The world of weddings can be very overwhelming for new brides and planners alike. Luckily, there are many resources provided bridal associations to help!
The National Association of Wedding Professionals (NAWP) has a website that compiles every different vendor you could think of for planning your special day. It is very helpful for brides who may not think about needing transportation services, or are in need of a great location for their honeymoon. The companies that are members of this association are experts with a track record in excellence and can accommodate to the every-day bride.
Sometimes planning a wedding can get off to a rough start. NAWP is one of many bridal associations that assists brides to find out information about trade shows that may be going on the area, choose a coordinator from the association or receive some inside tips about different aspects of the planning process.
For wedding planners, this is the best place to network and drum up some business. By becoming a member of one of these prestigious associations, you can meet other professionals in the industry. Brides can search the sites for planners in the area, which will give you a slight advantage. You also will receive information about the organization and industry through meetings and conferences. If you are really serious about getting your name out, I would definitely recommend spending the couple hundred to join. It really should pay off!
