Wedding Wants

The wedding blog world is crazy.

Scratch that. The blog world is crazy.

I've been a blogger for a few years now, and the blog world is definitely a different place. People are super friendly, even though they've never met you. You read about someone else's life for so long that you feel like you've known them for years.

But one of the craziest things about the blog world is how much pull bloggers have in our related industry. For example, in the triathlon blogging community, bloggers are offered free gifts from triathlon companies in exchange for a review on their blog... or even a giveaway (who doesn't love free stuff?!). Bloggers help get the word out about cool companies or new products.

In the wedding blog world, it's all about trends. You see the same trends over and over again on blog after blog. They seep into your brain until you just must have that at your own wedding.

So I present you now with my "wants". They aren't things that are crucial to our wedding day... just things I think are adorable.

Personalized Cake Topper ($45): These are super cute. And unlike the classic bride and groom cake toppers, this is something you might actually want to display for years to come. I'm wondering if I could make a set of these myself...


Photo Booth Props: My mom would absolutely die. To be clear, I would steer very clear of the leis, hats, boas, etc, that tend to add a touch of cheesy. Instead, chalkboard speech bubbles and mustaches on sticks add a some whimsical fun...


Personalized Hanger ($25): You can get ones that say "Kelly (heart) Ryan" too. Perfect for wedding day photos of the dress before it has been put on. After that? Probably useless. But still totally adorable...


Bunting: Any kind, really...


All of these things are totally overdone in the blogging world. But I have a feeling if I had any of them at our wedding, there would still be a vast majority who had never seen any of them before.

That's what's great about the wedding blog world. There is so much inspiration, and so many ways to make it your own.
