1. I'm a curvy girl. I have what they classify as "hour glass" figure. I'm a size 8/10 with a little waist and a pretty fab rack. But, the price I pay for such a fine rack is occasional back fat. That's why, when given the choice, I don't usually go for a strapless dress. I would rather avoid the whole fatty back thing, and the whole pulling it up all night thing, and just choose something with a halter or some spaghetti straps, and move on. And if you feel like I do, then my advice? Just avoid the whole "I need a strapless dress for my wedding or I'm gonna die..." thing... Don't do it. Bat fat problem? GONE!! See how easy that was? Problem solved. Pick something else.
2. If you're completely hell bent on walking down the aisle in a strapless gown, then lose some weight. There, I said it. Sorry, but it's true.
I am in a mood... A whimsical mood... A happy mood... An almost childlike mood... No, really I am! I can't figure out if it's because I am working with some great brideys lately or because Spring is finally in the air, but BB has the fever! And when you have the fever, you just have to go with it. Right? So why not be happy? Like deliriously fucking happy? And you know what is a happy color? RAINBOW! Which of course got me thinking about two things... The Rainbow Connection, by Kermit (be sure to watch the video... you'll thank me later for that stupid grin of yours), and how cool it would be to plan an over-the-top rainbow wedding!
Soooo... welcome to Fantasy Friday!! I am drooling over these photographs, and feel so inspired to push the limit with any bride who will allow me to do so... So c'mon, bridey! Get into the rainbow mood with me and let's have some fucking fun!
Gorgeous. Stunning. Ballsy.
Yes, I think it's real fur, but please don't kill the messenger (she says quietly). I wanted to share it because I think it's fabulous, not because I am taking a stand one way or another regarding animal rights (however, you all know that I have two cats, so I too am hoping it's faux!) Anyway....
Um, walk down the aisle in your Jimmy Choo's and then change into some rainbow Vans? Sounds good to me!
Yeah... There are no words... Well, except that the spotlight just might be off of you, bridey, for a little while as your guests take in the cuteness of the flower girls!
No words... None. Other then FUCKING FANTASTIC!
From the Desk of "Goldilocks"... Bride AND Vendor:
I’ve peeked behind the curtain and…. Hum, I was really really disappointed. To what am I referring to you ask? In the bridal world, especially on the East coast, there is one spot that is a hands down wedding institution, a place that is a bridal rite of passage for dress shopping: I would say the name, but I don’t want to get in trouble with the ringmaster, so please use your imagination. For now, I will refer to it as “The Institution”.
