San Diego Wedding Photographers | Temecula Wedding Photographers

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:

Wedding 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!

Niche Wedding Blogs
If you can’t find what you’re looking for in the blogs above, try these niche wedding blogs:

Hi-Fi Weddings – Music inspiration for your wedding
The Wedding Yentas – A Guide for the Jewish Bride
Latina Novia – InspiraciĆ³n for the Modern, Latina Bride

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!
