You know how I feel about the dress shots.
But anyway....

The minute I came across this ruffly collar by golly I knew it was BCBG. Indeed, I had just fondled such a collar in my BCBG shopping exploits the other day!

A BCBG bride is a wise bride, if I do say so myself.

I do...

...find myself quite enamored with these centerpieces.
Oh yes. I quite like them indeed.

The Return of the Backyard Bash

The New York Times just published a very interesting article about the current trend of brides serving up down-home culinary favorites (burgers, fries, grilled cheese) right in their own backyards, rather than offering standard lobster tail extravagance under crystal-studded chandeliers.

The irony?

These more casual backyard celebrations actually end up costing WAY more than a standard hotel reception. It's simply a matter of keeping up appearances as couples try to avoid the social faux pas of flaunting their wealth during a recession.

Tsk tsk.

I'm sorry, but in my opinion, a carefully contrived "budget casual" wedding that costs an arm and a leg is even tackier than owning up to your caviar and Dom Perignon.

I don't...

...exactly understand the point of engagement photos.
You're getting married.
It's an awesome and incredibly big step.
Most likely, you'll have a (super pricey) professional photographer AT your wedding.
So, why are all of the brides-to-be so inclined to capture memories of themselves scampering through fields and lounging in kiddie pools?
no comprendo

I do...

...dig an all smiles ceremony.

...a bride with beer.

...and a first dance in Keds.

A Sweet Story

I'm not much for fancy schmancy invites - why waste your money on something people will promptly throw in the garbage? -and this sweet story, in a simple font, completely made my day.

Name of the Game: FUN

Rock some shades.

Drink it in.

Float on home.

Everything a wedding should be.
Less focus on "the Plan."
More focus on fun.

I found my dress.

You know what else I'm sick of?


We get it.
You're engaged.
That's why you have a ring.
No need to prance around with a giant helium reminder.

Oh my goodness.

I was just about to delete this silly billy blog... or merge it back into SK because I'm feeling so uninspired that I can barely handle posting at ONE blog, let alone two... when I realized that people have commented!

I never even saw them!

I feel so terrible... I could have SWORN I had the comments set to forward to my email.


Hello my few sweet readers. Your comments made me smile today! :)
