They learned “how to tie the knot”
It was a fabulous day to talk weddings! On a sunny Sunday in August, Inspired Occasions hosted our first education seminar at the gorgeous Pat’s Barn at Rensselaer Technology Park. I am proud to say that “How-to Tie the Knot: Planning Strategies for Today’s D.I.Y. Bride” was a big hit.
So what did we do all day? The morning was all about planning basics. We talked about setting priorities, creating timelines and tackling the dreaded BUDGET. Registrants were also treated to expert information from a few talented guest speakers. Michele Peters of Ambiance Florals & Events was on hand to take the intimidation out of floral decisions. A talk on photography options and trends was given by Yvette Wilson from Photography In Design. And because planning a wedding can at times be a stressful process, Certified Life Coach Diane Albano was on hand to teach some techniques for taking it down a notch.
The highlight of the day for me and for the seminar participants was our afternoon design workshop when we transformed a reception table from “Tired to Inspired” using some easy to follow design principles and incorporating a few creative do it yourself projects.
Feedback from everyone who attended was overwhelmingly positive. I know that I had an absolute blast talking about my favorite topic all day. Thanks to all those brides and their guests who participated. You guys were such a fun group!
I had a vision of a relaxed and informative day all about supporting brides on their planning journey. I am so grateful to my Inspired Occasions team for helping me bring that vision to life. Couldn’t have done it without you guys!
With a successful debut behind us, we are looking forward to planning a winter session for all those brides newly engaged during the holiday and valentines seasons. Keep your eyes and ears open for new session information coming soon.
