Planner Profile: Katy Simovski

Hello, everyone and welcome to our new blog! We have been working very hard to revamp our social media strategies to reach a broader spectrum of the wedding industry. This is just one of our efforts. Our Twitter and Facebook pages have been much more active in the past month as well, so be sure to check them out!

With that said, let me give you a little info on myself, the one behind these new marketing changes.  I have been with Trends To Traditions for 6 years and have enjoyed every moment of planning and designing for the clients of our business. As I am in my last strides of pursuing my MBA in Sports Art and Entertainment Management, I wanted to take on the task of managing the social networking for the company and build one for the sister company, Wedding Boutique North.  I’m very excited to take on this endeavor!

My background comes from Technical Theatre and Interior Design studies.  It is very fulfilling taking the ideas of brides and creating a wedding of their dreams, and my education has helped that immensely. However, experience has also been just as beneficial.  With about 100 plus weddings under my belt, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t.  Sometimes, that stems from how you market yourself. That’s when I wanted to get my feet wet with the business side of things. I’m glad I did.

As you follow our blog, Twitter, and Facebook, I encourage you to give me feedback on what you like and don’t like. We are striving to make an impact in the Pittsburgh Wedding Industry and want to use social networking as a new and mobile tool.  Not only that, we want to be able to answer your questions about your wedding ideas!  After all, that’s what we do. J  Either way, we can’t wait to hear from you! You can reach me at
