I attended a Bridal Wedding Show yesterday in Ft Worth, TX and I really did have so much fun. This was my first Bridal show and i had no idea what to expect. It was a neat situation because my friend Kimi met me there and also her daughter Kati and Kati’s best friend Emily. Emily is also getting married so 2 sets of best friends to check out the wedding stuff made it special. Remember in my last post that I had to make a decision by last Friday on my venue’s for them to hold my date so I made my decision and gave them my deposit. I am officially committed to a venue and wedding date! WOOHOO!! That alone relieved some stress and now the fun planning can begin.
Once I got to the exhibition building where the show was being held, in the main hall they had a table set up to print out address labels with your phone number, address and wedding date on stickers. They were selling them 4.00$ for 30 or 6$ for 60 so I got 60 printed out. This was a BRILLIANT idea y’all!! There were over 100 vendors who were almost all doing a giveaway if you signed up. With the label you didn’t have to fill out all the forms, just slap a sticker on it and DONE!
Since I already had a venue locked down, I was interested in cakes, invitations, dresses, and tuxedos for Todd. I have never tried so many cake samples in my lifetime and I loved every second of it! I kinda got a sugar headaches and have to step away towards the end. One of the most fun parts of the day was the 5 photo booths that was there. This is one of the newest ideas now that are all the rage. It’s like the ones you’ve seen at malls and roller rinks and now you can rent them for your weddings. The benefit is that your guests actually go home with pics in hand instantly. I thought they were crazy expensive and will not be renting one for my wedding but I still signed up to win a rental (free is good and wouldn’t turn it down).
I also came up with a bag so heavy from all the pamphlets and brochures and free swag. I got a bride stress ball, a big fake diamond ring key chain, some nail polish, lipgloss, a jar with candy, a manicure set, some spiced pecans, bottle of water, a tiny stuffed teddy bear, a votive magnolia candle, lots of candy and my fave- a wedding planner booklet. I didn’t stay for the wedding gown fashion show because we needed to leave and eat real food to replace all the cake. I did make an appointment at David’s Bridal for an extra 50$ off coupon towards dress if we booked yesterday for day before March. I did come home with business card of a really cool place to print my invitations so I’m very happy about that. I got a few coupons for Todd’s suit or tuxedo and i walked away with some ideas for decorating.
I really want to go to another Bridal Show if there is one in DFW metroplex. If anything to get free swag and eat some of the best cakes around!!!
All in All my weekend was a great one and I’m getting excited more and more about my wedding planning.
I have some fun photos to share but Blogger is acting weird. Have any of you had problems lately with adding photos? What's your work around if so?
Happy Monday Y’all!!!
