Wow – I can’t quite believe it’s Friday already! And time to share some of the best wedding blogs of the week just gone. I’ve found you a destination wedding with bubbles, a glamorous Lancashire wedding blog, and a DIY wedding with a vintage flavour. There’s quirky Las Vegas stationery inspiration, alternative wedding dresses and a shock revelation about one of our favourite wedding readings… it’s an exciting week for wedding blogs!

The best real wedding blogs…

  • Carol and Ross’s countryside wedding with pink lemonade and lace – and some details I’ll be using for inspiration for my wedding calligraphy stand in a couple of weeks!
  • Into the blue – a gorgeous destination wedding with fabulous accessories by Olivier Laudus on their latest wedding blog
  • An elegant, glamorous and very moving wedding at Lancashire’s Stanley House: just look at Joanne in her wedding dress… divine!

This week’s Wedding Planning or Work is dedicated to my new friend Scarlet Blue. Last Friday I skived off WPOW entirely, as I was up to my neck in calligraphy… only to find an email on Saturday from Scarlet (which she’d sent on Friday) saying how much she enjoyed my weekly blog roundups… Oops!

Today I’m not skiving off – I’ve made you a bumper edition of Wedding Planning or Work to enjoy. Happy Friday everyone!

I love the concept behind Pinterest. It’s a bit new, but anything bright and shiny and ambitious makes me smile.

For brides and grooms planning a wedding, it’s a fantastic idea. Browse the web, spot an image you love, bang a pin in it. It’ll appear on your pin board at Pinterest. Such an easy way to save all the ideas you find and love, and to share them with your friends and on wedding forums and stuff.

Thanks to Farrell & Chase for their blog post where I found Pinterest.

Sharing wedding planning images

Once again, the beauty of being a wedding blogger and running my own wedding business makes me think a bit harder about this. I’m aware of design copyright issues with images of things like wedding stationery and jewellery. I’ve seen the bunfights on forums many times!

Our Star Brides are here!

Thank you all so very much for your votes this week. The English Wedding blog has been buzzing! I can barely touch the keyboard without feeling a little sizzle in my fingers 🙂

Two worthy winners and lovely ladies I can’t wait to have as regular wedding bloggers here on English Wedding! I shouldn’t keep you waiting any longer, should I?! Here you go…

Sally and Salma – Congratulations!!! With 27% and 24% of the votes – well over 700 votes between you – your weddings have caught the imaginations of our readers.

I’m looking forward to hearing all about Sally’s country garden wedding and I can’t wait to find out more about her little retro quirky details… and seeing some photos and ideas which I know will inspire plenty of us!

And Salma’s focus on marriage, her rebellion against how the (old-fashioned side of the…) wedding industry makes us think – it’s what English Wedding is all about. Plus the musical aspects of Salma’s wedding… briliant!
