Bridal Expo this weekend!

Months and months of preparation go into invitation suites for the two bridal shows that we do each year {Bridal Expo in September and Bridal Fair in January}. It is for all of our new brides each year that we create and design what we believe it is you are looking for, before you even know it. It’s a job cut out for magicians, really! With this Sunday, September 30 being the Bridal Expo here in Edmonton, we have three brand new invitation suites {including menus, table numbers, place cards… you get the idea} that have been designed for your hands to touch and eyes to see. {I sure know I have been gushing over Charmaine’s shoulder as she has been working on them.} I can’t wait to finally share them all with you this weekend, but I begged the oh-so busy Charmaine to let me do another sneak peak of what you will be seeing and she was so kind to provide me with some photos! See for yourself below!

For any brides planning to come by on Sunday, I have some first-timer tips for you. Since this event always falls on the same day as the CIBC Run for the Cure, parking downtown will be a little tricky so be mindful that crowds and traffic will be much larger than that of a usual quiet Sunday morning. Dress and pack lightly – it fills up quickly with three generations of women {or the odd groom} traveling in packs so temperatures go up quickly. Bring a smaller shoulder bag that packs things like pens and paper nice and flat so your hands are free to check out all of the things that will be available to pick up and examine. Make sure your phone is charged the night before {if you’re anything like me, I go to the grocery store and snap photos of things I see on sale so that I can remember at a later time} you will be seeing a ton of stuff in a short amount of time, so having it to reference in your phone to remind your fiance later might be easier, rather than rummaging through the bag of catalogs you will be receiving. Mainly though, just take the experience for what it is. You’re wedding happens once and these gatherings that bring your wedding party and families together are what should be cherished. Planning a wedding should really be a full-time job, but I found it to be the thing I missed most when it was all gone. {I should make clear that I almost went through very minor-depression last year when my sister’s wedding was over – not even my own!}

See you on Sunday, brides!
