Hello and welcome to the show -the the weekly wedding planning podcast where you are set up for planning success, and aren't overwhelmed by planning stress. Here, you'll find the right tools and information so you can make the most informed decisions about your wedding day without second guessing if you did something right or wrong, saving you time, money and aggravation.

This is show number 45 and today we're discussing ways in which media and diet culture strip away your confidence and remove you from your authentic self. My guest shares ways you can confidently slay the day while staying true to yourself.

We discuss...

  • How little steps lead to big gains in confidence
  • The role fitness plays in increasing your confidence
  • How the lack of diversity in the wedding industry is stripping you of your confidence
  • How to confidently step into their role as a bride or groom even if they don't see themselves represented fully in mainstream media
  • so much more...
