Hey everyone! I’m back with a Wedding Wednesday post. Do you guys notice the new blog design?? I am so happy with it, and was ready for a blog change! These past few weeks have been so crazy, and finals are quickly approaching…not fun. Anyway I went to a bridal show this past Sunday with my mom, and I wanted to share with all of you!
This is my first bridal show I have ever attended, but I have been around weddings a lot in my life. When we lived in Vegas my mom worked for a really nice company that coordinated weddings. I would sometimes work the front desk on weekends and get to see all of the people nicely dressed, with their fancy food and hope one day I get to have a wedding that beautiful. Now that I am in the midst of planning our wedding I can honestly say I am overwhelmed. Joe and I both work, a lot – and I have a full class schedule as well. I was so excited to get out there with my mom and start buckling down on this planning thing.
If you’ve read my wedding checklist, you’d see we still have so much to do. We are about five months away and still don’t have a photographer or even an officiant – which I’m pretty positive those are important. We even have our cake already booked, why the cake took priority over the person marrying us…i’m not sure.
The bridal show was at our local town museum and it was the most perfect weather to be outdoors. We went around to each booth, but it is very hard to talk to people about their services when 100-200 other people want to do the same thing. We drank some champagne (or whatever) was in the Dixie cup and had a good time. I found several vendors that I plan on using, and even spoke with an officiant that Joe and I are going to set up a meeting with soon! I’d say the day was pretty successful and very informative.
I fell in love with this table set up
- Bring water if it is outdoors (They charged for water)
- Make printed labels with your name (& fiance) address, wedding date, and phone number (if you want) these came in handy, you will be filling out a lot of information for giveaways and booths that it is so much easier with the labels.
- Wear comfortable shoes
- Take a friend, sister, or your mom for help and advice
Joe and I attended a showcase last night as well, which I will talk about soon too!
From my married ladies – did you hire a DJ and if so was it worth the money? Any other tips?
