Wedding blogs – an introduction at Christmas time!

Hello there! I hope you’re having the loveliest of weeks. If you are one of those lucky people who got engaged on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, huge congratulations to you! It’s always lovely to see new brides and grooms visiting the blog in January – so do stick around and explore a little, won’t you. For now I thought an introduction to wedding blogs would be a nice start to this morning.

What are wedding blogs? An introduction

Wedding blogs are simply the equivalent of wedding magazines, on the internet. They’re constantly updated with real weddings, ideas and inspiration, advice and expert help with wedding planning.

Wedding blogs are:

  • Free! There’s no cover price – save money on magazines and spend your time reading wedding blogs instead! Over a year, you’ll save plenty of pennies and they all count when you’re planning a wedding!
  • Online – and always at your fingertips. Read your favourite blogs on your computer at home or work, on your mobile while you commute, or on your iPad or tablet all snuggled up on your sofa. Most are optimised for mobile devices so you can spend as much time with us as you like!
  • Searchable… if you’re looking for something in particular, perhaps vintage wedding accessories or a top wedding photographer, you won’t need to spend hours flicking through the blogs. Use a search engine like to find the wedding information and ideas you need! Simples 🙂
  • By real people. Wedding bloggers don’t belong to big corporations; there’s no huge team of staff and we write our own features and articles. When you comment on English Wedding Blog, I read that comment (and it’s always really, really lovely to hear from readers!) Wedding blogs are honest, genuine and down to earth. So whichever blog you love best, you’ll get to know the blogger behind it. This is why I love wedding blogs (and read them) far more than the wedding magazines.

I hope you’ll enjoy them too!

Claire spends her days writing - either in beautiful calligraphy or online. She lives on the edge of the English Lake District only minutes away from the beach, where she loves to escape and unwind. Claire's calligraphy can be found at Claire launched the English Wedding Blog in November 2009 - it's been a top 10 UK wedding blog ever since, with a regional focus we hope you LOVE.
