Christmas is the most popular time of the year to get engaged. I should know, as my husband proposed last year on Christmas Eve. The holiday season is so magical and it becomes even more special when your love pops the question.
So if you said “yes” this holiday season, here are a few of my favorite websites to get your started with the wedding planning process.
Before you delve into all these wonderful sites, however, I have an important piece of advice to share. The internet (and books and magazines in print) are full of literally millions of amazing wedding ideas. The bottom line, however, is that at the end of the day you need to choose things for your wedding that make you feel happy and are special for you and your future spouse.
Of course along with all these wonderful ideas can come lots of price tags. Don’t get too overwhelmed with all the wonderful ideas. Just find what is special for you and your wedding day is sure to be amazing!

Here a few sites I used while wedding planning. Purchasing an actual wedding magazine was something I really planned to do, but with a scary budget already looking me in the eye, I couldn’t bring myself to shell out the $10 for the magazine.
The Knot is a good place to start. I will admit I found it a bit overwhelming though I did use it to make our wedding website.
The Broke Ass Bride is one of the cutest and most creative wedding websites I came across. I recommend the book and the website.
If you want to look at beautiful wedding pictures to start getting some ideas of what you want your wedding to look like, I recommend Style Me Pretty.
If you’re style runs a little more to the eclectic, you’ll love The Rock and Roll Bride.
I also enjoyed The Wedding Bee. You can ask questions in the forum section and get real answers from other brides.
Getting help and advice from friends and family is really what made my wedding come together so beautifully, but the internet was a good place to start getting ideas.
Best of luck to all you new brides and grooms to be!
