Real Weddings

Get inspiring ideas and budget-saving tips from these fabulous, real-life weddings. From an intimate outdoor wedding to a DIY beach wedding, the brides of yesterday spilled their secrets to success, and we're spreading the love. Find out what they used for their something borrowed, and get unique ideas for wedding favors. Whether you're planning a rustic country wedding ceremony or a wedding in the city, remember to plan the day to fit the personalities and tastes of the bride and groom. See how one couple turned the city of Chicago into the backdrop of their cruise ship wedding, or how one of our editors used her color scheme (orange and green) to add warmth to her winter wedding. If a destination wedding is on the horizon for you, look how one couple organized their Cabo San Lucas wedding to fit their style. Let your color scheme guide you to the real-life wedding most inspirational for you. Brown was the rich but neutral color behind this artistic fall wedding, while red proved the perfect color for this pretty summer wedding. Or, bypass the colors and keep it classic with an elegant white wedding, like this one in upstate New York.
