Episode 88: Chuppahs & Hoopas (with Nancy)


Brooke’s neighbor Nancy stops by to tell the gals all about her wedding. Details include: a long distance romance that caused her to upgrade her cell phone’s data plan, finding a dress that doesn’t make her feel like a cupcake, and an interesting pronunciation of the word “chuppah.”

We also dive into listeners’ submitted confessionals about holding RSVP-related grudges, the rules for late gifting wedding presents, and how to include step-parents into a ceremony without it feeling weird or forced.

If you like unlimited texting plans or step-dad awkwardness, this episode is for you!
