Gray Matters

I Do

I don’t usually make a point of reading of reading the Love section, but I had to click on one of the latest “mini-vows” when I saw the lead photo while scrolling through Twitter.

A young woman with gray streaks whose name I recognized from The Billfold? I was on board. And the love story was inoffensive–and maybe even a little charming–which is high praise for this section of the paper.

I imagine we’re going to see more and more gray brides as younger generations’ body positivity becomes more mainstream. In my experience, Gen Z are less traditional than millennials (who seem to get married relatively young) so maybe weddings as milestones will fall out of favor too.
