Ep. #025 - Let Them Eat Cake

2019-09-2700:38:451

This week we're talking all about cake. Why? Because Steve claims he's seeing a new trend when it comes to cutting the cake. Aside from this supposed new trend, we're all just talking about everything you want to know about your cake on the day. When to cut it. How to cut it (which is the number one thing couples ask photographers on their wedding day). When it will be delivered. Our favorite types of icing. Our least favorite types of icing. Whether or not holding the cake hostage will keep your guests at the wedding longer. Also, the proliferation of donut walls across the world and how they're cutting into cake's big day.Help us grow the community of love buddies:Join the Facebook Group!Find out more about Jenn and Steve at:weddedpod.com, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Jenn's Instagram, Steve's Instagram--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/wedded/support
This week we're joined by Lori Solomon and Megan Painter of Boldly Chic Events. We talk with Lori and Megan about planning a timeless wedding, linens, installations, florals, and so much more. We also talk a lot about ways to make your wedding have a bigger impact in this episode and were to put your money to get the most impact if your budget is limited. Lori and Megan also share stories about tornados and rain on wedding days. They also talk with us a little bit about late snacks, like sliders and Chicago style beanie weanies, as well as making Taco Bell runs late at night to feed to all the guests!We talk a lot about a recent wedding that Boldly Chic Events planned and that we captured.

This week we talked with Andi Sherman of Something Blue Stylists! We talked a lot about the importance of hiring a professional makeup artist. There are just so many things we didn't think about, like the level of professionalism, the cleanliness of their brushes and products, and their ability to tackle any problem that arises. Andi also talks to us about her favorite hair styles and the different types of brushes she uses. And, as the title suggests, she shares a horrifying story about what she did when her van with her entire makeup kit was stolen a few days before a wedding.Jenn and Steve's audio is a little rough in this one. There was a recording snafu. We thought the things Andi had to say were so good though that it would be worse not to post this episode than it would be to post it with some not so great audio.If you want to connect with Andi or Something Blue Stylists then you can find her:somethingbluestylists.com, Facebook, Instagram, and PinterestHelp us grow the community of love buddies:Join the Facebook Group!Find out more about Jenn and Steve at:weddedpod.com, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Jenn's Instagram, Steve's Instagram--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/wedded/support

We're also talking about the right way to tell a bride that you don't want to be a part of her bridal party. And we talk a little bit about how a bride should handle that information.

This week we answer an anonymous listener question. This listener friended their vendors on facebook, and then found out their florist was making fun of their wedding. We talk about whether or not you should work with vendors that complain online and how to avoid unpleasant people. It's important to remember though, that everyone gets frustrated and complains, so unfortunately you'll never find a vendor that's never complained a day in their life. You can find people that are nice and who will keep their complaints private though, and also people who just aren't known to complain.Help us grow the community of love buddies:Join the Facebook Group!Find out more about Jenn and Steve at:weddedpod.com, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Jenn's Instagram, Steve's Instagram--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/wedded/support
On this episode we discuss what you should do if one of your guests tells you they're going to be wearing white to your wedding.

What are the top 10 biggest regrets you'll have after your wedding? We can't see into your personal future so we don't really know... But what we can do is dissect an article that claims to know what people who are married regret the most about their wedding. Join us on this fun ride into crazy town as we tear apart this article and then dish on some of our biggest regrets.If you want to follow along with the article while we talk about it, then you can find it on Wedding Forward.We also briefly talked about an article that purports to be able to tell you the seven words that'll make you happy in marriage. That article doesn't deliver on the concept of 7 words. Instead it lists 7 sentences that people say to each other. You can find that on Bustle.Help us grow the community of love buddies: Join the Facebook Group!Find out more about Jenn and Steve at: weddedpod.com, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Jenn's Instagram, Steve's Instagram--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/wedded/support
In this episode, Jenn and I talk a lot about sex. Coming straight off of a few weeks of talking together on other podcasts, where we made a lot of jokes about sex, we thought it would be a good idea to have a conversation about our first time having sex. Specifically, about the baggage we both brought into the relationship as a result of waiting till marriage to have sex and about how sex isn't always great for both people involved.We also talk a lot about Steve's sleep paralysis. It's not fun. It's scary and spooky and terrible.We mentioned an episode of the Secret Life of Weddings Podcast that we were recently on in this episode. If you want to hear that episode, it's Episode 92 on their podcast feed. We shared some really fun stories there that you'll love to hear.Help us grow the community of love buddies: Join the Facebook Group! Find out more about Jenn and Steve at:weddedpod.com, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Jenn's Instagram, Steve's Instagram--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/wedded/support
