Overview of the Events and Overall Experience
So this week I attended some of the DC Wedding Week events, and without knowing what to expect (It's the first year), I was very pleased with the experience! Out of the 4 or 5 events, I was able to attend the Kick-Off, hosted at Malmaison DC, the Wine & Cheese event at the Industrious Co-Working Space DC and lastly the "Not So Average" workshop on how to build your business from the ground up. Other events, that I unfortunately did not get to attend, was a 'Coffee and Conversations" event, which included a panel with Wedding Industry Disrupters and the Faux Wedding Experience.
My most favorite of the events I attended was the Wine & Cheese event. I over indulged on candid conversations between Wedding Professionals from planners to photographers to DC's hottest Make-Up Artists. What I enjoyed most was the willingness of everyone to share what they knew on how to brand yourself in what's become a saturated market and of course the networking! I met so many of the local pros that I stalk... I mean follow (smile) on Social Media and it was inspiring to say the least.
All in all I had a great time during DC's Inaugural Wedding Week and can't wait until next year to see what the event will have in store. For pics and video of from the week, head over to my Instastories!
