"Attending The White Dress Society retreat was the most valuable thing I've done for my small bridal boutique! Hearing so many inspirational and educational speakers, all who specialise in the wedding industry, has provided me with some really valuable skills which I can utilise both in the short term and long term to develop and grow my business. In addition, the networking opportunities to connect with like-minded business owners was absolutely amazing! I'll definitely be returning!"

“This is by far the best learning event that I have ever been to. As an entrepreneur, I love attending conferences and learning events to see to the different ways I can creatively and efficiently run my businesses. However, this event was SO SPECIFIC to my businesses that it was easy to relate and take action immediately. It is almost a no brainer to attend this event if you are a bridal store owner as it couldn't get more relevant than this. Aside from the incredible amount of learning, there is a wealth of knowledge from the attendee's, I've received process and experience shares from other bridal shops that will save me time and energy from doing research/trial and error myself. I wish I can say this is the best kept secret, but I actually want every bridal store owner to attend, so that they run their business with the highest integrity because there is enough business to go around.“

"ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE are the words that come to my mind when I reflect of my time at retreat over the last few days! Impeccable attention to every detail, inspiring guest speakers, and y'all created such an ambiance to Ask. Speak. Share! Thank you SO very much Beth + Charlotte for all the effort you put into this event to make it an indescribable experience!"
