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.


MadLibs with offbeat wedding shoes: Let's imagine what weddings go with these shoes…

I'm just going to grab some shoe styles and then imagine what type of Offbeat Bride wedding might go with them. I'll use descriptors from our enormous tag archive… it's sort of like Offbeat Bride MadLibs, but with shoes!


This eco-friendly wedding channels music festival love

Will and Heather turned their backyard in upstate New York into a mini music festival for their eco-friendly wedding last September.

Pretty much every imaginable element of this wedding was DIY — the dinnerware was recyclable bamboo, the food included locally grown organic veggies (with vegan options), even the bride's kickass dress and veil were DIY. That veil — my stars, I want one. And I want a castle to go with it.

I mean, you have got to see the cake! Sign me up for a slice of that gorgeousness, please and thank you.
