Let's Get It On

Shop with Wanda HERE


Hello!
My name is Wanda Koski. I have been a Pure Romance consultant for 3 years now and love it!
Pure Romance is a home party company for women. We sell bath/beauty, massage and relationship enhancement products for women and men. Our parties are a fun way to learn about our sexual health, ways to help our relationships and how to feel sexy. When we feel sexy, others see us that way as well. All of our ordering is done confidentially with me and anything that needs to be ordered after the party is sent directly to you. Having a party is a great way to get all of your favorites for free or deeply discounted. I love to spoil my hostesses. I look forward to meeting you.


I will be posting on the first Tuesday of the month (starting February 2nd) offering deals, tips, and more. Please leave a comment if there is anything you want to hear about or to let me know what your favorite product is!

Buy it For a Bargain - Rivini

Martinique by Rivini
Reddit user /u/Handbanana06 contacted me to help find the above dress that had been leading her in circles jumping from blog to blog, only giving her the photo credit. Well, I managed to track down the designer and with a price range of $4,500-$6,000 (more if you don't want the bodice to be see-through) it's on the higher end of the "mid-priced" bridal gown spectrum. I managed to find the designer via an article from The Knot Wedding Magazine.

The Runway Look

Here are some low-cost alternatives to the $4,500+ dress problem. All of the dresses pictured are under $600, and there are a couple more if you visit us on Pinterest.

Voyage by Mori Lee Bridal Gown 6772

Allison Parris Sugar Coat Dress from RentTheRunway
Sizes 0 - 12
Price: $70 - $112 rental (free second size just in case!)
Also available in sizes 6&10 HERE for $625.


All of these dresses can have a lace topper and an additional petticoat added to complete the look, or you can wear them as they are. My favorites are the Sugar Coat dress and the dress from Alfred Sung.

Two Broke Brooms - An Introduction


A picture of our Engagement Rings, taken the day of our engagement

Hello, our names are Thryn and Gabe and we just got engaged this last November.  We’ve joined this website to share with you all our adventures in planning a wedding when you’re queer, non-binary, and rather short on cash.

First off, we want to offer a brief explanation as to what “non-binary” means. Gabe and I are both neither a man nor a woman; you can think of us as being “genderless.” We don’t like being referred to with “gendered” terms such as ma’am, sir or lady.  When people are talking about us in the third person and not using our names, we like folks to use they instead of he or she.  This is why, in our wedding, instead of using “Bride” or “Groom” to refer to ourselves we instead are playfully using the label “Broom.”

Our families know we are non-binary and queer which makes that part of the wedding a bit less stressful, but different family members are at different stages of accepting this about us. We’ll probably end up talking more about this and how it will probably play into our wedding in later posts.

Our wedding will be pretty non-traditional by default, not only because of our gender and orientation but because of our budget as well. Right now, the amount stands at $5,000 dollars as a maximum, though Gabe is hoping to get away with less than that. I’m a full-time student, and Gabe currently only works part time. Our families are going to help us some but they’re pretty limited financially as well.

Our wedding date is tentatively in October of 2018, so we have plenty of time to work through all the obstacles we’ll face. We’ll do it together, with love, compromise and patience (which honestly is critical no matter how traditional and financially well endowed you are).  
We hope you all will enjoy your glimpse into our adventure, it should be an exciting one no matter what!
