Wedding MBA 2017 in Las Vegas

It was a bittersweet trip to Las Vegas this year.  We arrived the morning after the horrific attack, and the somber mood and grief was certainly palpable in the ordinarily playful city.  Our hearts mourn for the lives lost in the senseless tragedy, and find hope in the hundreds of stories of heroism surfacing in the days after.  The Heather’s Glen team felt lucky that we could pay our respects at the iconic Las Vegas sign, saying a prayer for victims, their loved ones, and for the future ahead.

The Wedding MBA conference itself was truly fun and educational.  Embracing technology to serve our clients better is typically our huge takeaway each year.  Do you want us to text you regarding appointments?  Survey says yes.  Where can brides personalize their own snapchat filters for their weddings?  Click here.

In terms of trends, balloon art is still strong, and color is coming back after the blush and champagne takeover of the past 5 years.  (Check out Heather Benge‘s colorful floral print inspo here).  While live photo booths aren’t going anywhere, the props are evolving from mustache-on-a-popsicle-sticks to bubble machines.
