While it hasn't been around as long as other sites, WeddingWire is our top pick of the wedding planning websites. Its user-friendly planning tools, massive vendor database and collection of bridal blogs make it easy for brides-to-be to cover every detail of the wedding from one spot. It’s also bolstering our economy: WeddingWire has been twice recognized with the Inc. Hire Power Award for creating American jobs, and was ranked #21 in Washington Post’s Top Workplaces 2014 List. In addition, WeddingWire has recently launched EventWire, an online resource that connects corporate and social event planners to vendors.

The Good

  • 200,000+ Vendors
  • Free Planning Tools
  • Great Blogs

200,000+ Vendors

Vendors, vendors and more vendors: WeddingWire features over 200,000 nationwide! You can browse, compare and book vendors all from the site. You can also read over one million reviews from couples who have used the vendors. WeddingWire also produces an annual list recognizing the top five percent of its vendors. The results are based on client reviews and surveys about the vendors' overall quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism... And if you still want more options, you can consult WeddingWire's calendar of bridal shows, which features forty of the largest cities nationwide.

Free Planning Tools

WeddingWire also offers several free planning tools: to-do checklists, seating charts, inspiration boards and personal vendor management, plus features to track budgets, payments, guest lists, RSVPS, gifts and more. Additionally, there are more than 400 design themes from which to choose when creating a couples site with their website editor software. On top of that, the creme de la creme of WeddingWire's couples site options is the WedSocial app: guests can use it to track wedding details, get directions and upload photos during the wedding, which are posted instantly for all to see.

Great Blogs

In addition to its own blog, WeddingWire also imports fourteen bridal blogs into one searchable database, making it easy to pull up several blog posts about a particular trend or idea without even having to open another browser tab. WeddingWire is also the only site on which you can listen to suggested songs for the bride's entrance, ceremony, first dance and more. The lyrics are often included, too. Many other sites list song suggestions - you'll have to head over to Spotify or YouTube to hear them.

The Bad

  • Limited Communication

Limited Communication

Communicating with your guests through WeddingWire is limited to simply posting information on the couple's website. WeddingWire doesn't offer any options to email Save the Dates or reminders to the bridal party, nor will it integrate with any of the major social media platforms. If you want to reach out to your guests, you'll have to do so directly from your email provider or social media accounts.

The Bottom Line

WeddingWire is easy-to-use and offers an array of planning tools, vendor options and blogs - all for free. With the exception of email, it features resources and information for every aspect of the wedding planning process. Furthermore, WeddingWire's ample resource offerings and accolades as an employer are a solid indicator that the company strives to provide a quality experience for all involved. It's also the only wedding planning website we reviewed that offers apps for either iPhone or Android, so the planning doesn't stop no matter where you are or what device you're on.

It could be a little more simple but there is the option to remove and add what you'd like.
