Fantasy Friday ~ A Gorgeous, Rustic, Boho Styled Wedding Shoot

Bridey, if you’re looking for inspiration, look no further! Seriously, there are oodles of inspiration in this rustic, boho shoot. OODLES! These pics are absolutely drool worthy, and every now and again, it’s nice for me to step down from the soapbox that is The Truth Hurts Tuesday, and even take a break from Real Wedding Wednesday and linger over the amazingly inspirational possibilities of a styled shoot brought to me by some seriously creative peeps in the industry.

If you’re looking for some simple, yet beautiful styling ideas for your wedding, just scroll down. Jacqueline Marie Studios incorporated rich florals, vintage props and even a pink signature drink with a kiwi garnish. Super awesome, right? I mean, kiwi is rather delicious and you never see it in a cocktail, let alone at a wedding! Perhaps you want to rock a stunning headpiece as you make your way down the aisle? Then replicate the handmade floral wreath below. Personally? I am dying over that dress! Lace is not usually my thing (and neither is a form fitting gown due to my voluptuous ass), but I find myself loving the lace, the shape and the cut. And, don’t even get me started on the cake!!! Hell yeah! Enjoy this one, bridey. I did!Um... A MAZ ING. I love everything about this pic. Her hair, the headpiece and her beautiful long neck.Hi kiwi. You look quite lovely in a pink cocktail. Would make for a great signature drink!Such a fantastic chandelier!

The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Please Talk to Your Fiancé... So I Don't Have To!

Bridey, it's really very simple. Talk to your fiancé. Discuss the wedding you want. Discuss the wedding he wants. Discuss the wedding that you both want. Because, I'm hoping to avoid being in the position I was in the other day. Yeah, that fucking awkward, cover your ass position I found myself in during my meeting with your man. Here's how it all went down...

Last week, I was hired by the loveliest bride (and her mother, of course). After some intense conversation about their hopes and dreams for the wedding, we sealed the deal with some champagne and they signed my contract. I must admit, I was really excited about this one. This bride is super down to earth (totally not a bridey bitch at all!), and her mom is just the cutest mom ever; truly and honestly present to support her daughter.

Anyway... We discussed the usual... You know, the color palette for the wedding, a wedding theme, etc. We discussed how important the right venue, great food and great entertainment was to both of them. We talked about how important it was to sit at the table with great people, but not feel trapped there. Blah, blah blah... Basically, all of the shit that I usually talk about with the bride and groom, not the bride and her mother!
