The Bachelorette Season Finale Last Night

Spoilers ahead! Last nights “After the Final Rose” was a jaw dropper. We all know what could potentially “happen” during a Fantasy Suite date, but there’s a little part of us that doesn’t – unless it gets outed like it did last night. In the past, contestants like Emily Maynard and Sean Lowe have passed on the Fantasy Suite, whereas Juan Pablo clearly didn’t. With Andi, we weren’t quite sure. That is, until Nick – the runner-up aired out their dirty laundry for all to see asking her directly why she made love to him if she didn’t love him.

Embarrassing.

I’ve been reading on a couple of blogs today and there are a few different stances. Some are wondering if Nick slut-shamed her. Some are wondering if he had been dying to say something like that on live television because she had refused to see him since the show ended.

Here are my thoughts and I’ll try and condense them:

  • Nick seems like a pretty sensitive guy. He is dealing with a heartbreak or maybe it’s just for show, but he looks a little bit torn up. I don’t think he meant to slut shame her, but I think maybe for him (and there are many people that have this point of view!) being intimate in a relationship means a lot more to him than maybe for her. I don’t think it’s wrong for him to question that.
  • If it’s bitterness or resentment towards Andi, then yes – she’s right, it is definitely a low blow. It’s true that that is private and no one really needs to know that.
  • Thirdly, didn’t it seem like everyone was airing out her personal life last night on that episode? First, Nick then Josh and wanting babies? That’s what she gets for being on The Bachelorette I guess.

Overall, … I wish she would have ended up with Marcus. Okay, no. Nick was not the fan favorite throughout the show and I don’t know if people would have been all that happy if they had ended up together anyways. We finished another season though. We hope Andi’s happy. Please tell us who the next Bachelor is. I hope it is Arie.

Wedding Mondays

Happy Wedding Mondays everyone! I am pretty excited to be sharing this video with you all today because it happens to be a friend of my brother’s friend.

Hey Heing.

Typically, I am never really connected to the people that are in these wedding videos and in this case, I still am not, but that doesn’t change how I feel about what’s happening in them. This sweet wedding video shot in Seattle was done by Rainy Parade Films and it really tug at my heart strings watching it last week and so I decided to save it specifically for this moment.

Enjoy!

Wedding Mondays

I couldn’t wait to get home from work today just so that I could share this video with you all. We missed out on having a Wedding Monday last week, but I think that’s partially because this one was too good. In fact, it’s so good it makes up for two weeks instead of one. There is nothing that I didn’t love about Darren and Yvette’s wedding from the Geronimo balloons, the first look, the sparkly bridesmaids dresses, and of course the groom shedding a few tears. Okay, more than a few. Everything about this wedding is so wonderfully sweet.

Olivia Palermo Marries This Past Weekend

We couldn’t wait for Olivia Palermo to get married and we were sure that it was going to be the wedding of the year – we just didn’t think that it would happen this fast!

This past weekend, Olivia Palermo tied the knot to her longtime boyfriend German model Johannes Huebl in a small civil ceremony in New York. Wearing a simple Cashmere sweater tucked into a tulle skirt over white shorts, Olivia looked like the prettiest bride we’ve ever seen. The couple have been dating since 2008 when they met through mutual friends at a movie screening.

I am completely in love with this look.

Wedding Mondays

Okay so we’re a day late on the Wedding Monday, but at least we’re still having one, right? This week’s featured video is a special one because it highlights the wedding of Bethany Hamilton – the young surfer who lost her arm in a surfing accident years ago. Her “Soul Surfer” story was shared with the world through her film so we’re not only thrilled that we get to view the wedding of an inspiring young woman, but that she’s sharing her special day with everyone else! Her wedding in Kauai is stunning.

Song of the Day

Robin Thicke – Get Her Back

Love the song. Hate the video that aired out all of their dirty laundry. BLAH! If I were Paula, I would hate to see my texts to my s/o up in a music video.

Wedding Mondays

Good morning everyone! I’m extremely thrilled to be sharing with you a video of a couple that got married at such a romantic estate in Northern California – the Kohl Mansion. The video highlights some beautiful details from it, but you’ll also want to take a look at the photographs from the Style Me Pretty feature here.

Enjoy!

Wedding Mondays

I typically watch all of the wedding videos that I’ve missed from the week on Sunday evening. Last night, this was the first video I watched and from the start I just knew it was going to be one that I was going to love. The best part about destination weddings is that you’re inviting your friends and family to fly somewhere to celebrate with you for more than just a day! In this case, Ali and Zach had a whole wedding week in Tuscany. It’s hard to capture everything in a week, but I think the filmmakers did a pretty good job because they’ve packed all of the most important aspects into this 11 minute video for us. There aren’t very many photos from the Style Me Pretty feature because the couple is trying to get them shopped for a US magazine, but you can read all about the juicy details from the big event here.

Wedding Mondays

Happy Monday morning everyone! I’m really excited to share this wedding with all of you today for mostly one reason – this couple is from the Pacific Northwest!  I mean additionally, they’ve also got a pretty great video and charming details that helped make their special day one to remember. Also I’m always a sucker for crying groom. Who isn’t?

Wedding Mondays

I haven’t spent too much time toying with the idea of a destination wedding, but Amy and Michele have made it look flawless. With a destination wedding, I feel like you have the added task of not only planning your perfect day, but getting all of your guests there too! However, I’m betting the perks override the stress factors ie) a gorgeous setting and probably an incredible meal that you just couldn’t get in the states.

I absolutely love this romantic wedding video highlighted by Style Me Pretty.

Wedding Mondays

Oh boy, I just went back to the last official “Wedding Mondays” video we had and it was dated April 21st. This is probably the worst job I’ve done, but I promise you it’s not because I haven’t been keeping up with it. In fact, I’ve done such a good job of keeping up with it that we’ve just been throwing out the duds.

Not an excuse. Yow Yow! only wants quality videos.

I’m actually pretty pleased with this one that I’ve found today. I watched the entire video from start to finish without skipping (something else I haven’t done in a long time) and I was able to pick out several things that I loved about it.

  • The Father/Daughter dance
  • A snippet of the Vows
  • The dance floor party
  • Seeing all of the guests

What a great wedding to attend! Let’s hope that this streak of a non-existent Wedding Mondays ends here.

Rachel Bilson is Expecting!

Rachel Bilson is expecting her first child with longtime boyfriend Hayden Christensen. The two met in 2007 on the set of “Jumper” (a flop from what I can remember) and split up once in 2010, but reconciled three months after. The two have been together ever since. This is the first child for the both of them. I was still secretly holding out for a Rachel Bilson / Adam Brody reunion, but with him just getting married to Blair and her pregnant, I guess this just isn’t happening for us!

Facebook Puts A Relationship Target On Everyone’s Back

I was doing my Facebook thing the other day when I noticed on my friend’s profile that there was a little button next to his relationship status that said “Ask.” Now, I thought I knew the status of his relationship, but this button caused me to second guess that. I also was so curious about what would happen if I pressed it. Did they receive a notification? Probably. What did the notification say? I don’t really know. I toggled my cursor over it for a couple seconds before I decided against it. If I had done it, I would have to text this friend to let him know and explain it to him and that seemed like too much overhead to me.

So naturally, I waited for someone else to do it first and blog about it. Sure enough, Refinery29 had my back!

This comes up only for those people listed as single or who haven’t disclosed a status. When an inquiring mind wants to know more, he or she simply clicks the button and has the option to send a customized message to friends regarding their romantic life. They’ll receive a notification that someone’s asked about their relationship status, and they can choose to respond with an answer, update their profile, or simply ignore the request altogether. It seems there’s no way to nix this new add-on. 

The whole idea seems a little bit invasive to me. If someone I hadn’t talked to in a long time asked me with that button, I would feel pretty weirded out. And if a close friend did, I wonder why they just didn’t ask me in person! I don’t see a happy medium with this new feature, but I do find it quite amusing.
