Top 5 Wedding Planning Websites

  • Oct 28, 2009
So, as some of you know, I'm engaged to @Nando1 but, I was trying to get through two of my BFF's weddings before I planned my own. Here's my list of sites that I've used to help plan my friend's weddings, they all live far from me and I've had to plan many a wedding online. Now, I'm finally starting on my own and am looking to these to help me out. Hopefully, this list will help anyone that needs to plan a wedding!
The Knot
The ultimate one-stop shop for B2Bs (bride-to-be's) and most popular of all the sites, The Knot covers everything. It has an iPhone App, Wedding911, checklists for everything, a timeline of to-do's, every piece of advice possible, wedding websites, and everything else you could possibly need.
Brides.com has great ideas for favors, DIY, dresses, beauty, etc. It has a way for you to save the images of dresses, make-up, cakes, etc that you like so that you don't have to worry about where to find it when you come back to the site.
Real Simple Weddings
I love everything Real Simple- it is one of my fave magazines because it seems to solve all life's problems um....really simply. I also love how it focuses on DIY because in this economy, that's what we have to do. For their weddings (which is both a part of the realsimple.com website and a magazine), they help to squash all of your wedding anxieties.
Budget tips, advice from other brides, "savvy steals and deals", share your photos and your wedding journey, a matchmaking system to match you with the perfect vendors, favors/accessories/fashion/etc in their store and all sorts of fun things to cover your wedding needs.
An upcoming actual television channel, the website actually feels like it covers everything. I'm new to the site so I'll have to add more when I discover more. It covers trends in cake, colors, themes, etc; it covers DIY, celebrity weddings, wedding supplies, vendors, you can create a registry, what to get the bride for each pre-wedding party, how to plan those parties, and pretty much everything else you could want.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

How interesting that these sites exist. A few years ago, folks had to get married all on their own.

or with a TON of magazines LOL...which I still buy and peruse because there's just something about a printed word and pictures that you can tear out for your planning binder.
