"Your presence in the wedding industry is a breath of fresh air!"

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

“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 advice 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 was so stressed, feeling bitter towards my future in-laws, and starting to really hate the wedding industry. A girlfriend from work mentioned I should look up the Wedding Planning Podcast - I immediately fell in love with Kara, and joined her online planning package, The Vault. HER GENEROSITY OF TIME & SPIRIT IS MIND-BLOWING. We had 3 calls together that completely ignited my excitement about the incredible celebration that I could finally see unfolding. Thank you, Kara. I don't know what I would have done without your clear-headed, calming support.”

Haley S.

“Our wedding plans were A COMPLETE DISASTER before membership to The VAULT. I had a faint vision, but no clue how to get there. This easy framework helped us to prioritize what truly matters, and to tune the rest out. The ability to send in questions was KEY. Kara, we would have been lost in frustration and overwhelm without you!”

Beth & Matthew

“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

“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.

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

Elle B.

It's OK to ditch the "OVERWHELMED ENGAGED COUPLES" corner. Go ahead and say GOODBYE to ...

  • The $72 BILLION DOLLAR wedding industry's priorities, pushed by social media and corporate wedding websites via all those "free" checklists + planning tools.

  • UNNECESSARY vendors, products & services with inflated price tags, confusing packages, sky-high deposits, and intimidating contracts.

  • OLD-FASHIONED wedding traditions that are embarrassing, costly, and aren't meaningful to you.

  • CRAZY EXCESS + EXPENSE that's glamorized everywhere on social media. No more FOMO or fear of judgement for what you do, or what you don't do!

  • OUTDATED "ETIQUETTE RULES" that make no sense and wind up costing you time, money & stress.
