Battle cry of the Offbeat Lite

Sometimes I get the feeling that my fellow Offbeat Lites feel out of the loop on Offbeat Bride. They let themselves feel pushed aside, and unrepresented. I'm here to tell you that's not the case.


Why didn't you feature my wedding?

Sometimes we get emails from brides who've submitted their weddings, asking us what was wrong with their wedding that we didn't feature it. So maybe it's time to explain how we pick the weddings we feature…


Offbeat-er than thou

I belong to a community of brides on another site. One of the brides prides herself on her uniqueness and originality. No one has a problem with that. But she really puts down a lot of the other brides who are more traditional. She calls their weddings 'cookie cutter' — which really hurts some people's feelings! How can I tell someone to chill with their "I'm so original and different" superiority trip?
