Today's post is a long-promised one…I have been adding to it little by little…Every time I discover a new tip or resource, it gets added to my personal list of go-to sites and to this post.
If there is anything we've learned from this wedding planning process, it's that it is learning process, and it is only enhanced and bettered with advice from everyone who has something to share.
So please feel free to pitch in and help us out!
Do you have a story about a destination wedding that was perfect/not-so-perfect? Do you have tips on how to make the planning process more efficient? Do you know of time saving tips? Possible on-line resources for all things wedding-related? Any interesting links?
I find that there is just so much knowledge floating around these days….Especially with the internet readily at our fingertips.There is a wealth of information just waiting there for you to find it. All you have to do is look.Sometimes knowing where to look is the hardest part, though.
One can spend countless hours sifting through useless information to find what they are looking for.This is one of those times that calls for friendly online sharing
Forums are especially helpful in this regard. With all the topics out there, it's hard to imagine that the what you might be looking for, hasn't already been covered in-depth by someone.
That is the beauty of the internet. Bringing like-minded people together through their interests, passions, and ideas.
I'd like to think that if you're reading this, you might be a family member, a friend, or even someone who just happens to be in the same shoes as me.
Maybe you're getting married.Or better yet, getting married overseas, just like us!Or someone who has already been married, and understands this process much better than I do.
Whoever you might be, if you are reading this, I hope that my friendly online sharing will help you.
Or at least interest you. Maybe even intrigue & inspire you to give these helpful resources a try!
I've had the pleasure of using a lot of online help throughout our planning process.This is especially important (and saves sooooo much time!) when planning a wedding in another country which requires timely, clear communication with a wedding planner.
I don't know what we would have done without the internet…Send mail? Could you imagine? Months between each correspondence? This wedding would have taken us years to plan!
I cannot stress the importance of having a planner who is quick and comfortable with technology, and is open to using alternative modes of communication like email and Skype.
Luckily for us, Nina is an expert! Organized, informed, and very efficient in communication.
She's helped us see the benefit of using all of these resources to research, make decisions and ultimately communicate with her every step along the way.
Some of the below points are our personal favorite picks, but also picks that were suggested to us by Nina, and have helped us tremendously thus far.
So without further ado, here are our TOP 10 picks of online resources we could NOT live without!Read more »
