    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Why Sharing the Wedding Plans with the Groom is Super Important 

    Grrrrrr..... I'm so annoyed. I am knee deep in the throws of wedding and wedding planning season, and suddenly I get a furious phone call from a diva groom who crawled so far up my ass that I actually thought he was gonna come out my mouth. How's THAT for a visual? Ewwwww... But, the crazy thing? I don't blame him, I blame you, bridey, for not sharing all of the pertinent information that you and I have been discussing for months with the most important person in your life!

    Bridey, you had MONTHS to tell the dude you're gonna marry some pretty important shit, oh, like I dunno... How you would prefer that he wait for you at the altar instead of walking down the aisle with his parents, or how we completely changed one of the entrée selections (because he'll understand), etc., etc., etc., and now it's up to me to fill him in during a surprise phone call and about four panic attacks later. Thanks. Thanks for putting me in the position of "breaking the news" to him. Bridey, I'm not the one marrying him, you are! And frankly, it's not my job to make sure that you are sharing the decisions we make regarding your wedding with your fiancé! It's yours.

    Look, I'm not naive, I know that the grooms carry less weight when it comes to the wedding plans, but for the love of God, bridey, you have to SHARE the plans with the poor guy; especially when it comes to the ceremony! Seriously, the groom I spoke to (for the first time, BTW... yeah, it was a lovely first impression for both of us) was practically reaching for a brown paper bag

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Fun-Filled Destination Wedding to the FAB New Orleans

    You gotta love a great sense of humor, right? Odds are, if you enjoy my blog, then you most certainly do! Well, bridey, all you have to do is look at these awesome photographs to see that Nicole and Shawn are definitely a fun couple who love to laugh (and so does their bridal party)! These two got married in New Orleans, because why the hell not, and rocked out all night! While it wasn't Mardi Gras (sorry kids, there are no boobs in this submission), it didn't stop this group from partying like it was! 

    What I love about this wedding besides the gorgeous details, silly pics and cool ass cake topper, is that every single person is having a great time and it shows. Friends and family flew from across the country to celebrate with Nicole and Shawn, and they did just that! CELEBRATE!! This is what it's all about, bridey! Getting married to the love of your life and having a fucking fabulous time in the process! 

    Nicole, you look beautiful. What an A MAZ ING wedding dress!!Nicole, what are you looking at in this picture??? Please, do tell!!My kind of girls!I can tell where the humor comes from on Nicole's side...We did it!! Woot! Woot!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ When it's too Late to Negotiate

    Allow me to set the scene for you... You're at some luxury car dealership signing all of the paperwork, swiping your card for the deposit and soon your fancy ass will be gallivanting around in a FAB new car! You are totally in love with it, and you can't wait to drive off of the lot and show your friends! Anyway, fast forward about six or seven months... Suddenly you decide that you really should have gone with the package which included the navigation and the sunroof, so you dial the dude who sold you the car to initiate what you thought would be some friendly conversation.  

    Bridey: "Hi Dude, it's Bridey Macpherson, and I've decided that I really need to have the nav system and sunroof.

    Dude: "Hi Bridey. Allow me to look into that for you."

    Bridey: "What do you mean, 'look into that'?"

    Dude: "Well, I know that adding a sunroof is about $700.00, and that the addition of the nav can run you about $2,000.00, but let me check with the service department and get back to you." (Clearly, I am making up these numbers!!)

    Bridey: "I don't understand. I bought a car from you. I gave you my business. Surely there must be something you can do for me. I was really hoping that you could just make it happen for me."

    Dude: "Sorry Bridey, but you've already paid your deposit and drove off of my lot six months ago. If I didn't sell the car to you, I'd have sold it to somebody else."

    Bridey: "So, you won't do anything to help me?"

    NOOOOOOO... He won't!! Because does this line of conversation seem logical to you? I mean... Would you EVER try this stunt (and expect it to work) with the dude from the car dealership? No, you wouldn't... Well, then, please don't try it with the peeps at your wedding venue. Because we are all way too nice to call you fucking crazy and ignorant (to your face), even if you are just that, a crazy and ignorant bride. Here's the actual conversation between a bride-to-be, and her friendly wedding coordinator:

    Bridey: "Hi wedding coordinator (WC), I've decided that I really need to give my guests a third entrée option. Let's add the salmon into the equation. What's the exact verbiage again? My invitations are going out next week, and I want to be sure it's correct."

    WC: "Bridey, I'll email you the appropriate verbiage and I'll check with the chef and get back to you with the per person pricing for the additional entrée."

    Bridey: "What do you mean, WC? I don't understand... Why would there be an additional cost?"

    WC: "Well, if you are looking to provide your guests a third option, you are asking that the chef prepare three separate meals, and there's an additional charge." 

    Bridey: "WC, I don't know if you realize this, but we are giving your establishment a lot of business. We are practically taking over for the weekend. I really think you need to make it happen for me."

    WC: "If it were up to me, I absolutely would make it happen for you, but there is only so much I can do considering that your wedding is during one of the busiest times for the property."

    REALLY? I've gone through this a million times... Bridey, why on earth do you think that anybody needs to "make something happen" for you simply because you chose to give them your business? REALITY CHECK... What do you think would happen if you walked into Nordstrom and told the sales associate that because you bought expensive shoes in their store a month ago, they should just give you some sunglasses? Sounds completely ludicrous, right? Well, that's essentially what you are asking of your wedding coordinator except for some reason, it only seems ludicrous when she CAN'T "make it happen".

    Bridey, if providing your guests with three entrée selections is important to you, fine. But, this is the kind of thing that must be negotiated (if it's not included) BEFORE you sign the contract. Then, if the sales person can "make it happen" for you, then they will. But, if it is the busiest time of the year for this establishment, they might just tell you "too bad" because another bride will pay the same money and have far less demands...

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Damn Sexy Bridal Boudoir Shoot...

    I can't... I love the idea of boudoir so much that when I saw this submission come in I was totally enamored. Because as not shy as I am, I have never so much as taken a picture (or had one taken) of myself that showed skin (well, anything worth seeing). So, as much as I love boudoir, at the same time, it kinda scares the shit out of me. No really... It's quite odd to appreciate something that scares you at the same time. I keep vowing that I will have one of my photographer peeps snap some photographs of me in my knickers, but every time I think I'm close to building up the courage, I bail. So... if you have bigger balls than me, bridey, go for it! Because I can assure you that as far as wedding gifts go (for your hus to be), boudoir is the one gift that is priceless.

    From the Photographer: There's no better gift to a brand new husband than some bridal boudoir, so Ali Sumsion Photography and I got together to dream up the classiest, light-and-airy bridal boudoir session with the bride. We wanted the focus to be on her natural beauty, blended with lots of natural light and soft florals. Pulled together with bridal features like Danani's impeccably beautiful vintage-inspired polka dot veil and the bridal garter, we believe this classic shoot is inspiration for any bride-to-be!

    I once wore a garter... Yeah... It's definitely not my thing!Flawless makeup!As I have mentioned, I'm totally aftraid of needles, so a belly ring is out... But, this girl? Sexy...The polka dot veil is FAB!!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ An Off the Beaten Path,Traditional, DIY, and Homemade Farm Wedding

    Bonnie and Becky. Becky and Bonnie. Maybe it's because when you put their names together, you come up with BB or maybe it's because they rock such cool and exquisite taste or maybe it's because they are so clearly meant for each other, but whatever it is, I really, really love Bonnie and Becky! I want them to be my friends 'cause I can just tell that they are fucking awesome. And bridey, all you have to do is absorb their gorgeous ceremony and all of the FAB elements of their wedding reception, and you'll want to be their friends too... But, the major reason I want to be friends with Bonnie and Becky? Is because they get it. They get that while the planning is coo coo, the marriage is totally worth it... 

    From the brides: Whenever wedding planning was overwhelming, we reminded ourselves that even if virtually EVERYTHING went wrong, we'd still say our vows and be married, so it'd be a success. Well, not only did we get married, but we a dream-come-true celebration, surrounded by the people we love the most.
    From the brides: Our wedding outfits were kept secret from each other until the wedding day, and in fact no one (except our tailor) had seen both the dresses up until that day. We decided to do a "first look" and we're so glad we did - seeing each other and having a moment alone before the ceremony was one of our favorite parts of the day. 
    From the brides: We walked down the aisle and back up again to violin and viola tunes provided by two of Bonnie's former classmates from her time in music conservatory. 
    From the brides: The ceremony itself was officiated by a dear family friend. We worked hard with her in the months leading up to the wedding to make sure that every element of our ceremony was meaningful to us - we wanted to combine tradition that made sense to us with things that define us as individuals and as a couple. 
    From the brides: We integrated pieces of each of our backgrounds into the ceremony, resulting in an awesome mash-up of both of our heritages and histories.
    From the brides: We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding, someplace with lots of green space and off the beaten path. We fell in love with our venue the moment we saw it - the gravely path leading up to the gorgeous red barn, big trees and rolling green hills in every direction. We loved that it was a real, working farm, complete with goats, chickens and pigs, and that the space is a public park, accessible for anyone to visit.
