Inspiration to Design Your Wedding & Decorate Your Life

I do love all the different wedding publications out there like INSIDE WEDDINGS, The Bride & Bloom and Grace Ormond Wedding Style for wedding decor inspiration, but often, a great deal of my inspiration comes from other sources like home decor and furniture stores and magazines.

Unusual you say? Not so much!!! Because so many weddings are taking their receptions to new heights in making guests feel comfortable, brides & grooms, along with their event planners & designers are creating temporary "living" spaces for their weddings that are reflections and miniature versions of the couples living spaces or ideal living lifestyle.
So what better places to turn to for ideas than some of these fabulous stores, decor companies and magazines to inspire you in designing your stylish wedding and current home or the one to come.
Here are some of my latest favorites and I believe in sharing the Love:) The resources range from from very very high end to inexpensive (you have to dig to find the diamonds) but proves that a great style can be acheived at any budget:). ENJOY and hope this gives YOU some great inspiration as well!
