Now surround yourself with your closest of companions as well as food, drink, and wedding inspiration galore. Imagine top-notch industry professionals are there with you in an incredibly casual setting - think cocktails and luncheons instead of going booth-to-booth - for an informal showcase of ideas... the traditional wedding show completely reimagined as an immersive island weekend getaway instead.
Gather up useful information from workshops designed to provide insight on how to make the day of your dreams a reality. Be a guest at a lavish mock-wedding for an evening while taking notes on what inspires you and mingling with other couples in their planning stages. All this informal learning paired with interludes of creativity (like a mixology class to create your own wedding day signature drink) and tranquility (golf or yoga on the beach, anyone?) in the perfect island setting.
Take a much-needed break from the norm and immerse yourself in our wedding workshop weekend.
Your mind (and your feet!) will thank you for the dancing and walks on the beach instead of trudging around a convention hall.
FRIDAY - February 24, 2023 | 6:00pm – 9:00pm | Meet the Experts
Throughout your planning you may attend many wedding shows, chat with lots of professionals and often walk away a bit overwhelmed. Join us for an opportunity to really get to know wedding professionals, learn what they love about working with wedding couples and why they do what they do. We have gathered many of our favorite professionals in the industry to be here to connect, share ideas and inspiration with you. Unlike a “booth show” we know having a conversation is a much better way to connect so this event is designed as a fun cocktail reception with vendors networking outside of a “booth” setting so you can sit down and really get to know them to see if they will fit your style, esthetic, and vision.

The King and Prince Team will be sharing all kinds of fun “bites” along with creative signature drinks and bar service. Be sure to come hungry (and a little thirsty)! After the reception ends, feel free to relax to entertainment in our ECHO Bar and Patio, take a moonlit walk on the beach or head to your room to get your rest for the next fun-filled day!
