Where to Start
Make Your Wedding Invitations Personal Again Ft. Katherine Jezek Moore
This week Samantha is joined by wedding stationary designer Katherine Jezek Moore, to give us the rundown on how to design your wedding invitations, what to include in them, and how to make them your own. Samantha starts off by asking, what the most common misconceptions people have when it comes to wedding invitations? Katherine has found that most people don’t realize there are no rules when it comes to designing your invitations and she always encourages couples to get creative. She guides us through the design process giving tips on how to collect design inspiration, what information to include, and how to mail out the invitations once they are done.

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!

Think of Jordana and Dr. Naomi as your BFF and your therapist, sitting side-by-side at the brunch table trying to help you get through your problems. Because sometimes we really need advice from people with no skin in the game. And let’s face it, your friends can’t stand to hear that story one more time.
