For today’s guest post I asked one of my favourite bloggers and recent bride-to-be Britt of Bowie Bride to write me a little sommat sommat. I am VERY excited as I’m going to be blogging the full report on her “ballstastic Rock n Roll wedding” just as soon as her pro pictures are ready, so I thought a little word from the lady herself might be nice way to whet your appetites for seeing her killer wedding in full!
(I blogged their engagement session here)
Britt wrote about something that I KNOW a lot of you will struggle with when planning your weddings (hell, I know I did) – thoughts like “Am I Rock n Roll enough?”, “How are my family going to react?”, “Will people approve of our choices?” Well sit back and listen to Auntie Britt, because she of the “no holds barred, titstastic” wedding fame is here to kick you into shape!

I’ll just be straight with you. I had a kickass, no holds barred, titstastic, totally madhäus, rock n roll wedding, and I couldn’t be happier with the way it all turned out. But I’ll be honest… if you showed pictures of our wedding to ‘the me’ 5 years ago, I would havebeen shocked to see how “alternative” it ended up being. I would have said, “Yeah right. We’re not nearly rock n roll enough to dream that up, let alone have the balls to pull it off! What would our families think?!” I have always considered myself to be unique, and I generally accredit my stark open-mindedness to my career in the arts, my hippie parents and my love for all things rock n roll (music or otherwise). But the power to outwardly exude a rock n roll attitude and lifestyle didn’t really happen for me until I started planning our wedding. Let’s just say that when I said “Yes” to my husband’s proposal 1.5 years ago, I wasn’t just saying “yes” to a life married to him; I was also saying “yes” to making grab-life-by-the-balls changes that, prior to that moment, I had been too afraid to make. I wanted this new chapter in our lives to be led by bravery as opposed to fear. In other words, the rock n roll-ness in me needed some serious unleash-age. So to all you brides out there who consider themselves on the cusp of being rock n roll, this article is for you.
