Me 'n' Andreas on CNN

Double big news: Offbeat Bride was on the homepage of and we just launched our Offbeat Vendors Guide!

We'll talk more about vendors next week, but in the meantime — yay, CNN! The article, titled "Brides buck tradition and ditch the white dress" won't be breaking news for most Offbeat Bride readers … but it's still nice to see the mainstream media take notice of nontraditional wedding trends.

So go read the article, but promise me you won't bother with the comments. Never, ever read with the comments on mainstream media articles about weird weddings. They always suck. That said, it's funny to see commenters talking about how, based on my wedding dress, my marriage is doomed. The article never mentions the fact that my wedding was in 2004, so commenters don't know that we celebrated our sixth anniversary this summer. HA!
