Today (a little sadly) I will be unsubscribing to the fabulous wedding blogs that I have followed since Christmas, not because I don’t want to follow them anymore but because I’m no longer a bride-to-be and well, I don’t think Andy would be too keen if I started planning another whole wedding again. One of Andy’s biggest reliefs after the wedding was that we didn’t have to plan one anymore.
Back in January, when we first got engaged I posted a list of the sites that I planned to subscribe to and the list grew and grew as we got closer to the big day.
- Ruffled blog – the weddings featured here are all visually stunning, every post that I visited was so aspirational and very modern.
- 100 Layer Cake has more highly creative weddings to peruse on Layer Cake. I found the posts great for classicly styled weddings with hints of DIY, bright pops of colour and beautiful florals.
- Green Wedding Shoes consistently had the most posts that I loved and often bookmarked. Lots of vintage influence and rustic charm. Heaps of outdoor ceremonies to drool over. I love the call outs that Green Wedding Shoes does on each post where the couple share extra details and tips for planning.
- Once Wed – I love once wed for their DIY and advice posts, their ideas were always the best – creative with lovely results and easy to achieve. I referred back to their Watermelon inspiration board all the way through our planning stages.
- Rock n Roll Bride feature such a variety of wedding styles, all really unique to the couple and I found so many of them to be inspirational to our wedding, even if that inspiration was just that we should do it our way. The Thursday Treats series became one of my favourite things to read because it summarises some of the best wedding-related posts from across the blogosphere from the past week.
- Adore by Chloe – I started to follow Chloe for her lovely and simple DIY projects, as well as the fact that Chloe is local to me so could recommend some fantastic suppliers.
- Utterly Engaged is an online magazine as opposed to a blog and it was nice to have a bit of relief to the typical blog posts. The only down side is that you can’t really pin or share the photos from the magazine pages but every issue has been stunning.
- Save the Date magazine is a print mag that is based on the East Midlands and features lots of great local suppliers and real weddings from the local area. Their Wedding Event with a Difference was the only wedding fair we went to and I still think it was the best choice for the area we live in. Through Save the Date’s blog we also found Peach Blossom who supplied many of our decorations and our videographers, Enter The Treehouse.
I wholly recommend all of these sites for any bride-to-be, they will inspire and delight you along every step of the way and don’t forget to take a look through their archives too because many give excellent advice on all areas of wedding planning.
