Where to start with wedding planning websites
If you start to include Facebook groups, there are too many websites out there, claiming to be *the* place for all your suppliers. So which are the best wedding websites? In the throes of engagement bliss, it can be easy to sign up to anywhere that claims to help you with wedding planning! If you sign up, the best advice I can give is to use the website for the information and discounts it can give you. None of them will help passively… just a lot of emails!
So it’s up to you. Whichever site/s you choose to use, make sure you take advantage of the offers and discounts that you’ll find with the suppliers listed. Like any couple organising, we have our favourites sites. But you need to work out your favourites that fit your wedding vision and planning style ?

Other Super Useful Wedding Websites
Love My Dress (Facebook)
Consider this your Facebook hive mind of everything wedding – it’s a huge group of ladies (collectively known as Belles) at every stage of planning. With advice and support for any question you might have. Set up by the wedding blog, Love My Dress.
OK, so it’s a site of products. But we found it very useful to sit down as a couple and get a feel for what we each assumed we would have (e.g. do you both want a cake topper?) and what vision you have for your big day. Think of it as an alternative inspiration source for your decor and stationery.
