Offbeat Bride on CNN #In the media#blogging November 5 | Offbeat Editors Me 'n' Andreas on CNN Double big news: Offbeat Bride was on the homepage of CNN.com and we just launched our Offbeat Vendors Guide! We'll talk more about vendors next week, but in the meantime — yay, CNN! The article, titled "Brides buck tradition and ditch the white dress" won't be breaking news for most Offbeat Bride readers … but it's still nice to see the mainstream media take notice of nontraditional wedding trends. So go read the article, but promise me you won't bother with the comments. Never, ever read with the comments on mainstream media articles about weird weddings. They always suck. That said, it's funny to see commenters talking about how, based on Ariel's wedding dress, her marriage is doomed. The article never mentions the fact that Ariel's wedding was way back in 2004, so commenters don't know that she celebrated her sixth anniversary this summer. HA!

NEVER READ THE COMMENTS. 1 agrees Reply That was so exciting to be doing my normal morning news reading, and then suddenly "OMG OMG OMG It's Ariel!" Reply I can't believe the comments on that article… some people are just lost causes 2 agree Reply I love that photo and congrats on 6 years of marriage! And congrats on CNN! The comments are more flabbergasting than rage inducing for me; I just wonder if those people have taken the time to actually *think* about what they just wrote. A dress, no matter how amazing or expensive or alternative, is still just an article of clothing! 2 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
