~Old “bridal bias” habits die hard and the home stretch will require that wedding professionals, writers, editors and publishers update their language – spoken and printed – to be inclusive of “brides and grooms” rather than just “brides.”~

Curious about my New Year's Resolution for 2016? I'll be tackling #BridalBias and encouraging wedding pros and "bridal show" producers to re-think their language. Do you have a re-branding story to share Please do! #BridalReBrand

"My response to this is that we must recognize the pull of assimilation while also asking the wedding industry to take note. With more heterosexual couples following our lead and rejecting ill-fitting traditions and threadbare, overly gendered routines and roles in favor of more personalized rituals, we all have an opportunity to rework the ways in which we think about wedding celebrations and marriage rituals for modern couples."
Being excluded from the legal and commercial marriage institution freed us to make our weddings our own.

Proud to have my essay included on Random House's Books for Better Living blog!
Someone recently asked me how I feel about "redefining marriage." It was a loaded question, he admitted, implying that he was showing his hand as someone who does not support marriage equality. Had we talked longer, I might have grabbed a copy of a book I wrote with photographer Thea Dodds, called The New Art of Capturing Love, to show to him.
