a practical wedding, on bridesmaids and accessories

better late than never, celebrating blog-friend Meg's first Huffington Post article, "Your Bridesmaids are not Accessories and other Truths" -- in which she lets you off the hook for any fears you're doing the bridal party thing wrong. THERE IS NO WRONG.* There is only Zuul.

[update! plus her must-read series of posts on etsy's blog:
A Wedding on Your Terms: The Stuff
A Wedding on Your Terms: The Registry ]

If you don't already read A Practical Wedding it is just *great* -- I still do.

Plus check out her new book! A Practical Wedding: Creative Ideas for Planning a Beautiful, Affordable, and Meaningful Celebration -- filled with sane sanity, which is not redundant when you're planning a wedding.

(I'm so pleased to feature it in the first ad I've ever posted on this site. We started our blogs around the same time [don't compare, APW is all grown up!] and it has been a pleasure and inspiration to watch her grow ever since.)

(and of course if you need accessories for your friends-who-are-not-accessories:)

*ok, technically there may be a wrong way, which would be to let the wedding-industrial complex make you feel like you have to buy 15 matching sets of everything or to think there's only ONE RIGHT WAY and every other way is TACKY, but we're not here to judge if that's what makes you happy, do your thing.
