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

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...

Wedding Primer: Engagement Rings

Kicking off our tradition series, I figure I’ll start at the place where most people assume “official engagement” begins, the Ring.  (Capitalization in lieu of being able to raise my voice a few octaves)  This isn’t going to be a place to discuss where engagement starts or anything like that.  It’s about the ring.  The reason that friends, family, and moderate acquaintances  think it’s OK to grab your hand and shove it up their eye cavity to see how much your fiance loves you (and silently compare it to what they have).  Many are the nightmare stories I’ve heard, of someone being excited about their love token, and having...

YAY NY Super Secret thing I forgot to post but is really super epic awesome

Yeah this is really belated.  I’ve been kind of ridiculously scary busy of late.  Much traveling and weddings to coordinate.  You know, work.  My bad. So it was a…….. DOCUMENTARY! This is only the teaser, and I am in it twice.  Once arranging champagne glasses towards the beginning, and at the end in the kitchen scene where everyone is laughing, you can see the back of my head.  I can’t wait til the full video is available. Check out the post on A Practical Wedding for the full write up.  And please, forward it to anyone and everyone.  Because it’s pretty freaking cool, all about equality, and as Genevieve says “Love is...

I’m NYC’d out (For now) a YayNY! post

There currently aren’t any pictures for this post, because I was too busy to take any. I’m sorry, I know it’s easier to read stuff with pics. So I drew some! YAY! (Click to embiggen) I have never been to New York City before, but August was the month of New York apparently. I had a wedding on the 13th in White Plains, but spent a day or two in Brooklyn with my client turned new semi-BFF Zan. (Only semi, because I don’t know if she reciprocates or not) We went shopping with the amazing Katie Jane, I went back to Zan’s apartment to nap.  Zan came home, yelled at me for not eating (This is a recurring theme by the way) so I went out and got a...
