disability

At Offbeat Wed, we know that disabilities aren’t always visible, and that while some of us might be getting married in a wheelchair or walking down the aisle with a cane, others of us are dealing with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia, or other invisible challenges like panic disorders, being neurodivergent, or having social anxiety conditions. Whatever your abilities, we want to help you have a wonderful wedding!

Books, love, and a lot of DIY at this queer wedding

I knew from the beginning that it was important to me, as a bisexual woman and someone with scoliosis, that I felt beautiful and myself on my wedding day. I dressed like the queer elf queen of my dreams.

At our reception, we had thrifted board games available for people who didn’t want to dance, and some of our friends played Trivial Pursuit all night!
