Wedding Planning Resources

Planning your wedding can seem like an overwhelming task to even the most organized and type A bride. Getting vendors secured on time, finalizing orders, keeping guests in the loop on plans, and attempting to have fun while doing it can be quite the challenge. The good news, there are many planning resources out there to help. 

Wedding Inspiration Websites
There are hundreds, maybe even thousands of wedding oriented websites that will give you great ideas for your wedding day. With so many to choose from though, it might be hard to figure out where to start. Here are some of my favorite websites to get your creative juices flowing:

Books & Guides
When you're first getting started you may want to invest in a planning book or binder to help you get the process started. If you are looking to work with Proud to Plan on full planning, these books might not be for you, but if you are hoping to handle most of the planning yourself, and you want our help for day of coordination, these books might be a good place to start:

Your Wedding Website
One of the most common and easiest wedding websites to create is through The Knot. Through their online program you can choose from over 100 design options and have your very own URL: brideslastnamegroomslastname.ourwedding.com. Through this site you can tell your guests your love story and share your proposal, give them details about your ceremony and reception, introduce them to your bridal party, and even link them to your registry. It's a simple location for guests to go to find out all the details for the day, and an easy way for you to keep details in order. A wedding website is a must!
