So as most of you know I am getting married. Now I originally wanted a fall wedding and that would have given me 6 months to plan a wedding and after realizing everything that went into planning I had a major anxiety attack. So we picked May 17, 2015. A full year from now. Nobody ever tells you all the crazy things that go into planning a wedding. Like having a baby, people leave out all the really important stuff that you need to know but nobody wants to really talk about.
On Sunday my MOH (maid of honor) and I attended our first bridal show. I have been to a bridal show before but as a worker when I owned a on-site hair & makeup business with a friend. So being on the other side was a bit overwhelming. People jumping at you getting you to sign up for everything. Bit of advice, DO NOT sign up to receive anything. Its a trap. They will call you and tell you that you win all these little freebies just as long as you come to one of their seminars for 2 hours. Wait, What...thats not what I signed up for. I thought I was signing up to receive information about your company not some timeshareesq nonsense.I don’t need a free hotel stay to the Dominican Republic for four days with nothing included. I just wanted info on your flower shop. 2nd bit, have a plan. Know exactly what you are looking for and keep that as your main focus. Don’t talk to any vendors that you don’t need to because thats where they will get you to sign up for their “giveaway”. Shmm. Bring a bag to store all the pamplets, cards, pens, etc... that they will give you. Its alot!!! Last but not least, have a cocktail!!! It will help!!
