Planning a wedding can take a lot of time. Where should you start and what decisions should you all make? Recently, there has been a new development in the form of Artificial intelligence (AI) and ChatGPT from OpenAI. If you feel like taking a different approach to this whole project: plan your wedding with ChatGPT.
We offer you a helping hand by showing you how to use ChatGPT (version 3.5 is free) to plan your wedding. You can also use it for gaining inspiration, make organizational tasks simple and have texts written. We also discuss the disadvantages of ChatGPT for your wedding.
Perhaps good to know in advance: we are fans of wedding planners and professional master of ceremonies. This blog post is purely to make some tricky parts just a little easier. We’ll give you a few prompts for a wedding: who knows, maybe you can do something with them!
ChatGPT’s capabilities when planning a wedding
Use ChatGPT for getting inspiration. For example, for an overview with what wedding themes there are or what type of wedding venue you can choose from. Keep in mind here that you can’t get images yet via this AI. For inspiration on this, you could look on Pinterest.
Sparring and inspiration
ChatGPT can give you keywords that will help in your further search. For example, that wedding photos of moments are often called journalistic wedding photography or that there are subtle differences between a rustic or vintage theme for your wedding.
ChatGPT for organizing your wedding
Use this handy tool to create a wedding checklist. For example, enter“provide me with a detailed checklist for organizing a wedding, keeping in mind when I need to arrange certain items.”
You can also choose to let it help you create a detailed script for the day. In doing so, enter what parts will take place on your wedding day, so that you get an answer that fits your questions.

Another option is that ChatGPT can give you information on how to set up a budget breakdown for your wedding. Here you can get advice on what normal amounts are, but keep in mind that ChatGPT is based on information up untill September 2021. So prices will be higher by now.
- How should we divide our wedding budget of 20,000 euros between the most important expenses?
- What are some ways to save on our wedding costs?
- How can we create a wedding budget statement to keep track of our expenses?
How do I find my ideal wedding venue with ChatGPT?
Use the AI program to brainstorm what type of wedding venue suits your needs. For example, ask to find the perfect wedding venue in the Utrecht area . Or“give 10 different types of wedding venue and the advantages and disadvantages of getting married at this type of venue.”
Then get to work making a checklist for yourself. What should your ideal wedding venue look like? What is important to you? You can always ask if the AI assistant can help you make a list of aspects to consider when choosing a wedding venue.
Personal words by AI
While I would not quickly recommend having your personal vows written by AI, you can get advice on how long personal vows can be, what you should definitely remember when writing personal vows and when to say these personal vows.
Wedding guests can also be helped to write a speech for a wedding with ChatGPT. You can get tips on structure and applying for humor. Again, of course, you don’t want completely superficial speeches with no substance, but it’s all about the personal anecdotes here. As long as those are real, the speech will also have depth.

Unique and creative ideas for thank yous and other wedding details.
Are you thinking about giving a wedding thank you gift, at the end of the evening? Again, you can brainstorm about this with AI. Just as you can also look for personal elements that can make your wedding day extra personal. Or how about ideas to involve your guests in the wedding ceremony?

Here’s why you can’t plan your entire wedding with ChatGPT AI
While ChatGPT can go a long way in helping you plan your wedding, there are several reasons why AI is not going to replace a complete wedding planner. The main reasons are as follows.
1. ChatGPT cannot talk to others in real time
A live conversation is still not possible. You can of course chat yourself, but it is not possible for AI to call up a wedding venue and immediately ask for a quote that suits your needs. And while this is going to be possible in the near future, it’s still more convenient to have the conversation and express your wishes directly yourself.
2. ChatGPT is a little behind
The information on which this AI is trained lags. The database is filled with information until September 2021. So if you want to know something about the latest wedding dress trends, popular color combinations or want to know if a wedding venue is still open (or has since closed) you can’t arrange this via ChatGPT unfortunately. In addition, sometimes you notice that information is not quite correct or is incomplete. So absolutely keep checking everything yourself.
3. ChatGPT is a language model and not a human being
As magical as ChatGPT is, there is no human interaction. AI can help you generate ideas and organize information, but it does not know your past history. What are your motivations, what makes you as a couple so unique?
So still use recommendations from friends or acquaintances. They can also help you make (emotional) decisions. That empathy is often very important in planning a wedding.
Find wedding photographer with ChatGPT
We are wedding photographers ourselves, so it’s only natural that we give you some tips and prompts for this as well. You can use the AI to figure out, for example, what to consider when booking a photographer. Or consider learning more about the wedding photography styles out there, what questions to ask during the introductory meeting with your wedding photographer and how to review a portfolio.
Wedding prompts about wedding photography:
What styles of wedding photography are there? List the differences in a bullet list.
How can we assess a wedding photographer’s portfolio and compare multiple photographers?
What questions should we ask during the introductory interview?
