You'd never plan your wedding at work (cough, cough) — but your lunch break is a whole other story! For your #WeddingWednesday lunchtime, we rounded up gorgeous real weddings, pretty style details, and helpful tips from across the web. Our favorite recent wedding blogs have one of two things in common: shocking proposals and receptions that bring the outdoors in! From a total proposal fake-out to garden party-inspired nuptials, take a peek at the best wedding blogs:

There's planning a surprise proposal, and then there's what Jack Bermeo did. Instead of kind of throwing his girlfriend off the scent, he planned an entire fake wedding as a ruse to pop the question. You have to watch the video to believe it. —POPSUGAR

We found a couple that met on Instagram, documented their relationship on Instagram, and, last weekend, shared the news of their engagement on Instagram! They're professional photographers, so needless to say, the images they shared with us of their whole story are picture-perfect. —Brides

This couple went all out for their vow renewal, with a ceremony, formalwear, and more! Our favorite part? The mini terrariums they incorporated into the centerpieces, which are one one of the best ways to make an indoor reception feel fresh out of the greenhouse. —100 Layer Cake

A laid-back, gold-tinged wedding is already out of the ordinary. Throw in succulents as the boutonnieres and slices of tree trunks as centerpieces, and it becomes downright woodsy! —Ruffled

We're always looking for ways to mix up the traditional bachelorette party structure — bar nights and dancing are fun, but why not host something totally unique? This styled bachelorette inspiration shoot features craft cocktails and a bar decked out in lush greens and flowers. —Green Wedding Shoes

We're slightly obsessed with this Southern, garden party-inspired wedding. The coupled decked out their tables with topiaries, had canopies of greenery, included actual trees in their ballroom, and sliced into a cake decorated with flowers to match the bride's dress. Talk about attention to detail! —Brides
