I wanted to give everyone a heads up of some very cool online resources I happened upon recently that are available to you and your brides:

The Wedding & Party Network is an excellent venue to get ideas for vendors with whom you can develop relationships as well as lots of tips and ideas as to what is going on with weddings around the country. I know many wedding planners also plan many other types of events (like birthday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, anniversary parties, etc.), and this thorough site has lots of vendors and information on all sorts of parties and events.

There’s now a search engine specifically for weddings and wedding-related information (yes, really), and it’s at OmniBride. You know how hard it it sometimes to sort through all the muck you get when you do a wedding-related search on the big search engines … well, no more. OmniBride is a weddings-only search tool for finding specific wedding-related sites. Try it out today. (Oh, and they also have handy search portals for decor and fitness, too.

Want to hear some true wedding gurus share some of their secrets? Now you can on the Wedding Podcast Network. This fantastic site has podcasts/webcasts on all types of wedding-related topics – wedding consulting, relationships, travel, wedding fitness, and much more. Plus you should definitely check out their wedding expert podcasts, which features such names as Darcy Miller from Martha Steward Weddings, Mindy Weiss, Monica Hickey and many more.

All these are great resources to dive into and expand your already deep base of knowledge … have a great weekend, and happy planning.
