Wedding Planning??

Hello everyone, i'm still kind of new to this so i apologize if i sound completely absurd. I pretty much would like to know if any of you know any good websites that will give me tips and ideas on wedding plans. My boyfriend of a little over a year, told me yesterday, that i should probably start studying up. (we have talked about marriage, and i think this is his way of telling me, to sort of prepare myself for the big question. I'm sure he's not going to ask tomorrow, or this week, and maybe not even this month. But  none the less, i know it's coming soon, so i'd like some help.) I've always been sort of a tomboy and have paid little to no attention to wedding ceremonies and plannings. Any help, advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. I'm really lost in the woods on this one, so i would very much appreciate if you ladies could help me :) thank you very much for your time.

Hi there. I don't know any web sites but thought I'd give you some thoughts.

Weddings are very individual and exactly what you do depends on you.  Some are really close to their parents and the parents help with expenses and thus, usually their mom helps.  Moms, aunts, grandmothers are all excellent resources for ideas.  Important to remain in the position of making sure the wedding is done to your liking (some parents can take over, try not to let that happen) but it might help to talk to them.  

Then you decide where you want to get married.  You can go away and have a destination wedding-----  and for that you google the city, and destination wedding or a hotel there and destination wedding.  Big hotels plan those all the time.  Or if you are traditional, you plan a church wedding.  Then you choose which church----  one around where you are right now or one back by where your folks live or his.  Talk with your soon to be fiance for what his feelings are.  As the mother of boys, I will tell you that your new mother in law will feel so indebted to you if you include her a bit.  Then you decide all the details after that----  big, small, or in between.  Dress, brides maids, venue for reception, food for reception, photographer, dj or band or whatever, flowers, party favors.  All that good stuff.  Or you do things quite simply.  Basically, you should start thinking of how you'll pay for it and that might help with all of these decisions.

My best advice is to do two things right away----  go to the store and get a bridal magazine or two and call and talk to your mom or another matriarchial woman in your family.  Those magazines are fun and timeless.  

Otherwise, just google your area and weddings and many sites will pop up or google the sites related to the bridal magazines.  

good luck and happy planning
