VoyageDallas interview with Meredith Commender

Meredith, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?

I started Significant Events 10 years ago after spending 7 years as a high school English teacher. I had done some event planning in college and planned my own wedding in 2004, but that was the extent of my event planning experience at that point. The business was originally created in order for me to be a stay-at-home mom and just coordinate some events on the side. However, it quickly became necessary for it to become a full time business (along with being a full time mom!). It has continued to grow over the years, and we now do an average of 50 events a year including weddings, corporate events, social events, and charitable events. We also offer invitation and graphic design, and Meredith now speaks nationally on event industry topics.
