    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Ten Things I Hate About "I Do"

    "Oh my God, you have the coolest job! I'm sure you could write a book about all of the stuff you see!" *wink* Since all of my non-wedding industry friends always seem to think that my job is nothing but rainbows and unicorns, I thought I would share ten things I hate about "I do". And since I'm not really into sugar coating, a few of these items may hit a nerve, so brideys, I suggest you listen up and learn from this instead of being offended. Because I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God. If used correctly, then what I am about to share with you can quite possibly change the entire course of your wedding, if not your life. Okay... a touch dramatic, but...

    1. Cheap brides. It's one thing if you don't have the money, and need to scale back. I totally get it!! But, cheap for the sake of being cheap is fucking annoying. I want you to remember something, bridey. You get what you pay for, and if you hire the cheapest vendor or nickel and dime the ones you hire to their breaking point, then most likely you will be disappointed with the outcome. If you're cheap with them, then odds are? They're going to be cheap with you.

    2. Two words. Dry weddings. WHAT the fuck? I have planned weddings of all different religions, backgrounds, etc., but imposing your personal tastes and/or beliefs on your guests is rude. At least have a cash bar (cringe) and make your guests pay for their booze. But, not offering it? Inconsiderate.

    3. Which leads me to my next point. Vegan weddings. REALLY? Enough! Be vegan! Be healthy! That's awesome, bridey, but pretty please with sugar on top, don't subject your guests to tofu if they aren't interested. Look, I have a lot of vegan friends, but when we're together they certainly don't impose their "stuff" onto me. So, please, bridey, don't do it at your wedding. If meat makes you ill, I totally get it. Just make it a lovely vegetarian wedding, and skip the vegan.

    4. Get a grip on your expectations. Drop the fairy tale act. You want magic? Then marry the right man. PERIOD.

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Rustic, Chic, Backyard Wedding… Bitchless Style

    I love it when people classify weddings as “rustic”. Like, obvi I know what it means, and I LOVE a good rustic wedding, but when I think rustic, I think of tents (like the ones you need to pitch… OMG it’s all I can do not to take this to a raunchy level, anyway…), I think canoes, and I think fire pits and the like. Right? I definitely don’t think about a kickass wedding filled with incredibly unique DIY aspects, vintage cars, old trucks, bocce and a backyard tent with a chandelier. Do you? Well, now you will, bridey!! Because Larissa and Richie just took “rustic” to a whole new level. A chic level. A cool level. A level that screams FABULOUS level!

    Another cool aspect of this wedding? Scroll down, bridey. It’s clear that Larissa and Richie’s guests are having a fantastic time! I mean, I know that weddings should be all about the bride and groom, blah blah blah, but Larissa and Richie definitely put some thought into their entertainment and décor, and thought about what would make everybody happy, not just the two of them. And I dig it. Seriously, it’s what Bitchless Bride is all about! So, bridey, if you’re looking for rustic, chic wedding inspiration (look no further…Nope, I can’t say that…I sound like a used car salesman!) put your mouse, thumb or arrow to good use and have some fun!

    Lovin' the lock and key! Such a fun idea!There are so many aspects about this pic that make me melt... Love how Richie is holding the veil! And the look on Larissa's face? OMG...I swear I could see this photo in a magazine!I mean... THIS is awesome!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ This Bridey's Got Sauce...

    Sarah and Joel. Joel and Sarah. I love them. I love them together, and I love them individually. I love Sarah's birdcage veil, tattooed sleeve, purple hair and stunning wedding dress. At the same time, I love Joel's red hair, sexy beard and grey and cornflower blue tuxedo. But, most of all, bridey? I love the sparks I see when you put these two awesome individuals together. Seriously, they are definitely sparkalicious. And you know what else? So is their wedding.

    According to Nicki Hufford Photography, Sarah and Joel's wedding was chock full of color, love, humor and laughter. And the photographs don't lie... Scroll down, bridey, scroll down and not only will you see amazing photographs, but you'll also see what it means to have a wedding that is FAB and FUN! 

    Sarah's purple hair is rockin' my world! So understated, yet gorgeous at the same time.Have you ever seen clouds like that? I mean, other than in The Simpsons?Sand ceremony under a beautiful arch.L.O.V.E. This might be one of my favorite wedding photographs ever!Bhaaaaa! That's funny!Lovin' the humor! Clearly, this bridal party is having fun!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ The Key to Understanding Your Food and Beverage Minimum

    “I just feel like they weren’t honest with me from the get-go.” Said my very pissed off bride. To clarify, “they” are the venue where she is getting married, and she feels “lied to” because she is “light years” away from the agreed upon food and beverage minimum (determined before I came into the picture) in her contract. The reason I want to make it clear that I wasn’t there for the food and beverage minimum discussion is because had I been at the initial site appointment with the venue, I would have intervened and clearly stated that while the food and beverage minimum is $30,000 (for example), it’s quite likely that she will exceed said minimum. Not only do you have to consider an additional 25-30% for gratuity and tax, but let’s take a look at the word minimum [min-uh-muhm], shall we? According to dictionary.com, the word minimum is “the least quantity or amount possible, assignable, allowable, or the like.” As in… BRIDEY, YOU WILL SPEND MORE THAN THE MINIMUM.

    Once she and I dissected the exact terms of the food and beverage minimum and then proceeded to trim her overall wedding budget, letting go of a few superfluous add-ons we had planned, she simmered down. But, then it dawned on me that perhaps she wasn’t the only bride who felt taken advantage of by the venue. And I understand it, bridey, I really do. Because I used to be the one selling the space!

    Fantasy Friday ~ Destination New Orleans

    I seriously can't think of a better place for a destination wedding than New Orleans. I mean, it's unique, it's fabulous and there's shit to do! Your guests will totally enjoy your wedding, but when they are not celebrating with you, they can actually experience all that The Big Easy has to offer. Seriously, your guests can walk down the street eating a po-boy and drinking a Sazerac all while listening to live music. Pretty cool if you ask me! Go Chileen and Aaron! Nice choice! 

    Sooooo.... Aaron proposed with Chileen's great-grandmother’s ring on their 8 year anniversary in Maui. Not too shabby Aaron! How do you say "Will you marry me?" in Hawaiian? Well, it goes something like this, “e Mele ana ‘oe ia’u?”. But, why get married in New Orleans? Well, in 2008 Chileen and Aaron had vacationed there to celebrate Aaron’s 30th birthday, and they loved it! Actually, they loved it so much that when they got engaged they decided that their wedding HAD to be in NO!!! 

    Love the orange flowers on the shoes, but I cannot stop gazing at her great-grandma's ring!!Unbelievable! Stunning wedding dress and insanely FAB bouquet!I love how the bridal party is watching in the background!
