We won’t be so bold as to say we saved the best for last, because how can one pick favorites among all the pretty wedding details here on the blog over the past few days? (You did see the 100 Layer Cake best of wedding dresses and cakes posts, yes?) But one things for sure: floral design got beyond creative this year, and these bridal bouquets prove it. There was silk ribbon and glitter. There were larger than life arrangements. There was foraged greenery and unlikely color stories. And it was all so, so good.

From gold foil to hand-lettering to splashes of watercolor, 2014 was chockfull of pretty paper. We loved seeing independent designers (including many brides!) take an event’s theme and translate it to the invite, with suites so fabulous you’ll want to pop over to the weddings themselves to see where they got their inspiration. See what we mean below…

Happy New Year, everyone!! The new year is an exciting time around the 100lc headquarters, but if we’re being honest, there’s still many a lingering 2014 moment that’s worth remembering well into 2015. This morning, our Best Of series continues with the bridal hairstyles (and their accompanying gems + floral bits) that had every gal on a pinning spree over the past 12 months. Enjoy!
