Our Reviews

A MUST listen for anxious brides to be!

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.

For the wedding obsessed

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.

Love love love betches brides!

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!
