Show Us Your... Wedding Advice

I'm taking a break today from posting about our trip to Walt Disney World, although I will be continuing next year (aka next week!) to participate in Kelly's Korner's Show us Your Life.

The theme for today is wedding planning, which is convenient for me since I'm currently trying to plan our wedding for next September. If you go through my past post you'll probably notice that quite a bit of my inspiration comes from weddingbee. No surprise really, since I'm a bit obsessed with the site. So I thought for my post it would be fun to share some of my favorite weddingbee weddings.

My favorite types of weddings fall into two main categories. The first are weddings so opposite of what I have planned, that they're just fun to gush over. I don't see my wedding looking anything like these ones, which is most of the reason why they're so fun to gush over.

First is Mrs. Cherry Pie with her middle of nowhere Montana wedding. Isn't the view from the ceremony just absolutely amazing? Here wedding just reminds me of going camping growing up, and I think there would just be something almost magical about a wedding in the mountains.

Mrs. Sea Breeze and her destination wedding in Punta Cana, DR again looks breathtaking. Just how much fun would it be to spend the week of your wedding vacationing at some exotic location and lounging on the beach with your closest friends. Although I guess if I can't get married on a tropical island I'll just have to make it there some other way!

Then there's the exact opposite end of the spectrum with Mrs. Mary Jane's courthouse wedding. Again it's not something I see for myself, but I think reading about her wedding captured my attention so much because it was so seemingly unique.

It would only make sense that if some of my favorite weddings are the exact opposite of what I'm trying to achieve, the other half represent just what I'm going for. So hopefully I can meet those goals and have a wedding similar to one of the following!

Mrs. Ballet Flat is one of the few Louisiana weddingbee bloggers. I'm not completely sure how were going to be blending my California expectations of a wedding, with it actually in Louisiana, but I know we'll make it work. And I'd love to be able to incorporate some of the Louisiana traditions used by her.

Mrs. Hot Cocoa always called her wedding "chewish," as in Chinese-Jewish, which I think you can see perfectly in this shot of the ceremony with both the chuppah and Chinese lanterns. I love how well she was able to blend both her and his backgrounds and I'm hoping we can do something similar with my Jewish heritage and the boy's Catholicism. And you can't look at that photo withing thinking it's absolutely stunning.

There's no real gimmick to immediately describe Mrs. Cupcake's wedding, but I love it just the same. I love her color scheme, I love her paper goods, but I think most of all I just love the feel of her day. Her wedding seems to have just the amount of formality I'm going for, and more than that, it just seems like they and all their guests had SO MUCH FUN that day which I'm hoping will be the feeling at our upcoming wedding.

Are you favorite weddings to read about online the most or least similar to the your own? And if you're here from Kelly's Korner, thanks for stopping by!


  1. I've recently become obsessed with weddingbee! I don't really keep up with the bloggers but I LOVE reading through the forums and have started commenting in them more!

  2. I'm like you, I think - I love the really different ones, with lots of insanely bright colors, circus themes, etc. But I also love a nice vintagey pastel wedding like my own.

  3. I'm loving all of the weddings. I haven't got on that site but I am addicted to wedding stuff on pinterest!
