It’s time for our favorite round-up of the year — the most popular real weddings featured on Green Wedding Shoes in 2021! We travel from the desert to backyards, from rooftops to national parks, from South Africa to the middle of Texas. There are stunning details and simple moments, trending fashions and the fashions that started the trends.
These are the weddings that were viewed the most, liked the most on social and had the most visits by the GWS readers. And so, without further ado, we present YOUR favorite real weddings of the year!
From the mirrored venue to the bride’s sparkly booties, this whole wedding plays out like a disco ball in the desert! And speaking of disco — the surprise dance party that happened down the aisle was a TikTok fave!
(PS: You’re following us on TikTok, riiiight?!)
The pure JOY of this elopement is alive and real! We love how they were unapologetically themselves from the details to the fashion. The theme of the day was adventure and to them, nothing was more adventurous than eloping cliffside!
Imagine rolling up to one of Yosemite’s most popular scenic locations…and it’s totally empty. Talk about magic! This dreamy elopement was as private and stunning as can be.
Golden hour, thousands of twinkling lights, and all the magical desert vibes. Don’t even get us started on her dress! Everything together added up to the definition of modern bohemian.
These two planned a backyard wedding complete with livestreaming at the top of the year. His parents’ sudden illness made them realize that they wanted to waste no time in getting married and the resulting day was full of beauty and love.
A moment of silence for the DRESS. Inspired by Kiera Knightley’s iconic green dress in Atonement, the ethereal look was a showstopper among stunning scenery and decor.
Their wedding was the perfect example of what happens when you blend laid-back bohemian details with fun and funky disco-inspired decor. Plus, how much do you love that jumpsuit?
Can you feel the FUN in these colors? The bride’s friend designed custom bridesmaid dresses that popped like bubblegum amongst the tropical-desert setting. And don’t miss the fun disco ball decor at the reception!
Yes, she carried a bouquet of roses but no, they weren’t red! This was a Bachelor Nation wedding full of dreamy details, so much joy, and a few recognizable guests.
Following suit to last year’s most popular wedding, our number one wedding this year was paired down and utterly magical in its simplicity. No big receptions, no fancy ceremonies, and only one treasured guest — the couple’s dog! This fashionable city elopement kicked off some of 2021’s most popular trends on GWS, from mini wedding dresses to bridal sunnies. It’s proof that it doesn’t take much to make a splash!
Honorable Mention: These Iceland Wedding Photos at an Active Volcano are UNREAL
Technically not an actual wedding ceremony, but we just HAD to include this one as an honorable mention! When the pandemic changed their destination wedding plans, these two pivoted for a wedding at home. But a chance to travel to Iceland — and finding their photographer friend was visiting at the same time — turned into wedding photos at the base of an active volcano! A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that made for some truly incredible memories.
