Hello ALL! I know it's been a minute since I last posted but I promise I have good reason! 2010 has really been good to me 99% of the connections I've made so far have lead to endless possibilities. Although I've been planning some kind of event since 1997 it wasn't until the last few years I decided to turn my passion into a business and I will be the first to admit it's been a true test of patience! The time I sat wondering where are the brides, and getting frustrated have been replaced with making lasting relationships with vendors and doing more research to make sure I stay in the swing of things. I remember starting on this journey and wondering who could I turn to? Am I the only planner going through this? Then I found my answer from the helpful vendors on the Wedding Wire(if you haven't checked out this site do it ASAP www.weddingwire.com!). It was through WW that I found that patience,networking and research are the most important things a new planner could do to have a successful business. I took those 3 not so simple things into consideration and I can honestly say they have made the beginning of 2010 a whole lot easier for me. I absolutely LOVE to pass on great advice so I am passing this on not to just new planners but seasoned ones too:

PATIENCE: Clients are coming! Remember Rome wasn't built in one day.

Networking: Talk to other vendors,pass out cards to EVERYBODY with hands! The very person you think can't bring you business just might.

Research: Know every aspect of your business go to shows and expos. Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. ~Chinese Proverb

Eventfully yours,

Looking for a venue in Houston???

Being a full service event planner finding venues and establishing relationships with other vendors that share your passion for making sure the client gets top notch service is very important. I truly believe that every person we cross paths with is for a reason. On the hunt for a venue for a potential client, I found a hall true to it's name My Dream Palace located at 130 Magic Oaks Dr. in Spring, Texas. Long before I walked into the palace I had the pleasure of meeting Linda(owner of this beautiful establishment)just in our phone conversations I knew we shared the same goal of making our clients dream events a reality! I found Linda to be a breath of fresh air,very down to earth and very attentive.

My Dream Palace is a functional hall that can accommodate up to 230 guest for any type of affair. Linda offers very attractive packages that include decoration and catering all for EXCELLENT prices. Want to more about this venue?
