by Aleisha

bridechilla-premium-1800x1800-3You’ve got wedding planning questions and Save The Date Wedding Podcast host Aleisha McCormack, has answers! In this episode Celebrant Josh Withers returns as a special guest Q&A questions answerer person. Josh is an Australian marriage celebrant (who regularly travels all over the world marrying people) …lucky chap and lucky people, because Josh is tops! We talk grooms grooming, vow writing and #Tweddings  (I learn what a pomade is!). Josh also talks about how he’d change his wedding if he and his wife Britt were to do it again. Get ready, because there are TWO Australian accents to deal with!

Writing [easyazon_link identifier=”0770433790″ locale=”US” tag=”savthedatwedp-20″]wedding vows[/easyazon_link] can be tricky. As Josh says in the podcast, not everyone wants or feels the need to write them totally from scratch. There are so many great books and websites to inspire you. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before but Rich and I had readings in our ceremony from [easyazon_link identifier=”0553569155″ locale=”US” tag=”savthedatwedp-20″]Jerry Seinfeld[/easyazon_link] and [easyazon_link identifier=”0449902854″ locale=”US” tag=”savthedatwedp-20″]Woody Allen[/easyazon_link]. Nothing traditional about that, but they made us laugh and think and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Josh performed one of the first…if not the first twitter wedding, twedding…have a gander at Josh’s Twitter wedding here. 

Josh raved about his love of [easyazon_link identifier=”B005IC3C1O” locale=”US” tag=”savthedatwedp-20″]pomades[/easyazon_link] for men and one beauty product that I absolutely can’t live without (well look it doesn’t prevent death but it does prevent bad hair days) is dry shampoo. I read an article on bustle recently about washing your hair less and I’m taking that on board. [easyazon_link identifier=”B005D7G12Q” locale=”US” tag=”savthedatwedp-20″]Dry Shampoo[/easyazon_link] (especially the coloured one for us brown heads) is one of those must pack items for travel and I have been known to get pretty feisty when airport security people challenge me on it.

As well as marrying folk, Josh and his wife Britt run The Pop-Up Wedding Co,creating fancy and meaningful elopementsFan-bloody-tastic idea if I do say so myself. 

I haven’t made a ‘Aleisha’s book recommendation to take your mind of wedding planning‘ in a while…so here goes. I think I’ve mentioned before that I like the apocalypse. That sounds weird. I should rephrase. I’m fascinated in that genre. I read [easyazon_link identifier=”0307455173″ locale=”US” tag=”savthedatwedp-20″]Zone One[/easyazon_link] by Colson Whitehead on our honeymoon. Forget romance novels, it’s dystopian nightmares all the way with me baby! It was a thrilling read, highly big wordy and visual…this is not a pulp novel here people. This is quality shit. (I’m sure Colson would love me describing his novel that way!).

“It’s a book you want to read rather than one you should read…while still providing the chilling, fleshy pleasures of zombies who lurch, pursue, hunger. . . . One of the best books of the year.” —Esquire

A pandemic has devastated the planet, sorting humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. After the worst of the plague is over, armed forces stationed in Chinatown’s Fort Wonton have successfully reclaimed the island south of Canal Street—aka Zone One. Mark Spitz is a member of one of the three-person civilian sweeper units tasked with clearing lower Manhattan of the remaining feral zombies. Zone One unfolds over three surreal days in which Spitz is occupied with the mundane mission of straggler removal, the rigors of Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder (PASD), and the impossible task of coming to terms with a fallen world.
