12 Things All Brides Have Googled

When you set out to plan a wedding, you probably have a lot of questions, and we totally get that. Nobody has ever taught you the difference between letterpress and engraved invites. And you probably haven’t spent hours researching different types of flowers until you got that ring on your finger. So now that you’re engaged and actually planning this huge affair, you might be a little clueless when it comes to certain aspects.

So you turn to Google. We all do it when we have pressing life questions (like can you get sick from eating a whole pack of Oreos, or should I get a puppy?). And now that you’re in the midst of wedding planning, you have a lot of questions. We did some research and found out what brides like you have been Googling. Take a look and don’t worry — you’re not the only one who doesn’t know what garters are for.

    Don’t make statements like “all brides” – I have Googled for any of these things either because they’re too broad (how much does a wedding cost) or too dumb (what happens at a bachelor party/how to wear wedding rings) or patronizing (how to get him to propose)

    I’ve Googled 3 of those things. I was curious how much an average wedding costs… Although, I am determined to keep it under $5k, and I am! I had no idea where to start when planning my wedding! (Thank you Google!) And Google helped me find some good songs for the ceremony! But, I didn’t search how to get him to propose. When we were both ready, we talked about it, and agreed we should get married. (He didn’t tell me what day or how he would do it though).

    I usually don’t respond to these articles, just read them and the comments. This is so ridiculous. If you have to google “how to get him to propose” ummmm not sure if you’re marrying the right guy. No judgment BUT it should be up to him or something you do together. I’m getting married next year and have never googled any of these things. So the term should be “Some” or “Most” not all brides. How about “wedding dresses”. I’ve googled that 1,000 times, accessories, hair styles, flowers and making the guest list and who to invite.
    Your wedding is unique to you. This article makes it seem like it’s written for a bobble head.

    Yeah no kidding! Also, if he hasn’t proposed yet, you’re not a bride-to-be, so why is that Google search even on here?? Dresses should’ve been on this list for sure, that and cakes.

    Or you know…none of these.
    This came across and really weirdly sexist and heteronormative on top of nonsensical–assuming that EVERY bride needed to fool a man into proposing (because every bride is a straight woman and every groom only goes down the aisle reluctantly) and that every bride frets about bachelor parties (because none of us trust our partners) and that every bride wants to change her name (because we’re all okay with a wedding being a transfer of ownership).
    Just rubbed me the wrong way.

    Right on, you are totally right. I have become more and more disillusioned with the articles the Knot has been posting lately. Some of their stuff is too ridiculous for words.

    agree with nycole, you should create your own desings.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
