I found Aleisha and the Bridechilla family right after taking my parents to visit our wedding venue. They were so negative about everything and I felt so overwhelmed and let down. I binged all the family/friend episodes of the podcast before moving into other topics and eventually joining the FB group. I’m so grateful I stumbled on The Bridechilla Podcast so early into wedding planning! Aleisha’s f**k mean people, do you (& your partner) attitude has gotten me through some tough times this year. I feel the most validated by her (and the online community!), and feel informed in my decision making when dealing with topics I know nothing about (catering, photography, contracts...) I’ve recommended this podcast to every single bride I’ve met who’s having a hard time. The stress is real! Get help! (& listen to Bridechilla 🤩)

Bridechilla Best of: 172- The Guest List & RSVPs

Podcast cover
Read more

Today I revisit some moments from an earlier episode, with a new twist…the guest list and RSVPs. When you’re planning a wedding, creating a guest list, who to send those magic wedding invitations to, should be discussed early and discussed often. Like my very dear, close personal friend Heidi Klum says 'You are either in, or you're out'. Today obligation wedding guests (and how to ditch them). I give easy, clear cut solutions to prevent family wars, relationship breakdowns and how to adhere to basic manners and etiquette without inviting the whole neighborhood to your wedding day. As with your budget, with the guest list and numbers you’re going to need to set clear goals and guidelines. What is your absolute maximum number of guests? Do you first work out your guest list and then your wedding budget or do you find a venue, work out the pricing and then the guest list? Should you invite friends from work? Your cousin has a new girlfriend, does she have to come? Parents paying? How much say do they get? Take a breath. Relax and listen to this episode to regain control of the list and invite who YOU want to invite. I enjoyed listening to some of my earlier advice and updating a few points along the way and know you will too!Be on your way to wedding Planning Zen with the Bridechilla Guides!

I have been a little under the weather this week and have lost my voice so instead of heating croaky McCroke on the show, I present to you this Best of Bridechilla episode! I’ve been working on my new book… which is all being a bridechilla (of course) and I started to create a list of wedding planning truths, things that will just happen when you are wedding planning and basically the sooner we accept them the sooner we can get over them and move on. As soon as I finish the list I realized this would be a great podcast topic. In this episode, I cover everything from… the gargantuan amount of wedding dresses on offer that all seem to look the same, why I believe wedding magazines are on the way out, how to avoid getting sucked into creating an over the top themed, extravaganza wedding and your inevitable move into becoming a bridechilla politician, one of the many hats that you will wear over your wedding planning time.

Podcast cover

In this Episode of Bridechilla Katrina from thefeministbride.com and I talk about the reasons women cite for taking their spouse’s surname: some like the tradition of it, and others find it romantic. In some cases, it’s more important to their husbands, and some feel it will be more convenient once they have children. Some women even argue, counterintuitively, that taking their husband’s name is a feminist choice. I know that this episode will empower you to make the choice that is right for you.

286- The F*ck it Bucket

Podcast cover

The f*ck it bucket is where you put all of the jobs and things and things to buy you thought you would get around to doing before your wedding but have run out of time or care. It's a cathartic exercise will help you just let go and move on and it's very funny. It's not to say that these tasks and items aren't fun and great if you have them it's more about allowing yourself to say 'it doesn't really matter and no one will notice'.

However, during this episode, you will hear several great and resourceful ideas for reducing your environmental impact without sacrificing your wedding dreams.
