtual wedding planner followed by two one-hour consultations to discuss your vision, progress, get general questions answered, receive tips as the wedding approaches, and more. In your third and last consultation hour before your wedding, you and your virtual wedding planner will discuss final details, how to create your day-of timeline, and other “best practice” tips only a pro would know to make your wedding day effortless.




5. What questions will my virtual planner answer for me?

Anything you can think of (even if you just need someone to vent to)!

6. Are my consultations in person?

No – and that’s the best part! You and your wedding planner can talk via email, phone, Skype, or Google Hangout. No matter your preferred method, you’re virtual wedding planner will be right there ready and waiting!



7. Can I add additional consultation hours to my package?

Absolutely! We understand that every situation is different and you may need to add additional hours to help plan your dream day. Additional consultation time can be added at a rate of $100.00 per hour. Contact your consultant directly to add extra hours.


8. What makes IDL different from other online wedding planning tools I’ve seen like ‘The Knot’ or ‘Wedding Wire?’

We are real professional wedding planners that offer real wedding experiences. Every phone call is answered, every email is replied to, and a real professional wedding planner with actual years of wedding industry experience conducts every consultation. IDL doesn’t just provide a ‘to-do’ or ‘check’ list’s – we provide an experience to help you tell your story on your wedding day.

9. Will my virtual wedding planner be present at my wedding to handle day-of-duties like set-up, schedule of events and breakdown?

No. As virtual wedding planners, our services are designed to be from afar to help you plan and organize everything leading up to the day of your wedding. If you are interested in one of our full-service planning packages (which may include ‘day-of-duties’ and much more), please contact your planner or contact us directly at


10. Do you offer other services besides virtual planning and consulting?

Yes! As experienced wedding planners, most of our team members offer traditional services including full planning, month-of, or day-of coordination. You do not have to be a consultation client to utilize our traditional services. Contact your planner directly or email for more information and pricing.


11. I don’t live in the U.S., can I still utilize IDL?

Of course! Since our tools are web based and consultations occur via phone, email, Skype, or Google Hangout, we can work with couples anywhere!

12. My wedding is a destination wedding, can I still use IDL’s services?

Yes! Again, our tools are web based and you can access them anywhere. Our planners are experience in all types of wedding including destination. In fact, it’s probably MORE useful for you to use IDL as there are many things couples don’t think of when it comes to planning a destination wedding!


13. How long after my wedding will I have access to my online account and tools?

We will archive your wedding account for two weeks after your wedding date. After two weeks, you will no longer have access to any information or documents stored in your account. With that in mind, we suggest downloading any information you need prior to your wedding.
