Wedding planning for introverts with no local friends or family

If you're an introvert who feels like you don't have any friends, wondering how are you're supposed to navigate all those "friend" events like bachelorette parties and bridal showers… Just know that you're not as alone as you feel. I went through the same thing, and it was incredibly painful. This is my story, and what I learned from it.

Offbeat plus-size wedding dresses for your 2021 wedding

If you're getting married in 2021, there's a decent chance that you actually wanted to get married last year, and had to delay. You may have already picked your dress out, or you may be on the hunt for the perfect plus-size wedding dress from a dressmaker who really gets inclusive sizing. So for all of us scrambling to get married after the shitshow that was 2020, I'm rounding up some of the best plus-size wedding dresses I've seen so far this year. And because this is Offbeat Bride, you'll find lots of bold colors and design elements like separates, embroidery, high-low hems, gothic vibes, and more!

I am so excited to be getting married next June, and being a person who loves to plan thoroughly and early, my plans are well underway.
