Today on the Wedding Planning Podcast, we're exploring some basic modifications to "traditional" wedding hosting formats that will result in MAJOR DOLLARS SAVED!

Tune in for easy ways to MAXIMIZE your wedding budget - aka get MORE of the things you want - simply by making a small adjustment here & there to your hosting format, timing, and/or season.


If you have the beginnings of a really creative wedding vision that you’d like to talk through to discuss overall feasibility, options, or pricing comparison - I have 1-on-1 wedding strategy calls available.

Here are some sample topics from couples I spoke with this past week:

>>> "Our budget has ballooned since booking a venue, photographer, and planner - what are some ways we can get things back under control moving forward?"

>>> "We want to rent an Airbnb and host our wedding at a national park - is that even possible?"

>>> "I got quotes from 3 planners and 4 photographers, and I'm feeling overwhelmed with all the information and not sure how to make our final decision."  

>>> "We have a unique wedding set up, and wondering what's better - a day-of, month-of, or full service wedding planner?"

>>> "I want to do our own flowers & bouquets, can you give me a simple roadmap for what to do and when?"

Visit today to book a single call / series of calls.  Earliest available call dates start March 20th.  Book now, they will fill up fast!
