Website resource for the untraditional bride and groom

So, I came across this site http://offbeatbride.com/ while looking for 50's/60's style dresses.

OK, I have hit the motherlode! This site is PERFECT for ideas & such for those who are not into the "traditional" cookie cutter wedding (obviously me).
Lots of photos from real ceremonies and all of the usual wedding website stuff.

There are also a lot of websites focusing on conflict-free Diamond rings.

http://www.bluenile.com/ethical-sourcing

http://www.brilliantearth.com/buy-co...free-diamonds/


Check out greatergood.com also. They have a wide variety of items for sale ranging from clothing to chocolate.

If I'm ever blessed enough to get married, I hope my future husband realizes I'm going to throw a huge fair-trade wedding with Ghanaian chocolate to Ethiopian coffee

I can't I'm just seeing this now! FWIW, my brother's name is Calvin, and he calls his wife Hobbs.

This is the place for a historical bridal attire.

Since my MIL made my dress, I just look at possibilities for others.
