Southern Weddings

Author: Sierra

Here at Southern Weddings, we take pride in our collection of real Southern weddings. There are currently 60+ real weddings in our gallery collection, and we are always adding more — 2-3 a week! If you’re planning a wedding, looking for ideas, or just fascinated by gorgeous photography and color combos, you’ll soon be hooked on our galleries (that is, if you aren’t already). Because we know you’ll love them, we wanted to give them a proper introduction on the blog, and give y’all some quick tips on how to use them most effectively!

One nice feature of the galleries is that you’re able to sort them by location and color. Only want pink weddings in Louisiana? You got it! Additionally, each week, we choose a gallery of the week to highlight favorite weddings and details from our archives. Catch what the featured gallery of the week is in our weekly round-ups or at the top of the real weddings page. This week’s is Kiley + Tim’s blue and pink beach wedding from Paul Johnson. Could their pinwheels be any cuter?

Ready for a little up-close gallery tour? Katie + Charlie’s is a great example. The location and color are always at the top of the page, beneath the title. If you find a wedding you love, you can go directly to the original post to read the interview and full intro and see comments from editors and other brides by clicking “View the Original Post and tell us what you think.” To move through the photos in the gallery, click the right side of the large photo to go to the next photo, or the left side of the large photo to go to the previous photo. You can also click through using the thumbnails, the smaller photos that scroll across the bottom.

The best thing about the galleries is how easy they are to share with friends! Share your favorite galleries on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links below the gallery photos.

What are you waiting for? Get browsing, y’all!

The day has come! Southern Weddings V3, our third issue, which debuted in October 2010, is officially sold out!! For eight months we shipped copies to 45+ states and 30+ countries around the world, and now we’re left with a box or two in our office closet for posterity. Hey, we warned y’all! Thank you SO MUCH for the generous, overwhelming support — you guys made this happen, which gets nothing short of a yippee-kay-yai-yay from us! Thank you, dear readers!

Our second issue, V2, is still available, which should help tide you over until V4 comes out in September. Purchase here!

For those of you who were not able to get a copy in time, you can still get some V3 goodness! Over the next few weeks we’ll be posting our favorite spreads on the blog for some good ol’ reminiscing.

Remember, you can also always head on over to our beautiful editorial galleries which are filled to the brim with beauties from V3. And my, they are beauties!

MOST exciting, though? With V3 completely out the door, we’re focusing even harder on our next issue, Southern Weddings V4. It’s dropping in September, and we. are. SO EXCITED!! Believe me, y’all will want IN on this action. This issue is truly going to be bigger and better than ever!

So how can you get involved? There are a few ways. Print real weddings submissions are due July 15 (we’ve already got 7 weddings from around the Southeast, and are looking for 5-7 more!). See the full details here on how and what to submit, then email Emily.

Most importantly, you’ll want in on a gorgeous ad in this next glossy! Email Whitney for a copy of our media kit. The ad deadline is also July 15, so get in touch quick to reserve your spot! We guarantee you’ll be glad you did.

We cannot WAIT to share the best moments of V3 with you as we get ready for V4’s release. There will be another behind-the-scenes shoot post in two weeks, and we’ll open preorders for V4 in August, so get excited!!

Hey, y’all! Last Friday’s first-ever Southern Weddings Yard Sale was a smashing success!! We had such an amazing time meeting readers, drinking sweet tea and Cheerwine, and sending wedding goodies off to lovely homes (despite the 95+ degree North Carolina heat!). As promised, we’re back with lots of photos.

First, the set up! We started the morning stocked with so much wedding goodness, it spilled out of the garage and down the driveway. A small sampling…

The SW ladies were ready for the big day, too, flowered sundresses and all! We also helpfully told readers what currency we were accepting (including biscuits, naturally), and set out delicious Sugarland cupcakes (complete with cupcake flags from Emily!), cookies, sweet tea, and Cheerwine.

And then the readers arrived! We had SUCH a great time meeting y’all — HUGE thanks to everyone who came out! A partial list of our new (and old!) friends (apologies if we missed someone!): Annemie of Megapixie Photography (who posted her own recap here!), Sarah from A Southern Season, Becca from Rebecca Rose Events, Megan (whose wedding we just featured here + here!), Jamie from Viva L’Event, Marletha from In Season Events, Deidra from Memorable Milestones, Barbara from An Elegant Affair, Alanna from Parties by Bash, Samantha from Bliss by Sam, and Nancy of Nancy Ray Photography.

With the help of these generous ladies and more, we raised $1,489 for Stop Hunger Now and Southern tornado victims! WAHOO!!

For those of you who couldn’t make it out, we hope you enjoyed this little photo tour! We had a blast and are definitely open to hosting more events this summer for local ladies, so tell us — how would you like to hang with the Southern Weddings gals? Cupcake party? Cake decorating class? Outdoor barbeque? Brunch at Fosters? Let us know, and we’ll make it happen!

    I’m sooo bummed that I couldn’t make it. Especially after seeing the pictures! Do you all plan to do any more yard sales in the future?! Hopefully so! I think a cake decorating class is an amazing idea!!! Outdoor barbeque sounds great as well…..although, can you wait until the fall for that one?! lol You all are the best!

    • avatar Sierra reply

      Hi Laura! We are definitely considering it after such a turnout and seeing some of the stuff we have left. And yes, those are great ideas! We will be sure to give a shout out on the blog if another yard sale is in the future or for any other activities we plan for our readers.

    Ahh, so many of my favorite people in one spot. I so wish sometimes I lived in the South so I could see ya’ll more often!

      Brit @ Landlocked Bride: We wish you were here, too, Brit! You need come visit!!!

  3. avatar Erin reply

    Oh man I so wish I lived down there to attend this awesome event!!! So glad you had a great time, ladies :)

  4. avatar Megan reply

    Hi Ladies! Thanks for hosting this! I definitely came home with a few great items! Amber and I had a fabulous time, glistening like crazy in that heat! Cake decorating would be so fun!! So would a shrimp boil or a bbq! Love it :)

    I have to know where that adorable lobster dress came from:)

  6. avatar Kailey-Michelle reply

    I think I need to move closer and increase my airmiles so I can come have fun with you ladies! Looks like you had a blast and for charity?! Even better. Congrats!

  7. avatar Paula reply

    Boo! Any chance of doing an ‘internet yard sale?’ I’d pay for freight! (To Australia…..) Either that or will just have to move there!

  8. avatar Corinna Hoffman reply

    That’s awesome that ya’ll raised that much for charities! :) That lobster dress is awesome!! Lara–you look amazing for a mom-to-be! :)

  9. avatar Caroline reply

    The yard sale was great! Thanks for hosting it! How about an event to learn how to arrange flowers for centerpieces? Okay, that’s a completely selfish request because I have about 500 mason jars that we hauled up from an old moonshine still to fill with flowers for the reception. No joke!

    • avatar Sierra reply

      Caroline: I loved reading your story about how you got the mason jars. Such a trek, but I’m sure you will incorporate them beautifully! Way to put that fiance to work! And Tyler’s was indeed a perfect pick to cool down after the intense heat at the yard sale. Yum!

    Hate, hate, hate that I missed all the SW goodness and fun! Next time ladies… next time!
