What is The Wedding University?

The inaugural Wedding University took place on Sunday, February 8, 2009. We were filled to capacity with enthusiastic couples eager to learn the many aspects of wedding planning. From 11am-5pm, our students rotated between classes to learn about wedding design, wedding logistics, photography, beauty, and other important topics. In addition, they sampled amazing food from a sushi bar to a prime rib station to an elaborate dessert buffet--all from the creative culinary team at the Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley. An extraordinary decor room that featured 4 very distinct styles was the perfect inspiration for couples to brainstorm on their own wedding style! There were absolutely no 'selling' going on at our event, as compared to the conventional wedding fairs. It was truly one of a kind, classy, and fun event. At the end of the day, one lucky couple won the grand prize--a 3 night stay at one of 3 Four Seasons Resort, including Lanai and Bora Bora.

Meeting of the Minds Again

Yesterday, Jean and I met with the Bridal Beauty and Attire Group, which included Armando of Get Your Do Up, Gabby of Gabrielle's Bridal Salon, and Dan of Eli Thomas. We met at Gabby's beautiful salon in downtown Los Gatos and brainstormed on ways to deliver the most valuable information on beauty and attire to the students of the Wedding University on February 8th.

After an hour and a half of discussion, we came up with a lot of fun and brilliant concepts which ofcourse I cannot reveal here but I promise students of TWU that you will learn SO much from these experts!

Some topics that will be presented in a creative way:

1. How do you select a wedding dress that best suits your body type and your wedding venue?
2. How do you choose the right hairstyle to fit your facial features and wedding gown?
3. What are all the attire options for the guys? How important is it that their choice of attire matches the girls' dresses?

That's all that I can reveal for now but you will not be disappointed at the valuable information this dynamic group has to offer on February 8th!

We are currently doing a casting call for models to wear some of Gabby's beautiful gowns and Eli Thomas' suits and tuxedos, featuring trends for 2009. More to come in a later post two weeks from now!
