Register Now & Join Us at The Wedding Experience by StudioWed, Sept 30
Wednesday, September 5, 2012
It's back! The Wedding Experience (TWE) hosted by StudioWed returns on Sunday, September 30. Unlike a typical bridal show with hundreds of booths and brides, TWE is a more intimate way to get advice and to find Nashville wedding professionals for your big day. StudioWed has hand-picked 30 wedding pros that will be great resources as you plan, from florals to food.
I reached out to Kelly of StudioWed to learn more about this year's event. Here's what she had to say...
How is The Wedding Experience different than a bridal show?
The Wedding Experience is comprised of both educational components and individual one-on-one conversations with quality vendors, so it’s like a hybrid of other events out there. It’s less overwhelming than a traditional bridal expo because we intentionally keep it intimate and focus on personalized attention. It’s also interactive: in between the mini-seminars, we have fun breaks where we’ll incorporate fun activities like a NearlyWed Game, and give tips on preparing yourself mentally and physically for the wedding day -- even advice on buying a house! So much goes into planning a wedding and marriage, and we want to help the process go smoother! We genuinely care about the whole experience for our couples, so we’ve tailored the structure of our event to fit their needs.
Why should brides attend?
Brides (and grooms – we’re also unique in that we appeal to couples more than just brides!!) should attend The Wedding Experience to gain the knowledge necessary to have a positive wedding planning experience, to discover what all goes into planning such a production, and to prepare themselves for all the little things that inevitably come up. We’ve combined practical advice (like how to construct a timeline) with inspirational eye candy (hello, pretty tablescapes!) and plenty of time to discuss the intimate details of each couple’s wedding with quality, experienced vendors.
What can they expect?
The Wedding Experience is a stay-all-day event (not come and go like most bridal shows) from 2 – 6 p.m., Sunday, September 30. If you’re one of the first 20 brides to pre-register, you’ll receive a swag bag brimming with gorgeous goodies you won’t want to miss! The first half of the event will consist of four short seminars, educating couples about wedding planning in general, décor, wedding-day wellness, and catering. Then we’ll serve appetizers, drinks, and dismiss guests to mingle and view displays with our StudioWed vendors.
How can a bride make the most of the event?
A bride can make the most of the event by coming ready to learn (we’ll provide little notebooks just in case you want to take notes!) and geared with whatever she knows she’s lacking in the planning process (regardless of whether her wedding’s in a week or a year – we’ve got something for everyone!). We have 30-something handpicked, exclusive vendors who are happy to help your wedding day dreams come true, so dive in!
Even as someone who’s worked in the wedding industry for a few years, when I got engaged last November, there were still so many things I hadn’t even given thought to before planning my real-life wedding. Weddings require so much decision-making, prioritizing, and preparation; brides of all kinds can benefit from an event like this – even the ones who have had their weddings “planned” since they were 4!
I was not able to attend last year's event but certainly look forward to going this year. And so should you! Click here to buy your tickets and get a swag bag with your pre-registeration! See you there.
