PART 1. // 10 OF OUR FAVORITE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS TO FOLLOW FOR WEDDING INSPO
A long time favorite blog of ours wayyyy before Instagram was even a thing! We've been following style me pretty since 2011-ish and we gotta be honest, scoping them out on Instagram is one of the key ways we get inspired for weddings. Their profile is FIRE and they are really at the forefront of the wedding trends. They post multiple times a day and they link out to various different businesses as well as to their articles on the blog which is perfect in the case that we really want to go heavy on the inspo stalking. The feel of the page is an elegant mix of bohemian, vintage and classic wedding looks and if that is your cup of tea then we definitely suggest giving this page a follow.
2. ELYSIA ROOT CAKES
Elysia Root Cakes made our Instagram stalk-worthy list not only because we've actually met her and have worked with her before, but because she's like seriously good at making cakes. We've seen her at vendor shows and at weddings and her cakes are always on point. We have mad respect for her hustle as we've been able to watch her company grow from just Elysia baking the cakes to a whole team and seeing the progress of her business via Instagram is pretty awesome. She designs all sorts of cakes, but her style is really bespoke and we are all about that! The few examples that we have on this post don't really do any justice her actual work. You should just see it on her Instagram yourself or catch her at any of the vendor shows she is at!
We are pretty over the top type people and we respect companies that show us up on how EXTRAAAA event design can be. Revelry does just that. Revelry Event Design are no joke. This company is a force to be reckoned with and only the best of the best use them. We are not gonna lie.... We're hella jelly of them. We want to be them. We are amazed by them. They are a company that we respect soooo sooo much because honestly, how can you not! Do you want to be like blown away by design? Follow this page, you will not be dissapointed.
Ruffled blog is primarily a place to go to see super stylized and artfully done wedding photoshoots. The blog is super successful and we've actually had honor of being featured on the Ruffled Blog a couple of times! We actually owe them a BIG THANK YOU for being a platform that helped us gain initial exposure in the Chicago wedding industry! The blog really feeds to our inner artsy and bespoke style that we started with in the wedding industry. On their Instagram profile you'll see a mix of vintage, boho, and rustic looks. The shoots are quirky and moody and have a sense of wanderlust. You'll get tons of wedding inspiration.. and possibly vacation ideas as well! Why not have a bit of both!
WARNING: This Instagram profile will make you want to fall in love, travel to far away places to get married, decorate a tree full of Husky decorations, eat dainty sweets, and may set unrealistic goals for your future wedding... We love this profile anyways! Wedding Chicks is a beautifully curated Instagram profile that will send you down a rabbit hole of photoshoots and blog posts. We just love having this Instagram show up in our feed because all of their posts are just SOO DAMN GOOD! We know that this account sets the expectations of weddings so unrealistically high, but we can't help but indulge in scrolling through their profile anyways! They link out to the vendors or products used in the pictures which always helps in case you're ready to throw down some money to get that #instalook.
