    Fantasy Friday ~ A True Fantasy... A Stunning Italian Wedding

    I have been lucky enough to be married to my hus for 10 years. TEN YEARS!! OMG! No, I’m not an old lady; I just took the leap at a young age! But, anyway… Although we eloped to Las Vegas, a few years ago on Bitchless Bride, I wrote about what my fantasy wedding would have been had we decided to be a bit more “traditional”. And while I would still love for Prince to play at the reception, I have to admit, when I saw Julie and Deneb’s wedding submission come through, I think that perhaps I’ve changed my mind because their wedding is exactly what I would want mine to be, today.

    Andrea, the talented photographer, shot this wedding in Gavi, Italy (in the Piedmont region, not too far from Milan) at a venue called L’Ostellier. Um, not only is this a beautiful location, but also, they make their own wine!! A MAZ ING! (My hus and I honeymooned in Italy, and I swear I could have stayed there for the rest of my life!) Julie and Deneb’s wedding was not only stunning, but amazingly romantic… Scroll down… You’ll see! Bridey, if a destination wedding is your plan, I highly suggest Gavi, Italy!! Enjoy!

    I'm absolutely OB SESS ED with the invitations!!! Julies's mom made her dress. Talk about DIY!!! It's incredibly beautiful!This is a first for me. I have never seen a photograph of somebody cutting a wedding dress (on the day of the wedding). Although, I am assuming that it's Julie's mom, and considering that she made the dress, I guess it's okay!!The flowers are stunning, but look beyond them... That's one hell of a backdrop!!!Friends of the B+G...Julie's dad officiated the wedding... Sniff sniff...You'll see...

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Uniquely Personal, Rustic, Barn Wedding with Great Socks, Dips and Kisses

    Bridey, let me ask you a question… How often can you say that you made a decision based on a pair of socks? Never, right? I mean… Let’s be honest, usually I make a decision based on the kickass shoes I get to wear, but never the socks!! Right? Anyway… the post you are about to embark on today? I was totally drawn to it because of the socks. True story. Brett, the groom, is wearing such a FAB pair that I just couldn’t resist. Turns out, the rest of the details captured in Lynn and Brett’s wedding are just as cool as Brett’s socks. 

    I’m absolutely DY ING over the escort card “display” (OMG… holy shit!), the gift “box” and the message in a bottle. Not to mention the cake topper is completely awesome. To me, Lynn in Brett absolutely succeeded in making their wedding about who they are as a couple while at the same time, engaging their guests. Bravo….

    I'm obsessed with the detail in Lynn's dress!Seriously? SO SO SO cute!C'mon with the socks!! I really love them (and there's even another pic!)!Don't you just love the gift "box"?Utter joy... WOW! That's one hell of a dip/kiss!!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Five Reasons You, Bridey, Can be a Bitch, Just Like My Cat

    As I was laying in bed last night, my cat, Olivia, was all over me. She was headbutting my face, pawing my shoulder when I wasn't responding quickly enough for her advancements and then completely ignoring me when I was ready to give her my full attention. And then it dawned on me... My cat is just like a few of my clients! Holy shit! These brideys represent some of the best and the worst behavior of my feline. While I'm not suggesting that these girls poop in a box, I am suggesting that every interaction they have is on their terms... Meaning that you, bridey, can be a bitch, just like my 'lil furry beast! Seriously, it was a midnight fucking epiphany! For instance:

    1. Cats are selfish. Right? Pretty much every single thing they do is self-serving. Some of my clients? The EXACT same way! They're selfish. Really, it's incredible how self absorbed and rude a bride can be when she feels a tiny bit ignored or if she feels as though her needs are not being met. Perhaps it more of a self preservation mechanism, but whatever it is, it can be painful.

    The fix? Remember that while your needs are important, bridey, the needs of those around you count too. So, just breathe, and know that people care about you and will take care of you. Just like a cat! No need to panic!

    2. Cats need immediate attention... On their terms. I've had a client get angry that I did not return her a call within an hour of receiving a message. Once I explained that I was in a meeting with a client (who was tying the knot in 48 hours), she simmered down, but... REALLY? 

    The fix? Bridey, you are important to me, and I promise to take care of you. Remember this when I don't respond within 60 minutes. 

    3. Cats ignore you. It's funny, I am about to contradict myself based on what I said in #2, but

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Seriously FABULOUS, 1920s Styled Shoot... 

    Bridey, you’re going to see A LOT of this gorgeous 1920s styled shoot. Not just on Bitchless Bride, but if I had to guess, you’re bound to see this shoot on several sites. And normally I would choose to dodge a submission knowing that it is going to be on a gazillion blogs, but honestly? It’s just too good! I simply couldn’t walk away… As a wedding planner, as a woman and a little bit of a diva, I just had to share this with you as soon as I saw it come across my inbox. Seriously, just wait until you scroll down and see for yourself.

    Sooooo… This group of gifted vendors got together and created the shoot in the India House, located in the “stone street historic district” of New York City. The India House was established in 1914, and even has its own landmark building. How FAB is that? And, the goal? To feel like this wedding took place in the 1920s. Know what? They totally nailed it! By the time you’re done taking it all in, you will feel like you just walked out of the Great Gatsby.  So, enough outta me… Enjoy this breathtaking shoot!

    Holy shit... If looks could kill...What's that like? Being beautiful, and having the most stunning eyes? Right?Wow. Just wow. Look at that headpiece! Hot damn. That's hot! Amazing dress. Simply stunning!Does anybody else feel the sex vibe emanating from this photograph? I mean... This pic totally gets me going! "Oh... you want me to get comfortable and have a cocktail while I wait for her to change? Sounds good." That dress! That hair!!! OMG!!Here they go again! Damn sexy.ANOTHER amazing dress... Bridey, if you're looking for a Great Gatsby feel for your wedding... I think you just got a ton of inspiration!!!
