    “Mastering Conflict Resolution”

    Saving Your Clients, Relationships and your Sanity




    Please Note: We are completely sold out and have a waitlist. Guests, if you've registered and know that you will not be able to attend, you'll have until Monday at 11:30 PM to let us know to apply a credit towards a future luncheon.

    Working in the wedding industry is so fun and rewarding!  Our entire business is built around love, happiness, and helping couples begin their new lives together. So what’s the problem? Our brides, couples and parents are spending a lot, they expect nothing less than perfection AND are incredibly emotional about their event….pretty much the perfect storm to create major conflict! When it comes to weddings, the stakes couldn’t be higher, so it’s really no wonder that we face so many challenging situations with our wedding clients.

    Whether you’re new and feel sheer panic when things don’t go smoothly, or you’ve been around the block and could just use a refresher and a few new tips to add to your arsenal, having a solid plan to manage problematic clients is crucial for any wedding business owner.  We’ll discuss strategies to prevent conflicts in the first place, tips to identify PFT (potential for trouble!), and what to do when things go south. You’ll learn practical words, phrases and techniques that calm things down quickly so you and your couples can get back on track, clues that you might need to break up with your client, and how to mitigate blowback if you do need to cut ties.
