Why Wedding Blogs Suck, and How I Would Avoid It

A quick Google for wedding blogs brings up over 475 million results.  Let that sink in for a minute. that’s more than the entire population of the United States, and granted, it’s not like each result equals a wedding blog, but I think we can all agree that there’s a lot of them.  There are as many different kinds of wedding blogs as there are weddings, basically meaning they’re infinite, and regardless of what kind of wedding you want to have, you’ll find a blog that caters to you. Funny thing is, even though the wedding blog pool is insanely varied, they usually have quite a few things in common, that they all do, and personally, I hate...

Twilight Sparkle is Best Bridezilla

I am an unabashed fan of My Little Pony. I could go on for ages about all the reasons why I love it, but this isn’t the place to do so. For those who care, Spoilers lie ahead, for those that are really confused, hang in there, this will all come back around to weddings and make sense, I swear. So, the season 3 finale was on this weekend. Just like every weekend I can, I was curled up on the couch watching TV, threatening dismemberment to anyone who would dare disturb my 22 minutes of solitude. Now, what was really controversial about this particular episode, is the adorakable unicorn, Twilight Sparkle, was going to be turned into an omnipotent alicorn princess....

You’ve probably done more than you think

You’ve probably done more than you think

A big part of what I do is consult based.  I have clients who can’t afford my day of or wedding planning packages, but they feel so lost, with no sense of direction, and they need something, anything to kick start them.  They see all the lists of all the things that need to be done, the options they have to choose from, and they are completely and totally convinced that they don’t have a clue.  Being desperate, they call me, often in tears, because they have no idea what they’re doing, and emphasize that they have no clue what they want.  And wouldn’t you know it, every time, they realize that they had more planned, that they know what they do...

Wedding Relaxation Commandments

subtitle:  Ang wanted to post memes & gifs. I’m a pretty flexible, laid back kind of person.  This is obscenely helpful when my clients are pretty stressed, I’m like a living breathing chill pill.  And while I LOVE helping my clients relax and enjoy this whole process, unfortunately I haven’t been hired by the entire universe, and I have some tips that help make the planning process somewhat less chaotic. 1. Your Life is NOT About the Wedding It’s not.  Your relationship with your partner, family, friends, whatever, is going to continue well after the wedding is over.  Make sure to keep building and strengthening that relationship during...

Pulling the Trigger

If you’ve poked around my site very much, you’ll see I very adamantly insist you do NOT need a planner.  Because you don’t.  I have a real issue with the scare tactics many wedding industry pros use to say “OMG if you don’t hire me, your wedding will end in epic disaster, and you’ll never forgive yourself.”  But, I’m all about authenticity, and I’m going to be honest with you.  Sometimes that’s exactly what happens.  Not going to lie, it scares the crap out of me.  To know the decisions I am responsible for can completely alter how the wedding goes.  Fortunately my gut is pretty accurate (Most likely...

A most likely controversial post on tipping

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...
