Planning Your Own Wedding?  See This Free Wedding Planning Video Series This Week!

Monday, January 12, 2015

In case you hadn't heard, Regalo Design just released and amazing FREE three-part wedding planning video series last week. This series gives brides some amazing insight into the world of a wedding planner.

The first video in the series discusses the major questions you should be asking when you first get engaged. What date are you going to choose, and where is your wedding going to take place. Those may seem like easy questions to answer, you've probably been thinking about them for a long time. However, before you make that decision, I urge you to watch the first video and I'd be willing to bet you'll walk away with insight you didn't realize you needed.

The beauty of a wedding planner is that they do this every day. And Regalo Design has planned hundreds of weddings. Normally you would have to hire a wedding planner to have someone walk you through these questions, but Sarah from Regalo Design is giving you this information for free.

When I asked her why she was doing this she said, "My husband, Damon, and I had the most amazing wedding day you can imagine. I get to give that gift to our clients on a daily basis. But there are people out there, regardless of the reason, that are going to plan their own wedding. I did! So I wanted to give them some tips while they're in the middle of it."

Planning your own wedding can be a daunting task. The good news is that now, you can have advice from a pro that does it every day. And it's 100% free!

The next two videos in the series (one is releasing today!) are going to cover even more topics. One is a question that every bride faces... who are the vendors you're going to hire to make your day amazing? Sarah has some great questions that you need to make sure you know to ask for everything from photographers to bakers. The final video in the series will reveal the "wedding planner's secrets.

UPDATE: The video series has expired.  Starting January 20, you can re-access the videos for a very limited time, here.

At our shows we create a boutique like atmosphere, setting up the ballroom into thirds. 1/3 dressing rooms; 1/3 gowns; 1/3 bridal partners. We create an intimate setting by helping brides-to-be say yes to the dress! Extra fun events are such as VIP power hours before the bridal show which offer the brides signature pink drinks, lite bites, and fun giveaways! In each city a grand prize is offered as well-usually a weekend stay in that hotel!  Also, each of our exclusive vendor tables will have a raffle item donating their free services to the brides, guests and volunteers. So come say yes to the dress and attend your local Brides against breast cancer bridal show!

Not familiar with The NotWedding? 

Show producers describe it as, " a bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding.  'Wedding guests' are brides-to-be who enjoy an emotional ceremony, a tasty dinner and a dance-party reception while truly experiencing the wedding vendors in action."

Not big on contests?  Buy tickets. 

Make sure to buy your tickets now, because the show always sells out!


Here are some lovely photos from the Chicago NotWedding, which were captured by Megan Saul Photography.  

I can't wait to see what talented, Nashville wedding designers create to inspire Nashville couples.  Hope to see you there!
