My name is Alyssa. I am a 20 something born and raised in the freaking awesome city of San Diego. I have a kickass partner. His name is Tristan. We have two baby rats (Fluffer and Curly) who roam free in our 500 sq. ft. apartment in the suburbs. We are budding minimalists. And we want to get married and have a wedding representative of us.
At the creation of this blog, I was quite firmly “pre-engaged.” We were deciding what to do with Grandma’s engagement ring together, and coming up with strategies for dealing with my anti-marriage mother. And as young women are wont to do, all of this excitement had me planning my fantasy wedding in my head (and on pinterest). At the same time, I’m embracing the principles and benefits of minimalism, which is quite contradictory to this industry that demands more, bigger, better and shames those who don’t comply.
So after an unsuccessful google search for how to plan a minimalist wedding where all the results were about using clean lines and buying unadorned dresses, I decided to share my own journey of both minimalism and impending wedding planning. Hopefully there are some minimalist brides out there to chime in!
