Learn tips on planning your dream wedding at "Social Light — The Art of Wedding Design" March 27 at the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa.
The workshop takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., followed by an after-party with cocktails, a chocolate truffle bar, a prize drawing and a swag bag takeaway.
"Planning for the big day can be more complex and stressful than most couples imagine, especially for the do-it-yourselfers," said Sandra Williams, founder of Social Light and owner of Finishing Touch, a wedding planning company. "This workshop will help couples creatively and efficiently work within their budget to prioritize, focus on what’s important and ultimately throw the wedding of their dreams."
Wedding brides and grooms attend sessions with local wedding professionals who will share their experience and expertise.
When planning for a good wedding photo shoot, for instance, keep in mind that sunset times change during winter and summer, and adjust your time line for good lighting during photo shoots, says Frank Amodo of Frank Amodo Photography.
There will also be sessions on beauty, floral arrangements, decor, photography, videography, entertainment and catering.
Attendees must register and purchase tickets before the event. Walk-ins will not be accepted.
Tickets cost $59 per person (plus tax), which includes admission to the workshop and after-party and one swag bag. Couples can purchase ticket packages that cost $99 (plus tax), which includes admission for two, admission to the after-party and a swag bag.
