Meg: Speaking in San Francisco & Seattle | A Practical Wedding

This Sunday, 4pm, San Francisco

What are you doing this Sunday, San Franciscans? No plans yet you say? Brilliant. Perhaps you would like to come hear me speak at Fizz & Frills, a stylish wedding event hosted by Utterly Engaged. This Sunday at 4pm I’ll be speaking on, “How to be a Bride and a Wife on your own terms” (or, the foundational question of APW), with Weddingbee‘s Editor-in-Chief. Also, APW Editor Kate and I will be hanging out and chit-chatting afterwards. I think you should meet us there. Tickets are $15, and you can come early and shop. Let’s pack this Q&A with super-smart ladies asking super-smart questions, making it a killer off-line discussion.

Meg: Speaking in San Francisco & Seattle | A Practical WeddingSeattle, Sunday October 9th

I’m delighted to announce that I’ve been asked to moderate the Offbeat Empire panel at Geek Girl Con in Seattle on Sunday October 9th. I’ll be talking to the ladies of Offbeat Bride, Offbeat Mama, and Offbeat Home (including Ariel herself, and OBT moderator and APW Sponsor Ang) about building a business in a geeky industry. The panel is titled, “Rocking the geek niche: Nerdiness is your superpower” and I think you should come see it. Tickets are $30, and earn you admission to Friday’s Offbeat Empire Party at Urban Light Studios. I find this speaking event particularly amusing, since I come from a geeky family (mathematicians, scientists, Star Trek lovers, we’ve got them all), and am the only non-geeky person in the crew. Though I am a professional blogger, hum.

So come, hear me talk in San Francisco or Seattle, and say hi afterwards, yes? I’m a very entertaining speaker, and I’m speaking with the very smartest of women.

    Meg, do you know what time the panel is on Sunday? I was already planning on heading back to the Puget Sound area sometime in late September/early October to do some wedding dress shopping with my mom on Saturday but if I can party Offbeat style Friday night and hear a panel of smart women on Sunday then that makes my drive from Idaho soooo much more worth it.

        I guess I’ll just hang on for a bit before I buy a ticket (they’re not going to increase prices too soon, right?). It looks like the conference runs until 7pm on Sunday…ideally, they’ll put you in the morning and I can hang out with Linsey and the other lovely Seattle ladies contemplating drinks afterwards.

      We don’t even know yet. We JUST found out it’s on Sunday. On the plus side, we get to recover from post party hang overs.
