Co-founded by Jasmine Cianflone, of This Moment Events, and M. Shannon Hernandez, of Sage & Time Designs, “I Do” DIY Expo is an educational experience for brides, bridal parties, and event professionals. The “I Do” DIY Expo not only features vendors who have designed vignettes to showcase their array of talents, but this educational experience also fills a much needed gap in the wedding industry by teaching, through a series of hands-on sessions, how to achieve the unique look brides desire and deserve on their wedding day.
The “I Do” DIY Expo is best described as a visual showcase of wedding design and ideas, coupled with hand-selected event professionals, who teach brides and other event professionals their craft. All of this is achieved in a relaxed, collaborative, and festive atmosphere.
A typical “I Do” DIY Expo schedule would be as follows:
12:30-1:00 Expo Meet and Greet/Check-in
1:00-1:15 Seminar speaker
1:20-1:45 Breakout Session 1
1:45-2:10 Breakout Session 2
2:15-2:30 Seminar speaker
2:30-2:55 Breakout Session 3
2:55-3:20 Breakout Session 4
3:25-3:40 Seminar speaker
3:40-4:00 Q and A Panel
Breakout sessions focus on various topics the DIY bride needs to know when planning the perfect wedding. Topics include the ins and outs of stationery design and assembly, how to design stunning floral centerpieces, setting up a dessert buffet that is cohesive, full of character and functional, using inspiration boards to organize all those creative ideas, and how to make sure you capture the entire wedding experience in photography that you will be sure to cherish for a lifetime. Seminar speakers hold discussions such as planning an authentic wedding, how to incorporate your personal story into your event, stationery etiquette and guidelines, and non-traditional spins on wedding decor.
We invite brides and industry professionals to gather your friends and family and head out to the next “I Do” DIY Expo. We are looking forward to meeting you and hearing all about your upcoming wedding!
