Interesting site with a countdown calendar, budgeter and wedding dress finder. A word of warning about the budgeter...when I entered my budget and number of guests it spent a lot of time telling me what I didn't have enough money for at my wedding :-)
Lots of ideas and a free newsletter you can subscribe to
This is the website of Alan & Denise Fields, the authors of "Bridal Bargains" (a book I highly recommend). It has a great mailbag section with letters from real brides telling how they saved money and warning about bad vendors.
And still more!
Chef Mike was a caterer for years and has written a book about preparing the food for your wedding. I haven't read the book myself so I can't really recommend it but there are testimonials at his website and also a few "samples" from the book. You might want to check it out if you're thinking of doing your own food.
