Fall seems to have just shown up one day here in Austin and the weather became amazing out! We know you all are having a fantastic time with your clients and all those spectacular fall weddings. And to keep up that great service you provide all your wonderful clients, here’s the details for our October NEAWP meeting entitled “Could you just…”


When: Wednesday October 2, 2013 from 11a-1p
Where: BlackFinn Ameripub in the Domain
What: “Could you just…”, we are asking the vendors to give more insight on that ‘free’ question
RSVP: Just click here and remember it’s $30/members & $50/non-members


How often have you been asked (or have you asked) for something ‘in-kind’, free, trade, donation for a GREAT cause??? We all have been in the position to weight in our budgets what we are able to do for free, or even discounted on a yearly basis. And we all have asked (and been asked) for just one small favor at some point.
Well now the vendors are going to get a little more in-depth on what that means to their business and bottom line. How many times they get asked? What really happens when they say yes to a donation or something for free? What can be frustrating about donations? How they pick and choose when/where to donate?


We will have vendors from the following areas to speak on all these questions, then take some of your questions at the end.

  • Rentals: Delores Crum, Premiere Party Central
  • Caterer: Myra Adkins, Word of Mouth Catering
  • Lighting: Katherine McCommon, ILD Lighting
  • Floral: Matthew Blissard, The Flower Studio
  • Dessert: Lori Schneider, The Cupcake Bar
  • Planner: Amy Mader, Platinum Weddings & Events
  • Hotel: Scott Ertresvaag, The Driskill Hotel
  • Photographer: Andy Sams, Andy Sams Photography
  • Bridal: Amber Hart, Julian Gold Bridal

We are looking forward to a great discussion about something that gets asked all the time in the event industry, but doesn’t talked about.
