"Just admit you are 'woman-babies' who can't get enough of this childish shit"

Remember how in January, I was all "Meh, offbeat weddings are pretty well accepted as mainstream at this point"? Remember that?

Well, this year has had some tricks up its sleeve for sure, and one of those tricks is that for a whole bunch of reasons, American culture is taking a hard swing right now. The blasé tolerant attitude of "eh, who even cares — you do you" that's been around the past eight years or so is shifting, and with that shift is coming an interesting wave of hatefulness toward the offbeat…

What happens when a wedding blogger gets engaged?

Big fucking news, y'all: I'm fucking engaged! So what happens when a wedding blogger gets engaged? Let's find out together with Wedding Planning Wednesdays. We thought, however, that y'all might like to get down on the wedding planning with me! So every(-ish) Wednesday I'll be posting about what I'm thinking about, bumping up against, and searching for this week. That way, those of you on the same path can commiserate and brainstorm with me, and those of you who have been there/done that can drop some knowledge.

See you this weekend, Los Angeles and Denver (and next weekend, Bay Area!)

Only three expos left of the 2016 Lovesick Expo tour. This is the first year that I am making it to EVERY SINGLE EXPO, and my Alaska Airlines frequently flyer miles are definitely starting to stack up. New York, Philly, Boston? You were all amazing. Seattle? My hometown so of course it the best (me? biased? ho ho ho). There are only three 2015 Lovesick Expos left, and two of them are this weekend:

Saturday February 20, 2016: Los Angeles

Sunday February 21, 2016: Denver

Can't wait to party with you soon at Lovesick Expo Atlanta, LA, Denver, and SF!

Lovesick Expo Seattle happened yesterday and… holy shit, my friends. That was pretty much the best day-drunk party I've been to in years. I might be biased because it was my hometown show, but that's the thing about Lovesick: yes, it's a wedding expo, but the goal for all of us producing the event is that it basically just feels like a great fucking party. Where you, like, also get to talk to great fucking wedding vendors.

The expo is coming to Atlanta this weekend, with California and Colorado shows next month. Come party with us?
