The wedding planning process can absolutely be overwhelming but when you have useful resources right at your fingertips, the long search for perfect wedding attributes can be reduced (as well as your stress level). Bloggers spend their days searching for latest trends and awesome advice from magazines and websites to make your life a little bit easier.
Here are some of the best things you can get out of reading wedding blogs – like ours!
Vendors – From the caterer to DJ, you will spend most of your planning searching for vendors. By browsing the internet for blog posts and reviews, you will be able to narrow down your list of possible candidates. The internet is your one stop shop for who you can rely on, who is available and who had a great or not-so-great experience with the potential vendor. After all, who else can you trust if not fellow newlyweds?
Advice from Real Couples – Blogs are a great outlet to seek advice from real couples who went through the entire planning process already. Southern Weddings is a great source for reading up on the couple’s story; why they chose the venue they chose, their relationship background and of course, the beautiful wedding photos! These blogs are also a helpful way to see their recommendations on what/what not to do.
Inspiration – The jewel in the crown for wedding blogs: inspiration. You might have already decided that you will have an intimate ceremony in a beach setting but you might not know how to tie in all of your “non-negotiables.” Websites such as Bayside Bride illustrate original photographs from past weddings to serve as inspiration along with DIY tutorials.
The more content you can find, the better. You should read as many blogs pertaining to the ceremony, reception and everything in between as you can. The inspiration that you can find just by picking up your iPhone is outstanding and will help fill your day with love, creativity and cost-effective tricks!
