When a bride accepts a proposal, they’re not expecting to say yes to distress. But wedding planning can be the most stressful time in any relationship — families collide, personalities clash, and wallets empty even before your mother-in-law adds her entire bridge club to the invite list. Good thing Betches’ bride guide is in the house. Each week, Fallon Carter — one of the nation’s top wedding planners — guides a real Betches Bride in need of advice, empathy, and laughter through their nuptial nerves, and invites expert friends on the podcast to dig deeper into our brides’ biggest problem areas.View Promo Codes

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!
