These days wedding planning doesn’t have to be so hard. Can you imagine actually having to break out the PHONE BOOK to plan your wedding? And you have no idea how crappy each business is until you visit each one in person? Now THAT must have been rough. Nowadays you can tell how legit a business is just from their website (Hint: If they use Comic Sans, RUN!)
With new wedding websites popping up everyday and apps up the wazoo, here are our top three websites to save you time and money while wedding planning.
Color geeks beware, you will spend HOURS on this site. COLOURlovers is an online community for colorphiles. Browse hundreds of thousands of color palettes using search terms like “wedding,” “afternoon,” “bride,” or “cheerful.” This site is perfect for helping brides decide on a wedding color scheme, flower combinations or bridesmaid dresses. Print out your favorite schemes and take them with you when you’re out shopping! Check out our own COLOURlovers profile for a few original MarryThis color schemes!

It goes without saying that Pinterest is probably the best tool EVER invented for wedding planning. It’s pathetic how much time I spend on Pinterest … seriously. In case you’re new to the scene, Pinterest is an image sharing site that allows you to save and organize all the beautiful things you find on the web. Arrange your pins into separate inspiration boards like “bridesmaid dresses,” “cakes,” or “centerpieces.” Pinterest is the absolute BEST way to mix and match wedding images from your favorite blogs. Visit the MarryThis Pinterest profile for all the latest and greatest in weddings!
The Urban Barn Room Planner is a relatively new craze. It’s an interactive room planner that allows you to arrange and place furniture within a space. Enter custom dimensions of your floor plan and arrange your heart out (plus, it’s to scale)! While this tool is primarily used for interior design, it is also the BEST way to arrange the layout of your ceremony or reception venue! After you’ve found the perfect floor plan, print it out to give to your day of coordinator for seating assignments. Win win!
