Hello lovelies! Well its nearly the weekend, which, as those of you who are regulars will know, can only mean one thing – time for my weekly roundup of Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons. To those of you who are newly engaged and therefore new to Chic Vintage Brides  (Congratulations!! I hope you didn’t miss Monday’s post – it was a must see for anyone starting out on the wedding planning path), you are in for a bit of a treat as my weekly roundup posts are always some of the most popular, especially on Pinterest! For this, the first Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons of the New Year, I racked my brain for a fitting subject and what could possibly be a better countdown to start 2015 with, than the 5 most popular posts of 2014? But, I don’t mind telling you, there were a few surprises! None of the beautifully inspiring weddings or inspiration boards made the list, and just wait until you see the post in the number one spot!

BHLDN, with their carefully curated collections of uniquely vintage-inspired style at affordable prices, has long been a fave of mine but their 2015 collection really is something else. It is, by the way now live and definitely worth a closer look!
