Ali Phillips, Wedding Consultant in Chicago, Attends Annual Association of Bridal Consultants Conference

I "Fell in Love with Indy" last week when my assistant, Kristin Weis, (seen above in the picture) and I attended the Association of Bridal Consultants Annual Business of Brides Conference. This is my sixth annual conference I have attended and was excited when they decided to host it in the Midwest this year. The Indianapolis wedding planners from ABC did a great job planning this event and event greater that they ordered up 60 degree weather in November! There were 40 wedding planner attendees from Chicago as well so it was so fun to spend time with people from my hometown.

I attend many conferences throughout the year and this is one that is not only educational but also fun. Next year will be hosted in Arizona and I am so excited to see what the Arizona ABC planners have in store for us.

The highlight of the conference for me was seeing Cake Designer Diva Sylvia Weinstock speak to our members. She shared a very candid conversation about wedding cakes and life in general and the fun story about how she found her glasses that has become her signature brand look years ago in Florida. I have met Sylvia a couple of times at the Engage Conferences and it was so nice to see her again.


I also had the opportunity to spend time with my friend and one of my business advisors, Rebecca Grinnals of Engaging Concepts. You may have seen information on the blog about her amazing luxury wedding conferences I have attended in the last year.
