About this Episode

We’re back in 2018 and so excited about all the awesome topics we’re going to tackle and the phenomenal guests we have on deck! Let’s have a quickie and catch-up!

*Big Takeaways

Here’s our news, in a nutshell: Michelle (Allure Consulting) moved to the Bay Area! We got through the holidays with our respective families and all the plans! Both Michelle and Christy are actively taking 2018 wedding inquiries! Happy New Year! Hit up Christy Matthews Events, or Allure Consulting if you need a wedding planner, a wedding consultant to help you tackle your budget or vision board, or any help at all with wedding-related issues.

Historic hotels are beautiful wedding venues. They may also be haunted. Do your research!
We reconnect with a listener that asked us about our thoughts on her side gig, a cake decorating business. Initially, we said, Don’t quit your day job! In a supportive way. And now that this listener is officially starting her business - we congratulate her and encourage her to ignore the haters! When you put yourself out there, you may get some reviews that aren’t glowing and that’s ok! Learn and move on. Dwelling on the negative just sucks.
Another friendly reminder to hire vendors you really connect with and then TRUST them to execute the vision. If you trust your vendors, you sleep better and you’re not stressed out and obnoxious about wedding planning.
