The magic of the internet means its now so easy to find 'weddinginspo' anywhere! I've written a quick guide for 5 of the best tools to find wedding inspiration. I've also chucked in some of my personal favourites to get you started.
I love Pinterest! I find it's the website you pop on to for 5 minutes, and 2 hours later you're still there, having pinned 1000 posts and somehow you've ended up deciding to undertake some way too adventurous DIY ideas you've found. But don't let this put you off.... Pinterest is such a great tool for anyone planning a wedding! To keep things organised and easy to find, create mood boards for each part of the wedding e.g; colour theme, table decor, hair etc... You can then invite your wedding party so they can add their own ideas/inspiration. It can even be useful for briefing suppliers - you could give your Bouquet board to your florist to let them know what you want.
Instagram is by far my favourite social media platform (follow me here and say hello). It's bursting with wedding inspiration and talented suppliers. There are a lot of tags to follow but some of the best are; #mywed #weddinginspo #weddinginspiration #hitched #bridetobe #weddingplanning #engaged2017 #weddingideas #theknot #shesaidyes .... And For anyone planning a London wedding ... #mylondonwedding #londonwedding
Ok so I'm not talking about stalking your friends' weddings here. Facebook has a wealth of information for brides to be; There are plenty of wedding inspiration pages to follow, and I've listed some of the most popular in the UK below. Make sure you also follow suppliers - quite often they will share Facebook exclusives or offers, so it's good value! I often share giveaways and discounts on my page
4. Wedding fairs
A good old fashioned wedding fair is still super useful for meeting suppliers and getting ideas from! Remember to take business cards of all the suppliers you like, and ask your favourite suppliers if they are offering a discount if you book there and then. There are so many fairs around the UK, I've given you some directories so you can find ones local to you;
Huge numbers of brides now choose their suppliers through either friend recommendations or through wedding blogs. Blogs are great because they feature a lot of 'real weddings' posts and brides share their own experiences, so you couldn't really be in better hands.
This lot should definitely keep you busy for now! I myself can get lost in them for hours, and I'm not even planning a wedding! :) Follow my social media accounts for more wedding inspiration (Instagram / Facebook ) or head to my Contact page to get in touch. Caroline x
