Trinidad & Tobago-based wedding expert and Editor-in-Chief of TrinidadWeddings.com Simone Sant-Ghuran, has 19 years of experience in the wedding industry has run the gamut and covered all aspects – from wedding planning for couples, teaching event management professionals, being a speaker at international bridal shows and hosting her own bridal shows.
Sharing on her inspiration for “Its Knot Difficult!’ she stated, “I first had the idea for writing a book during the pandemic. Sadly, that was a time when the event industry ground to a halt but the silver lining was that I had more time to think about a future direction! However, active work on the book started last September.”
She continued, “My motivation to do it was to give engaged couples who wanted to DIY their wedding, a comprehensive resource. Over the years, many couples have told me that after they become engaged, they have no clue where to even start. This book is a good place to begin the journey! Personally, it’s also a piece of legacy work for me, something to represent the time I’ve dedicated to this industry and a resource that will live on, after I retire!”
The book is filled with insider wedding tips, ideas and checklists and is an ideal resource for the do-it-yourself (DIY) bride or for anyone interested in learning the basics of wedding planning. It also includes a resource from The Naughty Grape Store, Trinidad on choosing your wedding drinks list.
