Improving the Wedding Industry

If we want the wedding industry to improve, we have to be better. In order to do that we have to stop lying to each other, and ourselves, about what constitutes excellence.

Nate and I just talked about this in the car yesterday and about the changes we're making in the next month. It's refreshing. Thanks for always being a voice for the better! Hope to see you in NYC in August. :)

I agree, but what do you mean

Let's start with improving relationships between creative partners. Inspired by MGM's King Dahl, I am getting rid of the word vendor in my vocabulary. The wedding professionals I know are far more creative than a machine that dispatches stale candy bars, and that is what the word vendor makes me think of. I'd like to see creative partners in the wedding industry really treating each other with respect. We can all start by choosing carefully the words that come out of mouths in a variety of situations. A simple change, like using "creative partner" to replace "vendor" has the power to act as a catalyst for seeing people differently. When we see them differently, we treat them differently. Be your best and expect the same from others. You'll be surprised at how people rise to meet your expectations.
