The Archaic Bridegroom
Hello! On this week's episode, we talk through wedding websites, older wedding traditions, and Abby's childhood obsession with Pirates of the Caribbean. Katie's lovely grandmother gifted her a book called "Answers to Questions Often Asked About a Wedding" from the 1940's. And boy, did it answer our questions! Bonus info- We discovered the bridal shop who gifted this book is now a Macy's in Chicago (which refuses to answer our calls). As always, we hope you enjoy!
