We'll talk more about vendors next week, but in the meantime — yay, CNN! The article, titled “Brides buck tradition and ditch the white dress” won't be breaking news for most Offbeat Bride readers … but it's still nice to see the mainstream media take notice of nontraditional wedding trends.
So go read the article, but promise me you won't bother with the comments. Never, ever read with the comments on mainstream media articles about weird weddings. They always suck. That said, it's funny to see commenters talking about how, based on Ariel's wedding dress, her marriage is doomed. The article never mentions the fact that Ariel's wedding was way back in 2004, so commenters don't know that she celebrated her sixth anniversary this summer. HA!
