Its not really my style to advertise other blogs. We all know my (waning) love for weddingbee (i miss the old school bees) and I have my nice little compact blog roll to the left. But compared to most bridal blogs, my roll is small. As I find new blogs I love, I add them to my roll and I would highly recommend any of those blogs to any new bride. But there is one new-to-me blog that blows me away. So much so, I am posting about it!
Emerson and Michael are having a wedding (same day as me) just because. Their love isn't recognized by our nation, but they are throwing a "kick-ass party" to celebrate. Their post "Why Get Married" should be required reading for every heterosexual couple fighting over colors, guest lists and in-laws. They have reminded me of the importance of this tradition and why after 5 years, it is important for Fi and I to recognize our love and commitment.
I know there will be those of you out there that disagree with Emerson and Michael and their lifestyle. You will disagree with me about loving their blog or accepting their union. I am not asking you for approval or for your dissent. I am just sharing with you a blog that inspires me.
As brides we often look to other blogs for inspiration about escort cards, centerpieces, favors and style. Isn't it time we start looking to each other for inspiration on life and love? I think so. And when I need that inspiration, especially as these next two months fly past me in a blur of activity and tears, I know that I will look to Emerson and Michael and remember why I'm getting married.
