Mel & Tevis' crafty vegan space wedding

This couple had some twists that threw some family members for a loop, they're secular, vegan, and genderqueer. But after embracing all of these characteristics, the pair felt like themselves which made them feel AWESOME. Don't miss the D20 glass-clinking alternative, the memorial bouquet charms, puzzle guestbook, tons of DIY projects, and the best quote about hips you'll read today… guaranteed.

Who cares who leads? Non-gendered first dance ideas for all

My brother-in-law — who has never danced himself — once told me that it is only natural in dancing that the man leads and the woman follows. Having taught many partner dance classes, from Swing to French Folk, I can tell you that that is completely and utterly untrue. Of course there is nothing wrong with the "man leads, woman follows shuffle"-type first dance, but not every wedding involves one man and one woman. And even for those who do, there are many options beyond the traditional first dance…

Marilee & Lizz aka "Sasquatch and gnome" get hitched in a nature park

This "tall and small" couple are giving us feel-good goosebumps today. We've got a gnome and Sasquatch cake, etched wood decor, a scenic park venue, and a pup in a bow tie. Just wait until you read what they did for the first time in front of their family. It's tear-jerking. But our favorite part is the funniest moment. Hint: it contains Boy Scouts and a very special merit badge…

Warrior Brides of the 21st century: No more resting in bubbles of privilege

I am a Caucasian, cisgender, homosexual woman. My fiancé is transgender. Xe was assigned-female-at-birth but identifies as genderqueer and uses the gender neutral pronouns xe/xyr/xem. No one ever uses xyr correct pronouns unless they are explicitly told to use them and even then some people flat-out refuse. So what do we do about it? I am done sitting in my bubble of privilege. I am popping my bubble, donning the outfit of a warrior bride (think chainmail veil), and taking my vocal sword into the crowd and to my wedding!

When a tuxedo-clad "gride" and "broom" get married by a self-described drag clown nun

Nicole and Melissa's Washington wedding at Nature's Connection Place is one for the books! For starters, they crafted "gride" and "broom" signs for their chairs and were wed by a bearded be-glittered member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who officiated while rocking a massive rainbow sequined headdress. There were hints of purple in everything from the couple's matching boutonnieres to the violets cascading down the side of their wedding cake.
