    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ BB's Taking the Week Off

    I need a little break from reality. Know what I mean? I am deep into event planning, and I keep dreaming about beaches and yummy fruity cocktails, so I thought I should listen to my own advice (like I suggest to you, bridey, in my wedding planning guide), and take a break! It'll all be waiting for me when I get back, right? But, never fear, you'll definitely be hearing from me this week... Maybe even with a little news.

    See you next Tuesday!!

    XO,
    BB

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Stunning, Southern California Wedding... Rustic, DIY, and Succulents... Oh My!

    Brideys, do me a favor. I want you to scroll down and take a look under "Industry Peeps" specifically, the event designer. Notice anything? Yeah, the bride designed this beautiful wedding. Not an industry peep, but the bride!! And I cannot get over all of the kickass details she incorporated into her wedding! Seriously, I love the framed photographs you see in the opening pic, but I also love how they are hanging from the tree. 

    Soooo... Erika and Nathan got married at their private residence in Southern California. And not only do I love that they got married at their home, but I love how they took so many steps to create a marriage between their home and their wedding... Pretty fucking fantastic, right? Between the lovely DIY elements (thank you Erika) all the way down to the rustically AWESOME wedding cake, I just cannot get enough of this wedding. And neither will you.

    Gorgeous bouquet!And a gorgeous bride!Erika! I LOVE your stunning veil!!I'm sorry, but could you bust? Amazing first look pics and amazing kiss!If it weren't weird, then I'd totally hang this in my house. FAB centerpieces! Just FAB!!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Barefoot and Beautiful Bride, A Dog Named Lunchbox, and a Laid Back Groom

    I love how chill Maggie and Matt's wedding was. Like super chill. I mean... Maggie was barefoot for most of the day!! I know, right? How awesome is that? And when she needed to slip on some shoes? She just put on her lace Toms... No biggie. LOVE IT! And Matt? The dude had on khaki pants and suspenders! Now, how FAB is that? Even their dog, Lunchbox, wore a handmade bow-tie! Not only that, but these two really made their day all about their love for each other, and the love for their family and friends.

    Bridey, if you scroll down you will see all of the lovely details from Maggie and Matt's amazing wedding. They rocked organic flower arrangements, set a vintage mismatched table, drank from mason jar drinking glasses, and served Southern vegetarian food. Basically? They incorporated everything they loved into one day.... And frankly, I can't think of a better day to just that! Enjoy!

    I love that the dog's name is Lunchbox!Funny story? Apparently, the guys had no idea how to tie a bow tie.Handmade, vintage inspired bridesmaids dresses found on Etsy.Awwwwwwwww.......Hip! Hip! Hooray!!See? Maggie is barefoot! LOVE IT!!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Don't Do Me Any Favors

    "Are you fucking kidding me? REALLY?" she asked. This was the response from an overworked, underpaid and pissed off venue employee. "ALL of that for two fucking French macarons? Seriously, why do I even bother?" she asked and walked away in a huff. "Nice 'tip'."

    Brideys, as we are heading into a busy spring wedding season, I cannot stress enough how important it is to tip the vendors who work their asses off for you. I'm not saying that you "owe" them (particularly if they did not perform well or if they just plain ol' sucked), but if you are going to make like 800 demands (all the way down to the light bulb brand used in function space), and expect that your demands are met, then you know what? You DO owe them, and you better show your appreciation... with CASH. Giving them a $4.00 favor that you are giving to all of your guests? Yeah, it doesn't cut it. Actually feels more like a "fuck you" than a nice little sweet treat. It's definitely not how you should show your appreciation to anybody who has gone out of their way for you (especially if they were the ones who helped you procure said macarons!).

    Bridey, I have written about this a million fucking times, and so has The Tipping Fairy (a Vendor Vent), and even Martha Stewart has written about tipping your wedding vendors! If you pushed your vendors HARD, and they lived up to all of said demands (ahem... changing the brand of light bulbs for your wedding), then show them. Give them a nice fat envelop, write something nice, and build it into your wedding budget.

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Bitchin' Bitchless Bride & Her FAB Irish Wedding

    About a month ago, I received a pretty kickass email from a bridey named Carol. Not only is she is "obsessed" with Bitchless Bride (duh, who wouldn't be?), but Carol happens to be a Bitchless Bride. And you know how I know? 'Cause she told me. I mean, she didn't come out and tell me tell me, but what she did say was enough proof that this girl "got it". That she understood that marrying somebody is more about the person than the event. You see, brideys, Carol couldn't wait to marry her "favourite person in the world", and while there wasn't a theme or sparklers, there was love... Well, love and some pretty cool details. 

    A few words from the bride: "Over the past year I've been obsessed with your site especially, 'Vendor Rants'. As an Irish girl, I found it both bewildering and hilarious while planning our wedding, which happened on 16th November. Firstly, I just want to quickly introduce myself my name is Carol, and I finally married my favourite person in the world, Kevin.We are both from Derry (in Ireland) it's the best place ever if I don't say so myself lol. We are going out just over 13 years now (we can't remember a specific date but it was a Sunday... I remember the hangover in work the next day).

    Clearly not the normal "getting ready" pics that we've all become accustomed to seeing!Love these bridesmaids dresses, and I am dying over the pockets!! Baby's breath bouquets! LOVE how gigantic they are!More from Carol: Our wedding didn't have any 'out of this world' themes, but we thought it was cool and we and everyone else enjoyed it. I've attached some photos from the day; I know they may not be blog worthy but we both know we don't take good photos (sad but true), but we think they show how laid back the day was for us, and I thought you might like to have a wee look maybe while some bridey is annoying the hell outta you my Kermit onesie will make you smile. Anyhoo I hope you like them."
    What a fabulous seating plan! Super unique!I mean...I can't stop looking at the pink chandeliers!I like your style, Carol! (And your nails!) A bit of Guinness before putting on your sneakers and bustin' a move!I totally wish I could have been there!!
