So, you’re engaged! Congratulations!! Being engaged is such an exciting time! You are going to get a lot of attention and spoiling by friends, family, and wedding professionals! Matt & I are coming up on our 3 year anniversary exactly one month from today, and I miss the days of planning our wedding! I still never get tired of chatting about weddings!

Fortunately, there are a ton of resources for you to get your fill of delicious wedding details! If you’re not sure where to start, here’s a list of some of our favorite wedding magazines and blogs:

If the idea of following a ton of different blogs is overwhelming, consider putting all of your favorite blogs into a blog reader. Blogger allows you to do this (in addition to being a place for you to create your own blog). I use Feedblitz, a free site that allows you to manage your subscriptions and sends you an email with all of the latest blog posts that you’ve subscribed to. I get mine in a daily format, so every morning I drink my coffee and read blog updates in a single email! Don’t forget to add our blog to your Feedblitz! : )

Here’s a BRIEF list of other blogs that we love:

Truly Engaging – The wedding blog of MagnetStreet Weddings (great online store for designing your own wedding stationery).
The Wedding Palette – Need help tying your wedding colors and details together? There’s a blog for that!
Heart Love Weddings – If the real weddings aren’t reason enough to subscribe, Alexandra posts a weekly Tuesday Shoesday with designs to drool over!
Style Me Pretty – Looking for a reason to swoon? Style Me Pretty is full of details, details, details! If you’re a stylish bride who loves rustic, organic wedding creations, then this is a must follow!
Wedding Chicks – Another inspiring site full of details, but the best thing about Wedding Chicks is the DIY section!

Wedding Magazines

I probably go to about 5 different stores in Jacksonville to find the latest wedding magazines, and whenever I travel I try to pick up regional magazines to see what’s inspiring brides all around the country. I have a list of about 50 wedding magazines that I read (some more loyally than others). It’s an expensive hobby, but I go back and read through them all the time! Many wedding magazines also have blogs, so make sure to check those out also!
