Why the 2014 Engaged Bride to Be will love the Dress for the Wedding blog: Unsure what to wear to your formal engagement party? Planning a nautical wedding but not sure what bridesmaids dresses will work best with the theme? Or are you a guest for six very different style weddings this summer (a true millennial’s dilemma)? Then you’re in the right hands with the style advice from DressForTheWedding.com’s Editor, Sukey!

2. Burnett’s Boards

Why the 2014 Engaged Bride to Be will love the Burnett’s Boards wedding blog: Some of my absolute favorite inspiration boards are Editor Sara’s compilations. She has classic taste with a twist and sources inspiration with a wide variety of styles and themes. You’ll also find guest blogs, real weddings, and advice here.

3. Every Last Detail

Why the 2014 Engaged Bride to Be will love the Every Last Detail wedding blog: Editor Lauren is FULL of incredible wedding planning advice and resources in addition to her features of real weddings. Plus, Every Last Detail’s great Vendor Listings continue to grow monthly (seriously, check out the ELD vendors and their blogs as well!). I am also loving the new website design she just unveiled this week, so definitely go have a look!

4. The Perfect Palette

Why the 2014 Engaged Bride to Be will love The Perfect Palette wedding blog: COLORS, COLORS, COLORS! They are so critical when designing your wedding. The colors you choose for your big day will dictate your wedding dress shade (diamond white, ivory, blush?!), the groomsmen attire, your centerpieces, the floral design, your invitations, and even your menu! Luckily, Chrissy, the Editor at The Perfect Palette has you covered! You can search and browse wedding color palette by shades and hues to find the match that is as bold or as subtle as you desire!

5. A Practical Wedding

Why the 2014 Engaged Bride to Be will love A Practical Wedding blog: We all love swooning incredible and seemingly perfect weddings but Editor, Meg, gives her readers the real REAL weddings and the stories behind them. Her focus is on helping brides have an amazing wedding without feeling like they have to be pressured into a cookie cutter event or one that is WAAAAAY out of their means. But that’s not all she tackles! She also has features and guest blogs about real married life, divorce, babies (the good and even the bad like infertility). A Practical Wedding is a definite bookmark wedding blog to help you keep some perspective in your wedding planning, especially on those days you find yourself pinning idealistic wedding inspiration for six hours straight on Pinterest {don’t lie to me, I know you’ve totally done that! :) }

6. Southern Weddings

Why the 2014 Engaged Bride to Be will love Southern Weddings blog: Frankly, I’ve been obsessed with Southern Weddings Magazine since it’s inception in 2008, and I don’t think it matters if you’re a Bride from Raleigh, NC, Seattle, WA, or Seoul, South Korea! Editor, Lara, is a true Southern Belle, and the team at Southern Weddings Magazine consistently exudes southern hospitality throughout their posts and pages with amazing real wedding features, styled shoots, and “butter my biscuit” spun advice! 

7. Hey Gorgeous Events
