How To Meet And Mingle With The Right People

Going to a wedding ceremony is not just about eating and dancing, it's also an opportunity to meet people and mingle with the right crowd.

We have all read the How To's for all occasions, from dress codes for weddings, to suitable outfits for a job interview.

But then, what we don't realize is that a high percentage of people that attend weddings are there to network - that is, to meet people ( their potential suitor, a business associate or a long lost friend.)

Basically they attend this function to network, socially or in the business world. So today, I will like to equip you guys on the most important "HOW TO" you'll read in a long time.

Before I give out my confidential tips *adjusts bow tie* I want to tell you a very important quote a wise woman told me. She said, "You should always dress accordingly. If you are going to the Hamptons, make sure you look as good as the Hamptons people. Don't dress like you're going to a birthday party next door."

So without lingering any further, I am going to give you the top tips on how to network at a wedding. Enjoy.

  • Always Make Small Talk:
  • Be A Fashion "Killa" a.k.a Cinderella mode:
  • Confidence is Everything:
  • Always Wear a Smile also Bring a Gift:

So guys, next Saturday when you're getting ready for a wedding ceremony please indulge me! Remember to smile, you are a STAR!
