2014 brides, our New Year's wish is for you to savor each moment, no matter how emotional or wacky, in your wedding-planning journey. May each milestone bring you and your spouse even closer together, and may your marriage be just as beautiful as your big day.
Before the wedding countdown begins, let's take a look back at the most popular "I dos" from around the blogosphere this past year. These real-life newlyweds captivated millions of blog readers with their wedding details — check out their gorgeous photos below!
"Noel and Jason’s Christmas-themed wedding was one of our favorites from 2013. This beautifully decorated holiday wedding epitomizes rustic elegance. Instead of an overly red-and-green color palette, Noel and Jason tied in the colors sparingly, opting for hints of white and brown to tie in their rustic theme. They also utilized plenty of handcrafted details — which we love — including cowboy boots for the bridal party, a white rose and pinecone bridal bouquet, a hand-painted ceremony sign and more.
Guests were greeted with elegant centerpieces that provided a familiar scent of Christmas: pine! Evergreen swag, mason jars filled with candles and handmade wood-slice table numbers completed the look. Delicious holiday-inspired treats were served, like cinnamon pecan and chocolate cakelets. Our favorite detail: The evergreen trees that were given to guests as favors, wrapped in burlap and ready to plant immediately after the wedding.
One of our favorite parts of this wedding is how down-to-earth and in love Noel and Jason are. It’s so important to be a team while planning your wedding, focusing on the fun of planning and the excitement of marriage."
