8 Local Wedding Planning Resources

All things wedding-related... particularly helpful for Vancouver brides

1. the knot

Perhaps the most comprehensive wedding planning website on the planet, I spent hours reading and browsing through gorgeous pictures!

    • Get "the knot LookBook" App on your phone! The easiest way ever to filter and look for the wedding gown/ring/bridesmaid dresses of your dreams. 

2. Weddingful

    • Boasted as the #1 social wedding community in Canada, I like using it as a starting point when looking for different vendors. 
    • Sign up for alerts with your favourite vendors... Weddingful will email you when they have a deal/sale!

3. Savoury Chef's Venue Rental

    • Lower Mainland, BC
    • An almost daunting list of wedding venues to go through... but thank goodness they've compiled such an extraordinary list! I think I clicked every single link for fear I might miss the perfect venue...
    •  Check out their mouth-watering catering menus!

4. Ohnik Studio's Pinterest, Twitter, FacebookInstagram or Google+ page

5. Vancity Bride

    • A wonderful resource for the Vancouver bride.
    • Check regularly for their "Deals & Freebies"!
    • I love this list of Questions to Ask Your Venue: who knew there're so many things to consider?

6. Etsy

An online marketplace where indie artists and craftspeople sell and buy handmade or vintage items. Fantastic for those looking one-of-a-kind pieces. (or that special wedding gift!)

    • Psst... I got unique bridesmaids dresses as well as bridal accessories on Etsy at incredible prices!
    • Also check out Ohnik Studio's Etsy Store:

7. BuzzFeed Wedding Planning Diagrams

        • They're surprisingly helpful!

8. Ohnik Studio's Blogs

I'll be blogging about various budget-friendly (and super easy!) DIY wedding projects, many of which I used for my own wedding. Check out our most popular blog: "Help! How do I dye my white veil ivory?"
