11 Lessons Learned at WeddingMBA: Series starts Today

While speaking and exhibiting at WeddingMBA last week, we also snuck in a few sessions and came back many lessons learned from the largest wedding industry convention in the U.S.

In our new series — 11 Lessons Learned at WeddingMBA — we’ll share some of what we learned with you, our wedding industry friends.

You’ll find a few new lessons each week for the next month.  We’ll also send out a weekly digest (sign-up here to receive the email) of the lesson highlights.

And we start you with a bonus lesson: Not many people are awake at 9 a.m. on Wednesday during WeddingMBA. 

You see, the evening before is the WeddingWire party at the Palms (which we enjoyed but left early to get in a good night’s sleep).  So we know that many of you who did attend WeddingMBA probably missed Kelly Werder’s session, The Runaway Bride: Protecting Your Business and Your Money.  Well you view the slides HERE and still take advantage of the Contract Review or Template special. {inquire via email to:}

Now, on to Lesson One: Vintage & Rustic are still here, they’re just more specific {The Knot’s Rebecca Dolgin shares 2013 Trends at WeddingMBA}


WedBiz is reporting from WeddingMBA all week! Check out

We’re so excited to be attending, exhibiting and speaking at WeddingMBA.  And we’ll be updating you on all the fun!

If you’re at WeddingMBA, be sure to stop by the WedBiz booth.  If you’re not, be sure to check out our take on all the goings-on on our blog HERE.


Wedding Conferences: Five Tips for making the most of your experience

With a few large conferences upcoming in September — including WeddingMBA and NAWPconnect — WedBiz Journal offers Five Tips for making the most of your conference experience.

1. Use it or Lose it!  Start to incorporate what you’ve learned immediately or you’re bound to forget it.  The biggest waste of time and money is not using what you’ve learned at a professional conference.

2. Take notes and be sure to look at them AFTER the conference.  Many attendees go to the conference, take copious notes, and never look at them again.  You can’t incorporate what you can’t remember.

3. Bring business cards and be sure to give them out — to EVERYONE!  Conferences are a great networking opportunity.  So many times at a conference, attendees actually forget to bring their business cards, making connecting after the conference difficult.

4. Get your elevator speech ready.  You may only have a couple minutes to make an impression on others you’re networking with so be sure to have your 30 second “elevator speech,” describing who you are and what you do, ready to go.

5. Follow-up!  Be sure to follow-up quickly with those you have met, including the speakers.  View their websites, follow them on Twitter, Like their pages on Facebook and explore how you may be able to work together.

And if you’re attending WeddingMBA or NAWPconnect, be sure to say hi to Editor-in-Chief Kelly Werder.  {Have your elevator speech ready!}
