Experience has always been the best teacher. That is why this last weekend I made a conscious decision to be a part of the Grand Wedding Expo which was held at the Thika Road Mall in the Convention Centre.
The Wedding industry, just like any other industry, is always on the move. The way weddings were conducted 20 years ago is not the same way they are done today. Everything is changing and as a wedding planner one of the ways to keep up with the ever changing trends is to visit such exhibitions, interact with different vendors and see different, new, out of the norm ways of planning a wedding.
It is also a great way of connecting and networking with vendors who I plan on working with in the near future.
Wedding expos are not only beneficial for Wedding planners but also for couples planning their weddings. In this specific expo, there was a couple who had a talk with the audience on Vows that Last. They narrated their 7 years married life to the audience and there were some lessons to be learnt from what they had already been through.
One of the other speakers was a gentleman from Centonomy 101. We all know that one of the things that break up most couples nowadays is finances. Thus it is very important for every couple to learn how to handle their finances right from the start and this will not only help reduce financial stress in the marriage but it will also help them in their wealth creation journey.
All in all it was a great learning experience for me and an eye opener to what I am looking forward to offering my clients now and in the days to come.
