Wedding resources

To conclude our wedding series I thought it might be a good idea to share some great resources I have come across:


One of my favourite places to find inspiration! and it's an excellent way to keep track of all the great ideas you find online. Simply pin all your finds to your board and you will easily be able to get back to them. And use the search function to find lots of other great ideas from people around the world. Here's a link to our wedding board:

I also recommend: Hostess with the Mostess - they have heaps of boards and quite a few are wedding related so have a look through the list.

And just type 'weddings' in the search box to find heaps more!


Weddings in New Zealand is a new facebook group which has just been set up to help people getting married make connections with those in the wedding industry, in New Zealand. It's a closed group so brides can speak openly and ask questions of suppliers without 'giving anything away' to friends & family - if you would like to join here's the link to request to be added:

Wedding magazines:

There are heaps to choose from at your local bookstore but don't forget all the free online magazines as well. Head over to and type 'wedding' in the search box and you will find heaps to choose from including Magnolia Rouge which is published in New Zealand - it has a beautiful images, lots of inspiration, and features weddings from around the world.

And a lovely new wedding magazine has just been launched in New Zealand - Blush. Blush Magazine is a bridal journal and bridal lifestyle magazine all rolled into one and features real wedding stories, fashion shoots, interviews with people in the industry, a men’s wear section and articles on couples from their first date to the moment they fell in love, and so much more, all laid out on gorgeous organic wood free paper.   The editors are Aleisha Liebezeit from "The Love Collective Ltd" and Renee Calder from “Renee Calder Design”.  Based in Nelson but selling New Zealand wide & overseas. Magazines can be bought direct here. And we are lucky enough to have one of their first editions to give away - check out our facebook page to find out how to enter!

Regional guides:

Here's a few regional guides which will help you connect with local suppliers in these areas:

These are just a few resources, I'm sure there are 1,000's more! Feel free to post links to other resources as a comment below.
