The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Don't Go Breaking Our Hearts or Busting Our Balls

This post is tough because I TOTALLY get it. I really do. I get it because I deal with it EVERY.FUCKING.DAY. And, I'm telling you that I get it before I even explain what the hell "it" is JUST to cover my ass... So, here it goes. Bridey, shit is going to change. Your wedding plans are going to change. Your guest list will go up and down eighteen fucking times based on family dynamics or lack of guest list control (usually because of your mom BTW...). Your flowers will change a bazillion times based on personal preference, availability and design. Your wedding dress will be taken in and out or scraped completely, but the most irritating, never ending change that for some reason is expected to be "no big deal"? Guess... Duh, look up!

The menu. Bridey, there comes a point when it is up to you to get your shit together, and simply be done with your menu. The most annoying thing in the whole wide world is a bride who continually changes her menu all the way down to the week before her wedding. Be it the passed hors d'oeuvres, stations during the cocktail hour or even the damn salad before entree, it's coo coo. Many chefs, venues and caterers will try to accommodate (particularly if your numbers go UP), but there comes a time when it's just not okay to keep changing your fucking mind. When you're a week away from your wedding, all anybody in "the industry" cares about is the number of guests and how many of each...

So you saw "something really cool" at an event you were at last week. Forget about it. Somebody suggested "that you ought to do blah, blah, blah..." FORGET ABOUT IT! Seriously, don't go busting balls at the venue or with your caterer because now that stupid Philly cheese steak egg roll is "a must".

It's Real Wedding Wednesday Y'all.... Texas Style

{Couldn't you just bust?! I cannot get over this photograph!}

You thought a long distance relationship was difficult? Well, think again bridey! You know what's more difficult than a long distance relationship? Long distance wedding planning!! It's adds a whole other kind of stress to the planning experience. You are forced to have to depend on the other people to help you, and when you do make your way in town for a weekend, it's all about the wedding plans. And trust me brideys, that sucks! But, take the advice from our GORGEOUS bride, Jacqueline, and really TRY not to sweat the small stuff.

And you know what brideys? Jacqueline had a rather big issue she had to deal with (um, see question #7... WTF?!!), and if you look at these amazing photos, she listened to her own advice, and she didn't let it get to her! I mean, look at how amazing this wedding is! I am completely obsessed and amazed by this black, white and red wedding! Take notes my dears!!! 

1.Bridey, how did you meet your spouse? (The short and sweet version please.)

My hubby and I met during recess on the basketball courts in sixth grade (11 years old). My best friend and his best friend were playing basketball against each other for a bet to see if he would date me! Haha! Long story short my best friend lost, so I ended up dateless. After the game was over, the guy’s best friend (my hubby), approached me and introduced himself, and said “Man, that was a close game! My name is Travis!” And that is how it all started…

2. How long were you together before you were engaged?

9 years

3. What was the length of time between the engagement and the wedding?

9 months

4. Where did your wedding take place? (venue, city and state)

Wedding Ceremony: Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Sinton, Texas
Reception/Dance: San Patricio County Fairgrounds, Sinton, Texas (small town of less than 6,000)
