  • A look at the global economic and social trends that are shaping today’s bridal industry and what they mean for wedding professionals at a local level. 
  • Fact-based research on the varying consumer behavior of brides and grooms in each of the four wedding budget segments, including their changing expectations and forecasted decision drivers. 
  • An overview of the “glocal” wedding movement and practical ways wedding professionals in Southern California can take advantage of these new opportunities. 
  • Truths and myths about “best practices” in today’s evolving marketplace, including which to keep, which to retire, and where to innovate.
