You're Engaged! Now What?

1 } Sign Up For MyGuide

It’s not something that you have to do, but your MyGuide account will make it so much easier to save the wedding venues and vendors that you are interested in AND will give you the ability to see the special offers that these venues and vendors list. (Your info is safe with us: we don’t sell or share your information.)

2 } Find a Wedding Venue

You’ll get more info on more great wedding venues than you’ll find anywhere else. View virtual tours. Get special offers and discounts. And get our list of questions to ask your wedding venue.

3 } Find The Best Wedding Vendors

We’ve also gone to a lot of trouble to screen and certify all the wedding vendors you’ll see here. Why? We only want to have vendors on our site that we would recommend to our sisters and best friends. We have suggestions on what questions you should ask wedding vendors, too.

4 } Shop Around

Shop for a wedding dress at one of our carefully screened bridal salons. Check our Wedding Dress Trunk Show and Sample Sale calendar or our Bridal Fair calendar so you can see all the goods in person.

5 } Plan Your Honeymoon

Whether you’re looking for a destination honeymoon, a charming hotel for your wedding night, or a romantic weekend getaway, use our honeymoon section to find just the right place.

6 } Find Accommodations for Your Guests

Want to find a hotel where you can get discount room blocks for your wedding guests? Find hotels that will give you deals here.
