Offbeat Bride in The Seattle Times #In the news Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Mar 17 2007) Ariel arielmstallings I'm featured in the wedding section of The Seattle Times' magazine, Gender F. You'll see Offbeat Bride mentioned in two articles, the first being about wedding dresses (where I'm featured as the DIY option alongside the traditional and couture dresses), and the second about the offbeat ways we kept our wedding costs down. And for those intrigued by my lab-rat Joriel's wedding-without-marriage, the section also features an article where Joriel and other singles-by-choice discuss their reasons for not getting married: Who is and isn't marrying, and why: Move over, marriage. When it comes to romantic commitment, you're not the only game in town. (Thanks to John Lok at The Seattle Times for the photo!)
