Wedding Planning at Work? The Lunch-Break Links Brides-to-Be Need to See

Wedding Style & Decor

You'd never plan your wedding at work (cough, cough) — but your lunch break is a whole other story! For your #WeddingWednesday lunchtime, we rounded up gorgeous real weddings, pretty style details, and helpful tips from across the web. Our favorite recent wedding blogs have one of two things in common: Parents and ideas for totally tiny nuptials! From glamourous must-haves for mothers of the bride (and groom) to a heartwarming essay about watching a parent re-marry, take a peek at the best wedding blogs:

With so much focus on the role and responsibilities of parents at a wedding, it's refreshing to hear a tale from the other side — that of a daughter helping her mom plan her second wedding! This essay is heartfelt and genuine, a must-read. —POPSUGAR

Having said that, it's easy to get excited about all the ways a mom can jazz it up for her son or daughter's wedding! These five essentials are gorgeous and glam and will feel totally special. —Brides

This stunning beach real wedding is chock-full of handmade details by the bride's family, including a cupcake display that her grandfather crafted from a chopped-down tree! —Ruffled

Not only is this desert real wedding breathtaking, it's also deeply personal. The groom's mother painted the ketubah, a Jewish marriage contract. We absolutely love this combination of tradition and family. —100 Layer Cake

This real wedding in the Colorado Rockies is rustic, earthy, and intimate — it was attended by a handful of close friends and family, all of whom stood during the ceremony. —Green Wedding Shoes

On the opposite end of the spectrum is this grand, fairytale-style wedding at a French chateau. The bride and her father ditched tradition to walk down the aisle to Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'"! —Brides
