I think many brides when they first get engaged - hell, some of us don't wait until we're engaged or even have a boyfriend - pour through wedding magazines. Looking through the pictures dreaming of our special day.
And with the Internets and blogs, there are even more pictures to sigh over.
I stopped looking at magazines about a month or so into our engagement. But I've still been soaking up the blogs. (Some of my favorites: Manolo for the Brides, snippet & ink, A Practical Wedding, The Bride's Cafe, Southern Weddings. And that's just a small sample.)
Except my interest in all the pretty pictures has waned quite a bit lately. I think it's because I'm starting to have such a clear picture of our wedding, and these weddings online - though beautiful - are not mine.
I'm less interested in others weddings. And more interested in my own. As it should be. Though I will still look through all the pictures. Because they are so pretty. And they always look so happy.
