At a loss with Silo Structuring - Wedding Website

1. Planning Tools
- Website Builder
- Vendor Manager
- Budgeter
- Table Planner
2. Wedding Shop

3. Vendor Finder
- Photographers near me
- Location Wedding Photographer
4. Blog/Ideas
- Wedding Dress Trends 2021

Finally, I could use the areas mentioned above - planning tools, blog, vendors, shop and out all the blog post styled pages/posts within the blog and just link to the page i wanted to rank for the big keyword.

would virtual silo to

I seem to have spent weeks going round in circles on this one.
