Use Real Weddings While Planning Your Wedding

real wedding inspiration

We are having so much fun receiving and sharing your weddings! Real weddings are the absolute best source for ideas and inspiration because they are doable and have a much wider variety. If you are a new bride beginning your planning, read through and check out real weddings before your search through a catalog. Features are great because they often come with advice from the bride and groom that can help you avoid the same complications. All in all, it is a great starting point for before you make any purchases and even set a date. It is like window shopping!

4 Things to Look For

  1. Location: Try and find weddings local to your area so that if you like their vendor or venue you may actually be able to use it.
  2. Vendors: Pay attention to links to who their photographer was and where they got their dress. It is always so much more useful to know exactly where you can get a cake like the one in the picture because you will know who made it!
  3. DIY: If the real wedding you are looking at was pretty crafty it will be easy to find wedding accessories and decorations that you can make yourself on your budget.
  4. Tips and Tricks: These couples have been through exactly what you are doing. It can’t hurt to head their advice!
