May 8, 2017

I know a lot of Bridechilla listeners struggle with the idea of balancing their feminist beliefs and planning their wedding day with all of the wonderful details and traditions. I’m delighted to be joined by Liz Susong Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief of Catalyst Magazine (who seemed to have had a very similar wedding experience to me!).
Catalyst Magazine is the first-ever print wedding magazine with a feminist consciousness, and they regularly host events to increase diverse representation in the wedding industry like their travelling workshop {un}convention, which I recently attended in London.
In this show, we talk about the challenges of the wedding industry and encouraging inclusion for all people, minorities, gender, relationships, talking about divorce and second (and third) marriages. We talk about the path diversifying representation (so many white, blonde brides on the cover of wedding mags!?), challenging gendered roles and standing for equal rights. We also look at the cycle of stress that a lot of couples become a part of.
We’re all stressed and trying to juggle a million things, which everyone deals with in different ways. Liz shares her thoughts on being mindful, knowing your stress triggers and being present during the process (and your wedding day).
