DWHSA and Sandos present the
“South Asian Destination Weddings Workshop”
Join us for this four-night workshop at the Sandos Cancun Lifestyle Resort focused on South Asian destination weddings! The training starts with a hands-on introduction to the special packages offered by Sandos Hotels & Resorts for this niche. Then, Brenda Fernandez (the CEO of the South Asian Wedding Institute) will conduct a comprehensive course (1.5 days) on the key aspects of serving the needs of South Asian couples planning destination weddings – from important cultural facts and the different types of wedding ceremonies and rituals to the gastronomy, music, decor, and garments involved in these ceremonies. You’ll also take part in fun activities such as wearing a saree and making a rangoli or garland. Her course includes a copy of the class materials such as a vocabulary list and a vendors list. Once you complete the workshop, Brenda’s institute will designate you as a “Certified South Asian Destination Wedding Specialist.”
