Weddings occur year-round, but summer seems to be known by many as wedding season. Regardless of the time of year, brides spend numerous hours searching for inspiration so they can create the perfect day for their soon-to-be-spouse, their friends & family, and themselves. Weddings are a reflection of a couple's taste & interests. It's also a time when brides can fulfill a fantasy of their perfect day. A fairly new site, Lover.ly, is a great tool for brides-to-be. The site is described as being a visual search engine & cloud scrapbook for all your wedding inspiration. With a database that is updating & evolving daily, the site has an archive of over 100,000 images organized by their blogging editors & community of users.
Lover.ly allows you to easily find gorgeous wedding images & ideas, save them in bundles you create, and share them with your friends and bridesmaids. I love that you can browse by color (the site features 16 popular wedding colors), style (vintage, rustic, military, etc.), or category (flowers, rings, stationery, etc.).
According to the most recent newsletter, several trends have surfaced over the past month. These are based on what topics have been frequently searched for on the site. Three of the top-emerging wedding trends are aqua & peach (photo 1), a combo that creates a cool, soft summer wedding palette; equestrian elegance (photo 2), perfect for rustic, barn weddings; and burlap & lace (photo 3), a textural combination that many - including me - are fawning over.
