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.
Putting together this year's neighborhood guide has really made me appreciate how cool this city is.
