I'm sure most of you have heard of it. And if not, maybe you've seen their signs on the front doors of some of your favorite restaurants or a local flower shop. TheKnot.com is the hottest place for everything wedding advice.
Upon visiting the site today (no, I'm not getting married!) I noticed at the bottom that you can input your wedding date and it gives you a FREE personalized to-do checklist. In order to do this, I had to register for the site (and from an e-mail marketing professional standpoint, that's great!). You could register as a bride, groom, professional, bridesmaid, groomsman, etc. I registered as a professional, and selected wedding planner (trying to live my dream a little bit).
So, I'm going through and making up information. They ask what kind of wedding you're having, color scheme, and if its a religious/ethnic wedding. So, I chose a few random ones--I selected a Catholic, vintage wedding with a green and ivory color scheme.
Finally, once I got through this sign up (I could select some pretty neat offers, too), I got to see my checklist. Now, personally, I love checklists. And this one had literally everything! It separated it month by month, and wouldn't have a task disappear until it was checked off (but they never disappeared--just hid!)
After signing up and looking through the checklist, I noticed on the sidebar you could create a budget, your "save the dates", create a guest list and shopping list, among other things. This site has everything and anything you could think of about a wedding. I think this site is the perfect training document for any up-and-coming wedding planner!
One last thing about the knot. As a fashionably challenged individual (if you've lived with me, or know me in any way, shape or form, you know I would live in sweats if I could), I loved the feature that helped you pick wedding color schemes. From cakes, to dresses, to shoes, to centerpieces, this helps you design your perfect day.
Does anyone know of a site like that to help me find a new wardrobe?
