A PRACTICAL WEDDING

Visit Site

Cost:

Free

If you're looking for a wedding planning guide from a company that actively works "to make the wedding industry a more feminist and diverse place", you'll want to check out A Practical Wedding.

As you'll see from your first visit to the site, this service endeavors to promote businesses that are women-, LGBTQ+- and POC-owned - and to welcome and embrace couples in those groups as well. You'll also find a healthy blend of photos and stories that feature plus-size individuals, non-Christian weddings (such as Muslim, Jewish, Hindu), and other non-traditional ceremonies.

Most people will want to begin with the Get Started page. You'll find some helpful starter info and links to everything from writing your vows to tips for booking a florist (and, interestingly, links to our highest-ranked Wedding Planning Guide's free checklist/app!). A Practical Wedding doesn't offer a gift registry, an app (or even a printable checklist), or many of the other all-in-one features found on our highest-ranked services, making this site feeling more like a DIY (which is fine if that's all you need - there's even a tab for that!).

You can also find a wide variety of user stories, advice and etiquette tips, and stories of real weddings featured by A Practical Wedding. Having a large wedding? Planning for a budget under $10K? Managing friend and/or family drama? You'll find all of that and more under the rest of the tabs at the top of the page. This site keeps it real.

A Practical Wedding has a Vendor directory, but unless you live in a major metro area, you might have to spend a lot of time sorting through all of the featured businesses for your entire state. (There's no ability to search by zip code.) In several metro areas, we found very few options for venues. For example, in Central Florida - think Disney, Cocoa Beach, springs and other places with natural beauty, etc. - the results list only included a Jamaica destination wedding and one ranch resort. Most of the other categories were similarly limited in options.

This wedding planning guide doesn't have all of the features found on our higher-rated services (like gift registries and apps that tie everything together right on your phone), and its limited scope of vendors is part of the reason for this site's lower overall ranking compared with other online resources. For those reasons, we think A Practical Wedding is probably best suited to couples who don't fit the traditional mold and want to see what other people have done to create the wedding of their dreams - and who don't need all of the bells-and-whistles of some of the more popular services.

You can also get inspiration and advice from real couples. Thinking of having a wedding in the woods during winter? Check out what other brides and/or grooms did - and maybe even get practical tips for staying warm and keeping everyone from getting wet! Not sure how to navigate tricky family dynamics, which friends to invite to be in the wedding party, or how to word an invitation that includes everyone? Most of these wedding planning guides have in-depth advice and answers to guide you.

You've got a lot on your mind already, so how can you tell which online wedding planning guide is the right fit for you and your significant other? Here are several factors to keep in mind as you consider what's available:

  • Cost. Most online wedding planning guides don't charge to use the service. If you're interested in a paid planning tool, will you get enough value out of what you pay to make it a better choice than a free option?
  • Services Offered. What kind of help or advice are you looking for? Do you need an all-in-one site that gives you access to an app, checklists, plus ideas and inspiration for everything from flowers to food? Or maybe you're just at the beginning stages of planning and want to know if there are any available venues in your area? Choose a wedding planning guide that fits your needs.
  • Inclusivity. If you're planning a non-traditional wedding, can you find resources on the site? Are there couples and stories that you can identify with that are featured in the photos and articles?
  • Use of Technology. With so much of today's world online, it makes sense that more couples are taking advantage of fully-featured tech tools to streamline their wedding planning. Are you interested in having an app that you (as well as friends and family) can use to update RSVP's, list and/or buy items on a gift registry, and more? Not every wedding planning guide offers that capability.
