Show Notes

Nope. Not the fun episode. But if you listen, absorb and take our tips - you'll find that you're going to have a FAR less stressful engagement and planning season.  The cool thing is that Leah just released her new book, "The Wedding Rollercoaster" and its a great companion to this episode. I posted a link below. The real deal is, that by taking the opportunity in the beginning to talk openly with your "team" (anyone who holds a stake in your wedding), you will avoid some of the stresses brought on surrounding wedding spending. The biggest factors when making the contribution decision:

  • Who has control
  • Guilt (It's real and we recognize this)
  • Final decision makers
  • Does having the wedding of your dreams weigh more than the potential stress of contributors 

In this episode we'll break down the benefits, pros and cons of paying for the wedding yourself or having contributors.  Oh, and in this episode there's a shout out to Kimberly of Hitched Events and her episode about having a short or long engagement. Click here to listen to this related episode.
