    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Five Ways to Get Your Parents Under Control While Planning Your Wedding

    Bridey, if you have difficult parents (and that's being nice), raise your hand. If you are looking for some refuge during your wedding planning, raise your hand. Right?!! The first step is admitting it! Because bridey, it's nothing to be ashamed of; you're not alone, trust me. Pretty much every single bride I have worked with has had some shit with her parents, and even those of you with lovely relationships deal with issues from time to time that can make your blood boil. That said, I hope that you are at the age where you've learned how to manage said issues and the litany of bullshit which can wreak havoc on your wedding plans.

    After one of my more recent conversations with a truly cray cray mother of the bride (MOB), who during the course of one conversation managed to completely undo all of progress I had made with the bride, it occurred to me that I feel like I need to share a bit of advice about how to control your parents while planning your wedding. 

    1. Manage your expectations and set boundaries, and early. Your parents (although usually it's your mom, sorry, but true) are not going to change. So, once you get engaged, agree to be a united front so that your are not putting your vendors in a position of refereeing during (or after) your appointment. Not only is it super uncomfortable for us, but it's awkward and confusing. We walk away wondering whose wishes we are suppposed to grant. Yikes! 

    2. Give your parents a really important job (outside of paying the bill). Let them choose the music for the parent dances. Or, ask them to welcome your guests. Basically, something that will make them feel involved with the planning and touched at the same time.

    3. Invite them to the tasting. But, establish (or remind them of) the boundaries prior to the appointment. Bridey, you don't have to let them choose the entire menu.

    Fantastic Friday ~ Bright Lights, Big City Wedding

    Something that I am not blessed with, is a lovely singing voice. Just ask anybody who knows me. And the worst part is that I love to sing... So, the only place I can sing where nobody will judge me (or hear me) is the shower. But, Tara, the gorgeous bride? Yeah, this chick can sing. Well. So well that she goes by the name Tara Hendricks, and if you scroll down, you'll see the newly married "Ms. Hendricks" singing a tune to her adorable new hus, Freddy. Wow! 

    It's clear by the photographs that Tara and Freddy are a super fun, outgoing couple! I already told you that Tara can sing her heart out, and Freddy (not sure if the dude can sing or not) is a true, classic hip hop fan. I think it's safe to say that music definitely plays a huge part in their lives! And it certainly played a big role in their wedding! Tara and Freddy had a fabulous live band to entertain their guests, and based on the way they were dancing their asses off, I'd say this band ROCKED!!!

    Are you ready?What a stunning church!LOVE.LOVE.LOVE.Dunno where the FAB orange chairs came from, but I kinda love it!!!Um. Hi. What a fucking awesome space!Right? A MAZ ING! Beautiful room, and I am loving the lighting!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ When Red Rocks Meet Denver... A Completely Natural, Urban Wedding

    Meet Brittany and Nico. They are the FAB headless couple photographed above. And you know what? I'm not the only one who thinks they're fabulous. You see, I specifically asked that photographers submit their favorite weddings for me to post on Bitchless Bride, and the very talented Ashley Kidder of Urban Safari Photography, Ltd. gave me Brittany and Nico.

    Ashley submitted this amazing Red Rocky Denver wedding not just because of the sensational details, but because each and every vendor Brittany and Nico touched said that same thing... That they LOVED this couple! And you will fall in love with them too, bridey. Do they have impeccable taste, genius wedding color selection, outstanding DIY creations, and fucking kickass shoes (you'll see)? Yes, but you know what else? Warmth and sincerity are exuded in every single photograph.

    First of all, magnificent dress. Secondly, those awesome shoes? Brittany's sister wore them at her wedding. Hello something borrowed!Talk about stunning ranunculus in the rich yellow! Brittany, you look absolutely striking!What did I tell you about the shoes?!!! Was I right? I mean...Holy bouquet Batman!!! Specifically, the bouquet consists of dahlia, ranunculus, yarrow, craspedia, berzillia berries, vibernum berries, hydrangea, and dusty miller.Check out the scenery. Totally breathtaking.I love this photograph! Such a fun way to make sure you get a photograph of everybody who attended the wedding!Nico is wearing a cool tie.See ya' later Red Rocks! On to the more urban scenery!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ The REAL Reason Customer Service is Sometimes Lacking

    Customer service is a topic that always seems to get me a bit emotional. Be it an absolutely amazing customer service experience (like the one the hus and I received at Michael Mina in Las Vegas) or a shitty customer service experience, both have the power to make you feel incredible or plain old pissed. Right? I mean, I still haven't stopped talking about Michael Mina, and that was almost a month ago! Brideys, it wasn't just the food that made the experience sensational, it was our very knowledgeable and professional server, the sommelier who suggested a delicious bottle of wine, and the hostess who wished us a pleasant evening as we left. We felt taken care of from the moment we entered the restaurant to the moment we left. And that is how it should be, isn't it? Yes! Unless...

    Unless, you don't give it a chance. BB, what the fuck are you talking about? Well, let me tell you a story about a bride who ended up selecting the very venue which she slammed for a good month before she decided to host her wedding reception there. I know, totally crazy, right!! Well, when I met with this bride, "Samantha", I asked her where she had been looking, and what was important to her (some pretty standard questions which help me get an understanding of style and taste). And as we delved deeper and deeper into our conversation, I mentioned a FABULOUS venue that frankly, seemed like the obvious choice, and she said, "Fuck that place..." Whaaaa???? I was confused. Based on everything she was telling me, this venue was perfect.

    When I asked her to give me some more details, she told me that she would love to get married there, but she had had a terrible experience when she and her mom went to see the space. I was stunned. She went on to tell me that the person they met with was completely underwhelming and clueless and that even though they loved the venue, overall, they were turned off. 

    Clearly, Samantha saw my shock, and fell silent. I asked her who she had met with (because I know the team over there), and she said, "Some dude at the front desk." Ooooohhhhh..... Suddenly, it was all becoming clear to me. Samantha did not have an appointment. Aha! She walked in without an appointment and instead of meeting with a qualified sales manager to show her their exquisite ballroom and answer all of the pertinent questions around everything wedding, she met with one of the front desk agents who was probably busy being a front desk agent (on a busy Saturday), and anxious to get rid of her so that he could go back to the desk.

    Uh-Oh... BB Hit The Wrong Button

    Slight fuck up... I hit the wrong button and deleted my Fantasy Friday post for today. Seriously?!!! Grrrr... I'm a dumb dumb, and frankly it's too late and I'm too tired to reinvent it. Sorry peeps... I'll be sure to rock a FAB Truth Hurts Tuesday next week, and I'll try not to be a dumbass and delete it.
