    Super SLIMEY Sunday ~ A Bride's Plea for Help

    Hey BB!

    Plea for help!

    I had a pretty bad experience with our officiant at our wedding... 

    We had spoken to him on the phone and felt really good about him, so we went ahead and booked. At that point, he sent us their "suggested ceremonies", none of which we liked at all. His "most popular" one was this weird thing about the 5 needs of men (a wife who puts out, always acts like she's into it, keeps the house nice and "wears her hair in a style that is pleasing to him") and the 5 needs of women (I can't remember any but that she wanted to be financially provided for and get cuddles... seriously).

    After seeing that, we decided we'd probably do better to try and draft our own ceremony and ask him to follow it- he said that was totally cool, and actually complimented the ceremony when I first sent it via email as well as 2 weeks before the wedding when we did our sit down planning meeting. We went over the ceremony, he asked us to add some things, cut some things and allow him to improv specific parts, all of which we agreed to. We felt really good about everything when we left. 

    However, the day of the wedding it felt like he hadn't looked at our ceremony again after that meeting. He messed up the name of one of my dead grandfathers (my grandmother was obviously pretty upset), included parts of the ceremony he'd wanted us to cut, and in general seemed very uncomfortable and lost (lots of awkward pauses and "umm"s). I'd made a point of explaining that I would be keeping my name and didn't want to be announced as Mr. and Mrs. X.

    Why I Love a Fake Wedding Band 

    Above... The fake wedding bands I carry in my emergency kit. 

    I lost my wedding band. Seriously, I can’t find it anywhere. And I have to say that my hus has been pretty cool about it and hasn’t started to freak out (yet) because I tend to leave my “valuables” around the house. But, I was heading out for dinner and drinks with the girls, and felt weird leaving rockin’ only my engagement ring. Soooo… I dug into my emergency bag (you know, THE emergency bag? The one I use on your wedding day bridey…) pulled out a fake wedding band, and wore it with my engagement ring. And you know what? It’s shocking how real it looked next to my diamond. But, that’s not the point… The point is as I was gazing down at my fake wedding band bling, I remembered the story of Tim and Jessica, and the reason why I started packing fake wedding bands in the first place.

    Who Likes to Rock the Party? Six Definite Party Pleasers...

    I am basking in the glow of a successful wedding. I just love this feeling. Seriously, I wish I could bottle it and sell it (similar to how I feel after a kickass workout!). THIS is why I do what I do. And sometimes brideys, I need a reminder. And as I watched my two friends tie the knot in their cute, quirky and loveable way, I felt all of the tension and excitement from an awesome, but somewhat intense wedding season just melt away. It's couples like this make me want to throw a parade for all of you good ones out there... And by "good ones", I mean the couples that understand that a wedding is a celebration of two lives forever joined, not a stressful mess of all the pretty details.

    With This Ring Thee Wed… BB’s Helpful Tips on How to Write Your Wedding Vows

    {Image via http://www.fanpop.com}

    As you probably saw from my last piece on Huff Post Weddings, I eloped. And a huge part of that decision was because my husband wasn’t quite comfortable professing his undying love for me in front of 150 guests. But, more that than our vows were really personal, and he is very private (so am I… HA! There’s certainly nothing private about me!). Definitely not an ideal platform for him to promise to rub my feet following a long weekend of work, or to always open my car door, even though he knows I can do it myself, etc. So, we went a different route.
