    When Things Go Terribly Wrong ... Preparing for Unforeseen Wedding Mishaps

    A LOT of our energy during the wedding planning process is centered around the fear that things will go wrong, and how we can avoid and prevent minor mistakes - and major disasters - on our wedding day.  
    I’ve been deeply involved with weddings for over a decade, and candidly, it’s a universal truth - no matter how much you plan and prep and delegate and assign, something will go wrong and / or not according to plan at some point during your wedding celebration.  
    The good news is that big or small, I have some solid practices that you can use right now to be able to adapt, improvise, and mentally overcome any unforeseen issues & challenges that are bound to arise.

Best podcast for brides!

I started listening to this podcast when I first got engaged. It was amazing because I learned so much in a short amount of time. I got engaged in feb. 2023 and I’m getting married in July! I needed all the help I could get and she made it relaxing which is incredible because wedding planning, for me atleast has been very stressful. I’m so grateful for the free advice and tips to make my upcoming wedding amazing and less stressful!

Too Repetitive_Same Sponsor

As a bride, I was thrilled to find this podcast to help me with tips on my wedding planning journey. The more I started listening, the more I realized how repetitive it is. Every podcast shouts out Susan’s Services. Again, repetitive. Now lately 90% of episodes are available only for paid accounts. Website is very basic as well with zero info on it.

Feel so bad about this but…

I’m so surprised by the high ratings of this show. I’m listening to a lot of wedding podcasts and this one is so full of fluff I have a hard time hearing any concrete advice. Extremely repetitive. Just because you rephrase the same sentiment it doesn’t mean you can share it 500 times. I almost want to run a transcript through ChatGPT and ask it to distill main points. I don’t think I’d find many. It’s awful.
