Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Happy Anniversary to Me!

So... I decided to take the week off, brideys. I wasn't going to, but I desperately need a break... A break from wedding planning, event planning and work in general (BB too). I kinda need to check out and focus on my family. After all, it is Thanksgiving, right? And I am thankful to be in Chicago with the fam about to eat yummy food and drink yummy booze.

Although, as you can tell by the pic, it is also my 10 year wedding anniversary. Yup! Ten years ago today, my hus and I sneaked to Las Vegas and eloped. Holy SHIT! It's been ten years!! We've come a long way from the dude I met in the bar to the dude who I consider the love of my life. Right? Whoa... Cheesy, but true!

Well, bridey, if you miss me, feel free to browse the archives, FaceBook me, follow my tweets from Chicago or check out my pins... Because those are addictions I must feed, whether I check out or not.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

XO,

BB

Bitchless Bride is in Las Vegas!

Hey brideys! This girl is taking a much needed vacation! And if you haven't guessed, the hus and I are off to Las Vegas and will be staying in a lovely room at the Bellagio. Don't worry, even though I won't be posting this week, I will be tweeting, pinning (and eating, drinking, and maybe even some gambling), etc., so be sure to check in with BB because I'll definitely be cataloging my debauchery!!

Here's to a FAB week, brideys!!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Retro Elopement in Vegas!

I love this couple! Seriously, I love them so much... And maybe it's because I'm a teeny tiny bit partial because I also eloped in Las Vegas, but seeing how they look at each other makes me feel like I know them! Or like I just want to be near them. Does that make any sense? C'mon! You know what I mean! Anyway... Tara and Tim met through friends, and just one year later, they got hitched! Amazing right? But, bridey, when you know, you know. Right?

The other thing I love? Their style. Tara looks stunning with her gorgeous makeup, the birdcage veil and her cool ass dress, and Tim rocks Vegas in his a fedora and suspenders. Check it out!

Look how pretty Tara is without makeup! As a self proclaimed girly girl, this chick looks hot even without the frills...  

I just LOVE Vegas. A picture with the sign is a must!

These two photographs make me happy. The emotion shining through the details is just beautiful. (Yes, BB can get a bit mushy... occasionally, bridey! Don't get used to it!)

Super Stylish Sunday ~ Eloping... Bitchless Bride Style

Brideys, I've been quite honest regarding the details of my own wedding, haven't I? You all know I eloped, right? Well, I did. So, I thought I'd show you how it's done if that's what you are planning to do. I must say, the only thing that I find annoying to this day is how many people ask us if Elvis married us... Really. No, Elvis did not fucking marry us... We just love Vegas, so that's where we wanted to get married. Because it meant something... Just us... Nobody else.

But, beware, I do have a few teeny tiny regrets that I will be sharing with you so if you've booked your tickets, then take some notes, bridey. Hopefully my experience will help you avoid regret and focus on what's important, you (and your man)...

Because everybody should take a picture on an old Mercedes! Just kidding, but I do absolutely love her dress, hair and shoes so I thought I'd show them to you.

This is a BIG one, bridey. I REGRET not wearing an actual wedding dress! I wore a bridesmaid dress that I purchased a week before the trip, and I totally regret not wearing a fabulous white dress. So, check out the two wedding dresses above. They are fantastic! Do yourself a favor and wear one!
