Entertainment sets the tone for an entire event. Your music brings life to weddings and events. When your clients and their guests are remembering their special day, they’ll think of that song you played that made them feel everything at once and it will be with them forever. Music has that kind of power. We want to help you do what you do best by taking care of the project management of your business. That's why we've designed Aisle Planner as a fully customizable, all-in-one sales, marketing, and project management platform where you can promote your business, connect with leads, book new clients, and manage every job down to the very last detail. 



Marketplace Listing 

The AP Marketplace on The Aisle Guide is more than searchable listings. Knowing your audience and marketing in the right place is everything. Couples, wedding planners, and vendors come to our website looking for entertainment partners and that’s where they find you! Another positive attribute about the diversity of Aisle Planner and The Aisle Guide vs. a sole entertainment platform is that we build community, creating tools that all wedding and event professionals can use. You can come together and collaborate with other vendors making your services and experience more marketable. 

Clients in your area can find you quickly and easily by location and category. This is more beneficial than just putting out ads on multiple platforms since it’s a space specifically for you and the locations you service. We support you and want to showcase your talent by maximizing your listing in the following ways: 

  • We link all of the videos and playlists you have featured on Aisle Planner
  • Show of your portfolio 
  • Connect to your lead management tools
  • Provide analytics to help you track your ROI
  • Include reviews from clients and professional partners
