Would you volunteer to host a holiday party for 40 people and then rush out to the store with no menu planned & no shopping list? No!  You’d sit down and plan out a menu of app's & drinks, look up some recipes, and then make a detailed list of exactly what you need to buy. So why on earth would you head out to a wedding show / bridal fair with absolutely no plan, and just "see what happens"? Today on the Wedding Planning Podcast we’re going to take inventory of your priorities, and make a list of your top goals for your day spent at the wedding fair.  This way you can...

More Episodes

This week's episode of the Wedding Planning Podcast is designed to focus on the most critical part of your wedding day - your wedding ceremony.  

In the midst of wedding planning chaos, the ceremony can get pushed to the end and miss getting the full attention and creativity it deserves. 

Do yourselves a favor & start thinking about your wedding ceremony early ... don’t let this become a last-minute item on your wedding planning to-do list!  

Your wedding ceremony is literally the WHY of the entire wedding day, and today we're going to review:

  • Ceremony flow of events,
  • Finding an officiant, 
  • Your wedding vows, 
  • And finally some additional ways to incorporate meaning and personality.

A well-crafted wedding ceremony will perfectly express your relationship as a couple.  It should make your guests understand exactly why they are at the wedding, and may address the couples past, present and future. 

We can be serious, lighthearted, traditional or a mix of all three - your ceremony doesn’t have to follow any script, and you’re free to personalize this portion of your day in any way you like!

Tune in for so much more, and be in touch with any stories, questions or thoughts by sending me a DM @weddingplanningpodcast !
