The latest survey tells us that 72% of Australians support marriage equality; this is the highest that support has ever been in our country. Unfortunately, this is not a view shared by our government. The feminist me — who is so freaking grateful to the feminists who fought for the rights she now enjoys — has had enough. I have rights because of those who came before me, and it’s up to us to fight for marriage equality for those who are here now, and those who come after us.

Attention fans of Harry Potter, Princess Bride, Discworld, RPGs, shoe games, chemistry, adorableness, and all things sugar and spice: there is something in this wedding for you. Homages to books and pop culture abound in this Aussie wedding with two super cuties who are totally pro at combining their interests into a kick-ass theme.
A little goth, a little geek, and a teeny wedding for us to love. Don't miss the awesome certificate of marriage, the very meaningful handfasting cords, the Gallery Serpentine custom corset dress, and the Minuscule-themed cupcakes. Plus, the bride shares some very handy advice if you're planning on rocking a corset. Oh, and you'll love the bride's hilarious way of "proposing." It worked!
A hint of vintage glam, some German-infused elements, and some sweet family vows make this wedding lovely. But it's all the lessons learned about guest lists and second wedding drama that really hit home for a lot of us. Oh, and the bride's delicious idea to put some cotton candy into the champagne! We can't resist; we're only human!
You want fun? You've got fun with this bubbly, candy-filled wedding in Australia. The bride's chic pastel goth look is the icing on this sweet little cake nugget. A white rose ceremony, the perfect first dance for a shy couple, and some all-too-familiar corset drama make this a totally relatable and lovable wedding.
Meg and RJ planned an Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding at Gum Gully Farm, a rustic wedding venue in Melbourne, Australia, that plays host to a delightful collection of wildlife. In fact, a certain goat on the farm played a pretty central part in creating a pretty hilarious Brady Bunch-style wedding party photo!
The bride lives in black, so her dress totally had to incorporate the color. Add in her blue hair (her "something blue"), gorgeous black and white veil, their classic ride, and a tear-y groom, and you've got this gorgeous Aussie wedding with DIY details. Just wait until you see the groom at the beginning of the ceremony. Oh, and wait until you see how a five-year engagement helped them overcome a challenge.
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a vintage dress, a huge homemade Dalek (and mini flower girl Dalek!), and a wedding guide made for us to "not panic!" It's a sci-fi wedding… so say us all!
We love this bride's black, lacy dress, the couple's totally stress-avoiding attitude, cake-cutting "grr" faces, and super awesome wedding party photo picnic idea. And for any of you dealing with hassles about losing weight for the wedding, this bride's rational and kick-ass method for dealing with it is a MUST-READ.
