2014, what can I say about you? You were truly wonderful. You challenged me in ways that I couldn’t imagined and allowed me to conquer dreams big and small. The 2014 journey for Bula Bride was epic. It was the year where Bula Bride established itself as the #1 resource for couples planning their Fiji destination weddings, elopements, vow renewals and honeymoons – with 215,095 visitors to the blog!

Here are some key highlights of 2014 for Bula Bride.

1. Bula Bride celebrated it’s 1st Birthday in style.

The evening showcased the best of what the Fiji wedding industry has to offer. There were 60 tourism & wedding industry folk to help celebrate. See what went down here.

 

2. Bula Bride does it’s first styled shoot.

20140511_8178-630x420While in Fiji in May, BB collaborated with some of Fiji’s finest wedding vendors to create a gorgeous outdoor boudoir shoot at Vomo Island Resort. The team couldn’t have been prouder of the result. The shoot went global being featured on various international blogs and were some of the post popular posts on the blog.

3. Bula Bride gets nominated for a AON Excellence in Fiji Tourism Award.

Thank you for your nominations. It was a total surprise and lovely to see BB amongst some wonderful vendors & suppliers servicing the Fiji Tourism Industry. Unfortunately we didn’t make the final cut, with steep competition to compete with. Better luck next year!

 

4. Bula Bride attends the QLD Brides Expo.

Bula Bride set out to bring Fiji wedding vendors to you! Planning via email can be tough, so I wanted to break down that barrier and give brides and grooms the opportunity to meet with the vendors that they will be interesting with their day, or the opportunity to meet the vendors before booking.

The expo was an amazing success and thank you to all who visited. We were overwhelmed with the amount of Bula Brides and Fiji destination wedding brides who popped over to the stand (some travelling interstate) to come say Bula and talk all things Fiji weddings. See the round up here.

Stay tuned for expo locations and dates in 2015! We are coming for you!

 

5. Bula Bride gives away the biggest prize package yet!

Everything you need to help make your Fiji wedding dreams come true! A big congratulations to the winner Sarah Griffin & partner. We can’t wait to see your day at Musket Cove in November.

 

6. Bula Bride launches the first bridal magazine dedicated to Fiji Destination Weddings!

BBMAG_OutNowBula Bride Magazine had been a dream of mine since starting the blog. I had ticked off providing an inspiration blog experience for Fiji destination brides in their planning, then it was to providing brides the experience of going to a newsagent, picking up a magazine they could relate to and get snuggly with it! It was a roller coaster experience and one where I learnt a lot about how not so easy it is to make a magazine. But the result is divine and I hope you will enjoy reading it and the many issue to come.

You can grab your copy here.

I want to personally thank YOU the readers for your endless support and love for BB. The blog was made for you, and to receive comments and emails of thanks and love – keeps me going and lets me know that the Bula Bride journey is on the right path.

I look forward to sharing more with you in 2015. To bring the best that Fiji and the destination wedding industry has to offer! There is so much planned so stay tuned!
