Welcome to the Step-by-Step Wedding Prep Podcast - The weekly show where we teach you everything you need to know to plan your wedding like a pro! 

On today's episode, we have plus-size bridal expert, Shafonne Myers. She is the owner of Pretty Pear Bride, a plus-size bridal magazine; host of the Pretty Pear Life - a podcast for curvey, confident plus-size women; and a self-love and body positivity coach.

If you've ever looked in the mirror and see all your "imperfections" instead of your amazing, beautiful, self - this is the episode you need to listen to!

Shafonne and I discuss...

  • How to feel confident in your own skin and tips and strategies to help you do that
  • How your wedding dress can't mask these "imperfections" need to wear your dress, your dress doesn't wear you
  • The number one trigger that most brides don't know about that can send them into a self-hate spiral
  • How mirror work and ridding your environment of "toxic" triggers can lead to self-love
  • The comparison-itis trap so many brides fall victim to
  • So much more

I also ask Shafonne 5 Fun Questions at the end...learn about her interesting early career, the most amazing family dinners, and her ultimate goal -which she puts out in the universe on today's show.
