This year, the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) hosted their annual conference in Indianapolis, Indiana and I was there!! This was my first conference since becoming a member 3 years ago and I really enjoyed myself. It was a whirlwind and it all seemed to go by so quickly, but here are some of the most exciting parts.
Day one I checked into the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis and attended a meeting on “How to Market and Position your Business to Mainstream Media,” by Editor in Chief of Get Married Magazine, Stephanie Davis. Later that evening they hosted the opening reception titled “Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend.” Day two Frank Andonoplas, MBC – Frank’s Event Design, Chicago, IL was one of the key note speakers and gave us all inspiration to be better planners. We had a great lunch with a “Fashionista” theme and L. Gene Huddleson from Detail+Design Indianapolis In. went over 5 different priced tablescapes, and how you can make a beautiful table with any budget, it was amazing. The last day topped it all off with Ciara Daykin of Firefly Occasions and Rockstar Wedding Planner speaking at our luncheon, Peggy Post giving us all updates on Wedding Etiquette and closing out the convention was Sylivia Weinstock! She is an amazing and extremely talented lady.
Next year’s conference will be in Phoenix Az., closer to home so I will be attending! Check out some pictures below and for more pictures become a Fan of Platinum Lining Events on Facebook!
