SO SO SO excited to share another video with you, bridey! If you want to see me preach, I mean, talk about how to save a ton of moola on your wedding, then take a minute to watch this video posted on Yahoo! Finance. Enjoy!!!
I am so beyond THRILLED to have had the opportunity to be featured on Yahoo! Finance! Bridey, check out the video, read the article, and BE SMART WITH YOUR MONEY!
Brideys, back in 2012, before I comfortable spouting the truth, openly, I used to wear a hot pink wig and sunglasses to hide my identity. And, in this video, (one of my absolute FAVORITES) I somehow, I got my Dad + stepmom to wear hot pink wigs, sunglasses and rock the camera with some advice on your wedding budget. This originally posted in August of 2012, but is still SUPER relevant today. Oh! and Don't forget to check out the OUTTAKES! My dad had some trouble with his "part", gets frustrated, and swears like a lunatic... Totally priceless!
So... I received this "Ask Bitchless" in my mailbox the other day and feel as though the only way I can possbily respond is "in person"... And considering my own parents were married on a Tuesday, I have a few words of wisdom for the "Internal Eloper". Here's her dilemma:
I’m in need of some advice. My fiancé and I have decided our wedding date (yay!). It’s Wednesday, October 29, 2014, the exact date of our ten year anniversary. SCREETCH! Did you say WEDNESDAY?! Yes, Wednesday. We wanted to keep our original anniversary date, but have only one hold up... my mother.
My parents are traditionalists and believe that weddings are reserved for Saturdays, and that the parents of the bride should be the ones funding the soiree. That being said, they want us to change the date to sometime later in 2015 so that they have time to gather the funds, and for us to choose a weekend date so that my grandmother (and all of her extended family who I have never met) can see her only granddaughter get married. As my mother said, "this day is not about you. It is about your grandma. Don't take this pleasure away from us." Am I crazy? Am I turning into a bitchy bride by wanting to keep my original date? Please let me know.
Brideys, enough is enough! Stop the entitled insanity! Your vendors are thrilled to work with you, but surprisingly, they expect to be paid for anything additional you want throughout your wedding planning. Don't expect anything for free simply because you've already signed on the dotted line.

Thinking about planning your wedding at restaurant? Well, you're going to want to watch this before you do... Allow me to provide some insight into what most restaurant owners think about weddings...
Engaged over the holidays? Congratulations Bridey! Now... Allow BB to give you some tips on engagement management!
Brideys, if you choose to focus on the craziness of planning your wedding, then the craziness becomes your experience... If you choose to change your focus, then you change your perception of your wedding planning. It's that simple.
Sit down and listen bridey because I've had it with the pissy bullshit... And you need to know what you're doing wrong.
Brideys, I had to call in the experts because you JUST weren't listening. So pay attention... because when it comes to the wedding budget, it ONLY seems to sink in when it comes from a parent. Check out the OUTTAKES! My dad had some trouble with his "part" and swears like a lunatic!
Brideys... Allow me to be blunt: Don't fuck up your friendships because you are engaged.
