Getting inspired!

So some time has passed and yes, I am a bad blogger. There I said it! We’ve been so busy around here that I really have just dropped the ball. But, I promise I will pick it up again and try to juggle! So on to the post…. getting inspired!

Q: Where do you draw inspiration from? How do you pick colors, style, and theme for an event?

A: Evaluate your personal style. Look around.. what’s your taste? How do you dress and decorate your home? Are you a glam girl? Do you favor clean, classic, simple lines? Or maybe you like vintage chic. Jot down your ideas and make an inspiration folder. Save pictures and tear-outs of anything that draws your eye. It takes time of course,  but in the mean time, a great place to start is looking through magazines and of course blogs. So on that note, I thought I would compile my all-time favorite event-planning and inspiring blogs and pass on my addiction.

 Style Me Pretty  is the best blog featuring DIY tips, real weddings, and vendor references.  I love the photos submitted for this and ideas they feauture.

The Wedding Chicks is another amazing blog with beautiful photography, DIY ideas, downloads, and planning tips.

Green Wedding Shoes is full of galleries and real wedding features drawing from inspiration from all over for bridres right here in Southern California.

Ruffled is a beautiful blog featuring vintage weddings. I simply love the unique, Anthropologie-esque styles they feauture.

I also love the following sites for inspiration for showers and parties:

Hostess with the Mostess is amazing for real party inspiration for showers and parties.  I love love love this site for party ideas and great decor finds!

The Celebration Shoppe Blog, The Party Dress,  and The Creative Party Place are also great resources for the hostess of all of life’s celebrations.

So stay tuned for more of my ideas on how to determine your personal style! Thanks for reading!
