  • Brides-to-be: Brides (and fans of all things weddings) are invited to enjoy beautiful meet-and-greets with industry insiders, glean inspiration for their own Big Day, learn planning tips and tricks from the pros, and revel in the nation’s most romantic city.

Panels and workshops will feature a variety of topics, including brand identity in the era of social media and more.
