We live for great love stories here at Weddingbells so it’s always a treat to reflect on the most famous love-filled moments of the year.

2011 will always be remembered for one of the most buzzed about marriages in recent history, The Royal Wedding, but we felt it was also important to look back at some of the fabulous engagements that took place. We’re not talking overly-publicized reality-TV-based proposals — for our top five we’ve chosen marriages we actually think will stand the test of time. They’re also special because all of them involve brides over 30 (and one in her 40s) who seem to have finally found perfect matches. Here we look back at the romance-filled proposals and the fabulous rings that are gracing the fingers of these famous brides.

Sometimes less is more. When it comes to your wedding floral arrangements nothing says elegant simplicity better than a single bloom bouquet. This trendy floral idea is sometimes more cost-effective than a full traditional bouquet and it makes for an easy DIY project. Consider opting for single flowers for your bridesmaids’ bouquets and a composite arrangement, petals from multiple flowers glued together to make one large bloom, for your bouquet. You can even mix and match colours for a truly unique look.
