Before We Begin...
You're engaged! That's kind of a big deal. And we're so glad you found our website. Think of us as your girlfriends who work in the wedding industry trenches. We've seen it all (yes, wedding crocs were once a thing!), and can't wait to share our expert advice with you.
Believe us when we tell you: We're on this wedding planning ride together. Here Comes The Guide is NOT a tech company. And you are NOT an algorithm. We care about you. So let's curl up on the couch in our yoga pants and dive right in! #wheresthewine
Curious about what else makes us different? Spoiler alert: Our company is run on girl power. And coffee. All the coffee.

We got you, boo. Check out our Covid Wedding Ideas and Articles here.
Find Your Wedding Venue
It's one of the most important aspects of wedding planning—and lucky for you, it's Here Comes The Guide's specialty!
We've got the inside scoop on thousands of fabulous wedding venues. And not only that, we break them down by venue style: From barn and beach, to woodsy and unique, to industrial, oh my! See prices and details, get discounts, and view gorgeous photos. And don't forget to use our list of questions to ask your wedding venue when you go on those site visits!
Find The Best Wedding Vendors
We've 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.
Don't see a vendor directory for your area? We may not have expanded there yet with our Certified Vendor Listings. #smallbusinessproblems
Sign up for MyGuide and we’ll deliver expert planning advice straight to your inbox. No generic marketing copy here! When you get an email from us, it's like getting a recommendation from your wedding-obsessed BFF.

We've got a ton of wedding planning articles to get you started, plus checklists and timelines, "best of" venue lists, tips for creating your wedding website, questions to ask your venue and vendors, and much much more.

See? Wedding Planning's EASY!
HA! Sorry, bad joke. But hopefully, the resources above make it just a bit more organized for you.
Speaking of organized, we love lists—so here's our basic wedding planning checklist to get you started.
Aaaand a bunch more checklists where that came from. (We told you we love lists.)

Hold up! Are you in our tribe?
Some clients may have paid to be placed in our editorial and some of these links may be affiliate; however, we never include a venue, vendor, or product unless they have a proper place here. This is part of our Core Values. We create our website first and foremost to be good for the couples using it to plan their Big Day. We won't stray from that for a few advertising dollars. #scoutshonor
