It’s really quite amazing what technology can do. Ideas flow easily – as easy as a few clicks of a mouse – and just as easily trends are created as people begin stumbling across these ideas and sharing them with other people.
Wedding trends are changing everyday and I think it’s fueled by all the great ideas that pop up on a daily basis all over the web. East coast brides are injecting artsy, casual elegance depicted in weddings from the West Coast. European flower designs are redefining what floral designers are doing in the U.S. It’s really interesting and amazing how many great ideas are out there.
My obsession since Mike and I became engaged is with wedding blogs. Most of these blogs post real weddings on a daily basis that just make you swoon over how unique and gorgeous they all are. Color schemes, venues, dresses, place settings, flowers, ceremonies…all gorgeous and unique in thier own way.
Here are some of my favorite blogs that I stalk religiously several times a day:
Style Me Pretty – Ranks #1 on my obsession list
Gorgeous, amazing, fabulous weddings (especially from the West Coast). Multiple posts a day. Abby does a great job of listing out as many details as possible on each wedding she posts and provides you with vendor names. Occasionally has contests with great wedding-related giveaways – Calligrapher, Invitations, etc.
Salt Harbor Designs – Perfectly Southern event planning company
Absolutely adorable real weddings and ideas with a Southern twist.
Platinum Weddings by Kerrie – Wedding planner for clients with BIG budgets
Perfect place for inspiration, if you can figure out how to recreate within your budget.
And of course occasionally I check out the blogs of local photographers to check out what people are doing in South Florida: Simply Captivating, Focused on Forever, and Maloman. (Disclaimer: love my photographer more, but they don’t have a blog yet).
