Some duties include organizing, planning, communicating with outside vendors, working with the public, problem solving, creating schedules, and learning time management. Some qualifications to attain an internship with the Bridal Extravaganza are having summer or holiday breaks free depending on internship date, familiarity with the computer and technology used, interest in the industry, enrollment in college, and the ability to put your best foot forward every day. Personally, some examples of the specific tasks that I have been working on include: working on the floor plan and communicating to the official decorator, planning events for customers, writing Editor’s pics for Texas Weddings Magazine, maintaining the inventory for the show, restocking after the show, and preparing for the two-day event. Some achievements include mastering the floorplan database (Lucidchart), familiarizing with other databases and inputting information, sending in videos to editors, Microsoft Office mastery, publishing the TV segments, providing great customer service, and overall challenging myself more. This internship has exceeded my expectations and has been challenging at some points, but it has also shown me that I am more of a problem solver than I thought.
When walking into an internship with the Bridal Extravaganza Show, Mrs. Veres lets you choose the field you would like to pursue in the future and gears your responsibilities towards that field. She is focused on expanding your skills and showing you new tasks. I really think this helped me learn more about the industry and provided me with numerous impressive tasks that will help me in the future.
I had the opportunity to go on a press relations trip for Texas Weddings Magazine to Sarasota, Florida. I wrote an article that will be published in the next issue along with this video promoting Sarasota as a Honeymoon Destination.
