Fav Picks | Wedding Resources

Many times choosing a theme for your wedding isn't hard because of a lack of ideas but because of an abundance of them. You only get married once, and you want it to be a reflection of you and your fiance. If you've never done something like this before, planning a wedding can be overwhelming!

So not to throw gasoline on the fire but hopefully direct you to some helpful resources, here are a few wedding design blogs that I love! Browse, write down ideas, be inspired! Remember, these aren't to pressure you to follow a trend or feel the need to keep up with the Joneses. I share them to inspire you to think outside the box, see what resonates deep inside, and create a day that truly reflects who you are!

"A wedding blog for vintage, indie and DIY brides"

Featuring some of my favorite kind of brides, Ruffled blog is also a great resource for unique details as brides are able to resell leftovers from their wedding!

Every Last Detail
"insight for brides encompassing every last detail of planning a wedding"

Ever wonder really what are "details"? Every Last Detail has a great post detailing it out! ;-)

… are what make a wedding unique. They set your wedding apart from your best friend’s wedding- that is at the same exact venue because you both loved it so much.
… allow you and your fiance to tell your story and infuse your relationship and personalities into your wedding- the wedding that is the celebration of your love.
… are what decorate and accent a wedding. Flowers, candles, chargers, linens, etc- the pretty things. :)
… are a theme and a style of a wedding. Vintage, peacock, modern, beach- I don’t care what the theme or style is, but details always help to define it.
… are things that enable your to remember your wedding day. Guest books, fun prints to sign, a card catalog of guests, etc.
… keep guests informed. Yep, informed. Invitations, menus, table numbers, signs… because let’s face it, there is A LOT of information you have to share with guests for a wedding!
… are ways for guests (and you, duh) to have fun, enjoy themselves, and celebrate your marriage. Specialty drinks, games, photo booths, candy- they’re all details!
