    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ When the Bride Knows More Than Her Planner... REALLY??

    I had to share this vendor vent with you, bridey. And, I had to put it front and center because I think it's safe to say that pretty much every wedding planner I know gets frustrated when the bride (or the couple) thinks she knows more than her planner. It's irritating. It's annoying. It's fucking grounds for dropping you as a client. Seriously, bridey, don't bother hiring a wedding planner if you're going to challenge her/his every move. Do it yourself. Be a DIY bride, and I'm not talking about making your own centerpieces; I'm talking about planning your own damn wedding.

    Written by Mrs. Peacock:

    Hello! OK, so, I love your blog. As a planner, I feel like it should be required reading for all my brides and grooms. (Ahem... Me too!!) Thanks for giving us vendors a place to commiserate.

    Anyways, one of your posts - Bridey, Don't Go Away Mad, Just Go Away!, really resonated with me.

    Yes. So. Many. Times. Yes.

    How I wish I followed this advice and my own intuition with my last bride + groom. You know those couples who think that they know how to plan a wedding better than their planner does? They often go hand in hand with the my wedding has to look exactly like this million dollar wedding but at a tiny fraction of the price couple? And so often, throughout the planning, you know that these people are going to find reason to be upset about something, so what's the point in bending over backwards to try to make them happy? The type that treat you like you are their personal assistant that they have always wanted to have just to abuse? The ones who flat out refuse to listen to your (and all the other vendors!) skilled advice, and then when things don't go according to plan (just as you told them it would) precisely BECAUSE of their own ill advised choices, they berate you for it? Yeah, it was one of those couples.

    I knew I should've walked away in the early stages but I didn't because -and here's the kicker- they were friends of mine. Friends of mine who had hidden the entitled vicious privileged brat side of them very well over the years. Friends of mine who clearly viewed the roles of Bride and Groom as tyrannical King and Queen. And yes, I've learned my lesson working with friends now. But the point is, had I just walked away from what was clearly going to be a losing situation, I could've saved myself a lot of stress, time, heartache, and unfortunately, a friendship.

    - Mrs. Peacock


    Basically, bridey? If you hire a wedding planner, then it's up to you to decide to trust her/him. Make a conscious choice to trust her/him, just as you would with any other professional you hire in any other aspect of your life. If not, then plan it yourself.

    Fantasy Friday ~ My Big, Fat, Fake & Fabulous Wedding!!

    Bridey, I don't usually share submissions that are posted on several sites, but this one? It's SO fucking good that I just couldn't help myself. Because you need to see what a little imagination and talented vendors can do for your wedding. And if you see it on Bitchless Bride or some other site, then you'll be a better bride for it! Seriously, it's that good! And, I'm that awesome for not caring about exclusivity or something close to it!

    Anyway, why a big, fat, fake wedding? Well, according to the fabulous Andie Freeman, "The bride and groom were actually already married and would be renewing their vows at 7pm in front of a crowd that consisted of ladies that would soon be tying their own knot." How cool is that?!! And, based on the chemistry between the B+G, it's quite clear that they aren't models.

    I want both of those dresses. Seriously, it's worth renewing my own vows just so I can wear these dresses!Those bouquets are so gorgeous! Right???Hi Amanda. Holy flawless makeup!Seriously! Holy fuck with the amazing flowers!!!See what I mean? That's the real thing, bridey! These two are clearly smitten!Andie Freeman: "Travis grinned as Amanda walked down the aisle for a second time to avow her love all over again. Travis and Amanda has written their own vows. As the first kiss came, the crowd let out a roar and they danced back up the aisle."Wow. Just, wow!I love the deep purple and gold! And the hot pink? AWESOME!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ When a Handsome Englishman Falls for a Jersey Girl

    If he's from England and she's from New Jersey, then how did they come to be? Well, Debbie and Adam met while working abroad in Switzerland, and haven't looked back since. I mean... Talk about making a long distance relationship work, right? They had the Atlantic Ocean between them, and their love only grew (sorry for the sappy crap, but it's true!). Fast forward to their wedding day, and apparently these two couldn't take their eyes off of each other! 

    Outside of the B+G's obvious adoration for each other, it's absolutely clear that they (and their friends) have a ton of fun together. Seriously, it's been a long time since I've seen a beer funnel, and while I certainly didn't expect to see one tucked within these beautiful wedding pics, I definitely got a chuckle when I saw what was fueling the fun! A beer funnel and a super awesome candy bar will definitely make for happy wedding guests!! 

    Damn, Debbie you look amazing! Best.shot.ever.Sniff sniff...Gorgeous arch! So simple and elegant.Give the people what they want! CANDY!! I love how they displayed the candy bar!Not really sure what the hell that photograph is all about, but Debbie seems to think it's hilarious!I see icing on Debbie's nose!Took me a second, but the dude ripped his pants! LOL! Holy shit! Um, see the beer funnel? Yup! Look up! Look down!I love seeing wedding guests having fun at a wedding!Yesssssss!Yeah, Adam and his best man are singing “You've Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'" to Debbie! Hope that's not really true! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! Thank you for sharing this fun Jersey wedding Bitchless Bride!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ A Bride's Tale of a Sexless, Shitshow of a Marriage... The Grey Area Between Cold Feet & Doubt

    Gimme my soapbox because this girl is going to do a li'l bit of preaching today. And bridey, I'm not preaching about being a bitch while planning your wedding or the 5 "must haves" for your perfect wedding day because what I am about to share with you is much, much more important. It's about doubting your way down the aisle; knowing that each step closer to the altar is a step closer to your imminent divorce. Forget Canon in D, bridey... Your head is blaring Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Your head is screaming for you to turn the fuck around and make a run for it because it's much easier to skip the wedding than file for divorce.

    Bridey "B", an old friend of mine who I've recently reconnected with, told me a story so juicy, so meaty, so, dare I say, messy (keep reading) that I immediately dropped the plan for today so that I could share her story with you. Our conversation began innocently enough... A few pleasantries, a few compliments, but, when she said that "...after marriage #1, which was a total shitshow for 10 months, I took a break from boys until I met superman", I couldn't shake it. I HAD to know more. Why was her first marriage such a short shitshow? What made the new guy "superman"? So I pressed her, and found out...

    BB: "Question... Did you have a big, glamorous wedding with husband #1?"

    Bridey "B": "Yes. Ritz Carlton ridiculous." (I KNEW it!! Total mask for the doubt!)

    BB: "Did you KNOW it wasn't right when you walked down the aisle?"

    Bridey "B": "Absolutely. I was like, 'All marriages have problems. I can handle the ones in store for me. I know this man.' Then he shit on my couch. Literally."

    BB: "O Mothafuckin' G!" (Like you wouldn't say the same thing!!)

    Bridey "B": "I could go on. He just felt like since he worked from home, clothes were optional, and toilet paper was too." (Brideys, to the outside world, this dude is impeccable! He works for fancy firm as a fancy consultant. Just sayin'... Definitely not the kind of guy one pictures doing what he did to that poor couch!)

    **After a few more graphic details about the poop incident, I asked about when/how they met and some details of their relationship.**

    Bridey "B": "He asked me for a cigarette. I gave him one... The sex was great. We traveled to far countries and ate at really fancy restaurants, and then one day, he decided that he didn't want to have sex; he was depressed."

    BB:"Um, whaaaaaa? Dear God! Sex would have helped!"

    Bridey "B": "We were already living together. I was already 30. I thought it was a phase. Turns out, he was having sex, but with strippers." (She didn't find this out until after the divorce.)

    BB: "OMG!"

    Bridey "B": "So, I married this guy who was my best friend, who wouldn't have sex with me, but that's okay, because sometimes couples don't have a lot of sex, right? My mom said, 'It sucks now, but when you're older, you'll be glad he's not chasing you around with handcuffs and lube.'" (I totally peed a little when she said this!I love funny moms!)

    **Bridey, they were together for 6-7 years before they got married. Crazy, right?**

    Bridey "B": "But, you know what happened. Brides get caught up in being brides and they're too scared to turn back." (No shit. No pun either.)

    BB: "Yup! And then in retrospect... Would have been a lot easier."

    Bridey "B": "Hard to tell whether you're going through a cold feet phase, or whether it'll work itself out in time or whether you're marrying a guy who will shit on your couch in six months." (BHHHAAAAAA!!!! I guess you never know!)

    Here's the thing, bridey, you must listen to your gut (preferably before walking down the aisle to Canon in D) no matter how uncomfortable it may be. And, it will absolutely suck. And, it will absolutely hurt. But, marrying the wrong person sucks worse. My friend, Bridey "B"? She told me that the man she is with now, "superman", is the complete opposite of the asshole she married. Why she refers to him as superman? Well, "he would rather listen and learn, than fight." Plus, he's not fucking strippers or shitting on the couch... Always a plus!

    In September of 2013, I wrote Let's Call the Whole Thing Off... How to Cancel Your Wedding (and Survive), and for good reason... Bridey, if this story is hitting a nerve, then do something about it! Because that pit in your stomach? It's not cold feet, it's doubt. And, I know it's super grey, and sometimes more white or more black, but, bridey? If you don't want to skip your way down the aisle, then it's not forever... TRUST ME! And, I know it's fucking scary. But, you are strong, and better to end it now then waste your life with somebody who you know isn't right for you. 

    So, dig deep, read my "how to" on cancelling your wedding, and then go find your superman! Got it?!!
