    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Button Pushing Couple & a Gorgeous, DIY, Texas Wedding

    If you know my hus and me, then you know that part of what makes us tick as a couple is that we 100% push each other's buttons. We both know exactly where to push to get a rise out of the other. And, sometimes we push in good fun, and sometimes we push because we are intentionally trying to annoy the shit out of each other. But, either way, there isn't a soul alive whose buttons I'd rather push than his. Because it works. Because, we work. And Jacqelyn and Brady? They're the same way. Total button pushers. 

    Bridey, don't ever let someone make you second guess your relationship simply because they don't get it. As long as you and your sig other get it, then fuck the rest of them. Seriously, look up. See how Brady is looking at Jacqelyn? Does anything else really matter? No. And you know what? Their wedding is super GORGE! So, enough preaching outta me... Go scroll and enjoy!
    I mean... This is too cute!
    Yeah... Jameson is always good!
    Jacqelyn... WOW! That is a sensational floral headpiece! OMFG!!!
    Get out all of your crazies now, kiddos!!
    Whoa... I thought Jacqelyn's headpiece was amazing... But, these two? So super cute!
    Brideys, this is how you want your sig other to look at you during your ceremony... As if nothing else exists; as if you two are the only ones in the world at that moment in time.
    Push my buttons is what I say! 
    Jacqelyn and her bridesmaids were down to the wire finishing the centerpieces (on the wedding day) even after working all day, and night. It was worth it, but sometimes DIY can make you cry!
    Best.Day.Ever.
    This little girl has got some serious gumption. She's definitely on a mission. And, she's beautiful!
    Thank you Jacqelyn and Brady for sharing your kickass wedding with Bitchless Bride!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ 10 Ways Your Mom Can Ruin Your Wedding Day

    A few years ago, I wrote this this piece for the Huffington Post, and the reason I'm reposting it today is that I heard a horriffic MOB story and felt an overwhelming need to post this article. Bridey, there is a ton of shit that you will have to overcome during your wedding planning and sometimes even on your wedding day... Hopefully, your mother won't be one of them.

    *******

    I'm not a mother of the bride (MOB) hater, but even with that disclaimer, I guarantee that this article will not make me very popular amongst you moms. Actually, I'm pretty confident that after I spill these particular beans, I'm probably going to have every MOB emailing me messages stating their disappointment (such a mom word); accusing me of crossing that line of basic respect for our parentals, but based on my experience, I feel like it is my responsibility to share these beans with all of you brides-to-be so that you actually enjoy your wedding day.

    Keep in mind, bridey, the only reason I am privy to this list is because I've witnessed it. That said, if you know what to look for, then at least you can consider yourself forewarned, and not let the crazy MOB get you down.

    1. Mom notices the little things that you never would have seen in your euphoric wedding day state, and keeps telling you about them. For instance, your menu cards are not quite center, one of the bridesmaid dresses is too tight, there's a place setting missing at table 24, blah, blah blah.
    2. Mom will not stop talking shit about your dad's new girlfriend. "How could he have brought her here? I mean, on such a special day for the family."
    3. Mom is constantly telling you to reapply your lipstick, "for the sake of the photographs, honey."
    4. Your mom? She's downright hammered. Must have been because of your dad's new girlfriend. Somebody really needs to pry the Chardonnay out of her hands. 
    5. I give you brideys a lot of shit about keeping your wedding planning in perspective, and not being a crazy bitch on your wedding day. But, today? Well, today it's your mom who is the bridezilla. She's an attention whore. She's a diva. She's a total bitch, demanding attention from anybody who will listen. She's out of control.
    6. Mom keeps referring to your wedding as "her day," even at the ceremony.
    7. Mom invited several guests you didn't even want at the wedding, and is off "entertaining" them while your photographer is trying to get a few family shots.
    8. She's a control freak. She keeps telling your vendors what to do, when to do it and basically, how to do their jobs. 
    9. She is following you around reminding you not to drink too much... "You want to remember everything about your wedding day, honey. I'd hate to see you drink too much and have your memories get muddled."
    10. You totally caught her taking a fingerful of the icing on the cake, and all she said is that no one will notice. Whaaaaa??!! (True story!)

    Brideys, as a straight shooter, and as somebody who always has your back, consider yourselves forewarned. The best way around a poorly behaved MOB on your wedding day? Simply ignore her bad behavior (don't feed it), enjoy your new husband and have a good time! Got it? Good! Stay Bitchless!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Kristin & Erin... A Bit Little Country & A Little Bit Rock 'N Roll  

    Kristin and Erin are madly in love. OMG, I seriously LOVE writing that! Because that's how it should be, bridey! I mean... If you're not madly in love, then what's the point of all of this? Melissa, their talented photographer, mentioned that these two were totally and completely in love with each other, and it showed in the photographs. And you know what, bridey? You will not be disappointed. It's apparent that they are crazy about each other, and the photos really do prove it (and there is a ton of amazing DIY elements, and straight coolness too!!)!

    They got married on a ranch outside of Loveland, Colorado. And, holy shit, just wait until you see the incredible view of the mountains, and the breathtaking rolling hills and countryside. Kristin and Erin love to camp, fish and ride horses together, so their venue is perfect. But, what I love the most? The mashup of both of their styles captured in their wedding. Don't let me spoil it... See for yourself! 
    LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.  
    Um, totally lovin' the black accents to go with Kristin's Sottero and Midgley gown.
    Here I am!!! Totally something I would do!
    Melissa: While walking each of them out to the first look separately they both told me in the exact same words, "I think I'm going to throw up." They were so anxious being away from each other. The feeling clearly disappeared the second they saw each other, and their first look was one of the most emotional and beautiful I've ever captured.
    Kristin's mom did all of the bouquets and Kristin added paper flowers made from pages of her favorite book, Harry Potter.
    I love that all of the bridesmaids dresses are different.
    That stunning entrance (to the ceremony) was made by Erin's grandmother. AND... Erin made the arch at the altar! Talented dude!
    Erin... The look on your face. OMFG.
    Vows!!!!!! Love it!
    Such a beautiful shot with the mountains in the background.
    If you know me at all, then you know that I am a HUGE fan of stripes. So, when I saw the striped linen? I immediately fell in love! (BTW, their table numbers were album covers from their favorite bands.)
    FAB Adventure Time cake topper!
    Kristin & Erin, thank you for sharing your lovely wedding wtih Bitchless Bride!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Bridey, Five Ways Not to be a Nightmare Disguised as a Daydream

    Yup, I totally just stole a line from Taylor Swift, but why come up with another awesome line when one already exists? Right? Anyway, the point is, right now, so many of you are recently engaged (ahem... Christmas), and while I truly believe that you don't think you're a nightmare, inevitably, the majority of you? Yeah, you're going turn into a fucking nightmare, and totally think you're a dreamboat. The fix? Well, leave that to me. Here are five ways to avoid turning into your very own nightmare disguised as a daydream:

    1. Bridey, remember that just because you are getting married doesn't mean that everyone else is. All of your friends and family? Well, they're probably in different phases of their lives, and therefore it shouldn't be surprising to you that after the allotted "honeymoon" phase of your engagement, you will lose their undivided attention. Because some friends? Well, some are jealous of what you have, some are having babies, some are getting divorced, and some just don't give a shit about your wedding! So, bridey, remember that this is your phase, and not everyone is in it with you. 

    2. Be a good listener. Those phases I just mentioned? Well, your friends and family will probably want/need some air time once you've finished talking about what's on your mind. Yes, bridey, you're newly engaged and dying to talk and obsess about every painstaking detail of your wedding day, but your friends have shit happening in their lives too. So, listen! And care! Give them the floor once in a while. Breathe. It's not about you all of the time...

    3. Uh-oh... The P word! Um, I'm talking about perspective!! Yup! You're wedding is one day out of your entire life, bridey. One.fucking.day. And there's a ton of shit you'll probably have to overcome with your partner after that one day. Personally? I dealt with nearly losing my hus to pulmonary embolisms (less than a year after we were married). And then there was the whole IVF journey. What a shitshow... (Yeah, you spend all of your 20s trying NOT to get pregnant, and when you're finally ready, you can't! WTF?) And then several ups and downs thereafter... So, while I look back at my wedding day fondly, I usually find myself reflecting on the marriage, and our concrete foundation, not the day.

    4. You don't know shit. You are new to this whole wedding planning bit, so quit pretending like you know everything. Do your research. And, no that doesn't mean "pin" your research, I mean really do your research, bridey. Research your wedding as if you're going to spend the equivalent of a down payment for a home on one day... Oh wait... You are! So, own it bridey! Own the shit out of your wedding! Know what you're getting yourself into. Make a point of understanding what things cost in the industry. Hire professionals to help you do so. Either way, educate yourself, and do it honestly! Act as though there was a price tag on every pin. 

    5. Be fucking nice... to everyone. Because, bridey, in my world? You are a nightmare first, and then, if you're lucky, you become my daydream. And, if you're nice and genuine? Then people (inside of the industry and out) will genuinely want to help you plan your wedding. They will care about the details, they will care how you feel about the linen or food or wedding cake, and most of all, they will care about you! But, if you treat everyone like crap, then you will get crap in return. 

    Got it?

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ An Unfussy, Super Classy, Completely Bitchless Wedding

    Wanna know why I fucking love Sara? Because when Sara envisioned her wedding, she wanted an "unfussy" (my new fave word), stress free day with lavender accents + friends and family. Period. And, that's exactly what Sara and Chris' wedding day was all about. No fuss, no stress and surrounded by the people they love. Bridey, the cool thing? Their wedding definitely looked like they fussed over the details.

    With it's beautiful soft colors, perfectly arranged garden chairs, manicured grounds and a modest elegance captured throughout the entire day, I'd certainly believe that there could have been some stress while planning. But, when you marry your favorite person in the world (which is clearly evident by the pics) the little things really don't matter. Enjoy!

    WOW! The lace and beading on Sara's wedding dress is breathtaking.Totally love this pic! Still not quite sure what they're looking for though! You look quite dapper, Chris! Sara, you look like you're up to no good...The raw emotion encapsulated in this photograph just put me over the edge...Hell yeah!!!! We did it!I'm sure that the advice got better and better as the night wore on.I can't help it... This cake topper makes me laugh out loud.Such a pretty cake. I love the middle layer with the soft Swiss dots.Break it down!
    Thank you for sharing your stunningly gorgeous wedding with Bitchless Bride!!
