She didn't do it to be different. Or make a statement. Or draw attention to herself.
She did it because it's a deep expression of who she is, and she didn't change herself to fit anyone else's preconceived notions of what she ought to do on her wedding day.
She rides the bus daily and has formed relationships with the friendly bus drivers. She's also committed to the environmental benefits of public transportation. Additionally, she said, "Using the bus is a nice part of my day. I get to relax while traveling to where I need to go, so why not make it part of my wedding?...Also, the bus route runs straight past the wedding venue, so it just made sense."
Hooray for a practical bride! I feel like it's so easy to lose ourselves in the pressures of wedding planning. It's easy to feel like we need to conform to our families' expectations because we love them and want them to enjoy the day. It's easy to fall prey to the subtle (and not so subtle pressures) of the Wedding Industrial Complex and societal traditions/expectations.
It's so refreshing to hear about a bride who is just being herself and making sure that her wedding day reflects who she is in "real life". Now that's something to celebrate!
