NEXT Black wedding dress advice Show/Hide comments [ 18 ] OMG! I love it!!! Christie rocks to like the 1000th power! Great picture! And thank you Ariel! We rock, but not as much as you! 😉 Reply Aww, the perfect OBT covergirl 🙂 Reply This picture is FANTASTIC! I'm sure most grooms could relate to the sentiment too… "Not now dear, I'm far to engrossed in The Wedding Bible" Tee hee… Reply Woohoo! Redress is married! That photo is awesome and I totally share the sentiment- I probably would have thrown someone else's wedding without this forum. Reply That is a great photo! So need a pic of me on my wedding day with the greatest wedding book EVA too! Reply Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Reply Awww that's too cute! @~>~~ Reply Ha! I love it! I'm going to take a similar pic on my wedding day a year from now. Maybe we can start a trend with the OBBs and have a gallery of Brides holding the OBB book! Reply Angie: I fully support this idea! 😛 Reply grrr….. rumble…… why didn't I think of that! JK, I love that picture! It is so perfect. I love Phill's reaction in the background too. xo Reply Kathleen, find a way to photoshop it into the background! Gogo! 😀 Though honestly it's a really cute idea and would be great for engagement photo sessions too. Looks great! Reply Your book saved my ass way too many times Ariel! My husband told everyone that I had it with me at all times and he even read things in it to to help him out. My best friend is getting married next year and guess what I'm going to be getting the lady he's marrying soon? 🙂 Reply I smell a photo theme coming on… Reply Totally share this sentiment, thank you Ariel for the book, the website and the OBT! It is the best – I have started telling non-OBBers it's my "online wedding sanity oracle" 🙂 Reply LOVE IT!!! (The book, the site, the pic…) Reply […] Christy's classic "Just a minute, hon!" book shot? Check. […] Reply OMG…as an English Major/Event Planner, this shot speaks straight to my heart! Love it!
