Southern Weddings + Lover.ly

While it is still cold and gray, I'm thinking ahead of warm days, picnics, outdoor parties and day trippin' in our new car. These two photos from Southern Weddings just about sums up what I'm ready for - color, fun and warm weather! Whenever I need inspiration for Spring and Summer, which is right about now, I peek at wedding blogs and websites. They put me in such a great mood. Feminine, fresh, bright, romantic, great ideas...

Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings is a GREAT source of inspiration to me. Plus, I'm a southern girl from South Carolina originally so naturally, there's a heart connection too. I grew up a town over from Pawleys Island and went to many weddings at Litchfield Plantation over the years, so I love southern weddings.

Another great site to check out is called Lover.ly. Have you heard of it? It's like a Pinterest for wedding enthusiasts, brides, wedding party members, etc. I go there for inspiration frequently now too. I've learned that you really need to branch out from Pinterest because if everyone is always being inspired by the same things then it can really have a negative impact on imagination. Try to branch out a little when you feel overwhelmed or are in a Pinterest coma, okay? A site like Lover.ly is a great escape.
