I'm Lauren O: Mom, Wife, Wedding Planner and creator of Wifey for Life
While planning my own wedding I longed for education and information from trusted wedding professionals. I went to so many bridal shows and would leave disappointed and overwhelmed. Once I began planning weddings for a living I decided it was time to offer an alternative to the bridal show. So, we created one!

Wifey for Life is an educational bridal workshop where New England’s premier vendors can educate brides from all over New England about the different facets of wedding planning. Each session is presented in a classroom setting but there is plenty of laughing, socializing and champagne. Just like college!
Throughout this series we will cover every component of wedding planning from curating your theme to choosing the right linen. Brides will be treated to bubbly, delicious food and a special gift.
Sessions are limited to 30 brides. No crowded banquet halls, generic handouts and useless raffles. By keeping this workshop intimate it allows you to have one on one time with vendors, build relationships with other brides and absorb the information being presented.
This workshop is for every bride that has felt overwhelmed by the planning process and underwhelmed by the bridal shows. It’s for the bride who wants to mix and mingle with other brides and hear advice from New England’s premier wedding professionals. It’s for the newly engaged as well as the halfway there bride. This experience is for every bride!
There are so many vendors out there and the web is full of so much information. So, who do you book? What questions do you ask? By meeting vendors in a relaxed, non bridal show atmosphere you will be able to listen to advice, ask questions and leave feeling prepared to tackle your wedding to do list. There is no obligation to book any of the featured vendors and you will not be sold anything during the workshop. This is a purely fun and educational experience!
Absolutely not! I understand that many ladies, such as myself, begin planning for their wedding well in advance of the actual ring. This is a no judgement zone! If you’re “preplanning”, we’re cool with that. At least when you actually get the ring, you’ll be well informed. If you are engaged and want to bring your single bestie for the experience, do it!
Awesome! No really, we have created an amazing bridal experience. All sessions will be held at the vendor’s studio or a venue related to that session’s topic.
Sessions typically begin at 11am with registration, followed by a cocktail brunch social and introductions. We then begin the workshop and allow the featured vendor to take over. Once their presentation is complete the floor will open for any questions. After that brides are welcome to mix and mingle.
No! But trust us, you’ll want to stay as long as possible. We understand that people are busy. Your ticket reserves your seat, guarantees you a swag bag as well as the cocktail brunch and mixer after the workshop. Attend what you are able to, if nothing, register for the swag!! It’s amazing!
Yes! Of course. We have tons of sponsors for our swag bags. Our sessions swag range in value from $75 to $150!
Each workshop attendee will receive worksheets that will assist them in their wedding planning. On the day of, your place setting will have a workshop folder packed full of worksheets for budget planning, vendor checklist, timelines, and many more.
Yes. The gifts are personalized so we’d like to know how many ladies will be attending and what your names are so that we can have your special gift ready for you.
The purpose of these workshops is for you to gain a better understanding of what goes into planning a wedding and for the vendors involved to gain a better appreciation of what your needs as a bride are. Plus, there will be champagne!
I understand that weddings are expensive so I work really hard to keep the ticket as affordable as possible. The price for each session will vary. However, the workshops will be affordable. Also, this workshop is designed to save you money! I know that after hearing these amazing speakers and learning the ins and outs of wedding planning you will be better equipped at making the right financial decisions for your wedding.
Yay! I’m really glad that you have chosen to enroll. Trust me, you will not regret it. This is a bridal experience like no other. Check our workshops page for more information and to register for upcoming sessions.
