Wedding Inspiration

With our wedding only 110 days away {ahhh!} I thought it’d be fun to share where I have received inspiration. Now a days there is inspiration everywhere and it can be extremely easy to get overwhelmed with all of it. Pinterest is a never ending page with millions of ideas, which pretty much all of them are fabulous leaving you wondering how you’ll ever get it all done {or pay for it all} am I right? 

What I have learned is that limiting your inspiration sources will help you keep your sanity and also your vision. When you overload yourself with inspiration {and never ending pins} you can start to loose the vision of what you and your better half wanted in the first place. You may even start to loose your personalities just because you think you need to have all of these things that you’re seeing. You don’t! Picking a few will not only look better but also keep you from using ideas that don’t really fit you or your wedding “theme” and also keep the budget on track {which is super important}. 

Below you’ll find my top places for inspiration, you’ll also notice some of the sites are the same as the magazines I have picked up – again keep it consistent so there isn’t a total overload of dresses, floral arrangements, hairstyles, etc…

My future mother-in-law gifted me this planner/organizer for Christmas and it has been absolutely amazing! Not only for keeping organized but also for inspiration. I have loved going through it on an almost daily basis. Seriously a fabulous gift for any brides to be in your life {or for yourself}. Just another item to help you keep your sanity during the crazy wedding planning process!
