Whether you’re an expert planner and thrive on putting together a rockin’ wedding party yourself or you need all the help you can get, we know that 2021 brought wedding planning woes that none of us ever imagined.

With COVID-19 canceling, postponing, paring down & rescheduling nearly everyone's wedding plans this year, we were proud to help our readers & followers with planning, replanning (& often, replanning again) your beautiful celebrations.

So, our wedding planning coverage in 2021 included A LOT of outside help from our favorite expert planners & wedding professionals, our in-house experts & our own brides on staff who had their own wedding plans retooled. You can find all of our Coronavirus-related wedding help here.

But not all of our wedding advice pertains to brides & grooms affected by Coronavirus. This year, we doubled down on our Real Talk series, helping you tackle tough topics with your friends & family and calling on the wedding industry & peanut gallery to stop telling brides & grooms they'll regret things about their wedding.

We were also spoiled with plenty of wedding planning tips from expert contributors like how to keep the romance during the stressful wedding planning process & which beautiful blooms give your the most bang for your buck.

For those embarking on their own wedding planning journey, I encourage you to read through any of the sage advice below (after all, we think live streaming your wedding for guests who can't join is a great idea – Covid-19 or not!)

So in no particular order, these are the best wedding planning posts of 2021 on Bridal Musings…
