My favourite wedding blogs and Instagram accounts that have pretty much been saved in my favourites for the past 17 months! And with the one month countdown in full swing I wanted to share them with future brides as they have been a godsend to my planning journey!
Smashing the Glass
Of course the fountain of all knowledge and the must-go to place for Jewish and Jew-ish weddings! Full of suppliers and wonderful real weddings it really is a fantastic resource! I used it extensively in researching chuppah ideas and general Jewish themes for our wedding. I also love the Smashing The Glass YouTube channel which gave me lots of inspiration for what I want from our videographer!
Love My Dress
Both a wonderful blog and Instagram account, full of a range of style ideas and real weddings. They also have a wonderful list of suppliers called Little Book For Brides which gave me some ideas and pointed me in the right direction for a few things! In terms of Instagram they show real brides and snippets of featured weddings which I have spent many a lunch break screen shot-ing and saving for planning meetings with my mum and sister!
Green Wedding Shoes
Although American I love how quirky and cool this account is! Full of rustic vibes and beautiful colours I want all of them in my wedding! It covers a range of areas from lifestyle to holidays as well as weddings so you get a good range of ideas and inspiration when dreaming about life post wedding!
Oh wow! This woman posts the most insane hair styles that have bridal hair written all over them! She posts videos as well which was great when thinking about whether a particular style would work for my hair length! I spent many an evening swooning over the styles and stealing some ideas for my own hair!
The Instagram account for the magazine. I found it quite good for real bride features and looking at the couple photos they post as ideas to share with my photographer. Although it wasn’t always my style of wedding it is a UK account so you can actually locate the items they post about with ease!
Rock My Wedding & Whimsical Wonderland Weddings
Two of my go to blogs and Instagram accounts mainly because a lot of their weddings fit with our theme! I find their real wedding posts and their inspiration posts really useful in gathering ideas and looks I am after. As we are getting married in a barn and they both feature a lot of barn weddings it has been really useful in terms of getting ideas for how to decorate ours!
Silverspoon London & Beautiful Destinations
Both great for those honeymoon dreams! They post the best hotels in the world which is great for some inspiration when planning the holiday to end all holidays – the honeymoon! Or just if you want to dream of being on a desert island without the stresses of planning your own wedding!
Oh and obviously I follow all of my suppliers on Instagram as they always post updates and new pictures which just gets me so excited for our wedding!
So with one month to go these are the secret people who have all helped me to plan my wedding and hopefully it will all fall into place perfectly in one months time!
