Wedding Resources ~ Best Blogs for Brides, Ottawa Wedding Photography

There are so many things for a bride to think about before the wedding and I know before I got married I wanted to look at many many websites for ideas and inspiration.

I have compiled a list of my favourites, and ones that helped me before my own wedding last summer.

The Wedding Chicks *a personal fave* ~ weddingchicks.com

The Wedding Chicks ~ Blog

I love this website – lots of really amazing ideas and always has great resources, even for Canadians! I also ordered shirts from them for my wedding; one that said Bride and the other said Maid of Honour. Too cute!

Weddingbells Blog ~ weddingbells.ca/blogs

Weddingbells Blog

The Weddingbells Blog (and website) is great because it’s 100% Canadian – gotta love that! Offices are based out of Toronto so if there’s something you must have that they feature, it’s only a shortish drive away. This blog/website is the companion to the Weddingbells Magazine (also a great resource).

Weddingbee ~ weddingbee.com


Weddingbee is great because it’s blog posts done by either real life brides/couples or wedding vendors. Lots of great insight and info on here and I spent hours pouring over this blog when I first found it.

The Bride’s Cafe ~ thebridescafe.com

The Bride's Cafe Blog

Beautiful blog with lots of inspiration. Only downfall is there is no Canadian content on it.

Kiss the Groom ~ kissthegroom.com

Kiss the Groom

Kiss the Groom is a blog told in beautiful photos. Some stunning imagery on it.

100 Layer Cake ~ 100layercake.com/blog

100 Layer Cake

100 Layer Cake is a mix of DIY, real weddings, style and inspiration.

Not blogs, but very helpful

Wedding Wire ~ weddingwire.com

Wedding Wire

This was easily the most helpful website I found and used before we got married. It has everything you need to plan your day and keep it organized, and for an organization-freak like me, it was perfect! Don’t let the .com extension fool you though, this website has A TON of Canadian content and vendors and if your vendors aren’t in their system, you can add them in!

Stephanie James Couture ~ stephaniejamescouture.com

Stephanie James Couture

Stephanie James is a designer in the US and I just fell completely and utterly in LOVE with her dresses. If I wasn’t lucky enough to have my wonderful Mother custom make my wedding dress, I would have sought out a Stephanie James dress. I don’t believe they sell them in Ottawa, but Sash and Bustle in Toronto does.

iDiY ~ i-do-it-yourself.com/


iDiY is a great resource for the bride who wants to add some personal hand-made touches to her wedding. There are many projects and ideas on this blog, and some are not even for weddings!

If you have any wedding blogs you love – leave it in the comments!

Have a wonderful day,
