Offbeat Bride: encore March 20, 2007

Back in February I had the chance to interview Seattle author Ariel Meadow Stallings about her new alt-wedding book, Offbeat Bride: Taffeta-Free Alternatives for Independent Brides. I love the book — it’s full of handy advice and unusual ideas from dozens of offbeat brides and grooms (including me and Andrew, actually) — and Ariel’s also writing a companion offbeat blog to include up-to-the-minute links and other cool stuff she spots along the way.

And today, she posted the interview she did with me about our wedding! If you’re interested in pulling off a crafty wedding and reception on the cheap (hopefully with working iPod… ahem) it seems that I have plenty to say on the subject. Thanks, Ariel!

Ariel has tons of events coming up in Vancouver, Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, too, and as she says, “These aren’t your typical in-store readings. There are hula hoops, sock puppets, and veils involved!” I’ll be at her Powells reading on June 11th — hope to see you there.
