Ever wanted to know how to get Kate Middleton's hair? What a honeymoon to Peru would be like? Or how to tell your friend they're engaged to the wrong guy? You've come to the right place.
We're big believers that when it comes to wedding day inspiration, the more visual stimulus you can get, the better (which is why we've created our chock-a-block wedding Pinterest boards for your perusing pleasure). And if that visual stimulation happens to come with a comprehensive directory of all the best names in floristry, styling, bridal fashion, photography, cakes, and anything you else you could possibly think of to make your day as jaw-dropping-ly perfect as possible, than all the better. With that in mind we've done the scouting around for you and put together a hit list of the best bridal blogs, articles, and general wedding goss' to inspire (and entertain) you.
