Throwing monies at Moxie & Oliver

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...

Wedding Primer: Engagement Rings

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...

I’m supposed to do what now? A Wedding Primer series

I’m supposed to do what now?  A Wedding Primer series

I’m going to make an assumption here.  I’m going to assume, that many of you are getting married for the first time.  (Side note:  I have multiple clients who are getting married for the second or third time, so no judgements there, just trying to go by numbers.)  That you are being dropped into this chaos completely ignorant of pretty much everything, depending on tips from friends and family, bridal magazines and assorted blogs and websites.  Not knowing stuff is FINE, you’re new at this, no one goes into getting married with the intention of making a habit of it.  But ignorance of planning “stuff” can breed shame, especially when...

Interview with Katie Jane Photography

So I’m starting this new thing, where I interview people in the wedding industry, not only to help those of you who are planning see a little more into who these marvelous vendors are, but to get some questions answered too, and make your wedding planning easier. We’re going to start off with the ah-mah-zing Katie Jane Goulah of Katie Jane Photography, whom I adore, I worked with her on Zan & Stephen’s wedding, and she threw a party for me when I was in NY because she’s just freaking awesome.  Oh yeah and talented.  So without further adieu…   Ang:  Tell me about yourself. Katie Jane: *Laughing* Okay, Pretend we’ve never talked...
