A must listen for the modern day bride!
I wish this podcast was around when I got married in 2009! Kara has a great voice, her stories keep you engaged and she shares priceless tips to have a stress-free + affordable wedding!
A Classy & Informative Podcast
Hi Kara, I listen to your podcast quite often. I really appreciate the class and professionalism that you exude on your show. I started a wedding planner podcast in August called “The Beach Wedding Show”. While I try and listen to many wedding podcasts, I only like a couple, yours being one of those. I believe our philosophies are similar. I don’t get political, I don’t spend 30 minutes trying to be a personality or extra funny. I don’t curse. I treat my audience like they are sitting in our office. Give them enough of me to know me, but mostly share important information and guide them. You do the same and I will continue to listen every week! Thanks again and I wish you nothing but success!!
Wish my Wife Had This Resource. Oh Well... You Do!
I met Kara at a recent podcaster's conference in Philly. She was one of the speakers at the conference sharing strategies on creating content that moves people to action. Kara is a strong personality and knows her stuff. I've been married for 15 years, so obviously her podcast wasn't in my listening radius. But, I told her two of my sisters just got married in the past 12 months and I wished I'd known about this earlier. If you know anyone getting married or know a business owner in the wedding industry, connect them to Kara! This is a huge resource to shortcut the drama of planning a wedding!
