Be prepared to smile and laugh and hear true confessions from a pair that know the wedding business like no other exclusively on Wedding Podcast Network.
In their first show Henry & Michelle discuss the ever important pivotal component that sets the tone for the whole wedding - the wedding dress. It's the first thing people see at the wedding. It creates mystery and excitement.
We've heard it a million times - My wedding has to be PERFECT! Brides everywhere have the same pressures, worries, concerns - the photos, the weather, the cake and flowers. Henry and Michelle lift the lid on an industry that has spent years creating the fantasy.
And how do ALL brides want to look? Can you guess? SLIM!!!! Henry and Michelle talk REALITY and equip you with what you can really expect. Brides will have a deeper understanding when purchasing a gown once they listen to this special podcast. You will learn to remain calm, use common sense and deal.
The bride's energy is part of her wedding gown. It's how you feel inside that will make you shine on the outside. This dynamic duo tell our listeners to enjoy the experience - the good and the bad. They say "it's all doable. Put everything in perspective".
Hear all about Michelle's wedding dress. Her last fitting was the morning of her wedding day - aagh! She discusses alterations and what you should bring to your personal fitting. Bottom line - own it, wear it, love it!

This Bridal Scene is a wonderful variety of entertaining guests, music and news in the world of weddings.
We visited the New York International Gift Fair, and looked for new products in the bridal market. We speak with Robin Kramer, Director of Sales, from Dogeared Jewels & Gifts. Dogeared's designer Marcia Maizel-Clarke recognized the need for jewelry that speaks, and created the original word jewelry and charms. The products at this company capture the magic of words, symbols, wishes and dreams. We think that their necklaces would make a great gift for bridesmaids and the flower girl.
You've got questions....Jessica has the answers. Jessica Liebeskind, make-up artist and lifestyle beauty expert, shares some great ideas on putting together a Bridal Beauty emergency kit for your guests. She tells us what it is, where to put it and most important terrific suggestions on what to put in it. Jessica to the rescue.
