wedding planning workshop

next workshop: Fall 2019

We'd love to hear from you! Please fill out our very brief 2 question survey!

 

wedding planning with intention

 

Join us for an intimate workshop designed to equip you with the knowledge you need for your wedding planning. Flourish offers a creative environment for you to feel inspired while also giving you the freedom to dream and plan your wedding with others who are following a similar journey.

 

Hiring a full service planner can cost $5,000 or more. We're offering you the tools and education you need to be equipped to do it yourself. You'll walk away with things crossed of your list, freebies to help you in the days ahead, and action steps for when you arrive back home. You'll feel reenergized from this invaluable experience!

 
 

What you'll learn and walk away having completed:

 

what you really would like from your wedding experience, so you can plan intentionally

what your wedding budget should look like and where to allocate the spending

how to save for your wedding

your wedding style: with professional help, you'll choose a color palette, your tabletop decor, and all your rentals for a cohesive feel

a layout for your venue

you'll have a hand lettered sign through the help of a expert calligrapher

how to get the best photos from you day and a great experience with your photographer

a to-do list that we'll work together to personalize with action step with what's ahead

a chance to ask personal questions throughout the day

an opportunity to brainstorm with other brides
