Livmarch ,

Helpful show!

I’m not the target audience for this show, but I was thrilled to listen to a few episodes. The show is very helpful and the hosts are engaging. I will be sending the show to anyone I know getting married!

the fallible man ,

Must Listen if you are getting hitched

I wish this had been around when I got hitched. Something for every step of the wedding planning. Watch out wedding planners, there is another way to get it all squared away.

emjay217 ,

Great resource

What a great resource for engaged couples before the big day. There are so many episodes to choose from that there seems to be something for nearly every “random” situation engaged couples face when planning their weddings.
