Yesterday, amid a bit of an unexpected rainfall, we completed our third ever Wedding Academy hosted by the very inimitable Witte Museum.

We had 11 couples (and one very cute baby) register for the event to listen to 14 local wedding professionals share tips, tricks, and insider information about planning a wedding. Our educators helped us to give away a swag bag to every couple attending that was worth over $800, and further donated, over $2,000 worth of raffle prizes.

STEP Wedding Academy

The goal of each of our Wedding Academies is to educate couples who are in the midst of planning a wedding. As professionals who have provided services to hundreds, maybe even thousands of weddings, we find that many couples have unrealistic expectations when it comes to planning their weddings.

Some have unrealistic timelines sometimes thinking they can plan an elaborate ballroom wedding and reception in under four months. Some have unrealistic expectations thinking they can completely enjoy (and recall) their wedding day without a professional planner. Other times some have unrealistic budgets based on the aesthetic they are hoping to achieve. Most often, they have unrealistic expectations of performance based on the caliber or level of the experience of the vendors they are choosing.

The only way couples know how to compare wedding vendors is by price. And, simply put, that will never work in a couple’s favor.

STEP is here to help couples set realistic expectations one couple at a time… one Wedding Academy at a time. We are here to generously share our expertise with couples and we are here to make this educational process fun!
