Tag: Southern bride bloggers

Hello, friends! We’re actually planning to post a little updated guide to the world of Southern Weddings this week because we know there are lots of y’all joining us for the first time (or, at least, joining us for the first time as officially engaged ladies – ha!). We’ll focus on all the nooks and crannies of SW then, but today, we just wanted to highlight one particular nook — our Southern Bride Bloggers!

We love promoting these ladies because they give you something that we generally can’t. Yep, we’ve got the resources to share stunning real weddings and offer expert advice (side note — etiquette posts are making a comeback in 2013 – WHOO!), but, aside from our Southern Bride of the Month series and the occasional SW gal getting married, we don’t share the step-by-step of an average bride’s walk to the altar. But these ladies do, in great Southern style, and we’d love for you to check them out! You can see the full list right here.

Of course, we’re always looking for new belles to add to the list! We look for brides currently planning a wedding in the Southeastern United States that blog at least once a week. If you fit the bill and are interested, just leave a comment here with your blog address and a little about yourself and we’ll take a look at your site. Make sure you include a valid email in your comment so we can send over your badge!

Happy planning to all!

    I am just a few months out from my wedding and have been documenting things along the way. I’d love to be included! :)

    I’m just three months away from marrying my high school sweetheart and started documenting a little of the planning process: I don’t blog every week but I wish I did! :)

    I’m engaged to the most wonderul man in the world (sorry ladies!). I’m blogging each step of our wedding planning to keep not just family and friends in the loop, but anyone else who is planning too! We’re getting married in SC in August (7 months, whew!) and couldn’t be more excited about it. We live in Charlotte right now and will be making our way a little farther South after our nuptials. My blog has included everything so far from venue searching to bridesmaid gifts to suits for the boys and of course, my gorgeous gown. Take a peek and let me know what you think!

    I’m not exactly a bride, but a bride’s mom that blogs. My site was inspired by my own daughter’s wedding that was featured in V%…Hailey and Rhet! Would love to be on your list!

    I recently got engaged and it was completely unexpected. I am not getting married until June 28, 2014, but I am doing a lot of planning now because living in Raleigh, things get booked up quickly!

  7. avatar Ryann reply

    I’m a born and raised Carolina girl who is in the process of juggling life planning a wedding in May of 2013 to my high school sweet heart while also navigating my last year of college and the job search! I’ve had my lifestyle blog for a few years and have recently added posts about the progress of my wedding planning and am planning on consciously adding more in the new year!

    I’m an avid Southern Wedding blog reader and fairly obsessed with all things wedding :) To be a bride to the love of my life is probably one of the most exciting things EVER! Matt and I have been together almost 6 years and we’re getting married this July in Virginia. I can’t WAIT to be his wife :) I started randomly blogging wedding updates on our wedding website last year. My 2013 resolution is to blog EVERY day leading up to the wedding. I’ve always loved READING wedding blogs and I think it’s time I try a hand at being consistent with it! Emily’s post about writing down everything that happened on her wedding day really struck me – SO much time is going into this and it’s going to go by SO fast. Blogging is a great way to not only help other brides & wedding obsessed ladies, but to remind me in the months to come of all that’s happening! I’d love to add the “southern bride blogger” badge to my “little details” wedding blog :)

    Hey there! Just got engaged over Christmas and am looking forward to planning our August, 2013 NC wedding! Have just made the announcement on my blog – but planning on sharing every bit of information weekly as we prepare for the big day.


  11. avatar Emily reply

    I’d love to join this! I read every post, but I don’t live in the South. I’m from the Chicago area, but my tastes all revolve around southern charm and taste! Maybe if you open your parameters a bit I could join in and grab a badge. :)


  12. avatar Jessica Gogan reply

    Hey guys! I am a lifestyle blogger that just booked my wedding in Greenville, SC for next April 5, 2014. I work as a wedding and event planner and now am trying to navigate the craziness of planning my OWN wedding!! I love Southern Weddings Mag and love to keep up with the bride bloggers. I would love to join in!!! Thanks so much :)

  13. avatar Jessica Marsh reply

    Hi! I have barely scratched the service with my wedding planning and while I used to blog all the time I took a year long break but now that I am engaged I am getting back into it! I would love for you to look at my website and if you are interested feel insured that it will get a little more exciting around those parts pretty soon! :)

    Is there a group for southern newlyweds? I recently got married and have been sharing many of my wedding DIY as well as photos from my wedding. Just let me know!

We really couldn’t tear ourselves away from the Cinco de Mayo and Kentucky Derby celebrations once Monday rolled around. (I may have had a harder time with this. I’m sure I made chips and guac every day this week.) Did anyone do anything spectacular on Saturday?

A fun Fiesta Celebration in honor of Texas’ independence was the perfect way to ease the transition.

Emily’s getting pumped for her trip to the National Stationery Show in just a few weeks. As a paper prelude, we featured four Southern spring invitation suites from Kristy at Momental Designs.

April shower bring May flowers, you say? We thought it was the perfect time to show off the beautiful bouquets that graced the pages of V4.

One look at Emily’s visit to the Inn at Palmetto Bluff might make you a little green with envy. Charming cottages, wonderful food and 20,000 acres of natural beauty make it an ideal honeymoon getaway.

We were all ears when Emily told us about what accessories she’ll be donning at her wedding in September. Lovely shoes, simple jewelry and a gorgeous veil? We’re big fans. Bonus points to Em for taking the “borrowed” in “something old, new, borrowed and blue” to the next level!

We’re bringing our model call back down below the Mason-Dixon! We know we’ve got some gorgeous readers, so if you’re free on June 20 and near Richmond, Virginia, join us for a V5 photo shoot!

Southern Stems never fail to make us fall in love with them. This week, Texas’ state flower, the bluebonnet stole our hearts with their vivid color.

Real Weddings are the bees knees!

Gabrielle + Paul attributed the warm Southern atmosphere of their wedding to their gorgeous venue. We think the addition of pink peonies and luxe linens are the cherry on top! See it here.

Good news for the weekend!

Sperry Tents have arrived in Charleston! You might be familiar with these pretty sailcloth tents (Emily’s using them for her own wedding!), and we’re thrilled that they’ve expanded their original Charlottesville, Virginia office to Charleston. The new office will also offer lighting, flooring, furniture by request, and other rental accessories! See their site for more details.

Before y’all leave, we had to share these adorable engagement photos of Sherry and her beau. How sweet is it that she included a copy of V4 in her session? Thanks Sherry and Epic Photography!

Finally, happy wedding weekend to one of our Southern Bride Bloggers, Tina!! We’re sending lots of love your way!

Have an amazing weekend, lovelies!

    I had a spectacular Cinco de Mayo! It’s one of my favorite holidays. This year was exceptionally special since on Saturday I graduated college, spent the weekend at a beach resort celebrating with family, and then got engaged on the balcony overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico! I’m still on cloud 9 from all the excitement!

Remember wayyyy back when we first issued a call for all Southern bride bloggers? Oh yes, here :) Well, we finally got our rears in gear and set up the page, which you can find here!

I know we have tons of new readers since we first posted about this, so if you’d like to be listed, just leave a comment below with your blog address! Make sure you include a valid email in your comment so we can send over your badge. We only ask that you are a bride currently planning a wedding in the Southeastern United States, and that you blog at least once a week! We’re also open to hearing from Southern gals planning weddings outside the South.

P.S. Love this sort of stuff? Then we think you’ll love these links:

    I love Southern Weddings and have been following you guys for over a year, your website is truly inspirational for all brides out there. I would be proud to place your badge on my blog, my fiance and I are getting married in Old Town Alexandria, VA on June 9th!

  2. avatar Courtney reply

    I would love a button! I’m planning our June wedding and have just recently began posting about some of the stuff I don’t care that other people know, it’s so much fun to hear from other brides who are going through the same process!

  3. avatar Megan reply

    So fun! I started blogging before I got engaged and once I got engaged I started doing “Wedding Wednesday’s!” Would love to put your button on my blog, Fried Green Pickles! :) We’re from and getting married in Charleston, SC on March 30, 2013.

  4. avatar Kelsey reply

    I would love a button for my blog, Southern in Love! I’ve been blogging since we got engaged in November of 2010 and can’t believe the wedding is getting so close! June 30th will be here before I know it! I love to discuss our wedding and how it’s progressing as well as other fun (and Southern) things.

  5. avatar Meagan reply

    Just missed it as I’m now a Southern Newlywed! I was recently married in the South and blogged throughout my entire planning process on Southern Weddings was a huge influence and great inspiration. Thanks SW!

  6. avatar Kendall reply

    I would love a button for my blog, argyle & paisley! I have been blogging since before my fiance (Jamison) proposed in October 2011, but since then I have almost only blogged about wedding things. Jamison and I are both from Charlotte, NC and that is where we are getting married on September 29, 2012. I have been looking at Southern Weddings blog since before we got engaged as well, and have every issue of the magazine!

  7. avatar Liz reply

    We are having a garden wedding this September in Virginia. I took most of my inspiration from the blog and magazine. Love you guys!

  8. avatar Taryn reply

    Hi! I love SW!! I started The Sweet Iced Tea Soiree blog when I first started planning my wedding, I’ve realized how much I love it, and I’m currently in the middle of event and wedding planning school now!! I must say, most of my inspiration for my October 6th 2012 wedding at The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, has come from Southern Weddings magazine!

  9. avatar Sheila Humphrey reply

    I actually started my blog to document my crafting projects as I started learning to quilt last August and began making quilts for friends. After I got engaged in February I decided that planning my wedding would be the new focus of the project blog for a while, so I’m keeping family and friends who are out-of-town updated with the details through the blog. My fiance and I are getting married on October 27 in charming downtown Ocean Springs, Mississippi! I would love to add your button and hopefully bring more Mississippi brides your way. :)

    I’m originally from New York, but I came to Virginia for middle school – just in time to fall in love with this gorgeous commonwealth AND meet my Georgia-born love! Fast forward through our friendship in high school, losing touch in college, and moving back to Virginia at the same time, and now we’re engaged! We’re getting married on June 1, 2013, in Virginia and I couldn’t be happier! My blog is at and I’d love to be listed as a Southern bride blogger :)

    I’m a southern girl living in cold & snowy Maine!
    My fiance (a true Mainer and lobsterfisherman) are getting married on September 1st, 2012 in an old barn in Buxton, Maine.
    I started a blog to share my journey to ‘I DO!’ I love DIY projects and LOVE every aspect about planning my wedding! I am Southern Wedding OBSESSED! You gals are amazing!

  12. avatar Angela@ The Southern Fried Bride reply

    I launched my blog as a bride-to-be and this SBB program was discontinued during that time. As a newlywed, I have become a bridal blogger. I dearly want to be a part of this program.

      Hi Angela! So sorry to disappoint you, but we don’t have any plans to list regular wedding blogs (i.e. not brides currently planning) at this time! If we do that in the future, we’d love to have you! :)

  13. avatar Emily reply

    Hi ladies! I think I’ve emailed you all — we’re happy to have you! :)

I’ve been blogging each week since my engagement in my “Wedding Wednesday” section! I’m having a HUGE wedding, but doing it on a budget! The whole premise of my blog in the first place was ways to live a champagne lifestyle when you’re a poor teacher! Thanks for providing this so we can connect with other brides!!

  21. avatar Sarah Schneider reply
