iVillage: Wedding Inspiration Gallery

Wedding Inspiration - Blogger Edition

Man, this was a fun piece to write! I love wedding blogs - I even used to write for one and it was fun.

The images and words on the blogs I featured on this iVillage gallery just make me feel happy and romantic.

(Thanks to my friends Rhi, Holly and Michelle for their help in discovering some fab blogs. I got married in the internet stone age, so their help was invaluable.)

Into every home, a little kitsch must fall

I like elegant things very, very much -- perhaps more than is healthy -- but I think that every home needs little unexpected touches that makes you smile.

Diana Vreeland once said that "too much good taste can be boring."

I cannot agree more.

Why take yourself so seriously? Go ahead and have some fun!

If you don't know what kitsch is, well, I'll let Allee Willis explain:

What is your favorite piece of kitsch? C'mon, I know you love it too!

Here's mine: I love going into someone's perfectly manicured garden and finding a gnome or itty bitty flamingo hiding among the rose bushes. Always makes my day.
