Hope your enjoyed Part 1 in my series, ‘How to plan your wedding in 2018‘. I had such lovely feedback from my readers and new visitors as well. With this in mind, it’s now time for me to share my Top Ten Wedding Planning Websites 2018 with you.
There is so much information available online that it can be difficult to know where to start. Over the years, I’ve worked with many of the different blogs and am delighted to be able to share their work with you now. Here are my Top 10 to help you on your way …
One Fab Day
One Fab Day provides inspiration & ideas to couples planning their wedding. They showcase the very best of Irish talent and also highlight lesser-know little gems for a totally unique wedding. Celebrating style and creativity at weddings is their aim – what more could you want!
There is a ton of information available – from real life weddings to help you pull together your own theme, features on the best venues and suppliers, through to help with all the nitty-gritty of wedding planning.
The guys at Braw Brides offer some seriously good content featuring the best of Scottish talent. Whether it be quirky, romantic or utterly stylish, there will be something for you on their amazing site.
As with a lot of wedding blogs/websites, Heather found that after her wedding she didn’t want to leave the world of weddings behind. She decided to help other couples plan their wedding ‘their way’ and I have to say she does a cracking job. Would nearly make you want to travel to Scotland to get married!
Created by the celebrated wedding planner and blogger, Kelly Hood, Boho Weddings is tailored towards the ‘Boho’ individual couple. Covering all things vintage, rustic or modern, Kelly states that ‘as long as your wedding reflects your personality then Boho Weddings is the place for you.’
I’ve had the pleasure of being featured on this awesome website recently – Helena & Neill’s wedding at Lusty Beg fitted perfectly with the style and theme of the blog. You can check out their wedding feature here.
Whimsical Wonderland Weddings
Next up on my Top Ten Wedding Planning Websites 2018 is Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. If eclectic wedding inspiration is your thing, then you have to pop over and visit their site. This fab wedding blog offers unique and stylish content whilst showcasing the best of wedding photography around. Founded by Lou in April 2010, they also features real life couple stories behind the images and I was lucky enough to be featured a while back.
You can view Andy and Siobhan’s summer wedding here – still one of my all-time favourites. Laid back, simple yet creative and ultimately stunning.
Love My Dress
This beautifully curated blog have been bringing couples the best of British weddings since 2009. Their ethos can be encapsulated in a few words – authentic weddings, empowering women, inspiring passion in others.
Founded by Annabel Beeforth, Love My Dress is a leading influencer in the wedding industry and offers genuine content to visitors whilst honouring the true meaning of marriage. What’s not to love?
For all things alternative, look no further than Rock N Roll Bride. Kat William’s shamazing blog is totally unique and if you are planning a one-of-a-kind wedding then she is your gal.
Expect to see lots of rainbows, unicorns, tattoos and anything in your wildest imagination. Think colour, think individual, think style. If you want to break all the rules, there is some seriously great content awaiting you on her page. As Kat herself states, ‘It’s the Ultimate Guide for the Alternative Bride’.
Northern Ireland’s first wedding blog, The Promise, was created by Emma Smith to help couples keep up to speed with the latest wedding trends and bridal fashions. The site also offers helpful advice on planning your wedding and showcases the vast array of local talent available to couples.
Emma kindly shared one of my weddings on her blog – Gemma & David’s Winter Solstice Wedding, which also took place at Lusty Beg Island. You can check it out here.
This wedding blog is a joy to behold and definitely deserves a place in my Top Ten Wedding Planning Websites 2018 feature. Offering a highly curated, fine art style, it has been voted ‘Best Wedding Blog’ for a number of years. Founder Sara states that they are ‘inspired by the organic, tangible, artisan, natural and light …’
The team’s love of film photography and fine art shine through. They offer the industry something unique and that’s never a bad thing in my books.
Founder, Deborah DeFrancesco, provides a straight-forward, honest approach to your wedding planning, with the odd expletive thrown in for the craic. Sure who doesn’t in times of stress. ‘Bitchless Bride encourages and educates brides (and grooms) to plan their wedding thoughtfully, respectively and awesomely.’ How cool is that?
She strips back the myths around wedding planning and offers some of the hippest, unconventional advice around. The blog reminds us of what’s truly important about getting married and helps plan for your future together. Sometimes this gets lost in the midst of all the wedding hype and it’s refreshing to have someone keep it real.
Style Me Pretty have been inspiring couples planning their wedding since 2007. This is your go-to destination for all things stylish and pretty. Showcasing vendors from all around the world, real-life weddings and all the hottest trends they really are your ‘Wedding Planning BFF’.
Founded by Abby Larson, Style Me Pretty has become one of the most successful wedding blogs on the market. ‘The site offers lifestyle content for many of the milestones in a woman’s life, from planning a wedding to navigating the work/life balance after kids.’ Pretty awesome I’d say.
