Bridesmaid Dresses

A Little Sparkle, A Little Glitz and A Lot of Amazing Details... A Winter Wedding That Will Actually Make You Wish it was Winter!

Yup! You read that right! Kathleen and Dan's wedding will 100% make you wish it was winter... Like, NOW. It IS possible that perhaps it's just me, and maybe I feel this way because it's been so fucking cold every morning on the East Coast that I'm getting a little taste of winter, but I saw this wedding in my inbox, and just had to share it with you. And, if you're a winter bride, there are several amazing elements you can borrow from this lovely Canadian wedding. Starting with the dress! OMG! Kathleen's dress is kickass! Paired with a warm stole for out outdoor pics, this dress totally had me wishing I could get married again.

Bridey, aside from the awesome wedding dress, the bridesmaids dresses are rockin', and quite daring... And I love them so much! You'll see. Between the fabulous attire, and the creative aspects strewn throughout the day, you'll see why I couldn't wait to share this one with you, like NOW! Enjoy!

Um... See? Such a fantastic wedding dress!

Kathleen, you look amazing! Talk about utter happiness shining through!

I love this photograph. Just a bunch of dudes sitting at the bar, waiting to get their wedding on!

See? Totally daring! Just a shade or two off from the wedding dress. LOVE IT! And, I would totally wear this dress again...

Yeah... This happens all of the time. But, good news! Look down! He made it down the aisle (with a l'il help from dad)!

OMG... The dress has pockets! And Dan's thumb is in her pocket! 

One of my favorite pics... Ever.

Definitely an attractive group! 

That's one hell of an entrance! 

Gimme!!! Gimme!!!

STFU!

A Lovely, Laid Back and Rainbow-Tastic Colorado Wedding

Since BB's inception, I've written quite a bit about what it means to be a good bride. I mean... Bitchless Bride has dedicated over four years to educating brides all over the world on basic (and sometimes extreme) bridal etiquette, how to behave as a bridey babe, and what it means to be a favorite amongst your wedding vendors, all while still achieving those bridal milestones. So, when I put it out there that I was looking for brides who were easy to work with, totally "bitchless", and a photographer FAVE, I received this fucking amazing, rustic chic wedding of Michelle and Patrick. 

As you scroll along, it won't take much for you to see why I love the M+P so much. For starters, I love that Michelle had her bridesmaids wear whatever the hell they wanted! I know that's not for every bride, but let's be honest, we all know what looks good on us, and what doesn't, so wearing a kickass dress that you feel good in certainly allows a true glow to shine through in photographs. That coupled with the low key yet totally rusticy, barn wedding (with an A MAZ ING wedding cake!) had me love them even more. Plus, we all know that when it rains on your wedding day, it's good luck. Luck or not, it still fucking sucks. But... It doesn't suck so much when you get two rainbows out of the deal! Right? Totally deserved by the B+G! Enjoy!

Seriously? Can we please talk about how fantastic these bridesmaids dresses are??

Damn, girl! You look great!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Kickass, Super Colorful, Mexican Themed Wedding

A fabulous cake topper. A fabulous cake!! And a fabulously unique and vibrantly colorful wedding. Bridey, if you want your wedding day to be filled with intense color and fun, then copy and paste Jamie and Vincent's wedding into that binder of yours and have at it. Seriously, I am so excited to show you this one to you because of how dynamic and cool it is (and because of the beer-serving donkey, piñata filled with shots, sensational accesories, etc.), but Jamie, who is in med school full time, created the most beautiful DIY aspects for the day proving that anything is possible. Seriously, what an overachiever!

But, most importantly... Jamie and Vincent's wedding completely tells a story of who they are as a couple and how awesome it is to create a day that is really about who you are TOGETHER!!! Enjoy! I certainly did!!

Um. SHUT.THE.FUCK.UP with the shoes! A MAZ ING!!!And the vivacious necklace!! Totally gorge!Probably my most favorite bridesmaids dresses ever. Flattering, fun and totally wearable again without screaming bridesmaid dress.Hello dapper Vincent. You look quite handsome! Love the shoes!Jamie, you are STUNNING. I love the white wedding dress matched with all of the color you're rockin'!A beautiful day and a beautiful setting for a wedding!THAT'S how it's done, bridey!! Got to love a good dip!Yeah. Don't worry, considering my love for cake, you know I have more pics to show you!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Kickass, Zombie, Pirate Halloween Wedding...

It's Halloween. How could I not show you a fabulously spooky awesome Halloween wedding? Right? I mean... Isn't that what I'm supposed to do? Now, as you know, I don't always follow the rules, but this one was too good to pass up. Seriously, any bride who takes a fucking scissors to the bridesmaid dresses is cool in my book. That AND a black and white wedding dress and pirate groomsmen? Hell yeah! I can't... It's too good.

See for yourselves, bridey. I'll let Allison, the bride, take over to explain a bit about her wedding... Enjoy, bridey!! And Happy Halloween!

From the bride: My dress was from Ebay. I knew I wanted a funky black and white dress, but still wanted to look like a bride. So I typed in "black and white corset dress" and my dress was one of the first to come up. I loved it immediately and ordered it within days. Not the usual bridal party makeup... You never see a fake hand anymore.From the bride: I found the bridesmaids dresses on Ebay- when they arrived, we grabbed some knives, scissors, lighters and fake blood and just went to town on these dresses. We had no real direction- just chop, slash and splatter until they were zombified to our liking. From the bride: I thought it would be great for the zomb-maids to have dead flowers in their hands since they were supposed to be "dead" after all. Can you imagine being a bridesmaid? Hold on... Let me take a scissors to my dress and paint my face full of fake blood. Um, okay!!!From the bride: When thinking of good ideas for parents costumes, right away James said that my dad had to be Superman. "He's the father of the bride!- He has to be superman!" So that was a done deal. My dad was happy to oblige.Love this pic! I love it even with the ref officiating their wedding!

The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Five Reasons You Are a Demanding Bride

Allow me to get right to the point. Bridey, are you a demanding bride? Wait? You don't know? Okay, fair enough... I guess I can understand why you may not know if you are a demanding bride or not. I mean, how WOULD you know? Right? You've never planned a wedding before... How are you supposed to know what crosses the line into the demanding bride territory? Well, to help you girls out, I'll give you five reasons why are you a demanding bride. 

1. You have a champagne taste on a beer budget. Look, bridey, I wrote a whole post dedicated to this topic in November of last year, but there are still so many of you out there, that I feel like I need to touch on it again. Let's take the example, shall we? If you expect champagne, sorry, DEMAND it, but can only afford beer, then either put your money where you mouth is, or shut your mouth. What do I mean? What do I MEAN? Okay, it's not fair to expect five star service at a three star venue. It's not fair for you to expect more from a vendor than you are willing to pay. PERIOD THE END. Want more? Then go read my entire post about this topic.

2. You have this little problem. You're actually demanding. You demand a lot from those around you, and your wedding is no exception. But, you know what, bridey? There is nothing wrong with that. I would just use caution with your demands and be sure that you aren't demanding too much. Hmmmmm... The first thing that comes to mind is demanding too much from your bridesmaids. Yeah, it's a very fine line, bridey, and with all of the parties, brunches, showers and the bachelorette party, it's a lot. And if you're a demanding bitch? Nobody is going to feel like celebrating with you. So, watch your demanding ways, bridey or else you will be celebrating by yourself.

3. You have unrealistic expectations. I know, as a wedding vendor, that you want me to respond to your email, VM, text, tweet or whatever the SECOND I receive it. And demanding that I do so by the EOD (that's "end of day" for those of you who aren't down with corporate lingo) is bullshit.
