The Cinderella Effect
There is such a huge importance to what you do that we many times lose focus on. I want to reemphasize this with you today as it is truly something that we need to keep in mind at all times when helping to serve and dealing with our Brides.

Attire & Accessories
No matter what business you are in, you will always have a competitor who charges less. Further there will always be people who come into the industry as newbies and charge lower prices. Candidly, they should charge less. Many times I see some who will buy into that premise and subject themselves to matching or coming close to the pricing of those who they should not be compared to in the first place. Let me talk about avoiding getting caught in that mess of comparison and actually raising your prices where you feel they should be.
Just one single referral
Seems like a very simple thing to do, but how much would one single referral that books be worth to you and your business? Imagine if you could build a machine that brought your business referrals on a regular basis. There are in fact many wedding pros who use this as their only/primary marketing source. Let’s talk about the possibilities but first some questions:
If you don’t know the answers to these questions (not broad based estimations but more direct answers) than the first thing you need to do is figure them out quickly as these measurements matter greatly. Here is why:
Grant Brickner and Accent Weddings & Events has been an exhibitor for over 10 years and has been the MC for the fashion shows over the last 7 years.
"I have been in the wedding business for over 24 years and have participated in many bridal shows. I have been a vendor at the Bridal Shows hosted by San Diego Bridal Show for over 10 years. What sets them apart is Susan and Carrie have years of experience and know how to put together a show that is quality rather than quantity. They do great work in getting brides to the events. Their shows are smaller, more intimate and more affordable than the big "convention center cattle call" style of events. Their shows are more elegant and relaxed. This benefits the vendors, who get to spend more time visiting with the couples to build a rapport, rather than simply being a person who hands out advertising materials.
Their best assets are learning, implementing and improving after every show. Because of these attributes and the success I have had from these shows, I have become a long time advertiser and currently co-produce and MC their fashion shows. I highly recommend their shows especially to vendors who are the outgoing, personable, hands on types." - Grant Brickner
