After we postponed due to COVID, many people asked if we were going to elope or downsize, but I was just so hesitant… I didn’t want to abandon all my wedding plans and dreams. By the end of 2020, I found myself actually considering an elopement.

We don’t need one hundred tiny glass jars and a throwaway option isn’t our style. Any ideas on making our gluten-free cake alternative look fancier?

No need to guess at what’s in the recipe or eat that protein bar in their bag instead.
We were looking for a casual menu that wouldn’t break the bank. But we have all the menu issues of the modern ages: Vegans, vegetarians, hard-core meat eaters, comfort food-lovers, tomato allergy, gluten allergy, dairy allergy, nut allergy, and even a garlic allergy. Now, my wedding menu is not fancy, and this isn’t for everyone, but again I’m looking for easy, as all-encompassing as possible, and budget-friendly. Here’s what we’re serving up…
This wedding took a sharp turn when an unexpected and tragic loss occurred. But through it all, this pair planned one of the loveliest weddings we’ve seen, with sunset views, organic and beautiful masks, and an evening candle ceremony. It may have been a bittersweet day, but they made it as sweet as could be.
How do you simultaneously appease family demands for “more than just cake” while also bringing joy to all your guests with restricted diets AND adding an explosion of color to your reception tables? Oh AND providing wedding favors?! Fruit bouquets are the answer to all these woes as more, as Offbeat Bride Tribe member Moonlitfractal explains…
