real wedding = real-life inspiration


Real wedding experiences are a great source of inspiration. Whether you're looking for ideas on décor, entertainment, food, or attire, you can find inspiration by learning about others' experiences. Get real wedding inspiration by reading articles, viewing photos and videos, and hearing true-life testimonials.

Creating a unique wedding experience can be a challenge, but looking at how others have chosen to celebrate can help you get started. Here are five ways you can use real wedding inspiration to create your own unique event:

  • Take note of unique wedding ideas: 
    Look for personalized and creative elements in real wedding articles and photos, such as unique themes, personal touches, or unexpected surprises.
  • Adapt popular elements: 
    Take popular elements from real weddings and make them your own by incorporating your personal style, preferences, and tastes.
  • Mix and match: 
    Grab elements from different real weddings and combine them to create a unique event that reflects your style.
  • Focus on what's important:
    Pay attention to the aspects of wedding examples that are most meaningful and important to you. Make sure to include those elements in your own event.
  • Get inspired by different cultures and traditions: 
    Look further for inspiration, and find ways to incorporate elements you see in a way that is true to you.

Try something new: The best weddings often feature unique and unconventional ideas, so decide to be the trendsetter at your event!

RSVPs and Seating Plans - Glowing Light Decor
Real Wedding Inspiration

Get inspired by real weddings and adapt popular elements to fit your style and preferences. You can create a unique and memorable wedding experience representing you as a couple. Learning about real weddings will help you see how other couples have incorporated their personal styles and preferences into their special day. For example, if you're a fan of vintage décor, you can find real weddings that feature vintage-inspired details and get ideas for your own event. Are you more interested in a more modern or bohemian vibe? Find real weddings that reflect those styles and get all the wedding inspiration you need.

Another benefit of learning about real weddings is that you can understand what works and what doesn't. You'll find example weddings that include dueling pianos, karaoke, a live band, or a magician to elevate the event's atmosphere. With true life inspiration on-hand, you can decide what works for you or even take your wedding concepts further!

where to find wedding inspiration

The six best places to find real-life wedding inspiration:

  1. Wedding articles
    Read interviews featuring real couples and their on-the-day galleries
  2. Social media platforms
    Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook are great places to find real weddings and get #inspo. You can follow hashtags like #realwedding and #weddinginspiration to see what others are doing.
  3. Word-of-mouth
    Ask friends and family members who recently married for their recommendations on photographers, florists, and other vendors. They can also provide firsthand insights into what worked well for them and what didn't.
  4. The Wedgewood Weddings Team
    Ask your dedicated experts what they've seen and get unbiased advice about what works in real life versus what only works in pictures.
  5. Real wedding events
    Attend bridal shows and wedding expos to meet other couples and on-trend vendors 
  6. Local wedding magazines
    Look for local wedding magazines in your area to see real weddings near you and get inspiration from local suppliers and wedding vendors.

These wedding resources are in place for you to gather inspiration from real weddings and start planning your masterpiece. An excellent real wedding article should provide a comprehensive overview of the event, including details on the venue, décor, food, entertainment, and attire. The best real wedding articles also include photos and videos that showcase the event's highlights and provide a sense of the atmosphere. Additionally, testimonials from the couple, their families, and guests can give valuable insights into what made the wedding a success.

When looking for real wedding inspiration, keep in mind your own personal style and preferences. It can be tempting to copy everything you see in a real wedding article, but choosing only a few elements that align with your vision will create an event that makes you happy. You can use real weddings as a starting point and then put your own spin on the ideas you find inspiring.

Real wedding inspiration can speed up the wedding planning process by providing a wealth of ideas and inspiration in one place. Rather than starting from scratch, you can use real weddings as a jumping-off point and then fine-tune the details to suit your preferences and needs. This can help you to make decisions more quickly and confidently, freeing up time for other aspects of your wedding planning.

Why read other couples' Love Stories for Wedding Inspiration?

Reading wedding love stories can be a valuable tool for couples planning their own wedding for several reasons:

  1. Inspiration for personal touches
    Example love stories can provide inspiration for incorporating personal touches into your wedding, such as including meaningful anecdotes in your vows or speeches.
  2. Understanding what makes a good wedding
    Reading about other couples' wedding experiences will give you a better understanding of what makes a good wedding and what elements are most important.
  3. Ideas for unique elements
    Love stories can highlight unique features from other weddings, like special activities or personalized décor, that you may not have considered before.
  4. Emotional connection
    Reading love stories can create an emotional connection with other couples and help you feel inspired and motivated as you plan your wedding.
  5. Empathy and relatability
    Love stories can provide insight into the ups and downs of the wedding planning process and help you understand that you are not alone in the challenges you may face.
  6. Remember why you're getting married! Love stories can remind you of the real purpose of the wedding: to celebrate the love and commitment between two people.

By reading wedding love story examples, you'll better understand what makes a good wedding and be inspired to create a unique and meaningful event that celebrates their love and commitment.

Use Real Wedding Experiences to Create your Wedding Vision

Real weddings are valuable for couples seeking inspiration for their events. By learning about the experiences of others, you can find ideas and inspiration that align with your personal style and preferences. Whether you are looking for ideas on décor, entertainment, food, or attire, real wedding stories and examples provide a wealth of inspiration to help you plan your wedding.
