The Road to Mrs. – Honeymoon…mini-moon…some kinda moon!


Before I truly began wedding planning, like really understanding how everything associated with the word “wedding” is marked up by 1000%, I figured we would have a wedding and then take a two-week honeymoon backpacking through Europe or possibly laying amid the beautiful blue waters in the Maldives…It’s a good thing my dreams don’t get crushed on a regular basis, otherwise the reality that what I envisioned for our honeymoon just isn’t going to come to fruition would be completely devastating! Fortunately, I’m pretty good at being uber resourceful and finding ways to make something out of nothing — in this case that nothing being our honeymoon budget. #sigh [Read more…]

The Road to Mrs.- Adventures in Wedding Planning Part III

A custom creation from Tart Bites

After two days of smelling roses and pricing candelabras, it was time to taste some cake! Cake tasting, albeit, not the best for my waistline, has certainly been one of the more enjoyable aspects of wedding planning. For our cake tastings, my planner Christina lined up two appointments. Our first tasting was held at a popular upscale bakery with several locations throughout Los Angeles specializing in wedding cakes and other decadent desserts. Upon arrival, we met with one of the bakers who handed us a book of various cake flavors and told us to go at it. [Read more…]

MARS VS VENUS CRITIQUES A BRIDAL LOOK

Kelly Rowland red carpet

What do you think of Kelly Rowland’s Labourjoisie gown at the 2016 Billboard Awards?

Mars thinks -Wow! Just wow. Our loyal Mars vs. Venus followers should already know that I have a “thing” for Kelly (perhaps an understatement). Although a bit risky, I think this dress would be an excellent selection by a bride (with the body to slay) on her big day. The body hugging, fitting combined with the see-through panels is sure to capture all of the attention, without losing taste points. I’ll probably get in trouble with my wife if I say anything else.
