You’ve found the perfect wedding dress - congratulations!!!

Today on the Wedding Planning Podcast, we’re doing a thorough review of all the "post-dress shopping" to-do items.

Our conversation covers the dress alterations process in detail, including pricing, money-saving tips, a timeline for when to get started, and alternative options for having your dress altered.

We also cover:

  • What's a bustle, do I need one, and how much does it cost? (article on bustling I mentioned in today's show can be found )
  • Pre-wedding weight loss & gain,
  • Styling and shape wear options like bras, corsets, and compression garments,
  • The importance of COMFORTABLE SHOES,
  • Getting your dress home & last minute wrinkle patrol (the handheld steamer I mentioned can be found )
  • And some creative ways to preserve and / or repurpose your gown after the wedding.

I hope you love it, and congratulations on that beautiful dress!

There’s A LOT of conflicting information out there about tipping your wedding vendors, and I want you to forget all of it! 

In today’s episode, we’re going to walk through exactly how to decide who should get a tip, how much, and even some extra special additional ways of saying thank you.

Today’s show is Wedding Planning Podcast classic, and we’re going to take a close look at some very common misunderstandings that are flying around out there surrounding tipping your wedding vendors.

Think you have to automatically package up envelopes with 20% tips for every single wedding vendor you hire?  Think again. 

Today I’m gonna save you hours on google, and likely hundreds - if not thousands - of dollars over that crazed couple who just takes the advice out there on tipping at face value and doesn’t bother taking the time to explore the nuances and undercurrents that are actually at play.  

So come along with me, and let’s uncover the TRUTH about tipping your wedding vendors!
