    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ I'm Not Going to Say, "I TOLD YOU SO!!!!"

    Yeah, I'm feeling kinda ranty today. Honestly, I'm fucking exhausted. I'm so tired of being the shrink, mediator, personal assistant, and hand holder. This wedding season has been awesome and brutal all at the same time! Seriously, I feel completely bipolar because one day, I am absolutely elated; lovin' life and my clients, and the next, I am down in the dumps wishing I had a chosen to do something else with my life. Something that didn't require so much brain power; something where my "product" wasn't dependant on people and their ever-changing ideas and opinions.

    This wedding season, I've had some truly amazing clients who really understand that there is life beyond their wedding day, and then I've also had some clients who are so self absorbed and seem to have some serious issues with sharing. That's an odd thing for me to say, huh? I guess it is... Why don't I explain with a story...

    Recently, I worked with a client who was absolutely OBSESSED with the fact that her gorgeous and extremely popular venue had the nerve to have another event booked in their ballrom prior to her big day. Outrageous, right? I mean, how could they have the audacity to maximize their profit on a busy Saturday in June? Yeah... hoping you're picking up on my sarcasm... Anyway, almost every single conversation we had either started with or ended with a diatribe, asking me if "I could believe that they had another party ending so close to the beginning of her wedding." Perhaps I am somewhat immune to a tight turn (meaning that the venue and vendors have a short period of time to flip an event space from one party to the next), but a two hour window is nothing; easy peasy. In fact, there are plenty of us (vendors, wedding planners, etc.) who have turned a room in an hour! But, no matter how hard I tried to explain this to my client, she would not HEAR me. And goddamn if I wasn't annoyed.

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Gorgeous, Rustic, Boho Styled Wedding Shoot

    Bridey, if you’re looking for inspiration, look no further! Seriously, there are oodles of inspiration in this rustic, boho shoot. OODLES! These pics are absolutely drool worthy, and every now and again, it’s nice for me to step down from the soapbox that is The Truth Hurts Tuesday, and even take a break from Real Wedding Wednesday and linger over the amazingly inspirational possibilities of a styled shoot brought to me by some seriously creative peeps in the industry.

    If you’re looking for some simple, yet beautiful styling ideas for your wedding, just scroll down. Jacqueline Marie Studios incorporated rich florals, vintage props and even a pink signature drink with a kiwi garnish. Super awesome, right? I mean, kiwi is rather delicious and you never see it in a cocktail, let alone at a wedding! Perhaps you want to rock a stunning headpiece as you make your way down the aisle? Then replicate the handmade floral wreath below. Personally? I am dying over that dress! Lace is not usually my thing (and neither is a form fitting gown due to my voluptuous ass), but I find myself loving the lace, the shape and the cut. And, don’t even get me started on the cake!!! Hell yeah! Enjoy this one, bridey. I did!Um... A MAZ ING. I love everything about this pic. Her hair, the headpiece and her beautiful long neck.Hi kiwi. You look quite lovely in a pink cocktail. Would make for a great signature drink!Such a fantastic chandelier!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Love Story that Started at Floatopia and Crossed the Ocean

    You know how they always say that you never know where you’re going to meet “the one”? Well, it’s true. For Allison and Luck, it all started at Floatopia, which I have never attended, but have heard, is pretty AWES! Anyway, instead of boozing on a raft in the ocean (which is where I would have been) Allison and Luke were building sandcastles with some kids on the beach when they met. Seriously, how cool is that? I mean, had they been boozing on a raft floating in the ocean, they might have missed out on the rest of their lives! Okay, so that’s kinda dramatic, but you see what I’m saying! Thanks to their love of building sandcastles, they found each other! Anyway, a few years later, Luke popped the question and now I am lucky enough to share their wedding with you!  

    I will let the Allison, the bride, take it from here… Enjoy all of the details, brideys! From the brideWe met at the infamous Floatopia of 2009 at UCSB. Unlike the majority of the revelers, we spent most of our day building sandcastles with some children we met on the beach. Later that night, when Luke bought me Freebirds nachos, I knew he was a keeper. 

    Fast forward a few years, and across an ocean. I had just traveled 24 hours from Cambodia to see my boyfriend in England, and all of my luggage was lost. It was cold and rainy and I was still dressed for the tropical weather I'd just left. Luke met me at the train station looking especially dapper but I figured he just wanted to look nice for me, and wished I could have done the same for him. 
    I love how Luke has his own hanger. Right? The brides always seem to rock a hanger which shows off their new last name, so I think it's pretty cool that Luke has one just for him!When he took me to his apartment (where I was going to stay until I found a place of my own), there was a handmade sign proclaiming our arrival at a riverfront cafe. When he whisked back a fancy silk curtain, there was a room full of flowers and candles. Every single surface glowed with the soft peach light reflected off the hundreds of flowers in the room.

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ REALLY? A Bride Ties a Baby to her Wedding Dress?

    OMG? WHAT the fuck? I had a whole other THT prepared (which you will see next Tuesday), but after I read this story on Buzzfeed, I literally dropped everything so that I could weigh in on this ridiculousness. Bridey, in case you missed it, check out this link. Yeah, apparently, the bride wanted her one month old baby girl to be part of the wedding ceremony; to be with her as she went down the aisle, so instead of I don't know, CARRYING her, she tied the baby to the train of her wedding dress, and dragged her down the aisle. Can I get an OMG, WHAT THE FUCK?! Right???

    Look, I'm not trying to be a hater. You know that's not how I roll. In fact, I spend a ton of time writing about how to make your wedding your own, how to ignore the "noise" and the bullshit and I truly try to push you, bridey, to do what's important to the two of you on your wedding day. And, for those of you who already have children together (or from another relationship), awesome! It's a fabulous idea to include them in your wedding ceremony or even have them walk you down the aisle! But, adhering your children to your wedding dress? I'm sorry, but that's all sorts of fucked up. Not only that, but it's dangerous! Your wedding dress is long, and your shoes are high. And sometimes, shit happens and a girl can lose her balance. Yeah, that alone is not pretty, but at least you're not putting anybody else's safety at risk; certainly not a four week old baby.

    Some people are suggesting that the authorities ought to get involved, but I disagree. While I think it was an incredibly stupid idea, I don't automatically connect the dots, point my finger at the bride and deem her as an unfit parent. Perhaps the hormones got the best of her and she really believed that the baby was "covered by Christ". Or perhaps she really, really thought it was a good idea to drag her newborn behind her. Whatever the case may be, it was not a good idea; it was a terrible idea. And I don't think I am the only one who thought so...

    If you look at the pic on Buzzfeed, there is a gentleman on the edge of the aisle who clearly looks horrified... You can definitely see "what the fuck" written all over his face. So, my question (or two) is why the hell didn't anybody suggest that the bride carry the child with or instead of her bouquet? Why didn't anybody mention to the bride that the baby may get injured, or that it would be plain stupid and fucking weird to drag her down the aisle? I dunno, but having a very young child behind you (instead of in front of you or next to you) in any situation seems dangerous. But, to do it intentionally? That's fucked up.

    What do you think? Haters gonna hate? Or just a really stupid idea?

    Fantasy Friday ~ Tropical Gardens, Gorgeous Beaches and Just Eight Guests

    While Michelle and Gavin didn’t quite elope, they did what I would have LOVED to do if my family situation was a bit more peaceful; they took eight guests to Port Douglas, Queensland Australia and got married. I mean… It really doesn’t get much better than that, right? Bridey, if you’re not the kind of girl that wants a big bash, then this is the way to go! Find a fabulous location, grab a few friends and family members, and get married! Oh, and get some hot red Jimmy Choo’s like Michelle did while you’re at it! (Scroll down, bridey, and you’ll be drooling like I was!! Seriously, it was all I could do not to open the post with those fucking A MAZ ING shoes!)

    Anyway… A cool ‘lil tid bit? Gavin, the groom, is wedding photographer! Although this time, he found himself on the other side of the camera, and he couldn’t quite let go of his desire to capture the moment. Apparently, he and Michelle scouted locations together and found the perfect ceremony location based on the best light. Gavin even directed a few of the location shots himself. Go see for yourself! Enjoy!
    Michelle, you are a truly beautiful bride...
    Um. Yeah. O.M.G. Holy Jimmy Choo!
    So, so, so pretty! I am in love with this wedding dress! Now, look down! Check out the back! Holy shit! Absolutely incredible!
    Perfect hair and make up, and simply stunning bling with that crazy awesome dress!
    Can't go wearing those on the beach now, can you?
