You can make the most out of the online wedding planning services by hiring your wedding photographer and wedding videographer online too. Now while word of mouth and reviews are very important factors that affect the kind of vendors you would want services from at your wedding, getting a first-hand look of the services definitely works like magic. The photographers and videographers maintain their online websites or galleries with updated images and videos from the weddings that they cover and this definitely helps you to find the right one for yourself. You could read the real couple reviews and flip through the online galleries of the ace professionals on our website/app to find the best services for your big day online.
Now while Pinterest will help you figure out the trends or help you pick ideas from the image inspirations available online, locating the right vendor who can pull off the particular decor and theme that you have in mind for your wedding is not always a cakewalk. To be able to identify them you will need examples of the kind of work they have done in the past. Planning a wedding online helps you pick the decorators and wedding planners right for the big day. Their presence in one particular platform also allows you to compare and decide what works best for you.

Now you can't taste food online, but you can get a pretty good idea of what a wedding caterer offers from their website. If you feel like a tasting is necessary, you can schedule one online or via email! This is particularly easy at resorts and hotels, where you are more likely to be able to taste the food without booking a date, by going in for lunch or dinner. Venues may want to meet in person to know that you are serious about booking, or require you to book a date before you can do a tasting. Another easy solution is to reach out for a "special events menu" from restaurants you already know have amazing food, and put together a custom menu you know your guests will love.
Registering for gifts might be a very new ritual here, but wedding gifts are a very popular thing otherwise. Instead of carrying a huge box of beautiful China to the wedding or frantically chasing the best gift store in town, you can actually find your gifts online. You could also opt for doorstep delivery services for many of the vendors who can deliver the gift one has picked for the wedding to your doorstep at your desired time. WeddingWire India app and website can hook you up with the best options available in your town and do it all online.

While the brides who love cake will want to go down to the bakery for cake tasting, some other tasks like venue hunting and so on might not be all that fun.
