124: Life can throw you a curve ball pretty quickly. We have been fielding questions and frantic phone calls from our upcoming wedding couples since last week, so we wanted to put out some tips for dealing with wedding planning during this Coronavirus outbreak. We dig in to who you should call first, and what you should be asking. The best advice is the same in every situation - communication is key! Above all, remember that we are all in this together, so be safe and kind to each other. Make good and healthy choices, and wash your hands!聽 #coronavirus #covid-19 #coronawedding聽 --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/your-i-do-crew/support
123: So many times, we see couples that walk into vendor meetings under prepared - just because they don't know what to ask! Going into wedding planning without knowing which questions to ask your vendors can create stress and frustration with the whole process, which can bleed back into your relationship, if you're not careful! We put together a list of the most common questions that you can - and SHOULD - ask every wedding vendor that you sit down with. These are applicable, no matter what the business or service type, so you could print them out and laminate them if you wanted to! Getting the answers to these will show the vendors that you know what you're doing, and will help you make sure that the vendor you're hiring is fully on the up & up!聽 The questions are: Will my deposit/retainer count towards my final bill? What happens if you are sick or have an emergency on my wedding day? When is the final payment due, and can we make payments? Is there a credit card fee? Are we able to customize the packages at all? What makes you my best option? What does your liability coverage look like? How fast is your response time? How many weddings will you take on my day? On my weekend? What didn't we know enough to ask? #weddingplanning #planningseason #weddingquestions #weddingvendors #engagedandconfused --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/your-i-do-crew/support
0121: Happy (almost) National Wedding Planning Day! Sunday, March 1 is National Wedding Planning Day, and officially marks the end of proposal season, and the beginning of wedding planning season. And what better way to kick off this season, than with an interview with an expert on the topic of wedding planning! We interviewed Lauren Kay, the Executive Editor of The Knot, on the topic of "What To Do When." We talk about what to do first in the wedding planning process, and which conversations to start with, to make sure that your wedding is everything you want it to be! As Executive Editor of The Knot, Lauren Kay scours the globe for of-the-minute wedding trends and design secrets. She loves to share her wedding expertise with engaged couples and industry pros alike and has appeared on the Today Show, Good Morning America and local news segments across the country. Lauren accepted her first wedding role at age six. After a winning performance as flower girl, she went on to star in many more weddings (including her own in 2013). She has a strong affinity for good etiquette and red lipstick and thinks a good pair of heels can transform any day. Lauren lives in New York City with her husband Adam and children George and Eleanor. http://www.theknot.com https://www.instagram.com/theknot/聽 #weddingplanning #theknot #nationalweddingplanningday聽 --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/your-i-do-crew/support

119 - In over 200 weddings, Atonn has found that a lot of couples don't really have any idea of what readings to use in their ceremony, or they just aren't familiar with the different types of readings that are out there. Above all else, he always stresses that a couple can use LITERALLY anything they want! Obviously, some church weddings will probably include a scriptural reading, but wherever you're getting married, you can have whomever you want read whatever else you choose! So we are starting a new monthly segment where Atonn shares some of his favorite wedding readings - Many of them are off the beaten path, so to speak, so they are great choices for couples who are looking to have a little fun! #offbeatbride #offbeatwedding #weddingreadings聽 --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/your-i-do-crew/support

114: In our third and final episode with Lewis King, Executive Director of American Marriage Ministries, we talk about what to do if you officiate a wedding, and get the itch to keep officiating! If you really like the feeling and process, how do you take it to the next level? Do you keep it to just friends and family? Or do you open up a full-fledged business (like Atonn did)? Here are things that need to be considered when you decide that weddings are going to be part of your future. Thank you again to American Marriage Ministries for letting us borrow Lewis!

113: Personal officiating is on the rise, and "Will you marry us?" is a question that more and more friends and family members are getting asked these days! We return to our conversation with Lewis King, Executive Director of American Marriage Ministries, as we talk about the first things that need to be considered when you've been asked to perform a wedding, or if you simply decided it might be fun to get ordained and marry some folks! Either way, we go through a lot of things that a first-time officiant needs to know, and things that they need to consider before jumping in with both feet and agreeing to perform a wedding!

112: This is part one of an AMAZING series! American Marriage Ministries (AMM) provides free ordination, advocacy, and training for ministers to ensure that all people have the right to get married and to perform marriages. 聽We met the AMM leadership at Wedding MBA, and we reached out to them for input on a topic we were working on. Well, not only did they offer to help us, but the Executive Director, Lewis King, actually flew out from Seattle, WA to meet with us and be interviewed in person! The recording session with him was amazing, and we covered a variety of topics ranging from "What is online ordination and how does it work" to "I was just asked to officiate a wedding - what now?" and so much more. We broke the session into 3 episodes, which will be published in a series. This first episode is all about the basics of online ordination, how it works, the (sometimes challenged) legality of it, and why it's so important. We go in-depth into a recent matter where the TN state legislature recently passed a law prohibiting online-ordained ministers from performing weddings, and how the AMM responded - both by challenging the statute in court, and also by GOING TO TENNESSEE AND ORDAINING MINISTERS IN PERSON! They made sure that couples were able to get married in the way they wanted, by the person they wanted. WE LOVE IT! http://www.theamm.org https://www.facebook.com/AmericanMarriageMinistries/ https://www.instagram.com/americanmarriageministries/ #amm #getordained #ordained #onlineordained #americanmarriageministries #AMMminister #officiant #weddingofficiant --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/your-i-do-crew/support

Kimberly Allen is here to remind couples to keep their "why" at the center of the whole wedding planning process.

With a background in technical theatre design, she launched her career in the entertainment industry as a jack-of-all-trades with the Big Apple Circus, Ringling Bros., and Barnum and Bailey.

In the late 90s, she left the road to pursue special event services and never looked back. By 2002, she cofounded TurnKey Productions which then evolved into Something Fabulous just two years later.

Her electric personality and high levels of energy are contagious, whether she鈥檚 taking the stage at an industry event or hitting the dance floor (which she frequents weekly). She is passionate about creating a sense of community and opening up conversations, which has served her well for connecting with peers in an industry that is always evolving. Kimberly鈥檚 commitment to clients, guests and the industry has led to a number of recognitions for Something Fabulous.聽 She and her team have been honored with聽NACE awards for design and planning services each year.

106: LIVE FROM VEGAS, BABY! Since our planned guest was sick, and Lindsay was jetlagged, Atonn decided to talk about FAMILY weddings - meaning a wedding where the couple already has kids - we frequently talk about blended families as "Yours, Mine, and Ours" since it could be kids that were had together, or kids from previous relationships, or both... but whatever the situation, it creates an amazing opportunity to include the children in the wedding ceremony. What a wonderful way to symbolize the full joining together of the new family, into one cohesive unit! 聽Now. before you make any plans, MAKE SURE THAT THEY WANT TO BE INVOLVED! You don't want to create extra anxiety or difficulty for a child who feels alienated, who maybe isn't comfortable with the marriage, or public speaking. But if you respect their boundaries, and they choose to participate in a meaningful way, it can be one of the most amazing and rewarding experiences of your life! 聽 #blendedfamily #yoursmineours #bonusparent #bonuskids #stepparent #stepkid --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/your-i-do-crew/support

How do you think that would impact your wedding day? That's what happened in August of 2014 in Toledo, OH!
