JOIN US IN THE SELF-WEDDING MOVEMENT!

OUR STORY

Jeffrey is originally from Cape Town, South Africa. Bonnie is a New Yorker that grew up in Houston. We met in Los Angeles (on match.com!) in 2007. Here’s how we came to design this kit.


Our first self-wedding experience together happened soon after Bonnie’s mom passed away from cancer. Bonnie’s birthday came a few months later and needless to say she didn’t feel much like celebrating. A friend told us about her own self-wedding experience and it seemed like just the right way to honor Bonnie’s mom by looking within. We also wanted to bring healing into our community, many of whom were also going through their own significant hardships—relationships on the rocks, the economic downturn and illness. So we had a small self-wedding ceremony for all of the party guests to ignite good, positive energy. It was such a loving, powerful experience and it lifted everyone a little higher and made the path a little easier. The impact has stayed with us to this day.

Fast forward and about 2 ½ years ago we had a backyard wedding BUT with a twist. The day, the occasion was about celebration and love and we wanted our friends to feel what we were feeling. So we wrote special vows for our friends and made 120 sterling silver rings and after our ceremony was over, we married our guests to themselves. The laughter, the love, the genuine surprise in some at it being about them only, no one else was extraordinary. People who were there keep telling us even now, "I haven't taken my ring off since your wedding." "It holds so much meaning for me!", "It reminds me every day that I'm special."

We've done 3 or 4 large and small ceremonies since then and it remains so very powerful and fulfilling that we decided we wanted to keep spreading that feeling. Our dilemma was how to continue the movement so we could impact the most people. It’s taken us a while to figure out a sustainable model and here we are today. We think this is the perfect way and we look forward to growing this idea to bigger celebrations in as many places as possible.

                

WHY A SELF-WEDDING?

  1. This is a live-like-you-mean-it moment that can be celebrated alone or with others who recognize the need for the love of self. We are, after all, fabulous!
  2. Because love is contagious.
  3. Inner peace makes for more balanced citizens and more compassionate communities. Save the planet!

THE IMPACT

This is not about waiting for the “right one” to complete you. A self-wedding is about completing yourself. Loving yourself. Realizing YOU are the “right” one. The more you love yourself, the better able you are to love others. Divorce rates are high in marriage but we are sure you will be sleeping with the person you self-marry today for the rest of your life. ☺

A self-wedding is a genuinely inspirational practice that reminds you, every day after, as you wear your ring, of the simplest thing you can do to make for a happier, more content life: LOVE YOURSELF. Come on, join us!!

SELF-WEDDING IN-A-BOX

We've created the I Married Me Self-Wedding In-A-Box™ so that we can spread love beyond our own community. To yours.

Our kit gives you the tools you need to celebrate your most fabulous self. You can be single or in a relationship, you can have a self-wedding for one, for you and your besty, for a group of friends, to celebrate a birthday or special occasion, or officiate a self-wedding at your own wedding to give the gift of self-love to all of your guests.

A self-wedding is a refreshingly modern way to remind yourself of your own true gifts. Isn't it time to proclaim your awesomeness?

Our delightful package (all components will be made in Los Angeles, CA) comes complete with a hallmarked perfectly simple handcrafted super skinny sterling silver or 14K solid gold handcrafted ring designed by Jeffrey Levin

The kit also includes:  

  • Ceremony Instructions
  • 3 "Promises To Me" Vows
  • 7 Affirmation Cards (one bold reminder of your awesomeness for every day of the week).

Jeffrey has been a jewelry designer for over 30 years and he understands the potency of symbolism. It's how it makes you feel about yourself. Wear the ring to give yourself daily reminders that you are fabulous! 

WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET

Our plan is to manufacture 1,000s of I Married Me Self-Wedding In-A-Box™ kits so that as the movement grows, we'll all benefit.

In order to produce the various components, we need to order a minimum quantity for printing to keep the pricing low and make the kit affordable. We need to raise $10,000 for the first run! We know it's not thousands of kits but it's a first step and we'll get there or we'll stretch there with your help!

Buy in to the idea at the minimum perk and help us toward our goal, buy a kit, buy 100 kits. Join us in spreading self-love across the planet!

Please get the word out, make some noise and use the tools provided at the bottom of this page to push the message. You are awesome! We thank you. 

♥ Jeff & Bonnie
