5 inspired wedding ideas I stole from Offbeat Bride

I don't know if you've noticed, but we have a special tag called Steal This Idea! Which means, clearly, we love offering up great wedding ideas for you to take, run with, and make your own. But, apart from noticing them in real wedding profiles, we never really get to know how many of you actually DO steal those ideas.

That's why it was so awesome to read this "thank you" note from Australian Tribesmaid Jass

From the duct tape to muglies: all the little ways Offbeat Bride shaped my wedding

"I am very very very happy that I am not getting married pre-Offbeat Bride. I looked at a bridal magazine today and, instead of it intimidating me or making me feel bad about my wedding choices, it looked boring and dated. Where are the coloured dress options? Where are the rocking grooms? Where are the excellent budget options for the recession bride? Where are the wicked cool flower alternatives? They aren't there."

Celebrating the bridal body as a canvas of expression

My favorite thing about Offbeat Bride is that it promotes a positive attitude about body image by representing ALL shapes, heights, weights, and shoe sizes. You celebrate the body without focusing on it alone, but instead, treat it as a canvas of expression, a place to grow babies, a physical means of connecting with your loved ones, etc.
