Past couples share exactly how The VAULT will transform your wedding planning journey from OVERWHELM to EASE:

“Thank you so much, you made the wedding planning so much easier and not so overwhelming, and also helped me not completely get out of control with my budget. I loved how accessible the short podcasts were, and in the end, it saved me TONS of money!”

Alyx

“I was so excited to hear my question when I listened to this week’s show - thanks so much for featuring it, and THANK YOU for being such a huge part in planning our wedding. I remember how overwhelmed it felt at first and how it didn’t feel fun at all. Total 180 now, I'm finally having fun planning. I’m SO HAPPY I stumbled upon Wedding Planning Podcast!”

Lindsay

“Your presence in the wedding industry is a breath of fresh air! ... I want to extend my thanks for your wealth of practical advice & suggestions for circumventing typical wedding industry standards. I've never desired to have a cookie-cutter wedding, and your podcast has given me so much creative insight, AND has made me feel validated in wanting to have a unique + classy wedding that doesn't entirely follow the status-quo.”

Brittany N.

“I'm doing all my wedding planning myself and I wouldn't have been able to do it without the archive of shows and the extensive content on the Vault. I recommend it to every friend as they get engaged.”

Holly S.

“I was looking for an inclusive wedding planning podcast with a host who supports my wedding as much as any other. And one who is brilliant in all things weddings!! That is my very long thank you, Kara. You make a difference in my life.”

Chris O.

“Thank you so much for these special “support” episodes you are doing during this (COVID-19) pandemic. In such a uncertain situation, knowing we’re all here to support one another is a real comfort. So a BIG THANK YOU!”

Kristina

“Having access to The VAULT is an amazing resource and covers just about everything - I highly recommend it to others!”

Elle B.

Hiring a FULL-SERVICE WEDDING PLANNER to walk you through the lengthy & confusing process of creating your dream wedding celebration carries a price tag in the THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

  • In the past, I've personally charged $100+ / hour for wedding planning services & event consulting.

  • If we do the math using that hourly rate, the precious contents of THE VAULT are worth over $7000!

  • So to share this PRICELESS PLANNING RESOURCE with you for $19.99 / month?

  • AND include a TOTALLY FREE, zero obligation 3-day free trial?!

  • TOTAL SCORE!!!

FAQ's

  • I signed up for the free 3-day trial but don't see the bonus shows or where to ask my wedding questions?

    The free 3-day trial is designed to give you a "sneak peek" at the look & feel of The VAULT. Premium benefits - such as the bonus episodes, question submission, mini-workshops, exclusive videos & checklists - are only available to paid subscribers, after the 3-day free trial period expires.

  • What if I have a question about my wedding that's not addressed in the digital materials?

    Membership includes personalized support and a FRONT OF THE LINE PASS to Wedding Q&A shows. Send in your specific questions anytime 24/7, and I'll answer them in detail {and anonymously!} on an upcoming show.

  • How long does my subscription last?

    Membership is renewed monthly, and you're FREE TO CANCEL ANYTIME.

  • What's the difference between free weekly shows and The VAULT?

    Free weekly shows of the Wedding Planning Podcast are released in no special order, contain advertisements from our valued partners, and expire after a set number of months. Shows within The VAULT membership package are carefully organized in sequential order of planning importance, are searchable, and are available to you ON-DEMAND, 100% ad-free.

  • What's covered in the BONUS SHOWS?

    I like to think of the bonus shows as virtual "meetings", where we walk through an ALL NEW WAY to design your wedding celebration. We'll start with your engagement, and go step-by-step through your entire wedding planning journey, outlining EXACTLY what to do, and when.

  • Are there any 1-on-1 calls included?

    Sadly, no. This exceptionally affordable price point allows me to help as many couples as possible, but unfortunately doesn't allow for 1-on-1 calls or meetings. As a wonderful alternative, you're welcome to submit your unique wedding questions and/or thoughts anytime for members-only weekly meetings, where I can provide personalized, detailed advice in a group setting.
