I am not a bridezilla ordering a puffy princess dress 18 months before the wedding. I am an untraditional, “alternative” bride. When we started to look at venues, I thought many halls were too “wedding-y.” My fiance and I are planning a gathering that is meant to celebrate our love and bring our close family and friends together. It will be intimate and personal. We will be crafting our new family’s traditions.

It seems that the “wedding industry” isn’t used to this. They want us to invite hundreds of people and spend our life savings. As important as this day will be, it is indeed one (important) day that marks the beginning of our married life together.

I look forward to reading your tips and comments, too.

Best, Chloe’
