Bitchless Bride on Rock n Roll Bride: Communication is Key
July 16, 2012
You may have seen me talk about
Bitchless Bride before, especially on twitter. She is my new wedding industry hero! The alter ego of a wedding planner (and no, even I don’t know her true identity!) who was sick to death of crazy bridezillas and mental wedding vendors, she set up her blog to give it to us STRAIGHT. I loooove her. She’s a hoot. And hell, she rocks a pink wig. We’re definitely destined to be BFFs.
I just about wet my pants with excitement when her video guest blog landed in my inbox. Some exclusive
Bitchless Bride on Rock n Roll Bride?! Hell. Yes. We are a match made in wedding heaven. Listen up brideys, listen up wedding suppliers, cos Bitchless is about to give it to you. No holds barred.
(FYI there are a few swears in here, if you’re at work… or you’re of a delicate disposition then you might wanna save this for later…)
She’s awesome right? Plus she speaks a lot of sense. I don’t know about you but I’d like to see some regular video blogs for Rock n Roll bride readers wouldn’t you?
You can read more of
Bitchless Bride‘s rants (they’re rants, yes, but they’re funny rants!) on her blog and check out more of her videos here.

The Rock n Roll Bride Venue Guide – London
October 16, 2010
I get loads of emails from you lot asking me advice on all manner of wedding planning related matters and while I'm easily able to reel off a long list of fantastic photographers I know or recommend some awesome dress companies, when it comes to wedding venues...well I'm as clueless as you are!
We had a massive drama with our wedding venue (they cancelled three months before our wedding day - but that's a story for another time!) so needless to say finding the perfect venue for your Rock n Roll wedding is not my speciality! However luckily for me (and you!)I know someone who knows all about the very best and coolest venues in the country. I asked my good friend Mary Herrington of Forever & Ever Events if she'd be able to start up a new feature for me, showcasing some of her favourite and most Rock n Roll wedding venues all over the country, First up London...

Almost exclusively the Green Room centres on the successful businesses, the people who run them and the strategies they employ to get, and stay, where they are. These are all super-important and you should be learning something from every article but we have absolutely neglected something equally critical from these pages. Something it took me too long and too much effort to realise on my own.
The Rock n Roll Bride Venue Guide – Manchester
November 13, 2010
Following the popularity of the first The Rock n Roll Bride Venue Guide, written by wedding planner and stylist Mary Herrington of Forever & Ever Events, I was keen to ask her if she'd be willing to do a bit of travelling for us and do some venue guides for the rest of the country. This month, Mary visited Manchester to bring you her reviews of the most kick ass venues for your Rock n Roll wedding!
Following the great response to my first venue post on London’s Rock n Roll reception venues, I now take you up north to Manchester, where the city and surrounding areas offer a truly eclectic mix of inspiring venues for a Rock n Roll wedding. As I did in my London venues post, my approach here is to recommend a variety of venues across the spectrum of budgets and aesthetics, from very cool historical architecture to vintage modern interior design to contemporary and modern dance halls. Remember that no matter where you have your wedding, if you put your personal stamp on it, the venue will come alive.
Stop Bartering Me!
June 29, 2012
You and your product are awesome. You feel you have set a fair price for what you offer and in the words of our Cheryl "You're Worth It" Then what's with all the potential clients wanting to barter with you? It can be utterly soul destroying to be repeatedly asked to lower your rates because somebody else up the road is doing the same thing as you for less.
Why You Should be Hated: A Guest Post by Chris Barber
June 22, 2012
Perhaps supported by some kind of celebrity culture, but it seems to be widely accepted that in order to be deemed as 'successful' in mainstream society you have to be liked by as many people as possible. You have to have a certain number of 'likes' on your facebook page. You need as many followers as possible on twitter and your most recent blog post is only as strong as the number of comments that sit at the bottom of it. While this is not all together wrong, I'd like to start thinking about the other side of the coin for a minute.

"Well, it doesn't really have anything to do with cake. Shouldn't it be something a bit more 'cakey'?" he said. I was really excited to be sat in my first proper 'grown-up' business meeting, up until this moment.
It was my first year as Restoration Cake and I was trying to get to grips with the concept of charging strangers for my creations. The afternoon was to be spent with a colleague who knew all the financial stuff. I went to the meeting with a website, a Twitter account, a growing list of orders, and a name.
Help! My Fiancé & I Have Very Different Tastes – How Can We Style Our Wedding to Reflect Us Both?
May 7, 2012
Last week I received the following email from bride-to-be Tiffany...
Dear Rock n Roll Queen,
My name is Tiffany and I've been a quiet reader for a while. Reading your blog has always gotten me excited for my own wedding and I'm happy to say, that after 8 years, me and my fiance are going to get married. It'll definitely be diverse since his parents are Scottish, mine are American and he is Canadian.
But, I digress.
