You’re engaged, you’re incredibly excited, and at some point it hits you - you’ve got an entire wedding to plan, have no clue where to begin, and are feeling completely & utterly overwhelmed!  

Today on the Wedding Planning Podcast, we’re walking through a Master Wedding Planning Timeline to keep you on-task from engagement, all the way to the wedding day. 

Together we're going to break down planning your wedding into bite-sized, manageable pieces, and give you a master timeline of exactly what should happen, and when.

You don't need me to tell you that there's A LOT to organize, prep and manage in the months leading up to your wedding.  Most of us listening won't be using a full service wedding planner who handles everything from booking your vendors, to design decisions, contract negotiation, and everything in between.

This means that YOU need to morph into a pseudo wedding planner - and that’s where wedding overwhelm typically starts to creep in.

The good news is ... that I’ve got your back!    The Wedding Planning Podcast is designed to guide you, step-by-step through your wedding plans.  I’m here to take the guesswork out of hard decisions, shed light on wedding industry secrets, explore time and money-saving alternatives to common solutions, and fill you in on wedding planning blind spots, or things you might never have even thought of until it’s too late.

Today we're giving your wedding ceremony the time and attention it deserves, in a detailed show that covers everything from choosing your officiant, to writing vows, selecting ceremony traditions, and more.

Your wedding ceremony is a HUGE deal!  These 20 minutes or so are the WHY of the entire wedding, and yet the ceremony can get obscured by the million other things on your mind as you're frantically planning this wedding.

Be sure to stick around until the very end when I share a bonus tip to make your first kiss photo even more WOW-worthy!
