Planning the perfect wedding? Like everything in the modern world, Instagram has totally got your back. Here's some seriously stylish accounts that will take your Big Day from sweet to swoon (you can thank me with cake)…
Weddings. Who’d have ’em, eh? Well, lots of us, actually, and even if you fall in to the ‘minimal bride’ tribe (nope, I’ve never met one, either), there’s much to consider: the stationery, the flowers, the food, the venue, the band, the photographer, THE DRESS. And whether you’re searching for last-minute styling ideas, or excitedly anticipating that romantic knee-drop, planning your Big Day takes up a serious amount of time and willpower (spoiler: you still can’t afford a vintage carousel). But listen up, ladies: social media is officially your friend when it comes to researching your celebrations, and it’s time to make Instagram your digital maid of honour. We’ve navigated the world of wedding accounts and curated our favourite feeds to ensure you nail those nuptials in style. So all you have to do is get following. You’re welcome.
For the flowers… @jardinebotanic
Jam-packed with beautiful blooms, this is your one-stop shop for standout bouquet ideas and modern big-day arrangements. And don’t expect standard shots of pink roses, either. Jardine, a florist and wedding stylist from Sydney, loves loose, garden-like posies that will add a more natural, personal touch to your decor. Gorgeous.
For the dress… @lovemydress
Pro blogger Annabel Beeforth has a penchant for vintage and art deco-style weddings, but there’s plenty of gorgeous gowns in alternative styles to lust after on her account. Team MC is coveting this sparkling number from Jenny Packham right now.
For the venue… @thevenuereport
A tad over the church do and manor-house reception? You’ll love this super-charming account, which showcases sun-drenched beach dinners, quirky tree-top celebrations and mountain-range rendezvous. Scroll through for a creativity boost.
For the finishing touches… @onestylishdayuk
This feed is all about the details – and the more unique, the better. Shoes, glassware, table plans, favours – however you want to make your mark, this is where it’s at.
For the hair… @instibraid
Braids. They’re very bride-friendly and there’s an amazing catalogue of wedding-appropriate styles to choose from here. Top tip: plaits look particularly gorgeous and feminine with a touch of gypsophila – who knew?
For the cake… @lily_vanilli_cake
Feast your eyes on these confection perfections. They’re a world away from your run-of-the-mill sponge tiers and
look – and taste – divine. Let them eat cake, indeed.
For the groom… @groominspiration
Somewhere between the tulle skirts and tasting menus, grooms get a little lost in the planning, but here’s all the inspo you and your man need to get the groom looking dapper. Packed with chic and original styling ideas, plus modern takes on classic looks, this is where the guy gets a look in.
For the jewellery… @the_lane
Your wedding bands are forever, so invest some time in researching the right styles for you. The Lane specialises in bringing exciting new designers and brands to the forefront with beautiful imagery, so if you can’t find what you want on the high street, give this a shout – you might just find ‘The One’.
For the photography… @odylynetheceremony
After a more eclectic, ethereal feel on your Big Day? Check this feed out. It’s an amazing collection of whimsical weddings and fantastical styling that pushes the boundaries. Think Florence Welch in a sparkling gown at Secret Garden. Already obsessed? Us too.
For the styling… @thelittlelendingco
Perfect for rustic, country-chic themes, this feed covers all the recent trends, from succulent tablecentres to vintage bicycles masquerading as gorgeous venue signage. And, even better, you can hire a lot of what you see direct from The Little Lending Co. Bonus.
For the stationery… @wedding_paper_chic
Never underestimate the power of premium paper. The style of stationery you choose will indicate (rightly or wrongly) the tone of the wedding to guests, so put some time in now and scroll through these beauties.
For the wedding party… @weddingsparrow
OK, so @weddingsparrow isn’t strictly all about your maids, but there’s some beautiful examples of how damn good they could look on here. From floral, 50-inspired frocks, to glam Grecian goddesses, your best mates will be thrilled if you get some seriously stylish direction before hitting the shops.
For the wow factor… @rileyandgrey
