{be inspired} we heart blogs!

October 4, 2011

{be inspired} will be posted every Tuesday featuring vendors, trends, and DIY projects!  Our goal is to inspire the brides-to-be and friends/family who may know a bride-to-be!
Inspired from the Heart reserves the right to remove any content (comments) that are self promoting as this day is all about our brides. Thanks for understanding!
Happy Tuesday! Today we want to introduce to you one of our favorite trends, Blog sites!!

Blogs are becoming more and more popular in the Wedding Industry as well as the social media world.
Why look at blogs? How can blogs help me plan my wedding? What blogs should I look at? WHERE DO I START?!
Don’t let blogs intimidate you, and don’t feel clueless- they are simple to navigate just as any normal website. The purpose of wedding blogs is to show off and share what others have created. Whether it be an Inspiration Shoot created by a photographer and a team of a Coordinator/designer, Florist, Baker, Etc., an Engagement Shoot, Wedding submission, or Bridal Shoot.
There is a lot to look at and something for everyone!Blogs can help you plan your wedding in many ways. The most obvious is color, theme, and decor! CTD {color, theme, decor} describes and reflects your personality and style as a couple. You can get ideas for how you would like your wedding to look and figure out your “style”. Or  – If you love DIY’ing you will love all the great ideas & projects that other Brides have tried and actually used for their wedding and recreate them for your own.
Venue ideas are also described on the shoots! If you are looking at a local blog often times you will stumble across the perfect location for your big day, or find a Vendor you would love to have as a part of your wedding team. There is a lot to gain!
Looking at blog posts will help you get a visual and ideas about what you like, love or hate!
Make a folder on your desktop just for ‘Wedding Stuff’. Staying organized will be your best way of keeping yourself collected and not overwhelmed. We encourage our brides to fantasize- dream big, and save everything you like and love! After saving as many images as you can re-vsist them deleting the ones that you know are way to over the top, or just do not fit in.
Once you have a full folder prioritize by deciding what is important and within your budget.
Now comes the fun part- Make an Inspiration Board!!  How do I do that?!
Copy and paste your choosen images and make a collage {using word, or print them out and glue/tape the images to a poster board- depending how crafty you are} There is no rhyme or reason to the placement of the pictures, just a random cluster of ideas.

Shabby Chic Wedding Inspiration

What is your style? Are you Counrty, Beachy, Modern, Vintage, Shabby Chic, or anything DIY? If you do not know you – search these styles.
Think of blogs as being an online magazine – perfect because the first 12 pages aren’t advertisements!! Magazines are great, but get expensive! So why clutter up your coffee table and throw away money, because after all you are on a budget!
So surf the internet! Google will be your best friend if it isn’t already.So what blogs should you look at?
Personally we love:
Green Wedding Shoes
Ruffled Blog
Style me Pretty
Oh-Lovely-Day
The Wedding Chicks
Just to name a few!
What is your favorite blog? Leave a comment below.We hope you have an {inspired} day!
Love,
Danielle & Cecily
