    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ 5 Ways to Show Your Bridesmaids the LOVE!

    Bridey, there's been some serious hype about the awful way brides treat their bridesmaids these days. So, after the millionth story I've heard in like two weeks, I thought I would throw in my two cents because I just can't stand it anymore! The problem is, is that I could probably throw in a fucking dollar, and nothing would change. Because this seems to be an ongoing dilemma. A dilemma that doesn't change no matter what anybody says or writes or who says or writes it! So, let me give it another shot.

    Back in February of 2013, I wrote about how to keep your bridesmaids happy, and now I have a little more to add. This time I will keep it simple so maybe it will sink in:

    1. Throw a bash! Bridey, once you have asked your girls to be your 'maids get everybody together, and have a little party. Perhaps some of them don't know each other or know each other well? Then this is a perfect way to introduce them. Party with them, drink with them and have fun together! By the time your wedding rolls around, these chicks will be psyched to see each other which will make your day even that much more exciting! (Even better? Invite the groom and his men. One of my clients met her hus-to-be at an initial gathering of the 'maids and men! True story.)

    2. At your big bash, ask them what they'd like to wear on your big day. That's not to say that they can have carte blanche, but let them know that their opinion is valuable and important, and then work around their feedback. After all, they are (most likely) paying for the dress! At least give them a shot of being able wear it again! (Best way to do that? Little black dress, baby!) 

    3. Accept them for who they are. Perhaps one of your girls is rockin' some crazy (awesome) hot pink hair or a new tat or a shaved head? Bridey, I know it's killing you, but don't say a fucking word about changing their appearance. Leave it alone. You asked them to be in your wedding, and they are supporting you, so it is only fair that you support their choices too.

    4. Want the girls to look their best on your wedding day? Then it's up to you to pay for their hair and make up services. Bridey, they've dished out a ton of moola to be at your wedding (um, the bridesmaid dress, shoes, shower, shower present, bachelorette party, etc...), the least you can do give back. And while you're in the giving mood, I hope your girls enjoyed the bridesmaids gifts you gave them (something super personal, and thoughtful, right?)! 

    5. Get crazy with your girls! It's your wedding day! Have some fun! Order some champagne, and some food and enjoy this time with your 'maids. Focus on losing the "stress" and just have a ball; let go. I mean, you're surrounded by your best friends, getting all dolled up and you're getting married!!! Holy shit!! So, lose the stress and enjoy it!

    Brideys, I know that you picked these particular girls for particular reasons, right? Right. When your big day has come and gone, I'm guessing that you'd still like these girls in your life, correct? Well, then it's up to you to take care of them the way you're expecting them to take care of you.

    Fantasy Friday ~ An Engagement Shoot that is Sexy, Fun and Fabulous

    Bridey, don't you kind of feel like you are encroaching on Abbey and Dan's space somehow by staring at this picture? Good! That's exactly how I WANT you to feel. Actually, I'd be happy if you felt anything when you look at engagement photographs. Because oftentimes they can be a bit lackluster and ordinary. But, these? Well, they are anything but ordinary. They are extraordinary. They are fun. And you know what? Other people (as in anybody who is not the bride and groom) will actually want to look at them. I mean, there are costume changes and scenery changes and mood changes... Seriously, I could go on and on...

    Brideys! If you are looking for inspiration for your engagement photographs, just look down. Abbey and  Dan nailed this shoot with the help of their talented photographer, Tyler Boye of Tyler Boye Photography! Whatever you do.... Be extraordinary not ordinary.

    Like... The cutest pic! I love how Abbey is totally ticklish!Lovin' the how colorful this shoot is!!Wardrobe change in three... two... one...Hot damn.Get ready for some steam...H.O.T. H.O.T H.O.T.Compete with THAT, bridey!!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Little Romance in Paradise 

    See that, bridey? Know what that is? Complete and utter happiness. I love Michelle and Seung's Hawaiian wedding so much because even without the engagement story that I am about to share with you (or that Michelle is about to share with you), it's clear that these two are head over heals... Plus, not gonna lie, I love that they met at work and it took a 'lil booze to finally move things along! So, bridey, I am going to let Michelle take it away... Enjoy the eye candy!!!

    From the bride: We met through work and finally started dating a few months later. We were secretly admiring from a far. It took a little bit of "liquid courage" to get things going. Sounds so terrible! Lol, but it's true!

    Love that the Raiders shirt is staying on underneath the tux!From the bride: A random Wednesday night before bed, he called me to go outside in the backyard with him. I was wondering what he wanted since I was all ready to go to bed I even had my sleeping clothes on (hence why we don't have proposal photos). 
    Hi. Manolo. I think I love you.From the bride: He and our 2 pups were outside and he had 2 glasses of wine which only had 2 sips in each because I drank a glass earlier! Haha! If I had known I wouldn't have drank it! One of my pups Sadie who happens to be obsessed with socks, brought over a sock to me, which happens all the time and most of the time they happen to be dirty! 
    From the bride: So I was reluctant to take it from her but, when I did I realized it was heavy and took the ring box out of the sock, he then got on one knee and proposed and I of course said "yes?".... I was shocked I wasn't sure if this was really happening.
    Michelle's dress is just STUNNING!!!From the bride: It was the not the perfect proposal, but I loved it and wouldn't change anything about it! It was so Seung, spontaneous and not planned to thoroughly! Lol. Definitely a moment to remember.
    Unity candle? Nah. Sand cermony? Nope. How about we both drink from a coconut? PERFECT!What an amazingly passionate kiss.

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Don't Call me Until There's a Ring on it...

    You know what makes me laugh and feel annoyedat the same time? When I meet with a potential client, gaze down at her ring finger, and notice that there is no sparkly rock shining up at me. I immediately think that this meeting is a giant waste of time. And you know what? So does everybody else in "the industry". Bridey, if you're not engaged yet, please don't call me. I know... I know... "It's going to happen soon; it's imminent." But, you all think that. You all think that he or she will pop the question over the next romantic dinner or stroll down the beach, and while you're probably not wrong that it will happen at some point, you're still wasting my time. Because it's not soon enough for me to take you seriously. So, bridey, until you get the rock, get off my clock!

    Look, I know it feels like I'm being really mean, but allow me to shed some light on the situation from the perspective of your wedding vendors. We're busy with weddings or events every weekend, but we also know that securing future business needs to happen even when we don't have time to spare. So, when you, bridey, call us and inquire about our services, we put on a face, go into our spiel, and sell our souls to make you like us over the phone. Because that's what we do. And, if the phone call was a success, then an initial meeting is confirmed, and you've officially made onto our books. Score!! (A bit of a side note? Now I make it a point to weave the whole "how'd you get engaged" question into all initial phone calls so that I can avoid these situations...)

    Fast forward to the meeting...

    Fantasy Friday ~ It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's a Superhero Engagement Shoot!

    Don't be jealous of Diana and Kyle's shirts (I know, right? I totally am! I need to have that Wonder Woman tank!). Be jealous of this phenomenal engagement shoot! You know what, bridey, fuck that... Don't be jealous, be inspired! Be inspired to do something different. Be inspired to do something colorful and unique as opposed to simply smiling for the camera and planting a few kisses here and there. It doesn't have to be this, but why be boring when there are so many fun places to shoot your engagement photos?

    These insanely awesome photographs were taken in front of Kyle Brooks street art in Atlanta. You know I'm a graffiti enthusiast, so when I saw this shoot, I just HAD to share it with you, bridey. Just wait, these two are getting married any day now, and I am hoping that Julie of Jules Photography will be kind enough to submit their COMIC BOOK WEDDING to BB so that I can share that with you too... WOW! You think that was a big enough hint? Anyway, enough outta me... Enjoy these fabulous and fun pics!! 

    Between the tat and the shoes... I am OBSESSED!KAPOW!!!! Obvi, I love her hair, but with the KAPOW? I can't... It's just too awesome!Time to kick these off! Um Kyle... What are you whispering into Diana's ear? That girl is blushing!!Diana, I love your dimples! So cute.Costume change.LOVE everything about this shoot!!
