Breakfast-for-dinner is a concept we can totally get behind. Especially when it's backed up by DC comics Converse, Mad Libs, handmade pinwheels, an awesome poem written by the bride's brother, …oh, and donuts instead of cake! Just watch out for the little heartbreaker in the suspenders on the dance floor. He's irresistible.
Rebecca, from Blush Celebrations, is the Seattle-based wedding planner who would literally give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. Or throw you a bachelor party… or geek out with you… In fact, she has so many awesome adventures in wedding planning stories, I thought I'd do a Q&A-style interview with her…
Now that the wedding is over, we have a list of 10 couples who came to the wedding, and did not give anything. It concerns me, because I am hoping that nothing got lost. I just don't want to mess something up (etiquette wise). And I don't want to ASK these people if they gave something, in case they didn't. But the WORST would be not thanking them if they did give something but we just didn't receive it. What do I do?
A little D&D, a little Lord of the Rings, and a whole lot of fairytale flourishes make this wedding a dream for any fantasy lover. We've also got sword arches, a sweet and teary first look, an element ceremony, a choreographed first dance, and a challenging custom-made dress (that was TOTALLY worth it!). Get out your Lembas bread and settle in for this one.
We've talked many times about the challenges that can arise when your wedding attendants are helping you organize your wedding, but I'm not sure we've ever addressed how you can get help from your bridesmaids or other wedding party members. It's a delicate dance, to be sure… you want help with your wedding, and ideally you want the people helping you not to hate you after it's all done. You can totally do it. Here's how.
The Empire ladies lost their collective minds upon first look at the wedding photos of Tribesmaid MizAnna and her "husfriend" C.A.L. from their Chapel Arts wedding in Vancouver, BC. Just wait until you see her whole outfit and peep his black suit with the surprise design on the back…
Some weddings just lull you into a safe and happy place where things work out and smiles abound. This wedding is your respite from a rough day: a sunny and warm afternoon in Tennessee, comfort food (Southern-style, natch), dried wildflower bouquets, and hand-written vows. The only thing that would make it better would be a pooch in a tux. Oh wait, they had him, too!
You might remember our Arizona-based sponsor Mike Olbinski as the storm chasing wedding photographer. But we've already talked about how he's a total badass adventurer who's willing to take chances to get amazing wedding photos. Let's talk about the more romantic side to Mike Olbinski's photography. Because Mike may know how to chase storms, but he sure knows how to capture emotions. From cheers to tears, these latest wedding photos of absolutely tug at my cold dead heart strings.
This certainly isn't my first day stomping down the glittering, campy road of sparkly-ass wedding shoes. Sequins! Rhinestones! Glitter! I've been down this path before.
Today, however, it's not just about sky-high sparkly drag queen shoes. (Although yes, I have included a pair from RuPaul's shoe line.) Today, in addition to my usual heels and pumps, I'm making a point to include a ton of glittering oxfords and boots for the dapper-footed among us. Because who says the femmes and drag queens should have all the mirror-ball fun?!
