This is an exclusive networking group for Wedding Professionals who serve the high-end wedding market in Manhattan. There are three requirements to be a part of this meetup group.

  1. You provide professional services to brides and grooms.
  2. You serve the high-end wedding market.
  3. You are based in the New York City area (you can have offices/outlets in other locations).

This is a business networking group for wedding/bridal professionals in the categories Accommodations, Bridal Fashions, Bridal Jewelry, Bridal Party, Bridal Party Gifts, Cakes, Catering, Ceremony Sites, Dance Lessons, Decorations, DJ, Entertainment, Event Insurance, Favors, Flowers, For the Men, Health & Beauty, Honeymoon, Invitations, Live Music, Officiants, Photo Booth Rentals, Photographers, Pre-wedding Events, Premarital Counseling, Real Estate, Registry, Rehearsal Dinner, Rentals, Transportation, Travel Agencies, Tuxedos & Suits, Venues, Videography & Film, Wedding Planners etc., who serve the Manhattan high-end wedding market. The high-end wedding market is around 4% of the overall wedding market and typically constitutes of weddings with a budget of $100,000 or higher. 2011 saw 5,476 such weddings in Manhattan, with a total spending of approximately $820 million.

The idea behind creating this group is to get together a small group (preferably only one or two members from a category) of top of the line wedding professionals who use group synergy to capture the largest share of the Manhattan high-end wedding market. Individuals are like the five fingers on your hand. If you can get them all together, you have a fist. The advantages of numbers is huge. When operating as a group, or I must say, as a TEAM, 1 and 1 is not 2. It is actually 11. Eventually this will be a closed group where members will vote on other members so that the group on the whole will always have the best.
