2. Polka Dot Bride
This is such a cute little blog. Polka Dot Bride promotes itself as ‘Australia’s Most Loved Wedding Blog’ and it certainly lives up to this statement.
The Editor, Ms Polka Dot, created Polka Dot Bride because of her fascination with weddings from an early age. This obsession has helped her create a blog to inspire even the most uninspired bride.
Stories of beautiful real-life weddings are the foundation of this blog. If you want to see how other couples have made their vintage wedding dreams come to life this is the place to go.
3. Hello May
Hello May was created to successfully connect wedding vendors with bride and grooms to be like no other bridal magazine or website has done before.
It certainly does that.
As well as the usual real-life wedding stories most blogs have, it also includes real-life engagement stories, inspirational articles, stationery ideas, vendor profiles and cinematography.
Our personal favourite is the Hey Day page which takes a look at famous weddings of yesteryear, such as Elizabeth Taylor and Conrad Hilton’s nuptials back in 1950s.
And if all this isn’t enough, you can always purchase the magazine to go with it – either online or in-store.
4. Style Me Pretty – Australia Weddings
Style Me Pretty is a US based wedding blog which also has a presence in Australia. Just select your location to access bridle stories and ideas for your chosen location.
Fantastic imagery and real life stories are the name of the game on this blog. Not only will you hear wedding stories from couples that live in your area, you will also get some ideas on suppliers and venues in your chosen location too.
The site also includes seasonal wedding trends, bridal beauty and a look book showing a range of dresses, accessories and jewelry.
The blog also includes DIY projects for those creative wedding couples looking to save a bit of money by doing it themselves. You can learn how to make candlesticks, vases, coasters, flowers, even your own wedding cake.
5. Vintage Bride
Vintage Bride is a portal for those seeking inspiration and advice when planning a vintage, unique or hand-crafted wedding. You won’t find any suggestions for chair covers with shiny sashes on here. Oh no!
Vintage Bride is not only a blog but a printed, handbag sized magazine too – perfect for on-the-go brides. They also run boutique wedding fairs throughout the year in the major cities nationwide.
We hear they have the most comprehensive Australian wedding directory too.
So grab yourself a coffee and scroll through their blog, wedding directory, or buy a copy of their magazine. You won’t be disappointed.
6. Chic Vintage Brides
Okay, we cheated. This one isn’t an Australian blog. But we had to include Chic Vintage Brides, simply because the photographs are stunning.
If you are serious about having an all-out vintage wedding, make sure you follow this blog. It contains a wealth of imagery and ideas that truly inspire. Even if you weren’t planning on getting married, the photographs alone make you want to!
What we really love is the way the stories have been broken down into different types of weddings. For example 1930s through to 1960s, retro weddings, rustic weddings – even elopements! It’s excellently put together.
There is also a section which offers some inspiration for how to style the alter, or reception decor.
