The initiator  of this alternative was the performance artist Gabrielle Penabaz; in 2000, she decided to organize a wedding party for herself  after a breakup.

She  chose a location, flowers, the  ring, the wedding dress and wrote thoughtful vows.

She even wore “something borrowed, something blue” during that symbolic event – a wedding without a  groom.

Since then a lot of people chose sologamy.
