Hosting and hospitality are in Melissa McNeeley's blood, along with a love for flowers, cocktails, good food, all things vintage, setting a pretty table and obsessing over color palettes. In this workshop Melissa will walk us through a checklist for throwing a dinner party at home. It doesn't have to be stressful! With some prep, you can have as much fun as your guests. Melissa will cover tabletop decor, seating, guest list, playlist, a recipe for her favorite simple passed app and a classic punch (there will be samples!)
Join Melinda from Lion in the Sun as she walks us through the art of writing a thank you note, then write one to someone you met or were inspired by at the Love Union! Lion in the Sun will provide the stationery and we'll take care of mailing them for you.
Wedding Industry -- You're Crushing It Right Now! (A Reality Check) with Meg Keene of A Practical Weddin
Keynote: Wedding Industry -- You're Crushing It Right Now! (A Reality Check) with Meg Keene of A Practical Wedding
2017 has been such a grim ride, that it's easy to feel like it's all doom and gloom in weddings too. But if there is one thing that feels like a ray of hope right now, it's how much the wedding industry has changed for the better, and how their seems to be a new focus on doing the work to make more progress. As we close the Love Union with a discussion of the state of the industry, we'll talk about how we are both winning and failing at diversity, and how a few small changes in your business can open you up to a whole new market (while making the wedding industry a better place at the same time.) We'll also talk data. We've pulled information from our massive data trove on what readers want to see, what's getting clicks and bookings, and the surprising things our readers (and your clients) are looking for. We'll round out the talk with a whole lot of Q&A, plus some serious complementing each other on how cute our business cards (and shoes) are.
