You may have heard by now, since we did a soft launch earlier this week, but we have an announcement!! We've created online planning option for brides called Absolutely Engaged! We've been working on this since Spring and we are SO excited that we have officially arrived at launch day.
What's Absolutely Engaged? It's an online wedding planning experience for the newly engaged bride. The planning kit is complete with monthly ebooks, checklists, interactive tools, exclusive webinars and content, and live Q+A sessions. It also includes access to a private Facebook community of Absolutely Engaged brides where there will be monthly content and discussions. Quite possibly our favorite component is our monthly "Girls' Night In", a live Q+A session that is free for all brides to register!
Absolutely Engaged was created with YOU, the bride, in mind! Before we started, we sat down with a panel of previous brides and grilled them about their planning experience. What did they love? What did they hate? What didn't they understand? What could they have used more guidance on? How would they prefer an online planning experience to be set up?
We also chatted with numerous wedding professionals in the beginning stages of this project. Photographers, videographers, DJs, caterers.... you get it. We talked about what information they think more brides need to know about their services, from their perspective.
We took all of their answers and got to work. Not only did those brides and wedding professionals help with the brainstorming, you'll even hear directly from some of them in the planning kit! Previous brides will provide tips and things they learned and we'll share exclusive webinars created by our speakers specifically for Absolutely Engaged. Nora and I will also host live Q+A sessions. Although purchasing the wedding planning kit is not quite the same as hiring a wedding planner, you'll still receive some guidance and answers unique to your wedding and needs.
Why did we create this? Well, first of all, we LOVE helping brides. Wedding planning can be stressful and confusing. There's so many options, details and things to think about. We can only help so many brides per year and we wanted to find a way to be able to help more. We also recognized that not every bride can afford a full-time planner, but they may still need more than month-of guidance.
That's where Absolutely Engaged comes in. It's for the bride who flat out can't afford a planner. It's for the bride who wants to do the planning herself, but needs guidance. It's for the bride who wants to be a part of a community. It's for the bride who wants to plan in her PJs, while drinking wine.
If that sounds like you, you can find out more here. Come join the wedding planning fun!
Or if you have questions, you can email us at email@example.com. We'd love to chat.
And bonus fact: I can guarantee you that we'll be drinking wine (and possibly be in our PJS) during our live Q+A sessions!
