You know how boys tend to know every little thing about sports? Things like: what player just got traded, who’s playing who on Sunday, who won the last Super Bowl (okay, I know that one – RAVENS!), etc. But I’m always blown away at the knowledge Matt has of football. It’s crazy to me that he remembers who won the Super Bowl in 1999, what team drafted who and I’m willing to bet my life he could tell me names of 85% of the Redskins players (I think I know three – ha!). Why does he know SO much?! Because he LOVES it! He’s so incredibly passionate about football that he ENJOYS watching games, learning all the rules, knowing the players and all records of the games. When we first started planning 072013 I think Matt was a little taken back with just how much I knew about weddings! He joked with others that I’d have our wedding planned in a month… and I may or may not have done that (just kidding:) See like him, I have a passion. And you guessed it – weddings! Now, I can hold my own when I’m watching sports – I understand baseball, football and basketball pretty well if I do say so myself! But at the end of the day, I’d rather stalk my favorite wedding blogs then play Fantasy Football. Because I’ve grown to love the wedding industry and I’m fascinated with it, I have a few blogs I constantly go back to because I find them not only BEAUTIFUL but also USEFUL. I LEARN from them; I love reading their tips and tricks, looking through pages and pages of glorious “real wedding” images and getting to know the bloggers themselves. I feel like I have friends in the industry even though we’ve never met & probably never will! I wanted to share a few of my all-time favorite wedding blogs because although Pinterest is full of an overwhelming amount of good ideas, these blogs are too! Start bookmarking them ladies, you won’t regret it 🙂
Southern Weddings: Looking for bow-ties, good food & southern hospitality? This blog is full of beautiful images, southern traditions & everything lovely under the Mason/Dixon line. I’ve read V5 so many times y’all! I’m constantly coming up with new ideas from their Real Southern Weddings series & I adore meeting each Southern Bride of the Month (and looking at their Southern Bride Bloggers)!
Style Me Pretty: Classic beauty! I could sit and look at this blog for HOURS. They have so many stunning images and real weddings from all over the world; their Best of 2012 magazine is a favorite of mine – grab a cup of your favorite drink & check it out here! And don’t forget their Little Black Book blog. It’s a must-read too!
Grey Likes Weddings: I feel incredibly modern, feminine & fashionable when I read this blog… Like I’m a sitting-in-my-NYC-apartment-drinking-a-glass-of-wine-wearing-manolos kind of girl; I love it! I not only love the Real Weddings series but I also LOVE the Beauty & Fashion series! What every girl loves: weddings & fashion 🙂
Green Wedding Shoes: My favorite part of Green Wedding Shoes is the DIY idea section; I LOVE seeing fun, easy and cost efficient projects come to life! I’m proud to say our 072013 florist writes a monthly DIY post for them; check out her latest here! (She’s pretty fantastic!)
Em for Marvelous: She’s not completely dedicated to weddings, but I had to throw her in here! I have learned a TON of practical advice from her blog series about her own wedding and she writes posts about life AFTER the big day – setting a budget, buying a house, etc. It’s so useful! And on a side-note, her Etsy shop is adorable!
Do you have any lovely wedding blogs you enjoy reading? Please share! I’d love to check them out!
