OK, let's be real: Creative Loafing is usually not in the business of planning weddings. You know it, and I know it.
But we are in the business of celebrating the nontraditional. We also love to support independently owned businesses. And certainly, we're always up for trying out new stuff — so here goes.
This week, we offer up a smattering of stories designed to inspire engaged couples as they plan for their big day. Specifically, we target local brides and grooms who don't want those cookie-cutter DIY wedding details that have been pinned a thousand times on Pinterest. That's not to say you won't find these ideas online somewhere, though. Our intent is to help you offer a taste of Charlotte at your own ceremony — CL-style.
And there's more where that came from. Over the next eight weeks, check back for a special UnBridaled section, featuring more How-Tos, Don't-You-Dares and other notes of inspiration as you plan your upcoming nuptials.
With my congratulations, let me also say, welcome to the most stressful planning period of your life.
