Nicole Pellegrino

Nicole Pellegrino is Director of TikTok Content & Strategy at Betches and host of the Betches Brides podcast. She’ll never stop talking about her wedding, yet loves making jokes about how truly ridiculous weddings are.

Where to Start

WTF is a Bridesmaids Survey Ft. Lauren Ladouceur

This week, Nicole sits down with bride-to-be and organization phenom Lauren Ladoucer. They dish on how to be the best kind of type-A bride: prioritizing communication. They cover her tik tok-famous bridesmaid survey, meant to break down their role throughout the planning process, during the bachelorette, and on the day-of. She also explains her “vendor presentation,” to streamline the couple’s vision on flowers, dining, and more. Lastly, they tune into the Betches Brides Voicemail, and advise an upcoming bride on a hair and makeup mishap that could jeopardize the entire day.

Is Your Wedding About You Or The Guests? Ft. Melissa Andre

This week Nicole is back with wedding and event planner Melissa Andre, one of our most listened to guests in Betches Brides history. In this episode Nicole and Melissa chat about how social media, especially TikTok, has changed the way people view the wedding planning industry. Did you know people have A LOT of opinions on the internet? Melissa then explains that, while your wedding day should be about you, keeping that Host/Guest relationship is what truly creates a welcoming atmosphere. They finish off with a game of Unpopular Opinions, leaning on Melissa’s 15 years of experience to cover topics like: How important are the getting ready photos? Are grand exits overrated? And the ongoing argument of Band vs. DJ.

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!
