You’re busy. You’re in the middle of life and now you have wedding-planning stress.
Everything you need is here.
Every problem you’re having, there’s a lesson that addresses it. And what’s so cool, is that you only need to watch the ones that are relevant to you.
This is so easy. Any moment a problem comes up, you just go into the topic list and there’s a video on that exact problem.
It’s like having a wedding therapist in your back pocket!
What topics are covered in The Course?
With video lessons from 25+ leading-edge therapists and life-coaches for women, you'll find the one that works for you below...
You’ll learn how to:
Break out of perfectionism-hell so that you no longer hyperventilate when the florist tells you your blooms aren’t “in season”.
Feel good about the way you look, so you're actually excited to see your wedding photos.
Learn how to say NO while keeping the peace, so that your in-laws still like you when you tell them they can't invite random people to the wedding.
Get on the same page with your partner about the budget, so you both know where the money is coming from.
Stop counting calories (or points or portions or whatever) so you can enjoy the pre-wedding charcuterie boards, obsession-free.
No more staying up all night at the last minute!! Learn the secrets of a master-procrastinator on how to get sh*t done, without the usual shame of failed “time management” techniques.
Learn how to trust yourself, so you can stop worrying and waffling and say yes to the damn dress already!
Learn playful, diva-free ways of saying no, so if one of your bridesmaids hates her dress, you can steer her back in line without major drama.
Create a wedding that’s unique to YOU so you don’t find yourselves doing the world’s most awkward first dance… when everyone knows you both hate dancing.
Make this process more fun so that you don’t break out in hives every time you have to sit down with your to-do list.
And so much more...
Are there lessons that apply to you?
Within 10 major topic areas, you’ll find specific lessons that you can watch if they apply to you.
Read below to see if your issues are covered:
If your mother is trying to tell you what to do, what to eat, or generally dominating the process... and you feel really uncomfortable and you want it to stop...
>>> There’s a lesson for that.
If your fiancé is totally disengaged and not participating in the wedding planning and it’s making you resentful and tired...
>>> There’s a lesson for that.
If you’re completely overwhelmed by all the choices, and you’re wasting your energy, crippled by indecision...
>>> There’s a lesson for that.
If you feel like you’re 100 lbs overweight and can’t get right with how you look right now...
>>> There’s a lesson for that.
If you’ve been planning for 2+ years and now one of your bridesmaids is going to be 9 months pregnant on your wedding day, and you’re pissed, but she was trying to get pregnant for a long time, so you feel petty for hating the timing of this.....
>>> There’s a lesson for that!
If your cousin got engaged after you, and planned her wedding for before yours, and now people have to prioritize which wedding to go to, and you want to get over it, but you CAN'T...
>>> Yes, there is a lesson for that.
If your parents refuse to come to your wedding, or are being unsupportive, and your heart is breaking with disappointment...
>>> This is more common than you think. You are not alone and you are so loved, and there is a lesson for that.
There’s a lesson for every wedding-planning bump you hit along the way.
The Course for Brides is NOT a "wedding planning" course.
You wont find any timeline or budgeting advice here (although the lesson on money stress WILL help you reduce family fights, while securing a cash injection from your parents)!
If you have stress, anxiety or conflict, on the otherhand... Or if you LOVE personal development and you want to show up in life as your best self NOW (not just in your wedding pictures), then you're in the right place.
How it works:
Log in, browse the topics, and pick a lesson that applies to you. You have access to all 28 lessons, and can start and stop at your own pace.
You can binge multiple lessons before taking action, or just pick the one that you need the most, when something specific comes up.
You have 24-hour access to the videos and can watch them as many times as you like.
Each lesson teaches tools that you can practice in real life. You get better and better the more you use them.
This means that long after your wedding day, you will have skills in things like communication, boundary-setting, confidence-building, money strategy, time-management, decision-making, nervous-system regulation, mindset and visualization.
The Course for Brides is a self-study program designed specifically for you.
These 28 lessons were custom designed for brides and wedding stress. Each lesson includes a 20-30 minute video, with a minimum of 2 actionable "tools" you can put into practice right away.
AND, although there are 28 amazing lessons, you only have to watch the ones that apply to you! If you find one lesson, tip or tool that works for you, it could change your life.
As you learn new skills, you will gain power, confidence, magnetism, emotional intelligence and the communication skills to handle anything that comes your way.
Because it's not just about your wedding!
The lessons and practices you learn in The Course will carry you through life: daily interactions, holidays, family events and all the big milestones.
Set new precedents. Re-set the patterns that aren't serving you.
You will emerge knowing how to show up for YOURSELF in love, family, friendships and work, for the rest of your life.
You will teach and inspire those around you to take responsibility for their own joy and wellbeing.
You will be a living legacy of groundedness, confidence, fabulousness and love.
Will these lessons work for you?
Women have a lot of perfectionisty beliefs around personal development...
We tell ourselves, "I'll be ready to up-level when...
...Basically, "when I'm perfect, then I'll be ready."
We are told that our problems are due to vague things like a "lack of self-love".... We believe that issues, like people-pleasing or family dynamics, cannot be solved without years of therapy... But I disagree.
While I 100% encourage evidence-based and trauma-informed therapy for those who can access it... my experience is that a lot of challenges can be solved quite simply through skill-building.
In other words, it's not that you have low self-esteem... it's that there's a skill you haven't learned yet. And you're going to learn it. And then you'll have it.
That is all.
You can have great self-esteem, or not. AND you're still worthy and capable of creating a life that you love right now.
Hi, I'm Kate O' Connor
Life coach for women, and founder of The Course for Brides!
Working as a wedding photographer for almost 20 years (and 250+ weddings), I have worked closely with hundreds of brides.
...And I have SEEN. IT. ALL.
Whatever you're going through, you are not alone!
My goal for creating The Course is to get you through all the wedding BS with effective emotional balance tools, and for your engagement and wedding to become a catalyst for your personal transformation!
My wish for you is to look back at this WHOLE time in your life – not just ONE day – and remember it as wonderful. Fun, overflowing with love... and the time in your life when you stepped into your true power.
Is The Course Right for Me?
The Course is for you if you struggle with any of these issues:
Anxiety, panic or anxiety-related health problems
Financial stress and conflict about money
Body image, dieting and weight issues
Social anxiety, fear and awkwardness in the spotlight
People-pleasing and caretaking (putting others before yourself, to your own detriment)
You're an empath (you are affected by other people's moods and energy)
Difficult people, pressure or expectations
Walking on eggshells around difficult conversations
Conflict with parents, in-laws, or partner
Not feeling supported, heard, or understood
Dealing with guilt, competition and jealousy (yours or other people’s)
Coping with the illness or death of a loved one
Stress around time/project management and procrastination
You just want to have fun, feel beautiful, and be surrounded by people you love!
Whether you have the coolest in-laws...
the most low-key wedding...
the craziest family...
or are planning the biggest gala of the year...
You deserve to be present and enjoy!
Your wedding planning is the start of your wedding. It should be treated with the same care as the "big day."
Start your marriage off with new skills for dealing with any and every challenge that comes up.
MYTH: Wedding planning is super-stressful but it’ll be “worth it” if your wedding day goes according to the plan.
TRUTH: If you're stressing, fighting, or feeling overwhelmed during wedding planning, that will be part of your "wedding memories" too. The way to preserve this precious time in your life is to solve the problems, and get back to enjoyment, as easily as possible.
Your anxieties and issues won't suddenly disappear for your wedding. If anything, they'll be magnified... Unless you have the skills to deal with them.
THE COURSE IS WHERE YOU LEARN THOSE SKILLS.
