{The Goddess Bride}

Dear Bride-to-be:
Did you know that in ancient cultures—and continued in some societies today—the bride was heralded as a heroine and attended to like a queen? She was bathed, perfumed, painted, pierced, coiffed, bejeweled, wrapped, draped, veiled, adorned with flowers, extravagantly dressed (sometimes in multiple costumes over days- or week-long ceremonies), and she was elevated to goddess stature!

Therefore, your bridal birthright, O Beautiful Bride, is indeed the legacy of the goddess! Open your heart to that feminine heritage—breathe it in—and feel that womanly beauty through ‘n through. Allow yourself to be cared for, attended to, and deeply loved. And in the generous, open-hearted goddess tradition, give that love and attention right back to everyone you meet—like the goddess you are!

Love. Listen. Let go.
...with love from Cornelia
