The Experience

View More: know what you’re thinking- what is Cultivate all about? How is it different than all the other workshops and retreats out there?


This is an experience created by wedding professionals, so you know that it’s going to be beautiful. But above all else, it’s also created by business owners who are constantly striving to grow and learn in order to cultivate their business. Here are a few tidbits to know regarding the Cultivate Retreat experience:

General Sessions- General Sessions are designed to be applicable to all attendees, no matter what your specific business is. Be prepared to learn, be inspired, and get into some of the nitty gritty details that it takes to run a business. Topics include (but are not limited to and are subject to change):

* Harnessing the Power of Social Media

* Sales Secrets for Wedding Pros

* Legal Issues for Wedding Creatives

* Marketing your Wedding Business

* Pricing for Profit

*Styling your Brand

and more!

Meals– Breakfast and lunch will be provided each full day of Cultivate, and a welcome and farewell dinner will be provided!

Breakout Sessions– We will be offering breakout sessions each afternoon that will be specific to wedding planners, designers, and photographers, with some business-related sessions interspersed as well! The final breakout session will be a photo shoot in which all attendees can team up to design, style, and shoot tablescapes of their very own (which will also be featured on our sponsor blog, Every Last Detail)
