While the Northeast climbs out from its snowy overload, there's been some good advice flying around regarding wedding planning, check it out:

Google Docs and Style Me Pretty and Michelle Rago teamed up to create a suite of wedding planning documents for use on Google Docs. Where was this when I got married? Its an awesome tool, I highly recommend it!

Shape Magazine is launching a Shape Bridal website {and possibly a magazine as well}, since most brides decide they want to be healthy for their wedding, this will really make you work hard!

Stella Events wrote a brilliant post regarding the actual cost of having a tented wedding in your backyard. It's insightful and got some great points highlighted!

Every Last Detail has a great post on why you shouldn't hire the 'cheapest' wedding photographer - read it here.
