Anyone who has researched how to plan a wedding will find there is a vast difference in information found online between what is considered a “small wedding” or an “all-inclusive package.” Today on IDR, we are challenging what the wedding industry advertises and what they are actually offering and the general lack of variety in wedding vendors & services. Fair warning, ranting (and “f” bombs) ahead.
What exactly is required to get married? A fancy dress? An expensive hall? A heavily attended 12 hour affair?

So you are planning to get married and you two are ready to begin a bright adventure of your very own. There’s only one hitch, your parents!

Join us as we explore the role our parents play in the big day and how to navigate their crazy on an already crazy day.
