When it comes to wedding planning, everyone has an opinion.

This can be a good news/bad news scenario, depending on who is handing out the advice. (Your trusted best friend? Good. His eccentric aunt? Not so much.)

The good news is there are plenty of places to get great ideas and good advice, thanks to creative types who inspire and ease us into the fun of putting together our wedding day.

With hundreds of blogs for brides to befriend, we’ve cut through the content to share five of our favorites you just may want to follow.

Wedding Chicks

Besides their beautiful showcase of real weddings,  hair and makeup tips, floral suggestions and more, the Wedding Chicks blog is full of practical tips – yet doesn’t forget the fun, which is exactly how we hope our wedding planning experience will be: practical, and fun!

Green Wedding Shoes

With their hip sense of style and a love of breaking (in all the right ways) the sometimes-rigid rules of wedding planning, Green Wedding Shoes follows real weddings, focuses on DIY details and also highlights ways couples can keep things personal even when tradition is to be respected.

A Practical Wedding

‘Practical’ might typically be a bad word around the grandeur that goes into wedding planning for some brides, but we love the honest writing, thoughtful ideas and especially their advice column ‘Ask Team Practical” for all those pressing questions you need answers to (for example: Which of My Vendors Should I Tip?)

The Cinderella Project

Rest assured that while this blog is all about the happily ever after, it is intended for the modern bride (not a fairy-tale version.)  Full of beautiful images of gorgeous dresses, shoes, hairstyles and more, The Cinderella Project oozes romance and all the pretty elements of wedding fashion.

Sweet Emilia Jane

We haven’t met her, but we’re pretty sure Emilia Jane is as sweet as she promises if her wedding blog full of lovely and endearing images is any indication. Showcasing crafty concepts and ideas from weddings she planned herself or ideas that have inspired her, everything in her blog is in great taste.
