Allison from Lindsay Landman Events emailed me about two great New York Wedding Workshops that are coming up in June. They both sound like a great way to get your wedding planning started off on the right foot.
“How to Get the Most for Your Money”
Tuesday, June 9
6:30pm – 9:00pm
Whether your wedding budget is $25,000 or $500,000, this economic climate demands that you get the best value for your dollar. Learn expert planner Lindsay Landman’s tricks of the trade starting with making a realistic budget, deciphering vendor pricing and negotiating a favorable contract. This is a workshop for every bride on every budget as great value always translates to getting more of what you want. Walk away with specific vendor referrals and bridal shopping tips to save you serious cash.
“How to Design on a Dime”
Saturday, June 27, 2009
10:00am – 1:00pm
This invaluable course will teach brides on every budget level how to maximize the look and style of their wedding. Starting with invitation design right through to tabletop and every decorative element in between, learn what is worth the splurge and where you can save while enhancing each element of your decor. Work hands-on with actual materials and experiment with colors, textures and styles for your wedding. Attendees will leave this session with a list of NYC and online decor shopping resources, how-to guides to create breathtaking paper products that don’t look homemade (menus, programs, etc.) and referrals for decorators and florists who will actually give you a proposal that is within your budget parameters. This is a do-not-miss for DIY’ers!
They both sound like the smart bride’s way to learn how to get the most of her budget. So if you are lucky enough to be in NYC on these dates, definitely check them out. You can buy tickets on the website, or by calling 212.206.9201
