Friday Favorites: Wedding Blogs you should be reading

It’s planning season, Y’all!  Let’s get to some reading, yes? And Instagram stalking….

Almost overwhelming in content, Style Me Pretty has a loyal following both on the blog, in the Vault, and on Social Media – here’s the IG.

New-To-Me: Green Wedding Shoes, introduced my way by the lovely Kourtney via Instagram.  Lots of Real Wedding archives and beautiful Instagram pics. More of a boho-hipster feel, which I love right now, so bonus. I love the real wedding map – look up weddings by geographical location! Genius!

F Yeah Gay Weddings has a rebellious punk rock feel to it – with journalistic photo shoots and a great “Industry Insights” section – with questions that answer some of the more difficult and sensitive subjects for planners, wedding vendors and couples.  By facing these tricky questions head on, it makes those of us with more experience with straight weddings, feel less intimidated by LGBT weddings. (raises hand in the back) Instagram link here!

Indian Wedding Site – a larger format blog, based on Indian Weddings (loads in California, holla!).  Don’t be underwhelmed by the blog header – the rest of the site is fresh, authentic and a colorful-visual feast. Oops – I just fell in love with their Instagram – check out these asparagus wrapped flowers.

100 Layer Cake: Very similar to SMP, in both style and layout (are they related??), but with a more DIY approach and a lower budget in mind. The 100 Layer Cake Instagram account is to blame for my 2015 obsession with naked cakes.

This Indian Wedding Planning Duo – based in India, with a “part-time” blog. I am trying to learn the Indian Wedding scene and have been stalking this blog. Marry Me Weddings is a smaller blog with big ideas.

Female blogger Raj Dharar (she wants you to know she’s female, since most people assume she’s male) has a gorgeous and thoughtful blog called “Secret Wedding Blog” – full of interfaith and multicultural weddings.  Her Instagram is picking up – watch out for this blog to explode this year.

For Real Equality Weddings is well written by Emily – and full of engagement pictures and wedding pictures of Gay, Lesbian and Otherwise couples.  Really nice ideas, if you are struggling to find same sex wedding photography ideas and poses.  Or if you want a fresh approach to your straight marriage pics. Her IG following is just getting started – so follow her! How cute are these grandpa grooms??? Exactly the mushy type of thing I want in my feed =)

Happy Planning!
