Wedding Show Tips For Brides

I'm getting started a bit early on this post, only because I was asked by a bride a few questions about the wedding show.  This years Wedding Wishes Formal Affair will be on November 8, 2009 from 11:30 am-4:30pm.  Here are a few good tips for you brides who are planning on attending this year:

*Set up a wedding email specifically for the show.  You will get tons of emails from vendors after the show, and you don't need to have your regular email spammed.  This way you can sit down one day and go through your wedding email to look for specials/deals vendors may be having.

*Make labels with your name, address, phone number, event date, and email on them.  This will save you tons of time since you will need to write this information down at every vendors booth you decide to go to. I actually learned this from a bride on our first wedding show we had a booth at!

*Never feel pressured into anything.  Remember, you are going to the wedding show to meet all the different vendors, not to sign contracts.  If you do find a vendor that you're sure you'd like to book-then great! Feel free to book them if you can.  Some vendors actually would prefer to meet with you at a later date to do so.

*If you meet a vendor that you'd like to book, make sure you follow up with them shortly after the show.  Most of the vendors book up fast after a wedding show, so if you want the best of the best, be sure to act on it quickly.

*Wear comfortable shoes! I can't stress this enough.  You will do a lot of walking around, and you'll want to be comfortable.

*Most of all, have FUN! This is your day to get out and have a full day filled with wedding things all in one stop.

See you there!

Jeanette and James joins us!

Jeanette and James are set to be married next September, and we couldn't be more thrilled.  There's something about September weddings that make my heart skip a beat.  Maybe it's the beautiful fall weather, or the warm fall colours that make September so inviting.

Over these next 11 months, we will work with Jeanette and James to create a beautiful italian wedding.  They want a simple, but elegant wedding and want to ensure their guests get nothing but the best!

Keep your eyes open for updates and photos as we plan this beautiful couples wedding!

Happy Planning!

Candy buffets make wonderful favours!

We LOVE candy buffets.  Period.  Everytime I hear a bride mention that she may be interested in a candy buffet, my heart literally skips a beat! There are endless amounts of ideas for them, and you can get really creative.  They also aren't pricey, which makes for a happy bride!

Your guests will remember picking out their own candy and filling their little box full of treats.  A cute monogrammed box makes it complete.  We've had the treat to having a few weddings this year with candy buffets, and they've all been a great success!

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
