    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ ***FLASHBACK*** Cowboy Boots, Carrots, and a Pistol (Yes! A Pistol)! Just a FAB Texan Wedding!

    I really don't know where to begin with Rachael and Kirk's wedding. All I can tell you, bridey, is that everything about it screams awesome. From the vibrant colors to the stunning ceremony décor (and setting) to the cakes (yes, both of them) and the party, this wedding stole my heart!

    I mean... Just look up at that photograph of Rachael and Kirk. Could I have enticed you with a pic of the bride's cool bouquet which rocked flowers and carrots? I could have... Or perhaps the record player groom's cake? Sure... But, as I practically preach on Bitchless Bride, all of that stuff is fucking great, but it's what's seen in that picture that makes it all worthwhile.

    I've never owned (or even worn) a pair of cowboy boots... But, I must say, those look FAB!Rachael, you look adorable and beautiful all at the same time!Such a beautiful ceremony!Um, are those carrots? Yup! And they look awesome, don't they!!?Look at Kirk's eyes.According to Debra Gulbas, the photographer, "Rachael and Kirk wrote their vows with a compilation of music lines, and there wasn't a dry eye in the area. Their vows were heartfelt, emotional, and beautiful."Oh yeah! We did it!!Probably one of my favorite wedding pics ever!Yes, please! Fantastic wedding favor...Wow! Just wow! A MAZ ING groom's cake and simply stunning wedding cake!That's funny!!Don't know what to give your sig other as a wedding gift? How about a pistol? That's what Kirk gave to Rachael... AT THE WEDDING!! If this photograph was taken out of context, it could have several different meanings!Congratulations Rachael and Kirk! Definitely a enthusiastically awesome wedding!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ ***FLASHBACK*** Don't be a Bitch on Your Wedding Day! 6 Tips to Get Rid of the Bridey Bitch!

    I've written quite a bit about how to not be a bitch while planning your wedding, but it dawned on me that I haven't really touched on why it's so important not to be a bitch on your wedding day. Bridey, I think it's safe to say that your wedding day is filled with a tangled web of emotions; happiness, elation, excitement, fear, anxiety, etc.... All perfectly normal... And, sometimes when we're filled with that kind of emotion, it's easy to go one of two ways... Euphoria or bridaldemia, and it's up to you to choose the better of the two.

    The reason I'm mentioning this? Well, after an extremely busy weekend filled with two weddings, and everything you can think of in between, I realized that my very lovely brides each took on one of the two aforementioned emotions. And, frankly, I was shocked. Both were super detailed oriented, although easy to work with during the wedding planning (they must be avid readers of BB), and both had relatively supportive families. So, what made one bride go batshit crazy on her wedding day and one continue to be her fabulous self? THAT is a good fucking question!

    And while I don't have the answer, I can tell you who had a better wedding day experience. If you guessed bridey B, then you guessed right. Bridey B was relaxed and happy. She took in each and every moment of the day, totally let go of "wedding planning mode", and slipped into something much more comfortable, her wedding day. While Bridey A was argumentative with anybody who dared crossed her path. Honestly? It was strange; something I didn't see coming based on our planning experience.

    So, bridey, I got to thinking about what can we do to alleviate Bridey A from presenting herself on your wedding day, and here's what I came up with: 

    1. Alcohol. Just kidding!! Well, sort of... I hate to admit that it was the first thing that came to mind! However, if you are careful not to get piss drunk, then there is nothing wrong with a cocktail as you are getting ready to walk down the aisle. Just be sure to nourish yourself with delicious food and plenty of water, and surround yourself with your favorite ladies!

    2. Timing is everything. As a planner, I build a TON of extra time into the getting ready piece of the wedding day. I do this because inevitably there is always something (or someone) who will throw you off track, and there is nothing more stress inducing than being late. So, give yourself a lot of extra time.

    3. Breathe. Seriously. What's done is done, bridey, so freaking out about the details on the day of your wedding will get you nowhere. Simply relax and breathe. Remember, that at the end of the day (quite literally), you will have gotten married to the man (or woman) you are going to spend the rest of your life with, right? How awesome is that? YAHOO! So, don't allow your anxiety and nerves to win. It will show through in your photographs, and for what? Shit that won't matter...

    4. Let it go. Oh dear God. UGH! I just started singing that fucking song... But, perhaps Idina Menzel had a point. Bridey, you've got to let it go, and let yourself off of the hook. The wedding planning was the tough part, but it's over, and you made it! So, enjoy it! Be present because you deserve it! Take in each and every moment, because even though it took you a good year to plan this day, it will be over in a flash!

    5. Liaise. Huh? Pick your most dependable friend or family member, and have her be your liaison. Have her field the inevitable plethora of questions that arise (mostly stupid shit, but enough to cause some stress) on your wedding day. She can tell Aunt Stupid where she's supposed to be and when for photographs, not you. She can give her cell to the limo driver to call when he's ten minutes away... Etc., etc.... You get my point!

    6. Make it happen, bridey. Make yourself chill the fuck out. If you feel like you're spinning out of control, then slow your roll, grab the reins, and get your shit together. We've all had days where we refused to give into our panicked psyche, and pulled ourselves out of a rut. Right? So, do it, or forever hold your peace.

    Got it? Good! Stay Bitchless!!

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Vintage, Steampunk Elopement... Quite Simply, a Very Cool Styled Shoot

    I love this styled shoot. Like, everything about it! I love the "models" (they are girlfriend and boyfriend), I love the fantastic DIY elements, I love the creative photography... OMG! I really love everything about this shoot! Seriously, it's just so fun and clever! And, in typical BB form, I'm kind of obsessed with the cake. It's beautiful, and I found myself wishing for a fork so that I could dig in... Anyway, I love this post so much that I am going to let Veronica Rose of Roni Rose Photography tell you more about it the inspiration which lead to such fabulousness. (PS - Totally love how Roni starts the convo!!)

    RRP: "Every year I like to set up a styled shoot that reflects what the modern wedding world has become; A place for personal expression rather than a traditional template that needs to be followed. I immediately had Serena and Kent in mind as models. Serena is my tattoo artist. She is one of the most artistic people I know. My inked skin is a testament to that. During our sessions together she's spoken so fondly of her boyfriend Matt. I knew immediately that I'd love him. Matt is a chef, and one of the sweetest men I've ever met."
    RRP: "Our vision for the shoots we do are based around trying to create an artistic expression of the couple, and they made that so easy for us. These two just ooze joy and love! I also like to keep our styled shoots in the realm of attainability, rather than a large production that would be difficult to achieve during an actual elopement, so much of what you see is a DIY by yours truly."
    Serena, you look beautiful! LOVE LOVE LOVE your red lipstick!!!
    RRP: ..."the boutineer is made out of some of our old film negatives and flash bulbs."
    I think it's fair to say that the camera likes Matt. And, a chef too? Oh dear God! Serena, you're a lucky girl! 
    Let's take this outside...
    This is creepy awesome!
    So cool!
    RRP: "I used a pair of ape hanger handle bars to create an alter."
    Right? Doesn't that cake just scream, "GET A FORK!!"?
    Thank you Roni, for sharing such a kickass shoot with Bitchless Bride! I think we are all much cooler now.

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Rocky Mountain, Rustically Beautiful, Tented Colorado Wedding

    When I heard the story of how Gloria and Maggie met, I immediately pictured them in a movie. Why? Well, outside of their cinema looks, their story is pretty awesome. You see, they originally met in 2006, stayed in touch, but didn't really get together until 2013! Seven years later! I know, right? It's like they knew that if they were to get together any sooner, then perhaps it wouldn't have resulted with this STUN NING Colorado wedding! Seriously, I know that if I met my hus any sooner, we definitely wouldn't have dated! See what I mean? Total movie material!

    Anyway... Gloria and Maggie's wedding is truly spectacular. Aside from the mountain views, the thoughtful décor and the sheer joy and excitement, the deets have me in wedding planning glory. I love everything about the tablescape and the food!! So go... Get inspired, and enjoy this wedding as much as I did!
    Love the sunflowers!!
    Dying over the socks and boots under the wedding dress!
    Meanwhile, down the road... Another bride gets dressed in her wedding gown.
    I love the raw emotion captured in this photograph.
    Let's go get married!
    Love the ceremony program! And, I love how it doubles as a fan!
    Holy shit! Look at the backdrop! It almost looks fake!
    Oh yeah!!!
    Such a FAB pick!
    Bring it!!
    I love how each napkin is a different pattern!
    Simple and elegant. 
    Cheers!!!
    Fuck yeah!!!!!!
    Thank you Gloria and Maggie for sharing your beautiful wedding with Bitchless Bride!
