I’m happy to announce that Christy & Stuart’s Prom wedding was featured on Offbeat Bride wedding blog today! Offbeat Bride is the web’s most popular and most inclusive website catered to nontraditional wedding planning.

I’m so down with Offbeat’s vibe. I found this on their About page, and thought I’d share it with you too.

If Offbeat Bride’s ethos had to be boiled down, it would be this:

  • We celebrate and encourage couples who are trying to retain their identities through the drama and pressure of wedding planning.

  • We believe that no two weddings need to look the same, because no two couples are alike.

  • We are focused on constructive communication, and want to prove that online wedding planning communities don’t have to be snarky, bitchy places where readers decree each other tacky.

  • We believe that your wedding isn’t a contest — there’s nothing to prove except for that you love your partner.

  • We aim to be the web’s most inclusive and diverse wedding publication. We want to be the place where it’s normal to see couples who are plus-size, couples with disabilities, couples who are older, couples who aren’t white, couples who aren’tstraight, couples who are trans* or non-gender-binary, couples who aren’t rich, couples who aren’t American, and couples who are MORE than couples. (Oh, and we’re obsessed with letting people self-identify.)

  • We love really awesome photography, but we also love down-home depictions of love.

  • We don’t believe in gender essentialism (omg, girls are like THIS, and boys are like THAT) and will fight the good fight against heteronormativity until we die.

  • We support couples all along the nontraditional spectrum, from beautiful hardcore freaks & geeks all the way to what we affectionately call “Offbeat Lite.” Your wedding should be a reflection of YOU, not other people’s tastes — and that includes ours!
