This Week I'm Loving | Bridal Blogger Alisha

I'm sad to report that this week was a total fail on the wedding planning front. Due to the Easter holiday, the three site visits I had scheduled fell through which pretty much halted my progress. Begrudgingly, I rescheduled all of my appointments and found myself with nothing to do but wait. 

I decided to put the venue obsession on the back-burner for this week since my hands were pretty much tied. With my newly found free time, I took to Wedding Gawker and Pinterest for a little non-venue related inspiration. Today I'll be sharing my top 3 wedding related blog posts from this past week. I encourage you to check them out as well because there're awesome and I bet they'll inspire you too!

Fun Bridal Shower Inspiration

First and foremost, I have to mention Wedding Party's awesome post which highlights a ton of fun bridal shower ideas. I personally have never been a huge fan of this tradition but thanks to this post, I can't wait for mine! I mean - Mimosa bar, lipstick shaped cookies, and a pinata? Count me in!

Bestie PHOTO SHOOT Inspiration 

I came across this magical little photo shoot featured by Confetti Daydreams a few nights ago and my jaw dropped! Why didn't anyone tell me that best friend photo shoots are a thing? 

I never would have dreamed up this idea on my own but now that I know about it, I'm officially adding it to my to do list. I mean, how many times will you have the excuse to get all dolled up, wear a flower crown, and take professional pictures with your best friends? Bridal party - get ready!

Modern style inspiration 

Lastly, my favorite post of the whole week came from 100 Layer Cake. I fell head over heals for this stunning wedding inspiration shoot. I mean...there are no words.

I love everything about it from the brides makeup to the sweet backdrop. It's the perfect mix of bold geometric patterns and soft elements. Basically, the shoot is perfection and I'll be referencing it throughout my design planning process.

Even though I was pretty bummed about having to put my venue hunt on hold, it's been nice having a week to just relax and fall back in love with wedding stuff.I feel super energized and can't wait for my first site visit this Sunday! Check back next week for an update on that. 

I really hope you liked this little post and I'd love it if you'd share a link to what inspired you this week in the comment area!
