That's what Sara, at 2000 Dollar Wedding, did.
And Jamie, at a Desert Fete, did.
And East Side Bride.
And lots of other amazing folks that I don't know about, but definitely would like to...
And apparently, that is the secret to success in blogging and in life.
Now it might seem over-reaching (audacious, even!) to compare planning a wedding to overcoming racism or running a country, but I contend it's equally important, in its own quotidian way.
In the way that New Year's Day sets the tone for the year ahead, the wedding establishes the tone of our lives together. The reception is the couple's first act of hospitality for their community together - the community that has supported them to this point, and will continue to support them.
So when we're setting that tone, shouldn't we do audacious things, things that "can't" be done... like
- serving vegetarian food,
- or having a wedding brunch,
- or a pinata,
- or a wedding hike,
- or a wearing a non-white wedding dress,
- or pants,
- or... the sky's the limit!
(In my case, it's #1, and hopefully #3 & #4, as well as getting married on the beach!)
