Wedding planner books, to-do lists and spreadsheets will help you to keep on top of the #wedmin but sometimes all a bride-to-be needs is some friendly, light-hearted advice – introducing the wedding podcast. 

Last year, Ofcom found that in the UK almost six million people tune into podcasts every week and weddings have quickly become a hot topic. Experts and planners have taken to the microphone to share their tips and advice with fellow brides-to-be. Here are just a few of our favourites.

Bridechilla 

Probably the first wedding podcast that springs to mind, Bridechilla is hosted by comedian and author Aleisha McCormack. The host is your “virtual bridesmaid” – in the 365 episodes produced to date, she’s covered everything from using Pinterest to design your wedding  to incorporating cultures and traditions. Aleisha is often joined by guest hosts who shed light on their areas of expertise. If you don’t know where to begin, click here to check out the six most popular episodes as a starting point.

Put a ring on it

Photographer Daniel Moyer and wedding planner Danielle Pasternak are based near Philadelphia and have teamed up to produce Put a Ring On It: The Wedding Planning Podcast. There are How-tos, Q&A episodes and Dear Dan quick-fire sessions where the pair answer listeners’ questions in less than five minutes.

The Icing on the Cake

Host Zoë Binning is a Welsh wedding planner based near Cardiff. She shares her dos and don’ts over the course of the podcast's two series – and Zoë tells us that series three will be available to download very soon. Zoë says: “There are lots of US wedding podcasts out there but very few from the UK and, as we know, trends and customs vary dramatically here. Couples often don’t know where to start with the planning process so I wanted to give them step-by-step help, advice and ideas. I also interviewed wedding experts, fashion and wedding bloggers and planners as well as analysing key trends along the way.”

The Icing on the Cake is produced by Bengo Media.

Hitched 

This Mamamia podcast is a great starting point for brides-to-be. With just 12 episodes, it is designed as a 10-week crash course in wedding planning, taking you through each part of the journey from choosing your bridal party to devising the guest list. Aleisha McCormack also hosts this series and each episode is half an hour long or less, making it a convenient listen for brides on the go who just need a few quick pointers. 

The Outside Wedding Guide: Ask an Expert

Husband and wife duo Emily and Alan Braithwaite run The Outside Bride, a UK wedding blog for couples planning to marry outdoors. After their own outdoor wedding in 2012, the couple decided to create a digital space for brides- and grooms-to-be following in their footsteps. With a blog, podcast and Youtube channel, there’s not much this pair won’t turn their hand to. Tune in to their Youtube channel every Wednesday at 8pm to watch their Ask an Expert sessions. 

Rock My Wedding

Founder of Rock My Wedding Charlotte O’Shea co-hosts this show with designer and content creator Becky Sappor. In series one the pair tackled readings, budgets and seating plans among other topics and series two has started with beauty basics and wedding photography. Taking on key subjects in every episode, the pair have no-end of helpful advice. Listen on Apple, Spotify, Google or Anchor FM.
