The practical site for the efficient gal, WeddingWire is for techies who love getting everything done online. Not surprisingly, a guy invented it. But it’s not too nerdy or anything. The site matches you with local merchants to save you loads of time in your hunt. The Twitter account is definitely more feminine; you can find the top 10 first dance songs, the prettiest dress of the day or the most intimate wedding venue. Tech can mingle with romance after all.

Every southern bride who’s worth her salt wants to plan a wedding that would make any southern belle proud. Even brides from other parts of the country can delight in immersing themselves in some southern weddings complete with southern speak–instead of checking out new vendors, you come on out and say “howdy” to ‘em. Or if you buy something from the Southern Weddings shop, you don’t have to hesitate to say “Yeehaw” for the world to see. Visit this Twitter account and you’ll be charming the “dew right off the honeysuckle.”

Love her or hate her, lifestyle guru Martha Stewart can make us mere mortals feel as if we fall short when it comes to anything domestic.

You can see the best hairdos, table décor and wedding themes around to inspire you or to, let’s face it, copy!

The Knot website provides information on everything bridal. Future missuses can get wedding ideas, learn how to plan for the big day, download wedding planning tools–like for a budget–(some brides might budget, who knows) and dress ideas. But if you go to the Twitter account, you can be as catty as you like as you peruse the ugliest bridesmaid dresses ever. (There’s a link to one that looks like what a stripper pretending to be a cancan dancer would wear). Or maybe you just want to make fun of boorish wedding guests, like the oh-so-funny groomsmen who say the ever popular “Don’t do it man.”
