Offbeatbride is created by a blogger who is also a writer and editor for a decade. And she is also a marketing manager for Microsoft. (Yes, really!) and this is what she said about herself.
1. Offbeat Tribe
I quoted this from the page: “This is the network for kick-ass, independently minded women who just happen to be getting married. You can talk, connect, and share ideas with other brides inspired by Offbeat Bride, both the book and the website.”
