Decor: The Academy for Planners & Designers

December 19, 2009

We are excited to announce the upcoming Wedding 360's The Academy for Planners + Designers program. When Jubilee Lau and Jean Marks, founders of Wedding 360, first began talking about this idea, many of us on the Pink List were thrilled. Isn't it about time?

Date of Academy: March 14, 2010 to March 16, 2010

Location of The Academy: The St. Regis San Francisco

Registration is currently open.

There are so few opportunities to meet with seasoned professionals and to learn from some of the industry's most respected insiders. The subjects range from design, business operations, production process, marketing, pr, and much more.

Being sensitive to the needs of floral designers, Jubilee and Jean were very quick to create an additional program aptly called The Floral Summit which will proceed the following morning, March 17th. The Floral Summit will be an extension to the learnings from The Academy and will be an intensive 2-hour discussion which Amy Marella of Hidden Garden and Nancy Liu Chin will be leading.

Sean Low, of The Business of Being Creative, will be present for the first hour to share his expertise on specific topics related to the floral industry. The second hour will be an open discussion led by Amy and myself.

The Floral Summit is held in an intimate setting, so space is limited to 15 floral designers; acceptance will be on a first come, first served basis and the cost is an additional $100 to participate(plus registration fees for TAFPD). This is open only to those who are confirmed registrant of The Academy for Planners + Designers. Registration can be made by contacting

Pink List Panelist, Gloria Wong, has been instrumental in the design of many of the key social events. Asiel Designs which is one of our favorite floral designers in California will be featuring a design in the Designer Showcase along side Nancy Liu Chin Designs and Grant Rector of Grant and Co. Grace Ormonde of Grace Ormonde Wedding Magazine will also be one of the featured speakers. And you absolutely cannot miss our dear friend Tara Guerard of Soiree Charleston(and now, NYC). The agenda planned for the Academy for Planners & Designers is amazing so

we hope to see many of you there.
