The Confetti Hour Podcast

Apr 20, 2023

With a combined 30-plus years of experience and hundreds of weddings produced in the Boston and New England area, Real Deal Wedding Insiders® Edna Dratch-Parker and Jeri Solomon have seen it all. Edna is the founder and creative director of EFD Creative—Event Planning & Design, and Jeri owns Jeri Solomon Floral Design. They combined their depth of knowledge and real-life experiences to write Guide to Smart Wedding Planning to help couples set a solid foundation for their wedding planning journey. 

You will hear all about Edna and Jeri's journeys and their tips on ​'Collaborating with Vendors to Enhance Your Business and Brand.' We will finish up with 'What They Wish Other Vendors Knew' and their 'Confetti Hour Confession.'
