Resources Revealed! Discover the Ultimate List of Wedding Forums, Communities & Online Groups

The internet is a vast and ever-expanding online resource center, and one of the best uses of social media is wedding planning. While has all of your wedding registry needs and gift guides covered, there’s so much more that goes into your big day. All across the web, you can read about how to make a bouquet, find qualified photographers and videographers near you, get customized quotes from local vendors, product designers and much more. The number of ways to use the internet to plan your wedding is increasing exponentially each day. 

To help with all of this stress…we mean, spendingexcitement, you need to know where to go online for valuable information beyond generic listicles touting the best bridal robes and photo booth props. If you want specific advice regarding the planning of your wedding (and if you are like most people who set out on the adventure of getting married—then yes, you do), then you need real people—newlyweds, fellow brides in your city, objective experts, etc.—that you can call on for advice. This is where wedding forums, communities and online groups come in. 

Wedding Forums & Communities

Most major players in the digital bridal space have some type of online forum, community or group chat that allows members to ask questions, post comments and duke it out whether or not it’s OK to have a cash bar at welcome events. 

Different forums often have different vibes, so be sure to check out a few. If you find a group of people that you like and who’ve helped you out, make sure to pay back the favor by responding to their questions when you have something to add. 

Some of’s favorites include the Betches Brides Group Chat, Weddingbee and the Disney Weddings and Honeymoons Forum. For’s full list of wedding forums and communities, scroll down to the end of this article. 

Wedding-Related Facebook Groups

While Facebook may no longer be the go-to daily destination for posting a status, people, especially brides and grooms, flock to the social network’s sense of community and connection, and wedding-related Facebook groups of all types thrive. Public. Private. Based on geography. And a never-ending sea of special-interests within those three groups means that absolutely everyone can find a Facebook Group that’s right for them. 

Remember that everyone in your group is generally going through a shared experience (and often for the first time), so be respectful and helpful with your posts. Fellow members will gladly respond to your questions as long as you stay on topic and ​​avoid posting irrelevant or off-topic content.

Some of’s favorites include πŸ’°πŸ’πŸ‘°πŸΌ Budget-Savvy Wedding Planning πŸ’•πŸ₯‚πŸ’, Everything Wedding, and Destination Wedding Directory. For’s full list of wedding-related public and private Facebook groups, scroll down to the end of this article. 

Wedding Subreddits

Last week, more than 8,000 subreddits joined forces to stage a blackout in protest of the Reddit’s decision to charge for third-party use of its API, marking one of the largest organized protests in the tech giant’s history. It was only meant to last a couple of days, but we’re still in uncharted waters; some wedding subreddits have come back online, some have gone private, some have been set to restricted, others are still boycotting the platform entirely. 

With topics ranging from the super broad to the minutely granular, it might be easy to compare wedding planning subreddits to its Facebook Group peers. However, Facebook Groups are generally more social-focused, while subreddits are more often geared specifically towards sharing information and ideas. Plus, the platform’s system of upvoting and downvoting allows the most relevant and helpful content to rise to the top, making it easier for users to find valuable and informative posts. 

Some of’s favorites include r/WeddingDress, r/wedding and r/Weddingsunder10k. For’s full list of wedding subreddits, scroll down to the end of this article. 

Wedding-Related LinkedIn Groups

While LinkedIn is often only seen as a professional networking platform, savvy brides and grooms can also use the social platform—specifically its industry-specific LinkedIn Group—as a resource for wedding planning. Connect directly with experts in groups centered around wedding photography, wedding coordination, wedding cakes, even wedding calligraphy. 

However, don’t expect these groups to function in the same way as some of the more community-centered resources previously mentioned. You should only join the groups of wedding professionals that you’re looking to solicit, but if you know exactly what you need (a wedding photographer that specializes in photojournalism, perhaps?), then LinkedIn Groups may offer the exact piece of advice you’ve been endlessly searching for elsewhere online.  

Some of’s favorites include This is Wedding Photography, Wedding & Bridal Industry Professionals and Wedding Calligraphy. For’s full list of wedding-related LinkedIn Groups, scroll down to the end of this article.
