A place for our wedding commuity to connect


Our thoughts & yours

Just when you think it’s time to through in the towel, this happens…

Gwen Helbush, Where To Start, Wedding Management

It was such a pleasure seeing all the beautiful faces on April 21st for BAWN's Wedding Community Conversations.  Thank you for attending, if you were not able to attend, we missed you.  I hope you enjoy seeing the beautiful faces captured by Dawn Uhalley Photography!

I get asked a lot "when is the next BAWN event?" I would love to have BAWN events every few months; regrettably that is not achievable given the number of local networking events.  The competition for your limited time, attention and money have become too much of an uphill struggle for me to carry alone.

I love our wedding community too much just to give up.  I’m very grateful for your enthusiasm and excitement to attend more BAWN events.  I will hold in-person BAWN events as often as I’m able.  That said…  The universe provides, just when I think I can’t schedule another BAWN event for a long while.  One of our wedding community angels says "Wait, Gwen, I want to help!"

Everyone, please say a huge thank you to Ranjan Dey of New Delhi Restaurant.  I ran into Ranjan as he was leaving a networking event.  He said “I want to do a BAWN educational event about Indian Weddings,” I said “bless you” We exchanged a few emails, and the rest, as they say, is history.  We still have work to do to create a fantastic afternoon for you, but this is happening people!

I continue the BAWN Blog to keep us connected in between events and as an ongoing conversation.  Content for the blog is a challenge because I don’t want it to be just my thoughts and opinions; it is meant to reflect us all.  I was beginning to think I would have to start re-posting old stuff and posting less often when again the universe provided relief in the form of our friends at Aisle Planner emailing to say they like our support of the wedding community and could they help by providing content for the BAWN blog.  The angels sang, and I wept. 

I’m profoundly grateful for the kindness and support.  BAWN lives for you and by you, please if you want to participate in a BAWN event or provide content for the blog email or call me.  I need your help, and perhaps, more importantly, I want to partner with you to make BAWN and our wedding community strong!

I wish you a happy, healthy and profitable wedding season!
