    Fantasy Friday ~ A Beautiful Hawaiian Wedding Filled with Bed Jumping, Lace and Joy!

    When I see Brianna and Dan all dolled on their wedding day, I can't help but picture them in wet suits. In my head, they are the epitome surf Barbie and surf Ken. Each with long, beautiful golden hair, slight figures and radiant smiles; all they're missing is a surf board. But, I'm thinking that it probably wouldn't look right with a wedding dress, right? Especially the gorgeous gown Brianna is wearing like a glove. And it would be a shame for those sparkly Kate Spade shoes to be sinking in the sand... 

    Anyway... See how Brianna is jumping on the bed in her dress? She is officially my hero. Seriously. Bridey, look at her face! Exuding nothing except pure happiness and joy... Just like you should be on your wedding day, right? Excited and happy! And, I would be too if I was marrying my surf soul mate on a perfect day, and had planned such and incredible wedding filled with fantastic décor and lovely details. So... get to it! Enjoy!!

    I have decided to treat myself to this fucking FAB pair of Kate Spade shoes!Again, bridey, I want each of you to mimic Brianna on your wedding day. Look up! Look down! That's it!Hello handsome, Dan.First look pics definitely make my eyes well up...It really doesn't get more romantic, right?One more kiss before we walk down the aisle!WOW!Brianna, I want to be friends, okay?LOVE LOVE LOVE!Chalk board instead of escort cards... FAB! And, I love how each table is a flower instead of a number.I mean... Can we just talk about the lace tablecloths and stunning eyecandy?!!Brianna, Dan... I love the pics with you kissing! So emotional and passionate for each other!!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Tattoo Rockin', Cake Smashing, Vintage Wedding

    I'm kinda obsessed with this photograph. Right? So fun and so personal... I mean... If this shot doesn't tell you a little bit about the B+G, Beesh and Chad, then open your eyes, bridey! Because, clearly this is a couple that likes to have fun, and doesn't take themselves too seriously. And, are you totally dying over Beesh's ensemble? I LOVE her dress, the veil, the black shoes and her jewels! Chad, you're adorable too, but Beesh definitely steals the show! (And, one day, my hair will be that color!!)

    What I love most about Beesh and Chad's wedding is that their personalities shine through in almost every single photograph. It's apparent that they are having a fantastic time, enjoying their guests and most importantly, enjoying each other. And, isn't that what a wedding should be about; enjoying the person you're marrying? Yes!!!!!

    Beesh! Your eyes look gorgeous! And that bouquet is FAB!I love a tea length wedding dress.Such a fun first look shot!So super cute...Seriously. The dress, the shoes, the birdcage veil... Oh my!Stick 'em up!To say that this cake is fucking amazing would be an understatement.Okay... Creepy awesome!Don't worry, Chad gets her back! Look down!Beautiful shot of the MOH!OMG! Favors that people actually like!!! Beesh! Chad! Totally in love with your wedding! Thanks for sharing with BB!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Don't be a Bitch on Your Wedding Day! 6 Tips to Get Rid of the Bridey Bitch!

    I've written quite a bit about how to not be a bitch while planning your wedding, but it dawned on me that I haven't really touched on why it's so important not to be a bitch on your wedding day. Bridey, I think it's safe to say that your wedding day is filled with a tangled web of emotions; happiness, elation, excitement, fear, anxiety, etc.... All perfectly normal... And, sometimes when we're filled with that kind of emotion, it's easy to go one of two ways... Euphoria or bridaldemia, and it's up to you to choose the better of the two.

    The reason I'm mentioning this? Well, after an extremely busy weekend filled with two weddings, and everything you can think of in between, I realized that my very lovely brides each took on one of the two aforementioned emotions. And, frankly, I was shocked. Both were super detailed oriented, although easy to work with during the wedding planning (they must be avid readers of BB), and both had relatively supportive families. So, what made one bride go batshit crazy on her wedding day and one continue to be her fabulous self? THAT is a good fucking question!

    And while I don't have the answer, I can tell you who had a better wedding day experience. If you guessed bridey B, then you guessed right. Bridey B was relaxed and happy. She took in each and every moment of the day, totally let go of "wedding planning mode", and slipped into something much more comfortable, her wedding day. While Bridey A was argumentative with anybody who dared crossed her path. Honestly? It was strange; something I didn't see coming based on our planning experience.

    So, bridey, I got to thinking about what can we do to alleviate Bridey A from presenting herself on your wedding day, and here's what I came up with: 

    1. Alcohol. Just kidding!! Well, sort of... I hate to admit that it was the first thing that came to mind! However, if you are careful not to get piss drunk, then there is nothing wrong with a cocktail as you are getting ready to walk down the aisle. Just be sure to nourish yourself with delicious food and plenty of water, and surround yourself with your favorite ladies!

    2. Timing is everything. As a planner, I build a TON of extra time into the getting ready piece of the wedding day. I do this because inevitably there is always something (or someone) who will throw you off track, and there is nothing more stress inducing than being late. So, give yourself a lot of extra time.

    3. Breathe. Seriously. What's done is done, bridey, so freaking out about the details on the day of your wedding will get you nowhere. Simply relax and breathe. Remember, that at the end of the day (quite literally), you will have gotten married to the man (or woman) you are going to spend the rest of your life with, right? How awesome is that? YAHOO! So, don't allow your anxiety and nerves to win. It will show through in your photographs, and for what? Shit that won't matter...

    4. Let it go. Oh dear God. UGH! I just started singing that fucking song...

    Fantasy Friday ~ An Outdoor Winter Ceremony on a Candlelit Mountain Top

    Look how beautiful!!! Seriously, could ya' bust? Totally reminds me of my fantasy bachelorette party post!! Now, imagine getting married on a mountain top, and then partying the night away at this beautiful venue. Right? Can I get a, "fuck yeah"?!! Seriously, talk about a memorable evening (or weekend!)! And, know what I absolutely love about Jessi (and Nick)? This girl had the balls to get married outside (as in host the ceremony outside!!) in March! WOW! That's pretty impressive and unique! Although, when you see all the incredible deets, bridey, you won't be too surprised.  

    Pepper, with Pepper Nix Photography, (my new FAVE and FAB photographer!) asked the bride quite a few questions about her wedding plans, overall experience, etc. My favorite? Scroll down and see Jessi's advice for future brides.... Clearly, Jessi was a Bitchless Bride! Enjoy! 

    Hello GORGEOUS canary diamond... WOW!!!I love this photograph...OBSESSED with the shoes and the gold toes!Why a Mountain Wedding? Nick and I love to ski. It is something we have been doing since we were very young. Additionally, when we first started dating it was something we did together several times a week. We also love, love, love the mountains, fresh air, and fantastic perspective their majesty brings!

    Lovin' the ass grab!I love the wedding dress and the snow boots!I had all my bridesmaids pick their own dresses. I told them blue, above the knee, and no sleeves. They all picked out dresses that were incredibly flattering and somehow it worked out. Additionally they all wore printed black tights. I bought them coats and boots to keep them warm. One of my bridesmaids, Christina, made muffs (instead of flowers) and we all had a fantastic time making crass poses with them. (HA! Obviously, BB LOVES this!)

    So so so cute! What brand new elements did you bring to the day? Getting married outside in the snow. The planner was a bit apprehensive, but I stuck to my guns and am glad I did.Best pic ever!! Did you follow that tradition and if so, what did you use? Yes, yes, yes...Old was my mothers ring in my bouquet, new was my dress, borrowed was ring from my aunt Ginny that she wore on her wedding day, and blue was my shoes.

    Any advice you have for future brides? Take a deep breath when you are up front and look at everyone who is supporting you. Two, don't get so caught up in the details that you forget what you are doing, joining two people together. Three, surround yourself with people you love...don't be obligated to invite people or put people in your bridal party who you don't want there. Four, hire someone to do things the day of...it was the best decision we made. Five, make a weekend of it. We did a pub crawl on Friday night and it was so fun. We had many activities and stayed together, so it felt like a vacation!

    Look at this room, bridey! OMG! So warm and beautiful without being overdone!Such a romantic couple!What did you serve? A sit-down plated dinner of our signature pistachio nut encrusted Utah trout with local wild mushroom and truffle mashed potatoes, grilled filet mignon and a vegan friendly grilled polenta cake napoleon with a smoked tomato puree. We wanted something less traditional, so we opted for a brown cake with swirls. Honestly, Nick and I were hanging out with my aunt and she asked us a couple questions about what we liked and what we absolutely didn't want. In the end we told he she had complete creative control and the cake was deish! So many people came up to us and told us it was the best cake they had ever had, maybe it was because there was no fondant!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ An Exquisite, Black & White Wedding at the Mandarin Oriental, Boston

    We've all heard the phrase or even said that we were going to, "roll out the red carpet", right? Well, imagine if you, bridey, were going to roll out the black carpet? And, that black carpet was going to be used to transform a space so magnificent as the ballroom at the Mandarin Oriental in Boston for your wedding? I mean, holy shit... That's exactly what Paula and Greg did (well, their group of incredibly talented wedding vendors anyway...). This kickass group of industry peeps created the most A MAZ ING black and white wedding; one that will leave you absolutely drooling over the details. 

    Bridey, close your eyes and imagine a shiny black dance floor, mirrored tables (seriously, who needs linen when you have mirrored tables!), an insanely GORGE floral installation (which doubled as your wedding altar), charger plates that I totally would hang in my house, etc. etc. etc.... Oh wait! Open your eyes! Silly me! Just scroll down, bridey, scroll down and prepare to be blown away. Enjoy!!

    Paula... Wow! I can't... It's too good... This bouquet seriously brings tears to my eyes! And look down... I love tying sentimental value into something so special.This is awfully romantic!We did it! We signed the Ketubah! Let's go get married!Exquisite. Simply exquisite chuppah!!I love how her parents catch her half way down the aisle.Ghost chairs... LOVE!
