You Can NOT Plan Your Wedding Without The Knot!

    Most brides have heard about The Knot. Since their launch in 1996, The Knot brand has quickly established itself as the leading resource for the modern bride. From the most comprehensive wedding website, to in print wedding magazines, to TV specials...The Knot has reached millions of Brides world wide. 
   The Knot not only offers wedding trend inspiration but also information to local wedding vendors in your area to help you plan your big day. Here are a bit more about what The Knot can offer Brides today (from their site):

  • First-Class Fashion: The largest search-able gown gallery on the web with 20,000+ gown pictures from over 500 designers
  • Inspiring Images: Real wedding style and ideas from actual weddings, search-able by theme, location, season, and element
  • Local Resources: 13,000+ local florists, photographers, reception sites, and more in 50 cities
  • Personalized Tools: Interactive checklist, budgeter, guest list manager, and wedding web page builder
  • Modern Advice: 1,000+ articles on all wedding-related topics, plus answers to etiquette questions
  • 24/7 Community: Personal profiles, blogs, boards, hosted chats, and member web pages
  • Convenient Shopping: The web's largest wedding supply retailer with 1,000+ accessories, favors, books, attendant gifts, and more
  • Lifestyle Registry: The Knot and Macy's connect couples to gifts that suit their everyday lives
  • The Knot TV: 24/7 streaming original programming featuring bridal fashion shows, makeovers, honeymoon specials, real wedding videos, and inspiration from celebrity wedding planners and wedding TV personality Carley Roney (more than 1.5 million streams/month)

   When a bride starts browsing The Knot's site, they will soon be asked to register. This is free to do and allows The Knot to tailor your browsing experience geographically. You will then have the ability to search for local wedding vendors in your area and also create a wedding profile to keep track of all of your wedding details.  The Knot also offers engaged couples the opportunity to create a (free) personal wedding website. I did this when I was planning my wedding and it served as a fun way to keep family member up to date and involved in your planning. Note: When I logged in today to look around I was welcomed with the message "Welcome back Tori. You've been married for 1,646 days."  :) When I was planning my wedding  I definitely used The Knot as my main resource. The access to endless wedding information was very useful and saved me a lot of time (not to mention money- bridal magazines are very expensive).
    The Knot has recently expanded to serve couples beyond their big day. With sister sites The Nest and The Bump it seems this brand will continue to grow with you for years to some.

The only problem that we have had with the knot so far is that the knot really only advertises really expensive things, but we are thinking about using one of their mini websites for out wedding. Great review!

Their "Knot Shop" sector usually has really reasonably priced wedding trinkets, favors, gifts and such.

I couldn't have planned my wedding without the knot. It's been almost 8 years, so I was out of the loop & unaware of the bump and nest... SO bummed about missing out on the bump while I was pregnant, but will check out the nest for sure. thx!
