A last minute June wedding is still possible, but it’s definitely time to make plans for the big day. From engagement to the “I Do,” there’re heaps of online websites like Brides.com for inspiration. Their cool iPad app is a must have. Download is free but you have to subscribe to their digital magazine. Well worth it. Another new app available on the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch is BRIDES Wedding Genius to help with all the planning details.

Perhaps only a civil ceremony or church wedding will do. Whatever your personal esthetic, venues options are endless. Want a lavish blowout or simple, homespun intimacy?  Elegant vintage or culturally historic? A castle, city loft, garden tent at home? Perhaps only a waterfall, beach, moor, barn or pasture will satisfy. For one of our baby boomer team, it was a ledge jutting out over the Grand Canyon! The choices are only limited by your imagination. Here are some of our favorites for a memorable day. We’d love to hear about yours.
