Get Excited… The Wed 100 Kicks Off Today!

We’re kicking off July with a fun new series featuring top tips and outside-the-box ideas from the wedding industry’s most influential planners, photographers, designers and more — a very talented group of pros we’ve deemed the Wed 100!

Every week, we’ll bring you their most useful, inspiring outside-the-box wedding planning tips and tricks right here on our blog. (You’ll be able to find all 100 of them and their top tips in the winter 2013 issue of The Knot Weddings Magazine.)

You have to wait until Wednesday to find out who our first featured Wed 100 pro is — but trust me when I say, this California-based planner’s designs are like no one else’s — always incredibly inspiring and sophisticated.

Until then, a few of our favorite designs from her below…
