It's about me becoming me: Why I'm changing my first AND last name after marriage

Did I want to keep having the same tiresome, negative conversation with every new person that I meet? Not really. Is changing my entire name going to be incredibly inconvenient? Most certainly, in terms of process, costs, and social confusion. Is my happiness worth the inconvenience? When I asked myself that question, the answer was a resounding YES. Additionally, I now have no problem taking my partner's (delightful) last name when I will also be taking my own first name, on my own terms.


"I looked like a princette" My experience as a non-binary bridesmate

My best friend got married recently, which was exciting and amazing. I was in her bridal party, which was also exciting and amazing. The only issue was that I’m non-binary — that is, I’m transgender and not a man or a woman. I know that many other trans, especially non-binary, people find themselves pressured to present in a way that makes them feel awful at weddings. Through my experience I think I really learned a lesson about presentation and how much small details and accessories make you feel as a non-binary bridesmate.

Don't miss the handmade skirt that made us swoon, the amazing rustic decor, beautifully chosen and customized Jewish traditions, and so so so much love in every photo.


You'll fall so hard for Nicole & Asher's free expression, red dress, totally non-conforming wedding

The theme to this wedding was "freedom of expression." These two had to overcome many obstacles from society in regards to orientations, identities, and professions. Freedom to express themselves was the top priority. You'll definitely want to see the red dress, awesomely dapper suit, 1000 cranes at the BBQ reception, and super personalized and intimate touches everywhere.
