Hi! We are Stephanie and Jeff Padovani, a husband-wife power business duo.
We accidentally started our adventure in the wedding business way back in 2000. We wanted to combine our love of music, passion for working with people along with our expertise in business marketing, advertising, and sales, so we formed The DJ Solution, an entertainment business specializing in “non-cheesy” wedding entertainment.
The response from brides was huge! What started out as a way for us to make an “extra $500 a month” quickly became a full-time wedding business grossing over 6 Figures each year. We were finally able to leave the corporate world for good.
After seeing how the economy and the recession has affected many of our wedding professional friends…business is down 25% or more for some of them…we decided we had a responsibility to take what we’d learned and share it with them.
We help wedding professionals…who are really good at what they do, but not so good at booking weddings…build a 6 Figure Wedding Business THIS YEAR, without fighting with “price shoppers” or wasting money on expensive bridal advertising that doesn’t work.
The wedding business should be about doing what you love, having fun doing it and getting paid what you’re worth. We don’t believe any wedding vendor should waste hard-earned time and money with over-priced marketing that doesn’t work or struggling to convince brides about your value.
We are ONLY interested in cost-effective (or free!) marketing and business solutions that work for the wedding industry…and our mission is to sift through the BS to bring you the best of what we discover.
That’s what Book More Brides is all about…sharing the wedding success secrets we’ve learned with wedding vendors across the world! Contact us anytime with your questions, comments or complaints about the wedding business.
