After the sweet, sugar and spice moments that had to do with your engagement, the time has come for you to face the road that everybody hopes will clinch on a happy note. YOUR WEDDING. Where to start? What to do first? When to begin planning? Who do I work with? How to get things done? These are just some of the questions that create mini-horror movies in your head instead of cheerfully putting together all the pieces for your big day. Yes, things can be more overwhelming than you expected them to be.
As a bride, you have the ability to go against all these fears and the power to break down all the walls that block your vision from seeing the beautiful picture waiting for you. This is what Bridal Rebellion is for. Powered by Wedding Wire, it’s a one day wedding planning workshop that will take place in New York City on April 13, 2013. Take this course as your private Knowledge Army, a boot camp that will train you for that romantic yet rough unfamiliar terrain (read: Wedding Planning).
When: 10AM-6PM, Saturday April 13, 2013
Where: 28on27 Studio, New York City
Registration Fee: $75 (early bird rate is $50, if you register before March 20th)
A quick glance at the event’s lineup of speakers will give you a window on how huge your takeaway will be. Prepare to be blown away by Wedding Wire Editor Kim Forrest, Green Bride Guide Founder Kate Harrison, Red-I by Chelsea Founder Chelsea Bond and other big guns from the wedding industry. It is a powerhouse of wedding professionals handpicked by Bridal Rebellion Founder Kira Hug to arm you with the necessary tools you will need for your special day.
Bridal Rebellion believes that wedding planning can be empowering but at the same time, expose a side of you that you never knew existed. The workshop is about keeping you focused on what needs to be done while having fun — whether it’s for a small intimate gathering or a big party. What you will learn from this one day course will also be useful in your daily life or career development. Expect a very relaxed and fun-filled learning environment, a far cry from expo halls filled by product pushing and aggressive salesmen. 15% of all ticket proceeds will go toward The Lower Eastside Girls Club of New York, a nonprofit organization focused on raising the next generation of environmental, entrepreneurial & ethical leaders. Also, please bring your gently-used bridesmaid dresses to Bridal Rebellion. These dresses will be donated to members of the Girls Club for prom night.
Now you know what to do on April 13th! Do yourself a favor. Gather your bridal party and your old bridesmaid dresses, head to Bridal Rebellion and get weducated! Early-bird rates ($50) end March 20. Register today.
