Welcome to our little guide to planning your wedding

HELLO!

If you’ve stumbled across our guide, that probably means you’re engaged. Let us start by extending you a huge congrats. We’re so glad you’re here! We know firsthand that wedding planning can be fun and exciting, but for many couples it can also be incredibly overwhelming. That’s why we created this 40-week guide (a little over nine months) to walk you from saying “yes” to saying “I do” with less stress and more fun.

ABOUT THIS GUIDE

Planning a wedding is like throwing a gigantic party with all of your friends and relatives. During the first four to six weeks, we’ll tackle the five key questions: When, Where, Who, What, and How Much. Each week we’ll take a deeper look into a specific aspect of the planning process and give you a checklist of items to tackle that week. As we move forward, we’ll get into the nitty gritty details of planning your wedding, and we’ll continue to provide you with a checklist to keep your planning on track.

Unlike most guides, we provide you with the information you need when you need it. We took a hard look at all of the pieces that go into planning your wedding. Not just the big things like your rings or venue or even your wedding dress, but the small things too, like the conversations that will take place between you and your fiancé or the time you’ll spend looking at invitations online before you’re actually ready to order them.

We couldn’t have done this without an amazing group of wedding planners, stylists, designers, photographers, videographers, and bakers who share words of wisdom and expert planning tips along the way. Visit our contributors page to see who they are and what they’re all about.

Our sincere hope is that no matter what kind of wedding you’re planning, you’ll find this resource invaluable for decoding the world of weddings, de-stressing, and bringing it all to life while thoroughly enjoying the process.
