Incredibly helpful!!

As a bride this podcast is so incredibly helpful and shares tons of insight on things brides don’t think about during the hectic life of a bride!! A lot of the topics she covers are things I would never know to think about!! I would love to hear an episode on accessories. How do you determine how much is too much and what accessories go best with your dress?
