Y’all, I have to say: as I combed through our 2017 archives to pull our favorites from the year, I was amazed at the beauty and goodness of the real weddings we’ve featured in the last few months. We feel so honored that each of these couples would choose to share the details of their most precious days with us, and behind each of these photos of gorgeous dresses and breathtaking bouquets, there are funny, sweet, and thoughtful stories about why our brides made the decisions they did. If there’s a detail that catches your eye, I encourage you to click through and read more about it in the original post!
I hope these favorites from 2017 will inspire you as you plan your own wedding in the months to come!
