Where to Start
The Pros and Cons of Reading Your Own Ceremony Vows
Jordana and Nicole kick off the episode with some recent updates. Nicole is preparing for her African honeymoon and Jordana shares some thoughts on weddings as a whole as hers is just around the corner. Then they get into some listener emails, including one about a listener who wants to read her own vows at the ceremony, but her fiancé wants to avoid it. Is there a compromise that will make both of them happy? Then it’s time for Unpopular Opinions this time brought to you by High Noon Hard Seltzer, this time on pictures under the veil, wedding veils themselves, and separate rooms the night before the wedding.

They then get into a few emails from our listeners, which deal with topics like inviting your coworkers to the wedding, a day-of wedding dresser, and wearing a second look. They round it all out with a round of Unpopular Opinions brought to you by High Noon Hard seltzer about multiple MOH’s, line dances and cheesy songs, and Jack and Jill bach parties.

Nicole and Jordana are doing the Lord’s work answering tough questions with logic, wit, and love. So grateful in such uncertain times, especially for brides to be, to have these down to earth ladies to listen to. They educate, motivate, entertain, and over all reduce the impending doom feeling that comes with being a corona bride.
Even though I’m not engaged, I still love listening to this podcast because of how great Jordana and Nicole are. I love both of their honesty, and I think Jordana gives amazing advice— and not just on wedding dos and don’ts but relationships as well.
I love listening every week, just to hear about what other brides-to-be are going through, and get advice. This podcast keeps me laughing through planning a wedding, and it’s so fun to listen to!
