The Knot magazine, in conjunction with the website, is helpful because it provides advice on how to plan a wedding and acts as a listing resource of vendors. The magazine offers tips for all types of brides on a variety of budgets.
The first wedding planning to-do is to create a timetable and select an acceptable date range for the wedding. Brides should allow enough time to plan all of the details and take into account any holidays or conflicting events. The exact date cannot be determined until a venue is selected, as the first choice may not be available.
Before looking at venues or buying a dress, brides should set a budget and what expenditures are the most important to them. After budgeting and prioritizing, brides can spend time envisioning their perfect wedding and looking through The Knot for ideas and inspiration.
After selecting a theme, The Knot can be used to find local venues that fit the individual bride's style. Once the venue is booked and the date is set, The Knot can then be used to find other wedding vendors, such as the photographer, DJ and caterer.
The editorials featured on The Knot show current wedding dresses, decorations and stationery trends, which are helpful when shopping for items, because brides are able to have an idea of what is available before they go shopping.
