The Dress!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Super Glamorous, Super Luxurious Australian Wedding

Can I get a "OH MY GOD"? I mean... Just look at this photograph!! It's absolutely, insanely gorgeous! Right? I don't even know where to begin with what I love most about this stunning table and décor! Bridey, did you happen to see the wedding favors? Each guest got a bottle of Moët! Kinda beats a wedding cake shaped cookie, doesn't it?! Look, don't get me wrong, I love a good cookie wedding favor, but I love a delicious French champagne much, much more! Anyway, it was truly hard for me not to showcase every picture in the album, but, somehow I managed.

Bridey, I can hardly put into words how I feel about the totally fucking GORGEOUS flowers (more than 2,000 individual flowers were used in Kristi & Steve's wedding) or the metallic gold wedding cake or the two wedding dresses Kristi wore or the black dance floor, or or or!!!! The list goes on and on!!! I will let Kristi, the cool and beautiful bride, tell you a little bit more about the inspiration for this A MAZ ING wedding. Enjoy!

WOW! Look at those two dresses!

D.A.M.N.

Confetti.

That is one hell of a train!

Bridey, you know I am a sucker for how the B+G look at each other during the ceremony. And this is completely tear jerking! All the way from childhood sweethearts to the altar...

Super sexy!!

My dream car (although I really just picture it in the kickass chase scene in The Bourne Identity!)...

Kristi: I wanted our guests to be blown away, by everything! With this in mind we really had no limits set; the more glitz the better! Thousands of flowers and hundreds of candles, we wanted every element of our wedding incomparable and unforgettable.

Don't you love how the cake is reflecting the lighting?? Amazing!!

Kristi: Our wedding was glamourous! The fact that I wore multiple different dresses on the day probably showcased that. We also focused our wedding décor around the contrast of gold and different shades of red. Our reception included over 2,000 individual flowers which really popped against our clear glass furniture and gold detailing. I really do think that glamourous is the best description.

Um. OMotherFuckin'G!!! I can't... It's too good... W.O.W. FIVE layers of gold...

I mean... Kristi! You look sensational! I can't keep my eyes off of your bum!

Kristi: My dresses were very important to me; I couldn't decide between having a big princess dress, or having a more sexy, fitted dress... So in the end I decided to combine both! I also wanted to wow our guests with ANOTHER dress for the cutting of the cake, so I chose to literally match my dress with the cake and have gold detailing throughout. 

Thank you Kristi and Steve for sharing your utterly breathtaking, glamorous wedding with Bitchless Bride!

Fantasy Friday ~ A True Fantasy... A Stunning Italian Wedding

I have been lucky enough to be married to my hus for 10 years. TEN YEARS!! OMG! No, I’m not an old lady; I just took the leap at a young age! But, anyway… Although we eloped to Las Vegas, a few years ago on Bitchless Bride, I wrote about what my fantasy wedding would have been had we decided to be a bit more “traditional”. And while I would still love for Prince to play at the reception, I have to admit, when I saw Julie and Deneb’s wedding submission come through, I think that perhaps I’ve changed my mind because their wedding is exactly what I would want mine to be, today.

Andrea, the talented photographer, shot this wedding in Gavi, Italy (in the Piedmont region, not too far from Milan) at a venue called L’Ostellier. Um, not only is this a beautiful location, but also, they make their own wine!! A MAZ ING! (My hus and I honeymooned in Italy, and I swear I could have stayed there for the rest of my life!) Julie and Deneb’s wedding was not only stunning, but amazingly romantic… Scroll down… You’ll see! Bridey, if a destination wedding is your plan, I highly suggest Gavi, Italy!! Enjoy!

I'm absolutely OB SESS ED with the invitations!!! Julies's mom made her dress. Talk about DIY!!! It's incredibly beautiful!This is a first for me. I have never seen a photograph of somebody cutting a wedding dress (on the day of the wedding). Although, I am assuming that it's Julie's mom, and considering that she made the dress, I guess it's okay!!The flowers are stunning, but look beyond them... That's one hell of a backdrop!!!Friends of the B+G...Julie's dad officiated the wedding... Sniff sniff...You'll see...

It's a Nice Day For a White Trash Wedding

I need to write about something funny after watching the horror from last Friday, and the news coverage from the weekend. Like most of you, I’ve spent the last few days digesting the complete evilness of one disturbed human being, and continue to be in shock and deep mourning for the people in Connecticut. So, I’m sharing with you a story that is so incredibly trashy, that you can’t help but laugh. And I think we all could use a good laugh right now. Right? Actually, if I’m honest, I swore that I wouldn’t write about this experience because of how trashy this wedding was, but now… I just don’t care. So enjoy this real life anecdote about a batshit crazy bride, her completely drunk husband and her very rich daddy.

 

Read Between the Lines

You know what’s NOT pretty walking down the aisle? You. You with your tan lines… Yeah… Tan lines in your beautiful, expensive wedding dress. Think about it… you probably spent a pile of money on your hair, makeup, personal trainers, facials, etc. so that you would look and feel incredible on your big day and frankly, I find it truly amazing how you can fuck it all up with those hideous tan lines. Seriously, you end up looking like some whore on the walk of shame instead of some bride walking down the aisle on her wedding day.

From Strapless to Fabulous

Girls… sorry to say, but not all of you should wear a strapless dress on your wedding day. Yeah, yeah I know I’m a bitch, but listen to me! I am pro woman, and pro all of that shit, but truth be told, YOU will be at your best on your wedding day if you listen to your instincts (or to me). If those bridal boot camp classes never happened or if you didn’t lose the weight you wanted to before the big day, it’s okay… just be sure to get the right wedding dress for your figure.
