This site is reminiscent of a Pinterest board with a plethora of wedding style ideas.  There are wonderful pictures of the latest wedding dress fashions, groom suits and tuxedos, bouquet arrangements, bridesmaid dresses, entertainment, decor, and the latest trends in wedding day hair and make-up.   One of the most unique features of this site is the Wedding Style Category section to help you decide which category best suits you, including Classic, Romantic, Modern, Vintage, Offbeat, Beach, Cultural and Religious, Outdoor, and Rustic examples.  The ideas are represented in picture pinboards, which bring them to life in a creative way.
