WPC Education | September

Valley Dale Ballroom!


This month's meeting was held at the newly renovated historic Valley Dale Ballroom.  Larry Clark spearheaded the renovations and reopening of the Ballroom.  The renovations included a new roof, remodeled bathrooms, some new pillars in the main ballroom and lots of paint inside and out, as well as eight new color-changing chandeliers!  We were treated to delicious appetizers provided by Made From Scratch, which Larry founded in 1983.  We also received some words of wisdom from a man who's been in the wedding business for many years.


* Encourage your brides to leave reviews

* A business often grows by word of mouth

* Customize your services to each bride

* Educate your clients on your business

* Differentiate yourself from your competition by starting with your team & leading by example
