In 2018 we published 46 gorgeous Real DIY 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 46. We consider every real wedding published here to be the best of something and that’s the reason they were carefully chosen to be featured out of the hundreds of submissions we receive. The entire ST Team is 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 2019 and so until then, I hope you enjoy this little jaunt down memory lane!
