    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Homestyle, Colorado, Beautiful Backyard Wedding

    I love that this wedding was submitted to me not only because of the stunning details, but because it's truly a "bitchless" wedding. Seriously, I LOVE that "bitchless" is more than just a trademark. The whole reason why I put my heart and soul into this website is to educate you, bridey, and if the word bitchless is becoming a thing, then I guess I am doing something right. 

    Check out the little bit by the fabulous photographer, Urban Safari Photography: " I am thrilled to submit Tina + Alex's seriously bitchless, backyard wedding! I'm not kidding, these two were absolute joys to photograph. There was not a single moment of bridezilla-ness or groomzilla-ness, and I'm so happy to have shared their wedding day with them. They planned a killer backyard wedding in the hills of the beautiful mountains in Colorado..."

    I've seen this photo a million different ways, but this is by far one of my faves...Tina, you look STUN NING! Just a couple of dapper boys waiting for some girls...I love the jewel toned flowers! And that awesome altar... WOW!Okay, cowboy boots aren't my thing, but DAMN they look good on everybody else!Um, nice backyard!!!!!I love the small intimate bridal party.Okay. I had to show you this picture. Honestly, I wasn't really sure where to place it, so, here is good!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ It's Time to Trash the Wedding Day Countdown

    Today, I've decided to pick up from where I left off last week… In case you missed my post last Tuesday, I wrote Five BASIC Ways to be The Best Bride Ever! Let's focus on # 4… You know the whole wedding day countdown? The “63 Days Until I’m Mrs. Whogivesafuck” post on FaceBook? Don't get me wrong, some of you need a countdown so that it prompts you to remember to get off your ass and get the shit done for your wedding which has been on your “to do” list for too long. But, for you cray cray brideys (and you know who you are), a wedding day countdown can be your own personal hell. You log into your account on The Knot, and you see that you have 68 days until your wedding, sorry, ONLY 68 days until your wedding, and you break out into a cold sweat, and then proceed to torture the rest of us; namely your vendors.

    Outside of constantly seeing wedding countdown shit all over FaceBook, I happen to be working with a bride who EVERY TIME we talk (and that's quite a bit), she tells me how many days there are until the wedding. EVERY FUCKING TIME! I mean, it’s all I can do not to dropkick her ass. Seriously, when she breaks out into the whole number of days, hours, and minutes until her wedding, I reach for the Xanax. And, it's not for her, it's for ME! NOT because I am stressed; this is my job, bridey, I got this, but because I need to calm my body so that I don’t pound this chick!

    Bridey, of course you should be aware of how much time you have until your wedding! But, knowing how long you have until your wedding should excite you, not stress you to the point of panic. Because panic makes you say and do shit that isn’t logical.

    Fantasy Friday ~ Dogs Are People, Too... A Hawaiian Engagement Session 

    Yeah... I can sometimes be a softie. Seriously, look up! There's a dog in that photo. See that adorable couple with their adorable golden retriever? I mean, how could I resist the cuteness? Not too mention that I am a huge fan of bringing what's important to you into your engagement shoots. For some of you, that means spicing it up with a paint fight or rolling around on an old truck or trashing an old motel room together, and that's fantastic, because it's personal... But, for Michelle and Seung, it's about their love for their dogs, Bailey and Sadie. Sadly, Sadie died about a week before this shoot, but if you scroll down, you'll see how Michelle and Seung paid tribute Sadie without turning a happy day into a sad one. 

    Bridey, remember that if you're going to take the time (and that of your photographer) to have an engagement or save the date shoot, then do it right! Make it personal, or don't do it at all. Seriously, look around at all of the photographs you have of each other. Are they the same? And, are they boring? Probably!! So, step out of the box, and make your engagement shoot personal or don't bother. Okay... off my gigantic soapbox. Go look at the FAB pics!
    I love how they are looking at each other!!

    I am SO going there... I feel like Seung is looking at Michelle, like "Hey girl... What do you say we take this to the grass?"Bailey is wearing a photograph of Sadie around her neck.

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A FABU, Low Budget Elopement

    You know that I am a sucker for an elopement, right? Because, as you all know, I eloped, so I have a total soft spot for the chicks and guys who say, "Screw what everybody thinks, we are going to this this our way!" And then they do that that. Take Cady and Sean for instance. They eloped one November day in their home city of Seattle, Washington. And, what better place than at the top of the Seattle Space Needle? Sooooo, with only their best friends present, they were pronounced them husband and wife high up in the sky where nobody could actually see them! How awesome is that?!

    Lionlady (Photography): "Cady found her vintage, affordable dress on ModCloth, and her accessories in local boutiques. Her mother crafted her bouquet from flowers found at Pike Place Market, a downtown Seattle staple. After the small reception held at Ten Mercer, a local Seattle restaurant, Cady and Sean drove to Whistler, a ski resort in British Colombia for their honeymoon."

    I'm kinda dying over all of the details.Simple dress and lovely plum shoes...Gorgeous flowers and I LOVE the birdcage veil!Wow... Sean, you're so handsome!BEST. LOOK. EVER.

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Five Basic Ways to be The Best Bride EVER!

    Mind if I skip the bullshit and get right to it today? Seriously, I want to tell all of you brideys how to the be the best bride you can be, but I would like to do it without sugar coating the truth. Can I do that, please? Cool, thank you. Because lately I feel like I am working with some "newbies" (as in, newly engaged), and you girls aren't quite as well versed in your bridal manners as you could be, so here it goes...

    Let's start with the basics, shall we?:

    1. Manage your expectations. I've said it a million times, and I'll say it again. Bridey, don't forget to manage your expectations (and your manners) during the wedding planning process. Right now, you are eating, sleeping and definitely drinking all things wedding. It's all you can think (and talk) about, and oftentimes you find yourself super frustrated when you reach out to one of your wedding vendors and they don't get back to you fast enough. Like, ten minutes after you hit "send". Or when you're out with your girlfriends and thirty minutes go by and nobody else has said a word except you. When you finally come up for air, they are SLEEPING. Be respectful. Because, bridey, nobody cares as much as you do. So, MANAGE your expectations if you want to get through the process unscathed.

    2. Quit being a bitch. To your vendors, to your fiance, to your friends, to your mother, and to the holy ghost! I know that wedding planning is like taking on a second job. And it's fucking stressful. TRUST ME, I KNOW! You're basically moonlighting, and it's a lot to take on, but get your 'tude in check. Bridey, the nicer you are, the more people want to help you through the process. Right? So, quit being a bitch.

    3. Drop the holier than thou attitude. Along the same lines of "quit being a bitch", rockin' a holier than thou attitude because you're the bride is just as annoying, and you know what? NOBODY CARES! Bridey, you know how many brides there have been before you? And how many brides there are going to be after you? Getting married is nothing new. And when you treat people shit because you're the bride, yeah... It's bullshit.
