When I planned my wedding six years ago there were only a few resources available to me to help in the planning process. My friends, the magazines and television. But today with the popularity of blogs, twitter and Facebook it seems like the resources are ENDLESS. Here are some of my favorite go-to blogs that I feel offer the most help to future and current brides with their wedding planning. Whether you need help getting inspiration for your details or just need some tips on how to handle the day, these blogs have it all!
Style Me Pretty is probably the mecca of all wedding blogs and no doubt you've either heard of them or are using them for guidance in your own wedding planning. They feature stunning detail oriented weddings from all over the country. They even have a Massachusetts weddings specific branch of their blog! I love the events that they feature and it's clear that these brides have given much thought into the planning and details of their day. If you're looking for inspiration, head to Style Me Pretty. You'll overload on all the eye candy!
I first stumbled onto Heart Love Weddings when Alex featured an image of mine from a portrait session last summer. Ever since she's steadily grown the blog to become a resource of wedding tips for brides as well as featuring some amazingly beautiful engagement sessions and real weddings. Her down to earth writing style and passion for love and weddings is what makes this blog a must read.
For the modern and stylish bride, definitely head over to Grey Likes Weddings where Summer curates a collection of weddings, products and advice for today's bride. I'm always drooling over the images and weddings she features. Summer has great taste and so she chooses very carefully the wedding she shares. If you are a detailed oriented bride (who loves fashion, style and design) make sure to bookmark Grey Likes Weddings. And then go there every day.
Wedding Chicks is a great resource of the crafty and DIY bride. They have a shop, free printables, tips and tricks and feature the most darling weddings. Ever. They are a great resource for inspiration and have lots of ideas for things that are outside of the box. They recently featured a post on yarn centerpieces and I drooled, a little.
Do you have a favorite wedding blog that you use for your planning? What has helped most in the planning of your day? I'd love to hear!
