A podcast series on the sociology, psychology, and story of choosing a wedding outfit.
Getting married is an event that holds a different meaning for everyone. For some it’s based on religious traditions, and for others it’s a validation of an earlier choice they made to live with that special someone they love.
Our guests are diverse but they all share a common journey. As they share their stories they’ll help us unravel the mystique that exists around choosing that special outfit and what they learned about themselves along the way.
The Choosing Your Reflection podcast is a series of weekly discussions about the allure and mystery of what brides and grooms choose to wear on their special day. Through our informal conversations we aim to unravel the significance of the “perfect” wedding day outfit, and how it is perceived through our guests’ eyes.

The best part? The interviews. I’ve enjoyed each and every one. And I think my guests have too. Here’s a quote from our very first interviewee in an episode that will be released very soon.
“That’s perfect, what you said. That’s exactly right. I didn’t really think about it until we had this podcast. So this is really insightful. This was fun. Thank you!”– Maureen
