Updated Vendor Links For New Readers!

Hey Party People!

If you're new to this blog, WELCOME!  I don't update it often because, well, I'm already married, BUT my google pageview stats tell me I still have readers. (Yay!) So I thought I'd share the links to the vendors we used just in case you guys need any recommendations. Happy planning!

Fuck Yeah Married People

"Fuck Yeah Married People" is a Tumblog I created and curate when I feel like it.

It's a humor blog mostly filled with pictures of married people being awesome. I consider it my reminder to the world (and to myself) that marriage doesn't mean you have to slow down or settle. Marriage is fucking amazing, and this is my (humorous but sincere) ode to it.

Here's an example of the kind of shit I post:


Thanks for checking it out, my fellow marrieds!

Straight Jacket Bride...

...rife with symbolism.

My Emmys Look

My Emmys Look





Hey there, people who are still reading this blog! I was nominated for a Creative Arts Emmy for the work I did on The Hashtag Killer for "Psych". This is the ensemble I wore. I wanted to post it here as inspo for a bride or bridesmaid look.


I ended up renting the accessories from Rent The Runway. I was nervous at first... What if I didn't like the stuff, what if it was damaged, what if it didn't get here in time??? But none of that happened. It went very smoothly. I highly recommend checking them out if you want some designer pieces for your wedding.


As for my dress: I first saw it on some crazy expensive designer site like Net-A-Porter and I believe it was priced at around $550. I didn't want to spend that much (my wedding dress was less than that!) so I scoured the Internet and found a "can't believe my eyes" deal at Neimans.com. The dress was on sale for only $191! But they only had it in a size larger than my usual. But I said fuck it, I'd probably have to tailor that thing anyway (online shopping, hello!) so I bought it. I spent 30 bucks on tailoring and it fit me like a glove.

Here's the entire look put together:

Me & Co-writer Dan Carter




After, I changed into some blue suede flats and went out drinking. Because when you pay to look that hot for a day and the night is far from over, you go out and strut your shit til last call. No exceptions. And then when you get home, be a weirdo like me and have a dance party photo shoot. 






We didn't end up winning, but who gives a shit?! I was nominated for an Emmy!

Househubby


I sincerely wish Mike was my househubby year round and didn't have to go back to teaching high school in September... because this was me today: 

"Sweetheart, could you drop off my UPS packages, pick up my prescription, get my car registration renewed, cancel the cable, sign our accounts up for autopay, change my address with the DMV, and find me a new doctor? K, thanks!"

And, yes.  He did all those sweet things for me today.  And did I mention he makes me dinner pretty much every night?  Yeah, my husband rocks.  Perhaps my handyhubby deserves a 'handy' for all his 'hard' work*.  I think so. 

*Come on.  It ain't a Bowie Bride post if it ain't dirrrty.
