Happy weekend everyone! What are you up to this weekend – weddingy bits and bobs, or a bit of time off? I’m taking my little Mini out for a road trip into the Lake District and hoping for a nice day. Fingers crossed! But first – I thought I’d share some of my favourite wedding blogs from the last week and a bit. Enjoy! Claire xxx

Hi there everyone, and happy weekend! Are you up to anything nice? I’m just going to be writing a couple of wedding blogs and I’ll spend the rest of my time catching up on watching Lost – yes I know I’m a few years behind but I’ve just got hooked and it’s a nice escape from work… although I can’t help keeping one eye on the laptop all the time!

Anyway – it’s been a busy week and I’d love your help with something. I’m looking out for new and fabulous wedding accessories and invitation designers to share on the blog. Early in the year there are always new wedding suppliers making an appearance as well as more established small businesses doing a big promotional push – which is fab! I would dearly love to have time to discover them all for myself but I suspect many escape my radar. So – if you have seen something amazing you’d like to tell other brides and grooms about, please get in touch and tell me so I can share on the English Wedding Blog! Thank you 🙂

Hello there! It’s time to share my favourite wedding blogs from recent weeks once again on English Wedding Blog. Sit back and enjoy the best real weddings, creative ideas and advice articles for brides and grooms – and share your own finds and favourites in the comments if you’ve spotted something I’ve missed!

Happy Friday everyone! xxx

Hello again! Regular readers: an apology. I’m not good with time. I’ve realised that I always introduce these “best wedding blogs” features with a little disclaimer that I’ve no idea how long it’s been since the last one. Scheduling some of my blog posts a week or more in advance leaves me a little fluffed-up in the brain department, you see.

I do see a lot of lovely fluff in my line of work… perhaps it’s the tulle and paper poms which have sent my brain all wonky. Anyways – this is the last time I’ll apologise. Once again though, I’ll redeem myself by sharing the very best of wedding blogs from the last week-ish. Enjoy!

Hurray for three-day weeks, hey?! Even for those of us who avoid the daily commute and office politics, there’s something lovely about putting three days in before suddenly realising it’s Saturday morning. Whatever your plans for today, I hope you have a good one and make the most of your freedom this weekend!

Of course weekends are pretty damn good for doing a little wedding research or reading up on pretty ideas too. With that in mind, here’s one of my regular ‘best wedding blogs’ articles with some links to loveliness, real weddings, ideas and advice.

Enjoy! (especially if you’re still in bed reading this!) Claire xx

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!

Whether you’re shopping or seeing family or friends, have a great weekend. To keep you entertained in the meantime, here are my best wedding blog posts from the last couple of weeks – with thanks to WedWeekly for a couple of ideas here too!

As I type it’s Tuesday night and I’ve been working since 5am with a short break! But I’m listening to the very amazing Dan Donnelly live on the radio (and chatting to him on facebook about dancing to Moondance! get me! LOVE this guy!…) so I can’t leave my laptop until he’s gone…

Oops… while I was planning for my wedding fair last week I didn’t have time to write up my ‘best wedding blogs’ post for the week. And my bookmarks folder is ready to pop! I even have some lined up to share with you for next time already… but for now, here are my favourite wedding blogs for this week. Enjoy!

The best real wedding blogs

  • Love this winter wonderland wedding on London Bride blog! Clemency and Tom – with tons of great details and a really atmospheric venue
  • I used baby’s breath (gypsophila) to decorate my stand at the wedding fair… and I fell in love with it. Lauren & Grant’s wedding uses it so beautifully!
  • Cupcakes, romance and a gorgeous strappy wedding dress: Leanne & Oliver’s Leeds wedding
  • Steph and Jonny’s wedding is fab – the calligraphy a highlight for me 🙂 “She who wears the crown” on Brides Up North
