Wedding Blogs

When planning my wedding back last year, I discovered a few wedding blogs that provided wonderful ideas and inspiration.  My three favorite wedding blogs are:

something old something new

style me pretty


So, if you are in need of wedding inspiration, be sure to check them out!  Something old, something new has a great eye for accessories and bridesmaids gifts.  Style Me Pretty posts beautiful inspiration boards.    And Weddingbee is a community blog of brides going through the planning process, so you can follow them from ordering their wedding invitations to selecting their flowers!

Finally, I have had this bookmarked ever since I saw it and it is about time I posted it!  So here goes...

Back in January, Style Me Pretty featured a few posts on Parisian floral trends.  The guest blogger, Laura Dowling, had recently returned from Paris and reported back on some of the current trends.  In three gorgeous posts, Abby from Style Me Pretty, and Laura posted picture, after picture of amazing wedding flowers. 

In terms of bouquets, Laura summed up the trends, as follows:

"Overall, current bouquet trends run the entire spectrum from being highly structured bouquets with extraordinary detailing and flourishes – like the haute couture style – to being very natural and unstructured, as if the bouquet is coming from the field or garden and the flowers are springing up from the base.  The latter trend of an au natural style is the dominant trend in Paris, and is often juxtaposed against stark, modern backdrops, producing surprising and exciting effects."
