Hello NW Wed Pro’s!
NWWP Network started off the year with the first meeting of 2011. Wednesday January 12th we met at The Bell Tower Chapel in Boring, OR. It is a beautiful wedding chapel and reception venue. Despite the earlier inclement weather warnings, we still had a great turnout.
The evening opened up with delicious food provided by Busy Bee Catering. They warmed our bellies with Wedding Soup, shaved parmesan cheese, home baked honey wheat bread and a ham & cheese platter. Mmmm, nothing better on a rainy night like we had.
NWWP provided bottles of wine, fruit punch, soda pop and home baked blueberry muffins with cream cheese frosting.
Vanessa’s Flowers presented a table full of beautiful flower & centerpiece arrangements.
Terry Taylor of “Dancing with Cows” gave us proven secrets to maximize your marketing & get more clients with
“How to Make 2011 Your Best Year EVER”. He shared a marketing strategy, outline, tips and more.

Before moving on to round robin introductions, we held door prize drawings. The first lucky winner received a Swiss Gear soft notebook carrying / brief case valued at $65.00. The winner was Lea McWhorter of Sophisticated Beads! Our second door prize of a floral arrangement by Vanessa’s Flowers went to Dave Ott of Born 2 Dance Productions Mobile DJ Service. Congratulations!

Let’s make this a fantastic new year!! Make an effort to connect and form business relationships with other vendors. Schedule to meet for coffee or lunch. Visit their retail location or studio. See or sample their services. Rather than just giving a card or name as a referral, give your clients more! Tell them what makes that vendor unique and why you recommend them. When the client repeats what you said, that professional is going to remember YOU the next time they give a referral.
Don’t forget the upcoming Brides Against Breast Cancer Nationwide Tour of Gowns!!
