WEdding Planning | Bridal Shows | & Your Big Day!

I told myself way back when that I would never do a bridal show. It just isn’t “me” I said…hocking your wares to a mass of people, trying desperately to get them to just talk to you in a less-than-ideal venue with lots of black drapery hanging…no thanks.

When Bella Sera approached me with their idea of an exclusive, invite-only bridal show, I thought, “never say never”! This past weekend, I was in the Platinum Bridal Show at Wenatchee’s Performing Arts Center hosted by Bella Sera!

I was really excited at the prospect of being able to decorate our space in whatever we chose! And, I was SO lucky to partner Etcetera and Bloomers, the very best home decor shops in town, who allowed me to borrow items to decorate!!! And let me just say, I would have been at a complete loss had they not so generously donated their materials, their time and their talent! Janine, from Bloomers just wants to make weddings in Wenatchee as pretty as possible, and she helps in whatever way she can! She has created several amazing bouquets for my brides this past year and has spent more than her share of time contributing ideas and, as I said, materials (home decor and other) to a variety of vendors in the area! And, Amy, from Etcetera, has an eye for design like no other!! She can whip up a display in no time flat…and it’s always stunning! A HUGE thank you to them! I can not recommend both of them enough to anyone planning a wedding…or decorating their house!

The thing I knew would be the best part about the show was talking to all of the couples about their wedding plans! This is something I love talking about with all of my couples. I want to help them in whatever way I come up with ideas, or to find the right vendor…I am seriously in love with this aspect of my work and it just makes me smile to think about all the little details that make up each couple’s unique wedding day! The energy from talking throughout the day to so many planning their wedding was electric…and exhausting! But, I loved every second of it!

My only wish for the show was that I got to spend time with the other vendors! There were really fantastic vendors represented, including: Busy Bea’s, Harry Richie’s Jewelers, Martin Scott Winery, Nicole Conner Photography, Lynette Smith Photography, Stephanie Fry Photography, Pine River Ranch, Todd R. Kenaston Music Productions, Full Bloom Flowers and Plants, and Two Chefs Catering!

Cheers to a successful day!!!
