Oh yeah, and you want to get the hell out of generic wedding land 🙄


But Right Now You're Feeling

Karen Anne Hopkins of Bride Disrupted
  • Overwhelmed by the ridiculous amount of stuff you're expected to do (WTF!)

  • Unsure about whether you really HAVE to do it all

  • Afraid of upsetting your family if you don't include certain rituals (but, like, it's not 1980, Mom!)

  • Terrified you'll lose friends or upset people if you don't invite them

  • Exhausted at the idea of spending tens of thousands of dollars on an event that doesn't reflect who you are AT ALL


That's Because The Current Version Of Weddings Is Very One-Size-Fits-All

And I Honestly Think It's Bullshit

Especially given how unique you are.

When it comes to how we celebrate weddings today...

There seem to be unwritten “rules” declaring that there’s a certain way they should be done.

  • The first dance

  • The cake-cutting

  • The bouquet toss

And it feels like if you don’t follow this exact blueprint, then it means you’re doing it wrong… Right?

Well, there are so many reasons you’re wired to think that way.

And I’m about to show you why it’s time it changed, like, yesterday.


Feeling overwhelmed about trying to please everyone with your wedding plans?

this book is for you!

Your wedding is an opportunity to celebrate your relationship in a way that’s meaningful to you.

But sometimes it can feel more like a test for how good you are at:

  • Pulling together a fabulously-styled event

  • Navigating your way through a bunch of awkward conversations and

  • Negotiating family politics

That’s why I wrote this book.

This book is not about being unconventional for the sake of it.

It’s about taking the time to decide what’s important to you and choosing your own path...

Because there are no rules for what your wedding has to be,

And you can plan the wedding you really want to have...

Even if it looks nothing like any other wedding you’ve been to before.


Want to feel in control when it comes to your wedding?

This book is for you!

After spending five years as a wedding planner I started to question the way we celebrate them.

I researched the origins of “proper” wedding etiquette, and you know what I found out? Most of it was made up!

I thought, “WTF? This has got to change!

Now I’m on a quest to dismantle the societal pressures that go hand-in-hand with attempting to plan a wedding in today’s heavily filtered world.

My mission? To spread the word that the only opinion that matters when it comes to your wedding is your own.


think it’s about freaking time that weddings got a re-boot?

Karen Anne Hopkins of Bride Disrupted

The average cost of today's wedding is $33,000. Do you want to spend that on a wedding that wasn't at all what you wanted?

The wedding industry is going try to convince you that you need to spend a small fortune in order to have your perfect wedding.

That's just not fucking true.

Order Wedding With Intention today and join the growing list of couples who demanded a better way to celebrate their epic love story.
