We’re dedicating today and tomorrow entirely to all of our favorite wedding dresses, bouquets, cakes, decor, and paper goods from 2013. Earlier we shared our fave wedding dresses, and now it’s time to swoon over the florals! This year bouquets got a little bigger and little more unique with the addition of berries, feathers, and long vines, but overall continued to stay just as beautiful as they always have been. We did see more attention on the ribbon and embellishments used to hold the bouquet together though. Sequins, gold studs, lace, and personalized pendants representing loved ones no longer here made these bouquets stand out that much more. Take a look!
And just like that, it’s the last week of 2013, eeeep! Don’t mind us if we seem a little emotional. It’s been such a fabulous year in weddings, parties, inspiration shoots, and DIY’s. So before we get ready for all of the beauty to come in 2014, let us reminisce over all the lace, ombre (it was kind of the year for this trend, right?), sequin, tulle, and handmade dresses that graced our blog these past twelve months. 2014 brides, consider this your handy little wedding dress guide to keep in your pocket aka Pinterest board, for inspiration!

Tear, our Amanda’s wedding was by far our favorite wedding of the year!
Sigh… beautiful brides, aren’t they? Y’all continue to amaze us every day. There are so many cuts and styles, and the inspiration for wedding dresses is seriously endless. If you want to continue swooning over pretty dresses, make sure to pop over to our Pinterest board!
Sure, it’s not even Christmas yet. But if you are smart, you’re probably already kind of secretly planning for NYE too. The ladies of Beijos Events put together this all out glitz-fest to share some inspiration for the best night of the year with all of you.
Gold, confetti, stilettos… plus an amazing giveaway. One lucky winner is going to be sent a party box ASAP so they can host their own glitzy New Year’s Eve party too! And it’s an insta-contest peeps, so pick up your phone and enter today only.
Um, YES! They held the party at Jacqueline’s house (remember her wedding from earlier this year?!) in Laguna Beach. A house party is such an ideal New Year’s Eve, isn’t it?
Can we agree that it’s impossible to have too much gold on New Year’s Eve?
We all *want* to make good on our resolutions every year. Maybe if you declare them at the NYE party you’re more likely to keep them? Plus those official cards make a perfect party game!
Ooh, the invites are perfect! And those cute ban.do headbands are kind of a must. Last day to order them is Sunday, so hop to it!
How cute are the Beijos ladies!?
Is it all too much? No way! That’s what New Year’s Eve is for, if you ask us. Pile it on, glam it up, make it sparkle. New Year’s Day is for recuperation. See loads more images in the gallery today too. And don’t forget to enter the Instagram contest where you could win a party box to throw this party yourself!
