Check out my post on WeddingWire’s ProBlog!

by Jennifer on June 10, 2013

So, yeah…it’s been a while since I’ve posted here.  Life happens.  However, I’m thrilled to announce two things.

One: after a truly tumultuous few months on the personal side, I’ve now got some fantastic new posts in the pipeline. In the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on all kinds of topics, and introducing a new regular feature.

Two, I’ve written another article for WeddingWire’s Education Center ProBlog, available to WeddingWire pros.  Check out my tips on keeping your head above water in the wedding busy season (timely topic, don’t you think)?  Here’s the link to the article — I’d love to know your thoughts!

See y’all real soon!

I’ve been following people’s outrage over the new ReviewerCard, a piece of plastic that apparently entitles its holder to “premium service” from restaurants, hotels, retailers and other businesses.  How does it do that?  Well, the cardholder is supposed to present the card at the time of service, which in effect will intimidate the business into […]

Why “Wedding Confidential” should make you proud, not mad

Last Friday, the ABC News program 20/20 aired a segment called “Wedding Confidential,” which they pitched as some kind of scathing exposé of the wedding industry. My fellow wedding business writers/speakers/consultants Alan Berg and Andy Ebon already beat me to critiquing the show.  Which is great, because it gave me some time to consider my thoughts on […]

Steering your business through personal disasters

The wedding industry is special for several reasons: it’s dominated by small businesses, it’s full of extraordinarily creative (and often not terribly business-minded) people, and business owners tend to blur the line between their professional and private lives more than in most industries that come to mind.

So I lied last Monday when I said I’d be back last Wednesday with a new post. Maybe I should feel bad about it, as I’m generally someone who tries very hard to keep her word, but to be totally honest, I don’t.  It was a short week, I’ve been juggling an entirely new routine, and […]

Okay, so my “short hiatus” turned into a longer break than I’d anticipated. Life gets in the way sometimes. I’m excited to get back to sharing advice, perspective, and my fair share of rants on all things wedding. I’m also wide open to topic ideas, so please don’t hesitate to email me if there are subjects […]
