Torrid has a new plus size wedding collection that's budget-friendly and cute as hell

Torrid is one of those brands that has been around far longer than most brands now offering plus sizes. So it feels long overdue that they'd be debuting a budget-friendly wedding collection and we're pretty psyched to see what they have on offer for US sizes 10-30. There's even a chic AF jumpsuit! Here were a few of my faves from the Torrid plus size wedding collection…

This Washington DC wedding photography superhero is capturing love stories and hearts all over

If you're planning a Washington DC wedding, we've got the inclusive, offbeat-minded wedding photographer for you. We fell hard for Erika Nizborski when we saw that she was all about equality, embracing what makes you unique, and had her own offbeat wedding (so she totally gets it!). Her documentary style will tell the whole story of your day with tear-jerking candids and little funny, meaningful moments you'd never have found otherwise. It's my favorite kind of photography style.

Tons of dazzling colored gemstone rings for every kind of couple

Diamonds may have been a girl's best friend, but we're branching out in all kinds of colorful ways these days. While it's all good if you want to snag a diamond ring, you also don't have to feel locked in to it AT ALL. One of our fave jewelry artisan partners, Metalicious, specializes in all things alternative when it comes to gemstones so I went down the rabbit hole to see what stunning sparklies we could find in colored gemstones, diamond alternatives, and even snazzy alternative metals for wedding bands.

Heart eyes for the lace, statement sleeves, and fringe of this dreamy bohemian dress collection (& a pop-up shop event in NYC!)

The last time we featured some of the fabulous wedding gowns from our partner CocoMelody, y'all went wild. Their collections of ready-to-wear and custom styles (made to fit YOU!) are colorful, diverse, super well-made, and available in extensive sizes. It's that super rare dress source that actually gets offbeat readers. Let's peek at their Bohemian Nomad Collection which is making me swoon with romance meets modern meets laid-back meets gorgeous dress bliss.
