To keep abreast of all the latest trends and wedding happenings in our area, it is important as a certified wedding planner to continually network. I had the pleasure today to network with members of The Association of Wedding Professionals at The Hilton Garden Inn in Greenbelt, where our speaker Vicky Johnson, from Whose Wedding Is It Anyway , and owner of her own planning business , gave us great insight into how to continually have a vision for our business and how to assist our clients in understanding thier visions for their wedding.
Tonight I had the opportunity to be part of The Association of Bridal Consultants first meeting in Northern Virginia. David Wood, the Presdient of the national organization spoke to the group at The Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner. He spoke of how important education is in the wedding business. By taking classes, going to conferences, and by networking with others in the industry, we as wedding professionals can offer so much more to our wedding clients.
Networking opportunities and continuing education keep me fresh and excited to plan the next wedding!
