A wedding graduate is a wedding post in short essay format. It’s for those of you who have a story you want to tell about your wedding. The original idea of wedding graduate posts is that it was an essay about what you wished you’d known when you started planning—a letter to your pre-wedding self, in a sense. What’s most important is that you focus on the story you most need to tell.
