Wedding Inspiration Websites

Since becoming an intern with Something to Celebrate I have started looking at fun and inspirational wedding websites. Of course Martha Stewart is one of the first places I looked. But, being a visual person I tended to look more at sites with mostly photographs that then lead to the article, similar to Pinterest.

The first one, weddinggawker, I discovered because of foodgawker, a food photography website. Weddinggawker was launched in 2010, the third of four user-submitted photo gallery websites. It can be searchable through different categories like bride, flowers, jewelry, ect. All four gawker sites also have been created into iPhone applications! Here are some photos of the site.
