Wedding-Expo-WorkshopNow that we can get married, you know you want something more than a quickie ceremony at the courthouse. You want friends to come celebrate with you. You want relatives to witness the ceremony and welcome your spouse into the family.

You just need to know how.

How do you choose the right venue? How do you order wedding cake? How do you keep within a budget yet include the little details that are important to you?

Well, now’s there’s an event that can answer those questions for you: On Sunday, Nov. 8, Dallas Voice Conference and Events presents the first Wedding Workshop. The three-hour event is free to attend.

Six presenters and a moderator will discuss all the details that go into planning a wedding. The afternoon will be divided into three segments — a panel discussion, a reception with tables set up by each presenter and a question-and-answer session.

The moderator for the event will be Donnie Brown, celebrity wedding planner and decor specialists who stars in Whose Wedding Is It Anyway, and Married Away, both on The Style Network,

“The unique thing about this workshop is it will delve into new traditions for the LGBT community,” said Leo Cusimano, Dallas Voice Conference and Events producer.

He compared the workshop to the Wedding Expo held over the summer at the Anatole. “The worksop will be an in-depth, comprehensive review of how to create your special day from flowers to fashion and cakes to catering,” Cusimano said.

Each participant will be given an e-workbook to use to continue to plan their big day.

The workshop is limited to 125 people. More information and register here.

Magnolia Hotel, 6070 N. Central Expressway. 1-4 p.m. on Nov. 8. Free.
