When it comes to the best, most comprehensive Wedding Planning Guides, Wedding Wire gets the bronze medal. In December 2018, Wedding Wire acquired our #2 ranked Wedding Planning Guide, The Knot. At least at the time of this review, the two services were still operating separately and with slightly different features on each platform.

So, what does Wedding Wire have to offer? Almost everything you could want, from the ultimate Wedding Checklist to drag-and-drop seating charts and much more. And, of course, it's all free to use, either on their traditional website or through their handy app.

Let's take a closer look at the top features you'll get when using Wedding Wire as your Wedding Planning Guide.

  • Checklists: add, edit, or delete any to-dos you need, or simply follow the premade checklist. You can easily see your progress, the next items needing attention, and how much you've already gotten done.
  • Budget: know how much you have to spend? Great! Wedding Wire will estimate how much you have to spend on each category (for example, attire, food, and venue). Use the platform to track your spending, as well as to manage vendor payments. You can customize your budget based on your needs and seamlessly monitor your costs.
  • Vendor Manager: find and hire vendors directly through the app or online platform. You can mark favorite vendors, compare them with each other with respect to reviews and pricing, and even add your own notes as needed. Wedding Wire's vendor database is extensive and came up with plenty of hits in most areas.
  • Guest List: import people from your contacts and/or add them one by one. You can quickly manage all of the details from dinner choices to "plus ones". Organize your guests by category (besties vs. exes?), sort with one click, and even collect all of your RSVP's as your guests give you a "yes" or "no" through your…
  • Wedding Website: create your unique site in just a few minutes. You can use the site to recommend local accommodations (and even offer special rates to your guests), add your gift registry, and keep everyone updated on all of the events leading up to and including the Big Day.
  • Seating Chart: this might be our absolute favorite part of using this Wedding Planning Guide. Create your floorplan - don't forget to map out the tables, dance floor, and anything else in your venue that's important (or in the way) - and drag-and-drop people from your guest list into their seat assignment. (Remember those besties and exes? Yeah, you might not want them at the same table. Or on the same side of the room.)
  • Gift Registry: Keep all of your registries in one spot. Wedding Wire makes it super-easy to sync with your gift registries from multiple retailers - so whether you've asked for camping gear from REI, cleaning supplies from Target, or the place settings you've had your eye on at Crate & Barrel, your friends and family can get one-stop shopping through your wedding website.

And yes, this planning guide has all of the tips and inspiration you'd get on other wedding-focused sites. Need ideas for dresses or rings? Not sure where to go on your honeymoon? You'll find tons of suggestions, including photos from real weddings, under the Dresses and Ideas links at the top of the page.

Wondering why Wedding Wire comes in third when compared with our first-place choice? It all comes down to user reviews. Most of the people who tried both Zola and Wedding Wire said that Zola's template options and designs for wedding websites were much more visually appealing. One person said that the user interface for Wedding Wire was much more advanced, and that the wedding sites available on WW "look like the web pages of 2005". (Interestingly, those comments were found on a user forum...on Wedding Wire! Kudos to WW for openness and transparency.)

That being said, Wedding Wire is still an excellent choice if you're looking for a one-stop shop for all of your wedding planning needs. Unless something changes in the future, Wedding Wire will probably remain tied with its new sister company, The Knot, with a very respectable 4.5-star rating.

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.
