Wedding Planning

When you first start planning a wedding, the process can seem completely overwhelming. You want everything to turn out perfectly down to the smallest detail (and who knew there were so many details!), but it can be difficult to know where to start. Fortunately, we have all the advice and inspiration you need to help plan the wedding you want. First, turn to our Wedding Planning Basics guide for everything from what to do when you first get engaged to the basics of wedding insurance (hint: You want it). Next, head over to the Wedding Style guide for thousands of real wedding decorating ideas from brides around the world, including creative wedding themes and gorgeous style ideas from preppy to homespun weddings. From there, you'll need to narrow down your wedding colors. View hundreds of stunning color combos and real wedding color inspiration in our Wedding Colors channel. Then it's time to start thinking about your Wedding Vendors. Planning a wedding takes a lot of help, so be sure to scour our Wedding Cakes, Wedding Flowers, and Wedding Stationery sections for tips on vendor contract points and ideas for getting wedding details that suit your style. Of course, there is more to a great wedding than the ceremony, so don't forget to head over to our Reception Ideas channel for wedding decorating ideas and other genius tips to wow your wedding guests. You can also find advice for getting awesome wedding music, amazing wedding photography, and wedding favors your guests will actually want. Planning a wedding abroad? We have top destination wedding tips for brides getting married away from their hometown. And in case your wedding planning gets tough, we have a Sticky Subjects channel to help answer your toughest planning and relationship questions. Or take a break from the planning with one of our fun quizzes, where you can find answers to questions like, "Are you a Bridezilla?" and "What's your best bridal hairstyle?" Enjoy!
