Offbeat Bride: Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides
Offbeat Bride
Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides
Paperback      ISBN: 1580053157
Unenthused by a white wedding gown and bored by the hoopla of the Hollywood style reception, Ariel Meadow Stallings found herself absolutely exhausted with the nuances of traditional nuptials. So, she chose to take a walk off the beaten aisle and embrace the nontraditional bride within. Shortly after her 2004 matrimony, Stallings began searching for other brides whose ceremonies defied age-old traditions and reflected who they are. From there, she developed the idea for a guide for the offbeat couple. Offbeat Bride validates choosing the funky, different, and offbeat over the traditional choices. This guide is filled with sidebars, tips, tricks, and planner encouragement — all taffeta-free — to help each bride figure out her special day. This updated second edition features new content, including a chapter on budget weddings in today's weak economy.
