For some brides, the hunt for wedding inspiration takes place on a daily basis. There’s no shortage of unique ideas, perfect details, and amazing wedding photos out in the world. Nor is there a shortage of wedding blogs devoted to sifting through them all and bringing the best ones to light every day. Here are our favorites.
100 Layer Cake
Three designers curate the photos on this site, which features stunning wedding pictures, from a ceremony in Newfoundland to a honeymoon in Morocco. There are also step-by-step DIY projects to peruse if you’re feeling crafty.
This is where you can find brides with tattoos, grooms with blue hair, and couples who named their tables after World of Warcraft locations. For non-traditional brides, the site is especially useful for finding first-dance songs that haven’t been done to death or ceremony readings that don’t make you want to roll your eyes.
You might be interested in a certain type of wedding—a rustic wedding, for example, or a modern one. Once Wed filters its catalog of wedding photos by mood—or by color, if you’re looking for details that match your palette.
Style Me Pretty
Though there are plenty of real weddings to swoon over, Style Me Pretty excels at staging gorgeous photo shoots stuffed full of those perfect little details—and ideas you can steal. An extensive fashion “Look Book” is also helpful for browsing dresses.
Snippet and Ink
For those trying to figure out a mood, feeling, or color palette, scanning Snippet and Ink’s “inspiration boards” is invaluable. The site puts together collages of photos based around a color or a detail (say, a vintage bicycle) and creates a possible wedding from there.
Brides looking to share the ups and downs of wedding planning can find sympathetic ears at Weddingbee, where more than two dozen future brides chronicle their paths to the aisle. Chances are, if you’re trying to work out a seating arrangement or settle on a hairstyle, some of these bloggers are, too. There is also an active message board for bridal support.
