What is your #1 tip for booking more weddings related to the topic you’ll be speaking on?

Using generic language on your website or in your social media posts will eventually make you irrelevant. If you try to sell to everyone, you end up selling to no one. Instead of targeting all couples who are getting married, niche down, and don’t be afraid to speak directly to who you want to work with. For example, if you plan weddings primarily for affluent African-American couples, call out differentiators like “In-depth knowledge of African-American culture and wedding traditions” or “Exclusive contracts with the top wedding vendors.” Not only will you rise above the pack but you will find joy in working with more clients who you consider your “favorite.”

Presentation Topic: Make Your Website More Inclusive & Book More Diverse Couples

What is your #1 tip for booking more weddings related to the topic you’ll be speaking on?

Use inclusive language! Weddings are supposed to be about love, but not all couples feel the love from their vendors who (often unintentionally) have a website that makes them feel excluded. This mistake could be scaring away your ideal couples, costing you big bucks, and contributing to a bad reputation.
