If you are new to wedding planning and the world of wedding blogs, chances are you have already discovered the heavy hitters (e.g. Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes and Rock n Roll Bride) of the wedding blog world.

If you have been planning a little longer or are a newly married bride, you might have a few more wedding blogs on your roster reading list. These are likely to be more specialized sites, ones focusing on a certain region (ahem, Little Vegas Wedding, ahem) or even a certain style of wedding (modern wedding style on Brooklyn Bride) or even a planning element (like music, as seen on Soundtrack to I Do.) The cool thing about these sites? They are more likely to have content and ideas that aren’t seen by everyone and their bridal party, and may be more applicable to your wedding situation.

I thought I might use this opportunity to expose you to four wedding blogs that I think share content that is really useful for those planning Vegas weddings. You may already know about them, and that’s great! Please share any wedding blogs you like or that you think other Vegas couples should be reading in the comments.


 My Hotel Wedding

My Hotel Wedding

What My Hotel Wedding is about —
Stylish hotel weddings, and helping you plan one! Started by two sisters with experience in the hotel industry and event planning, this is an incredibly informative site.

I feel a certain kinship with the editors and writers at My Hotel Wedding, as so many of the real weddings featured on LVW are in hotels. They’ve kindly let me guest post for them, and I’ve featured the Las Vegas wedding of one of the founders, so we’re blog buddies. But the truth is, their content is super useful and I would love them even if we didn’t share our common interest and a blog-friendship.

What they have to say about themselves:
“My Hotel Wedding is designed to be your one-stop site for seamless hotel wedding planning. By providing you with imagery from real hotel weddings around the world, fabulous fashion inspiration to help you style your big event, and tips from seasoned professionals in the industry, we hope to provide you with knowledge and creative ideas for your own dream hotel wedding!”

Simple Elope

Simply Elope

What Simply Elope is about —
Simply Elope focuses on the intimate side of weddings: elopements. If you are after a larger wedding with all the traditional fixings, this probably isn’t the place for you. (Because it might convince you how amazing it would be to elope!) This blog is all about just the two of you. If you are weighing the options of a Vegas elopement, Simply Elope will give you some insight into the planning and how your wedding might look, as well as provide some great tips.

What they have to say about themselves:
“Simply Elope was started with one thing in mind; to share beautiful elopements and inspire couples by bringing them fun and creative ideas. Whether it’s a trip to city hall, a weekend at a bed and breakfast, with a few close friends and family, or in the living room of a couple’s first home together, elopements can be edgy, romantic, and everything in between and this blog wants to share them all.”

Fly Away Bride

Fly Away Bride

What Fly Away Bride is about:
What better combination than weddings and travel? From Italy to Morocco, Greece to the Grand Canyon, Fly Away Bride features unique global destinations for weddings. Although this Ireland-based wedding blog focuses on destination weddings in other parts of the world (think Africa, Europe and elsewhere), you will find much of the advice and ideas are useful for destination Vegas couples.

What they have to say about themselves:
“Our aim is to inspire and inform couples planning an unforgettable destination wedding and to showcase all things pretty that we can with this end in mind.”
