written by


Embarking on your wedding planning, styling, and business journey? Here’s a revolutionary twist on tips from avant-garde wedding professionals for the modern-minded students and planners ready to redefine the art of managing clients and crafting business success.

Rewrite the Rulebook on Communication: 

In the age of instant messaging, go beyond traditional channels. Embrace social media, virtual experiences, and tech-savvy communication tools. Break free from the conventional and engage with clients in ways that resonate with the modern couple.

Co-Create Experiences, Not Just Events: 

Move beyond the expected and co-create experiences that transcend the ordinary. Immerse yourself in the couple’s world, understand their lifestyle, and infuse personalized touches that resonate with their modern sensibilities. It’s not just a wedding; it’s a curated experience.

Organize in the Cloud: 

Step away from the paperwork and embrace cloud-based organization. From collaborative planning platforms to digital contracts, modernize your organizational toolkit. Access everything from anywhere, ensuring efficiency and seamless collaboration with clients and vendors.

Agility is the New Superpower: 

Modern weddings are dynamic and ever-evolving. Develop a superhero-like agility to navigate changes swiftly. Creative problem-solving and adaptability will not only save the day but elevate your status as a modern wedding superhero.

Tech-Infused Creativity: 

Merge technology seamlessly with creativity. Augmented reality for venue previews, virtual reality wedding tours, or drone photography – explore tech innovations that add a futuristic flair to your creative offerings. Stay on the cutting edge of wedding trends.

Curate a Global Network: 

Think globally, even if your wedding is local. Build a network that spans the globe, collaborating with international vendors and bringing diverse cultural influences to your events. It’s a modern world, and your network should reflect that.

Experiential Storytelling: 

Move beyond traditional narratives and embrace experiential storytelling. Create immersive storytelling experiences through multimedia, interactive elements, and real-time updates. Let your weddings tell a story that captivates both in person and online.

Sustainability as a Signature: 

Make sustainability a non-negotiable part of your signature style. Modern couples appreciate eco-conscious choices. From eco-friendly décor to sustainable practices, infuse green initiatives into your weddings, showcasing your commitment to a modern, mindful approach.

Augment Your Online Aura: 

Your online presence is your modern storefront. Invest in a sleek, user-friendly website, leverage social media trends, and embrace influencer collaborations. Craft an online aura that resonates with the aesthetics and expectations of the modern, tech-savvy clientele.

Unlearn to Relearn: 

In the fast-paced world of modern weddings, unlearning is as crucial as learning. Stay open to evolving trends, discard outdated practices, and be willing to relearn. Your ability to adapt and innovate will define your success in the ever-changing landscape.
