We were excited to help our friends at Love Toast with their write up on how to throw an age appropriate wedding.
“Women are getting married later these days and many are struggling to plan the wedding that fits who they are today, not decades ago when they rehearsed their dream wedding with Barbie and Elmo. The big day is about the couple, so there are no rules that need to be followed, but if castles and carriages are no longer the vision, here are some tips to help throw an age appropriate wedding.
Let go of traditions: The beauty of being older is that you are more comfortable in your own skin and much more confident when it comes to speaking up.

Invite only those that mean the most to you.”
