    In this episode, we are talking to a Financial Coach and taking a broader look at planning, both wedding and future. If you have listened to the podcast for a while, you know we talk about money, A LOT. We do NOT think it’s a wise idea, or a worthwhile venture, to go into massive debt for your wedding. We try to remind you all to stay connected to your partner throughout the planning process and to strengthen your communication skills.
