Non-Traditional Weddings

White gown and wedding cake not for you? Thinking of having your wedding in an unusual location or with a startling theme? Can’t quite get your mind around the usual wedding traditions?

I have lots of ideas for a non-traditional wedding, including eco-wedding planning, and I would be delighted to help you plan and implement yours. If you want to push traditional boundaries, I will be enthusiastic about helping you plan the wedding you want.

And sometimes the unusual requires some extra work, so remember to hire extra help early.

Non-Traditional Wedding Resources:
Offbeat Bride
A blog full of stories of offbeat weddings, DIY tips, and other fun things. She's another author trying to sell a book, but that doesn't interfere with the high quality of the blog.

A Practical Wedding
An oasis of sanity in the world of weddings.
