Weddings celebrate love, but it is also a huge business. According to the Knot, the top multiplatform resource for weddings, the average cost for a wedding (excluding the honeymoon) is around $31,000. Twenty-four percent of weddings are destination weddings, and women are likely to spend around $1,357 on a dress.

 

To celebrate one of the most significant days of your life, many wedding blogs can provide you knowledge and inspiration for this exciting time. Here are some of the most popular and top-rated blogs online.

 

A Practical Wedding

Picture 1 of 5

Are you sick of the mainstream wedding culture? Are you not looking to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on a dress, venue or DJ but wanted something more “laidback,” or “practical?” A Practical Wedding is the perfect site for a bride who does not consider herself “traditional” in terms of what she wants for her wedding. Some of the weddings they profile take place in a kid-friendly elementary school, a chic winery in Brooklyn, a wedding with hookahs and ice cream trucks and one wedding even features a pole dancer. They also have blog posts about how to get along with family, finding wedding dates and what it’s like to be a plus size bride. Who says we can’t start our own traditions?
