Today, please join me for a detailed review of some critical LAST MINUTE wedding details that you’ll want to stay on top of in the weeks & days leading up to your wedding day!

Even if your wedding is still months away, this show is perfect for you to proactively make notes about some of the things you can anticipate in those final weeks before the big day.

Thank you to everyone who sent in your questions on Instagram - I’m going to incorporate as many of those as possible into this first part of the show, and in the second half of today’s show, I’m going to share a personal story about the week before my own wedding.  It’s a cautionary tale for keeping your slate as blank as possible in those final days!

We’re also going to do a deep dive into creating your reception seating chart, which is a last minute task that can cause some huge headaches & stress.

If you have a wedding coming up this fall or winter, you’re starting to feel the heat on getting things wrapped up and organized, like your final RSVP’s, seating chart, final dress fitting, and a million other little details that snowball in those last few weeks.  

A detailed blog post / show recap of everything we reviewed can be found here.

You’ve done months (maybe even YEARS) of wedding planning & preparation, and the big day is finally almost here!

Last stop?  Rehearsal dinner.

This week we’re reviewing everything you need to know for planning & hosting this extra special night with your family & friends.

We cover everything from the ceremony rehearsal itself to practical tips for hosting your loved ones afterwards.

DETAILED BLOG POST HERE --> www.weddingplanningpodcast.co/rehearsal

Naturally, I have a ton of creative alternatives to taking 50 of your closest friends & family out to eat at a nice restaurant ($$$).  Beyond just saving money, we’ll also cover:

  • When to start planning (hint - it might be earlier than you think!)
  • Personality-packed options for location and food selection
  • Tips for keeping the night on pace and organized
  • And meaningful touches that will be remembered beyond the wedding day.

This topic is so dear to me - I remember our rehearsal dinner as one of the most special nights of my life.  We grilled chicken, steak & veggies with our friends & family on the property where we got married, had all the fave drinks flowing, and a curated list of our favorite songs turned way up.  We laughed, talked & celebrated long past sunset, and it was a magical night. 

I wish all the same for you!
