Today I’m sharing a snippet of a much longer conversation on wedding day food & drink that’s available in our paid member’s area, The Wedding Planning Podcast VAULT. 

For many families and friend groups where alcohol is an issue, some couples find it less stressful - and MUCH less expensive - to skip the beer, wine and cocktails altogether, & host a "dry" wedding. 

In these situations, no alcohol at the wedding means less drama, less cost, and less headaches - literally - for everyone.

To access the full premium show on Wedding Day Food & Drink, visit weddingplanningpodcast.co/vault

We spend 25 minutes together reviewing every single thing to keep in mind when planning out what to eat & drink on the big day ...

Not to mention, you also gain access to ALL past episodes related to catering, AND every other topic we've covered since the podcast began in 2016 - zero ad's, zero fluff, & on-demand access are yours to enjoy in The VAULT.

Thanks for being here with me today, and we'll talk again soon!

Cheers,
Kara
