I have just reviewed the Destination Wedding Video with Shavonnda Farquharson. What a cheerful discussion about destination weddings, and a few other topics!
The idea of creating a newsletter is awesome. What a great way to keep the hype around an event! Whenever you are trying to organize an event - or maybe a week-long set of events for guests who are traveling from several different areas, the newsletter is a great way to inform your guests and add updates as you go. I used this format for a family reunion that took place in Yellowstone National Park.
Shavonnda also gave great information on additional A la Carte Services that we should charge for - like welcome bags for the wedding guests, room block, etc.
Finally I really appreciate the idea of networking with other event planners for ideas and suggestions.
