Hosts, Robert & Holli, discuss solving family problems while planning a wedding and still have the wedding that you want.  Through it all, don't forget why you and your spouse are marrying.  Your love for each other and desire to make a life long commitment is the most important factor in the wedding plan.

We play a new piece of podsafe music called Tonight by Manons Dream.  Great first dance as husband and wife. 

Our featured guest on the show is Lori Harris, Certified Astrologer.  Lori takes us through the Zodiac and discusses traits of each sign, especially with regard to love and relationships.  She shares with us how some cultures really depend upon the reading of astrological charts prior to marriage and in turn there is a much lower divorce rate.  Lori's services include chart analysis, tarot and numerology.   She is available for individual and group readings. This would be great fun to have at your bridal shower or wedding.

Meet the Masters with destination wedding expert Rebecca Grinnals

One of the hottest trends is destination weddings.  We have one of the most knowledgable experts in the business Rebecca Grinnals. Robert Allen had the opportunity recently to interview Rebecca in Orlando, Florida.

Rebecca shares with us how she was influenced as a young girl by the world of weddings.  Rebecca takes us through all of the important aspects of planning the perfect destination wedding and enlightens us with some interesting statistics.  Find out how to get the most out of using the internet to plan the details.  She discusses how the planning process differs for a wedding that takes place away from home.

We answer many of the important questions:

What are my choices for a destination wedding?  How do I maximize my budget?  How many site visits do I need?  Should I use a travel agent?  How much time do I need to plan?  How do I find the right wedding consultant?  Does my destination have to take place at a big resort?  Is renting a villa an option?  Do I need to entertain my guests?  Who is responsible for paying?  Does the honeymoon have to be at the same place as the wedding?

Rebecca Grinnals is widely regarded as one of the foremost experts on the business of Destination Weddings and Honeymoons. She is the Founder and President of wedding and honeymoon industry consulting firm, Engaging Concepts, Inc. based in Celebration, FL and the Chairman of the Caribbean Wedding Association. Rebecca is a sought after industry consultant and trend expert. She has been a featured guest on CBS The Early Show, CNN, Entertainment Tonight, "Weddings of a LIFETIME," CNBC and on Meet the Masters on The Wedding Podcast Network.

Prior to creating Engaging Concepts and the Caribbean Wedding Association, Rebecca co-founded Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons for The Walt Disney Company, and spent ten years developing the concept into an unprecedented success.

Recently Rebecca worked with renowned wedding planner, Marcy Blum on Billy Joel's wedding at his Long Island estate and also with wedding design guru Preston Bailey on Donald Trump's wedding at Mar-a-lago.
