Episode 88: My Fiancé is Over It

How do you deal with a super stressed-out partner who says they can't wait for the wedding planning to be over?

There are a number of reasons this could happen. It could be because your partner wants to get back into ordinary life where you're not talking about vendors, guest lists, spreadsheets, and all those things that really clutter up your free time. 

Your fiancee could also be feeling this way because there is a disconnection between the two of you during your wedding planning process.

In this episode, we discuss understanding why your fiancee could be feeling this way about wedding planning, instead of feeling insulted and reactive toward your fiancé. 


What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • How to understand why your fiancé is over the wedding planning process

  • Trusting that there's a reason that your partner's over it

  • Surrendering to what happens and being available and open to what happens

  • Solving your own problems and making your relationships deeper

Episode 84: How to Handle the Goodness

How do you process and take in all those gifts and good wishes and people showing up for you, people supporting you, and people celebrating you on your wedding day?

This is a question I got from one of my one-to-one bridal coaching calls. She thought everyone who came to her wedding was doing so much for her, and it was amazing and she appreciated it, but it also felt uncomfortable and it just felt like too much.

In this episode, we discuss feeling a little bit overwhelmed by all of this goodness coming at you, gratitude, and ways to give thanks to the people or gift you on your wedding day.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • How to process people celebrating you on your wedding day
  • Understanding that it's completely normal to feel a little bit overwhelmed by all of this goodness coming at you on your wedding day
  • Taking the time to really show your gratitude towards your guest on your wedding day
  • Reminding yourself that you deserve this moment as the bride

Episode 80: Grief & Weddings

How do you get through your wedding after you have lost a loved one?

This is something a lot of women deal with on their wedding day.

Today I’m talking with Meredith Lynch about going through her wedding after she lost her mother. She left the emotional part out and did what she felt was right for her on her wedding day.

Meredith is a writer and pop culture analyst who lives in Los Angeles.

In this episode, we discuss hiring a wedding planner instead of having bridesmaids, and the experience of planning and having a wedding after a parent passed away.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • How to plan your wedding after a parent passes away
  • Figuring out how to navigate big wedding plan decisions without your mother by your side
  • Staying true to what matters to you on your wedding day
  • Hiring a wedding planner to not only help with the execution but to do some of the things that a maid of honor would do
