    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Five Truly Unique Ideas for Your Wedding... Go Ahead, Bridey (or Groomy), Dazzle Me! 

    So, the other day, a friend of mine showed me the most incredible wedding video. And it wasn't incredible because of some over the top, ridiculously gaudy bullshit or super lavish decor; it was incredible because it was unique and completely unexpected... for the bride and for the guests. What was it that has me so dazzled? Well, in the middle of the ceremony (right before saying "I do"), the adorable (and ballsy) groom broke out into song. Yup! This guy grabbed the mic from the officiant and started singing! And the coolest part? Well, let's just say that the groom wasn't the most talented singer I've ever heard. Honestly? I would say that his performance barely a step above karaoke, but that's not the point. The point is, he did something so fabulous, and so unexpected that nobody in attendance will ever forget it!

    Oh, but it gets better, bridey! How? Well, about four or five of the guests stood up in their seats and sang with him. I mean, obviously this was planned, and probably practiced (did I mention the saxophone player?!), but what a fantastic surprise! Right? And the bride was absolutely floored! She just stood there watching with the most beautiful look on her face. Who knows? Perhaps she was horrified, but I have a hunch she was entranced and touched. Wouldn't you be?

    Look, I'm not saying that you (or your groom) have to break out into song to have your wedding stand out from all of the others (although, it's a super awesome idea!); all I am saying is that if you are interested in doing something different, then it's time to color outside of the lines. Here are a five quick ideas to make your wedding a bit more unique:

    1. Screw the classical music! Bridey, walk down the aisle to something fabulous... like a song with words! Stumped? Some of my faves are "Hallelujah" by Jeff Buckley or "Skinny Love" by Bon Iver (one of my favorite songs ever!) or the almost overdone, but still FAB "Marry Me" by Train.

    2. Candy bouquets. Who said you need to walk down the aisle with flowers? Get whimsy! Grab a bunch of those twisty lollipops, tie them together and trot down the aisle!

    3. Lose the traditional wedding food. Shock your guests and DON'T feed them chicken or beef. I mean, aren't we all a bit sick of fucking chicken and beef???!!

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Luscious, Sumptuous, and Delicious Southern Wedding

    Luscious. Yup! Luscious is the word that comes to mind when I take in beautiful deets encapsulated in Kari and Brian’s lovely wedding. I swear that each picture is even more colorful than the next. Seriously, scroll down and check out the flowers. Jumping off the page, right?! Right!! And the venue? OMG! The venue! The cathedral ceilings and the open feel of the space are absolutely enticing! I could totally live there!

    But, outside of the amazing venue, waterfall backdrop (yes, I said waterfall!) bright flowers, stunning dress, gorge hairpiece and basically everything else you’re about to see, I love that Kari and Brian chose to have their friend to officiate the wedding. To me, that is at the top of the list when it comes to what this couple will look back and gush about in the years to come. Sure they will talk about how they pulled off the most perfect day ever, but when it comes right down to it, I’m sure that the officiant, family and friends will be at the top of their list. Bridey, as you browse Kari and Brian’s wedding, I want you to think about what will be at the top of your list as you and your hus gush about your wedding day in the years to come. Holy hell... I can't... I'm so in love!!Kari, you look absolutely beautiful!!!Brian's reaction is priceless...HAHA!! Gotta love the eavesdropping. I'm such a sucker for how they are looking at each other!That's one hell of an aisle!!!Awwwww.....Told ya' there was a waterfall!Love the thumbprint guest book!Simply gorgeous!

Not to mention the photograph, captured by Mercedes Morgan of Mercedes Morgan Photography. I'm obsessed with it! 

    Bridey, if you are as obsessed with the tree and the pic as I am, just wait until you see the rest of the photographs from this wedding. Chelsea and Dusty nailed it in every aspect of their wedding! Seriously, I felt like I was at the ceremony, hanging with the bridal party and dancing the night away. Maybe I even got a tattoo while I was enjoying myself!! Whaaa? Yeah, just scroll and you'll see! Enjoy!!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Enough is Enough! Quit Texting Me, Bridey...

    So, I took a brief hiatus from Bitchless Bride because I seriously thought I was going to lose my fucking mind if I had to deal with one.more.thing. I mean, I absolutely LOVE BB, but I just couldn't get my shit together enough to put anything (well, of quality) on my site. Know what I mean, bridey? Sometimes it all adds up, and you just HAVE to let something go. So, that's exactly what I did. I put BB on hold for a week to regroup. And in retrospect, perhaps the tip of the iceberg for me the texting bride. Oh dear God. This one... This bridey... She really IS lovely, but without boundaries. And boundaries, my dear bridey, are important.

    It started innocently enough... She said that due to the nature of her work, texting (as opposed to communicating via email/phone) was the best way for us to stay in touch. At first, I had no problem with it. She would text a few quick questions, I would text her the answers and that would be that. But, then it began to morph into an entirely different animal. She would text me at 5 AM, she would text me at 10 PM on a Sunday, she would text me knowing that I was away for a long weekend with my husband. Honestly? I couldn't tell if it was entitlement or complete ignorance. But, considering how much I adored this bride initially, I had to believe that it was pure ignorance. Right?

    Right! She wasn't entitled, just ignorant! Which is actually so much better than being entitled (in my humble opinion)! Seriously, thank goodness my first impression wasn't completely skewed! Because I HATE when I misjudge somebody. Totally makes me feel like a rookie. Anyway... What was I going to do? Ignore her! Well, sort of... But, I did get in the habit of only responding to her texts during "business hours". It was the only way I could get the message across without being a bitch (though it was super tempting!), and ultimately, she caught on.

    Bridey, you know it's not like me to avoid confrontation. Truly, I wasn't being a wuss and completely avoiding a necessary conversation with my text-crazed bride. I just wanted to try responding to her on my time, instead of hers, before opening a can of quite possibly some messy worms. And, you know what? It worked! No worms required.

    Most importantly, what I learned from this experience (that I'm hoping you'll absorb too) is that the next time a client suggests texting as the preferred method of communication, establish boundaries, and immediately.

    Fantasy Friday ~ A True Fantasy... A Stunning Italian Wedding

    I have been lucky enough to be married to my hus for 10 years. TEN YEARS!! OMG! No, I’m not an old lady; I just took the leap at a young age! But, anyway… Although we eloped to Las Vegas, a few years ago on Bitchless Bride, I wrote about what my fantasy wedding would have been had we decided to be a bit more “traditional”. And while I would still love for Prince to play at the reception, I have to admit, when I saw Julie and Deneb’s wedding submission come through, I think that perhaps I’ve changed my mind because their wedding is exactly what I would want mine to be, today.

    Andrea, the talented photographer, shot this wedding in Gavi, Italy (in the Piedmont region, not too far from Milan) at a venue called L’Ostellier. Um, not only is this a beautiful location, but also, they make their own wine!! A MAZ ING! (My hus and I honeymooned in Italy, and I swear I could have stayed there for the rest of my life!) Julie and Deneb’s wedding was not only stunning, but amazingly romantic… Scroll down… You’ll see! Bridey, if a destination wedding is your plan, I highly suggest Gavi, Italy!! Enjoy!

    I'm absolutely OB SESS ED with the invitations!!! Julies's mom made her dress. Talk about DIY!!! It's incredibly beautiful!This is a first for me. I have never seen a photograph of somebody cutting a wedding dress (on the day of the wedding). Although, I am assuming that it's Julie's mom, and considering that she made the dress, I guess it's okay!!The flowers are stunning, but look beyond them... That's one hell of a backdrop!!!Friends of the B+G...Julie's dad officiated the wedding... Sniff sniff...You'll see...
