Press release from: McBride Events

/ PR Agency: OFD Consulting

RICHMOND, VA—Top Virginia Wedding Planner Jennifer McBride, owner of McBride Events, is thrilled to announce her return to the national event professional conference The Special Event this January 24-27, 2012, in Tampa, Florida, as she has been chosen to present:

Time Crunch, managing the delicate balance between clients wants and the professionals involved needs on the BIG day

Brides and their entourages are being bombarded with more and more opportunities and products to dazzle their guests and make their events memorable. As a planner how do you balance it all? It's our job to “make it happen” and we walk a very fine line, wanting to make our clients happy and leveraging/maintaining our relationships with the event professionals involved in the BIG day process. How do we manage the "stylized" photo shoots in between ceremony and reception, the film maker that needs his shots too, the make up artist and hair stylist that committed to 24 services, and don't forget the "angry chef that has $37,000 worth of filet mignon turning to rubber if we aren't seating guests promptly at the designated time.

“I’m delighted that our team has been selected,” says McBride. “The Special Event is a highly respected conference that aims to give event professionals the tools necessary to build their businesses. I can’t think of a better platform to use my expertise and experience to assist my colleagues with realizing their dreams.”

McBride will be joined by Richmond area wedding professionals Emily Hudspeth of Emily Hudspeth Hair Design and Makeup Artist, Meghan McSweeney of Meghan McSweeney Photography, Scott Strimple of United Wedding Productions and Meghan Ely of OFD Consulting.

McBride is no stranger to the National Stage as she spoke last year at The Special Event in Phoenix. More recently she joined Strimple at the Wedding MBA to present on Branding.

“My first passion will always be to give brides and grooms the best day of their lives,” explains McBride. “After over a decade in the industry, it’s also great to have the opportunity to share my expertise with a larger audience.”
