Wedding planning is fun, but brides and grooms need to know the "real-deal" in order to help them plan the best wedding possible. This podcast, hosted by Alessandra Macaluso, author of The Real-Deal Bridal Bible, gives you useful tips for wedding planning and everything you need to know to plan the ultimate wedding that's best for YOU. She and her guests speak about everything: how to get in shape for your wedding, how to communicate with your in-laws and navigate tricky family situations, how to negotiate with vendors, how to plan your wedding budget, what to look for when choosing a reception hall, the best places to honeymoon, what's new in the wedding industry, discounts on bridal and wedding items, how to save money while planning your wedding, relationship advice, how to select your bridal party, and much, much more.
If you are planning a wedding you'll ask yourself obvious questions, like where would I like to get married? What dress will I wear? And, where should we honeymoon? But unexpected little buggers will also pop up, such as: Why is my bestie acting like she swallowed four Xanax and washed them down with three mimosas? Why does my mom’s face twitch like that when I talk reception ideas? How come everyone shares opinions, without me asking? And, upon finding yourself locked in a closet: What are the going rates for a room for two at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Vegas? Planning a wedding can be a wonderful time in your life, but it can also be overwhelming. And the whole process has a funny way of bringing out the crazy in everyone around you. The Real-Deal Brides podcast will prepare you for everything you need to know -- the REAL things -- so you can plan the wedding that best reflects you while keeping your sanity, finances, and relationships intact. Whether you are thinking about marriage, are engaged, or are well past your wedding, you will find entertainment and advice in this podcast which you can use long after the last dance.
This podcast is based off of Alessandra's book, The Real-Deal Bridal Bible, available on Amazon.
"How I wish I'd had this book to save me back when I got married!! It's the perfect survival guide for not going insane while planning a wedding!" - Jill Smokler, New York Times Bestselling author of Confessions of a Scary Mommy "When you're ready for the marriage but fear the drama of planning a wedding, do yourself a favor and read this book. And make sure you stockpile it and do the newly-betrothed in your life a favor by making it their very first engagement gift." - Kim Bongiorno, New York Times Bestselling author, married since 2003 "A warm, funny, engaging, and comprehensive guide to planning your big day. This book focuses on all aspects of the event, and also includes intelligent and insightful commentary about the relationship that the wedding will celebrate. Buy for yourself, your sister, your friend, or, if you want to be the cool mother-in-law, for your son's fiance." - Samantha Rodman, Ph.D, founder of DrPsychMom.com and author of How to Talk to Your Kids About Divorce
