In 2016 we published 57 gorgeous real weddings with amazing handmade details and so to call this list the “best of” isn’t entirely true. It’s really just a compilation 25 fabulous elements from the year and it could have easily been a list of 57. I consider every real wedding published here the best of something and that’s the reason they were carefully chosen to be featured out of the hundreds of submissions we receive. I’m so very grateful to each and every photographer, vendor and bride who helped make each publication possible and who took their valuable time to submit their work to Something Turquoise. We already have an amazing list of gorgeously DIY-ed events that we’re preparing to share in 2017 and so until then I hope you enjoy this little jaunt down memory lane!
