Wedding fashions, however, did not move so drastically and were sometimes behind the times when compared to streetwear. Wedding traditions, on the other hand, were surprisingly recognizable. Let’s examine Edwardian wedding fashion and traditions.…Continue

There's this clever trick that my son's teachers have incorporated into their classrooms. They all refer to the class as "friends." Not as "students," or "kids" or even "children." Friends.
