Inspiration: Where do you find it?

Brides these days have no end to the number of resources available for them from which to gather inspiration. With a plethora of blogs and magazines taking care of the guess work, it has become much easier to find and set a foundation for one’s wedding. That being said, I think it is important to remember that inspiration can be found in unexpected places. It is vital to keep your mind open to what may spark the AHA! moment.

Case in point. I saw this gorgeous poster on the interwebs (from Zhou Fan)


…and I thought, What a lovely wedding would this make. Here’s an attempt at translating art into event…


So if you are undecided (or overwhelmed by the mass of wedding inspiration), go therefore and be inspired without limiting yourself to just wedding-ish stuff. Find something you absolutely LOVE and no matter where it is from or what it is, use that as your guiding force. My darling friend Jessica Claire is doing just that. Her wedding is based on a pair of shoes. What do you know?

  1. Lovely idea! I find inspiration often in the oddest things; a sound, the way the branches silhouette against the sky, a puddle of water after a rainstorm. Thanks for the reminder not to be so literal when looking for wedding inspirations;)

  2. so true, you can find inspiration anywhere at anytime – i found it once by looking at cake plates:

  3. This is exactly the color palette I want for my wedding. Thanks for putting this together; I’m definitely saving it as a resource!
