VegNews 2011 Resource Guide to Vegan Weddings

This year’s couples share their wedding resources to help you get hitched without any hitches.

Our 11th celebration of extraordinary vegan weddings brings something to the table for everyone. Our couples got hitched in a myriad of ways from multicultural celebrations and far-flung destinations to simple receptions surrounded by loved ones—and everything in between. Do-it-yourself was the name of the game this year, but by no means did that translate to cutting corners. Using their voices, paintbrushes, kitchen skills, and fancy footwork, these creative couples created weddings that not only had deep personal significance, but also knocked our editorial socks off. Here, the couples share their wedding resources to help you get hitched without any hitches.
