If you’re an event planner, party planner or wedding planner, you know there’s a lot to organize. Even if you’re the event planner at a specific venue, you know how much work it can be to simply set up getting a down payment for a date. Whether you’re a top professional or an event planner as a side hustle, you know that the software and websites designed for things like RSVPs, event registration, and even group gifting can eat a hefty percentage of your profits. Using Google Forms and Sheets to stay organized keeps things simple and easy to update, copy and tweak as needed for different events, and using the Payable add-on allows you to get paid in the same place. Here, we’re looking at the six free Google Form templates that event planners have been using to plan events flawlessly—saving time and money in the process.
With these templates, you can simply make a copy of the Form and tweak it to your specific event, toggle on the Payable add-on, and start collecting info and getting paid in minutes.
Simple Event Registration Form
Hosting a book club luncheon, a bachelorette party where everyone is chipping in for the limo, or a backyard barbeque graduation party? Using the Payable Addon for Google Forms you can find out who is coming to your event before event day, assign seats and collect payments easily and affordably. Many small events and one-time events have used this form template rather than committing to monthly fees or higher transaction costs.
Large Purchase Form
Your services aren’t free! If you need a simple way to charge for your event planning services, consider a Google Form that offers bulk buy or subscription options for the people who are booking your services. A Form makes it easy for you to get some client information while also taking a deposit, a partial payment or a lump sum.
Conference Registration Form
Whether you’re planning a corporate event or a yoga retreat, you need a way to collect registrant information as well as their payments. Use this template to quickly get you started on creating your conference registration and ticket sale form. Use one form for early bird sales, another for late comers. All information will be stored in the Google Sheet associated with the Form.
Wedding or Shower Registry Form
As an event planner, you’re often also helping people design their wedding or baby shower registries. But these days, so many couples prefer cash over gifts! Make it simple and save them money by setting up a Form with Payable. This Form shows you how to setup a quick and simple wedding registry. All gifts will be electronic money donations that go to your connected (PayPal, Stripe, or Square) account. You can create categories that people can contribute to and give them pre-set amounts and ideas. This is a great option for out of town guests or for collecting from multiple people for bigger purchases!
Venue Booking Form
If your event planning business is venue-based, you know how hard it can be to get venues booked and paid for. Using your adorable refurbished barn to host big parties? Maybe you’re in charge or rentals for the local community center or at church. Use this form to help you get started with an easy way to book your event spaces. Add the venue options, pricing, additional requests – anything that may streamline your booking process.
