Happy Chinese New Year!
Last year was the year of the horse in the Chinese zodiac calendar and so it seemed only fitting to share some horse themed wedding day inspiration and ideas for adding a little equestrian elegance to your big day.
This year is the year of the goat/sheep in the Chinese zodiac calendar, so instead of focusing on an animal theme, today is all about drawing inspiration from Chinese culture.
If you got engaged in Hong Kong, or the culture holds a special place in your heart, or if you’d like to add hints of your own Chinese heritage to your wedding day, then feast your peepers over this display of pretty patterned prints, Chinese lanterns, paper parasols, paper cranes, paper flowers and origami, Chinese fortune cookie favours and elegant tea ceremonies!
Add dashes of red to symbolise love, joy and prosperity or the Chinese happiness symbol, which represents the union of a husband and wife together with their families.
Just before Christmas we took a walk down memory lane together and had a look at the features that have been the most popular on the blog this year and so for this week’s Friday Five I wanted to share the real weddings that have proven to be the most popular with you the lovely readers during 2014.
These fabulous real weddings have been viewed more times than anything of the other weddings on the blog throughout 2014, so now is your chance to be inspired by these popular posts again or if you missed them the first time around here’s your opportunity to swoon at this destination wedding pretty for the first time!

One of the most difficult decisions for destination brides and grooms can be where in the world to get married. With so many wonderful wedding locations across the globe, choosing just one (and the right one!) is sometimes a challenge.
Lisa and Alex (also known as 2People1Life) took the life changing decision to wed their way around the world in order to sample international weddings in a quest to find their favourite spot to tie the knot. It all started in Didsbury in the UK (shown in the photograph above) where they said “I Do” for the first time. As they made their way from one country to the next they have shared their incredible journey through their blog and I have had the pleasure of featuring some of their wanderlust weddings along the way too.
At the end of last year Lisa and Alex shared a roundup of all of their nuptials to date…all 61 of them! If you missed the feature, take a look at part one and part two to get an overview of their adventure. From Hawaii to South Africa, from Tahiti to Ireland, each country they encounter brings a new wedding and a fantastic cultural experience.
So to see the year out, Lisa and Alex are kindly back again with not only the weddings that they have enjoyed throughout 2014 but also with a little recap of the highs and lows that 2014 brought to them and what got them through the challenging times. Over to Lisa and Alex…..
This week I have had the pleasure of sharing the blog with some of the loveliest ladies of the wedding blogging community as they kindly agreed to share their favourite weddings that have been featured on their own blogs throughout the year.
Be sure to take a peek at part one and part two of the Wedding Bloggers Favourite Weddings of 2014 series if you missed them as the darling days that these wonderful wedding bloggers have shared are bursting with brilliant wedding ideas and more wedding pretty than your peepers will have ever seen before!
So without further ado, here’s the final roundup of weddings from around the world. Prepare to be inspired…
Sonia – Editor of Want That Wedding
Yesterday the blog was in the expert hands of fellow wedding bloggers, as they kindly shared some of their most-loved weddings that have been featured on their own blogs throughout the last year in a wedding bloggers favourite weddings of 2014 feature!
There were weddings that had truly stolen their wedding blogger hearts, receptions that simply stood out due to incredible decor and details and ceremonies in wow-factor locations, and since there was so much wedding pretty to share, one blog post just wasn’t enough.
So we are back today with more wonderful weddings from wedding bloggers from all over the globe in part two of the best weddings to rock the wedding blogging world in 2014!
Eleni – Editor of Love4Wed
On Friday I shared the most popular You Mean The World To Me blog posts of 2014. These were the pages most frequently visited by you, the lovely readers, throughout the last year – your favourite features.
This led me to thinking about my favourite features that I have shared and about all of the much-loved weddings that have been showcased on the blog. With all honesty, every wedding that is published is a true favourite. Bloggers accept real wedding submissions that they fall in love with otherwise we wouldn’t feel confident that you, our readers, would love them too!
However, there are always a few fabulous destination weddings that seem to linger in my mind for just a little longer. Maybe it’s a wedding with a wonderful love story behind it, possibly the décor or DIY efforts blow me away or sometimes it is a downright delightful destination wedding location that instantly has me longing to visit that corner of the globe, and sometimes a wedding has all of these amazing attributes and it’s impossible not to become instantly obsessed.
So I called upon some of the lovely ladies that I have had the pleasure of becoming friends with online through the wedding blogging community and asked them to let us in on their favourite weddings that had been featured on their own blogs throughout the year and to reveal why!
Over the next few days, prepare to be inspired by a plethora of wedding pretty as the top wedding bloggers from around the world bring you their perfect picks! Here we go….
