    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ FLASH BACK: The Bridal Party Breakup

    ***I was thinking about this crazy chick the other day, so I thought I would share this insane story with you again. The reason I thought about her? Well, I had a moment like, "I wonder whatever happened to whatsherface..." Know what I mean? Then I realized that I didn't give a shit.***

    February 5, 2013:

    It's the truth hurts Tuesday brideys! And boy do I have a story for you! The best part of this story (actually, more like the worst)? It happened to me. And looking back, I definitely should have and could have handled it better, but frankly I feel like I never should have been in this situation in the first place. Actually, that's why I am choosing to share this story with you so that if you are in a similar position as a bride-to-be, you won't do what this bride did. I mean, she completely put me on the spot and forced a reaction from me that was kind, but not truthful. Any idea where I am going with this brideys?

    Here's a hint... Don't ask a very new friend (new as in you've known her for about two months) to be your MAID OF HONOR! It's a hell of an honor and a huge responsibility, so if you don't know somebody well enough, then you might not realize just how much you are asking of them. Instead of the honor that it should be, it may feel more like entrapment to your friend, and not only that, but she'll probably feel very, very uncomfortable.

    Perhaps some of you are thinking, "What's wrong with asking a new friend to be in your wedding? Obviously she felt as though she had a strong enough connection with you to even ask." To which I would answer, "Yes, we definitely had a solid connection." But... "I didn't know her the way a friend should know a friend if they are accepting an invitation of such magnitude.  And, she didn't ask me to be in her wedding, she asked me to be her maid of honor!"

    So... what'd you do BB?

    I have to admit, this happened before I was the well seasoned professional I am now (Bridey, I may have a trashy mouth, but I am definitely a pro!). Sooooo.... I didn't handle it well. I was mortified. I said "yes" initially, and it took me a week to politely decline her maid of honor invitation, and get out of being downgraded to a bridesmaid too... Yeah... I wanted completely out of this wedding. Obviously, this was not a easy conversation to have, but I knew I would ultimately let her down in the long run, so therefore it was important for me to be up front with her before I got in even deeper. 

    But, how did you do it? How'd you get out of it?

    I took her out for a few cocktails, sucked down a giant martini, and laid it all out there. I know this will surprise you bridey, but I happen to be very blunt... HA! But, really I am. And if she hadn't caught me so off guard initially (at work, and right before we met up with a few girls for lunch), then I would like to think that I would have politely declined and let it go. That said I was absolutely determined to handle the bridal party breakup better than I had handled the proposal. When I told her how I felt, I was careful to explain myself without being a bitch, and to let her know that I had no intention of even being in the wedding. I would certainly be in attendance, but the responsibility of being part of the bridal party was too much, and I didn't think it would be fair to her.

    Honestly, she handled it really well. Much better than I had expected, and we ended up having a pleasant evening together. Needless to say, the friendship took a hit, but I felt and still feel strongly that I made the right choice.

    So, bridey... if you are in the "la-la love" stage with a new friend, awesome. Have fun and enjoy! But, let me be the one to tell you that if you are thinking about asking her to do the "honor" of being in your wedding, then use caution. I know it seems counterintuitive, but consider the impact on your newborn friendship if her reaction isn't not "yes". Got it?

    What do you think? Have you ever been in a similar position?

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Badass Halloween-Inspired Styled Shoot

    I love this shoot. I love this shoot for all of the stunning details, the gothic vibe, the "Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil" inspiration, and because of the model groom, Brandon Flowers. Just kidding! But, I swear to God this guy looks so much like him, that I about fell over when I saw the pics for the first time. What, bridey? You don't know who he is? WTF!? He's the lead singer of The Killers! Duh... I LOVE The Killers! Anyway... This styled shoot is damn magnificent. It's badass. It's borderline creepy (in an awesome way of course!).

    Bridey, if you're looking to rock something different than a white wedding (um, just wait until you see the black wedding cake!), then allow yourself to get lost in this pile of inspiration, "dripping with decadent details and tons of vivacious color"! Yeah, totally had to steal that line from photographer, April Amodeo! Enjoy this masterpiece you are about to embark on, bridey, brought to you by an incredible group of vendors. I totally did!

    Check out this groom, and now go Google image pics of Brandon Flowers."The bride was adorned in a sumptuous headpiece with hand-sculpted red satin roses and black lace-covered fans sparkling with Swarovski Crystals."That cake is absolutely phenomenal! I'm completely obessed with it!Stunning and vibrant!Fuck me, that's an amazing bouquet. I love all of the different texture elements here... The design of the linen, the sparkle of the charger plates, the voluptuous flowers...OMG. Is that a watermelon?A MAZ ING. A FUCK ING MAZ ING!!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Tim Burton Inspired, Super Glamorous Winter Wedding 

    As we gear up for Halloween, I thought a wedding chock-full of goodies was definitely the way to go. Although, instead of filling your bellies, this kickass wedding will absolutely fill your mind with a ton of eye candy! And, candy is candy, right? Well... this candy won't make your wedding dress tight! It will only make your brain swell with cool ideas and inspiration.

    Bridey, if this post screams Tim Burton to you, it's because Lynzy and Ian are huge fans of his, and worked hard to incorporate his wild imagination into their glamorous wedding. And, you know what? They nailed it! Seriously, just wait until you see the dessert spread and all of the fucking awesome "décor". Plus, I think you're going to die when you see Lynzy's shoes.

    Lovin' the invitation and that bouquet! Right? Holy shit with that bouquet!!!Best boutonniere ever!DYING over Lynzy's birdcage veil and the bridesmaids fabulous headpieces!RIGHT?!!! Aren't those red shoes are insane? And the bottoms? Holy fuck!!!Lynzy thinks that Tim Burton writes the most romantic love stories.Let's make it official!Lynzy and Ian are a damn sexy couple.

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ FLASH BACK: Gynecologically Speaking

    ***I needed a good laugh today. Soooo... I thought I would share this post from 2011 not only because it's funny, but because it's educational too. And because my mom was probably the only one reading Bitchless Bride back then, I'm assuming that most of you probably haven't seen this masterpiece. Enjoy and learn, bridey!***

    December 22, 2011:

    So, I’m just sayin’… I know that we don’t talk about the amount of sex that everybody has on his or her honeymoon, but we should. I know that you will be busy relaxing and reminiscing about your perfect wedding day on that beautiful tropical island you have jetted off to, but you will also be busy getting busy too. So be proactive! Make an appointment with your gynecologist before your trip, and ask him/her to give you a script for a UTI infection (that you fill prior to your trip) to take with you. There is nothing worse then being away from home, especially in a foreign country, and having an issue “down there”. Better safe than sorry!

    And on that note… don’t forget to take your pills, insert your birth control, use a condom, etc. You don’t want to come back from your honeymoon with more then a tan.
