Radio Show Interview

I had the honor of being interviewed by Terri Bork of Extreme Marketing Concepts yesterday on her radio show "Go Mind Your Business".  Despite both of us being under the weather (hence the deep, low voice... for those of you who do not know me personally, I usually don't sound like that!), it was a totally fun and great experience.  Didn't think it would be easy to talk about myself for 40 minutes... but it wasn't as hard as I thought! :)  If you want to hear the interview, click on this link: http://wp.me/p2UsKQ-cu.

A special thank you to Terri for asking me to be a guest on her show.  If you need help in the marketing department, I would totally recommend Extreme Marketing Concepts.  Terri really knows her stuff!

Last week I blogged about 2012 being a busy but amazing year for Events by Divine Creations - in fact it was the best one yet!  I could spend tons of time telling you all about it, but hey, they say a picture's worth a thousand words, right?!  So without further ado, here are pictures from some of the great events we produced in 2012.  I wanted to put a lot more, but uploading them took so long I figured if I pushed my luck another year would go by without another post!

Picture #1: Marlin's Bat Mitzvah at the Tampa International Jet Center; Picture #2: Allison and Eric's Wedding at the Renaissance International Plaza; Picture #3: Stacey and Brendon's Wedding at Tampa Yacht and Country Club; Pictures #4-6: RNC Reception for WellCare Health Plans at a private residence on Bayshore Boulevard; Pictures #7 and 8: Focus on Females HealthCare Symposium at the Tampa Convention Center; Picture #9: Joyoti and Eugene's Wedding at the Dali Museum; Picture #10: Tamar and Paul's Wedding at the Marriott Waterside. 

             

             

      

              

       

Bridal Show This Sunday

For all you recently engaged couples out there, one of the biggest bridal shows - The Great Bridal Expo - is happening this Sunday, February 3rd at the Tampa Convention Center.  While Divine Creations will not have a booth there, you can check out one of our floral centerpiece creations at The Chart House's table.  There is a fee to attend and you can get more info at www.greatbridalexpo.com.

Words of wisdom regarding bridal shows... there is no requirement for number of years you have been in business or number of weddings you have actually worked to get a booth at a bridal show.  All it takes is a little bit of money to pay the exhibition fee.  While there are very good vendors - like The Chart House and others - who display at bridal shows, there are also vendors who are new to the industry and have little to no experience.  Be prepared to ask questions, ask for references, ask to see pictures of their work and remember if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.  Rookies to the industry will often cut prices in order to build a portfolio... do you really want them to be practicing their trade at your wedding?  And the biggest tip... do not sign any contracts!  Book a consultation so that you have time to do your homework before meeting with them.  And if they say the discounted price is only good if you book that day - walk away.  You'll be glad you did!

Here is a sneak peek of the centerpiece we will have on display!
