Welcome to our Top Alternative Wedding blogs for 2021
Well, 2021 … what a year! We came out of lockdown and the wedding industry sprung back into life from a prolonged period of uncertainty. Smaller weddings & elopements became the trend due to restrictions on numbers. We have said a sad goodbye to some suppliers who called it a day and then let’s face it, it all got a bit crazy! We would like to give a HUGE big shout out to all the wedding suppliers who hung in there while dealing with the busiest wedding season EVER! We raise a glass to you!
And that is what our Top Alternative Wedding Blogs of 2021 is all about. We want to say thank you to all the wedding suppliers who made their couple’s dreams come true this year. You went above and beyond. Thank you for inspiring future wedding with so much creativity and general awesomeness! And most of all thank you for throwing out the window cookie cutter weddings and helping spread the word that weddings can be individual, unique and creative. You are the BEST!
So here we go … who will be crowned the Top Alternative Wedding Blog of 2021? Check out the finalists below. Voting starts in our Instagram Stories from December 27th. You can catch up on the action in our Instagram Highlights at any time. The winner will be announced on New Year’s Day.
