Real weddings

I know that brides are completely obsessed with looking at real weddings as they provide so much inspiration for their own big days. They might even help you decide on the type of wedding you want to have. Whether you have always dreamed of getting married on the beach, in the city, or country, our real wedding section will hopefully help you make up your mind. Have you decided if you are getting married in the spring, summer, autumn or winter? If not, we have a section specifically dedicated to seasonal weddings that will provide you with lots of ideas and inspiration. Think carefully on the colours and style that would suit your wedding. Black and white would look very stylish for a contemporary wedding whilst pastel colours work better for country/romantic celebrations. We know that the Style & the Bride followers are planning all sorts of different weddings which is why we ensure that we show as many different styles of weddings in the real wedding section as possible. It is important to remember that just because your best friend and her husband had a vintage wedding, it doesn’t mean this is the right style of wedding for you. Think carefully about you and your partner’s interests. Did you both grow up in the city? Do you love all things modern? Then if this is the case, a very contemporary wedding is right for you. If on the other hand, you are a country girl at heart, it would undoubtedly make sense to have a country wedding. Take time looking at all the real weddings in this section before making up your mind about the style of wedding you want to have. After all, it is the biggest day of your life so you will want it to be as perfect as it can be!
