I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, I’m a blog-a-holic. I read far too many blogs for anyone to keep straight, and yet I still keep my Google Reader jam packed. I’ve had the (1000+) post notice from Google before. Er, several times. This is when Google Reader gives up counting. Sometimes, I’ve had to just hit “Mark all as read.” But if I can get away with it, I’ll try to skim through and/or read all the good stuff.
Believe it or not, I still spend time reading wedding blogs. Why? Market research, of course. I love seeing what trends are in style, going out of style, and simply timeless. And no, I’m not longing to plan another wedding. Trust me, I’ll leave that to the wedding planners. But with a handful of friends springing up engaged, I thought I’d share my favorite wedding blogs.
- Southern Weddings Magazine – Real Southern wedding inspiration.
- Elizabeth Anne Designs – So much inspiration, and wedding bloggers.
- Green Wedding Shoes – Real weddings, photoshoots, trends.
- 100 Layer Cake – More real weddings and color palette inspiration.

So where do I spend my time in blog land when it’s not related to weddings? It’s a mix between business and fun.

And because a picture will spice this post up, here’s my sister’s bouquet from the wedding.
