Philly Wedding Planning Bootcamp 3.31.12

On March 31, 2012, Always Fabulous Events took over The Brossman Center @ Lutheran Theological Seminary of Philadelphia along with other local wedding industry experts to whip a few brides' MINDS into shape as they plan their weddings. 

The event space welcomed spring with apple green & hot pink linens, flowers, and lighting. Each registered guest received a swag bag full of goodies and a personalized wedding resource guide. 

As the hostess and event planner, I opened the event with information about planning the wedding budget. This included tips about having the initial conversations with everyone planning to make financial contributions to the wedding fund, how to set up a realistic budget, and the next steps to plan the wedding after the spending limits and priorities have been established. Then each wedding professional took a turn discussing their specific area of expertise. 

We learned a lot, had a few laughs, and ate amazingly delicious cake. 

We couldn't have done any of this without the support of our fabulous presenters and sponsors: 
Venue: Rita Faison of The Brossman Center @ LTSP
Lighting: Gene Durbano of DJs Available Sound & Light
Cake: Rafael Logrono of Rafael Logrono Cake Design
Filmography: Darrell Aubert of Aubert Films
Photography: Sarah Wimberley of FlickFoto
Invitations: Christina Carnevale of Paper Rock Scissors
Dance: Lynn MacKerell of Siti Dance Studio
Honeymoon Planning: Mattie Johnson of C'est Chic Vacations
Linens: Gala Cloths
Flowers: Kremp Florist

And special thanks to all of our registered guests for coming out and being a fun group to work with. We look forward to doing another event like this later in the year. If you are interested in participating as a bride/groom, presenter, or sponsor, please email us at
