The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ For the Sake of the Invitation

Okay, this topic is coming up quite a bit in my world and those of my talented vendor friends, so I thought I would step in and write a bit about it so that you, bridey, can stop killing us with all of the back and forth. Here's the deal, your wedding isn't until November or December, but for sake of the invitation, you need to know what you're serving at the wedding so that you can complete the insert. Sound familiar? What is a girl to do? Well, here's a little test. Let's see how you do:

a. Call your wedding venue and demand a tasting?
b. Email your wedding planner (or invitation vendor) stating "emergency" in the subject line?
c. Panic, I mean your wedding is only six months away; why isn't anybody getting back to me?
d. All of the above.
e. None of the above.

NONE OF THE ABOVE! Bridey, a tip? Relax. Everything is going to be okay. I swear, I'm totally not meaning to patronize, but everything will be okay. Let me walk you through this one, because it's a very valid point, although if your wedding isn't for six months or so, frankly, you don't matter to most of your vendors right now (sorry, but true story!). I know you don't want to hear this, but your venue, caterer, etc. are in the middle of a very busy spring wedding season. And if your wedding isn't until late fall, I can assure you that the last thing they want to do is hear from you, let alone arrange a tasting so that you can figure out what to put in your invitation. 

So, what should you do? Well, it's actually quite simple.

Fantasy Friday ~ Bang Bang!

Doesn't every woman dream of shooting her man every once in a while? I mean... I totally love my hus, but there are some days when I find myself fantasizing about this scenario, but... I quickly snap out of my craziness, put down the vodka, and decide that even fantasizing about it scares the shit out of me.

But, this shoot (which took place in a private residence in the blue mountains, NSW, Australia, by the way)? Well, it struck me as so fatuously awesome, that I had to share it with you.

A few words from the photographer, Hilary Cam: "What makes this wedding or shoot non-cookie-cutter? Its a bride dressed up as a hunter and groom dressed as a deer. She hunts him, then shoots him and claims him as her trophy. Or you could have the happy ending where she kisses him and turns the deer into a man.

It's weird, and wacky and not the usual trash the dress session. Chrissy Hall herself is a fashion photographer, (xraydoll.com ) so loves a photography with a twist. A TTD (trash the dress) walking along the beach would have been too ordinary for Chrissie. She is a vegetarian and animal rights activist so hunting animals is something she is strongly against however hunting men is totally acceptable."

I am completely in AWE right now... That deer head looks so fucking real, right??

Oh my God! Are you totally falling over right now?
