Bridey, when I tell you that David's first look reaction is amongst the most incredible, emotional and straight out gut-wrenching reaction I've EVER seen in person and on Bitchless Bride, believe me. When I tell you that Holly + David are madly in love, and created a wedding entirely representative of that love, believe me. When I tell you that YOU too can create a wedding that is entirely about you and your sig other, believe me. Whatever you are doing that doesn't feel like it is about the two of you, stop. Remember that you can and deserve to have a wedding which represents who you are together. Just scroll down for proof of that sentiment.

Bridey, this wedding will absolutely blow your mind. I'm OB SES SED with this backyard throw down party filled with raw emotion, tons of delicious treats, WAFFLES and a l'il debauchery. H+D definitely know how to throw a party! But, beyond the party, it's apparent that these two belong with each other and put together a celebration symbolic of their love. You should try it.... I give you permission to have the wedding you want and to be has happy as Holly + David. Enjoy!

When a Rockette Gets Married... A Sensational Choreographed Dance, Lots of Legs and Plenty of Sparkle!

First of all... Look at Alina's silver, sequined and sparkly wedding dress! Isn't it stunning? Like show-stoppingly beautiful ? Although I'd expect nothing less from a Radio City Rockette! Right? Gotta have tons of sparkle and break the white wedding dress tradition! And, that's just the first wedding dress of the evening! Anyway... Alina and Geoff met and fell in love in NYC, and decided to have a destination wedding in the fabulous Nashville.

Bridey, the details encapsulated in this wedding are completely astonishing! Like... So fucking good that I truly love every single detail. Considering that I have been in a serious glitter/glam place these days, A+G's wedding does not disappoint! Even with a slight hiccup which could have been catastrophic (scroll down to see), this B+G continued to have an amazing day! Enjoy this wedding! It's absolutely exquisite!

That's Alina's wedding dress number two! Love the color and the cut!

Love this shot... Amazing train and am completely dying over the shoes! 

Seriously, could they get any cuter?! Actually, they can! Keep going...

Hey girl! Bring it! Love your Statue of Liberty...

Gorgeous bouquet! OMG!

OMFG. WOW! That is a beautiful chuppah! I am completely obsessed with the chandelier and the stunning draping! 

Flowers + feathers = AWESOME!

Wait... Wait... Wait... The chuppah is falling down! 

Yikes! Thank goodness for friends and family! This is a big deal, bridey, and like I said, shit will go wrong on your wedding day... But, luckily it all worked out(ish)! And, the B+G didn't let it put a damper on the day!

Seriously, LOVE that train!

Such a great photograph!!

 Great use of stamps for entrĂ©e selection! See the chicken? See the cow? Awesome!

Hello sparkles!!!!

Warm and romantic...

Um. I can't... I really can't. This cake has FIVE tiers! FIVE! And, sparkle confetti? A FUCK ING MAZING! WOW!

And the desserts!!!! So yummy!!

These guests totally know how to party!

Look up! Now, look down! Never seen the splits at a wedding!!

And we out... Thank you for sharing your beautiful and fun wedding with Bitchless Bride!

The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Five Ways to Beat Wedding Dress Back Fat

When I look at the the Bitchless Bride stats, a common search that lands people on the site is "hiding back fat in a wedding dress" or "how to eliminate back fat in a wedding dress". The reason so many of you end up on BB while conducting these searches is because I wrote an article last April called, "From Strapless to Fabulous". And honestly, it pissed some of you off, but it seemed to resonate with most of you. So, let's call this a continuation of sorts... And again, some of you are gonna hate me, but today is all about the truth, so deal with it.
1. I'm a curvy girl. I have what they classify as "hour glass" figure.  I'm a size 8/10 with a little waist and a pretty fab rack. But, the price I pay for such a fine rack is occasional back fat. That's why, when given the choice, I don't usually go for a strapless dress. I would rather avoid the whole fatty back thing, and the whole pulling it up all night thing, and just choose something with a halter or some spaghetti straps, and move on. And if you feel like I do, then my advice? Just avoid the whole "I need a strapless dress for my wedding or I'm gonna die..." thing... Don't do it. Bat fat problem? GONE!! See how easy that was? Problem solved. Pick something else.

2. If you're completely hell bent on walking down the aisle in a strapless gown, then lose some weight. There, I said it. Sorry, but it's true.

Fantasy Friday ~ Wet 'N Wild

Seriously, this is my fantasy. I think I need to go buy myself a wedding dress just so I can have a trash the dress session like this one. I know it's crazy, but I am starting to think that I NEED to know what it feels like to have a wet wedding dress stuck to my body. Dunno why, but I do! Oh my GOD! I think I've really lost my fucking mind. Right? But, bear with me, brideys!

This shoot took place in northwest Montana (Okay... So, I probably won't head all the way over there for a shoot, although it's definitely an idea!), and it goes to show you what a little nature can do. Honestly, this session is nothing short of stunning, and while most of that has to do with the beautiful bride, a little nature didn't hurt either. Enjoy!

That floral headpiece is adorable! And her eyes? Whoa! Gorgeous!

C'mon... You're totally dying to know what that feels like too!! I know you are!!

Clearly, she is caught in a laugh out loud moment. What a great photograph!!

Amazingly vibrant! Only in Montana! Well, I think... I'm a city girl! What do you want from me??

Just hanging out... In the field...

Dying over those boots!

SO cute!!

A GIANT thank you to Kelly Kirksey Photography for submitting this FAB trash the dress shoot!!

Fantasy Friday ~ The Rainbow Connection

I am in a mood... A whimsical mood... A happy mood... An almost childlike mood... No, really I am! I can't figure out if it's because I am working with some great brideys lately or because Spring is finally in the air, but BB has the fever! And when you have the fever, you just have to go with it. Right? So why not be happy? Like deliriously fucking happy? And you know what is a happy color? RAINBOW! Which of course got me thinking about two things... The Rainbow Connection, by Kermit (be sure to watch the video... you'll thank me later for that stupid grin of yours), and how cool it would be to plan an over-the-top rainbow wedding!

Soooo... welcome to Fantasy Friday!! I am drooling over these photographs, and feel so inspired to push the limit with any bride who will allow me to do so... So c'mon, bridey! Get into the rainbow mood with me and let's have some fucking fun! 

Gorgeous. Stunning. Ballsy. 

Yes, I think it's real fur, but please don't kill the messenger (she says quietly). I wanted to share it because I think it's fabulous, not because I am taking a stand one way or another regarding animal rights (however, you all know that I have two cats, so I too am hoping it's faux!) Anyway....

Um, walk down the aisle in your Jimmy Choo's and then change into some rainbow Vans? Sounds good to me!

Yeah... There are no words... Well, except that the spotlight just might be off of you, bridey, for a little while as your guests take in the cuteness of the flower girls!

No words... None. Other then FUCKING FANTASTIC!

All That Glitters Is Not Always Gold

From the Desk of "Goldilocks"... Bride AND Vendor:

I’ve peeked behind the curtain and…. Hum, I was really really disappointed.  To what am I referring to you ask?  In the bridal world, especially on the East coast, there is one spot that is a hands down wedding institution, a place that is a bridal rite of passage for dress shopping: I would say the name, but I don’t want to get in trouble with the ringmaster, so please use your imagination. For now, I will refer to it as “The Institution”.
