In today’s episode, Rachel Russo, Dating, Relationship & Image Coach and Marriage Educator, interviews three specialists who work with brides - a nutritionist, a hairstylist, and a makeup artist. They share their insight to help women deal with their need to look perfect on their wedding day. The advice provided is not just for brides-to-be, but also for their fiancés, many of whom just don't understand a partner’s strong need for dieting, exercising, grooming, or the endless search for "the" dress. Both sexes are aware of shows like Say Yes To The Dress, Shedding For The Wedding, and Bridezillas that reinforce the idea of the importance of the wedding day, but do they recognize the pressure around maintaining appearances and how it can put serious strain on a relationship? It does NOT have to be this way! Rachel and her special guests provide empathy and hope for both parties by informing listeners that they aren’t alone with their image-related concerns. You will learn that there are smart solutions to creating and maintaining your image in a healthy way so it does not affect your relationship. And, sometimes it’s as simple as planning ahead and managing expectations. The guests in this Lovecast show are in order of appearance: Sarah Jenks, nutrition and life coach, helping women prepare emotionally and physically for their weddings. She is the founder of the Breathtaking Bride. Allison Friedman, Creative Director & Stylist at Schwartz Salon in Red Bank, NJ and the founder of Allison Paige Registry. She travels everywhere as a hair stylist and makeup artist and has an expertise in doing bridal hair. Julia Dalton, makeup artist and owner of NYC-based Brush Beauty.

Wedding Podcast Network welcomes Rachel Russo, Dating, Relationship & Image Coach and Marriage Educator, as the new host of Lovecast. Rachel has counseled hundreds of men and women, singles and couples, who value love and marriage as much as she does and are ready to transform their lives to find it and keep it. Her mission is to parlay beauty and love into the lives of people everywhere by redesigning the ways we date and marry. Rachel is a contributing editor and advice specialist for Your Tango, Stage of Life, Commitment.US.com and is Miss New York on 3six5dates, a reality dating blog. In today's episode Rachel interviews Todd Outcalt, author of Before You Say I Do, Important Questions for Couples to Ask Before Marriage. This insightful book has over 300 practical questions prospective spouses should ask each other about life-plans, education, careers, values and beliefs, sex, children, past relationships, money, and running a household. These questions will help a couple start talking about issues that are most important to deepen their relationship for a lifetime of marriage. Todd, a United Methodist pastor, has counseled hundreds of couples before marriage and officiated at nearly an equal number of weddings. He has conducted workshops on marriage and parenting, and has led seminars on the premarital relationship. He says in his book "it is much more difficult to have a marriage than a wedding. Anyone can organize a wedding, but not everyone can have a long and happy marriage. A wedding takes planning. Marriage requires hard work." Time for some focused listening. What are the most important topics a couple should discuss before marriage? How can couples improve their communication skills? What topics do couples avoid talking about? How can you initiate uncomfortable conversations? Can sharing too much backfire? What are some common issues engaged couples need to work on before they tie the knot? How can friends and family share their true thoughts and feelings during your engagement? What is a major threat to creating and maintaining a great marriage in modern society and what can couples do about it? What are the best marriages made of? Todd and Rachel address these provocative questions so every bride and groom can learn more about themselves, each other and marriage in order to strengthen the foundation of their relationship.
