Rules and Information:
- Bloggers are encouraged to write about any topic related to weddings and marriages, on film and off, during the Golden Age of Hollywood.

- If we do get an ample amount of participants, I’ll be reconnecting with participants to see if there is interest in contributing to an ebook that will document this blogathon.
- There are many aspects of Hollywood weddings and marriages that are worth discussing. Where possible, try to avoid duplicate topics.
