January 2017: Love and Money: The State of the Wedding Industry

What a way to kick off the new year!  January’s all member meeting really got our wheels turning learning about the state of the industry.  Our speaker Liene Stevens showed off her expertise by describing what our couples are looking for and at while planning their weddings. Did you know that fresh flowers relax people and help to close 30% more sales? And who knew the average wedding hires approximately 43 vendors to work with them on their special day?

Speaking of vendors, this night’s sponsors truly put together a super chic event for us to enjoy.  The rustic tables provided by Signature Party Rentals filled the room with such elegance.  OC Pixie delivered an enchanting new way to photo booth with their magic mirror and fun props.  The dinner served by The Mission Viejo Country Club was amazing, as expected.  And the donut wall created by Lavish Candy gave us a fun treat to enjoy on the way home.  Learning about the state of the industry was truly inspiring, motivating…and delicious.  Wishing you all successful 2017!

Thank you to all of our sponsors.
