Nothing turns me on more than CHANGE. Change is the way of the universe. The moon changes on a monthly cycle. Technology changes by the second. Minds change…encouraged by our inner voices, intuition, or just because. Trends change, styles change, feelings change, and yes BRIDES change. I started in the wedding planning business in 1988 (ouch) as an apprentice, and started planning weddings on my own in 1996.
And I can’t help but notice how different brides are in 2010! Is it because of skyping? Facebook? On-line classes? Netflx? Not sure which modern convenience may be the cause…but they are just different!
They are smarter, savvier, more in control, they know what they want. Simply put, they are OWNING their brideship.
You know that planning your wedding CAN and SHOULD be PLEASURABLE, and you can do it by grabbing the TOOLS a traditional planner uses, and taking them and flying! Without the high cost of a traditional planner.
RICH GIRL WEDDING on a REAL GIRL BUDGET in NOT a Bridal Showcase. It is NOT a Bridal Expo. It is NOT an Informational Seminar. It is NOT a event where ANY businesses are going to pressure you to sign here, charge this, register for that, or buy those.
It is a WORKSHOP FOCUSED ON YOUR WEDDING
You are a bride with a purpose. A purpose to plan the wedding of your dreams and keep it within a budget. YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL.
I have been planning phenomenal weddings since 1996 (you can see how hot they are by going to www.carolinelarocca.com ). Like, big deal, celebrity style, no holds barred, sky’s the limit…princess weddings. And I have the time of my life doing them. I live and breathe wedding.
I have always wanted to bring that same mojo to brides who don’t have a traditional planner in the budget (or simply choose not to hire one) and who want to have the princess wedding….(IT’S POSSIBLE)
So we’re doing it in small groups (like NEVER more than 20 brides, but typically 12-15). And the small group concept is more beneficial in some ways than traditional planning–like how often do you get to kick ideas around with other brides???? NOT opinionated family members…NOT bridesmaids…but a few OTHER BRIDES IN THE SAME BOAT. Have you ever been around two women in a social setting who come to realize they are both getting married? Honey, this gives the term “let it rip” a whole new meaning…
So what will we do? What do you get? How in the heck will we get your wedding planned in 8 hours? You are so smart for asking those questions!
Give you TOOLS that I use as a traditional planner.
Give you INFORMATION that I give my princess planning clients.
Give you YOUR OWN BUDGET.
Give you your own TIMELINE for the wedding weekend events with a full drawn out plan for your director if you have one, as if I were directing (the key here is the plan, not just showing up).
Give you TRUTHS about what industry pressures (I’m on the other side, remember?).
Give you NEGOTIATING strategies that I use as a traditional planner.
TELL YOU LIKE IT IS if I think something will or won’t work for you.
Give you a BLUEPRINT for your wedding the same as I would for my traditional clients right after the initial consultation.
Give you MY SECRETS so that you learn how to do and make certain things yourself that princess brides pay thousands for.
Give you my ANSWERS to every question from “How do I communicate with my mother-in-law on things we disagree about” to “How do I address my situation on the invitation?” to “How do we honor relatives who have passed away?” to “Should I expect so and so to pay for THAT?”…and ladies this is the place to ask WHATEVER you want, cuz the doors are shut and it’s just us gals if you catch my drift
And I give it all to you with STYLE, FUN, FLAIR and TRUTH. Ladies, this is not a boring day long seminar. Life is a celebration, and if you are not celebrating everyday…somethings gotta give! We round out the day with a CHAMPAGNE LUNCHEON, a couple of inspirational guests who will get you moving and breathing so you stay centered and focused on the purpose of getting your wedding planning off the ground, and of course a little bit of fashion….because we are after all, GIRLS!
You will leave inspired with a sense of accomplishment, lots of goodies, a strategy, a plan…and a GIFT BAG. And…after the workshop, you get one more hour of one on one consulting with me.
So here’s the thing. You CAN plan it all yourself. I just give you the nudge you need to get on the path the you need to be on. And I’m always available for you, should need you need to pick my brain some more…
