    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!!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Kickass, Super Colorful, Mexican Themed Wedding

    A fabulous cake topper. A fabulous cake!! And a fabulously unique and vibrantly colorful wedding. Bridey, if you want your wedding day to be filled with intense color and fun, then copy and paste Jamie and Vincent's wedding into that binder of yours and have at it. Seriously, I am so excited to show you this one to you because of how dynamic and cool it is (and because of the beer-serving donkey, piñata filled with shots, sensational accesories, etc.), but Jamie, who is in med school full time, created the most beautiful DIY aspects for the day proving that anything is possible. Seriously, what an overachiever!

    But, most importantly... Jamie and Vincent's wedding completely tells a story of who they are as a couple and how awesome it is to create a day that is really about who you are TOGETHER!!! Enjoy! I certainly did!!

    Um. SHUT.THE.FUCK.UP with the shoes! A MAZ ING!!!And the vivacious necklace!! Totally gorge!Probably my most favorite bridesmaids dresses ever. Flattering, fun and totally wearable again without screaming bridesmaid dress.Hello dapper Vincent. You look quite handsome! Love the shoes!Jamie, you are STUNNING. I love the white wedding dress matched with all of the color you're rockin'!A beautiful day and a beautiful setting for a wedding!THAT'S how it's done, bridey!! Got to love a good dip!Yeah. Don't worry, considering my love for cake, you know I have more pics to show you!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Sentiment or Selfish? 

    I am going to hell for this one, bridey. But, not because I’m trying to be a complete asshole… I’m simply trying to defend you and your bridal integrity. Although, I know that no matter how I word this, it’s going to come out in a way that sounds shitty. So fuck it… Here it goes! The other day, I happen to catch one of the more popular wedding dress shows and even though I really wasn’t in the mood to “say yes”; I succumbed to the pressure of the challenge (of finding the right dress), and couldn’t stop watching. And, you know what? I actually learned something. No, really! I did! I learned not to take your whole fucking family wedding dress shopping with you, particularly your ailing, super opinionated grandma. See what I mean? I sound like such a jerk, but the truth hurts, doesn't it?

    Anyway… I honestly felt badly for the bride. She was quite young (23 I think), impressionable, and sweet. The problem? She and her grandma had completely different views as to what her wedding gown should be, and nana, squashed just about every dress this girl loved. Wow. Brutal. Look, I am all for respecting your elders, but at what point does that respect start turning into a dictatorship? I mean… This lovely bride moved up her wedding date in an attempt to ensure that nana was going to make it to the wedding, and instead of appreciating the sentiment, nana was on a mission to get her granddaughter to wear the kind of dress that she wanted her to wear versus what the bride (um, the one walking down the aisle) wanted to wear. 

    I don’t care how old you are, or what role you hold in the family, pulling shit like that? That’s not sentiment it’s selfish. And it doesn’t matter whether we’re talking about the wedding dress or some other wedding related issue, bridey, you must be strong enough to filter out the bullshit. Filter out the noise. Squash that shit. Tune out the constant stream of opinions. Or else your wedding starts to become about everybody else and not about you making choices that celebrate your life with your future sig other. It becomes about pleasing those who are impossible to please. So tread lightly, but politely tell them to “fuck off”.

    Right? So forgive me if I think nana was out of line. At that point, you’d think that perhaps her dying wish would have been to make sure her granddaughter was happy (even if she hated the dress) instead of making the poor girl work so damn hard to find a happy medium. So, am I an asshole for calling a spade a spade simply because of who was calling the shots? Or can we move forward, woman up and stand up for what is important to us without feeling bad about our choices??

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Summer Solstice, Stunningly Hot, Desert Wedding at a Succulent Sanctuary 

    When you exchange vows at a succulent sanctuary (um, how cool is that?!!), it's only fitting that succulents line the dinner table, right? And, seriously, look how gorgeous they are!! OMG! I'm such a sucker for succulents! Anyway, bridey, I love everything about Emily and Rob's wedding. The succulents, the trip down the hacienda stairs to the aisle, the DIY elements and dinner at the FAB French restaurant, Le Valluris. I'm like a broken record when I say that your wedding day should completely encapsulate who you are as a couple, and obviously, that means different elements for each couple.

    Emily and Rob certainly succeeded in capturing their nuptial spirit (Whoa... just go with it... No, I'm not high, just intoxicated by this lovely wedding...). Between the desert heat, the sanctuary and the La Vallauris, I'd say I have a pretty good feel of who they are as a couple even without ever having met them. So, bridey, go meet Emily and Rob and be inspired!

    LOVE Emily's dress!! So FAB and delicious!I'm a 'lil bit obsessed with the bouquet... Fans were definitely necessary. The temperature topped out at 108 degrees!!! OMG!Yup! Emily is fabulous barefoot bride! Look down!LOVE how they are looking at each other!Gotta put some sneakers on to wander around the Palm Springs desert!Entirely breathtaking!Succulent place cards/favors... I mean... Awesome! Fantastic DIY aspects!FREEZE FRAME! Who else wants one? Fuck yeah!!I'll have one of those too!I want one of everything! Cuban cigar and some Crown Royal anybody? Thank you Emily and Rob for sharing your fantastically awesome HOT wedding day with BB!
