What an awesome 2012 we have had! I want to thank all the lovely Love Wed Bliss readers who supported us this year and made our little blog all the more worthwhile! We HEART you to bits!! And now for our last feature post for 2012..

Let me start by saying that one of the best things about my job at Love Wed Bliss is browsing through the amazing line up of real weddings submitted to us every week. Whilst each and every wedding is special in it’s own right, every so often we receive one that really captures our hearts – either for it’s unique style or breathtaking loveliness – and it’s these darling affairs, we especially love to showcase on LWB. So, in tribute to our wonderful LWB readers, we decided to showcase of YOUR Favorite Weddings for 2012!  This is a round up of all the pretty posts which inspired your comments and prompted you to share, like and tweet about their loveliness to all your friends. 

But before we say goodbye to 2012, we can’t go without recognizing the fabulous talents of the wedding photographers from around the world who feature their amazing work here on LWB. A HUGE thank you to these incredible artists and the beautiful couples who shared their special memories with us – we are so very honored!  

Lastly, if you would like to see your wedding showcased on Love Wed Bliss next year – we are always on the lookout for stylish and unique affairs –  just send us an email at submit{at}lovewedbliss{dot}com, we would love to hear from you!

Save The Dates Postcards

Minted have released their first-ever Save-The-Date Postcards!!  These adorable postcards give couples lots of fun options for deciding what they want to appear on the back of their invite – such as detailed text or perhaps another photo. Plus, they’re printed on thick, luscious stock card which is the quality we have come to expect from Minted.

How cool is this invite! Your guests will know they’re in for one helloffa party when they receive this You in or What in their mail box.

Save The Dates Postcards

Minted give you plenty of  choices with these postcard style invites. You may like to include a photo like in this Simply See Through design or instead, go with a clean look like the Planes Trains and Automobiles design. Either way you’ll have a super classy save-the-date with enough room to include your text front and back.

And, how about this Going Postal postcard with with it’s fun take on air mail? The tilted angle of the photo gives it a whimsical look and it also has your own custom stamp which is very cool.

Spring Wedding Invitations

As well as the new save-the-date range, Minted also has a fresh Spring wedding Invitation Collection with new designs being released each week of the $500 giveaway. Here are some favorites to inspire.

Spring Wedding Invitation

Instead of a traditional ‘old school’ monogram, how about a modern approach with this fresh Initials design.

Spring Produce keeps the look sophisticated and relaxed with a cute Spring twist.

Nothing speaks of spring better than fresh green details and I love how their Simply Couture does just that!

Save The Dates Postcards

If you love the idea of using a photo on your wedding invitation but don’t want it to look too contrived, then Established is perfect for you. This elegant invite gives your picture a lovely fade with a striking monogram and font to match.

Here’s another photo design . . . this time on the brighter side. I love the rich colors and pretty frame in this Ornamental Floral wedding invitation. Which also allows you to include a photo backer if you wish. Totally pretty and totally fun!

Modern Wedding Invitation

Graphic designs are such are a ‘now’ trend in weddings and Trinity with it’s rows of triangles is contemporary as well as elegant. I love how you can also add the photo at the back to look like this . . .

I’ll have my fingers crossed for you! 

{Wedding Dress Spotlight} Collette Dinnigan Princess Diaries Collection

Australian designer Collette Dinnigan has a beautiful new bridal collection for 2012 appropriately titled the ‘Princess Diaries Collection.’  It’s a gorgeous collection combining both sophistication with understated elegance. What I love about these dresses is that although they have portray the ethereal quality of a fairy tale princess from centuries gone by, they could also equally portray a beautiful bohemian or vintage style of bride. If you’re looking for a designer wedding dress which has simple lines, soft pretty details and understated glamour, then a Princess design from Collette is the perfect gown for you.
