the wedding planner's gathering

if you follow us on instagram or facebook, you've seen us post about a super exciting project we're a part of...the first-ever wedding planners gathering. the sweetest angel of love & splendor put this whole shebang together and i thought i'd share some more info about it today...especially because early bird registration closes tonight {tomorrow?} at midnight! here are the deets:

WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT /

the WPG is a two-week, online learning event for existing or aspiring planners + designers, brides + grooms or any other creative professional. can't get to or invest in an in-person workshop? this is for you. beginning on may 16th, you'll receive a new video every day that covers a key design, planning or business topic. you'll have access to the videos for a year and can be viewed on your own time in the comfort of your own home {or studio or favorite coffee shop}. 

you'll also receive three freebies...a planning timeline, a rentals checklist + a wedding mishaps video. PLUS the opportunity to join in two live Q&A webinars.

this is a really unique opportunity and if we weren't involved, i'd personally be all over this. this is continued learning at its best...the chance to stay inspired, expand your horizons and learn about things you may have thought about...or not thought about!

WHO'S INVOLVED /

it's honestly a pinch-me-that-i'm-included group of instructors. these are the best of the best in the industry...a mix of floral designers, planners + event designers. the list includes: sinclair & moore {foundations of floral + event design}, jesi haack design {creative backdrops + displays}, beth helmstetter {creating a beautiful wedding, no matter the location}, lace & likes {life that inspires art - finding your authentic creative voice}, gather events {creating a cohesive stationery suite}, karson butler events {designing the culinary experience} alison events {breakind down the budget}, details details {behind the scenes, top 20 wedding day tips} + type a society {branding + marketing your planning business}.

WHAT MSTARR IS COVERING /

tablescapes!! our favorite. our bread + butter. we're sharing how to conceptualize, source + style three very different tablescapes...using the same table + some of the same items. we'll have our girl kaylyn from 1956 blooms on hand to share the floral love and some incredible rentals from borrowed blu, among other things. PLUS we're offering a fourth freebie: how to best shoot a tablescape for instagram!

WHAT IT COSTS /

until tonight {march 4th} at midnight, the cost for everything listed above {10 videos for a year, 4 freebies, 2 webinars} is just $249. yes you read that correctly. it's such a no-brainer, i shouldn't have to say more. so i won't. after tonight, the price goes up to $349. still wayyyyy wallet-friendly, right?

the new mStarr

it's a new year and with it comes the new mStarr...new logo, new site, new name. we've ditched the "event" and are now mStarr design. why? well we do more than events. sure we still specialize in weddings but we also design parties, showers, photo shoots...and i'm super excited to officially expand our services into interior styling, something we've been doing a bit on the side until now {and personally, ever since the hubs + i moved into #farmhousedialfano}.

in the coming weeks, you'll be able to find us at both mstarreventdesign.com AND mstarrdesign.com. admittedly, blogging has fallen by the wayside in the past year {we had a realllllly busy 2015} and up until recently, i actually planned to scrap it. but i thought more about it and the goal is to get back at it, at least somewhat regularly, even if just to share news or recent press. i did, however, discover that it doesn't seem possible to import old blog posts so this may be a true fresh start! but if there's anything you'd like to read about moving forward, we're all ears! 

welcome to the new mStarr. take a look around, let us know what you think and if you find anything that may need to be fixed or updated! there always seems to be some kinks to work through in the beginning. hope you enjoy.
