    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ When Obama Fucks Up Your Wedding, and Other Unexpected Obstacles

    I wasn't going to do it. I was going to steer clear of this one. Seriously, because Bitchless Bride is not a blog in which we share our political views, and voice our opinions and/or disdain for government bullshit. But, this is not political, it's just bullshit. And the more I thought about it, and the more I reread the article on Bloomberg (I believe they broke the news first) the more I couldn't let it go. I had to throw in my two cents about how Obama just had to "play through" his golf game even if that meant that bride, Natalie Heimel, and groom, Edward Mallue Jr., both U.S. Army captains, had to move their wedding ceremony last minute. Seriously? What the fuck, Obama?

    I've read that the President had no idea Natalie and Edward were planning their wedding ceremony at the 16th tee box at the Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course. But, it all seems a bit fishy to me. NOBODY at the White House knew? Really? I find that hard to believe considering that the entire world knew that President Obama and his family were vacationing in Hawaii, and that the dude loves to plays golf on vaca... Just sayin'... And, when he (or one of his people) found out that two Army captains were planning on exchanging their vows on said golf course, perhaps the right thing to have done would have been to wait for the ceremony to end or skip the 16th hole altogether.

    The other piece to this that really bothers me from a wedding planning standpoint? The disclaimer from the caterer responsible for arranging the ceremony with bride and groom. It states that if the president is in town, then "last-minute shuffling" (of the ceremony location) is a possibility. So, can somebody please tell me why they weren't proactive...

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ An Elegant, Laid Back NYC Wedding

    Here we go again... Another beautiful couple and another beautiful wedding. Seriously, how lucky am I that I get to share this fabulous wedding with you, bridey?!! And the coolest part about this wedding is the couple! While Christina and Andy's wedding is super fance, you can totally tell that they are super laid back. Their wedding definitely reflects who they are... See, bridey? You CAN have it all! This wedding is fucking fantastic, the details stunning and the couple is awesome. Just scroll... See it for yourself! As you recall from yesterday, I wrote Designing My Dream Bride, and clearly, Christina falls into my "dream bride" category.

    So, Andy is from Switzerland and quite a few guests made the trip overseas to attend the wedding. As a tribute, you'll see some Swiss references (check out the cake and the flag on the back of the boat!) strewn throughout. TOTALLY LOVE IT! Bridey, it's important to weave who you are as a couple into your wedding, and Christina and Andy certainly rocked it! Enjoy this fucking FAB wedding!!

    Shut the front door! Just wait until you see the full length pic!Christina... THAT DRESS!!!! You look HOT HOT HOT!I'm dying over that little boy's suit! And the flower girl? Holding hands!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Designing My Dream Bride

    The other day, a friend of mine asked me who my dream bride would be. Huh? Of course, I immediately asked if she was serious or if she was fucking with me. She assured me that she was dead serious, and then said, "if you could design your dream bride, what would "she" be like?" Oooooooo.... This was getting interesting! Right? If nothing else, it certainly got me thinking... What DOES my dream bride look like? And, with Christmas just a few days away, and millions impending proposals and engagements on the horizon, the timing of her question seemed appropriate. Just think... If even just 90% of you, brideys, read this post right after your engagement, then my job is done! So, here it goes... Bitchless Bride's Dream Bride:

    1. My dream bride would remember who she was before she got engaged! Kinda the whole point of my blog, right? Just because you're engaged, doesn't give you the right to be a bitch. Remember, what you put out there is what you'll get back. So, bridey, if you're nice to people (vendors, bridesmaids, etc.), then they will be nice to you. They will do nice things for you. They will go out of their way for you. However, if you are a total bitch, then you'll get the bare minimum from those around you. Seriously, why would your bridesmaids go out of their way for you if they are beginning to hate you? Same goes for your vendors. If you treat them like shit, why should they go above and beyond? Right? Consider this a fact.

    2. My dream bride would remember WHY she wanted to get married in the first place... Um, the dude or the chick your want to spend the rest of your life with... Your sig other! PERSPECTIVE!! See the girl in the picture? She's happy! And, you should be too! You're marrying the love of your life!! (And if you're not, then that's a whole other blog post!)

    Bridey, I eloped, and I know that eloping isn't for everybody, but all I could think of at the time was that I loved my hus, and we had a shitload of family dynamics that could have presented themselves at the worst possible time. But, no matter what? I wanted to be with the dude. So, even if we had stuck to the plan and had a big wedding, all I wanted was him...

    3. My dream bride would treat people with respect (friends, family, vendors). Piggybacking off of number one... Don't be a bitch. Treat people with respect. It's so simple and basic (human decency), and yet oftentimes it gets lost when the wedding planning gets stressful or emotions become extreme. Just remember to breathe, bridey, and be nice. It will be well worth it!

    4. My dream bride would trust me (and all of the other professionals she hired) unequivocally. She would trust that if we are working together, that I know what I am doing, and let me do it. Don't get in my way. Don't think that because your maid of honor (MOH) got married a month ago that we should listen to her (or whothefuckever). Just let me take your dream, and run with it (with established boundaries, of course)!

    5. My dream bride would skip the micromanaging bullshit. Again, you have to trust me, and let me present you with the applicable details. Bridey, your vendors are not going to share the nitty gritty with you, and honestly, you don't want to know all of the behind the scenes shit that you are missing. Just back off,

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Replacement Venue, An Almost Replacement Heart and a Love Story

    Damn. Jen and Daniel are one hell of a couple. Seriously. Talk about having to deal with their fair share of shit even before becoming husband a wife... These two strong individuals certainly make one solid couple! During the wedding planning, Jen found herself in the hospital for weeks with heart failure. Thankfully, she pulled through even without a transplant (which is absolutely AMAZING!) as her heart began to slowly heal itself. Daniel refused to leave her side, and then took on the bulk of the planning so that Jen did not have to endure the stress. And, bridey? Besides the emotional roller coaster of heart failure (oh my goodness!), they lost their wedding venue due to the asshole owners shutting their doors, and taking their money with them. WHOA... Because that's not stressful... WTF???

    Being the amazing (and quite handsome) guy that Daniel is, he reached out to Brooke of Brooke Taylor Studios, and wrote the following absolutely heartwrenching (no pun), and sincere letter: Good evening, my fiancé and I have been dealing with having to find a new venue for our wedding that we had already sent out the save the dates to. In April, my fiancé Jen got sick and ended up at UW Hospital with heart failure. She was at the top of the transplant list but her heart slowly ended up healing itself. A few weeks ago, she finally got out of the hospital and we started up planning our wedding again. I am trying my best to make sure she does not have to do much or stress since her heart is still healing. It would mean a great deal to us if you were able to do the photography for us. Our wedding date is planned to be on October 5, 2014 and will be somewhere around the greater Seattle area once we narrow down the replacement venue. Thank you so much for offering this opportunity.

    Stunning wedding dress, and truly beautiful bridesmaid dresses (you don't hear that too often!)...
    I mean... Holy shoes!!!
    Passing notes...
    I think dogs in weddings is on the rise. How cute is this pooch?!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Fat Bottomed (Whaaa?), Nashville Wedding

    Anybody who gets married at a place called Fat Bottom is officially my hero! No really, as a girl with a voluptuous bottom, I have a deep respect for the name of the establishment and what it represents. Plus, any bride who has the balls to write Fat Bottom on her invitation? Fucking rock star in my book! Right? Anyway… strewn throughout their photographs are amazing elements of nature (and nurture for that matter), from the headpieces, to the succulents to the gorgeous flowers… Also inspired by woodland creatures, Ellen and Ben worked hard to incorporate the people they love, the city they love and the décor they love all into one day. And while I might not be a nature kind of girl, this beautiful wedding can easily convert even the biggest city dweller to a tree hugger! Just wait until you see their wedding cake! Actually, their wedding cakes!

    Ellen and Ben were married in East Nashville (I’ve never been to Nashville, but I’m totally dying to go!!). Anyway, according to their photographer, Ellen and Ben were super cool to work with and fun too! From impecible style to the warmth felt through the pics, hold on to your bottom, bridey, and get inspired!

    I LOVE how every.single.bridesmaid is wearing a headpiece. 
    Ellen, your dress is FAB!!!
    Check out the bouquet!
    I mean... Happen to notice her dress? And those eyes!! OMG.
    That's what I'm talkin' about! I could have posed for this one!
    Holy shit with the cake(s)!!! 
    Notice the E+B? I loved sharing this Fat Bottomed, Nashville wedding with you!
