Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

Offbeat Bride: Taffeta-Free Alternatives for Independent Brides - Ariel Meadow Stallings I sat in Barnes & Noble one day in the wedding section, completely overwhelmed and sickened by the tasteless commercialization of weddings.

But in my world, if you need to know something, you look for it in a book.

Thank fucking god that I came across this wonderful, delightful, amazing book that GETS IT. That understands why I don't want to drop thousands of dollars on a wedding and I want to make my own dress and want to have a bonfire.

This book is informative, is excellent at providing perspective, and is downright hysterical to boot.

If you are getting married and are alarmed at the thought of all that tulle, go buy this now, and read it with a glass of wine.
