Deserving of NY Times accolade, BEST Wedding Podcast!

I love Christy and Michelle! They feel like girlfriends as they guide you through the crazy world of wedding planning. They are funny, compassionate, creative, and provide thoughtful, comprehensive advice on all things wedding related. I actually enjoy their banter and I've been loving the weekly Instagram Live sessions they've had. I'm one of those brides who decided to plan their wedding in ~ 6 months and had everything planned within 1 month with the help of these ladies (which was great, until COVID happened!). Even then, their support for brides going through this tough time has made things seem more managable. You guys are truly the best, I'm a proud patron and appreciate the monthly bonus episodes and special newsletters each month. Please keep creating this wonderful content, I love you guys!

BEST WEDDING-RELATED PODCAST I'VE FOUND!

Love this podcast! Christy and Michelle are so full of smart insight and generously give great advice on to anyone planning a wedding or simply wanting to learn more about all the layers of wedding planning. I also appreciate their efforts to be inclusive - because everyone can celebrate love! To top it off, they are a joy to listen to - no wedding shaming here!

RELEVANT and FUN!!!!

These gals know EXACTLY what they’re talking about when it comes to weddings. They don’t give out-of-touch info that you would get from a Martha magazine...so listen and learn!

Absolutely amazing 10/10

I’m not even planning a wedding! I just wanted a pick-me-up during this quarantine and I found it! Listening to this podcast makes me feel like I’m hanging out with close friends. Plus I get to learn things for whenever I do end up getting married!

A REAL Wedding Podcast

I’m not gonna lie, when I first started listening I was a little bit put off by the banter at the beginning of many episodes but as you listen more, these ladies become more like friends and you realize how REAL this podcast is. Their last episode about keeping your sanity during a pandemic really struck a cord with me. I am a teacher so I am still thankfully employed and have an income. But the pandemic has made wedding planning very depressing. How can I look forward to something when so many other brides are living through a worst case scenario (when it comes to their wedding at least)? I can’t even really talk to vendors at this point. It’s driving me a little nuts considering all the free time I have. However, this reminded me that it’s ok to be sad and thankful at the same time. It doesn’t make you a bad person. Finally, I really appreciated that you spent time talking about those who are alone during this time. A friend of mine was recently widowed at a young age and has spent this whole time alone, while having just lost her husband a few months ago. It really hit home that these ladies think of everyone from all walks of life, even though it’s a podcast about wedding planning. There are many wedding podcasts out there, but these women make a choice to be bold, honest and to have a voice on issues beyond what color palettes should you choose. Thank you for being real in an industry can sometimes fantasize everything. I look forward to continuing to listen.

Fun, Engaging, De-stressing Podcast!

I absolutely love this podcast! I actually started listening months before I got engaged (does that make me crazy?. I love hearing the process behind wedding planning and all the work that goes into these magical days. I recently got engaged at home (#covidproposal) and am now loving listening even more. I am having the classic issues that Christy and Michelle discuss on the podcast, and am dealing with them in a more thoughtful and calm way than I would have otherwise. It makes me feel way less stressed to know that a lot of brides/grooms deal with similar problems when planning. I've only been engaged 2 weeks but have already thought back on and appreciated the advice from the episodes on guest lists, kids at weddings, choosing a photographer, and planner! The part I love best about the podcast is how inclusive it is! I am marrying a wonderful Hindu man and I love how this podcast doesn't stick to the "traditional" wedding script- we can apply everything to our fusion wedding. Thank you Michelle and Christy!!!!!!!!!

Very informative

The hosts are not judgmental, but give specific and actionable advice. I discovered this podcast at about 5 months into my wedding planning. Even though I have the major vendors booked, etc, I still find this podcast so informative and I find myself taking notes during some of the “learning” episodes. Thank you!

I just love these ladies!

This podcast has been so instrumental in helping me with planning my wedding for this June (6/20/20)! It’s my second marriage but my partner’s first. He wanted to go big and my first wedding was small, so I figured why not! I love a challenge but boy I didn’t know what I was getting into! Thank God for this podcast and for Christy and Michelle! I’ve been listening for months and have learned so much. Each episode gives me a little more confidence to take on this huge and exciting endeavor. As well as helped me think about so many things I never would have thought of like what all goes into a ceremony, navigating a timeline and the future in-laws, and the importance of uplights! I also have to mention that I love the banter between these two in the beginning of each episode. It’s like listening to a couple of friends in the morning while I’m getting ready for work. This podcast has great guests, is inclusive, progressive, and just rocks my world! If you haven’t started listening, do it now!
