Hey there babes! Lovely to have ya back for another month of filth + nonsense. This month we discuss the 'creative' methods that some 2020 couples have come up with to cut their wedding guest list, and we highlight yet ANOTHER horror show parent using the speeches to publicly shit talk their own offspring (who ARE these people?!). Katie also will NOT SHUT UP about her loose sphincter (totally off topic, as per) so you have all that to enjoy - just maybe don't listen when you're eating your lunch! 🤢 And the delightful Kelly and Gemma from Songbird Sessions join us for BIN OFF! So stick around for that!Follow us:@thebigdaybabes@katiethecelebrant@jumpthebroomweddings@songbirdsessions

We share your IRL speech dramz on the podcast this week.We've also got the brilliant Jade from Hushabye Films on for a chat about what she'd like to cast in the big day bin.

GUARANTEED!)Enjoy!xCome follow us@thebigdaybabes@katiethecelebrant@jumpthebroomweddings

If you’ve been watching our Instagram stories you’ll know that making episode 5 has been a true LABOUR OF LOVE. We blamed Mercury Retrograde the first time our tech failed on us... the THIRD time we realised we might just be incompetent 😂(ironic really because, according to podcast mythology, episode five is the one where you CRACK IT - not us! We just imploded!). Aaaanyway we got there in the end and hey! It’s another cracker! We chat about wedding guest plus ones, choreographed dance routines and CORONAVIRUS (we couldn’t not, really. This episode was recorded remotely so we like to think we’re doing our bit to stop the spread 🛑🤧) We also have an AMAZING GUEST for our Bin Off - the glorious Melissa Woods founded of @the_un_wedding joins us to reveal what wedding item she wants to cast into oblivion (it’s a good’un!). If you're enjoying the podcast please leave us a review!
