In 2019, finding the right kind of wedding blog to suit you, your beliefs and your style can be tricky.

But fear not - we’ve scoured the web to find the best and coolest selection of wedding blogs out there, and we’re pretty confident there’s something for everyone in our comprehensive list. Inclusive, diverse and distinctive: these are the wedding blogs you need in your life.
Best Diverse & Inclusive Wedding Blog
We have a long standing love for everything Nu Bride - and with good reason. Founder Nova Reid found herself sucked into all-things-wedding after getting engaged and excitedly flicking through the established, mainstream wedding blogs and magazines we’re all au fait with. To her disappointment, she noted a lack of inclusion and diverse representation, and so made it her mission to establish Nu Bride: ‘a blog for the modern couple, which is fun, informative and where possible, inclusive… Ultimately I wanted to make a conscious effort to provide positive images of beautiful women of all ethnicities’. After a roaring success with the 2019 ‘Nu Bride: The Wedding Show’, we can’t wait to see what’s next from the pioneering wedding blog.
Way out Wedding:
Best Anti-cliché, Cool Bride Wedding Blog
‘We do it for all you lovestruck couples out there wanting your wedding day styling to reflect who you truly are and not just be a parade of outdated traditions and things you felt you should have.’ In the wise words of Way Out Wedding, there’s no point losing ‘yourself’ to your wedding in pursuit of the ‘perfect day’. This is the site for anti-brides-and-grooms seeking an alternative wedding: imaginative, chilled-out and cool. The styling is diverse, non-traditional and ultimately, unparalleled in terms of catering for tastes seeking something more than the wedding fads we see sprawled over Instagram.
Bride & Tonic:
Best Homespun, Ethical Weddings Blog
The ‘bridal blog who believe in simplicity and sustainability,’ Bride & Tonic share inspiration and adoration for small, intimate weddings whilst supporting independent and local wedding businesses. The ‘soothing tonic to your wedding woes’, the blog aims to offer an oasis of calm in the wedding planning industry, which can be oversaturated with content, tricks and ideas that are, frankly, overwhelming. Kick back, pour yourself a gin (and tonic), and relaxed as you browse the site’s simple yet sumptuous aesthetic, wedding supplier secrets and real weddings.
Best LGBTQ+ Wedding Blog
While still underrepresented in the wedding industry, the increase in blogs dedicated to LGBTQ+ and gay weddings is encouraging. Equally Wed is an international wedding blog and online magazine that connects inclusive wedding vendors with those in search of the wedding that suits their unique relationship in the perfect way. Full to the brim with content, you’re sure to find the inspiration you’re after - whether that’s the best way to propose, avoiding gender roles within your relationship or simply admiring the real weddings of others.
Secret Wedding Blog:
Best Multicultural & Interfaith Wedding Blog
Multicultural and interfaith weddings are increasingly becoming commonplace within the UK and across the globe, yet founder of Raj struggled to find inspiration that was inclusive of her own interfaith relationship upon her engagement. The Secret Wedding Blog was born, to cater for multicultural, fusion and interfaith weddings, to inspire weddings that truly celebrate unison. The blog also tackles difficult issues, from dating at the beginning an interfaith relationship, to how to broach the subject with parents and family that may be apprehensive.
