Weddings for Real

Dec 30, 2020

Hey there, I’m Megan Gillikin, and this podcast is for fellow wedding pros that know what it really takes to thrive as a professional in the wedding industry, because it’s NOT what they show you in the movies. spoiler alert, It takes more than the wave of a wand or the toss of confetti to take someone's special day from BIG idea to BIG success. But you knew that… in each episode I talk with other wedding industry experts to get real world tested advice on ways to better your business on the back end so that we can celebrate more on the front end. 

I’ve been referred to as a fairy godmother extraordinaire that can make the seemingly impossible happen but the reality is that I’ve been in the wedding industry for 15+ years, I’m a business consultant and international speaker, and a mom of three and so, it goes without saying I’ve seen some things and like many of you, I've mastered the rare art of coordinating chaos with a smile on my face, a coffee in my hand and gel inserts in my shoes. 

This podcast is a wedding professional’s safe space to laugh and dish about the glitz, the not so glam, and ALL things weddings, FOR REAL!

Weddings for Real is brought to you by The Planner's Vault, my online membership site for wedding planners who are hungry to grow, ready to hustle, and actively seeking community and education. In the vault, there are guest experts on many topics relevant to growing and cultivating a successful event planning business with new content added consistently, plus all of my templates that I have built out over the years, like How to Get on Preferred Vendor Lists, The Client Experience, and more. The mission with the vault is to elevate the industry (along with some amazing experts and fellow entrepreneurs) and I want it to be affordable so it's possible to stay invested in the community and yourself for the long haul.

The doors are currently closed for The Vault, but join the wait list now so you can be the first to know when the doors re-open.
