    Why Prenuptial Agreements are so Savvy

    Why Prenuptial Agreements are so Savvy

    This week we are discussing prenups. You probably aren’t thinking about prenups while you’re basking in that newly-engaged glow, but today we're talking all about why you should consider one before you head down the aisle. We hope this discussion can help clear up common misconceptions about the process, and ditch the stigma over something that can actually be very practical.
    With us today are Julia Rodgers and Sarabeth Jaffe, the co-founders of Hello Prenup, the premiere online platform for prenuptial agreements. It was developed by legal professionals working in the family law field, under the direction of seasoned divorce attorneys with decades of experience in drafting and defending prenups. The ease of use and total cost of working with HelloPrenup makes this such a savvy option for any engaged couple!

    Accommodations, Transportation, and other Wedding Logistics

    Once the major details are in place for your wedding day, there are some other logistics you’ll need to organize, like hotel room block reservations, group transportation, or even seating charts.
    If you’re working with a limited budget, you may not be spending as much money or time on these details, but they are still important to consider since they could affect your guests.
    This episode will help you organize your wedding logistics, from where you’ll stay on your wedding night to how you’ll get to and from the celebration and so much more.
