Entries in Bitchless Bride (4)
What an incredibly wonderful and crazy year it's been for BB! I was just tidying up my files on my Mac, (something I should do more often) and as I was cleaning up, I started thinking about how much I have accomplished in 2012! I mean between wedding planning, Bitchless Bride and writing for OneWed and HuffPost Weddings, I am absolutely amazed at how much I have done. No wonder why I'm so fucking exhausted! All in good fun though...
Take a peek at some of my faves of 2012:
There was Tick Tock on the Clock... Yeah, that was before anybody was really reading BB!! Too bad too... This particular post is quite educational for all of you brideys out there!
And one about my favorite bride... Oops!! She got lipstick on her dress before her ceremony, and laughed it off! I know, right??
The Bitchless Bride Video Rants began! Here's a link to the first one I did, and I must say that I really, really LOVE wearing that pink wig! It's like I put it on, and my magic powers (of wedding planning) come ALIVE!!
OneWed ran BB's 5 Tips for Finding the Right Wedding Planner. I really do love that piece!
Then BB got a little bit sexy... There were 21 comments on the Give it to Me Brideys post... All about who "did it" on their wedding night... Did you?
It got even hotter on BB when we were discussing To Boudoir or Not to Boudoir... IS There a Question?
In October, I decided that if I really wanted Bitchless Bride to evolve, then I needed to learn how to do it better; to push BB in the right direction. Because, If it Ain't Aweome, Then Why Bother? So, where is a girl to go when she wants to do it the right way? The Blogcademy of course!! And boy, did I learn a lot! After all, I'm just a wedding planner... This blogging stuff is all new to me!!
After Blogcademy, I made a few changes... And one of the biggest, most noticeable changes I made (thanks to the fabulous advice I received during my blogacation) was to be a bit more educational (still with an edge of course!)... I wanted you, bridey, to really learn from my wedding planning experience... To take away the importance of what it means to really be a BITCHLESS BRIDE. And a popular post I wrote following this epiphany was, 5 Important "Bridal Traits" I Learned From my Favorite Bride...
That was a good one! And finally... BB started putting up Real Weddings... And I mean REAL!! Like the pictures you love, the ones you don't and the story behind the planning... The REAL story. Here are a few pics of the last Real Wedding... Wedding in a Winter Wonderland!
Phew! 2012 was a HUGE year! And that's not even the half of it! But, no matter what... I hope you learned a lot bridey, I know I certainly did!!! Thank you for reading Bitchless Bride... Your bridal health is truly important to me, even if I don't always say it in the most heartwarming way...
BB is going to start 2013 with a BANG! So, stay tuned for some BIG, GIANT, HUGE news!
It's so BIG that I am going to take a bit of a break... So... I will see you next Wednesday with a new Real Wedding. But, never fear... You can always find me on Twitter, FB and Pinterest!
HAPPY NEW YEAR BRIDEYS!!!
I have to share a story with you brideys, and it has nothing to do with being a better bride, or realistic tips on how to get shit done for your wedding. But, it is entertaining (to say the least), and if I don't write about it and get it off of my chest, then I might actually get really pissed off, and possibly arrested for my trash-talking mouth (shocking, I know).
"Wait!" She yelled as she sailed across the bridal suite.
"Wait! Kathleen! Make sure you get those racoon things under her eyes." The bride to the makeup artist as her mother sat in the chair waiting for Kathleen to begin her magic.
Yup. This is just a little taste of the bride I have been working with for sixteen months. Isn't that just horrifying? I felt so sad as her mother sat in the chair completely humiliated waiting for the "racoon things" to be dealt with, her head lowered in embarrassment.
