Splendid Sundays Volume 88

Sunday, June 10, 2012

A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

*Sandals Resorts released a new online destination wedding planning tool (and some of my insights on millennials are quoted in their press release)

*Engage!12, the semi-annual conference for the luxury segment of the wedding industry, was this past week. You can read my recap here, a recap by Cassandre Snyder here, one by Candice Coppola here, and two by Kelly McWilliams here and here.

*Queen Victoria as artist? Her private journals show she took notes through sketching and watercolor.

*Randy Fenoli has a new show premiering this week (June 15th) on TLC called Randy to the Rescue.

This week in The Splendid Collective:

*The 2011 Luxury Wedding Market (budgets of $96,000 or more) and Premium Wedding Market (budgets of $31,000-$95,000) reports are now available! You can purchase the luxury report here and the premium report here.

*How unemployment is calculated (it may not be what you think).
