South Texas Event Professionals was created by local, home-grown wedding and special event industry leaders who saw a need to give wedding couples an affordable way to acquire the needed information to plan their special day. For most, this is their first time planning an event on this scale with so much financially at stake. And more often, for an assortment of reasons, the engaged couple lacks family members or choose not to use a wedding planner to help and advise them, leading to frustrations, uninformed decisions and unnecessary expenditures. This is the first time anything like this has been done to educate couples getting married in the San Antonio area.
The Wedding Academy is a forum of 12 event professionals, one from each vendor category necessary to host such an event, where engaged couples may ask their questions and receive information and tips on how to better plan the day, what things to be aware of and what they should avoid. This is done at no obligation to the panel of event professional speakers. This is meant to be time where the attending engaged couples feel comfortable expressing their concerns in a venue open House, a setting most of them are familiar with, and with other attending engaged couples they can share information and advice.
The academy will include an array of cocktails and food to sample, an informational pamphlet covering the night’s discussion, and a chance at winning one of over $3,500 in products and services they can use for their wedding day.
Pre-purchase your tickets here. Pre-purchased tickets are $15 per couple. Otherwise, admission is $25 per couple at the door. Hope to see you there!!
