Wedding Planning Roadmap August 2014


We are SO EXCITED to share with you the newest experience from Kentucky Bride ... Wedding Planning Roadmap! A little background ... Mom {Jacki} and I were driving around Western Kentucky vising some amazing wedding professionals and dreaming of ideas on how we can not only reach more couples, but how can we bring more couples and wedding professionals together ... and in what platforms can we bring them together other than the swoon-worthy print issues and the awe-inspiring blog posts!

Having over 25+ years combined as full service wedding planners and over 5 years curating Kentucky Bride magazine, the first things we thought of were:

* What are some of the main questions we get asked?  * What are couples really "needing" in their planning process? * What resources do we have at our fingertips? * What can we provide them with that they may not be getting elsewhere? * Stick to our core values: education and inspiration! * How can we pamper these ladies? * What about their mothers, bridesmaids, and friends that are sharing the planning process with them? * And the thoughts just kept coming and coming until we had to literally pull off the side of the road and put pen to paper to write everything down before we forgot it!

After many meetings, planning, and input from the whole team, we created ...

Wedding Planning Roadmap: Helping You Navigate Your Planning Journey

This will be a one day course that will help guide you through your journey of planning from the time you answered "Yes" up until you say "I Do". You will hear from experts in the wedding industry handpicked by Kentucky Bride to bring you the best tips, advice and inspiration!

We will be discussing Timelines - Guests List - Etiquette - Budget - How to Review Vendor Contracts - Creating a Cohesive Event - Decor - Invitations - and So Much More!

We will be meeting in some of the most inviting, relaxing and inspiring locations {see below}.

Your experience will leave you feeling empowered, relaxed and able to be the Captain of the wedding planning team that you create; whether that be your wedding professionals, family or friends.

You will leave with all of your questions answered, an exclusive 40+ page Wedding Planning Roadmap Guidebook {see below for more information}, and special treats from the wedding professionals!

What is this Guidebook you ask? Let me tell you ... The Guidebook will be packed full of information from everything that is discussed in person as well as topics that we don't have time to cover! You will have worksheets, checklists, sample budgets, and more for you to refer to throughout your planning process. The Guidebook will be your navigation tool and already 3-hole punched to put in your wedding binder!

So, who's ready to explore this journey with us? We hope you are!  Just in case you are wondering ... Wedding Planning Roadmap is open to ANYONE that is a part of the planning process ... Brides, Grooms, Mother of the Bride, Maid of Honor, Bridesmaid, anyone!  You also don't have to be recently engaged to attend. You can be anywhere in your planning process - we are here to meet you where you are at!
