GET UPDATES FROM Bitchless Bride
 
Bitchless Bride is a straightforward, foul-mouthed wedding planner emeritus. She has been in "the industry" for almost two decades and is tired of being nice. Tired of entitled brides getting a free pass to behave in a certain way because they are getting married. So, BB is sharing her point of view with an inside look at the bridal chaos we call a wedding.

Don't worry brideys, you will learn a tremendous amount about planning your wedding, but consider it to be free advice without the bullshit.
