    1. The Knot
    The Knot is an informational wedding planning website made by power couple, Carley Roney and David Liu, who realized after planning their own wedding that couples need a resource to stay organized when preparing for the big day. For almost 20 years The Knot has helped couples not only stay hands-on, but on budget while planning wedding festivities. [1] The Knot has several tools on their website that help in various stages of wedding planning, the most noteworthy is The Knot's Wedding Budget Calculator. This budget calculator allows you to put in an overall cost that you want to spend on your wedding, which then subtracts prices as you fill in check points like booking a venue or selecting a caterer. This keeps you in “the know” on where you stand with your budget.

    2. Pinterest
    Pinterest is a classic go-to when you are still in the brainstorming stages of creating your wedding. Pinterest allows you to take 'pins' from fellow pinners or corporations, and pin them to your own 'board,' which then allows you to have a collection of visualized ideas for your wedding. Whether it is venue decorations, wedding cake designs, or color themes, Pinterest has it all. This digital scrapbook is the perfect place to find those DIY plans for your wedding. While Pinterest is a great resource, it's important to remember that there are a lot of unnecessary ideas out there. Be careful not to go overboard.
