Unplugged Weddings

Not so long ago, wedding attendants needed to make sure they had one thing on hand, tissues. Nowadays, your great Aunt Mable and Uncle George are armed with iPhones and flip-cams. But, are their digital keepsakes creating a distraction? Joining us to discuss the unplugged wedding trend is Ariel Meadow Stallings, author of “Offbeat Bride: Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides”. She is also the founder and publisher of the Offbeat Bride website.



Author of Offbeat Bride (Seal Press; 2007, 2009, 2019) and the forthcoming Shitshow After-Party (Seal Press, 2020), Ariel Meadow Stallings likes to poke at the soft places of overlap between culture, identity, relationships, and personal development.
