soul | big day research

because I've been scouring the internet for good wedding resources, I thought I'd put these out there in case you too are planning a wedding that you want to be both meaningful, feminist-y, and not cost a gazillion dollars - oh, and really pretty.  without further ado, my favorite wedding websites:


1. A Practical Wedding
* by Meg Keane, a website dedicated to keeping it real.  the best message that I took from  her (and her book, which I totally recommend) is that at the end of the day, it's about the two of you combining your lives and forming a partnership, everything else, as they say, is frosting on the cake!  Probably my favorite all-around wedding website.  The place to go if you want to READ about weddings.

2. Green Wedding Shoes
* they just have the most beautiful weddings to look at - and each one has a "best moment of the day" (which almost always has nothing to do with the little details they've handmade for months with their mother and sisters and almost always does have to do with locking eyes with their new wife/husband).
* They also have pretty fun DIY stuff if you're into that.  The place to go if you want to SEE real weddings.

3. Offbeat Bride
* a website focused on weddings that reflect the people getting married, they discuss lots of fun traditions (e.g. ring warming, for example, which I think I'm going to use in our wedding); a good reminder that you don't have to do everything everyone else does, but you can keep the sentiment of the tradition - your way.
*and bonus, it's a lot of fun nerdy/science stuff if you're into that, which we are.  think giant legoes, carnivals, and star wars figurine cake toppers.  The place to go if you want to BREAK OUT of wedding culture.

4. Hello May
*an australian bridal blog that is focused on the whimsical side of weddings
the place to go if you want INSPIRATION for a whimsical wedding
