Wedding Planner Workshop in Dallas!

We are excited to announce that the Dallas Office of Sweet Pea Events is offering another intensive one-day workshop called “Sweet Success!” – how to build a successful wedding planning business. This workshop is intended for people interested in learning more about the wedding industry and inside scoop on becoming a Wedding Planner!

Here are high-level details about the workshop:

When: Saturday, August 22, 2009 – 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Where: The Cascades Events Center at The Colony (near Plano/Frisco off of Highway 121) is generously hosting the space for this workshop. This venue is located at 5909 Stone Creek Drive, The Colony, TX 75056. For more information about this beautiful new venue, please visit

Why: There are some excellent wedding planner certification programs and networking groups available. However, we have found that there are very few options for people interested in simply attending a workshop to learn more about the wedding industry and what is involved with becoming a Wedding Planner. Our goal is to offer an affordable solution where you can be inspired, soak in a ton of valuable information and great take-aways which will help you to determine if wedding planning is the right career path for you. With my 8 years of experience as a Planner, I’m excited to share my history with aspiring Wedding Planners and help give you a jump start into this wonderful industry! I also have a passion for developing others, as I was in Human Resources prior to the wedding industry and thoroughly enjoy providing training and development opportunities!

What: We will cover a variety of topics which will include: Wedding Industry Statistics and Trends, Basics of Owning a Wedding Planning Business, Day in the Life of a Wedding Planner, Marketing Tips, Establishing Vendor Relationships, Pricing & Sales, Next Steps You Can Pursue, and More!

How: To reserve your space in this workshop, please contact Kelly at to request a registration form no later than Friday, August 14, 2009. The total cost of this workshop is $200 which will include lunch. If you bring a friend, the cost for each of you will only be $150! Registration will close on Friday, August 14, 2009, so please ensure your registration form and payment are submitted by then.
