    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Monkey in the Middle... It's a Real Bitch!

    Bridey, I gotta ask you a question... Who's in charge? Who's wearing the pants? And, I'm not talking about your relationship with your sig other. Not only is it none of my business, but I don't give a shit. (I mean... For the sake of womankind, I hope it's an equal partnership, but again, none of my biz.) How you manage your relationship is your business, but what is my business is managing the details of your wedding. So, when your soon-to-be MIL calls me (or the venue, or the florist, or DJ, or the band, or the caterer... you see where I'm going with this), and wants to make significant changes to items we've worked hard putting in place, I get a li'l nervous. Therefore, I need to know, who's in charge?

    Yesterday, I was boozy brunching with a friend of mine (God I missed mimosas while I was pregnant!), and when I told her about Bitchless Bride, she starting sharing some crazy-ass stories with me (that's usually the reaction I get when I tell people about BB). Anyway, she told me how a friend of hers had some serious issues with her MIL as she was planning her wedding. You're gonna want to sit down, bridey... Trust me.

    So, this poor woman's MIL had the audacity to call the bakery and change the flavor and design of the fucking wedding cake. OMG! What the fuck is that about? Right? And, for some of you, the cake is like Holy Grail. It's the one thing you care about the most. You've invested tons of time and energy selecting the particulars, and then this bitch makes a single call and ruins it.

    Fantasy Friday ~ Dark, Moody and Fabulous... A Victorian-esk, Gothic Inspired Shoot

    Bridey, I think we've all seen quite a few black, red and white weddings, right? Be it in real life, blog posts, magazines, etc. And, while I love that color scheme, I love it even more when that same color scheme gets messy. Yeah, I love it when a little darkness gets thrown into this pretty palette. And today? Well, it's super messy... Actually, more like super awesome. I mean, just look at that dessert spread! Seriously, these talented vendors were able to convey their kickass vision through a dessert table! Now, that's pretty fucking cool if you ask me!

    If you're looking to come to the dark side (sorry, couldn't help it!), then take a walk with me. Come... Let's breathe in the incredible metallic details, touch the gorgeous flowers and dig into that dessert display. Thinking about not wearing white? Then check out the stunning purple wedding dress. Bridey, this one is too good not to take in...
    Loving the invitations and menu!Almost too pretty to eat. Almost.STFU! A MAZ ING! Something super cool? The flowers on the cake are made of wafer paper and painted with chocolate. WOW!!One of my favorite desserts in the whole world is a black forest verrine! I'd be in food heaven with both of those delicious treats!Yeah... Handmade faux flowers. I know, right? I had no idea either!!The contrast between the gold charger plate and the table are FAB!Care for a candy apple? And, btw... Can we just talk about how stunning her makeup is? I need this dress. I want this dress. This black wedding gown (by Camille La Vie) has a beaded bodice with a tulle skirt and purple underlay. Holy FABULOUS!Thank you for sharing this kickass styled shoot with Bitchless Bride. Tons of cool inspriation to play with!!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Bright, Botanical, Adorably Mushy, Colorado Wedding

    Meet Pari and Gavin. They are the beautiful couple shown in the photograph above. I think it's quite fitting that Pari's tattoo says "so it goes" considering that according to their talented photographer, John Bosley, the B+G were super laid back and in love. In fact, I love what John wrote about Pari and Gavi so much, that I am going to let him take over. Bridey, you should be lucky enough to have one of your vendors describe you and your sig other like this. Because this is the whole reason behind the party.

    "I feel like there’s a lot that I could say about Pari and Gavin. To say that they are crazy in love would be an understatement. To say that they are completely comfortable and adorable in front of the camera would be obvious. To say that they are two of the nicest people I’ve had the privilege of photographing would be the truth.Their wedding day has to be one of my favorites so far. Instead of weighing the day down with schedules and letting tradition control events, it was a light, carefree day full of smiles and laughter. Friends, family and good conversation took priority. Cakes got cut, toasts were made and bouquets got tossed, but tying it all together were the people who Pari and Gavin love most enjoying a beautiful day together."
    I love how chill Pari is... Just sipping her coffee like it ain't no thing...That flower girl is beyond adorbs! And the flower crown? Priceless! Holy bright and gorgeous bouquet!Lots of foxes these days...So much better than the typical shoes I see with tuxedos!I think it's awesome that these girls are having fun!Can't you just hear Pari saying, "OMG! I'm getting married!"?WOW!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Bridey, Did You Know You're My Only Client? Oh Wait...

    Why don't you just lift your leg and pee on me? Huh? What the fuck are you talking about BB? Well, I'm talking about how territorial brides become once they secure their wedding vendors. Seriously, it's like they literally become bitches (in the doggie sense of the word), claim you as their possession once they pay the deposit, and piss all over you. I swear, the wedding industry is the only industry where this seems to be the case, and where vendors work super fucking hard to make brides feel like they are in fact their only client...

    I mean, can you imagine if this was acceptable or the norm in any other industry? Clients becoming jealous or needy because their hairdresser has cuts hair for some other chick, or that their real estate agent shows houses to other potential buyers or their project manager manages other projects? Yeah... wouldn't happen. It needs to stop. And now. And, the more I thought about it, the more it bugged me that this is the norm, so I thought I'd try to get to the bottom of why most brides seem to hate the idea of their wedding vendors having other clients... So, here are the three big ideas I had as to the reasons behind this craziness, and some ideas as to how we can fix it. Ready?

    1. Exclusivity... Or lack thereof... Bridey, your wedding vendors have other clients, and you feel as though it somehow minimizes the enormity of your day. You're not the only one getting married. Yikes! Did I hit a nerve? In fairness, we all love the idea of exclusivity, and you are no different. So, if your vendors have other clients who have hired them to do the same thing, then you are not feeling the exclusivity you want and need to feel. Am I getting warmer, bridey? Look, I get it, I really do, but at the same time, bridey, your vendors having other clients won't make your wedding day any less special. You hired them because they are fantastic, so knock off the cray cray and let go of the drama.

    2. Jealousy. I think jealousy should be considered a four letter word. Right? I mean, there is nothing worse than a jealous woman (sorry, true story!), and more than that, a jealous bride (oh dear God!)! Bridey, if you're worried that the more clients a vendor has then the less they care about you, you're coo coo. But, it happens! I once had a bride tell me that she felt like I was cheating on her (openly) when I mentioned that I was off to an appointment with another bride after our meeting. REALLY? Bridey, it's amazing, but your vendors do have the capacity to love and adore all of their clients. Well, the ones worth loving and adoring. So BE one of those clients and drop the jealousy routine. It's super annoying. 

    3. Entitlement. Bridey, you're spoiled. You're used to being number one all of the time, and you hate it when your vendors have the audacity to put another bride before you. Why can't they make time to talk to you everytime you call? Why can't they meet you as often as you would like? Why don't they seem as enthusiastic as you do? Well, usually it's because they are working with a client (or several clients) whose wedding is before yours. Like, well before yours. Like a fucking year before yours. When you take a step back and look at the big picture, it makes sense, right? The best part? Your time will come too... Just be patient.

    So, the message here? The big secret? Bridey, you're not my only client. If I am any good, I have lots of clients. So, please, go pee somewhere else.

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Glamorous, Sexy, James Bond Inspired Shoot!

    Well, hello there handsome. Seriously, doesn't it look like he's about to take a Dunhill (cigarette) out of his breast pocket and light it up? I know! Super Bondy... If he lit up, this pic would take on a whole other feel with its amazingly smoky atmosphere, right? Okay, clearly, I am wishing that I too could take a Dunhill out of my pocket, but that's not gonna happen (well, unless I am presented with a delicious shaken martini). 

    Anyway, this kickass styled shoot took place at Vehicle Vault, a vintage car museum in Parker, Colorado. How cool is that?!! Just wait until you see the car they used! Holy shit! It's fucking awesome! Bridey, there's a ton of super cool treats in this styled shoot! I mean, there are Bond girls!! And, these Bond girls are rockin' gold body paint! Can you imagine if your bridesmaids were Bond girls with gold body paint?!! Yeah, kickass!! So, enjoy!!!!

    I love a round menu card! So fab! And, I'm completely obsessed with the super fance font!Bond girl! Body paint! LOVE IT! Brideys, seriously, I think you should make your bridesmaids Bond girls!Yum.... I'll take anything shaken these days!Um, the cake and the car. Holy shit! Yeah, that's a 1954 Mercedes Gullwing. WOW! Yeah, these awesome vendors centered the vignette around this kickass car!I'm loving the shimmery red and gold décor!Damn, it's like all of my favorite things... Cocktails, gambling and dessert. I see no problem with that. Do you?
