Planning your dream wedding can be so much fun — you’re able to pick out every tiny detail that will make your special day “yours.” But, it can also be extremely overwhelming. There are a lot of decisions to make, and it seems like there is endless “inspiration” coming at you from all angles– family, friends, wedding magazines, TV shows, Pinterest… you name it. Everyone seems to have an opinion.

One of the most helpful things when I was planning my own wedding was curating inspiration from real weddings, and one of the best places to source that real wedding inspiration is from wedding blogs. The ladies (and gents!) behind these blogs live and breathe weddings. They come through hundreds of submissions to publish the best-of-the-best to help inspire you for your special day.

So, my little brides-to-be, here are my favorite wedding blogs. Happy reading – and planning!

1. Style Me Pretty

The Holy Grail of wedding blogs, Style Me Pretty has been delivering sophisticated inspiration since 2007. You’ll get lost in all of the gorgeous photography and endless style.

2. Southern Weddings

Oh, how I love Southern Weddings. Everything about this site is sweet, approachable, and downright Southern. You’ll love the Blue Ribbon Vendors and styled photo shoots almost as much as the adorable Southern belles running the show at SW. Be sure to check out the Virginia page, ya’ll!

3. Borrowed & Blue


Borrowed & Blue is a great resource for hyper-local content. You can select your location, browse venues, and read local tips on the blog. (Pssst…. our wedding was featured on B&B Richmond! Click here to read the post.)

4. Grey Likes Weddings

5. Ruffled


Ruffled is a great resource for the stylish and creative DIY bride. It’s all in the details.

6. 100 Layer Cake
