WHY did I develop The Wedding Planning Bootcamp? I have met with too many brides in the process of planning their wedding that feel overwhelmed, alone and have no idea where to start, stop or take a break (could that be you? even for a minute?). With 1000s of blogs, magazines, websites, twitter, facebook, and all of the other resources out there trying to get your attention – including your family, friends, and neighbor across the street – the planning process can be stressful! How many weddings have you planned in your lifetime? Uhm, none, right? Event planning is a tough job requiring intense attention to detail and industry savvy… who has that? We DO! I bring in local wedding professionals who are educational resources, not salespeople, to talk to you about organizing your thoughts and plans, how to make it easier, and how to support you in your planning process. My goal for you is that this productive, educational workshop will guide you toward a creative, enjoyable planning process that is as stress-free as humanly possible.
