Over the years, I’ve learned that first-time brides are overjoyed, excited, and anxious. They have the same questions and stress about the same issues, regardless of budget. I created On the Bride’s Side to help brides with all those stressful things a planner would typically assist with. Things like a comprehensive budget, amazing planning tools, tons of tips and insider money-saving tricks, and live question & answer sessions.
I am so excited to share On The Bride’s Side with you and hope it helps you create the wedding of your dreams.
We offer a wide variety of wedding planning support to brides. Everything from free planning tools to complete event planning. Choose the service that's right for you and your budget.Learn More›

TESTIMONIALS ABOUT ON THE BRIDE’S SIDE
I signed up for your free trial and I want you to know how amazing it is. You incorporated everything a bride would need and you put it all into one place. Your bridal toolbox is a dream come true. I have not got married yet and I am newly engaged but I am so glad I found you when I did! Thank you so much!

I just want to say how grateful I am to have a group that I can get and share ideas and show off my pictures. I feel very blessed to know there is somewhere I can go to talk with brides who have the same excitement but also the same struggles while preparing for their big day. I think I speak for everyone when I say a great big THANK YOU to Dina Clapinski for giving us the opportunity to be part of this group and sharing your tools and experiences with us. You truly are amazing!!!

I would have never guessed that I would have been involved with such an uplifting group. After waiting nearly 10 years to marry my prince this makes the journey so much more fun. Thank you Dina!
I love the budget spreadsheet and the guest list tracker. It is so much easier using the spreadsheets and tracker than writing down who is coming and who is not. It does it for you! It is also great to see how the numbers calculate for the budget and actually see where the money is going.
These spreadsheets are extremely helpful. Especially the budget sheet and the guest list. I like how I can save everything in one spot and it helps keep me organized.
These are all the tools you need! its like having a planner without the expense! i tried to "create" simliar documents with no success! Thanks Dina for making it so easy to be a DIY Bride!! xoxox
I think the website is wonderful. So many sites give me a sensory overload and so the fact that the site is somewhat relaxed and toned down was a treat!
As a first time bride at the entire website was helpful clearing up things you need to worry about and things that aren't so important was awesome.
Before we consider a friend, we are definitely going to take your advice on hiring friends!
