    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Don't Ignore The Writing on the Wall

    So… I had a wedding cancel for the second time in my career a few months ago. I have been holding off on writing about it, out of respect for my bride, and while I wasn’t as heartbroken as she was (obviously), I was definitely sad and shocked so thought it was only right give it a little time before I spilled the beans. Because, this bride? Well, she is one of the good ones; a total Bitchless Bride who I care about and who very well may read BB so I didn’t want to add salt to the very open wound by writing about it too soon.

    The reason my bride is so raw is because it the groom called it off, and did so 11 days before the wedding. ELEVEN DAYS. Just like that... CANCELLED! Holy fucking brutal. But, as sad and shocked as I was for the bride, I couldn’t help but wonder if she knew that it was a possibility; that she knew deep down that this dude wasn’t right for her and simply chose to ignore the signs. I know, what a bitch! How could I even suggest that she KNEW?!! Because if she did know, then why go through the motions? Why progress with the wedding plans? Why kill yourself with all of the personal touches and DIY aspects if it was never going to happen? Right? Why not just walk away and quit while you’re ahead?

    I’ll tell you why… Because it’s fucking hard to walk away from a life that you have known for six years. It’s comfortable, it’s easy and clearly she thought that whatever “it” was would pass.

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Beautiful Sight... We're Happy Tonight...

    I'm SO over the snow. Like SO. OVER. THE. FUCKING. SNOW. If you are on the East Coast, Midwest or bascially anywhere from the Midwest and eastward, then I am sure you are over the snow too. But, there is one thing I happen to love about the snow. A winter wedding. I am the biggest mushball when it comes to a glistening white backdrop, amber hues, snowflakes and a beautiful wedding dress.

    Just take a few doctors, Lauren and Frank, some sparkle and a FABU reception, and there you have it. A smashing wedding! Seriously, just wait until you see the details on this one. As somebody who has been in the industry for practially my whole life, specifically luxury hotels, I definitely have a softspot for a well done hotel wedding. And this wedding, well, it's just beautiful. Gorgeous actually. My goes of to the Double Tree by Hilton Tudor Arms Hotel. Bridey, if you're a hotel wedding kind of girl, then I highly suggest that you take in and digest all of these gorgeous photographs!

    Lauren, that look is priceless! Far cry from the scrubs, huh?Such a lovely wedding dress. Awwwwwww.... Group hug!Frank, that is the look that every girl wants to see when they are walking down the aisle.See what I mean? Such a FAB backdrop (and it's free)!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Timeless Beauty, Amazing Wedding and a Cake to Die For...

    Wow. I mean... just look at Angela... She is STUN NING LY beautiful. Her dress, her flawless skin, her amazing figure... Seriously, some girls just have it all, right? And that strapless dress looks like it was absolutely made to fit her body. Talk about a bride who can wear a strapless dress and own it!! If you missed the post I wrote about strapless dresses, then go educate yourselves, brideys. Because Angela is absolutely fabulous in strapless. 

    But, besides her amazing figure and her amazing wedding dress, this is a beautiful wedding. But, I would be lying if I said that outside of the dress, the babe and the cool deets of this post, I was particularly drawn to the cake. It's unbelievable. Like, totally breathtaking. And if you know me at all, then you know that I am a sucker for cake. So I invite you to breathe this one in, bridey. Because it's pretty fucking fabulous. Enjoy!

    Would you check out the jewels... I love sapphires. I've seriously been considering a new wedding band, and this time around, it's GOT to have sapphires in it!Absolutely LOVE the headpiece this little girl is rockin'.Pin-up or what? Angela, you really are gorgeous!I cannot get over this pic.Unadulterated happiness.

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Why Your Wedding Budget HAS to Take Precedence Over Your Guest List

    Budget. It’s a dirty word, but somebody’s GOT to talk about it. Here’s the thing, bridey, when your guest list grows, then your budget needs to grow with it. PERIOD. THE END. Really, it’s as simple as that. Because it’s not fair for you to expect your vendors to adhere to your much smaller budget simply because you want to invite more people, and now you can’t afford the previously agreed upon menu/concept/bouquet/etc. In fact, you should be calling your vendors telling them that they have to provide MORE of whatever it is they are providing, not LESS, because your numbers have increased. 

    I’m currently working with a bride who has about zero control over her guest list. And frankly, it’s starting to really piss me off. We’ve gone round and round and round regarding her fucking guest list, and I have had it. Bridey, if you can’t afford to invite the free world, then don’t. I know what etiquette says about whom you should invite, and who you shouldn’t feel obligated to invite to your wedding, but you know what etiquette doesn’t tell you, bridey? That your budget has to take precedence over stupid etiquette. I mean sure, invite everybody you know, but I hope they like the cash bar, one passed hors d’oeuvre and vegetarian meal. Because that’s what they are going to “enjoy” that evening. Not to mention that their table will stripped of anything resembling a centerpiece and MUZAK will be the entertainment because the DJ wouldn’t drop his prices.

    Okay, perhaps I am being a bit melodramatic, but you get what I am saying, right?

    Fantasy Friday ~ The Ice Queen

    This post is so awesomely cool that I just had to show you. There's no doubt that it would definitely be a fucked up bridal shoot, but... Who cares! It's still a SUPER, kickass shoot!! I mean, there is a beautiful dress, stunning hair and makeup and overall, these photographs are killer. And this pic? It TOTALLY reminds me of Stanley Kubrick's Clockwork Orange... Right? Kickass and creepy all at the same time! Anyway, here's what the chicks at FStop Poetry were thinking (more like channeling) when they shot this.

    FStop Poetry: I have been watching a lot of Tarantino movies lately and looking at a lot of McQueen. I appreciate men who make women look bad ass. Since we graduated Erin and I have tried to continue our personal work and still give ourselves things to try “Just for fun”. Because let’s face it, creating work is a lot of fun, and it’s easy to forget that.

    So this month we decided to just spit ball some ideas, call our friends and create something for fun, but also push ourselves to go outside of our box and try to work a little differently. Using models, a make up artist, and Sue Regis’ Glass we set out with a goal of creating a fairy tale. Sue created glass pieces specifically for our story, Andrea brought our “arwen meets black swan” character to life. And Shaun volunteered to be honest about having insecurities. Even as classically beautiful as Shaun is she still asked us “are you sure I am not too pale?Keep scrolling to see how it ends.We have both been reflecting on the importance of staying positive. Inspired by the Midwest winters, that make everything seem gray. The thought of Narnia never thawing, and the story “The Ice Queen” We created a story about a woman who becomes frozen, and no longer sees the world the same way. She looks in a mirror and see’s her own broken view of beauty all over her face. Every flaw magnified, and every disappointment held onto in frozen jars. She becomes so frozen she cannot feel the cold.Not gonna lie, I love this shot of the filthy wedding dress.The frozen jars filled with disappointment (totally channeling Tarantino here!)...Wait! What's in the box?! Fstop, what if we ended it with Shaun realizing that perfection is bullshit? And the box contains her self love and confidence?Let's get rid of the jars of disappointment, shall we? FStop: It’s really easy to focus on the “wish-I-had’s…” The wish-I-hads, can easily become your theme song, if you don’t make an effort to say, “I wonder what light, I can seek out in the world today…”Shaun, you're beautiful, and not too pale at all!
