Wedding Planning | Saint Simons Island Wedding Planning Retreat

Design Studio South Team

Each year the Design Studio South team gathers for an annual planning trip. Last year our team met at the ever so adorable vacation rental and micro event space called The Park. Follow to see a glimpse of our Saint Simons Island wedding planning retreat.

Annual Planning

Our annual wedding planning retreat typically takes place over four days and includes business development mixed with a healthy dose of relaxing and recharging. 

The purpose of our Saint Simons Island wedding planning retreat is to evaluate our goals for the year ahead, reflect on our wins from the previous year, take any new course we need to improve our services, and lastly, evaluate how we can streamline our processes.

Our goal-setting and annual planning portion of the retreat was lead by Jessica Zimmerman’s Annual Planning Course. This year was the second year we used this course for our big picture planning, and we loved it! It is the best annual planning course we have ever taken!

Relaxing & Recharging

We wanted to ensure there was ample time to relax and recharge during our Saint Simons Island wedding planning retreat so that we headed into our next wedding season feeling refreshed. So, during our planning sessions, we stayed fueled with healthy snacks to nourish our bodies and infused essential oils to keep our minds sharp. To fill our souls, we enjoyed plenty of walks along the island. Along with some delicious meals, a good dose of wine and bubbly was shared amongst the team to celebrate an incredible year. 

We are so grateful to have taken the time for our Saint Simons Island wedding planning retreat this past year. By prioritizing time for our business development and for the team to relax and recharge, we are able to offer our couples the best possible planning experience.
