Yup, this Sunday is the last Lovesick Expo for the year. (Sad face emoticon.) But cheer up, buttercups! Denver is going to kick all sorts of ass. Let's talk about the Offbeat Bride staff who'll be there, and find out who's going to party with us.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of Site News posts.
Listen up! Here are announcements and newsy bits about Offbeat Bride.
The Offbeat Bride Tribe is our most complex website, and the sad news is that given this complexity (and the fact that we want my developer Kellbot to actually have a weekend, after working straight for 20 hours) the Tribe will be offline until Monday, September 9th. In sympathy, we've opened this Tribesmaid withdrawals open thread. Let's drown our sorrows together, ask your questions, and give each other advice… Together, we'll make it to Monday!
Ali & Emily's 2010 fairytale wedding in the woods recently got some attention on Pinterest and Facebook, with several longtime readers saying it resonated with them more than any other wedding we've featured.
One commenter suggested we do a follow-up "where are they now?" post with the couple and you know what? "Where are they now" posts are actually a new feature I've been wanting to start doing — where we follow up with your favorite Offbeat Bride couples to see how their first few years of marriage have treated them. I've actually already been in touch with a few (Andy & Jeff, anyone?), but I'm wondering: which of our weddings from years past do you wish we'd follow up on?
Attention 2014 couples! You may remember our announcement a couple months back, but for those of you who don't know, we've teamed up with The Lovesick Expo to feature an elite array of local talent and unique wedding ideas appealing to indie-minded couples. Lovesick Expos are amazing — guy-friendly, same-sex-friendly and actually really fucking fun. (How fun? Read this: I went to an alt-wedding expo, and lived to tell the tale.)
Today we're finally ready to announce all the dates and cities for the 2014 Lovesick Expos! Are we going to mingle with you (…or work with you?) at any one of these sweet-ass events?
You guys, we all know I'm a sucker for reader photos of folks with my book, but this one has extra special meaning for me because Emily, the bride pictured, explained: "I've been taking your advice since the Lotus Magazine days. My wedding planning wouldn't have been nearly as fun without you."
This week we decided to move our real honeymoon profiles over to Offbeat Home. It's also the week that the Chicago Tribune featured an interview with me about non-traditional honeymoons.
