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!
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!
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.
