A most likely controversial post on tipping

I have a soft spot in my heart for those in the service industry, even before I became a part of it.  As a result I always tip REALLY well, and I’m pretty forgiving of people as a whole.  As in, the waitress would have to wipe her butt with my steak in front of me in order to affect her tip.  So when clients ask me about tipping, my advice is pretty short.  “If you think they deserve more than you paid them, give them a tip.” I posted that on Twitter and was kind of taken aback at people begging me to elaborate.  Keep in mind I do NOT represent the wedding industry as a whole, or Miss Manners, and I’m weird and have my own ideas about this...

I’m a geek, but I have no game.

I had a long discussion with a client who’s really into gaming the other day, about what a geek/nerd I am.  You name your trope, that’s me.  If there was any doubt, here’s a couple pics of me, and I pretty much looked like this up until highschool.   I wore a business suit for my class pictures, and was the token geek the cool kids kept around for crib sheets, test answers, and to buy them things at the snack bar.  I got braces when I was 18 and wore them until I was 22, headgear included.  I’ve always been obsessed with computers, I code, love anime, comics, nerd books, and any other geek descriptions.  My husband’s best friend...

Throwing monies at Moxie & Oliver

Trying out something new here.  I troll the internet more than is probably healthy and as a result I find cool stuff.  Usually I end up bookmarking it, and the good stuff I’ll visit every once in awhile to drool a little, or *gasp* actually BUY something from them.  I thought it would only be fair to share these with you so you can drool over them too.  Now far be it from me to contribute to the already consumerist wedding culture, but some of the things I find will be awesome for adding wedding details, will make a killer gift, OR you can use them as sources for birthdays, anniversaries, or I love you presents (Never underestimate the power of a random I love...

Tips on remotely planning a wedding

Yeah, I know, I should probably work on the Wedding Primer series, or maybe finish editing the pile of interviews I have waiting for me.  But no, the muse has spoken and she has spoken through my analytics, so I must write! I make it a habit of going through my site analytics (obsessing about them really) to see what brings people here.  Well, one person got here by searching for “planning a wedding remotely”.  Since some of my keywords are “remote” and “wedding” well they came to my site.  And I had nothing for them.  I feel horrible.  So anonymous person who visited Tuesday from Plano Texas, I’m sorry, and this is for...

My thoughts on the elusive Bridezilla

My thoughts on the elusive Bridezilla

It’s almost impossible to plan a wedding, attend a wedding, mention the word “wedding” without someone bringing up Bridezillas.  For those who haven’t come across the term yet, it’s a mash up of Bride and Godzilla, meaning a rampaging destructive monster of a bride.  They’ve made TV shows about it, and featured it in films. Many brides live in fear of becoming a Bridezilla.  They do everything in their power to be as rational and compliant as possible.  They don’t want to make waves because they don’t want to be dismissed as a crazy harpy face.  Anytime they’re adamant about something, their loved ones roll their...
