Speaking with the wedding professionals there, I gained valuable insight into the wedding industry, what brides are looking for, and what challenges other vendors are facing. Many brides today want a beautiful, memorable wedding that fits their budget. Wedding planner Marina Rieken, of Affordable Dream Weddings & Events, provides amazing all-inclusive wedding packages on an affordable budget. Take a look at her website - she offers a great Wedding Planning Checklist and Ceremony Timeline.
I really enjoyed my conversation with Jeanie Agmon of South Florida Gets Married. Jeanie is a wedding officiant and wedding resource specialist who loves to work with clients to create a ceremony experience that is personal and meaningful. No two couples are alike, and she and her partner Dominic believe that each wedding ceremony should reflect a couple's unique journey. Visit their website to see the different types of ceremonies offered, as well as information about getting a Florida Marriage License.
