On this episode we discuss what you should do if one of your guests tells you they're going to be wearing white to your wedding. We talk about how you can respond to that guest politely, and impolitely. We also talk about whether or not it's okay to make a guest or family member leave the wedding if they show up in white. Also of note in this discussion, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Family Matters/Steve Urkel, Boy Meets World, and Wine Country. Help us grow the community of love buddies: Join the Facebook Group!

Ep. #018 - De-stressing by Beer Tasting
This week on Wedded we're talking about de-stressing. As you head out toward your wedding, or just out toward the rest of your life in general, it's important to take time to relax and rejuvenate your spirit. Steve does this by trying new beers with Jenn. So, in this episode, he walks you through the steps you take when tasting beers. If you're interested in finding the best glassware for your favorite style of beer, check this guide out on Kegworks. I know Steve said you could just google it in the episode, but who wants to waste time googling? We'd love to know if you're listening on Podcoin. Drop us a line if you are.

Ep. #017 - The 10 Biggest Wedding Regrets
What are the top 10 biggest regrets you'll have after your wedding? We can't see into your personal future so we don't really know... But what we can do is dissect an article that claims to know what people who are married regret the most about their wedding. Join us on this fun ride into crazy town as we tear apart this article and then dish on some of our biggest regrets. If you want to follow along with the article while we talk about it, then you can find it on Wedding Forward. We also briefly talked about an article that purports to be able to tell you the seven words that'll make you happy in marriage. That article doesn't deliver on the concept of 7 words. Instead it lists 7 sentences that people say to each other. You can find that on Bustle. Help us grow the community of love buddies: Join the Facebook Group!

Ep. #016 - The Truth About Sex
In this episode, Jenn and I talk a lot about sex. Coming straight off of a few weeks of talking together on other podcasts, where we made a lot of jokes about sex, we thought it would be a good idea to have a conversation about our first time having sex. Specifically, about the baggage we both brought into the relationship as a result of waiting till marriage to have sex and about how sex isn't always great for both people involved. We also talk a lot about Steve's sleep paralysis. It's not fun. It's scary and spooky and terrible. We mentioned an episode of the Secret Life of Weddings Podcast that we were recently on in this episode. If you want to hear that episode, it's Episode 92 on their podcast feed. We shared some really fun stories there that you'll love to hear.

Ep. #013 - Picking Your Wedding Party
In this episode we dive deep into the madness that is picking your wedding party. Some people might tell you that there are a lot of rules to follow when picking the bridal party. We are not those people. There's only one rule as far as we're concerned, that is that there are no rules. So technically, zero rules.

Ep. #012 - Do I Have to Go to My Stepson's Wedding?
We're answering our first ever listener question. If you don't get along with your stepson and he only ever hits you up when he wants money, do you have to go to his out of state wedding? He's been with his fiance for several years and they have kids, some together, some from past relationships... So, do you have to go? Also, he never sent you a formal invite, just verbally asked if you'd want to go... We're walking through this question step by step to find out how committed this stepmom is to being the cool grandma. Sweeties for all.

Ep. #010 - Ring Shaming
If your ring doesn’t live up to expectations, what should you do? Should you ever mention the size of someone’s diamond in their ring? What is okay to say to other engaged people?
