    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ All I Really Need to About Wedding Planning I Learned in Kindergarten

    I've been doing some thinking and I've come to the conclusion that everything a bride needs to know about wedding planning, she learned in kindergarten. All of these points are so completely basic, yet so completely applicable to wedding planning. Seriously, before you think that I am off my damn rocker, hear me out (or read me out for that matter). I've written a TON about perspective on BB, and it's really amazing how simple it can be. Just read below and you'll see that all you really need need to know about surviving wedding planning, bridey, you learned when you were five years old.

    “These are the things I learned (in Kindergarten):

    1. Share everything. Share the wedding planning responsibilies with your fiancé. Assign him (or her) wedding planning tasks that he will enjoy, and focus on your the tasks that are most important to you.

    2. Play fair. Don't be a bitch. Don't make your bridesmaids wear ugly dresses. Don't be rude to your wedding vendors. Play fair, bridey!

    3. Don't hit people. Bridey, I certainly hope that you won't go around hitting (or punching, biting or scratching) people, but some of your friends and family may feel like they got socked in the gut when your inner 'zilla sneaks out. So, keep that bitch tucked in, and keep your hands to yourself. 

    4. Put things back where you found them. Unless you've found "the dress". Bridey, don't take a chance or second guess yourself because it was the first one you found. If it isn't "the one", then please do put it back where you found it, but please don't take a chance that it'll will get sold out from under you simply because it was the first dress you tried on.

    5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS. But first, try not to make one. But, if you do, then clean it up, bridey. Did you piss off your bestie because you were talking too much about the wedding? Then buy her a drink, and let her have the floor. Did you snap at your photographer for not emailing you back within five minutes? Then apologize and wait your turn. Trust me, your wedding planning will be that much more seamless if you clean up your own mess.

    6. Don't take things that aren't yours. Bridey, if you didn't pay for it, then you can't have it. You can't have something if it isn't yours. If you want an additional layer of wedding cake, then you're going to have to pay for it. If you want to import particular flowers for your bouquet, then you're going to have to pay for it. You can't take things that aren't yours. You can only "take" them if you buy them. See what I mean? So don't take things that aren't yours.

    7. Say you're SORRY when you HURT somebody. It's almost impossible to go through your wedding planning unscathed or without hurting somebody's feelings. The easiest way to get through it, bridey? Say you're sorry when your hurt somebody. Period. The end. 

    8. Wash your hands before you eat. Wash your hands before the food tasting. Wash your hands before the cake tasting. And make a concentrated effort to wash your hands of the bullshit. Do not allow yourself to get sucked into the webb of insanity during the wedding planning. Wash your hands of it...

    9. Flush. Get rid of it. Start fresh, bridey. Flush your system of any ill feelings. Be it about your future family in law, skeletons of the past, etc. It's best to go into wedding planning with a clean slate. So flush it.

    10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Ventura Beach, Ocean Front, Mismatched Bridesmaids Wearing Kickass Wedding

    If I had to guess, I would say that the bride and groom are definitely water signs. And you know what, bridey, you’re probably going to agree with me after you browse these beautiful photographs. You see, Shelby and Daniel are avid water sports enthusiasts. Wake boarding and surfing is their passion, so it would only make sense to get married at the beach, right? Right. They wanted their wedding photos to reflect their love of the sea and the sand, and I would say that they did a wonderful job building their mutual charisma for the ocean into their wedding. 

    Another cool ‘lil tid bit? The wedding was held on the beach near their new home. I mean, how fucking FAB is that? Talk about having everything come together!! New home, new hus and a kickass wedding down the beach? Pretty cool! Plus, I’m a little obsessed with the colors scheme for this wedding. Seriously, Shelby did an amazing job choosing her palette! Coral and ocean blue! FABULOUS! Check out the mismatched bridesmaids dresses; they are absolutely GORGE. I totally love how they are within the same orangey color spectrum, and yet each are entirely different, but in complete harmony. Go see for yourself!!

    Just LOOK at those bridesmaids dresses!! I really love them!Those are the RSVPs. Not only are they awesome, but I love that they are hanging up and that Shelby and Daniel's guests had the chance to write something fun on the card!!Such a fine looking couple! Love the pedi, Shelby!It really doesn't get better than that, huh? Great shot!!Lovely succulents!Amazing idea for escort cards!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A City Chic Wedding Rockin' Food from the Farmer's Market & Food Trucks!

    Everybody bride wants her wedding to be different and unique. Every single one! But, when it comes down to it, what makes each wedding different and unique is incorporating what's important to you and your sig other into the wedding itself. In this case, Leigh and Art rocked it! They chose somewhat of an off beat wedding hosted at the local Farmers Market. Sorry, but as far as different and unique, that's pretty FAB! That, and they had their favorite food truck vendors cater the event. SHUT UP! Pretty incredible, right? They both share a love for local products so it seemed only natural they serve local fair.

    A wedding at the Farmer's Market with food trucks is pretty fucking fantastic, but that coupled with the royal blue and lime green decor? Simply unbelievable! There are so many awe-inspiring details in this one, bridey, so get ready for some serious inspiration!

    I'm thinking I need a new wedding band, and this girl is going sapphire!! Love your ring, Leigh!The first look and now these colorful pics? AWESOME!Pretty cool, peeps.Um. Yeah. Succulents, roses, and bling? Now you're talking!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ For the Sake of the Invitation 

    Okay, this topic is coming up quite a bit in my world and those of my talented vendor friends, so I thought I would step in and write a bit about it so that you, bridey, can stop killing us with all of the back and forth. Here's the deal, your wedding isn't until November or December, but for sake of the invitation, you need to know what you're serving at the wedding so that you can complete the insert. Sound familiar? What is a girl to do? Well, here's a little test. Let's see how you do:

    a. Call your wedding venue and demand a tasting?
    b. Email your wedding planner (or invitation vendor) stating "emergency" in the subject line?
    c. Panic, I mean your wedding is only six months away; why isn't anybody getting back to me?
    d. All of the above.
    e. None of the above.

    NONE OF THE ABOVE! Bridey, a tip? Relax. Everything is going to be okay. I swear, I'm totally not meaning to patronize, but everything will be okay. Let me walk you through this one, because it's a very valid point, although if your wedding isn't for six months or so, frankly, you don't matter to most of your vendors right now (sorry, but true story!). I know you don't want to hear this, but your venue, caterer, etc. are in the middle of a very busy spring wedding season. And if your wedding isn't until late fall, I can assure you that the last thing they want to do is hear from you, let alone arrange a tasting so that you can figure out what to put in your invitation. 

    So, what should you do? Well, it's actually quite simple.

    Fantasy Friday ~ Fixin' to Show Y'all a Fabulous Southern Wedding

    OMG... when I saw this gorgeous wedding, I seriously thought that was thumbing through the pages of Southern Wedding magazine. There are some profoundly stunning details (like, down to the field of rainbow wildflowers, I mean…who has that?!), a beautiful bride whose name means “noble kind” (and look at her, it totally fits) lovely, blush bridesmaids dresses, a kickass square wedding cake… Seriously, I could keep going, but I think I’d rather show you. Right?

    But, first, here’s the lowdown… Heidy and Sharon were married at The Island House on Johns Island just outside of Charleston, SC. The Island House is a private location with beautiful views of the Stono River. Heidy and Sharon had an outdoor ceremony with about 70 of their closest friends and family who made their way to South Carolina from all over the country. Their reception was tented and fabulous filled with tons of dancing, hora-ing and fun! My girl, Heidy, changed out of her wedding gown into a fucking GORGE sequined dress that will absolutely leaving you drooling, brideys! Enjoy!Whoa... That's fancy!Dying over the blush.What did I tell you? Heidy is STUN NING!!Look at those flowers! Not just the lovely bouquets, but the wildflowers in the background. Gorgeous! And I am lovin' those bridesmaids dresses!Hopefully the glass Sharon is breaking is actually a light bulb. Yeah, light bulbs break easily... Glass does not always break! Definitely not what you want to happen at your wedding! Mazel Tov!
