A team of local business owners put their collective expertise to work by forming Bride School Workshop. This unique workshop teaches brides who are determined to plan their own wedding how to ensure the best day possible while maximizing their budget. Jamie Kirby and Kaci Muller are both experienced event planners who put together a group of local experts who together have planned, photographed, baked for, performed at, and designed for hundreds and hundreds of weddings.
Jamie says, "As wedding planners, we know that West Michigan is a big DIY market. We know there are a lot of brides out there on a budget who still want a beautiful wedding. Bride School is for the bride who is going to do it herself, but wants to know what to expect and how to streamline the process to help ensure the best day possible, all while maximizing her budget. Wedding planning is not as easy as putting together a typical dinner party, it's more like conducting an orchestra and coordinating layers and layers of elements that add up to one big, beautiful day."
Bride School Workshop is a full day event that covers everything from planning and budgeting, lessons on calligraphy and lettering techniques, planning entertainment, posing for photos, catering, design elements, floral arrangements, picking the perfect dress, and more.
