What’s Good Everyone?
Ok so a little about the website. For starters, we are trendsetters. We wanted to promote ourselves with a website that would inspire and keep you party ready. Now we know for a fact we will have our, well, haters and imitators and that’s all good. But in the end, those who think ahead prevail. We wanted to expand past the whole Facebook world. We want you coming back to this website time and time again, by providing you a soundtrack of loud, outrageous house music, visuals like pictures and video (both candid and professional), and insider access to the show. Facebook was just the beginning. This was the next phase. And like we said before, we think ahead so there’s plenty more where that came from.
So the show premiered without a hitch. I think it’s safe to say that Joey and I look pretty friggin’ good on camera. MBFW is going to be a great show that’s for sure. And there’s TONS of exciting things coming that may benefit our fans! We were able to provide both LIVE tweets and facebook post and thats just the begining. We hope you enjoyed our commentary…
Much thanks to Di Re’s Tuxedo in Franklin Square, NY. Joe, the owner, is the perfect character for a wedding show. Literally, I think Joey drove them insane but in the end, Joey found something unique, fashionable and perfect. Not going to tell you what color vest he got though. You’re going to have to wait.
And we want to thank Mario and Danielle at the Electric Beach Club, in Lynbrook, NY. They have the best tanning beds and by far the best selection of lotions ever. A tan is something that we thought was imperative in preparation for the wedding. I mean, you don’t want to be orange, but you don’t want to be pale either. Moderation people, moderation… If you must know, we prefer to use “Black” a tanning lotion that enhances your tan. Don’t ever tan without a lotion. You won’t get color and you will likely burn.
Ok, so in case your were wondering, yes, we had to have a blackout party. That was the 1st day of filming. We won’t begin to tell you the drama surrounding the first day of filming. We must have had a hurricane or something because not only did we lose power for almost 9 hours, but half our guest list couldn’t even get to our house! Trees were down everywhere, there was flooding, thunder, lightning, freezing rain and it was dangerous. You would have thought the world was coming to an end. However, we still partied strong, in the dark nonetheless and it was all good. We know how to throw a party that’s for shit sure. Ask anyone we know; we are the king and queen of parties.
Some interesting information and advice:
We started working on My Big Friggin’ Wedding prior to the other couples, with Johnny and Megin right behind us. We never met the other couples until recently at a photo shoot for the ads that you are seeing EVERYWHERE (supposedly). The both of us took this project on to show America (and some other parts of the world) what wedding planning was really like. Its not all fairy tales and hearts; it’s a second job. So you can imagine the stress that is involved when planning a wedding. Now add cameras. Yeah, it was rough.
We always tell everyone to enjoy being engaged. It’s the best time of your life. With several of our friends recently taking the plunge (congrats! We love you guys and we are there for you!), we understand the feelings and emotions that they are going to experience along the way. It’s the most exciting, exhilarating and wonderful thing in the world! But there will be days when you’re ready to kill each other over something as stupid as a tuxedo vest color! And let me tell you, it’s NORMAL. Don’t let those idiots out there tell you otherwise. They happen to be living in a dream world. And they need a therapist.
So if you’re a bride or groom to be, and you have questions or need advice, post it on the wall at www.facebook.com/joeyandsandra or post it here. We have seen it all. Trust us, sometimes it’s not pretty! Just take Joey’s advice and “Don’t Do IT!” j/k >;-)
