    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ A Heartfelt Confession from Your Overly Dedicated Wedding Planner

    Perspective. There's that fucking word again. Ugh. Perspective. Sometimes even I hate that word because it really does shake the bullshit out of a situation and forces you to see the truth. And, as we all know, the truth really does hurt sometimes. Without giving too much away about myself, recently I went through somewhat of a difficult time, and although the dust has settled, I had the opportunity to reevaluate what's important in my life, and also, what's important your life too, bridey. Because as I was trying to get through my "situation", there was this one bride (who was aware of what I was up against), didn't care and nearly made me throw in the towel, quit wedding planning and search for what's next.

    The most fucked up part of the story? This chick was done. Finito! She was married! She had her wedding, came back from her honeymoon and was "checking in" with me. Lovely, right? Well... No. It should have been, but it wasn't. And the crazy thing, is that her wedding day kicked ass. Every detail was executed perfectly, the family dynamics we were concerned about did not present themselves, and she (and her sig other) were quite thrilled with how the day went. So, why was she torturing me? What the fuck did she want? Well, the venue misplaced a few items. SMALL items. Easily replaceable items. And of course, she wanted me to go hunting and fight the fight. 

    Really? You want ME to call the venue for you, and have them search for the cake knife and remaining ceremony programs (even though you have an extra box of them at your house)? Really? Bridey, you KNOW that I am in the middle of a personal crisis, and yet, you want me to follow up with the venue? WOW. Listen, I get that I orchestrated your event, handled all of the details and held your hand before sending you down the aisle. But, today, please... Either hold my fucking hand or call the chick at the venue yourself. It's not like you need me to get you thousands of dollars back for a shitty experience. You're asking me to care about a fucking cake knife, that you received as a gift... I mean... It's not a family heirloom, it's a gift from your registry. Deal with it... YOURSELF!

    It was all I could do not to lose my shit and say exactly what I was thinking without exercising self control and filtering the bitch out of my voice. But, I did. And it was hard. Because, bridey, I hate to say it, but half of you will end up in divorce court, and you'll want to use that fucking cake knife to stab your sig other in the balls. And the other half of you? Well, you'll have your fair share of shit to deal with too. Real shit. Life or death shit. And that cake knife? You think you will still care about that stupid fucking cake knife? No, you won't. You will care about each other. You'll fight for each other. You'll fight the fights that are worth fighting for. You'll sleep on a chair next to hospital bed, and pray. Or maybe you'll sleep in a hospital bed, and pray for a brighter future. You'll learn that anything can happen at any moment, so appreciate what you have TODAY. Right? Kinda puts things into perspective, doesn't it?

    Bridey, your wedding day is nothing more than a symbol of what's to come. I've thrown extravagant, over the top weddings, and I've thrown super simple weddings... And the ones I love the most? The weddings that represent the couple. The weddings that are heartfelt and see beyond the bullshit of "the day". These B+Gs get that their wedding day is only the first step towards whatever future they make of it together. Right?? So, now do you understand how little I care about that fucking cake knife? Can you see why that phone call had me thinking about what else I could possibly do with my life that didn't involve taking care of anybody else besides the people I love and myself?

    Bridey, please... Let my confession be food for thought when you find yourself stressing over the stupid shit. In the end? It really doesn't matter. All that matters are the two of you...

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Stunning Outdoor Ceremony & One Hell of a Party at The Golden Nugget!!

    Bridey, you know me. Therefore you know that I am completely exhilarated (actually, perhaps a bit obsessed) with Vegas or any posh casino for that matter. So, when I saw Rebecca and Sandy's Atlantic City wedding, there was no question that I just had to share it with you. And, not just because of the whole gambling, casino thing, but because I love that the B+G tied the knot on the marina, stole some GORGE shots on the beach, gambled in the casino and then partied all night long. Seriously, they were able to bring so many elements into their wedding day, so not only was memorable and fun for them, but fun for the guests too! LOVE IT!

    By the time you are done taking in the cool deets, you will be seeing blue. No, really, you will! From the blue shoes (on both the B+G), blue ties, blue finger and toe nails, blue flowers, blue water, etc... I really mean it when I say this wedding will leave you feeling blue (but, in a good way, obvi!!). Enjoy!

    I cannot get over the gorgeous bead work on Becca's wedding dress.Um... LOVE the fucking FAB blue wedding shoes!Amazing bouquet of flowers, and I love the photograph. Such a lovely way to pay tribute to a loved one who has passed without getting sad.OB SES SED with the blue! OBSESSED! And, I am lovin' the breast cancer awareness cuff links.Awwwww.... So cute!We did it!!! Romantic and fun... A perfect blend!Roll 'em baby!!Oh yeah!!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ An Elegant, "Salvageable", Sweet Home Chicago Wedding

    I can't stop looking at Molly's eyelashes (and her gorge cleavage, right?)! Seriously, this is such a beautiful shot of the bride and groom that I can't stop noticing the subtle, and not so subtle details! Bridey, Molly and Paul nailed it! Their winter wedding kicked ASS! And, as you get to know them through these magnificent photographs, you'll see what I mean. They got married at Salvage One, a swanky storefront in Chicago, whose main focus "works to preserve and pass on our history", but also rocks amazingly cool space for edgy weddings and events. 

    But, beyond the paramount venue, Molly and Paul threw a fantastic party! Great food, great booze and a ton of dancing! I seriously think there was some break dancing happening (I mean... the groom is laying on the dance floor at one point, so clearly, I'm only left to assume that it was due to break dancing!!)! Enjoy the party, bridey!

    I'll take the earrings and the shoes please!Molly! I love that you are smiling in every single picture!!That BHLDN dress is STUN NING!!! Looks gorge on you!C'mon peeps! Drinks before we hit the lakeshore for pics? Warm us up a bit?Love the foggy Chicago skyline behind them!I know it's near the zoo, but I have no idea what it's called.... Super cool structure.Fabulous!Simple, yet there is so much to look at...OMG. Paul, you're a cutie!Shut the fuck up! OMG! Love the cool, raw space, the wood tables and the mismatched chairs!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ ***FOLLOW UP POST*** - A Sometimes Sweet, Sometimes Snide Jekyll and Hyde Bride

    Bridey, have you found yourself curious as to how the Jekyll and Hyde bride I told you about in December made out? Has she gotten married? Did I fire her? How was her wedding day? You know, the bride who was SUPER sweet and awesome one second, and then a crazy bitch the next? Well, if you weren't you curious, then you should be because it's juicy. It's meaty. It's dirty. Actually, it's fucking nasty. And, the reason why I'm sharing it with you is so you can learn how NOT to behave if you have issues (or imaginary issues) on your wedding day. Because, bridey, how you handle yourself post-wedding is just as important as you you handle yourself during your wedding planning, particularly if you're looking for compensation.

    Unfortunately (for all of us), this bridey bitch was not in a state of euphoria on her wedding day. Quite the contrary... She was emulating Mr. Hyde with her bitchy, self-important bullshit attitude. So, needless to say that her wedding day didn't end well for anybody; vendors and bride alike. Frankly? It was a shitshow (TOTALLY wished I fired her in December!), and the only one to blame is the bride herself. She single-handedly ruined her wedding day with her crazy 'zilla behavior and demeanor. The worst part is that after all of the hard work that went into planning the specifics for "her day", this bridey will have a skewed perception of how her wedding day actually went down. Because the way I see it, there is nothing I'd have done differently. And, I'm not being defensive (let's just say, I'm not the one who took the brunt of the crazy), just honest.

    Which leads us to today. She is looking to be compensated for her "losses" (still trying to figure out exactly what those losses are!), and if she doesn't get her way, she is threatening scathing reviews "all over social media oulets". Come the fuck on! Right? Instead of having a conversation, she's hiding behind email, and threatening everybody in her path! WHAT the fuck? SHE is exactly why I wrote "What if Your Wedding Vendors Reviewed You, Bridey"...

    It's not in my nature, but I am dying to "leak" her three page email (somewhere where her employer will hopefully see it) listing how she was "wronged" on her wedding day. Does she really think that threats and her loony antics will get her what she wants? I doubt it. In fact, I think it will have an adverse effect... Or at least, I hope it does. 

    Bridey, there you have it... I will write a follow up post, to my follow up post, as the bullshit progresses. Godspeed (for all of us).

    Fantasy Friday ~ Sheet Music Flowers, Butterflies, Cool Ass Shoes, a Hog Roast and FAB Music

    Bridey, imagine being in the midst of your wedding planning, and then realizing that you can't possibly squeeze everything you wanted to do into one day. Yikes!!! What's a girl to do? How do you move past this problem? It's easy, really... Just have a two day wedding!! Right? That's what Steph and Jock did! They hosted their ceremony and a BBQ on Friday night, and then had a fucking awesome party on Saturday night. Um... Like the kind of fucking awesome party which included a hog roast and live music! Sounds pretty cool to me! See? There's always a solution if you look for a different angle, bridey! 

    Jock’s a musician so obviously, the music had to be kickass, but why not include his love for music within the theme? Right? Seriously, just wait until you see the flowers made of sheet music and snack bowls made from old vinyl records! Totally love it! Have fun with this one, bridey! I did!

    I love this stunning flower bouquet!Holy shit with the shoes!!!OMG! They all have awesome shoes!!!
    Drink up Steph!Best pic ever!Lovely passionate kiss...HAHA!Smoke 'em if you got 'em!From the bride: "My family told me when my gran died that every time I saw a butterfly it was her checking in on me."

    Shake it baby!!Ready to get your party on??Oh yeah with the Converse!LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.So much fun!! Thanks for sharing with Bitchless Bride!!!
