» How to Prepare for a WeddingWire Networking Event

Networking is extremely important in the wedding industry, which is why we host Networking NightsMix & Mingles and now Workshops to bring local wedding professionals together to make new connections. While we try to host as many as we can in as many cities as we can reach each year, it can be hard for us to visit everyone – so you won’t want to miss out when we’re in your neighborhood!

We’ve given some networking tips in the past to help you make the most of networking events in general, but this post will help you specifically to be prepared for one of our networking events! Check out our tips below and you’ll be ready to mix and mingle with the best of ‘em when we’re in your town.

How to Prepare for a WeddingWire Networking EventSay “Yes” on your RSVP

This should go without saying, but you can’t reap the benefits of networking if you don’t show up! We’ll let you know when there’s an event happening in your area, so all you have to do is say “Yes” on your RSVP and attend the event. We’ll be sure to send reminders and keep you updated on anything you should do to get ready for the event. Making that commitment to attend will make it more likely that you’ll actually make it, and you’ll see just how informative and fun our events can be!

Don’t give away your business cards

Bring your business cards, but don’t pass them out like candy. Networking is about establishing connections with other wedding and event professionals, not just giving your business card to anyone you happen to speak with. Think of your business card more like closing a deal than an automatic action. We’ll also have WeddingWire swag and goodies available, so don’t forget to grab those, too.

Be ready to branch out

It’s great to get to know other Pros in your category, but don’t seal yourself off – there are opportunities to learn from other services categories and to build working relationships with related categories. If you’re a venue, take the opportunity to speak with a caterer to find out if there’s anything you could be doing that does or does not work well for them, and vice versa. You never know what you might learn!
