Unenthused by a white wedding gown and bored by the hoopla of the Hollywood-style reception, Ariel Meadow Stallings found herself absolutely exhausted with the nuances of traditional nuptials . . . so she chose to take a walk off the beaten aisle. In this updated edition ofOffbeat Bride, Stallings humorously recounts the story of the original offbeat wedding--hers--and shares anecdotes and advice from dozens of other nontraditional couples. She also includes a chapter on budget weddings in today's weak economy, along with sidebars, tips, tricks, and planner encouragement to help you figure out your special day. What results is a combination of hilarious wedding stories and tons of helpful how-tos--a perfect mash-up of memoir and handbook. At once practical and enjoyable,Offbeat Bride validates choosing the funky, different, and offbeat over the traditional, and leads couples through the planning process--from unique ideas on how to announce their engagement all the way to answering the question, "So, how’s married life?” Stallings is the ultimate guide to the alternative wedding of your dreams, and withOffbeat Bride, she brings you a book that serves both as an encouragement and celebration of aisles less traveled.

Edmund de Waal s art speaks to his enduring fascination with the nature of objects and the attendant history of their collection and display. Confronting European and Asian traditions of intimate craftsmanship with the scale and sequence of minimalist art and music, Edmund de Waal s ensembles of porcelain vessels evoke at once the delicate measure of Agnes Martin s sublime abstract paintings and the rhythmic pulses of the music of Philip Glass and Steve Reich."
